LILLESTRØM, Norway: May 27, 2019. Six Nordic companies have formed the Zero Emission Energy Distribution at Sea (ZEEDS) initiative to help reduce maritime shipping CO2 emissions from its current level of one billion tonnes annually.

Nordic ZEEDSThe group is made up of Wärtsilä, producer of smart technologies for the marine and energy markets; Aker Solutions, a global engineering company; Equinor, a multinational energy company; shipping and logistics company DFDS; ship owner and operator Grieg Star; and Kvaerner, an engineering, procurement and construction company.

“The ZEEDS-partners recognise that the transition to clean fuels will require a collective effort. We believe that by addressing the supply, storage and distribution chain, we can accelerate the switch to cleaner shipping fuels,” said Cato Espero, Wärtsilä Sales Director, Marine division, Nordics and Baltics.

The ZEEDS project partners say they have already explored potential solutions and will present them in Oslo at the Future Innovation Day – Horizons on June 03 & June 04.

“In order to develop a sustainable solution to this challenge, we, as a society have to work together,” added Espero. “[This means] we need the support from authorities and are calling for them to implement incentives that will enable us to find the fastest route to zero emission shipping.”
