Panacea update today
MSK line is aiming to run the container with biofuel in two years. It is working on a system called dual-propulsion system which can handle different form of propulsion and run on conversional bunker fuel and natural gas.
The new ship will be small vessel running on biomethanol...
MSK is not the only carrier in industry to proceed the "green fuel". ONE (Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd) also tried a shipment across the Atlantic this month that applied a mixture of cooking oil and bunker fuel.
It is a trend today for carrier to go "green" but still challenging to power the large vessel with non-traditional energy to work with bigger engine.
Currently, each vessel can hold more than 20,000 containers and travel thousands of miles.
