Carbon credits underpin efficiency device retrofit project
A new consultancy project led by Maersk’s green tech subsidiary Njord is seeking to use carbon credits to improve the business case for investments in fuel efficiency technologies for operating assets.
The project will see Njord and maritime consulting firm Marsoft collaborate in the selection and verification of fuel-saving technologies for Greenheart, a subsidiary of Hayfin Capital Management.
As part of the partnership, Njord will design a bespoke package of fuel-saving technologies on, initially, four Greenheart-owned vessels, to achieve fuel and emission cuts of between seven and 16 per cent per vessel. Marsoft will quantify and certify the CO2 savings through carbon credits, ensuring Greenheart will optimise the financial value of the fuel savings.
