French multinational Michelin Tire has signed up to ship some of the tires it makes in Nova Scotia across the Atlantic to France on a cargo vessel powered mainly by sail.

 

The agreement with Neoline, a startup shipping line based in Nantes, France, is being explained as an effort to reduce Michelin's greenhouse gas emissions.

 

"This initiative and this new partnership promote innovation in the field of carbon-free transport," Pierre-Martin Huet, Michelin Group's supply chain director, said in a statement.

 

Michelin has committed to move about 100 containers a year from Halifax to the port of Saint-Nazaire in Brittany on a yet-to-be-built commercial sailing ship when it begins a new transatlantic service in 2023.

 

Neoline said, with 24 trips a year and an average speed of 11 knots — will reduce fuel consumption by up to 90 per cent of conventional vessels, said the company.
