    Abstract

    This report provides a summary of the work carried out in the SUMMETH project. A summary of the following SUMMETH technical reports is included:
    - market study using automatic identification data to identify number of vessels in the north west Europe area with engines in the 250 to 1200 kW hours, and their fuel usage
    - engine technology study including the experimental investigation of several different methanol engine concepts to evaluate performance and emissions for the 250 to 1200 kW engine size range
    - conversion design of the case study road ferry and the associated hazard identification study
    - report on general recommendations for converting selected categories of smaller vessels to methanol operation
    - assessment of environmental, economic, safety, and supply and distribution considerations regarding the use of methanol as a sustainable fuel for smaller vessels.
    Project management and dissemination activities carried out over the project duration are also described.
