This will be the 5th Gas Fuelled Ships Conference, held in association with The Motorship, for architects, shipyards, designers, shipowners, ship managers, agents, classification societies and manufacturers coming together to discuss and exchange ideas on the use of LNG as a fuel for ships. Increasingly tough environmental regulations mean that further investment to reduce emissions is needed now. However, green issues and environmental legislation potentially increase costs; switching to cleaner fuels could be the solution and, with an abundant supply of natural gas, LNG is becoming the most promising maritime fuel. LNG is price-competitive with fuel oils but investment in the gas supply chain is needed to encourage wider use by shipping. Changing to alternative fuels also brings about other areas for development such as ship architecture and the safety aspects for storage and handling of gas on board ships. http://www.motorship.com/gfsconference
