The Cummins marine engine will be on display throughout the exhibition on the Alicat workboat on berth V28, courtesy of Gardline Marine Services, who are partners in the GLEAMS (Glycerine Fuel for Engines and Marine Sustainability) project, and Dalby Offshore, the vessel's new owners. The Technology Strategy Board funded project is investigating the use of glycerine as a marine fuel to comply with the highest regulations for sulphur and nitrous oxide emissions, as well as slashing carbon emissions and potentially reducing costs.

The seminar, being held on Wednesday 11th June 2014 at 2.00pm at Seawork will explain why glycerine is an attractive proposition for use as a marine fuel and give an update on the testing being done to validate glycerine as an alternative to conventional marine fuels.
