Current EU legislation puts tighter limits on emissions of seagoing vessels in European waters. Emissions Control Areas (ECAs) force the operators of vessels to use propulsion systems that result in lower emissions. One of the possible solutions is the use of LNG as a shipping fuel.
The European Commission's Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE), supported by PriceWaterhouseCoopers and DNV-GL, has launched a study on the perception of the risks and opportunities of LNG as a shipping fuel and on the gaps that exist in the regulatory framework for LNG-fuelled ships and the provision of LNG fuel.
You are cordially invited to discuss with us the preliminary results of this study. The workshop will take place during the European Maritime Day 2015, which will be held in Piraeus on 28-29 May 2015.
