Maersk and CMA CGM subsidiary ANL have given their backing for a project to develop green methanol bunkering in Melbourne, Australia.

The two liner giants are among seven organisations that have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore the commercial feasibility of such a move.

Other partners include the Port of Melbourne, Svitzer, Stolthaven Terminals and domestic renewable energy companies HAMR Energy and ABEL Energy.
