Efficient fuel consumption measurement of alternative marine fuels with AOM’s DOMINO®
More and more shipping companies are now implementing specific projects to drive forward the reduction of emissions in the maritime industry.
The use of alternative fuels plays an important role here, whether as an admixture to fossil fuels or as a pure alternative fuel such as carbon neutral methanol. While shipping companies are starting to convert their fleets to operate on alternative fuels, the corresponding measurement, regulation and control technology must also be able to measure and process these new fuels.
By ordering 8 large ocean-going vessels powered by carbon neutral methanol, the largest container shipping company, A.P. Moller – Maersk, took a big step towards decarbonizing their fleet. The new vessels will be powered by dual-fuel engines from MAN ES that will also be capable of burning bio-methanol as well as e-methanol.
