Guiding the way to sustainable shipping

The GreenPilot project partners and Lighthouse would like to thank all the presenters and participants at GreenPilot's end of project seminar for a fantastic day!


The GreenPilot Project has converted pilot boat 729 to methanol operation and successfully demonstrated biomethanol as a fuel for the smaller vessel segment. By paving the way both technically and from a regulatory perspective GreenPilot has opened up new opportunities in clean coastal shipping and further profiled Sweden as a cutting edge player in green propulsion.


On the 3rd of May when we held a seminar summarizing the outcome of GreenPilot and showcasing methanol in a wider perspective as a marine fuel. The day shared insights from the angles of production, safety and performance, market and long term prospects as well as the ship owner perspective.
