Deen Shipping is currently building the innovative ship ‘The Argonon’ in close collaboration with several partners. The most special thing about The Argonon is that the ship will sail on dual fuel, a mixture of 80% LNG (liquefied natural gas) and 20% diesel. This results in a significantly lower emission of CO2 and NOx and reduces the emission of particulates to zero! The Argonon is the first barge in Europe that sails on dual fuel. The mixture is not only much more environmentally friendly, it’s also cheaper than diesel, which leads to a decrease in costs.
Reduction of the noise by ship engines, due to the disappearance of the ‘diesel clatter’ and due to less hard explosions in the cylinders.
It leads to a significantly lower emission of CO2 and NOx and reduces the emission of particulates to almost zero!
The oil supplies in the world are slowly depleting. Gas however, will be available for hundreds of years to come.
