Waterfront Shipping Company Ltd., Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd., Westfal-Larsen Management, and Marinvest/Skagerack Invest will be welcoming seven advanced, clean-burning, fuel-efficient, 50,000 dead weight tonne vessels to the sea later this month.
This is first-of-its kind vessels capable of running on methanol, gas oil or fuel oil. This kind of technology will surely lessen the emissions while offering ship owners an efficient, feasible and convenient fuel alternative. Methanol is a biodegradable marine fuel that lessens smog-causing emissions like particulates, sulphur oxides and nitrogen oxides.
