The green future of conventional Fuels

After 12 years of experimentation, research and development, Solvang and partners present a game changing technology: The shipboard carbon capture system.

Racing for the golden performance

Solvang’s annual Energy Efficiency Award lines up our vessels for the big match: Who can outperform the others in seamanship and vessel operation?

A long voyage towards discovery

After 12 years of experimentation, research and development, Solvang and our partners present a game changer technology: The shipboard carbon capture system.

Reducing our environmental impact

All human activity has an impact on life on land and in the sea. Our goal is to minimize operational and indirect emissions, and strive for zero spills to the environment.

The well-to-wake reality

Wishful plans to replace large proportions of fossil fuel with renewable energy should be replaced with a holistic approach enabling us to attain the best possible energy mix for the environment.

The cross-sectoral tradeoff

Given the precarious need for climate change mitigation and a scarce supply of renewable energy sources in the foreseeable future, renewable energy sources should be deployed where the climate effect is highest, which sometimes implies a tradeoff between sectors.

Deep sea shipping at the crossroads

After solving emissions of sulfur and nitrous oxides, shipping still needs to cut CO2 more than existing methods and fuels allow for. The time has arrived for a radical solution.

ESG Performance

To keep our commitment for continuous improvement, we constantly measure our performance. We have defined a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) within different areas. By analysing these we are able to show our performance, document our improvement and identify areas where we need further improvement.

What have we achieved with continuous improvements?

Reduction of our environmental footprint is a continuous process, which requires reliable performance data from the vessels. Since 2008, Solvang has systematically recorded vessel performance data and used this for benchmarking sister vessels, develop best operational practice and feed this into the design of our newbuilt ECO LPG carriers (first delivered in 2013).

Innovation for the environment

Since 2010, Solvang has pursued an innovation path to bring heavy fuel oil (HFO) operation into compliance with the strictest NOx emission control. The climate gain is significant.
