Renewable methanol bunkering and supply for green shipping - experiences from the FASTWATER project

The FASTWATER (FAST Track to Clean and Carbon-Neutral WATERborne
Transport through Gradual Introduction of Methanol Fuel) project aims to start a
fast transitionary path to move waterborne transport away from fossil fuels,
through the use of methanol fuel. The presentation will describe supply and
bunkering of green methanol for smaller vessels, focusing on the demonstrators
converted to methanol-fuelled operation within the project.
