AP Moller-Maersk unveils green fuel vessel

A.P. Moller-Maersk today unveiled the design of its first green fuel powered vessel soon to be delivered by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard.

A.P. Moller-Maersk, in a statement, said the building of the vessel is still on and has a dual-fuel engine and will be able to operate on green methanol signposting its commitment to lead the way towards a sustainable shipping industry.

“I am very happy with the progress we are making on the project. We have now completed all key design-relates 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, Head of Fleet Production, in the statement.

Curious about the new branding and our star featuring on the side of the vessel for the first time? Brian Borup, Senior Brand and Design Manager, said “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 decolonization efforts.”
