SEALNG Bolsters Coalition with New Member
The multi-sector industry coalition SEALNG has further strengthened its membership with the addition of Japan-based Marubeni.
With the new member, the SEALNG coalition bolsters its efforts to drive forward the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, and to progress its vital role as a viable solution in the energy transition within shipping.
Since its launch in July 2016, SEALNG’s membership has grown from 13 to 25 members, indicating the industry’s attention to LNG as a cost effective, safe, and more environmentally friendly long-term fuelling solution.
The coalition continues to voice its views on the need to work collaboratively with key players across the entire LNG value chain to break down the barriers to LNG uptake ahead of the global sulphur cap from 2020.
“Marubeni has a great wealth and breadth of expertise in relation to LNG and we welcome their knowledge as we continue to support the energy transition in shipping,” Peter Keller, SEALNG chairman and executive vice president of TOTE Inc., said.
“SEALNG will continue to unite organisations that work together to address market barriers to LNG uptake, and to help transform the use of LNG as a marine fuel into a global reality,” Keller added.
