Methanol : Marine Fuel of the Future
Lead Partner: Stena Aktiebolag, Sweden
This pilot action will test the performance of methanol on the existing passenger ferry Stena Germanica operating between the ports of Gothenburg and Kiel. The Stena Germanica is the world’s second largest RoPax ferry.
The running of the Stena Germanica on methanol will allow the vessel to comply with the new Sulphur Emission Control Area rules ahead of the 2015 deadline.
