Future fuels survey 2022 - results
At the end of 2022 we asked our four-stroke customers to participate in our short survey about Future fuels in the maritime shipping industry. Out of all replies, we have extracted and summarized the most relevant results and are happy to share them now with you.
When do you expect the following fuels and engine attributes to be relevant in your application?
In the short and mid term, biofuels and methanol are expected to take the lead and be most relevant for four-stroke applications in the upcoming years, in parallel to a continuously relevant share of LNG driven vessels.
Mid to long term, additional fuels, such as NH3 ready or even H2 may gain relevance.
