While other cruise lines are running on fuel that is polluting the environment Hurtigruten will become the first Cruise Operator to be powered by the natures of life.
Signing a seven-year-plus deal with Norwegian company Biokraft who will deliver almost daily the delivery of Biogas which will power the ships with fuel made from dead fish and other Organic Waste.
Hurtigruten claims to be the first Cruise line in the world to be running on fossil-free fuel.
The cruise line is aiming to have the Hybrid ships running by 2021 running on clean electric power and natural gas known as LNG and Biogas known as LBG.
The renewable biogas is already used in the transport sector especially in buses.
With Norway and parts of Northern Europe having a large fishing industry and forestry sectors that already produce a large amount of organic waste giving Biokraft the opportunity to become the world leader in Biogas
This new deal between Biokraft and Hurtigruten could see a change for the future of the cruise and shipping industry in general.
With climate change being a worldwide problem and our Oceans being under pressure from pollution Biokraft is hoping to make a big change to this with dedicated partners like Hurtigruten.
Hurtigruten’s CEO Daniel Skjeldam stated ‘’This is a large and significant move for Hurtigruten, for Biokraft, for green solutions in the global shipping industry, and most importantly, for the environment.’’
