Aker Clean Hydrogen and Kuehne+Nagel are joining forces to decarbonize the maritime logistics sector by offering green container transport, reports Splash247.
The two companies envision the expansion of Kuehne+Nagel’s offer of green fuels such as hydrogen, ammonia and methanol.
Through this partnership, both companies want to help scale fossil-free shipping early on. While Aker Clean Hydrogen will secure access to green fuels, Kuehne+Nagel handles the booking of contracts for environmentally friendly containers in cooperation with their carrier partners.
Aker Clean Hydrogen and Kuehne+Nagel are already in discussions with container ship owners who share the ambition of fossil-free shipping and who want to convert to hydrogen, ammonia and methanol engines.
Avoiding carbon emissions
Through partnerships with these carriers, Kuehne+Nagel’s customers will in the future be able to purchase the appropriate amount of green fuels for their cargo via the Mass-Balance-Concept and instantly avoid CO2 emissions in their supply chains.
“The Mass-Balance-Concept is crucial in the transition towards replacing fossil fuels with green fuels such as hydrogen and ammonia,” said Arne Faaberg, Managing Director of Kuehne+Nagel Norway.
