ISO to develop standard for methanol as marine fuel

497 methanol

 

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has invited the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to develop a standard for methyl/ethyl alcohol as a marine fuel and a standard for methyl/ethyl alcohol couplings.  There are currently 8 vessels that operate on Methanol as fuel, the ropax Stena Germanica and seven tankers operated by Waterfornt Shipping, with an additional four ships to enter into service in 2019.  This is the first time ISO has considered these fuel types.
