MSC Jewel clean ship rewarded in Long Beach

574 MSC Jewel


The port of Long Beach has welcomed the cleanest containership to travel to the US - the 14,436-TEU MSC Jewel, at Total Terminals International's Pier T facility. The vessel owned by Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) is powered by tier III diesel engines, which are 75 per cent cleaner than the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) tier II standard. In addition to its clean engine, all MSC vessels are shore-power equipped, enabling them to connect to the landside electrical grid to reduce emissions when berthed. The carrier will receive US$6,000 from the port of Long Beach's Green Ship Incentive Programme.
