Maersk Tankers, Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Det Norske Veritas (DNV) have agreed to collaborate on the design and risk assessment of tankers for shipping CO2.

Maersk said the new vessels will collect CO2 from emission sources such as coal-fired power plants, believed to be a cost-effective way to address environmental issues.

Denmark-based Maersk and South Korean HHI have prepared the initial blueprints to build the ships.

Norway’s DNV will provide feasibility studies and risk identification so that the vessels meet requirements for specific carbon capture and storage.
