These vessels reduce CO2 emissions by 35% per container moved, compared to industry average on the Asia-Europe trade.

Smart transport

Different modes of transport have different climate impact. Carbon distance reflects the difference in climate impact among different modes of transport between two locations. FACT: Maersk StarFlower™ makes it possible to transport cut flowers by sea rather than by air, cutting the relevant CO2 emissions by 98%.

Triple-E: Smart transport

Illustration: Grams of CO2 emitted by transporting 1 ton of goods 1 km.

A Triple-E class vessel is equipped with a waste heat recovery system, saving up to 10% of main engine power. This equals the average annual electrical consumption of 5,000 European households.

The right mix

The Triple-E hull design, energy-efficient engine-type and waste-heat recovery system, which uses exhaust gas to produce additional energy, combine to create an unmatched energy efficient class of vessel. FACT: The Waste-Heat Recovery System uses the energy in the hot exhaust gas to produce extra energy for propulsion. This allows the Triple-E class vessel to use a smaller and less energy-consuming main engine.
