MOL Joins Tokyo Bay eSG 2023 Priority Project- Wind Hunter, Zero-emission Project Using Wind Power and Hydrogen, Will Be Key Element

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President & CEO: Takeshi Hashimoto) today announced that the Wind Hunter Project (Note 1), MOL’s zero-emission project utilizing wind power and hydrogen, has been selected as a cutting-edge renewable energy project under the “Tokyo Bay eSG Priority Project” (Note 2) for fiscal year 2023.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government is promoting a sustainable city concept that blends “nature” and “convenience” in the Tokyo Bay Area for the next 50 to 100 years. The eSG project aims to realize this concept by utilizing the vast “land, sea, and air” field of the central breakwater area to introduce a variety of cutting-edge technologies to society and create innovations in renewable energy.

MOL will utilize Wind Hunter technology research and development to promote the utilization of hydrogen, with partners (Note 3) and an experimental vessel in Tokyo Bay and areas, such as onboard green hydrogen production using wind as a renewable energy source, onboard hydrogen storage via a hydrogen carrier, transporting to Outer Central Breakwater Reclamation Area of Tokyo Metropolitan Government, onshore supply of hydrogen and usage of hydrogen at shore.

MOL has set the goal of achieving net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050 in line with the “MOL Group Environmental Vision 2.2,” and with the aim to create a sustainable world, it will pursue renewable energy business and the establishment of a clean energy supply chain to contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions not only from its own operations but also from society as a whole.
