RINA, a leading multinational company in the inspection, certification, ship classification, and engineering consultancy sectors, has granted Kindon New Energy Technology (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. an Approval in Principle (AiP) for its pioneering green methanol offshore production platform solution. This platform utilizes renewable CO2 and green hydrogen generated from wind power electrolysis technology to produce methanol entirely offshore.

Kindon New Energy’s CEO, Wenbo Wang, highlighted the importance of this groundbreaking concept as it offers a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels while contributing to global efforts to reduce carbon emissions. The offshore platform is designed to produce 0.1 million metric tonnes per annum (MTPA) of green methanol using green hydrogen synthesized from renewable CO2 captured through Direct Air Capture (DAC) and sustainable electricity sourced from offshore wind farms.

Luigi Mattera, Greater China Marine Operations Director at RINA, emphasized the significance of supporting decarbonization technologies and utilizing DAC technology in producing green methanol offshore. This AiP confirms that the methanol produced meets the highest sustainability standards by utilizing renewable resources and innovative processes.

RINA expressed their satisfaction with awarding Kindon New Energy the AiP for their innovative production platform, underscoring its crucial role in promoting sustainable and environmentally friendly practices in the marine and offshore industries.
