Samskip launches its next-generation zero emission short sea container vessels

Samskip, global logistics solution providers with offices in 24 countries, is venturing into “zero carbon emission free shipping services” by contracting Two Hydrogen fuel powered vessels to provide service its west European routes by signing a ship building contract with the leading Indian shipyard Cochin Shipyard Ltd.

Once commissioned, these vessels will be among the First Zero Emission Short Sea Container Vessel in the world using Green Hydrogen as the fuel. This is another of Samskip’s ambitious projects as they work together with the Norwegian Government green funding program aimed at emission-free transport solutions by adopting sustainable innovative future technologies.

In zero emission mode, each vessel is expected to achieve around 25,000 tons of CO2 reduction per year. They will achieve zero emission operations in ports as well by using green shore power at the port of call.

CEO Samskip Group – Kari-Pekka Laaksonen: “This endeavour is another of Samskip’s initiatives that is an important step towards reaching our sustainability targets outlined in our latest sustainability report.

“It reinforces our commitment to the Sustainability Science Based Target initiative and will support our goal of reaching Net-Zero by 2040. We have continuously practiced what we preached because sustainability is in our DNA and we are invested in the future; the future for green logistics, our planet, our economy and in the next generation of seafarers and we are certain that this project will be a game changer.

“Samskip is delighted to have found such a partnership in Cochin Shipyard who shares the same ambitions to provide environmentally friendly transportation and we look forward to a successful cooperation.”
