Are you a seafarer with experience in jobs at sea that include working on LNG fuelled ships? If so you’re in high demand! As a greener cleaner energy Liquified Natural Gas is very likely changing the future of the maritime industry. And mariners who have the expertise will see their popularity rise!
Currently making the world maritime news is the International Maritime Organization’s plan to implement a global sulphur cap. But if you haven’t had a chance to read up on this huge change for the shipping industry yet, Martide have the lowdown on what it is and what it means for shipping companies.
Why does the maritime industry have a skills shortage? The increasing need for seafarers with tech skills? A general disinterest in seafaring as a job? The lack of women entering the sector? The reasons are debatable but it’s clear the ratio of men to women in maritime is seriously disproportionate.
Martide wish to offer our sincere congratulations to Nordic Hamburg who, in conjunction with Shell LNG, after five years of painstaking preparatory work, reached a huge milestone in the industry this week: executing the world’s very first simultaneous LNG bunkering during container cargo operations.
