NYK Lines has revealed its concepts for a low-emission container freight vessel.

The NYK Super Eco Ship 2030 will be powered by liquid natural gas fuel cells, which produce 30% less CO2 compared to other marine diesels, the company said.

The Japanese liner says it expects the ship to be in service by 2030 and that the vessel will have 31,000m2 of solar panels in addition to retractable sails.

The ship will be designed in cooperation with the Monohakobi Technology Institute, Finnish marine consultants Elomatic and Italian ship designers Garroni Progetti.

The design also features a bow-mounted bubble projector to reduce friction as the ship moves through the water.

NYK said the company expects its fleet to produce zero emissions by 2050.
