Dubai: A.P. Moller - Maersk’s (Maersk) first large vessel that can run on green methanol1 arrived in Dubai, UAE for the very first time and was welcomed by DP World at Jebel Ali. Ane Maersk underscores Maersk's ambition to achieve Net-Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040.

Serving the AE7 string, which connects Asia and Europe, Ane Maersk arrived in the UAE on her rotation, beginning in Hamburg in Germany and covering several ports in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Gulf countries.

It is truly a great moment to witness the arrival of Ane Maersk at DP World, Jebel Ali. This is an important milestone for Maersk in our journey to decarbonise ocean transportation. Ane Maersk represents our ambitions towards sustainability and innovation. We are also fully aware that we cannot bring about the green transition all by ourselves. It requires collaboration from the entire ecosystem, including our customers, our partners, the infrastructure, regulators and other stakeholders.

As the biggest port in the Middle East and the 10th busiest in the world, Jebel Ali Port is a global trade hub that provides connectivity to over 180 shipping lines and access to more than 3.5 billion consumers.

Equipped with a state-of-the-art dual-fuel engine that is capable of running on green methanol, Ane Maersk is the first of the 18 large vessels ordered by Maersk that will be added to Maersk’s fleet during 2024 and 2025. The vessels in the new series have an industry-first innovative design with the bridge and accommodation placed at the very front of the vessel, allowing more cargo to be carried and reducing the consumption per container.

During Ane Maersk’s first call at Jebel Ali, Danish Consul-General in the UAE H.E. Joakim Larsen, DP World GCC CEO and Managing Director, Abdulla Bin Damithan, several top customers and partners for Maersk had the opportunity to get onboard the vessel. They got a full tour of the vessel with in-depth information about the modern engine and the new innovative design.
