EU legislation

The EU has implemented the updated IMO Annex VI fuel sulphur requirements adopted in 2008 and incorporated into European Community legislation. Furthermore, the EU is developing policies to stimulate the development of alternative energy infrastructure like LNG refuelling points in ports. In addition to the rollout of infrastructure, the EU also focuses on the implementation of common technical specifications for e.g. refuelling points.

Environmental legislation

LNG is a proven technology for complying with the upcoming MARPOL Annex VI regulations. At the moment, LNG is the only available option that is able to meet both the SECA and NECA requirements without the need for using marine gas oil.
