A.P. Moller-Maersk has entered into a partnership with SunGas Renewables, which is based in the United States and a leader in providing technology systems for large-scale production of 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. The SunGas facilities will utilize its flagship platform to convert sustainably sourced residues from the forestry and wood products industries into green methanol. SunGas joins eight other strategic partners working to supply the green fuel needed for the 19 methanol enabled container vessels Maersk currently has on order. The other partners are Carbon Sink, CIMC ENRIC, Debo, European Energy, Green Technology Bank, Orsted, Proman, and Wastefuel.
