OCI Global and X-Press Feeders have signed an agreement to supply the Singapore shipping company’s new vessels with green methanol in Rotterdam. Source: Port of Rotterdam The first vessel from X-Press Feeders, a dual-fuelled hybrid vessel, is expected to arrive in Rotterdam during the second quarter of 2024. X-Press Feeders has a total of fourteen methanol dual-fuel container ships on order. The Port of Rotterdam Authority enthusiastically embraces this collaboration between OCI Global and X-Press Feeders, as it perfectly aligns with the port’s ambition to become carbon-neutral. Largest producer of green methanol OCI, a Dutch company, is the world’s largest producer of green methanol. Recently, OCI made headlines by signing an agreement with Maersk to fuel its first green methanol-powered container ship. The vessel’s anticipated arrival in the port of Rotterdam is 26 August. Earlier this year, OCI announced its partnership with Unibarge, a Dutch-Swiss company specialising in inland tanker shipping. As part of this collaboration, Unibarge is retrofitting a bunker barge to supply green methanol as fuel for shipping on behalf of OCI. Expanding its eco-friendly initiatives, OCI plans to extend the delivery of green methanol to shipping in various other ports than Rotterdam.

A.P. Moller – Maersk and SunGas Renewables sign strategic green methanol partnership

Source: MAERSK  As part of its strategy to decarbonize customers’ supply chains, A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has entered a green* methanol Letter of Intent with U.S. based SunGas Renewables, Inc., a spin-out of GTI Energy, and a leader in providing technology and equipment systems for large-scale production of renewable fuels. This is Maersk’s 9th such partnership to drive the acceleration of global production capacity for green methanol. The Letter of Intent covers the production of green methanol from multiple facilities to be developed by SunGas in the United States from which Maersk intends to offtake full volumes of green methanol. The first facility is expected to begin operations in 2026 and have an annual production capacity of approximately 390,000 tonnes. Securing green marine fuels at a global scale within this decade will require rapid scale up of green methanol production capacity using a variety of technology and feedstock pathways. We are very pleased to welcome SunGas Renewables as a strategic partner in our efforts to achieve our goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions in 2040 across our entire business, and to ensure meaningful progress is made within this decade in line with the Paris Agreement.
