Abstract

In this research paper we aim to establish a system approach framework to contribute to a better holistic comprehending about utilisation of LNG as a marine fuel source for deep sea container ships operating on the main liner shipping routes. We briefly touch on outlines of price and emission opportunities, as well as operational and safety challenges, and system adaptation stages of LNG bunkering for container ships. We demonstrate an LNG fuelled global marine container transport network model in order to meet requirements of bunkering operations, fleet utilisation and marine container transportation demand. Outcomes of this research will assist further developments of LNG bunkering based liner service operational strategies of deep sea container liner ship operators.
