Multi-year deal to supply lubricants

Shell Marine has been awarded a multi-year contract to provide marine lubricants to cruise line operator Carnival Corp.’s global fleet of 89 ships.

Carnival said it will also offset the carbon dioxide emissions from the marine lubricants it purchases from Shell, through Shell’s nature-based carbon credits.

“Shell Marine is working with our customers to help the shipping sector decarbonize,” said Joris van Brussel, general manager, Shell Marine. “This is in line with Shell’s ambition to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner, in step with society and our customers. Through our marine lubricants and integrated service offering which includes technical and digital services, we’re helping customers like Carnival optimize engine efficiency, thus reducing a ship’s environmental impact.”

Michael T. Mcnamara, vice president Global Fuel Sourcing, Carnival, said addressing climate change is a top priority for the company and it is committed to delivering a cleaner, more efficient and sustainable cruise experience.

“Aligning the supply chain with our decarbonization strategy was a key consideration and Shell’s carbon-neutral marine lubricants support our efforts to reduce our carbon emission by 40% by 2030,” Mcnamara said. “We have made significant progress and welcome this initiative from Shell Marine on our decarbonization journey.”
