H-Line Shipping, a maritime cargo transport company, donates to Korea Maritime and Ocean University- and is expected to save approximately 70 million won per year.

H-Line Shipping Co., Ltd. (CEO Seo Myeong-Deuk), a maritime cargo transportation company, donated a power-saving device that can save about 70 million won in fuel consumption every year to Korea Maritime and Ocean University (President Jeong Do-hee). It is worth 120 million won. The two places held a donation ceremony in the policy conference room of Korea Maritime and Ocean University on July 5.

Seong-Kwon Choi, CEO of ENForce, is second from the right.

The device is ‘Force’, developed by ENPOSS (Missionary Choi Seong-Kwon), which is conducting a power-saving campaign for Korean churches with Kookmin Ilbo- and reduces electricity bills by an average of 10%. Usually, they are installed in buildings to reduce electrical resistance and thus reduce the amount of power used. By installing it on a ship and reducing the amount of power used, oil, which is the fuel used to generate electricity, can be saved. This means practicing carbon neutrality, a global issue, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The power-saving device donated this time is scheduled to be installed on the Korea Maritime and Ocean University training ship ‘Hanbada’.

H-Line Shipping CEO Seo Myung-deuk said, “We are happy to be able to help Korea Maritime and Ocean University reduce electricity costs and achieve carbon neutrality.” H Line Shipping is a company that transports raw materials and energy such as iron ore, coal, and LNG- and is expanding investments to use eco-friendly and low-carbon energy. It is the company that ranks first in employment preference among Korea Maritime and Ocean University students.

President Do Duk-Hui of Korea Maritime and Ocean University presented a plaque of appreciation to President Seo and said, “The donated power-saving device will play a big role in saving energy on the training ship,” and added, “As a university, we will repay you by nurturing excellent talent.” Korea Maritime University expects to achieve up to 10% power and oil savings through this device. In addition, through this, the university was evaluated as a university that actively responds to the energy conversion policy for ‘2050 carbon neutrality’.

Professor Lee Jin-Wook, head of the Hanbadaho Institute, said, “It is estimated that we will reduce more than 5% of fuel consumption, which is approximately 70 million won per year,” and added, “Based on the results, we will actively practice carbon neutrality by installing power saving devices.”

Seong-Kwon Choi, CEO of ENPOSS, who participated in the donation ceremony, said, “There are countless ships on the sea, and all of these ships use electricity by burning oil.” He added, “Reducing the electricity usage of these ships by just 10% will significantly reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and achieve carbon neutrality.” “It will have a significant effect,” he said. He continued, “We will do our best to maximize the savings effects of our products and publicize them.”

H Line Shipping Maritime Division is a company that is active in social volunteer activities. We provide regular support to Busan Dong-gu Welfare Center for the Disabled. The purchasing team experienced the effects of power-saving devices installed on ships starting in 2018 and sponsored their installation in 11 social welfare facilities across the country starting in 2021. A power-saving device was installed for long-term, continuous support rather than one-time support.

The installation of this training ship was also proposed by the purchasing team to help not only social welfare facilities but also educational institutions. Through the power-saving device installed on the training boat, students are expected to experience actual fuel savings and solidify their awareness of carbon neutrality. In addition, it is evaluated as a good opportunity to educate students about donation culture.
