Oslo-based P&I Club Skuld has joined the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping as part of the insurer’s stated intention to protect ocean industries.
The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping is a not-for-profit, independent research- and development institute working with industry players across the energy and shipping sectors to mature viable decarbonisation pathways for shipping globally.
Its mission is to facilitate the development and implementation of new energy and maritime technologies and by so doing accelerate the transition to net zero.
The Centre, founded in 2000, is Copenhagen-based, with partners including Alfa Laval, the American Bureau of Shipping, AP Moller – Maersk, BP, MAN Energy Solutions, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsui, Norden, NYK Line, Seaspan, Sumitomo Corporation, Swire Group, and TotalEnergies.
Ståle Hansen, (pic) Skuld president and CEO said: “Sustainability is an essential part of Skuld’s strategy, culture and identity. As a membership organisation we are frequently contacted for advice on decarbonisation and this partnership with MMMC will further support and promote our common goal of securing and providing tomorrow’s zero carbon shipping solutions.
“The zero carbon center is a world-leading initiative supported by some of the biggest names in the marine sector, and we are delighted to be able to support it.”
“We are happy to welcome Skuld to our group of mission partners,” said Tanja Dalgaard, head of partnerships, funding & commercialisation at the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center.
“The mission partnership model is offered to companies and organisations across the shipping value chain that share our ambition of a decarbonized maritime industry and would like to be closely connected to the center’s work through a formalized network and information flow.”
