The first offshore ship in the world to run on Shell GTL Fuel, the Kroonborg services unmanned North Sea platforms. If platform workers are downwind of the ship’s engine exhaust, Shell GTL Fuel helps to improve the quality of the air that they breathe.
“Shell GTL Fuel ensures that people on board and on the platform, are less exposed to local emissions, smells and engine noise. Furthermore, we have seen potential maintenance benefits of using Shell GTL Fuels as the engine system stays remarkably cleaner. This is one example of the many marine applications where Shell GTL Fuel can add value”
