ClassNK released its second version of the Guidelines for Gas Fuelled Ships, a version that reflects the requirements for the design of natural gas fuelled ships based on the outcome of discussions held at IMO regarding the International Code of Safety for ships using gases or other low flash-point fuels (IGF Code). With regulations curbing atmospheric pollution and greenhouse gas emissions growing stricter amid stronger calls for a greener shipping industry, the industry is turning toward the use of natural gas as a potential cleaner alternative to liquid fuel oil. Expected reductions in gas prices due to the recent development of non-conventional energy resources such as shale gas has also led to an increase in gas fuelled ship newbuildings and projects.
ClassNK published the Guidelines for Gas Fuelled Ships to provide comprehensive information on key design features including bunkering, hull structure, fire safety and explosion prevention measures in line with the results of IMO discussions on the IGF Code.
