The challenges of delivering a cleaner fuel
The operational challenges of delivering a cleaner marine fuel were addressed by Angus Campbell, BSM’s Corporate Director – Energy Projects, at the Gas Asia Summit recently held in Singapore.
During the ‘Technical and Operations of Small-Scale LNG and LNG Bunkering,’ session, Angus outlined the increasingly stringent IMO and European Union limits on sulphur oxide, carbon dioxide and particulate matter emissions that will restrict fuel choices over the next five years. These will accelerate the move to cleaner-burning fuels, such as LNG, with a concurrent need for new technologies and LNG fueling infrastructure in all major bunkering hubs.
BSM, working with Babcock International, have developed an innovative Gas Supply Vessel that will supply LNG to other vessels and shore-based facilities.
In parallel, BSM is also working with the Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF) to support the development and adoption of uniform operating standards.
