Our achievements to embrace innovation to develop solutions

Develop new customer solutions, improve carbon footprint by use of innovation.

Our projects & newbuilding is constantly looking for modifications to deploy our fleet more effectively by allowing these vessels to load more cargo with the same assets. For instance, a series of twelve 6.000 DWT vessels are deepened resulting in 10% more cargo capacity.

Strive to operate a hydrogen or methanol MPP vessel in by 2025

In close cooperation with various clients, the possibilities of a methanol or hydrogen vessel are investigated with the intention to operate an MPP vessel in the Baltic region.

Leading vessel design & new building

We use our knowlegde to improve every new design for our fleet. Every new vessel design needs to have an improved CO2 footprint with a EEDI (Energy Efficieny Design Index) improvement of at least 5% compared to the previous design. In other words: every new type of vessel has to emit 5% less gram CO2 per ton cargo / nautical mile.
