The search for shipping’s green tipping point

Fuel change likely to generate insurance claims, say clubs

The wrong kind of bunkers can do serious damage to hull and machinery, thereby leading to insurance claims

Container shipping goes big on transition fuel

Emission control regulations have forced container lines to consider LNG as an alternative to scrubbers and low-sulphur fuel, with several carriers mulling conversions and newbuildings

The search for shipping’s green tipping point

Shipping is going to require clean, cheap energy to completely transition to zero-emission fuel options — and much depends on how quickly the cost of renewables can outpace carbon in the global economy

Newbuilding hiatus could be just the ticket

Whereas before size, durability and trade suitability would pre-empt the sign-off for newbuildings, adding fuel choice to the mix has brought a new layer of complexity for those responsible for vessel procurement
