Italienske Moby Group har valgt Kongsberg Maritime til at opgradere fremdriftssystemerne på fem af deres færger. Opgraderingerne vil reducere CO2 udledningen med 30.000 tons om året.

“This latest investment into upgrading our fleet demonstrates our continuing commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our operations and improving the overall service we can offer customers. By carrying out a programme of relatively simple upgrades to the propulsion systems, we can reduce our CO2 emissions by more than 30,000 tonnes per year. We’re pleased to be working with Kongsberg Maritime again on this latest project, as we draw on their expertise in efficient propeller design to transform our operations. We’re investing in new ships and new routes, innovative services and distribution as well as pricing strategies, a strict, quality-oriented hiring policy and uncompromising attention to safety and the environment”.

Achille Onorato, CEO of Moby.

De tre færger MOBY AKI, MOBY VINCI og SHARDEN vil få monteret Promas Lite fremdriftssystemer, som kombinerer ror og propel i en fremdriftsenhed. De to færger MOBY TOMMY og MOBY WONDER vil hver få montereret Kongsberg Kamewa-propeller med kontrollerbare pitch som en del af deres opgradering.

“This latest upgrade will deliver significant reductions in carbon dioxide emissions for the five ships, and we’re delighted that Moby has again selected Kongsberg to provide an upgrade solution that supports our common goal to pursue sustainability, reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.”

Jouni Raatikainen, Kongsberg Maritime’s Executive Vice President Global Customer Support.
