The world’s first onboard carbon capture on voyage

After receiving MNOK 78 in Norwegian government climate fund support, Clipper Eris makes a first launch of full-scale onboard CCS, highlighting Solvang’s pathfinder mission in climate technology for deepsea shipping.

Eco performance: Emissions down 19 % – capacity up 25 %

Solvang’s energy efficiency show a significant improvement over the last 15 years. While total fleet deadweight has increased 15.6 percent, cargo capacity is up by 25.3 percent. 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.

Our impact on life below sea and on land

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

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.

Discharges to sea and land

Under normal operation, discharges to the sea are small and we have chosen to consider the following categories:

A long voyage towards discovery

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.
