GL and MAN have published their joint views on LNG as a fuel for container ships

According to Germanischer Lloyd, the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as ship fuel has recently gained more attention not only in Europe, but also in Asia and the USA.

GL says that ship owners interested in LNG as ship fuel are currently facing a number of questions regarding the costs and the possible benefits of using such technology. And they wish to learn whether exhaust gas treatment systems could be the preferred technical solution. At the same time, increasing ship efficiency with advanced waste heat recovery systems is becoming feasible.

This suite of technologies is the focus of a joint study undertaken by GL and MAN joint study on container vessel power generation systems. The study is available for download from GL, at www.gl-group.com/lng
