ABS Guide for Methanol and Ethanol Fueled Vessels PDF

Methanol is considered one of the leading renewable fuel options that can provide a carbon-neutral fuel supply and support decarbonization within the maritime industry. Industry leaders like Maersk are already ordering Methanol-fueled vessels as part of their decarbonization strategy and securing the supply of carbon-neutral e-methanol.

Recognizing the need for further guidance in this area, ABS recently released the Guide for Methanol and Ethanol Fueled Vessels, which details design criteria for the arrangements, construction, installation, and survey of machinery, equipment, and systems for vessels operating with methanol as a marine fuel to minimize risks to the vessel, crew and the environment.

Vessels are also eligible to receive the LFFS (DFD-Methanol) notation when arranged to burn methanol for propulsion or auxiliary purposes in accordance with the requirements of the Guide.
