FAST Track to Clean and Carbon-Neutral WATERborne Transport through Gradual Introduction of Methanol Fuel: Developing and Demonstrating an Evolutionary Pathway for Methanol Technology and Take-up

Project description

The green revolution of waterborne transport

Waterborne transport must become sustainable. The EU-funded FASTWATER project aims to reduce its greenhouse and pollutant emissions by using methanol fuel. Methanol is a clean fuel, available in large quantities in most ports, and can easily be stored on board. FASTWATER elaborates an evolutionary pathway for methanol, including retrofit solutions. The project will develop retrofit kits and methanol engines and demonstrate these in a harbour tugboat, a pilot boat and a coast guard vessel. A methanol powered river cruise vessel design is also included, as well as logistics and bunkering, revision of rules and regulations, and crew training. Eventually, FASTWATER will implement business plans including the life cycle performance analysis of costs, CO2 and pollutant reductions, to commercialise the developed solutions.
