Methanol as an alternative fuel for smaller marine vessels

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference AbstractProfessional


SUMMETH project investigated the potential for the existing marine market to adapt to methanol, test and evaluate different methanol combustion concepts, and provide recommendations for on-board systems and adaptations required for these concepts. The distribution and availability of renewable methanol for marine transport was also evaluated. This presentation focuses on the results of the experimental work on the methanol combustion concept for the smaller vessels (engine segment from about 250 kW to 1200 kW).
