SIX leading Nordic companies have joined forces to work towards acheiving the United Nations environmental sustainability goals in a programme called Zero Emission Energy Distribution at Sea (ZEEDS).

Annually, shipping is responsible for nearly one billion tonnes of CO2 gas emissions globally, and the consortium is trying to address this by developing a new infrastructure for green fuels for ships.



The collaboration is spearheaded by Wartsila, a provider of 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 shipowning and operating company and Kvaerner, an engineering and construction company.



'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,' said Wartsila sales director Cato Espero.



Through the ZEEDS project, partners have explored potential solutions together, and the most promising ideas will be presented in Oslo at Future Innovation Day - Horizons on June 3 and during Nor-Shipping on June 4.
