Alternative Energy Sources
Carbon neutrality in shipping can only be achieved by combining energy efficiency interventions with alternative fuels. To support the transition to alternative fuels, we built our expertise on ships powered by Liquified Natural Gas (LNG). LNG is a mid-term solution as it emits 20-30% lower carbon dioxide than traditional fuels. Pronav and all SMCs collaborate with the Schulte Group’s LNG Competence Centre (LCC) to promote new LNG projects and build long-term business relations and partnerships.
Together with our clients, we look for opportunities to pilot cleaner energy solutions on our full-managed vessels. For example, BSM and the Norwegian ammonia specialist Amon Maritime has created a 50/50 joint venture to offer ship management services for the Norwegian market, specialising in ammonia-powered vessels but open to all ships. It is BSM's first step in growing ammonia expertise, and we look forward to increasing our ammonia-fueled fleet soon.
Navigating towards a sustainable future will certainly be challenging, and we are committed to support our clients in this journey.
