DNV to shipowners: Change to LNG now

Shipping companies should pay heed to IMO’s demands and change to LNG as soon as possible, DNV’s Head of Maritime Advisory, Henning Mohn, tells Shippingwatch at the Sea Asia 2013 in Singapore. It is the cheapest solution in the long run, he believes.

SINGAPORE: Shipping companies should face facts and make a decision on how to best meet new requirements from the IMO concerning a reduction of the sulphur content in marine fuel to 0.5 % in 2020. That is the brief message to shipowners from Henning Mohn, who is in charge of the Section for Maritime Advisory, Clean Technology Centre in Det Norske Veritas (DNV).

“They are at a crossroads now, so the time has come to plan and react. Danish shipowners should not wait – they should take action now,” Norway’s Henning Mohn says in an interview with Shippingwatch the day before he is due to give a talk on the subject at Asia’s largest shipping conference, Sea Asia.
