DP World Jebel Ali receives Ane Maersk

Maersk's green methanol vessel calls at DP World

A.P. Moller-Maersk’s (Maersk) green methanol vessel, Ane Maersk, has arrived in Dubai for the first time and was greeted by DP World at Jebel Ali.

Ane Maersk, serving the AE7 string that connects Asia and Europe, arrived in the UAE as part of its rotation, which began in Hamburg, Germany and included stops in Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Gulf nations.

According to Maersk, the ship will continue sailing to ports in China and Asia after finishing cargo operations in Dubai.

Christopher Cook, Managing Director, Maersk UAE, Oman and Qatar, said: “It is truly a great moment to witness the arrival of Ane Maersk at DP World, Jebel Ali. This is an important milestone for Maersk in our journey to decarbonise ocean transportation.

“Ane Maersk represents our ambitions towards sustainability and innovation. We are also fully aware that we cannot bring about the green transition all by ourselves. It requires collaboration from the entire ecosystem, including our customers, our partners, the infrastructure, regulators and other stakeholders.”

Abdulla Bin Damithan, CEO and Managing Director of DP World GCC, stated: “We are proud to welcome the Ane Maersk to Jebel Ali, whose arrival highlights the green shift underway in our industry. It is a flagship for sustainability that mirrors our own carbon reduction ambitions at DP World.

“We are committed to decarbonising global trade and are taking action to support the transition, from electrifying our terminals to using smart technology. The journey to net zero requires the involvement of every stakeholder in the supply chain, and we are proud to be working alongside dedicated partners like Maersk.”

Jebel Ali Port reportedly serves as a worldwide commerce hub, connecting over 180 shipping lines and providing access to over 3.5 billion customers.

Ane Maersk, equipped with a dual-fuel engine capable of running on green methanol, is the first of 18 big vessels bought by Maersk to join its fleet in 2024 and 2025.
