Pillar: Ships

Crew safety is a key theme when considering transitioning to vessels fueled by alternative fuels. The project seeks to contribute to knowledge exchange on existing and planned procedures for ensuring crew safety and facilitating crew training on vessels using alternative fuels, with the aim to support first-movers by highlighting the early industry experiences and insights on how to ensure the safety of the seafarers and thus increase confidence in the use of alternative fuels.

Project Objective:

The objective of the project is to showcase existing and planned procedures for crew training and safety for seafarers using ammonia, methanol and hydrogen as fuel, and contribute to knowledge sharing among industry stakeholders. The procedures could cover crew training, general operation and bunkering. The project findings could also potentially provide input to relevant maritime educational institutions and regulators.

Project Milestones:

  • Project launch in October 2023
  • Analysis from January to March 2024
  • SCILZS Report is expected in April 2024
  • Discussion workshops/knowledge sharing with relevant stakeholders such as industry, maritime educational institutions and regulators etc.
