New Initiative for Climate-Smart Shipping Launched in Sweden


Electromobility for Shipping is the name of a new collaboration between six actors with the aim to increase the electrification of shipping.

Swedish ferry company Stena AB, the Swedish Shipowners’ Association, ABB Sweden AB, ABB Marine Oy, research institute RISE and battery company Northvolt have decided to collaborate for a more sustainable future within shipping.

“There is a lot going on concerning battery on ships and we believe that research and development are crucial for finding the best. By joining forces between the research community and the maritime sector, we have great opportunities for the future,” Dan Sten Olsson, CEO of Stena AB, commented.

As informed, the organizations intend to jointly contribute to climate-smart shipping, international competitiveness and increased export opportunities for green technologies.
