A.P. Moller – Maersk has unveiled the design of its first green fuel powered vessel
A.P. Moller – Maersk has unveiled the design of its First Green Fuel Powered Vessel. The building of the vessel is on, and the vessel is soon to be delivered by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard.
The feeder vessel has a dual-fuel engine and will be able to operate on green methanol, taking Maersk’s commitment to lead the way towards a sustainable shipping industry.
“I am very happy with the progress we are making on the project. We have now completed all key design-related milestones and production is progressing at full speed with delivery expected during summer. It has been a huge project, but we have succeeded not least due to great collaboration internally in Maersk and with our external partners,” says Ole Graa Jakobsen, Head of Fleet Technology.
“In order to communicate that the vessel is the start of a new generation of green methanol vessels, we looked at how to best communicate this. We ended up with the tagline “ALL THE WAY TO ZERO” to build on our existing brand platform and to highlight our decarbonisation efforts.” Brian Borup Senior Brand and Design Manager.
