Danish shipping giant AP Moller-Maersk has inked supply deals with six companies to boost the global production capacity of green methanol.

The strategic partnerships will enable Maersk to source 730,000 tonnes of green methanol per year by end of 2025, the company said.

That reaches “well beyond” the quantity of green methanol needed to fuel the 12 neo-panamax container ships that the company has ordered, the liner operator said.
