EU Projects

Identifying, minimising and eliminating thresholds

The aim of the Make a Difference (MaD) EU project is to identify, minimise, and if possible eliminate, some of the thresholds that apply in relation to building and operating a dual fuel vessel.

There are several issues regarding regulations and environmental permits that need to be resolved in the shift from traditionally fuelled engines to LNG. Some of the issues addressed within the project are safety issues regarding LNG bunkering and parallel cargo handling, harmonisation of land-based and sea-based regulations, as well as the permit application process for LNG bunkering and the need for training crew.

The project has received financial support from the European Union via the TEN-T programme.
