Call for papers released

The Motorship Propulsion & Future Fuels Conference will take place over two days and will consist of joint sessions and two separate streams which will maximise the topics and focus on the specifics of either propulsion technology or low flashpoint / alternative fuels.

The Conference will continue to address solutions for efficient and clean propulsion technology, and will look ahead to ways of decarbonising the maritime shipping sector.

The Motorship Propulsion & Future Fuels Conference welcomes submissions in the fields listed below. Abstracts can detail R&D projects, case studies, trial results, descriptions of technological challenges and solutions, or operational feedback on new technologies.

Propulsion stream

  • Two-stroke developments
  • Four-stroke developments
  • Turbochargers
  • NOx abatement technologies
  • Exhaust gas cleaning systems
  • Cylinder condition
  • Energy saving devices
  • Stern tubes and bearings
  • GHG reduction strategies

Fuels Stream

  • LNG engine technology
  • Fuel gas supply systems and storage
  • LNG infrastructure, pricing & availability
  • LNG bunkering safety
  • Alternative fuels – Methanol, VOCs, LPG, Hydrogen/ammonia, wind & solar power, fuel cells, Batteries/energy storage
  • Shore power

Plenary sessions

  • Emissions regulatory outlook
  • Hybrid propulsion
  • Ultra-Low Sulphur Fuel Oils: availability and pricing post 2020
  • ULSFO technical challenges
  • Landmark vessel projects, all fuels
  • Efficient ship design
