TES & “K” Line Propel e-NG Revolution In Shipping

53

  • “K” LINE and TES are investigating potential collaboration avenues, including expanding e-NG partnerships and exploring different aspects of the value chain to expedite the adoption of cleaner fuels in maritime transportation.
  • The partnership involves combining captured CO2 emissions with green hydrogen to generate e-NG, enabling the shift to cleaner bunker fuels for “K” LINE’s ships.

Tree Energy Solutions (TES), a global green energy company leading the way in the production of e-NG (electric natural gas derived from green hydrogen), and Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” LINE), a prominent Japanese logistics company renowned for its diverse fleet, are teaming up with each other to lead the transition towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in the maritime sector by 2050.

Partnership for sustainable maritime shipping solutions

With a mission to deliver reliable and affordable green energy through giga-scale projects, TES is developing a global portfolio of e-NG production and import projects. e-NG, a green molecule obtained by combining green hydrogen with biogenic or recycled CO2, is poised to revolutionize the decarbonization of the maritime transport sector. In parallel, “K” LINE is strategically advancing towards 2030 interim milestones, which include transitioning its vessel to cleaner fuels such as hydrogen and e-NG.

“K” LINE and TES are exploring potential collaboration opportunities, including broadening the scope of e-NG partnerships and the various facets of the value chain to accelerate the adoption of cleaner fuels in maritime transport. This collaboration entails blending captured CO2 emissions with green hydrogen to produce e-NG, thereby facilitating the transition to cleaner bunker fuels for “K” LINE’s vessels. Such discussions aim to secure and procure e-NG, a sustainable fuel to meet the “K” LINE’s or its subsidiaries’ bunkering needs in Europe, originating from the TES green energy hub in Wilhelmshaven, Germany.

Moreover, both parties will consider the regulatory landscape surrounding low/non-carbon fuels, carbon intensity, CO2 accounting, certification, and incentive schemes. By such a consideration of supportive regulatory frameworks, “K” LINE and TES aim to bolster the development of e-NG projects, driving forward transition to a more sustainable energy future.

In addition to commercial endeavors, technical collaboration is also on the agenda, encompassing the operation and management of e-NG carriers and Liquified CO2 carriers and the exchange of information relating to CO2 capture and utilization onboard vessels.
