A.P. Moller - Maersk accelerated its efforts in decarbonizing marine operations by the plan to operate the world’s first carbon-neutral liner vessel in 2023, 7 years ahead of schedule.
Other than that, all the new buildings owned by the company will have to install dual-fuel technology, either carbon-neutral operations or operation on standard very low sulfur fuel oil (VLSFO).
The methanol feeder vessel will be deployed in one of its intra-regional networks with a nameplate capacity of roughly 2,000 TEU. the vessel will be able to operate on standard VLSFO but Maersk has set it to operate on carbon-neutral e-methanol or sustainable bio-methanol.
Looking ahead, the company will keep exploring several carbon-neutral fuel pathways and predicts multiple fuel solutions to exist together in the future. Maersk listed methanol (e-methanol and bio-methanol), alcohol-lignin blends, and ammonia as the primary fuel candidates for the future.
