SGMF continues the WiGS initiative to recognise and shine a light on the women who are making great contributions to, and driving change, in gas-fuelled shipping. Here we highlight three inspirational women with diverse backgrounds and roles, all helping their organisations and ultimately the industry to make the huge transition away from heavy fuel oils to cleaner gaseous fuels.

Read how Karlene Bylund, in her role as Director Commercial at Pilbara Ports Authority has developed LNG ship-to-ship and truck-to-ship bunkering licences and played an instrumental role executing the first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering licence in an Australian port recently.

Debbie Turner, a Senior Broker at Howe Robinson Partners in London provides advice to clients on the use of gas as a marine fuel and broking for new builds which may use LNG as a fuel. Her work in LNG began in 2002, when she was given the responsibility of establishing an LNG desk at Braemar.

And finally, we have Liu Tieying who is an expert in LNG bunkering. Working in the LNG R&D team at China Classification Society (CCS) she has been focusing on LNG and has played a significant role in the development of rules and standards for LNG-fuelled shipping in China.
