ABS grants Alfa Laval the marine industry’s first approval in principle (AIP) for firing boilers with methanol
Maritime classification society the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has granted Alfa Laval the first marine approval for operating boilers on methanol. Alfa Laval received an approval in principle (AIP) on 4 November 2021, based on extensive solution testing at the Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre.
Alfa Laval joins over 150 industry leaders in the call for decisive government action to enable full decarbonization of international shipping by 2050
As a signatory of the Call to Action for Shipping Decarbonization, Alfa Laval joins maritime peers in urging world leaders to align shipping with the Paris Agreement’s temperature goal. The document implores governments to facilitate the decarbonization steps already being taken in the private sector, enabling zero-emission shipping to become the default choice by 2030.
Fuelling a new phase in decarbonization
Methanol is the next likely step on the marine industry’s journey to a zero-carbon future. It promises to cut CO2 output by 95%, while also reducing or eliminating other vessel emissions. If produced from renewable green sources, it can bring us to a level of carbon neutrality. However, methanol will demand new technologies and a different way of looking at the energy balance on board. Alfa Laval is at the cutting edge of methanol solutions – and is ready to partner with you in making the transition.
Alfa Laval invests in the development of air lubrication technology for sustainable shipping
Air lubrication for marine vessels is a developing solution that will radically reduce fuel consumption and environmental impact. Having acquired a minority stake in Marine Performance Systems B.V., a Rotterdam-based maritime technology company, Alfa Laval will be instrumental in making this long-sought technology a commercial reality.
Alfa Laval and Wallenius agree on a joint venture to develop modern wind propulsion
With an aim to radically reduce the marine industry’s carbon footprint and overall emissions, Alfa Laval and Wallenius have announced their intent to form a new 50/50joint venture. AlfaWall Oceanbird will focus on the development and realization of technology for fully wind-powered vessel propulsion.
Alfa Laval advances fuel transition with FCM Methanol for four pioneering methanol-fuelled vessels
Alfa Laval is at the forefront of the marine industry's fuel transition with its methanol solutions, knowledge and experience. The pioneering methanol-driven project for a Chinese shipowner involves installation of Alfa Laval's FCM Methanol-the low-flashpoint fuel supply system (LFSS), on board four of its vessels. This project is a landmark achievement not only for Alfa Laval but also for the shipowner, the shipyard and the engine designer.
A carbon-neutral methanol fuel cell system is taking shape at the Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre
An innovative fuel cell system based on high-temperature proton exchange membrane (HTPEM) technology from Blue World Technologies is being constructed for testing at the Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre in Aalborg, Denmark. The test installation, which will use methanol as fuel, will explore the technology’s potential as a source of marine auxiliary power. Funded by Danish EUDP (Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program), the project is a joint effort between fuel cell maker Blue World Technologies, Alfa Laval and vessel owners DFDS, Maersk Drilling and Hafnia.
Alfa Laval and NMRI have succeeded in onboard CO2 capture testing using an exhaust gas cleaning system
As the marine industry strives for a decarbonized future, Alfa Laval and partners are investigating the technologies needed to achieve it. One of the opportunities is carbon capture and storage (CCS), which took a step towards realization in recent testing performed by Alfa Laval and Japan’s National Maritime Research Institute (NMRI).

Alfa Laval to deliver the world’s first methanol-fired steam boiler solutions, enhancing fuel flexibility with methanol
Alfa Laval is taking a pivotal role in driving the marine industry’s transition to carbon-neutral green methanol with its methanol-capable solutions. The company has expanded its portfolio of alternative fuel solutions with the introduction of methanol-fired Aalborg boiler systems that offer exceptional fuel flexibility, accommodating a wide range of fuel types including methanol. This addition marks a significant milestone in the marine industry as it will be the first time a methanol boiler will be installed onboard a ship.
Connected services for marine equipment
Connectivity for your onboard systems creates smart opportunities to lower cost of ownership and secure peace of mind. Remote access means fewer and shorter service visits, but also possibilities for fleet-wide optimization. Discover Alfa Laval’s growing range of digital services and make the connection between data and value.
Alfa Laval introduces the marine industry’s first biofuel-ready separators
Biofuels are a current and accessible fuel option that can help marine customers decarbonize. Yet while biofuels reduce CO2 footprint, they also pose new operational challenges. Alfa Laval is first in the market to address them with biofuel-optimized separators and separator upgrades.
