LEADING THE WAY
In UECC we focus on making positive changes that deliver better environmental standards and innovative solutions for the maritime industry, our vessels and our customers
We are the leading provider of short sea ro-ro transportation in Europe. With leadership comes responsibility. In UECC we care about the environment and the responsibility our industry has to future generations.
We work hard every day to reduce our environmental footprint. Over the last five years we have demonstrated our commitment to this cause with a series of initiatives that have delivered real results. We have reduced our fleet’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 19.7% since 2010, replaced harmful materials and recycled older vessels.
We believe that by thinking big we can find new solutions to old problems – delivering not just better environmental standards, but also better service to our customers.
Our solution is investing in bigger and more sustainable vessels. Large, modern and more efficient vessels serve both the environment and our customers’ business interests. They provide economies of scale, driving down the cost per unit delivered, while the added volumes results in fewer total voyages and drastically reduced emissions.
In 2016, we took delivery of two dual fuel LNG pure car and truck carriers with 1A super Finnish/Swedish ice class. The vessels are the largest dual fuel vessels in the world with the capacity to carry 4 000 car equivalent units.
LNG is recognized as the cleanest and most environmentally friendly fuel suitable for marine transport. Using LNG significantly reduces CO2 and NOx emissions, as well as eliminating SOx and particulate emissions.
