Green Pilot

GreenPilot Final Seminar to be held 3rd May 2018 in Göteborg

The GreenPilot Project final seminar, “Guiding the Way to Sustainable Shipping”, will be held 3rd May 2018 in Gothenburg, Sweden and all are welcome to attend. The seminar will include presentations of results from the project to convert a pilot boat to methanol operation, as well as presentations covering sustainable methanol production, safety and performance of methanol, and perspectives from ship operators regarding methanol operation.

By converting pilot boat 729 to methanol operation, the GreenPilot project has successfully demonstrated bio-methanol as a fuel for the smaller vessel segment. By paving the way both technically and from a regulatory perspective GreenPilot has opened up new opportunities in clean coastal shipping and further profiled Sweden as a cutting edge player in green propulsion.

SSPA is a partner in the GreenPilot project along with project owner SMTF, ScandiNAOS, the Swedish Transport Administration, the Swedish Maritime Administration, and the Methanol Institute.
