“Shipping has been lagging behind other industries when it comes to emissions. For land based activities, stricter and stricter requirements have been enforced over the past decade or so. The shipping industry, on the other hand, has been omitted from most of these emissions requirements. But this era has now come to an end,” Remi Eriksen said.
“DNV has spent considerable resources on developing concept vessels fuelled by LNG. Not in order to engage in ship design – because we are not. DNV contributes with ideas that collectively will bring the industry forward. We have put our best and most innovative engineers together to develop ideas that can make shipping cleaner, safer and more cost effective.” Mr. Eriksen said. “These ideas have been presented to ship owners, yards, regulators infrastructure owners, oil and gas companies and other stakeholders in the shipping industry in order to stimulate creativity and true progress. The basic ship types sailing the seas today are to a large extent the same as we saw 20 years ago. This industry is about to bring forward new solutions to solve well known problems, – and as a response to new and tougher global regulations.”
