December 15, 2018 |

In Norway, Hurtigruten revealed plans to use liquid biogas in new ships that were launched at Kleven shipyard in Norway.

Hurtigruten chief executive Daniel Skjeldam told Passenger Ship Technology that the new ships would “change the industry, push the boundaries and change the entire face of cruising.” He said these “hybrid cars of the ocean” would cut emissions by 20%.

“Hurtigruten is the first company to opt to use liquid biogas,” according to Passenger Ship Technology. “This will be added to the power mix of its six Norwegian coast vessels it is converting to LNG and battery power and now LBG as well.” Mr. Engebretsen told Passenger Ship Technology “We will blend the LNG with LBG, and the LBG will make up 10-15% of the mix with the LNG.”
