Berge Bulk, a dry bulk owner based in Singapore, announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding with marine technology leader Kongsberg Maritime (KM) to develop and boost the advancement of decarbonization technologies onboard dry bulk cargo vessels.

Leading the international deep-sea dry bulk shipping market, Berge Bulk has set on a passionate environmental program that has given rise to ships like Berge Logan, the most energy-efficient bulk carrier in the world. Keeping in line with the same, Berge Bulk intends to go carbon-neutral by 2025 and to have a zero-carbon ocean-going dry bulk carrier by 2030.

A program of this magnitude requires substantial technical expertise and innovation to achieve and present numerous technical, commercial, and regulatory challenges. KM is Berge Bulk's latest technology partner to aid in this challenge.

"We're proud to have been chosen by Berge Bulk to accelerate its journey towards carbon-neutral operations," adds James Poulton, Senior Vice President, Kongsberg Maritime. "Together, we'll be laying down a positive marker for maritime sustainability that will inspire a literal sea change for bulk carriers and beyond."

The two elements of the joint development project include evaluating and testing emerging decarbonization technologies for use in the maritime sector, as well as integrating both emerging and existing technologies into deployable systems that can be installed on Berge Bulk's fleet of over 80 dry bulk vessels.

"Berge Bulk is actively engaged in identifying new emerging technology trends to help us reach our zero-carbon goals," adds James Marshall, CEO, Berge Bulk. "However, there are plenty of existing technologies that we can and should be leveraging today to reduce our vessel emissions now."
