Standpoint: Retrofit financing – equipped for the future

Teaser picture of Capical Link podcast with Tanja Georg and Stephan Vetter

On the way to climate-neutral shipping, it is neither economically viable nor environmentally friendly to scrap an existing fleet completely and replace it with new ships. The environmental performance of ships can be improved more cost-effectively and with less risk through optimised operation and retrofitting measures. KfW IPEX-Bank has extensive experience in retrofit financing and aims to support its customers in their transformation.

Tanja Georg, Director and Team Head Origination & Structuring, Maritime Industries, and Stephan Vetter, Vice President Debt Origination & Structuring APAC, Maritime Industries, explain in a video podcast of Capital Link how customers can find the right financing solution for their individual needs through the integration of ECA, private risk insurance, green loans or sustainability-linked loans.
