As of 1 January 2020, shipowners and lessors may apply an exceptional tax depreciation when acquiring equipment using decarbonised energy for the main or auxiliary propulsion of a vessel.
In recent years, various factors – whether political, commercial or technical – have combined to accentuate the advantages of LNG to Power projects.

While some of these alternative fuels may eventually prove to be intermediate solutions, they remain an essential part of the industry’s journey to its carbon neutral future.
