Singapore’s X-Press Feeders is trying out carbon capture and storage on two more container ships.

Value Maritime will supply the emissions-reduction kits for the 868-teu Atlantis A (built 2007) and 1,036-teu X-Press Elbe (built 2010).

Retrofitting is expected to be done in late summer.

This will mean a 20% emissions reduction when the vessels resume trading in north-western Europe, Netherlands-based Value Maritime said.
