Capital Gas Ship Management has partnered with Wärtsilä on the development of a new Fleet Decarbonisation Programme, aimed at achieving defined decarbonisation targets through the application of a range of technologies and digital tools.
The agreement, which is a tailored version of Wärtsilä’s Decarbonisation Service initiative, will be applied to a fleet of six 174,000 cbm LNG Carriers within the Capital Gas management portfolio.
“Environmental leadership is a top priority for Capital Gas Ship Management Corporation. By engaging with Wärtsilä in this Fleet Decarbonisation Programme, we are looking to continue delivering the highest value to our customers,” said Miltos Zisis, Managing Director, Capital Gas.
“This includes optimising the efficiency of our fleet, and identifying the most relevant solutions for reaching the highest possible environmental standards.
The programme includes a Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) compliancy analysis of the vessels, predicting the fleet’s status in reference to the 2030 targets. The analysis will be based on machine learning algorithms utilising data on, among other things, vessel movements and locations, and the technical characteristics of each ship.
The most effective means for decarbonising the selected fleet will then be chosen from technologies currently available, taking into consideration technical, operational, and commercial aspects affecting drydock planning and the recommended timing for implementing modifications and conversions.
