The CMA CGM Group & the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore on 22 June 2022 inked a Memorandum of Understanding to initiate collaboration on the development of capabilities and solutions across maritime decarbonisation, digitalisation and innovation. The MoU also seeks to prime for a future-ready maritime workforce through training and skills development. To accelerate maritime decarbonisation, the two parties will explore the use of zero and low-carbon marine fuels such as e-methanol, e-methane and biofuels for commercial shipping. Research on technologies such as carbon capture solutions is another objective of the MOU. As CMA CGM advances to be a net zero carbon company by 2050, and diversifies its energy mix, the Group recently ordered another 10 dual fuel LNG-powered vessels and 6 dual fuel methanol-powered vessels. Three of these LNG vessels, which will also be e-methane ready, will be registered under the Singapore flag. Such efforts to position the Singapore Registry of Ships for a low-carbon future reaffirm Singapore’s commitment towards decarbonization of the maritime industry.The CMA CGM Group's e-methane ready fleet currently counts 29 vessels in service and will have a total of 77 by 2026.
