The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping is working with Maersk Broker Advisory Services and McKinsey & Company to offer data-based advisory services on decarbonisation pathways.

A new service called ‘Fleet Decarbonization Optimizer’ combines the partners’ industry knowledge and techno-economic analytical capabilities to model bespoke decarbonisation pathways, taking data points like fleet size, fleet age, vessel specifics and types of operations into consideration.

Announcing the service, the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center noted that uncertainty around future fuels and technologies, a lack of global standards and regulation and limited visibility on timelines makes the investment case challenging. The goal of the advisory service is to de-risk fleet decarbonisation plans by advising on retrofits of energy efficiency technologies to reduce future emissions and energy demand, a retirement schedule of legacy vessels for continued fleet optimisation, and alternative fuel and propulsion options for newbuilds.

Maersk Broker Advisory Services and McKinsey & Company announced the partnership in July 2021 and since then the Center has participated in a pilot project to validate the concept and collaboration model.  The three parties have now formalised the agreement and will start offering the services in the market immediately. 

Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO of the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, commented on the initiative: ‘The partnership with Maersk Broker Advisory Services and McKinsey can help accelerate the transition by offering bespoke, data-based advice on viable ways forward.

‘This new way of activating and leveraging our publicly available tools, our modelling skills and knowledge ensures close interaction with the shipping industry and will inform our research and activities going forward as we learn even more about the concrete, practical challenges the shipping companies face.’

Anders Hald, CEO of Maersk Broker, noted: ‘In our opinion the combined knowledge put into the Fleet Decarbonization Optimizer brings forward the best available data to the industry so companies can make well-informed investment decisions and navigate the uncertainty.

‘The Fleet Decarbonization Optimizer provides tangible solutions in an environment filled with unanswered questions on future fuels, rules, and regulations.’
