ShipInsight – MSC to add Silverstream air lubrication to 30 ships

23rd September 2021

UK clean technology company Silverstream Technologies has today announced that it has secured more than 30 orders of its air lubrication technology, the Silverstream System, on existing orders of newbuild large container ships for MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company.

The order relates to a substantial portion of MSC’s newbuild pipeline, with a number of the vessels expected to be deployed on the world’s busiest trade lanes between Asia and Europe. Over the vessels’ lifecycles*, a carbon emissions reduction of 1.6 million tonnes could be achieved as a direct impact of having the System onboard. Over the same period, MSC will see an estimated fuel saving of £220m.
