Green Feeding from Denmark
The shipping industry’s ageing and polluting feeder fleet is in need of an emissions angel. In 2005, 35% of Sulphur deposition in coastal areas originated from international shipping while 20% of Nitrogen deposits in coastal areas came from ships, according to the same report (Main Report Shipping, 2013). Danish-led initiative, Green Ship of the Future (GSF), set out to change this, undertaking the Regional ECOFeeder project in 2016 to inspire a “responsible” renewal of the feeder fleet.
Air lubrication has also been included in the design, utilising corporate partner Silverstream Technologies to provide a solution tailored to the vessel.
