Ship owners are facing new fuel technologies in a market which is rapidly developing. To ensure a proper decision-making process, new domain knowledge is required. In addition to technical solutions, fuel logistics and infrastructure have been identified as crucial factors for ship owners to make the transition.
Ports will play an important role in bridging this gap by providing new energy carriers and bunkering infrastructure. With lower energy density of new energy carriers, more frequent bunkering is required. More ports will have to provide bunkering services to meet this demand, requiring additional investments in infrastructure.
Additional regulations and procedures have to be established and implemented throughout the value chain.
