JIP Make a Difference is identifying, minimising, and if possible eliminating, some of the thresholds in relation to operating a dual fuel vessel (focusing on LNG) and integrating with port.

There are several issues regarding regulations and environmental permits that need to be resolved in the shift from traditionally fuelled engines to LNG. Some of the issues addressed within the project are safety issues regarding LNG bunkering and parallel cargo handling, harmonisation of land-based and sea-based regulations, as well as the permit application process for LNG bunkering and the need for training crew.
