The Chemship B.V. chemical tanker, Chemical Challenger, managed by Fleet Management Limited, has earned the distinction of being the first vessel awarded the Green Award GHG Label for CO2 reduction by the Green Award Foundation. This label acknowledges ships that significantly lower their greenhouse gas emissions through innovative and sustainable technologies. The Chemical Challenger underwent a retrofit to install Econowind’s VentoFoil wing sail system, which consists of four 16-meter high aluminum wing sails. This system is designed to reduce the vessel’s CO2 emissions by 10% annually, amounting to about 850 tonnes, comparable to the emissions from over 500 cars per year. This achievement not only sets a new industry standard but also aligns with the Green Award Foundation’s goal to promote environmentally friendly shipping practices and recognize industry leaders in sustainability.
