09:00 - 09:45

Be sure to join us for
Marine Fuels Webinar Week 

Beginning Monday 8 March, we will be holding a series of daily webinars, each meticulously researched and organised in response to the ever-growing need to find compliant, efficient and reliable propulsion solutions. The webinars are designed to strike the right balance between transmission of key information and interaction with the expert panel assembled.

Our discussions are focused, cover the advertised subjects, and deliver registrants actionable insights.


Should you wish to join one of our expert panels please contact Tom Kenny.

Please join us for any or all of the following:


Converting vessels to run on LNG
as a marine fuel

Date: Monday 8 March - Time: 09:00-09:45 GMT

Watch now

LNG is widely seen as the most advanced of the future fuels - so much so that some countries are providing significant grants through to the end of this year to support equipping and converting vessels to run on LNG as a marine fuel. This webinar will take a case study approach to the technical and commercial feasibility of converting different vessel types to run on LNG.

Join us as we discuss

  • The technical case for a switch to LNG as a marine fuel
  • Case study presentations on converting different vessels for LNG operation
  • Operational experience and lessons learned
  • Yard availability and capability
  • Financial assistance for equipping and converting vessels to run on LNG as a marine fuel

Advanced atomic: a zero-emission energy revolution for ocean transportation

Date: Monday 8 March - Time: 11:00-11:45 GMT

Watch Now

Advanced Atomic is ’new nuclear’ marine propulsion akin to the advanced micro-reactor technology found on a marine molten salt reactor. Its proponents state it’s a commercially attractive, safe and reliable means of running merchant vessels with zero emissions.

Join us as we discuss

  • Hydrogen: the role of Advanced Atomic in floating production, storage and distribution of synthetic green fuels for shipping
  • Propulsion: the role of Advanced Atomic as zero-emission propulsion technology for large ships
  • Economics: the cost base of Advanced Atomic versus alternative energy sources
  • Safety: passive versus active safety principles and comparisons with other energy systems
  • Regulations: regulatory frameworks for large scale deployment
  • Supply chain: raw materials supply and waste management
  • Public debate: fear of the unknown. We don’t all want it yet, but public opinion is shifting

LPG as a marine fuel: lessons learned
from the pioneers

Date: Monday 8 March - Time: 14:00-14:45 GMT

Watch now

With LPG-fuelled vessels in service and under construction what can we learn from those that have taken a leap of faith in designing or retrofitting to operate on LPG as marine fuel? With the use of case studies, this webinar will bring together LPG pioneers to reflect on the key questions in their decision-making process and their experiences in designing, building or retrofitting, and in operation.

Join us as we discuss

  • The levels of investment: capex and opex
  • Stakeholder views in designing and building an LPG-fuelled vessel
  • What to consider when retrofitting for LPG
  • Operational feedback on LPG as a fuel
  • Crew experience of LPG fuel handling
  • Playing devil’s advocate: the main concerns in adopting LPG

Why IMO approval is rocket fuel for uptake
of methanol as a marine fuel

Date: Tuesday 9 March - Time: 09:00-09:45 GMT

Watch now

Uptake of methanol as a marine fuel has been boosted following IMO Maritime Safety Committee’s adoption of interim guidelines on the use of methanol as a marine fuel. The guidelines are expected to shorten class approval times and lower newbuilding costs and are driving increasing industry interest in vessel designs and retrofit option for ships powered by methanol.


Join us to discuss

  • IMO Maritime Safety Committee’s decision: a breakthrough for methanol as a marine fuel
  • Progress towards an ISO standard for methanol as a marine fuel in 2021
  • Just how ‘pent up’ is the pent-up demand
  • Increasing marine market access to methanol
  • Transformed economics: comparing methanol-fuelled vessels with LNG-fuelled vessels
  • How methanol could displace heavy fuel oil
  • What is expected for methanol as a marine fuel for short sea operations

Are you ready to adopt ammonia as your
future clean fuel?

Date: Tuesday 9 March - Time: 14:00-14:45 GMT

Watch now

Ammonia is a frontrunner in the race for carbon-free fuels for the maritime industry. Shipping companies are lining up to retrofit vessels to run on ammonia. The world’s first ammonia-fuel ready tanker is under construction in China and a major feasibility study into Singapore’s suitability as a major ammonia bunkering hub for the marine industry is being assessed. In parallel there are significant challenges and unanswered questions. This webinar critically assesses the technical, regulatory, operational and commercial factors that underpin the case for ammonia as a marine fuel.

Join us as we discuss

  • Market and economic considerations in going ‘ammonia ready’
  • The levels of investment: capex and opex
  • The partner selection process for notation and retrofitting
  • What to consider when retrofitting for ammonia

Fuel additives and fuel blending: additives and their role in maintaining fuel stability during storage and reducing CO2 emissions

Date: Wednesday 10 March - Time: 09:00-09:45 GMT

Watch Now

The shipping industry is looking for answers on future fuels. This webinar will assess approaches to additive treatment on existing tonnage and different fuel blending options for very low sulphur fuel oils (VLSFOs), marine gas oil and diesel. It will also - exclusively - present the results of an eight-week study into additives impact on fuel ageing. There will also be consideration of the link between fuel additives, fuel blending and CO2 emission reduction.

Join us as we discuss

  • Improving modern fuel operability (VLSFO, bioblends)
  • EXCLUSIVE: results of an eight-week study into additives impact on fuel ageing
  • Is reducing CO2eq through additive treatment the answer?
