Maersk has entered into the shipping industry’s first large-scale agreement for green methanol with China’s Goldwind. The deal involves half a million tonnes of green methanol annually and will power 12 large ocean-going container ships. The deliveries from Goldwind are expected to begin in 2026. Maersk is investing in green fuels to power its fleet as part of its goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040. The shipping industry, responsible for 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions, aims for net-zero emissions by 2050. The green methanol volumes from Goldwind will be produced using wind energy in northeast China.
