Maersk to launch the world’s 1st carbon-neutral liner vessel by 2023. 7 years earlier than planned

Maersk to launch the world’s 1st carbon-neutral liner vessel by 2023. 7 years earlier than planned

Copenhagen, February 19 - Neftegaz.RU. The Danish AP Moller-Maersk, owner of the largest shipping company in the world, has announced its plans to launch the world’s 1st carbon-neutral liner vessel in 2023 to decarbonise marine operations.

The new vessel will be introduced 7 years ahead of the initial 2030 plan.
The vessel will be a methanol feeder with a capacity of around 2,000 TEU and it would be deployed in one of Maersk’s intra-regional networks.

While the vessel will be able to operate on standard very low sulfur fuel oil (VLSFO), the plan is to operate the vessel on carbon neutral e-methanol or sustainable bio-methanol from day one.

Søren Skou, CEO of A.P. Moller - Maersk, said:
  • Maersk’s ambition is to lead the way in decarbonising global logistics
  • Our customers expect us to help them decarbonise their global supply chains
  • Our ambition to have a carbon neutral fleet by 2050 was a moonshot when we announced in 2018
  • Today we see it as a challenging, yet achievable target to reach
The news is likely to be well received among Maersk’s big shippers.
It said around half its 200 largest customers had set – or were in the process of setting – ambitious science-based or zero-carbon targets for their supply chains, and that number is on the rise.

Maersk is also continuing to investigate other forms of carbon-neutral fuel and 《expects multiple fuel solutions》 to exist in the future.
Methanol (e-methanol and bio-methanol), alcohol-lignin blends and ammonia remain the primary fuel candidates, it added.
