RINA, a leading global maritime company that specializes in ship inspection, certification, classification, and engineering consulting, has awarded Kindon New Energy Technology (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. approval in principle (AiP) for its revolutionary offshore green methanol production platform solution. This platform uses renewable CO2 and green hydrogen generated by wind energy electrolysis technology to produce methanol entirely offshore.

Luigi Mattera, Director of Greater China Marine Operations at RINA, emphasized the importance of supporting decarbonization technologies and highlighted the importance of using direct air capture (DAC) technology for the production of green methanol at sea. This AiP certifies that the methanol produced adheres to the highest standards of sustainability, using renewable sources and innovative processes.

CEO of Kindon New Energy, Wenbo Wang, explained that the production process involves the use of green hydrogen, renewable CO2 captured through DAC and sustainable electricity for methanol synthesis. This concept offers a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, contributing to global efforts to reduce carbon emissions.

The offshore production platform developed by Kindon New Energy is designed to produce 0.1 million metric tons per annum (MTPA) of green methanol. Methanol synthesis processes take place entirely on the platform, with electricity needs being met by green energy produced from offshore wind farms. The platform is also designed to enable future access to additional sources of green CO2 or CO2 derived from biomass.

RINA expressed its satisfaction that Kindon New Energy was awarded the AiP for their innovative production platform, highlighting the platform’s role in promoting sustainable and environmentally friendly practices in the marine and offshore industry.

In conclusion, RINA’s awarding of Kindon New Energy Technology (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd.’s approval in principle for its revolutionary offshore green methanol production platform solution marks a significant step towards reducing carbon emissions in the maritime industry through innovative technologies that promote sustainability and environmental friendliness.
