SINGAPORE SHIPPING FORUM 2021: SHIPPING - POST-PANDEMIC - SHIPPING COMPANY TRANSFORMATION TO MEET NEW CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES

Singapore Shipping Forum 2021

Shipping decarbonisation transition is a massive effort, and the responsibility cannot fall on ship owners alone, in the opinion of Mr. Dimitris Patrikios, CEO of Kyklades Maritime Corporation. Mr. Patrikios noted that the energy transition represents a radical shift from existing mindsets, technologies, and practices, and opined that ship owners need to be compensated for the transition risk. The scale of the effort is massive, with estimates of the required effort ranging from USD1.65 to 3.4 trillion by 2050, and may result in a fragmented fuels market, with different types of clean fuels being deployed for different types of voyages.

Mr. Patrikios envisages that the decarbonisation effort will be best undertaken via an ecosystem of industry stakeholders that collaborate in projects that start small but can scale up fast once successful, all coordinated by incentives led by the IMO.
