dc.description.abstractThere is currently a great need and interest in alternative fuels for shipping. Methanol is considered to be the most cost-effective alternative fuel for conversion of existing ships in order to reduce harmful emissions. There are now a number of project ongoing for conversion and new building of large vessels for methanol operation. Methanol can be produced from renewable raw materials, and will therefore be an attractive option for operators who want to/can/must prioritize this aspect. This includes for example operators of road ferries, boats for coast guard, pilot boats and boats public transport. The aim for this project was convert a pilot boat to operate on methanol. This will support the development towards reduced greenhouse gas emissions and sustainability. The report is mainly focused on the feasibility study of an identified pilot boat given by the Swedish Maritime Administration (Pilot boat 729). The report shows the methanol engine concepts, arrangement of the equipment, firefighting system and the model of the pilot boat with all the necessary conversion equipment.
