ZESTAs serves as a nexus for industry associations and technology providers to exchange insights, foster partnerships, and address challenges. By harnessing collective expertise and resources, ZESTAs is said to play an important role in propelling innovation and collaboration throughout the maritime and energy supply chain.

“Equally as important as our commitment to customer satisfaction, is our commitment to sustainable practices and innovation. This means we strive to remain at the forefront of the latest innovation on absolute-zero emissions shipping technologies by our actions and support of ZESTAs initiatives,” Kari-Pekka Laaksonen, Samskip CEO, said.

“We warmly welcome Samskip to the ZESTAs family of companies committed to having a net positive impact,” Madadh MacLaine, Secretary-General at ZESTAs, commented.

“Samskip has demonstrated strong leadership with their Liquid Hydrogen container vessel, currently in build at Cochin Shipyard in India, making an absolute zero emissions supply chain a reality in the North Sea. Samskip is already partnering with ZESTAs members, Chart Industries and Air Liquide to name a few. ZESTAs will leverage these established collaborations as foundational building blocks to our Absolute Zero Emissions Ecosystems.”

As a member of ZESTAs, Samskip gains access to networking opportunities, industry insights, participation in collaborative initiatives such as the ShipZERO program and a voice at the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
