ONS 2010: Solstad shows clean-ship operations system
Solstad Offshore is showing ONS 2010 its concept of Climate Neutral Operations (CNO) as part of its environmental program on display at the show.
STAVANGER, Norway – Solstad Offshore is showing ONS 2010 its concept of Climate Neutral Operations (CNO) as part of its environmental program on display at the show.
Solstad says its CNO initiative probably makes it the world’s first shipping company to introduce the opportunity to operate climate-neutral ships. The company reports that its green operations have reduced its fleet’s fuel consumption by as much as 20%.
“We now want to invite our customers to use some of the cost savings from SGO (Solstad Green Operations) on fuel on CNO, says Tor Inge Dale, project manager for SGO and the company’s environmental and development engineer.
“CNO is a breakthrough on the road to us becoming a climate-neutral company, and because of the savings from SGO it is actually more expensive for our customers to operate a ship without environmental measures than using a climate-neutral ship,” says managing director Lars Peder Solstad.
