Wärtsilä to support Capital Gas in six-ship decarbonisation programme

Wärtsilä and Capital Gas Ship Management Corp have embarked upon a Fleet Decarbonisation Programme focusing on six 174,000m3 LNG carriers within the Evangelos Marinakis-controlled shipping company.

The project will include a detailed assessment of the ships’ current carbon intensity indicator (CII) ratings and predictions of future CII status in relation to 2030 targets. The analysis will be based on machine-learning algorithms, Wärtsilä said, using data including vessel movements, locations, and technical characteristics.

The algorithms will be powered by Wärtsilä’s CII Insight, a tool that enables owners to assess a ship’s future CII compliance, and to understand the potential impact of different carbon-cutting measures. The programme will consider technical, operational, and commercial factors including drydock planning and the timing of possible modifications and conversions.

Capital Gas managing director, Miltos Zisis, commented: “By engaging with Wärtsilä in this Fleet Decarbonisation Programme, we are looking to continue delivering the highest value to our customers. This includes the efficiency of our fleet and identifying the most relevant solutions for reaching the highest possible environmental standards.”
