  • Continuing evolution: The LNG carrier of 2030

    While LNG carriers have a relatively short history, they have been subject to a continuous evolution in their design and operational parameters over the last decade. Many of the design changes reflect the natural maturity of the industry, others have come in response to technical, operational and regulatory changes. So will the LNG ship of 2030 still have the design speed we see today? For an answer, it is necessary to look first at what we can expect from the key areas of the LNG vessel design and operation.

    Today 80 per cent of ammonia produced is used exclusively for the fertiliser industry. However, as pressure is placed on the shipping sector to decarbonise and shift away from reliance on fossil fuels, ammonia is looking like an attractive alternative. If 30 per cent of shipping switched to ammonia as a fuel, then the current production would have to nearly double.

  • Serving as the UAE’s maritime arm

    Despite the natural cyclicality of maritime, the United Arab Emirates continues to maintain its brilliance throughout these ups and downs. In particular, Dubai’s recent ranking as ninth among the world’s top maritime capitals, and first in the Middle East (via Menon Economics and DNV GL) is a strong depiction of the UAE’s sustained success.
