A sweeping change in shipborne commerce will take effect on Jan. 1 with the implementation of the International Maritime Organization’s 0.5 percent sulfur cap. While operators in Emission Control Areas are already in compliance, big questions remain across North America about fuel quality and cost after the global shift. In its December/January issue, Professional Mariner examines what’s likely to happen and who will be affected. Moving beyond diesel, all-electric propulsion has proven viable for smaller commercial vessels. But can it step up to handle the demands imposed by tugboats and pilot boats? Many now believe the answer is yes, with plans in the works at Damen for the world’s first full-size electric tug. We also take a closer look at the challenges still ahead in the rollout of Subchapter M, and what led to the Conception dive boat disaster in California.
