The world’s first marine engine to be run using the exceptionally clean fuel of glycerine will be on display at Seawork 2014 together with a seminar session entitled ‘Will my ship/workboat run on this?’ where interested parties can find out more about the fuel’s possibilities for use in the marine sector.

The Cummins marine engine will be on display throughout the exhibition on the Alicat workboat on berth V28, courtesy of Gardline Marine Services, who are partners in the GLEAMS (Glycerine Fuel for Engines and Marine Sustainability) project, and Dalby Offshore, the vessel’s new owners. The Technology Strategy Board funded project is investigating the use of glycerine as a marine fuel to comply with the highest regulations for sulphur and nitrous oxide emissions, as well as slashing carbon emissions and potentially reducing costs.

The seminar, to be held on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 at 2 p.m. at Seawork will explain why glycerine is a proposition for use as a marine fuel and give an update on the testing being done to validate glycerine as an alternative to conventional marine fuels.

Speakers at the event include Dr. Paul Gilbert from the Tyndall Climate Centre who will be talking about the challenges facing the marine industry in terms of international shipping emissions. Also speaking will be Professor Pat Harvey from the University of Greenwich who is a leading authority on the production of glycerine from micro-algae, a significant potential source to meet increasing future demand.

The GLEAMS project has already attracted global interest from vessel operators, engine manufacturers and bunker providers as well as people keen to learn about this sulphur-free alternative fuel.

To find out more about the possibilities for glycerine as a marine fuel visit the Alicat workboat on berth V28 at Seawork and attend the free seminar on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 at 2 p.m.
