Our suppliers play an integral part in our mission to make our business more sustainable every day. At Royal Wagenborg we believe that it is a joint responsibility together with our suppliers to develop and offer services in a responsible and sustainable manner. We expect all of our suppliers to support us on this sustainability journey.
After a few weeks of maintenance, the MV Medemborg has been taken into service again after her fifth class renewal. After this refit in Liepaja, the 9.000 DWT M-type vessel was put back into operations for many more years of reliable service.
Royal Wagenborg has published its 2021 Sustainability Report, a detailed report on how it integrates sustainability into its business and own operations. In 2021 Royal Wagenborg made significant progress in improving her approach to Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) issues and in evolving our business to respond to the changes required in the ongoing energy transition.
As sustainability is of strategic and vital importance to Wagenborg, we clearly target our ambitions and intensively track progress against these targets. This report covers our social, safety and environmental performance and progress in 2020.
In the last two weeks, the m.v. Warnowborg was docked. During this docking period various ‘green updates’ were made to this geared 8.600 DWCC multipurpose vessel. Thanks to a great effort of the Wagenborg crew, technical shore support and the shipyard, the Warnowborg is ready for the upcoming years of services.
Currently, the BLRT Repair Yard in Tallinn is having four of our MPP vessels for regular maintenance: Adriaticborg, Exeborg, Wislaborg and Fraserborg. In addition, in three of these vessels, a ballast water treatment system will be installed.
Recently, a so-called Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system was installed in the oldest Wagenborg tugboat 'Waterpoort' - built in 1962 and equipped with an old Stork Werkspoor engine. With this catalytic converter behind the engine, exhaust gases are treated, so that nitrogen (NOx) is captured.
