Dubai-based Zaitoun Green Shipping (ZGS) is to lead a consortium aiming to create a new generation of container ship with maximised levels of efficiency in areas such as operations, cargo management, and energy usage.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The other six companies making up the consortium include Wärtsilä, MacGregor Finland Oy (MCG), Carina Solutions (C4), Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD), Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Equipment (MHI-MME), and Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT).

“There is a pressing need to address inefficiencies and to improve business practices in the shipping industry,” said Stein Thorsager, sales director for merchant & gas carriers at Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.

“A major challenge is that the suboptimal choice and utilisation of onboard systems are hindering performance and hence, therefore, also profitability. This is an area we shall be focusing on.”

The parties have agreed to establish a consortium team where each member company will contribute to the development and construction of a state-of-the-art container ship that is best in class in each of their areas of expertise.{/mprestriction}
