On November 29th Wagenborg was invited to the Waterborne transport conference in Brussels to join a panel about zero emission shipping. Theo Klimp, fleet director at Wagenborg Shipping and KVNR board member, has reflected on three questions; what do we want to achieve, what did we contribute already and what will we contribute, what other interventions are needed and by whom.
The vast majority of the Wagenborg has been switched to Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (VLSFO) as a response on the upcoming sulphur cap starting on January 1st 2020. As off 1st November – two months before the cap comes into force - Wagenborg started to order the new low sulphur compliant fuel.
Wagenborg was asked by a ship-dismantling company in Kampen, the Netherlands, to assist with her 300t floating crane Triton and Wagenborg Barge 1 to lift the ~2.500t weighing ex-fregat “Köln” from the water onto the quay side.
