The venue for the fourth Gas Fuelled Ships Conference will be the world’s largest passenger cruise vessel fuelled by liquefied natural gas (LNG) - the ‘Viking Grace’.

Sailing from Stockholm early on the first day of the conference, 11 September 2013, the Viking Grace will make a round trip via Turku, returning to Stockholm early on 13 September 2013.

The Viking Grace, owned by Viking Line, was designed with the goal of finding the best possible environmental solutions and uses LNG fuel to help decrease its nitrogen exhausts by 85% and its greenhouse gases by 15%. It has a sulphur level of practically zero.

The conference itself will provide an update on the progress and prospects for LNG as a maritime fuel for the future.

The stringent Tier III regulations, which apply to ships within Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECAs), will be coming in to force in 2015. The issue of investment and the costs associated with reducing emissions in the shipping industry will be covered at the event.

A change 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, all of which will also be under discussion at the conference.

In order to reserve your place as a delegate at the event, please visit: www.motorship.com/gfsconference.
