Danaos managed to meet IMO 2030 carbon target 11 years ahead
Greek container owner Danaos Corporation succeeded in meeting IMO 2030 carbon emission goals 11 years ahead of schedule.
Investing in a sustainable shipping future, Danaos follows its counterparts including the Taiwanese shipping company Yang Ming and the French shipping group CMA CGM, which have already surpassed the greenhouse gas emission goal for 2030.
Danaos announced back in 2018 a scrubber installation project covering a range of the company's vessels to comply with the latest sulphur limit law that came into force in January 2020.
The most recent scrubber installation has been completed on M / V Hyundai Ambition, a 13,082 TEU container ship, Danaos said three weeks ago on LinkedIn.
Furthermore, the organization has reduced carbon emissions through fuel efficiency optimisation thanks to innovative technologies such as electronically controlled engines.
The shipping company has partnered with the founders of the Poseidon Principles — a new global framework for responsible ship financing that will help to stimulate the decarbonisation of shipping in line with the IMO 's climate objectives.
“Last year, we were anticipating a significant drive into green technology and investments as the new sulphur fuel regulations were set to come into force. The transition to new sulphur fuels has gone relatively smoothly, and we have not experienced any incidents related to fuel quality and availability,” John Coustas, President & CEO of Danaos said.
Danaos Corporation has a fleet of 63 container vessels ranging from 2,200 to 13,100 TEUs, including five ships purchased by Gemini Shipholdings Corporation, based on the company website data.
