Greek LNG shipowner Maran Gas Maritime is to trial Swiss-based Daphne Technology’s methane abatement system on one of its LNG carriers.

The 173,548-cbm Maran Gas Chios (built 2019), which is on charter to energy major Shell, will be fitted with Daphne’s SlipPure system.

This is an after-treatment designed to reduce methane emissions — also referred to as methane slip — from LNG-fuelled engines.
