Bibby Marine announces the successful completion of MarRI-UK funded "WaveMaster Zero C" study

A consortium led by Bibby Marine has announced that a battery methanol hybrid solution would be the most suitable low to zero emission option for the next generation of Service Operation Vessels, beating three other fuels (hydrogen, ammonia and biodiesel) when assessed against the economic, environmental and technical challenges that result from a transition towards zero carbon shipping. Funded as part of MarRI-UK’s Clean Maritime Funding Call, the outputs of the WaveMaster Zero C study shall hopefully help ship operators as they make the hard choice about what zero-carbon fuels to adopt for their vessels.
