Hapag-Lloyd says it is currently preparing two pilot projects that are associated with the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) upcoming 0.5 percent global cap on fuel sulphur content in January 2020.

The projects are to include the testing of exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCSs), also known as 'scrubbers', on two large container ships as well as converting a large vessel in the company's fleet to liquefied natural gas (LNG) propulsion.

The details were disclosed in the company's half-year report, released on Friday.

As previously revealed, Hapag-Lloyd's bunker consumption rose by 0.5m tonnes, or 29.4 percent, to 2.2m tonnes in the first six months of 2018 following last year's merger with United Arab Shipping Company (UASC).

Hapag-Lloyd forms part of the Trident Alliance - a coalition of ship owners and operators who share a common interest in the robust enforcement of maritime sulphur regulation as a means to ensure fair competition.
