Maritime transport could be responsible for around 17 % of global greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
To avoid this scenario, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) aims to reduce GHG emissions from shipping by at least 50% by 2050. This commitment challenges the habits of an entire industry that will need to take drastic measures to reduce its ecological footprint, following the example of NEOLINE.
Its future vessel, the Neoliner, is a ro-ro sailing cargo ship with a sail-powered main propulsion system. The transatlantic route operated by NEOLINE will focus on a niche market, offering new capacities in terms of type of cargo (rolling and non-standard freight) and destination.
