Maersk to Test Biofuel on Its Triple E Vessel

554 Maersk Biofuel

 

Maersk has partnered with members of the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition on the world’s largest marine biofuel pilot project. The pilot will see a large triple-E ocean vessel sail 25,000 nautical miles from Rotterdam to Shanghai and back on biofuel blends alone, saving 1.5 million kilograms CO2 and 20,000 kilograms of sulphur. The voyage will take place between March and June 2019. While Maersk will be the operating partner, the pilot is sponsored by Friesl and Campina, Heineken, Philips, DSM, Shell and Unilever, and Shell will provide the fuel.
