DNV and AL Group work on CCS project

Classification society DNV has agreed a joint development project with AL Group and its Singapore-based company Asiatic Lloyd Maritime to investigate the feasibility of carbon capture and storage (CCS) on board AL newbuildings.

As part of a Joint Development Project (JDP), DNV will collaborate with AL on a techno-economic study of CCS on board a 7,100 TEU container ship and a Kamsarmax bulk carrier.[ds_preview] The “Fuel Path” calculation model will be used to assess the economic potential of the various fuel and technology strategies. It will map a range of fuel andCO2 price scenarios as well as future decarbonization requirements aligned with AL’s own net-zero ambitions.

“This joint development project with DNV allows us to actively explore the adoption ofcarbon capture technologies for our future fleet while reinforcing our commitment to environmental protection, emissions reduction and innovation,” said Tonci Zdunic, Group Fleet Director of AL Group.

DNV publishes OCCS guideline

“It is becoming increasingly important for ship owners to be proactive and adopt a decarbonization strategy that enables regulatory compliance and optimized operations,” added Cristina Saenz de Santa Maria, Regional Manager South East Asia, Pacific & India, Maritime at DNV. “With this in mind, we are delighted to be working with AL Group to explore cost-effective fuel strategies that will help them move forward with their net-zero ambitions.”

Recently, in light of growing pressure on the shipping industry to develop effective technologies to reduce emissions by 2030, DNV published new guidelines for the safe installation of onboard carbon capture and storage systems (OCCS) on board ships.
