The Port of Montreal, in collaboration with QSL and Oceanex, is working on creating a green shipping corridor between Montreal and St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. This initiative aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in marine shipping by exploring the use of alternative, low-emission fuels, and direct electrification technologies. Oceanex, experienced in alternative fuel research, is considering options like ammonia, methanol, and hydrogen for their vessels. The Port is also interested in implementing shore power, using Quebec’s green hydroelectricity, to reduce emissions during cargo trans-loading. This project could significantly reduce the carbon footprint of freight transport between the two ports, aligning with the Port’s vision to lead in decarbonization and substantially reduce GHG emissions.
