Stena Line, DFDS, Ørsted and Liquid Wind will form a partnership with the Port of Gothenburg to establish an electromethanol (e-fuels) hub.
With the intent to launch in 2025, this venture is a tangible step toward a carbon neutral shipping industry. In this matter, Stena Line is partnering with the Port of Gothenburg, DFDS, the Danish shipping and logistics company and FlagshipONE which is jointly owned by Ørsted, and Liquid Wind.
FlagshipONE, which is in late-stage development and approaching a final investment decision, will be the largest e-fuels facility in the world, producing 50,000 tonnes of eMethanol annually.
This collaboration is supported by the Port of Gothenburg, the first shipping port to actively pursue a green fuels policy ensuring carbon neutral operations by 2030.
The five companies will now work together to launch the first renewable, ‘Made in Sweden’ marine fuel, to encourage more companies to choose carbon neutral e-fuels.
Being an industry leader within sustainability, Stena Line has the ambition to achieve a climate neutral operation. This partnership is yet another proof point of our dedication to reduce our carbon footprint
said Niclas Mårtensson, CEO, Stena Line.
