Getting to Zero Coalition 2030

We are signatories of Getting to Zero Coalition, an initiative of the Global Maritime Forum that aims to accelerate the decarbonization of maritime transport, with the development and deployment of commercially viable, zero-emission ships in deep waters by 2030, towards full decarbonization by 2050.

Antifouling paint on vessels

Antifouling paint is manufactured by fusing active silicone hydrogel with a small percentage of biocide. With it, the ship’s hull offers less friction and less resistance to advancement. This increases energy efficiency and reduces fossil fuel consumption, thus reducing vessels’ energy consumption.

PBCF – Propeller Boss Cap Fins

We are pioneers in investing in PBCF, which consists of changing the propeller hub to reduce or eliminate the vortex caused at the ship’s stern, improving performance, and optimizing the power applied to the propulsion shaft. In other words, the action generates savings of up to 5% in fuel consumption and an equivalent reduction in CO2 emissions – which helps to slow down some climate change, improves air quality, and helps preserve ecosystems, among other benefits.

Solar panels on vessels

We use a solar panel system that reduces fuel consumption on barges at anchor, generating greater efficiency and operational comfort and reducing the use of fossil fuels. This initiative is also a pioneer in cabotage in the country.
