„ I was delighted to take a closer look at the methanol-coNverted pilot boat in person. The GreenPilot project shows that with enough will it is always possible to find an environmental friendly and economically reasonable solution at once. The Port of Hamburg is curiously following the project and its final results after a long-term test in daily action.“
