The marine industry is moving towards decarbonisation and along with improving efficiency switching to an environmentally friendly fuel is a viable solution. Liquefied natural gas, or LNG, is a sustainable fuel that reduces environmental risks and harmful emissions. Using LNG as a fuel can also decrease fuel costs while ensuring compliance with increasingly stringent regulations.
Whether a vessel can be converted to operate on LNG depends mainly on the space required by the LNG tanks and additional equipment required. Wärtsilä can support you throughout the project starting from the initial feasibility calculations to a full project execution.
