Albion Marine Solutions: LNG Conversions

The International Maritime Organization's (IMO) initial 40% GHG reduction targets by 2030 and decarbonizing shipping entirely by 2050 by achieving net-zero emissions targets necessitate a multi-pronged effort. National and port authorities are also raising their environmental standards; currently, the only available solution to meet the IMO goals is to switch to an alternative fuel, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), which provides an immediate benefit in terms of carbon, Sox, and NOx reductions. It is widely available, inexpensive, and the only alternative fuel with an existing and well-established infrastructure.



LNG conversion is a well-established and viable path toward more sustainable fuels, and it plays an important role not only in reducing ship carbon footprints but also in assisting in the elimination of other pollutants. It also opens up the possibility of adopting future green fuels, such as bioLNG or synthetic methane, without requiring major changes. According to research data on ships and vessels that have already been converted to LNG, the results prove that they have a significant reduction of around 85-90 percent in NOx emissions, 99 percent in Sox, and 20 percent reductions in CO2 emissions and other particulate matters.


Albion Marine Solution can manage all aspects of an LNG conversion project, including feasibility studies, financing solutions, solution proposals, execution planning, and project delivery. Albion Marine Solutions has formed a strategic alliance with SunRui Marine Environment Engineering Co., Ltd, and LGM Engineering, one of the world's largest suppliers of LNG fuel gas supply systems. We provide packages for specific engine types and can provide LNG systems for any marine installation worldwide, regardless of engine brand or type. A conversion project's development phase can last up to a year, with installation work lasting one to two months. Furthermore, Albion Marine Solutions is currently assisting Canadian companies interested in installing LNG packages on tugboats.

MARPOL Annex VI - Fuel Oil Sampling Points

Albion Marine assists operators in arranging for in-use fuel oil sampling points to be installed or designated following section 2 of the Annex to MEPC.1/Circ. 864/Rev.1.


Key amendments in MEPC.324(75) include the following requirements:


• Three types of fuel oil samples now defined in MARPOL – ‘In-use sample,’ ‘Onboard sample’ and ‘MARPOL delivered sample’ – used to check for compliance with sulphur limits

• Ships to have designated sampling points for taking representative samples of fuel oil in use, i.e. ‘In-use samples’ (regs. 14.10 to .13)

• New procedures for in-use and onboard fuel oil sampling (reg. 14.8 and .9)

• Procedures for verification/analysis of in-use samples and onboard samples (Appendix VI, Part 2)

• Amended procedures for verification/analysis of MARPOL delivered samples (Appendix VI, Part 1)




These new requirements for the sampling and verification of the sulfur content of fuel oil, including fuel oil sampling points, enter into force on 1 April 2022. The arrangement shall be described in either a piping diagram or other relevant documents and available for survey. The detailed sampling procedure shall be available onboard.


Early compliance is advised with less than three months until the enforcement date. For more information contact our team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Conversion of harbour tug boat to the electric propulsion power

In terms of exhaust gases and noise pollution, harbors are enacting stringent laws, increasing the demand to opt for cleaner modes of operation. Considering this, Albion has completed an engineering study to convert the harbor tug boat to electric propulsion power. The study provides technical know-how on converting diesel-powered tugs to hybrid or fully electric-powered tugs to major tug boat operators in India. It features an economical and environmentally friendly design.


Converting a tugboat to electric propulsion has numerous advantages. First and foremost, there will be a significant reduction in operational costs. Second, it will require no bunkering charges, and it will reduce engine crew members. Further, maintenance costs will be negligible with the addition of a longer battery life span of up to ten years.
