Scrubbers to lose ground in five-six years - Sergey Frank
Scrubbers will lose ground in five-six years when measures against GHG emissions are introduced, IAA PortNews correspondent cites Sergey Frank, President & CEO of PAO Sovcomflot, as saying at the industry focused conference “Maritime and River Transport as a System Element of the Backbone Infrastructure” held as part of the Transport Week in Moscow. “Introduction of gas (as a marine fuel – Ed.) is good because in five-six years we will face restrictions on GHG emissions (CO2) that will overthrow substandard solutions like scrubbers”, said Sergey Frank.
In this context, Sovcomflot CEO called on active development of “green financing” at the national level.
In the opinion of Sergey Frank, the most advantageous locations for creation of LNG bunkering infrastructure are the ports of the Baltic Sea, Sakhalin and Sabetta.
