LNG Ready service

We provide technical and financial decision-making support for switching to LNG as ship fuel and assist with compliance.


In light of ever-tightening emission regulations, you need an expert partner who can support you in discovering if the switch to LNG as ship fuel is the most cost-effective solution for you vessel’s operational profile.

As part of our LNG Ready service, we provide decision-making support to ship owners, designers and yards. Backed by technical and financial feasibility studies, we assist you in making your vessels ready for future LNG retrofitting or for LNG operation today. 

Our tried-and-tested LNG Ready process consists of four easy steps  – to get you started on the course to LNG as ship fuel:

  1. Fuel decision support in line with the operational profile, concept design, financial assessment and fuel availability
  2. Concept design review against relevant rules and regulations, HAZID and expert guidance 
  3. Approval in Principle for novel and LNG-ready designs
  4. Risk assessment regarding the safety level of the LNG fuel system 

Once your vessel is LNG Ready, we issue class approval for your system.
