New liquid CO2 ship for Yara

 Yara has a fleet of tanker vessels dedicated to transporting carbon dioxide. This fleet of three ships is now completely modernized, with Yara Gerda, named after a figure in Norse mythology, starting service this month.Yara Gerda is a new dedicated liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) marine tanker replacing an older tanker. Yara’s CO2 is used in the beverage business (carbonation), food business (chilling, freezing), air catering (cold chain assurance) and greenhouse businesses. Yara is Europe's No.1 producer and No.3 retailer of liquid CO2.“CO2 touches our lives every day,” says Petter Østbø, Yara’s Vice President Gas and Industrial Applications.“It provides us with the fizz in our beverages, the freshness of our groceries and of our meals on flights. Being a major European player in this market means that Yara adds something positive to the daily lives of millions of Europeans.”Why ships?Reliability is at the core of Yara’s value proposition as a CO2 supplier. This is a business with peaks and seasonality, especially around the summer. Customers’ processes rely on continuous, just-in-time deliveries. Some customers receive Yara CO2 several times a day. Any delivery delay has the potential to rapidly halt production at our customers who depend on our CO2.“Supply reliability is clearly ...

Yara fights emissions at sea

Commercial ships are heavy emitters of harmful nitrogen oxides NOx and sulphur oxides (SOx). These exhaust gases are created when burning fossil fuels. They have negative consequences for our health (asthma) and the environment (acid rain). Yara has over the past years expanded its emissions to air (E2A) portfolio through a combination of innovation projects and acquisitions.The acquisitions of H+H and Green Tech Marine enabled Yara to become a total solution provider for both NOx and SOx emissions at sea. They provide Yara with technology uniqueness. H+H is the market leader in marine NOx reduction technology, while Yara Marine Technologies (formerly Green Tech Marine) has developed an innovative high-performance and energy-saving solution for reducing the SOx emissions in the maritime and offshore industries. The smallest scrubber in the market make it easy to retrofit any seagoing vessel by simply replacing ship’s exhaust silencer without the need of structural modifications. As a consequence the installation and commissioning of the scrubber can even be done while sailing. Yara is taking steps to improve on  internal emissions and a good example for that is the new ammonia ships, which will be equipped with Yara's emissions control technology.
