The key aim is to offer an “electric-vessel” platform to stakeholders, including shipbuilders, equipment manufacturers, ship owners, operators and cargo owners. Other objectives include: leveraging large-capacity, rechargeable batteries to provide emergency back-up power; control greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) to help combat the adverse impacts of climate change; and, finally, to “actively promote the electrification of both coastal and ocean-going vessels… to achieve the 50 percent GHG reduction target of the International Maritime Organization… the IMO wants to see annual emissions drop to half of their 2008 levels by the year 2050,” according to a statement from MOL.
