Rotterdam based Value Maritime has secured a contract from shipping operator BG Freight Line (see previous story) to install its Filtree and carbon capture system on two feeder vessels, BG Onyx and BG Ruby.
Chartered from German shipowner HS Schiffahrt, these ships are scheduled to be retrofitted in the summer.
Upon completion of the upgrades, the ships will continue to sail in North-West Europe (to include ‘feeder’ links to UK and Ireland)
They will emit less carbon and use Value Maritime outlets across the region to reuse carbon on land.
Value Maritime’s Filtree includes a Clean-Loop system and Carbon Capture feature.
