The Ultra Low Emission Vessel (ULEV)

08/15/2023

The pursuit of sustainable practices in the shipping industry has led to a concerted effort to minimize emissions from large engine operations. This drive has given rise to the concept of Ultra Low Emission Vessels (ULEVs), which exceed existing emission standards and embrace cutting-edge technologies to ensure a cleaner maritime future. In the shipping industry, […]
