New GeneRation marinE ENgines and Retrofit solutions to Achieve methane abatement flexibilitY

Project description

More sustainable shipping thanks to updated engines

Liquid natural gas (LNG) has the potential to make shipping more sustainable and also benefit human health. But while current technologies produce lower CO2 with gas, they may still emit methane. The EU-funded GREEN RAY project aims to reduce such "methane slip”by developing new add-on technologies for existing and new engines. New on-engine technologies will be developed both for four-stroke engines like those used in cruise ships and ferries, as well as for two-stroke engines used in tankers and container ships. In addition to on-engine technologies, an aftertreatment technology for methane oxidation is developed in GREEN RAY. The results will be demonstrated onboard two newly built vessels and one retrofitted ship.
