Innovation: Tech partnerships pay off

Live testing conditions make Solvang an attractive technology partner across several fields of maritime development. In 2023, projects in and outside of dry docking demonstrated a high outcome in terms of energy efficiency. The results span from propulsion drivetrain optimization, to friction-limitation by hull improvement, through to exhaust cleaning and last – but not least – part load optimization and operational improvement. Solvang’s Fleet Director Tor Øyvind Ask offers and account of which measures really make a difference in deep-sea green technology.

Freedom to blow the whistle

A culture of confidence, personal integrity and high quality is the documented effect of trusting our employees on all levels. Solvang allows employees to report incidents without fear of backlash. HR Director Kjetil Meling explains why.

In the same period, environmental technology such as exhaust gas scrubbing, hull, propeller and drivetrain optimization, as well as operational excellence – achieved 18.7 percent emission cuts on our vessels.
