The ongoing emissions control regime around the world continues to provide challenges for the shipowner both in terms of operating his current fleet but also making decisions about new builds. In this session the regulatory regime will be introduced in overview and then the potential for solutions such as the use of scrubbers or alternative fuels such as LNG will be considered. The financial impact on the owner will be reviewed and then the hull insurance impacts analysed both in terms of where claims might be reduced, but also where new claims might be arising.
