Maersk desplegará el primer gran buque que funciona con metanol

December 13, 2023 - La gigante naviera danesa Maersk ha anunciado que empezará a operar en febrero el primero de 18 barcos portacontenedores que pueden funcionar con metanol en la ruta comercial Asia-Europa.

The container vessel built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea has a nominal capacity of 16,000 containers and is equipped with a dual-fuel engine enabling operations on methanol as well as biodiesel and conventional fuel, according to Maersk.

Green methanol, produced either from biomass or captured carbon and hydrogen from renewable power, can reduce carbon dioxide emissions from container ships by 60% to 95% compared with conventional fossil fuels, Reuters said.
