Gerd-Michael Würsig
Consultant at GMW Consultancy


From my professional life in technical and business development positions I have a background on liquefied gases and other alternative fuels for ships, design and classification of ships covered by the IMO IGF-Code and IGC-Code, fuel cell systems, safety analysis and seminars related to these subjects. As a process and energy engineer with long term experience in shipping I offer independent consultancy to the stakeholders in shipping like owners, suppliers, yards, NGOs and authorities. I represented GL, DNV and DNV GL at SIGTTO and SGMF and contributed to ISO working groups as well as to the development of the IMO IGF-Code as a consultant for the German government.
