Natural gas for inland shipping workshop in Strasbourg

On 21.06.17, MARIKO GmbH and its French project partner VNF invited the participants to a workshop in Strasbourg on challenges and options for the use of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Compressed Natural GAS (CNG) and their possible applications in inland navigation.

German experts, Gerhard Untiedt (Meyer Werft) and Claus Hirsch (AG EMS) reported on their experiences with the use of LNG in passenger shipping. Erik Buthker (Pitpoint) and Christian Schnaider (LIQUIND) gave on the other hand an assessment of the further establishment and bunker possibilities of Natural Gas.
