When Danish shipping conglomerate A.P. Moeller Maersk on Thursday in Copenhagen is naming the World’s first methanol fueled cargo vessel, then many might ask how she was built and how did it all look like during the building phase?

She was built at the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in S.Korea and here A. P. Moeller Maersk giving an insight via a timelapse showing the full shipbuilding process.

The 2,100 teu feeder vessel is making a small piece of history in the shipping industry.

The new vessel will bring real experience for Maersk seafarers in operating the new type of fuel, as the company prepares to receive a fleet of new, large ocean-going dual-fuel engine powered ships from 2024.

Maersk aims to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions in 2040 across the entire business. To get there in time, the company aims to transport a minimum 25% of Ocean cargo using green fuels by 2030, compared to a 2020 baseline.

Receiving the landmark dual-fuel engine vessel is a major step towards the long-term objective of gradually renewing the entire Maersk fleet to operate solely on green fuels and making a tangible impact in the industry’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as the top management of Maersk claims.
