On June 15th the GreenPilot project arranged a seminar in Gothenburg to present how the project has progressed during the past year. Other speakers were also invited to widen the scope of the presentations.

The presentations held during the seminar can be downloaded through the links below or from this section on the site.

The seminar was arranged by SMTF, Scandinaos, SSPA, Swedish Transport Administration, Swedish Maritime Administration and Lighthouse.

f3, Fossil Free Fuels - Johanna Mossberg
The research carried out within f3 includes both syntheses of current research on production and use of renewable transportation fuels, and supplementing system oriented research related to different parts of the entire renewable fuels value chain.

Towards fossilfree transport 2025 in Öckerö Council - Stanley Olsson
The municipality of Öckerö, in the northern part of the archipelago of Gothenburg, consists of ten inhabited islands. Can battery powered vessels help the municipality reach fossil free transports by 2025?

Latest developments in the GreenPilot project and visit on the GreenPilot boat
GreenPilot - Aim and Background – Bengt Ramne
GreenPilot - Engine conversion – Thomas Stenhede
GreenPilot - Adjustments and safety measures – Joakim Bomanson
GreenPilot - Environmental Performance – Patrik Molander

The objective of the GreenPilot project is to demonstrate that introduction of methanol as a fuel for smaller ships can improve competitive power and reduce the environmental impact.

High Efficiency and Clean Methanol Engines - Martin Tunér, MOT2030 Project, University of Lund
MOT-2030 is a research project at Lund University with the aim to explain how methanol and methanol mixtures behave in partially premixed combustion (PPC) engines.

Prospects for future sustainable fuels in shipping - Julia Hansson, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute

MethaShip - Daniel Sahnen

The MethaShip project involves Lloyd’s Register (LR), German shipyard Meyer Werft and German shipbuilder FlensburgerFlensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) will assess the feasibility of building new methanol-powered vessels.

Two designs, one for a cruise ship, and one for a ro-pax ferry will be developed during the three year project.

The FReSMe Project, From residual steel gases to methanol - Magnus Lundqvist
FReSMe project, funded by H2020 EU program, aims to demonstrate the whole process that enables the CO2 captured from the steel industry to produce methanol fuel that will be used as fuel in the ship transportation sector.

The SUMMETH Project – Powering cleaner shipping on coastal and inland waterways - Joanne Ellis, SSPA

The Sustainable Marine Methanol, SUMMETH, intends to investigate methanol combustion concepts and ship fuel systems that will lead to cost effective alternatives for ship operators to reduce their emissions and carbon footprint.
