Description: Future fuels for ships are a reality today. The new order for a »Jones Act« gas-fuelled container vessel has set a new
standard. A new LNG bunkering station will be built in connection with this order, and other ships will also be allowed
access to the LNG. The very low gas price in the US is making it highly attractive to invest in gas-powered ships.
Current gas prices offer savings of almost 50% in fuel costs compared with heavy fuel oil (HFO). A comparison with
marine gas oil (MGO), which is needed when ships operate in emission control areas (ECAs), makes the investment
even better. It is therefore expected that the two container vessels will be operated on gas both inside and outside
ECA zones. Therefore, it makes sense to use gas as the fuel for both operational scenarios.
