Six Nordic industry companies has, in line with the UN sustainability goals, joined forces to form an initiative called Zero Emission Energy Distribution at Sea (ZEEDS).
The collaboration is spearheaded by Wärtsilä, a leader in smart technologies for the marine and energy markets.
It further consists of Aker Solutions, a global engineering company, Equinor, a multinational energy company, DFDS, an international shipping and logistics company, Grieg Star, an international ship owning and operating company and Kvaerner, a leading engineering, procurement and construction company.
The ZEEDS project partners have explored potential solutions together, and will present the most promising ideas in Oslo at Future Innovation Day – Horizons on 3 June and during Nor-Shipping on 4 June.
“The ZEEDS-partners recognise that the transition to clean fuels will require a collective effort. We believe that by addressing the supply, storage and distribution chain, we can accelerate the switch to cleaner shipping fuels,” says Cato Espero, Sales Director, Marine division, Nordics and Baltics, Wartsila.
“We are excited to share our ideas and even more importantly get feedback on how we can further develop and improve.”
“In order to develop a sustainable solution to this challenge, we, as a society have to work together.
“In saying that we need the support from authorities and are calling for them to implement incentives that will enable us to find the fastest route to zero emission shipping.”
