The Clean Marine Fuel Institute (Clean MFI) is an independent not for profit organisation established to enable LNG, the cleanest alternative available today, to be a primary fuel for marine transportation. Clean MFI’s position is that the marine industry can only meet and exceed the IMO GHG emission targets through early adoption of alternative marine fuels as we work towards zero-emission fuels.
This is a project selected by the European Commission to promote clean power for transport.The project is developing a safe and efficient, integrated logistics and supply chain for LNG in the transport industry (small scale and bunkering), particularly for maritime transport of the Iberian Peninsula.
SEA-LNG associate member KOLBIA was formed in 2016. Its key projects are focused on Korea seeking to: create a market framework in Korea, implementing demonstration projects, international cooperation and promoting the need for vessels fuelled by LNG.
The MARITIME LNG PLATTFORM e.V., the German national LNG initiative, is an interest coalition of more than 80 national and international industrial and shipping companies, port authorities and initiatives aimed at creating a cleaner and more sustainable shipping sector through the use of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) and the significant reduction of emissions, such as SOx, NOx, CO2 and particulate matter (PM). The MARITIME LNG PLATTFORM e. V is focused on providing information and research and is committed to the establishment of framework conditions that enable a timely introduction of LNG to the market.
Since 2013, this Dutch national LNG Platform has been connecting companies and governments with one clear goal: to introduce LNG (liquid gas) as a new, cleaner and quieter fuel for road transport and shipping. Almost 30 members work together with the government to set up the current Dutch LNG market and infrastructure: the Platform offers a place to exchange knowledge and find solutions to common problems.
Created in May 2017, the LNG platform brings together many shipowners, ports, LNG suppliers, class companies, engineering and equipment manufacturers and associations around a shared objective of starting the use of LNG as a replacement for traditional fuels in maritime and river transport in France.
Polish LNG Platform was established to promote LNG as a new, cleaner and quieter fuel for road transport and shipping. Polish LNG Platform is intensifying efforts to develop and support the LNG market in Poland, with particular emphasis on the potential of LNG, concentrating resources on the most promising directions of development of LNG, referrals lobbying for the national authorities and the EU and strengthen cooperation between the economy, science and administration as well as international cooperation.
Poseidon Med II is the continuation of Poseidon Med (COSTA II East) & “Archipelago-LNG” As a whole, the Global Project aims to take all steps towards the adoption of LNG as marine fuel in the Eastern Mediterranean, while making Greece an international marine bunkering and distribution hub for LNG in South Eastern Europe. The project’s commencement in the year 2014 was based on the results of COSTA I project, which prepared an LNG Masterplan for short sea shipping between the Mediterranean Sea and North Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Deep Sea cruising in the North Atlantic Ocean towards the peripheral and ultra-peripheral zones of Azores and the Madeira Island.
ship.energy is a free-to-access platform tracking shipping’s journey towards zero emissions. It gives shipping industry stakeholders the opportunity to learn more about the latest developments in cleaner marine fuels and propulsion technologies, and to take part in the growing debate over how shipping and the bunker sector can actively and fully participate in the marine energy transition to zero emissions. As the go-to information hub for news, longer reads, interviews, and expert comment on new fuels, technologies and vessel efficiency, ship.energy encourages and facilitates the dynamic exchange of information exchange across the many facets of the shipping industry.
The Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF) is a NGO established to promote safety and industry best practice in the use of gas as a marine fuel. It has Consultative Status with the International Maritime Organisation. The Society is governed by a representative Board, and driven by two principal Committees; Technical and Environmental.
SEA-LNG has a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SGMF. SGMF was a 25% partner with SEA-LNG in commissioning the thinkstep (now Sphera) study into the Lifecycle Analysis (LCA) of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission for LNG as a marine fuel. While SEA-LNG’s prime focus is to act as an advocate for LNG as a marine fuel, focused on the commercial and promotional aspects, SGMF’s focus is on the technical and operational of LNG and other gaseous marine fuels.
