Percy R. Pyne

Chairman and Co-Founder Green Shipping Line

Percy R. Pyne is Chairman, CEO, and founding partner of Green Shipping Line. His legendary family history in marine transportation has cultivated his drive to pioneer a Jones Act compliant feeder concept to catapult the U.S. offshore wind industry. He is the first to amass a team of leading European and American partners to design, construct and operate a fleet of modern Jones Act feeder vessels, including GSL’s Eleanor, a first-of-its-kind vessel in the U.S. capable of transporting all the components of a wind tower to both foreign and Jones Act compliant wind turbine installation vessels.

With more than 40 years in the shipping and marine transportation industry, Pyne has advised on major U.S. and international transactions, and is the co-founder of American Feeder Lines. He has received three America’s Marine Highway project designations, had two vessel designs pre-approved by ABS and received wide union support for ongoing efforts to revive marine transportation in the U.S.

New Jersey-based Green Shipping Line (GSL) is reintroducing the concept of transporting containerized freight via the American Marine Highway and ensuring full use of the marine transportation network in the U.S. GSL is poised to build a fleet of state-of-the-art vessels that will provide environmentally friendly marine transport of goods on the American Marine Highway, creating thousands of new jobs within the United States, while helping to solve our country’s infrastructure crisis.
