Fjord Maritime generates good news
NORWEGIAN aquaculture supplier Fjord Maritime has signed a contract with Grieg Seafood in Finnmark to supply four of its Fjord Hybrid systems.
Powered by maritime approved lithium batteries, the Fjord Hybrid system can reduce the running time of diesel generators on feed vessels and will be utilised on Grieg Seafood’s feed barges.
Bergen based Fjord Maritime is now focused on Norway but plans to look to international markets by the end of the year.
Marketing manager Oyvind Bakke explained the benefits: ‘Generator running times are reduced to a minimum, from 24 hours down to two hours per day, leading to a significant reduction in fuel consumption and service costs, and a much healthier working environment.’
