Lloyd’s List: Containerships should take the lead in using LNG fuel, says Poten & Partners

28 July 2017: “THE 0.5% global sulphur cap is barely three years away, but it has not yet translated into a wave of liquefied natural gas-fuelled ships, and containership operators should take the lead, according to Poten & Partners.”

“The market was still in its “infancy stage”, said Poten analyst Manon Dumontier at the IBC bunkering conference, and “the ball is in the containership owners’ court”.”

“Currently, there are just 112 LNG-fuelled ships, which is around 0.1% of the total world fleet, Poten estimates, with 87 on order, equating to around 2% of the current orderbook as of the second quarter of 2017.”
