DEME reduces the emissions of its fleet
Between now and 2030, DEME is aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% compared to the reference year 2008 set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), and to become a climate-neutral company by 2050. Given the fact that 90% of greenhouse gas emissions can be attributed to the fuel consumption of vessels, DEME is pursuing a multi-year investment plan aimed at supplying its fleet with the most advanced technology in the field through the use of low-emission fuels, such as LNG, bio-diesel and future ecological fuels. DEME is also continuously improving the energy efficiency of its entire fleet through various technological measures, such as residual gas heat recovery systems when using electrical energy. Emphasis is also placed on the optimization of processes, and on improving productivity. Finally, in 2020 DEME has also focused on improving the recording of energy data, on setting up an integrated data structure, and on developing the necessary tools for monitoring.
