MV Empire, which is a Baltic Max feeder from the PW-1400 series, has been part of the JR Shipping fleet since 2009.

Built by the German Peene Werft shipyard, the vessel has room for 1,440 20-feet (TEU) containers, including 316 reefer containers. Thanks to her high ice class, the vessel can be deployed by container shipping lines operating in the Baltic waters throughout the year. When she was designed, the maximum permissible draught for sailing through the Kiel Canal and calling at the Baltic ports was taken into account.

Making our fleet more sustainable

Since 2021, the JR Shipping Group and Value Maritime have been intensively cooperating to meet the global challenge of making shipping more sustainable. The innovative Filtree System, developed in-house by Value Maritime engineers, can play an important role in the energy transition of our industry.

The system, suitable for both existing and new vessels, is based on a versatile technology that filters sulphur and ultra-fine particles from exhaust gas and purifies wash water. In addition, a patented CO₂ capture and storage module is integrated into the system. The CO₂ is stored in battery containers for reuse in other industries, with the carbon even being re-used to facilitate the growth of flowers and other crops. Value Maritime has set up an extensive service network to replace the batteries in the main ports. This will result in a 100% circular solution.

By the end of 2023, the majority of our fleet will be equipped with Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems.

MV Empire is equipped with a Filtree system and Carbon Capture module.

If you want to know more about the Filtree and carbon capture systems, you can watch Value maritime their video about CO2 Capture and Storage onboard a vessel.
