LONDON/ COPENHAGEN: Software company Sea has joined the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping (the Center).
Sea provides commercial software for global maritime trade including a pre-trade intelligence & analytics tool that processes over 68.7 billion automatic identification system data points annually.
The tool can also provide emissions evaluations for analysis of green corridors and waiting times and fleet speed to estimate emission reductions.
“With Sea, the Center will get important insights into global fleet operations which can help us fast-track the development and implementation of green corridors, technology projects, and progressive regulatory frameworks,” commented CEO Bo Cerup-Simonsen.
According to the Center, the world’s 100,000 commercial vessels consume around 300 million tons of fuel every year - producing 3.0 percent of global carbon emissions.
Founded in 2020, the non-profit, independent research and development center aims to accelerate the transition towards a net-zero future for the maritime industry. With 15 knowledge partners including the Sustainable Shipping Initiative, Boston Consulting Group, Allen & Overy and the Global Maritime Forum, it facilitates the development and implementation of new technologies for system and regulation change.
“Our platform will accelerate the center’s work in enabling future solutions, concepts, and standards – including modelling viable decarbonisation pathways,” declared Sea CEO Peter Schroder. “Sea’s purpose is to power better decisions to enable sustainable shipping, so we’re proud to be joining this powerful alliance of global organizations.”
The Center has also attracted strategic partners that influence its strategic direction with ideas, knowledge, experience, people, network, financial resources and access to test facilities. Currently numbering 24, the group includes BP, Total Energies, Siemens Energy, MAN Energy Solutions, Rio Tinto, Cargill, DP World, as well as Maersk, Hapag-Lloyd, NYK Line, Stolt Tankers, John Swire & Sons and Royal Caribbean.
