The pressure on the maritime industry to decarbonize is intensifying. The right fuel choice will be the most significant factor, and many potential alternative options are emerging. But in the container sector, what are the best options and how can these be implemented practically and economically?

In our updated "Alternative Fuels for Containerships" paper series, DNV examines the different alternative fuel options and provides an overview of the most important technical and commercial considerations for the containership sector.

This third edition builds on the previous edition covering LNG and adds new chapters on methanol and ammonia. It delves into the technical intricacies and implications on CAPEX and OPEX when adopting methanol as an alternative fuel for containerships. Additionally, it provides an overview of important aspects related to ammonia and discusses its potential as an alternative fuel. With these updates, you can gain a more comprehensive understanding of sustainable fuel options for your containerships and their impact on the environment.

Amongst others, the new edition of the paper looks at the following aspects:

  • Technical design considerations for methanol
  • Commercial implications of adopting methanol as an alternative fuel
  • Ammonia's potential as an alternative fuel
  • Availability, infrastructure and ship fuel technology for ammonia
  • Major updates based on the latest IMO GHG strategy decisions at the MEPC 80 meeting
