The first ever green methanol container ship will use only the lower-carbon fuel for its maiden voyage, Dutch supplier OCI Global has revealed.

Bashir Lebada, chief executive of OCI Methanol, told TradeWinds that AP Moller-Maersk’s 2,100-teu dual-fuel Maersk Solstice will run 100% on bio-methanol on its trip from Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in South Korea to Copenhagen in Denmark this summer.
