Fuel Strategy Advisor for MGX-24 Class Ships

“I think in the long run shipping and aircraft are the only things that need large quantities
of energy-dense liquid fuels,...”

Decarbonization and meeting the global warming target of 1.5 °C pose challenges to shipping that the industry has never seen before. Not only the stricter IMO and EU regulations, but also the customers of container ships are forcing the industry to make a significant change in strategy to meet the upcoming requirements.

Building on many years of experience, GMW Consultancy has been intensively evaluated the practical issues of international efforts to decarbonize shipping.

This and the experience from continious projects related to the decarbonization of shipping feeds into the “Fuel Strategy Advisor for MGX-24 Class Ships” Study from OCEANS ONE Management Consultants and GMW-Connsultancy.

This study provides a realistic, comparative insight into the cost structure and savings potential for operating a Megamax-24 class (MGX-24) containership with different fuel alternatives of the future.  The technical and commercial comparison provides a clear insight into the impact of different fuel options on CAPEX, OPEX, slot costs and total costs of ownership for operating a MGX-24 containership. The outcome of the study is expected to enable ship owners to gain a deep understanding of the different fuel alternatives and to provide reliable criteria for management decisions regarding the fuel strategy for their future-proof newbuilding projects.

The study can be purchased on the OCEANS ONE Website.
