Alongside our General Assembly 8, FASTWATER project partners had the chance to visit the test bench of NTUA in Athens and see the Mercury engine converted to methanol up and running. Therewith our 3rd engine conversion to methanol is about to finalise thanks to a great job of our project partners National Technical University of Athens and Heinzmann GmbH & Co. KG. After some additional tests, the engine will be installed into our 3rd demonstrator soon.

In addition, project partners discussed intermediate results and coordinate the next steps of the projects, including:

  • Methatug is progressing and will launch soon
  • Pilot boat is still in its long test trials with very positive experience in day to day operation
  • River cruise ship conversion concept is
  • New papers on next generation of methanol engines are in the works
  • First results of the Life cycle Performance assessment for the demo-cases
  • Starting to plan our final conference

Interested in our upcoming launch events and the final conference? Stay tuned.

After four years of research we are looking forward to sharing our results with you in our FINAL CONFERENCE on May 14th. Join us online and learn more about: - The Methanol retrofitting of our demo-cases - Experiences of day-today operation on Methanol - Next generation of Methanol engines - Methanol supply chain and availability - Our input to rules and regulations - GHG reduction potential of Methanol - Profitability of retrofit-solutions and so much more….
