Future proof ships

Wartsila is trying to create future proof bulkers and tankers:
Nobody can know what the future holds, but personally I don’t think LNG as fuel is “the fuel of the future”.

Nothing is “Future proof”. As long as accidents occur, not attainable at this time in our industry, no matter what fuel you use. Industry has had quite a few accidents lately, did it matter what kind of fuel was used to avoid the accident? Regarding the bulker, lt would have made a difference in pollution now occurring if Lng was used as a propulsion source. In addition, always helps if somebody on the bridge was paying attention to where the eff they were at.

Not “Accident proof”, just ready for whatever the future brings, or so Warsila think.
