Clean Shipping Finance and Expertise

Our mission: Accelerating zero-emission projects in the marine world.

Transport Transformation is proudly unlocking capital for sustainable transport solutions!

The marine industry has started to go electric and technology  is rapidly moving ahead towards larger and larger vessels.

We consult for rapid launch of electric propulsion projects and provide the financial solutions to achieve ambitious goals.

Industry News :

[15.09.2020] European Parliament votes in favour of including GHG emissions from the maritime sector in the EU’s Carbon Emission Trading System from 2022. This affects almost 12,000 ships. BP Energy Outlook 2020 projects a Carbon price of 100 USD/ton for 2030.
[04.06.2020] Aeroe/Denmark: OPEX of an all-electric ferry is 24% lower compared with a new Diesel ferry: This is a result from 10 months evaluation period with all-electric ferry “Ellen”, 60m long/930 tons on its 22 nm route. CAPEX with infrastructure is about 18% higher.
[20.07.19] Sweden: Full electric ferry E/S Movitz operating in central Stockholm is utilising new charging technology, allowing to be fully charged within 10 minutes with up to 500kW charging power.
[31.07.19] London: All new ships ordered from 2025 and aimed for UK waters must be equipped with zero emission technology as part of a new Clean Maritime Plan announced this month.
[February 2020| Romania: Hull of Yara Birkeland launched. This will be the world’s first zero-emission and autonomous container ship for short distances. It will reduce diesel-powered truck haulage by 40,000 journeys a year.
[20.05.2020] Tokyo/Japan: Japan to build world’s first all-electric tanker for operations on Tokyo Bay. Gross tonnage 500t
[13.05.19] European innovation project FLAGSHIPS has been awarded 5 Million Euros from the EU to deploy two commercially operated zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell vessels in France and Norway.
[12.06.2020] A new study published by BMC Energy finds: Building new zero-emission ships may not be enough for shipping to play its part in keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees. Improving efficiency of the existing fleet is essential.

Accelerate Change

Define deadlines! We are here to accelerate your zero-emission projects, pin down financial implications and bring in deep technical expertise.

TT’s financial solutions support rapid transformation to propulsion with electric motors and zero emission operations on the water.

Even when the organization is not in the position to do significant investments – our tailored leasing packages make world class electric propulsion technology accessible.

Our Clients gain quick, low-risk access to economic, zero-emission marine transport solutions. Impact Investors can engage in a new high-growth market. Manufacturers increase their market potential. Governments reach ambitious emission reduction targets.

Cut Costs

Operational costs of commercially operated marine combustion engines are in general dominated by fuel costs. Eliminating fuel costs is changing the game!

For small vessels, such as water taxies or work boats, the share of fuel costs can be as high as 75-90% – depending on local prices and use profile.

Going electric can be more cost effective but the electric systems require significant investments first. This is where Transport Transformation can help with independent technical expertise and leasing packages. These financial solutions support the rapid transformation to sustainable electric mobility and keep the client free of technological risks.

With no upfront capital invest, this can be an elegant solution to reduce the total cost of operation. Converting  an existing vessel to electric propulsion is one solution. The optional introduction of a completely new vessel with optimized hydrodynamic efficiency may help to further optimize the business case.

Cut Emissions

Electric marine propulsion systems emit no harmful exhaust gases or carbon dioxide during use. A meaningful step towards the zero-emission world!

For small and medium sized vessels, an over-all reduction of the carbon footprint by 60-70% is common with regular electric grid battery-charging. A step further, renewable energy supply allows for 100% carbon-free e-mobility!

Compliance with ambitions emission reduction targets becomes feasible.

Not only as a side effect, many users of electrically operated vessels are benefiting from the cleanness and luxurious quietness of electric motors.
