Reduced Emission

Reduced Emission

Ocean Star and Ocean Art have both been upgraded to seamless shore-connection power supply. This means that there are no use of aux.engines when in port, and there will be zero emission even when the vessels are fully operational; loading, discharging and cargo operation. In Norwegian ports, these vessels now only use renewable energy. This will further reduce already low emission.
