Classification Society Lloyd’s Register (LR) on Wednesday (8 June) said it has granted  Approval in Principle (AiP) to Daphne Technology (DT) for its methane abatement technology SlipPure™.

The SlipPure™ technology will reduce emissions for LNG-fuelled engines, which can suffer from methane slip, a process that causes unburnt methane to leak, resulting in greenhouse gas emissions and increased ground-level ozone. 

Even though methane slip has been significantly reduced in modern engines, it remains a major risk in operating LNG fuelled vessels.

DT’s development will benefit a variety of LNG carriers and LNG fuelled ships facing an imminent threat once methane is integrated into the GHG regulatory regime.

LR’s awarding of the AiP will enable the technology to proceed to pilot applications, and further development to full commercialisation, reaffirming LR’s commitment to supporting our partners in de-risking their operations whilst addressing some of the maritime industry’s key challenges.

Panos Mitrou, Global Gas Segment Director, Lloyd’s Register, said: “LR is proud to award Approval in Principle to Daphne Technology for their new SlipPure™ technology, a significant milestone in methane abatement technology development. Methane emissions constitute a key risk to the Gas sector and its shipping supply chain. Mitigating this remains essential to climate alignment and longevity of many LNG Carriers and LNG fuelled ships. Retrofits, of this technology in ships, in the future, would allow them to benefit from the full potential of GHG savings of LNG.”

Mario Michan CEO, Daphne Technology, said: “This is an important milestone for Daphne Technology. The Approval in Principle from LR demonstrates that our technology meets International Safety Standards and Regulations, bringing us a step closer to deploying and commercialising our SlipPure™ system. We believe our technology can help address the climate challenge in the maritime and other hard-to-decarbonise industries.”

The AiP was granted on 8 June 2022 in a ceremony at LR’s stand at the Posidonia exhibition in Athens, Greece.

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
