In 2017, the 1,036-teu Wes Amelie became the first containership to undergo an LNG engine conversion and now she will be the first ship in the world to trial carbon-neutral synthetic natural gas (SNG) on a voyage set to take place in 2020. During the trial, Wes Amelie will replace a share of the LNG used during a roundtrip voyage with SNG produced from “green hydrogen and provided by auto manufacturer Audi from the company’s new Power-to-Gas facility in Germany, where a liquefaction plant is currently under construction.

Wes Amelie is a modern feeder vessel operating in the North and Baltic Seas that was originally launched in 2011.
