Maersk is partnering with REintegrate to produce carbon natural e-methanol as part of Maersk’s efforts to develop the alternate fuel for its first dual-fuel methanol-powered vessel. REintegrate has been pursuing the production of green e-methanol in its test laboratory in Aalborg.  Plans call for the new facility to produce the approximately 10,000 tons of e-methanol that Maersk’s first vessel will require annually while in service. Earlier this year, Maersk announced that it would begin to explore methanol through the operation of a pilot vessel, a feeder operated by a Maersk subsidiary, Sealand Europe, on a Baltic shipping route. The energy needed for the power-to-methanol production will be provided by a solar farm located in southern Denmark.
