Nottingham Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis’ Capital Maritime group have purchased one of the world’s larget carbon dioxide carrier ships.

The Greek billionaire, whose net worth is reported to be over $3bn (£2.5m), has long been a frontrunner in advocating eco-friendly practices in the maritime industry.

He recently cemented his commitment to sustainbility by investing $145 million in acquiring the world’s largest CO2 carriers from Hyundai Mipo Dockyard. The state-of-the-art vessels are specifically designed to reduce carbon emissions significantly.

“We hope to lead the market for carbon dioxide carriers in partnership with HD Hyundai, which is technically the most prepared in the field of next-generation eco-friendly ships,” an official from Capital Maritime Group said.

Meanwhile, Forest are expected to ramp up their transfer recruitment in the coming weeks as they look to strengthen their squad in midfield and defence.

There are a number of departures which could occur, with Cheikhou Kouyate and Wily Boly among the players who could be sold this summer.
