The Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD) and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) announced today the signing of a five-year Strategic Partnership agreement.
his significant partnership aims to boost the centre’s capacity and efforts to conduct pilots and trials of low-carbon solutions to provide clear and specific pathways to decarbonisation of the global shipping industry.
This Strategic Partnership agreement with NYK formalises and strengthens our existing relations in working on low-carbon solutions for international shipping. We look forward to levelling up the engagement with NYK to further accelerate collective efforts towards shipping’s decarbonisation.
… said Professor Lynn Loo, CEO of the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation
NYK was a partner in the GCMD-commissioned ammonia bunkering completed in April. Furthermore, for GCMD’s pilot on developing an assurance framework for drop-in biofuels, NYK trialled VLSFO (B24) on board Lycaste Peace in February 2023.
Through the partnership, I am looking forward to cooperating with GCMD and all its partners to realize the widespread social implementation of various decarbonisation solutions in our industry.
… said said Takaya Soga, President and CEO of NYK.
To remind, last week GCMD joined Momentum for the Clean Energy Marine Hubs (CEM Hubs) initiative which aims to advance the production, transport and use of low-carbon fuels by shipping.
