Pioneering the journey to net zero

Join us on our journey toward climate neutrality ­– from diesel engines with exhaust gas aftertreatment and gas engines to their use with sustainable fuels and hybrid systems to methanol engines and fuel cell systems. With mtu NautIQ, this also includes our ship automation products – complete propulsion and control solutions from the bridge to the propeller.

Our way to green shipping

How does shipping go green?

The maritime world wants – and needs – to get greener. This is more than an outworking of the Paris Climate Accord – it's also the stated aspiration of many shipping companies, shipyard operators and skippers. But what waters have to be navigated to get there? Which e-fuels are set to win the race?  When will these be available in sufficient quantity?  

Rolls-Royce invests in methanol technology for climate-friendly shipping

Rolls-Royce Power Systems is focusing on methanol as a fuel for climate-friendly shipping: The company is currently working on  mtu  engines for use with methanol. The new high-speed four-stroke engines, which are based on proven  mtu  technologies, are planned to be available to customers as soon as possible for use in commercial ships and yachts.

Hydrogen-based energy for the port logistics of the future

Duisburg - a city in western Germany - not only has the largest inland container terminal in Europe. A new beacon project for distributed, climate-neutral power generation is also being built here. The precise location – 'the coal islands' – is interesting, since these served as a trans-shipment site for coal all the way up to 2020. Its heaps of coal, the raw material for fossil power, were visible from all around. But these are being replaced by fuel cells and cogeneration modules powered by hydrogen to produce green electricity and heat. A better symbol for the energy turnaround would be difficult to find.

The shipping industry has to become climate-friendly. The question is not whether we're going to do something, but what we're going to do. As a pioneer in propulsion technology, we are focusing on methanol as a key marine fuel. In this way, we are offering our customers planning security, because we urgently need to create concrete solutions together in order to achieve the climate targets.
