We will restore our oceans
…through the creation of new sustainable businesses
Grieg Edge is the dedicated innovation
unit within the Grieg Maritime Group
Green businesses to meet the customers’ needs
Shipping has prided itself on being the most environmentally friendly way of transporting cargo. It is time to take it further. Industry disruption, climate change and shifts in customer behaviour demand a new approach.
In Grieg Edge, we aim to identify and develop new business opportunities within shipping and related maritime segments – always with sustainability as a requirement. We aim to discover, understand and ultimately solve customer problems – alone or together with partners. And we intend to use the most efficient tools to design sustainable solutions for a new tomorrow.
Business segments in focus
Even with traditional fuels, seaborne transportation is the most environmentally way of transporting goods. We believe the short sea segment will be where shipping first becomes emission free.
To meet our climate goals, we need more non-GHG emission energy. With our experience in industrial shipping and transport of wind turbines, we believe in offshore wind as a significant supplier of power in the future.
Fuels for ships will change in the years to come. There are possibilities in wind, solar, hydrogen, ammonia and more. New fuels will demand new ways of producing, storing and distributing.
We have pledged to work to restore our oceans. We need to fix the plastics problem. We need to avoid heating of the oceans. We need to ensure biodiversity. There are many challenges – but we are confident we can meet them.
Whats new in Grieg Edge
Grieg Edge’s projected green ammonia fueled tanker got Approval in Principle by DNV last Friday. The next steps are developing the market and detailing the ship’s design.
The projected green ammonia fuelled ammonia-tanker has earned partners Wärtilä and Grieg Edge unexpected but welcome recognition from “Popular Science” magazine.
Grieg Edge has entered a contract with award-winning naval architect company LMG Marin to design the MS Green Ammonia. We expect a concept design to be finalised by the first half of 2022.
We are a multidisciplinary team with broad experience in shipping, finance, technology, and startups. The Edge team is based in Bergen and Oslo, Norway.
