We have set a target to reduce our CO2emissions by 45 percent by 2030. Reducing fuel consumption and emissions from vessels that we charter is an important part of reaching this goal
said Øyvind Mikaelsen, CEO of DeepOcean.
Simon Møkster Shipping will install a 620kWh battery system from SEAM AS, which is a supplier of zero-emission solutions to the maritime industry. Stril Server’s control and DP systems will also be upgraded, and system for onshore charging will be installed.
The upgrade will be conducted in the first quarter of 2024.
