With ambitious targets to reduce its carbon intensity by 50% across its fleet in 2030, Maersk Supply Service has now taken the next step in its decarbonisation journey and ordered a battery pack for one of its M-class vessels.
Maersk Supply Service will reflag one of its energy-efficient M-class anchor handling vessels to the Norwegian flag, hire Norwegian crew and set up an office in Bergen. The plan is to have its first vessel ready for operation in Norwegian waters during summer 2021.
Maersk Tender will be accompanied by a sister vessel in the Pacific Ocean this summer, strengthening The Ocean Cleanup’s pursuit to rid the oceans of plastic. The extra vessel, Maersk Trader, was made possible by A.P. Møller-Maersk increasing its donation to the non-profit organisation, confirming its commitment to Ocean Health.
