Shipping may need to explore concepts such as sector coupling and modular engine rooms if it is to find a route to reach 2050 decarbonisation targets but LNG offers a good starting point, according to Schulte Group corporate director Angus Campbell.

Speaking at the IQPC Global LNG Bunkering Summit in Amsterdam, Campbell said shipping does not always need to “go it alone”.

He floated the idea of sector coupling — where energy consuming sectors share infrastructure costs — as a route to developing an e-hydrogen economy.
