The Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) has taken up a pilot project to demonstrate the use of methanol as a marine fuel, reports the Press Trust of India.
“We are placing order for three work boats to retrofit engines and six low draft cargo vessels of 1,000-2,000 tonnes capacity to Cochin Shipyard that will use methanol as fuel with technology from Sweden after a go-ahead from NITI Aayog,” IWAI vice-chairman Pravir Pandey told the news agency.
IWAI is working on placing bunkering facilities capable of offering methanol as a bunker fuel at 500 km intervals along the whole 1,600 km Haldia-Varanasi river, he states.
Pandey made the comments on the sidelines of a shipping event organised by the Bengal Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
