As shipowners start to grapple with CO2 emission targets for 2030, and then 2050, the role of LNG as a fuel marine very much comes into question.

An ABS sponsored ceremony for Norwegian shipping companies committed to the Amver Awards was held at the US Ambassador’s Residence in Oslo this week.

As shipping seeks a low or zero emission future it will be looking at a multi-fuel future rather than the one size fits model of the past with heavy fuel oil.

Lord Mountevans, Chairman, Maritime London & President, Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers was announced as the recipient of the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at tonight’s presentation ceremony for the 31st Seatrade Awards, which took place at London’s magnificent Guildhall.

As shipping searches for future fuels to meet a low or zero carbon future a report commissioned by the Environmental Defense Fund Europe has identified ammonia as possible substitute for fossil fuel.

The decarbonisation of shipping and the IMO targets for CO2 reductions by 2030 and 2050 have thrown open the question as to what will be the future fuel, or fuels, of the industry. It is a complex question with no single silver bullet, and one which classification society American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) is involved with on a global basis in trying to find a solution to.

As decarbonising shipping becomes mission critical for the industry classification society the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has launched a Global Sustainability Center in Singapore.

Classification society ABS has formally opened its new global headquarters in Houston, Texas.

American classification society ABS has issued guidance notes on the implementation of smart technology for owners, operators and equipment manufacturers in the marine and offshore industries.

Much is talked about digitalisation and how shipping can benefit but what is happening in practice to transform the way in which the shipping and maritime industries operate.
