Thanks to all Attendees, Speakers, Sponsors & Partners of the CWC LNG Fuels Summit 2017!


The 3rd CWC LNG Fuels Summit in Amsterdam on the 13-15 June 2017 was a huge success and welcomed the movers and shakers of the LNG Fuels industry to network and discuss the most pressing matters in the LNG fuels sector. 

Not only did the most important industry players attend, but the event also featured exclusive site visits to Shell’s Waddinxveen LNG station & Gate terminal B.V. 

Join us next year for the 4th edition, 22- 24 May 2018.

The event is really great, giving the attendees the chance to gather with the worldwide small scale LNG value-chain and gain updates of the market situation and its difficulties.”

Recap - The Key Takeaways of the 2017 Event:


Day 1

  • Environmental, and thus regulatory factors continue to be the biggest drivers for the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel 
  • 2020-2030 will be a key period for the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel. We will be seeing the direct effect of the IMO’s 0.5% sulpher cap regulation (which has already resulted in an influx of new LNG vessels on order) coupled with a huge amount of LNG being put into the market, these two factors will have a massive push in driving the industry forward
  • It is also becoming clear that LNG is not the only solution as we move into a marine world of no Heavy Fuel Oil. We are going to see a mix of alternative fuels coming on stream, but there was a general acceptance that LNG would make up a large portion of the alternative fuels in use and is the best of the bunch and will make up the lion share of alternative fuels percentage
  • Technology will continue to play a huge role in the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel, in a ‘lower for longer’ energy price world, innovation and efficiency is growing in importance and we’re seeing a lot of new technologies which are making LNG adoption much more viable as a solution

 


Day 2

  • The theme of the day was “mind-set change”, particularly from the top of the larger companies, and the continued need for genuine collaboration across the value chain

  • The theme of the day was “mind-set change”, particularly from the top of the larger companies, and the continued need for genuine collaboration across the value chain

  • This was tackled in the Connect2LNG Panel Discussion which featured speakers from Unilever, Vos Logistics, Chep, Engie and Iveco. Clear feeling that ‘buy in’ at the board level is highly important when dealing with the direction companies will go in terms of environmental footprint
  • A feeling that it was easier for larger companies to convert, and more needs to be done to incentivise (and create a good price point) for the smaller players to do the same

  • Adoption for LNG in heavy duty vehicles is not developing as quickly as we would like, but the value chain are working together and know what is needed to make it happen. Scaling up quicker would have a huge impact on the economics

 

 


This is What the Attendees Thought:

Well organised. Good location. Nice to have a diverse group of participants throughout the chain. Good to have practical examples and good moderators. 

Francisca Snel, Gate terminal

Great organization. Good first hand info on ssLNG ‘end users’ (ships, truck) to understand the demand.
