Next port of call – the methanol bunkering station?

“Methanol’s physical and chemical properties are ideal for combustion engines and it has excellent ignition properties,” explains Toni Stojcevski, General Manager, Sales, Project Services at Wärtsilä. “It’s one of the best alternative fuels to meet current and future emissions targets in terms of NOx, SOX and particulates. There’s a readily available global supply with over 98 million metric tons produced every year, 80% of which is already transported by ships, and production is easily scalable to meet future demands.”

Interested? Join me at the Methanol, Ammonia and Hydrogen Professionals Group

What type of adaptation would an existing ship need to be able to make use of such fuel?
