Plotting the Course for a Decarbonized Global Maritime Industry with Bo Cerup-Simonsen of MMMCZCS

January 24, 2023


On this episode of EAH, we sat down with Dr. Bo Cerup-Simonsen, Chief Executive Officer of the Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping. Bo holds a PHD in Naval Architecture and Mechanical Engineering and spent seven years as a research engineer at MIT. 

During his career, he has been responsible hundreds of leading-edge newbuilding, engineering, and technology projects, which have significantly contributed to safety, efficiency and competitiveness within shipping.

Bo was VP, Head of Newbuilding Strategy and Portfolio at Royal Caribbean Cruises, Director of the Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre, and VP, Head of Maersk Maritime Technology.

Bo also headed the Maritime Technical Consultancy of Det Norske Veritas (DNV, now DNVGL). 

The Center is a not-for-profit, independent research and development organization accelerating the transition towards a net-zero future for the maritime industry. With their partners across the shipping and energy industries, they drive and facilitate the development and implementation of new pathways and technology solutions and standards required for systemic and regulatory change. 

Bo explains the Center’s work and we discuss decarbonization of shipping using hydrogen derived green fuels.
