To give an overview about the current developments in the field of LNG as ship fuel.
Basic maritime knowledge

Duration: 1 day
The introduction of stricter local, national and international environmental legislation demands new solutions for fuels within the maritime industry. One possible approach to meet the emission requirements is to use natural gas as fuel for propulsion and electric power generation on board.
Until recently, there was a lack of international safety requirements for gas as fuel for non-LNG tankers. However, on 1 January 2017 the IGF-Code (International Code of Safety for Ships using Gases or other Low-Flashpoint Fuels) entered into force. This code provides mandatory provisions for the arrangement and installation of low- flashpoint fuelled machinery.
DNV updated its Rules to include all statutory requirements (except risk assessment, operational requirements and training). DNV Rules provide clear and prescriptive criteria together with function-based requirements enabling more innovative solutions.
While exploring the details of typical LNG fuel systems, this course will show how safety challenges and associated risks are mitigated and minimised through applicable rules and regulations. The course aims to engage technical personnel through discussions and challenging cases giving them a better understanding of LNG as ship fuel.
The course focuses on:
- Applicable rules and regulations
- Safety challenges and associated risks
- Principles and components of typical LNG fuel systems
- Ship type considerations
