Danish shipping major A.P. Moller-Maersk unveiled the design of its first green fuel powered vessel, which is expected to be delivered in the summer by South Korea’s Hyundai Mipo Dockyard.

The Danish company’s feeder vessel has a dual-fuel engine and will be able to operate on green methanol, as Maersk has made a 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 of the ship 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,” said Ole Graa Jacobsen, Head of Maersk 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,” noted Brian Borup, Maersk Senior Brand and Design Manager.
