Shipping giant Maersk unveils world’s first vessel using green methanol
Sector: Shipping & Ports
- The new container ship, ordered in 2021, has two engines: one moved by traditional fuels and another run with green methanol — an alternative component, which uses biomass or captured carbon and hydrogen from renewable power.
- Practically speaking, the new vessel emits 100 tons of carbon dioxide less per day compared to diesel-based ships.
- “It’s a really symbolic day of our energy transition, really becoming a reality, something concrete that we can actually demonstrate, not just commitments and hard work, but actually something that everybody can see,” Maersk CEO Vincent Clerc told CNBC.
