Objectives:

  • Install on board an already modified engine (from WP1) using methanol/diesel dual-fuel operation
  • Perform sea-trials with vessel, assessing realistic operation of methanol engine
  • Monitor and document vessel’s performance, with focus on fuel consumption and gas emissions, during operation before and after retrofitting
