OCI Hyfuels to supply X-Press Feeders with green methanol in Rotterdam

OCI Hyfuels will supply X-Press Feeders with green methanol in the Port of Rotterdam from 2024 – marking its second green methanol sale to the maritime sector in just under a month.

OCI Global and X-Press Feeders described it as a “milestone agreement” marking the first green methanol deal with a feeder container carrier. X-Press Feeders will be the first common feeder operator with methanol fuelled vessels on European waters. The partnership will create an end-to-end solution for global shipping companies in European ports.

Earlier this year OCI announced its partnership with Unibarge to retrofit the first methanol powered bunker barge which will be deployed at the Port of Rotterdam. OCI will work with Unibarge to fuel X-Press Feeders’ feeder ships ensuring the decarbonisation of another link in the chain.

The announcement comes after the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) announced new global decarbonisation targets for the maritime industry and its revised strategy for the industry to
reach net zero ‘by or around 2050’.
