Great to see the B9 shipping project moving ahead strongly, with other vessels and designs such as the Ecoliner coming through too. We need working examples of these, and other ships, proving that the economics are there - routing, ownership structures, cargo selection and financing are going to be critical issues alongside the technical challenges.
Our Greenheart project, is building much smaller vessels, in the 75-100 DWT range, where the fuel costs per ton/mile are high. Low volume routes with long distances between ports, limited infrastructure and high fuel prices has led us to develop a South Pacific pilot, we plan for that to expand and incorporate B9 ships and others in a low carbon, sustainable shipping future for the region.
