Maersk Tankers on Monday (17 January) said it will be launching a decarbonisation hub to gather intelligence and create solutions to help shipowners and cargo customers cut emissions.
The decarbonisation hub will bring experts, shipowners, cargo customers and other stakeholders together to develop a suite of solutions that will reduce emissions from cargo customers’ supply chains and shipowners’ operations, notes Maersk Tankers.
It will gather and share external and internal intelligence on regulations and developments in tanker shipping’s decarbonisation, and provide emission transparency on the transportation of cargoes.
“There is an immediate need for shipping to change its emissions trajectory. The decarbonisation hub is part of our commitment to create a more sustainable path for shipping through sector-wide collaboration,” says Christian M. Ingerslev, CEO at Maersk Tankers.
The hub will be headed by Frederik Pind, Head of Decarbonisation at Maersk Tankers, and will be staffed by a specialist, cross-disciplinary team. They will work with external and internal stakeholders to support the establishment of commercial and regulatory means to cut emissions. The team is anchored in the Commercial department at Maersk Tankers.
“Shipowners have to deal with complex regulatory requirements and changing customer demand stemming from the need to decarbonise shipping. With the hub, we are bringing together stakeholders to use our combined expertise to simplify, provide transparency and create new solutions that will help both shipowners and cargo customers reduce emissions,” says Eva Birgitte Bisgaard, Chief Commercial Officer at Maersk Tankers.
The decarbonisation hub, which will liaise with external stakeholders including global associations working to decarbonise shipping, is expected to be fully established during the coming months.

ISO delegates represented seven countries and were in Singapore to attend a three-day meeting of ISO WG13 to develop two new ISO bunkering standards, learns Singapore bunkering publication Manifold Times.
Cai Zhi Zhong received a total of about USD 1.3m to USD 1.6m, of which he saved a portion and spent the rest, including on property, cars and watches, according to court documents obtained by Manifold Times.
‘MFMs will continue to have a place within the bunkering sector even when the shipping industry continues to adopt new types of marine fuels, such as LNG, biofuel, methanol, ammonia and hydrogen,’ states spokesman.
Current ISO 8217 bunker fuel standard not comprehensive enough for biofuels; National Mirror Committee working with local players to develop more comprehensive biofuels standard for Singapore, says Capt. Rahul.
‘There are some important differences between VLSFO and biofuels, and as a result, parties should consider whether additional changes should be made to biofuel bunker contracts,’ says Paul Collier.
