Green Marine Engineering, an independent fully integrated transition advisory and project management firm, has signed a sales agreement with global renewable energy company, e1 Marine, for its methanol-to-hydrogen reformer technology.
From 1 October 2022, Green Marine Engineering is e1 Marine’s sales representative in northern Europe. The partnership will focus on offering shipowners the benefits of e1 Marine’s methanol-to-hydrogen reformer for generating fuel for polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells.
Green Marine will facilitate investments in methanol powered vessels across multiple market segments such as container, bulk and tanker vessels as part of the agreement.
“Collaboration, such as our agreement with Green Marine Engineering, is essential to better provide services to our customers in North Europe,” notes Robert Schluter, Managing Director at e1 Marine.
“The local representation will focus on enabling shipowners to meet decarbonisation goals set for 2030 and beyond using methanol-reforming technology. We are ready to support first-movers – those leaders who will forge the way forward on decarbonisation. Our on-demand power system has no moving parts, generates no vibration and is more future-proof than internal combustion engines due to its greater efficiency and clean power production.
“We are confident that by partnering with Green Marine who not only understands the intricacies of our technology but has the broader knowledge and networks to hold meaningful conversations with ship owners in Europe, will help to accelerate uptake of this vital solution in the region.”
“Methanol is a safe, bio-degradable and globally available marine fuel,” says Fredrik Stubner, Co-founder and CEO of Green Marine Engineering.
“We are taking action to help decarbonise the global shipping industry through innovative methanol-based solutions that align with IMO emission reduction targets for 2030/2050 and the Paris Agreement.
“Methanol technology is transforming shipping and delivering an economically feasible solution. We offer ship owners turn-key, methanol-based, maritime transition solutions and have in-house capabilities and support functions across the entire value chain.
“Green Marine Engineering believes in the power of e1 Marine’s methanol-to-hydrogen reformer technology and its capability to reduce shipping’s environmental footprint, and we welcome the opportunity to represent e1 Marine across Northern Europe.”
