#FerryMethanol – Classification society Lloyd's Register (LR) is set to class Sweden-based Stena Line's ferry Stena Germanica, claimed to be world's first methanol-powered sea vessel.

For the conversion of the 240m-long, 1,500-passenger Stena Germanica vessel to methanol propulsion, Stena has collaborated with Wärtsilä, the Port of Gothenburg, the Port of Kiel and Methanex Corporation, the world's largest methanol producer and supplier.

Five LR surveying teams from offices in Copenhagen, Trieste, Gothenburg, Venice and Southampton, have already overseen preliminary tests on a methanol-modified Wartsila engine 6ZAL40S that is similar to the one to be fitted on Germanica.
