Maersk, Orsted and other Danish companies to produce sustainable fuels on a large scale

Several major Danish firms, including Orsted and Moller-Maersk, have entered into a partnership to produce sustainable fuels on an industrial scale. The other members include Copenhagen Airports, DSV Panalpina, DFDS and Scandinavian airline SAS. The goal of the partnership is to establish a large facility that will provide fuels for maritime, air and road transport in the Copenhagen area. The companies shared that a hydrogen and e-fuel production site will be commissioned by 2023 and fully scaled up by 2030, generating over 250,000 metric tonnes of fuel annually. It is envisaged that the project’s electrolyser will be powered by offshore wind installations. The Danish project will provide hydrogen for public buses as well as trucks managed by DSV Panalpina; renewable methanol for ships operated by Moller-Maersk; and e-kerosene for SAS planes and other air transport flying from Copenhagen airport.
