As a signatory to the “Getting to Zero” coalition’s “Call to Action for Shipping Industry Decarbonisation”, ICE is one of 200 industry leaders and organisations committed to reducing the industry’s future dependence on fossil fuel. As such, ICE has developed designs for all-electric ferries and wind-propelled and solar-powered vessels and has developed designs for vessels to install offshore wind turbines (WTIVs) and a zero-emission Service Offshore Vessel (SOV) to assist in offshore wind farm maintenance.
ICE is also investigating the feasibility of alternative fuels to reduce or eliminate carbon emission. At the recent ANCONAV meeting, Sorin Brazdis, Managing Director of ICEPRONAV Engineering SRL (pictured here) briefed the participants on ICE’s recent analysis of ways to help meet the IMO’s target of carbon neutral operations by 2050 by switching to “clean fuels”. As an independent ship designer, ICE can assess the impact of each fuel option and guide its clients in selecting the most suitable fuel taking into consideration energy efficiency, energy density, storage requirements, technical risks, likely availability, likely cost and other relevant factors.
