The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Zero Carbon Shipping has welcomed Equinor as a Strategic Partner, committing to a long-term strategic collaboration and contribution to the development of zero carbon technologies and solutions for the maritime industry.

The multinational energy company brings experience in large scale production and transport of maritime fuels and will contribute with valuable expertise in key areas like safety in operation and design, carbon capture storage design and operation, and renewable energy integration including floating wind technology. Equinor is both a producer and a supplier of fuel to the maritime sector and has worked systematically on reducing its carbon intensity by developing new types of vessels and using alternative fuels.

Centre CEO Bo Cerup-Simonsen said: “This partnership has huge potential. As a major producer of maritime fuels and maritime player, Equinor has invaluable knowhow and has already shown enormous energy and willingness to accelerate the transition with promising projects. This is the mentality we need, and we are looking very much forward seeing the synergies we can create together.”

Equinor VP Shipping, Heidi Aakre, said: “We are very pleased in joining the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Zero Carbon Shipping. The Centre is complementary to other initiatives and organisations we are engaged in. As a producer and user of maritime fuel, Equinor is working to decarbonize shipping. Together with the maritime industry, we will develop new solutions contributing to substantial emission reductions.”
