Motorship Gas Fuelled Ships Conference 2013

Wed, 11 September 2013 - Thu, 12 September 2013

The 4th Gas Fuelled Ships Conference, in association with The Motorship, will bring industry professionals together to network, discuss topical issues, and exchange information and ideas.

The stringent Tier III regulations which apply to ships within Emission Control Areas will be coming in to force in 2015! These increasingly tough environmental regulations mean that further investment to reduce emissions in the shipping industry is needed now. However, this focus on green issues and environmental legislation potentially increases costs. Switching to cleaner fuels could be the solution, and with an abundant supply of natural gas, LNG is becoming the most promising maritime fuel. LNG is price-competitive with fuel oils but needs further investment in the gas supply chain to encourage wider use by shipping. A change to alternative fuels also brings about other areas for development such as ship architecture and the safety aspects for storage and handling of gas on board ships.

The Gas Fuelled Ships Conference is aimed at industry professionals who are looking to gain valuable information on using LNG as a maritime fuel and will include:

  • Ship owners
  • Ship operators
  • Engine manufacturers
  • LNG carriers
  • Shipbuilders
  • Classification societies
  • Ship designers
  • Ship yards
  • Port & Terminal Operators

In particular: marine engineers, marine superintendents, technical managers, maritime lecturers/professors, research team leaders, CEOs and MDs, shipowners, ship operators and managers, shipowners' technical departments who deal with fuel and lubricant issues, fuel and lubricant manufacturers and suppliers and individuals and organisations who are involved in emission control technologies.
