Who should attend:
Duration: 1 day
Increasing limitations on the use of conventional fuel and rising fuel prices demand new solutions for marine transport: Gas as fuel may be an alternative for some shipping companies.
This course provides an overview of gas as ship fuel with special focus on the components of a gas fuelled propulsion system.
Drawing on different examples from research and industry the differences between gas-fuelled and other conventionally propelled vessels (HFO/MGO) are examined in an interactive workshop approach.
The economic and environmental advantages of this fuel will be highlighted as well as the current status of rule development.
The course focuses on:
- Properties of liquefied gases
- Applicable rules and regulations
- Tank and pipe systems and ventilation
- Safety-related aspects of a gas fuelled propulsion system
- Ship type considerations
