This project aims to use converted maritime tankers for floating fuel storage which will replace a land-based system that is vulnerable to sea level rise and more severe meteorological events exacerbated by climate change. Used tankers will be retrofitted by the Marshalls Energy Company (MEC) in accordance with industry best practices. They may also be embellished by renewable energy (e.g., solar, wind, wave, and/or tidal energy conversion systems) to support the charging of electric/hybrid boats and to produce hydrogen, ammonia, and other high-value chemicals which can be sold into existing markets.
