Norwegian feed transporter Stornes Skip’s vessel MS Borgenfjord, operated by global fish feed giant BioMar, has returned to Norwegian waters following a significant green upgrade in Tallinn,
The refit included a 17-metre extension and an advanced diesel-electric/hybrid propulsion system, marking the aqua feed producer’s intensified shift towards sustainable logistics
Heidi Halvorsen, Director of Finance at BioMar, highlighted the benefits of the refit in a press release issued on Tuesday.
“This has not only resulted in a significant reduction of CO2 and NOx emissions per kilogram transported,” she said. “But also increased the loading capacity by up to 870 tons per load.”
Borgenfjord was originally built in Tallinn in 2009. The ship has been part of BioMar’s feed fleet since 2013, and delivers fish feed along the Norwegian coast.
Stornes Skip, based in Steinkjer, is owned by Bengt and Trond Stornes. They are the third generation of Stornes operating in the shipping industry. The company’s vessels are built especially to transport bags of fish feed for Biomar along the coast in Western Norway.
