For oceangoing giants Capital and Star Bulk participation in the ShipFC-project is a golden opportunity to share first-hand experiences from their own operations with researchers and developers aiming for a greener maritime industry.
— Joining the ShipFC project fits perfectly with our company strategy, where the goal is low, and eventually, a zero-emissions fleet, says Vermund Hjelland, Vice President Technology and Development in Eidesvik AS.
Ship FC partner Sustainable Energy is well underway with the construction of the world’s first test centre for green energy carriers.
