SCHIFFSTECHNIK | SHIP TECHNOLOGY I n the future, we will increase the investment in the two major areas, green and intelligent technology. CCS will continue advancing the technical research of new energy such as methanol/ethanol, hydrogen fuel and ammonia fuel, as well as the development and pilot application of relevant rules and regulations. Moreover, we will strengthen the research on the application of new energy and energy-efficiency technologies for vessels, and study the impact of the IMO energy-efficiency measures on existing ships. In terms of intelligent technology, we will further research the intelligent survey and testing technologies and speed up the construction of »digital CCS«. Meanwhile, we will promote the construction of digital ecosystem and digitization-related work according to the plan, build a digital service platform, strengthen the application of blockchain-based ship data service chain, and establish a shared working alliance. © CCS Jianui Mo – Vide President – China Classification Society From project conception to decommissioning, bridge the gap with RINA. Make it sure, make it simple. We believe we should pay attention to the potential of Bio- LNG and synthetic LNG for rapid growth in the global supply and consumption. At the same time, we should not ignore the risks and challenges in applying zero-carbon fuels such as hydrogen and ammonia on ships. The low-carbon transformation of ship energy is a system engineering that needs strong support from the entire energy industry chain, from wellhead to fuel tank and to propeller. As we know, through 20 years of development, LNG, as a marine fuel, there has been a relatively complete and mature industrial chain built, which is difficult for other low-carbon or zerocarbon fuels to surpass and replace in a short time. We believes that LNG fuel has significant advantages in terms of sustainability, contribution to emission reduction, availability, economy, technological maturity, completeness of relevant regulations, etc.. We will continue taking it as a feasible direction for further research and development. For the future-oriented zero-carbon emission solutions, CCS regards hydrogen and ammonia fuels as the key development directions. We believes that the clean energy with good prospect of development and application in the future mainly includes LNG, methanol, hydrogen, ammonia and nuclear energy. CCS believes it is necessary to enhance the regulation of shipping industry in the following areas: • Prevention and control of Covid-19. In the context of normalization of pandemic prevention and control, it is important to issue or update the pandemic prevention and control guidelines for ships and crews, and provide guidance for the global shipping community to strengthen the pandemic prevention and control, so as to ensure the safety, health and employment of the crews. It is expected to bring forth a new branch of ship health under international maritime regulations frame in the future, which requires classification to carry out research in advance.There is no detailed supervision framework for remote survey and the application and execution are not explicit so far. It is necessary to draft the uniform requirements on remote survey and develop the remote survey under the common standards of Flag State and RO. • GHG emissions reduction. So far, in the initial IMO strategy on reduction of GHG emissions from ships, there has been only target set for the overall carbon emission intensity and the total GHG emissions of the fleet. However, the emission reduction potential of new ships varies from the existing ones, and the emission reduction capacities of different types of vessels are also different; so, it is necessary to study how to break down the overall target to different types of vessels and enact specific policies and regulations. • Safe application of alternative fuels. Due to the significant differences of physicochemical properties between the low-carbon/zero-carbon alternative fuels and fossil fuels, there will be different safety risks in the storage, supply and utilization of such alternative energy on the ships. Therefore, it is necessary to study and formulate the technical standards as soon as possible. 50 HANSA – International Maritime Journal 08 | 2021

SCHIFFSTECHNIK | SHIP TECHNOLOGY I n 2022 we will continue to help our stake- holders reduce risk while improving perform- ance. Performance is sustainability focused and about reducing GHG emissions. R&D and rules for new fuels are vital. But the future will be about more than fuels and GHG emissions. We are in a transition and all fuels are transition fuels. No-one can predict what will happen: we need to be ready for a fast changing world. We have the expertise to support new hydrogen based fuels. LNG is the best fuel available at any scale for owners who need to make decisions now. Bio-methane, as an immediate drop in route to further reducing GHG emissions, is available. The number of LNG fueled ships in operation, so far, © BV Matthieu de Tugny President, Marine & Offshore Bureau Veritas is very small (less than % of the world fleet). The sooner the right incentives and regulation are put in place, the sooner e-fuels can become competitive. We must address carbon pricing and well-towake impacts as the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is now doing: we will soon see if shipping can retain control of the process as we seek the right mix of incentives and regulations to reduce GHG emissions in line with the Paris ambitions. BV’s work, and our rules, are directly connected with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as we help shape a world of trust – and it is good to see more people talking about trust. For us it is key – as a global testing, inspection and certification (TIC) company. And with more ships in class than any other classification society, we are trusted to safeguard the lives of so many thousands of seafarers, offshore workers and passengers. We work to retain that trust every single day. Our containership rules, revised in 2020 and further updated in January, are constantly updated and have been developed based on deep understanding. We continue to invest in R&D to keep our rules up to the demanding environment and operational needs of modern shipping. HANSA – International Maritime Journal 08 | 2021 51
