Leading the way towards truly sustainable shipping
We have worked to reduce the ecological footprint from the ships that we manage and design, since the beginning of 1990. That was before sustainability was on everybody’s lips. We strives for zero emissions and has a road map to achieve this: ZERO (Zero Emission RoRo).
Our work towards truly sustainable shipping never ends. We keep improving all areas within our business, and here are a few examples:
- Performance monitoring system
Monitoring performance have enabled us to decrease fuel consumption with 40 000 tonnes over four years. We have routines for engine performance follow up and optimizing of trim, draft and voyage planning.
- Up-stream ballast water treatment
Invasive organisms travel between the world’s oceans in ships ballast water. We have long experience in operating and maintaining systems that treats ballast water, like Pure Ballast that remove organisms with UV light instead of using dangerous substances. Another contribution to prevent organisms to travel between the oceans, is optimal antifouling solutions. Growth on the hull, so called fouling, can also lead to poor energy performance, and therefore higher air emissions.
- ISO certified by Lloyd’s Register for ISO9001 and ISO14001.
- Recycling of vessels
We have institutionalized processes which ensures that 98 % of the materials is recycled. This enable us to further limit the environmental footprint over the vessels’ lifetime.
