Ulsan Port joins DNV’s decarbonization network to spearhead green efforts

March 26 ------ Ulsan Port has become a member of DNV Korea’s decarbonization network, reaffirming its pledge to environmentally friendly shipping practices. The network unites technical executives and managers from various stakeholders in Korea’s maritime industry. It consists of two groups: one comprises nine major Korean shipyards while the other encompasses a diverse range of participants, including shipowners, managers, charterers, banks and research institutions (in total 17).


Ulsan Port Authority, one of the world’s four largest tank terminal clusters, has joined both groups, to demonstrate a significant commitment to sustainable maritime practices and intent to collaborate within DNV Korea’s Decarbonization Network. “Joining DNV Korea’s Decarbonization Network is a testament to our commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable shipping. In this partnership with industry leaders, we will be at the forefront of building a global green ship fuel and supply chain,” Soon-yo Jeong, Vice President at Ulsan Port Authority, stated.


“We welcome Ulsan Port to our network. Their expertise and commitment to sustainability bring invaluable contributions to our collective efforts in driving positive change within the industry,” Vidar Dolonen, DNV Regional Manager, Korea & Japan, added.


To remind, Ane Maersk, the world’s first large methanol dual-fuel containership, has completed its first ship-to-ship (STS) green methanol bunkering at Ulsan Port. Earlier on, Ulsan Port signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the international classification society Korean Register (KR) to support methanol-fueled ships and establish the South Korean port as a low-carbon energy hub.


Established in 2022, the DNV Decarbonization Network aims to assist designated decarbonization leaders in navigating upcoming challenges and sharing insights. Through regular meetings, members cultivate connections with experts in the industry, enabling them to monitor solutions and opportunities amidst technical and regulatory obstacles.
