World's first carbon-neutral container ship expected to sail in 2023

PanARMENIAN.Net - World’s largest shipping line Maersk introduces the first ever carbon-neutral container vessel, expected to be at sea in 2023 – seven years ahead of the initial ambition, designboom reports.

Due to increasing customer demand for sustainable supply chains, the company accelerates the efforts to decarbonize marine operations with the launch of a methanol-fuelled 2,000 TEU feeder vessel, deployed on an intra-regional network.

Maritime transport is essential for the various intercontinental businesses, and it’s one of the cheapest that exists, but it’s also very polluting.

The danish group also shared that all future maersk owned new buildings will have dual-fuel technology installed.

Maersk’s methanol feeder vessel will be deployed in one of its intra-regional networks, likely Europe. While the supercargo will be able to operate on standard VLSFO, the plan is to operate the vessel on carbon-neutral e-methanol or sustainable bio-methanol from day one.
