Stena Line is taking the next step in its shift to sustainable fuels by converting some of its ferries to methanol with planned launch in 2025.
“We see methanol as a strong alternative fuel that will help us delivering on our strategy to decarbonise all our operations and contributing to future green corridors where we operate. The positive experience we have from running the Stena Germanica on methanol will be valuable when taking the next stop on this journey”, says Ian Hampton, Stena Line.
The conversions will be carried out by technology group Wärtsilä and will include modifications and installations of a number of modules including fuel supply systems and engine controls. Stena Line will announce the affected vessels and routes at a later stage.
