Bothnia Bulk project reduces shipping CO2 emissions by 50%

November 5, 2020 |

In Finland, the Bothnia Bulk project has mitigated climate change and air pollution in the year-round supply of raw materials in the Bay of Bothnia. Total CO2 -emissions per transport work have reduced by up to 50% compared with conventional vessels in operation. Also, other harmful air emissions (SOX, NOX, and PM) have reduced significantly. This is achieved through two new EU co-funded LNG fueled vessels Viikki and Haaga with shore power connection and other energy efficiency measures on board. The LNG technology and infrastructure enable the usage of fossil-free biogas as ship fuel which further reduce air emissions. In addition, the project established on-shore power supply and improved efficiency in port operations.
