Liquefied natural gas
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is booming in maritime transport. LNG vessels now account for 30% of orders, and container ships are no exception. For example, CMA CGM, a world leader in maritime transport and logistics, will be commissioning six new LNG-powered container ships by end-2022.
These will emit up to 20% less CO2 than a ship fitted with a fuel engine. Emissions of sulphur oxide and fine particles are also reduced by 99% and 92%, respectively, compared to a fuel engine.
The new container ships will enable customers to reduce their environmental footprint. Shipowners, likewise, will be taking a step towards their self-imposed target of carbon neutrality by 2050.
