Fuel supply systems provider Auramarine has signed a cooperation agreement with Yiu Lian Dockyards (Shekou) Co., Ltd. and Guangzhou Jihai Shipping Material Co. Ltd. in order to drive the implementation and uptake of methanol dual fuel systems as a viable and available new fuel to support the shipping industry in improving its sustainability and meeting decarbonisation targets.

Following the growth and opportunity of methanol as a future fuel, Auramarine will collaborate with Guangzhou Jihai to deliver an efficient, one-stop service to Yiu Lian Shipyard. This will include the integration of methanol supply units, bunker stations, deep well pumps, fuel tank instruments, PV valves, gas detection and leak detection, instrument air control systems, SS Links ESD systems, water glycol heat exchange, MFSS system debugging and training.

Guangzhou Jihai will carefully select the most reliable and cost-effective brands across various sectors for integration. And it will also leverage its geographical advantages to deliver efficiency improvements and cost reduction, acting as an important intermediary, providing process co-ordination, logistical support and capital guarantee to ensure smooth cooperation between the three parties. As Yiu Lian Shipyard’s prioritized provider of methanol fuel supply systems and related infrastructure, Auramarine will also provide technical support and collaboration.

Commenting on the development, John Bergman, CEO, Auramarine, said: “We are excited to embark on this tripartite cooperation with Yiu Lian Dockyards and Guangzhou Jihai to promote the development and adoption of methanol as a viable new fuel to comply with environmental regulations, reduce carbon emissions and meet industry decarbonisation targets.

Together, we aim to set new standards for green shipping, making a positive impact on the environment and the industry as a whole.”
