A.P. Moller-Maersk has unveiled the design of its first green fuel-powered vessel. The feeder vessel has a dual-fuel engine and will be able to operate on green methanol.

The build will be delivered soon to be delivered by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, the company said on its LinkedIn page.

“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 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 Jakobsen, A.P. Moller head of 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,” said senior brand and design manager Brian Borup.
