Working toward an emission-free future
We’ve begun our most ambitious sustainability initiative ever in our 130-year history: developing zero-emission ships tailored to the Norwegian coast by 2030.
We are partnering with SINTEF, one of Europe’s largest independent research organizations, to explore solutions in energy efficiency and battery power.
By 2024, in one of the largest environmental ship upgrades in Europe and in our 130-year history, we will have transformed all seven of our ships with major green upgrades.
Our entire fleet will be more energy efficient, cutting CO2 emissions by 25% and NOx by 80%, and three ships will be upgraded to hybrid power.
From approved sustainable sources
Through new propeller blades, new bulbous bow, new gears, and new control systems
That optimise inertia and reduce drag when sailing
With biodegradable or long-lasting, high-quality alternatives
That allows all ships to ‘plug in’ to electricity when docked in port, reducing emissions
Systems to minimise emissions to sea
Our deep love for Norway’s coast compels us to take care of its pristine waters and shores – as well as the livelihoods of those who live there.
