The completion of another onshore power supply connection in the Port of Oslo is considered as an important milestone in the efforts to reduce emissions for Stena. Namely, the company is closing in its target of connecting 25% of its terminals in 2020.
Many of our vessels call at locations close to cities which makes it especially important to be able to shut down engines when docked
Erik Lewenhaupt, Head of Sustainability, Brand and Communication at Stena Line, said.
Oslo is the European Green Capital 2019 and the onshore power supply connection is expected to lead to a saving of just over 1.400 tonnes of fuel every year which equals to the CO2 emissions of 1.300 cars on a yearly basis.
For his part, Johan Edelman, Stena Lines Trade Director for Region Norway, noted that Stena wants to support Oslo reduce CO2 emissions in the city and the port.
