The technology group Wärtsilä and Capital Gas Ship Management have agreed to partner in the development of a new Fleet Decarbonisation Programme aimed at achieving defined decarbonisation targets. Under the programme, Wärtsilä will assist Capital Gas with advanced planning, and with support in assessing and assuring the performance of investments designed to meet the company’s greenhouse gas reduction ambitions. The agreement will be applied to a fleet of six 174’000 cbm LNG Carriers within the Capital Gas management portfolio. The Fleet Decarbonisation Programme includes a detailed Carbon Intensity Indicator compliancy analysis of the vessels, predicting the fleet’s status in reference to the 2030 targets. The analysis will be based on advanced Machine Learning algorithms utilising extensive data on, among other things, vessel movements and locations, and the technical characteristics of each ship. The algorithms are powered by Wärtsilä’s CII Insight – a new set of capabilities that enable owners to forecast a vessel’s compliance with CII, and to understand the impact of alternative solutions. Furthermore, the programme will support the selection of the most effective means for decarbonising the selected fleet from the vast array of solutions and technologies currently available. It will also take into consideration technical, operational, and commercial aspects affecting drydock planning and the recommended timing for implementing modifications and conversions.
