Putin: Carriers need to be encouraged to use green fuel
Shipbuilders and carriers need to be encouraged to use ships which operate on environmentally friendly types of fuel, for example, LNG, pointed out President Vladimir Putin during a plenary session of, The Arctic: Territory of Dialogue 5th International Arctic Forum.
"I mean primarily gas fuel, especially ships that navigate in the northern seas, in the Arctic zone. <…> It would be necessary to encourage shipbuilding companies and carriers to use such types of transport and such fuel," Putin said.
The Arctic: Territory of Dialogue 5th International Arctic Forum was held in St. Petersburg on April 9 and 10. The State Commission for the Development of the Arctic convened for a meeting on April 9.
