SITC International has been committed to green transformation for years, and by using new energy it has reduced its sulphur dioxide emissions by more than 80%. The company is also gradually improving its extensive fleet. As well as adopting green vessels with optimised performance and lower overall fuel consumption, it has invested in developing vessels that use new energy in order to make shipping less energy-intensive and more environmentally friendly.
In addition, to reduce water consumption and the need to obtain freshwater from external sources while sailing, the vessels desalinate seawater for use as the main source of fresh water. The desalinated seawater is stored in dedicated tanks for a freshwater reserve. The vessels also collect rainwater for cleaning. In 2021, the company obtained 34,113 cubic metres of freshwater by desalinating sea water – an increase of 8,213 tons since 2020.
