container line JR Expedition is equipped with carbon capture systems to six more of his ships.
The company has ordered exhaust gas cleaning and carbon capture systems from Sea value for six of its vessels, the companies said in an emailed statement Wednesday.
Two of the company 750 TEUs feeder ships — the MV Endeavor and MV Energy — have already been equipped with the systems. The systems act as scrubbers by removing sulfur and other emissions as well as capturing carbon dioxide.
“The necessary path to a sustainable future has the full attention of the shipping industry worldwide,” Sander Schakelaarowner-manager of JR Shipping, said in the statement.
“The transition to sustainable shipping can only be accelerated if we turn the Green Deal into a profitable deal.
“Together with Value Maritime, we mapped out the possibilities for a fleet-wide program. We worked on the basis that shipowners can only invest to a limited extent in new facilities, our main focus was therefore to generate sustainability with long-term return prospects.”
