Norwegian ports part of initiative for zero emission ship by 2030

03 April 2023

The Norwegian Maritime Authority and the Port of Bergen joined Hurtigruten Norway’s "Sea Zero" project with ten maritime partners. With €7 million public funding and a €13 million budget, this initiative focuses on developing energy-efficient, sustainable cruise ships by 2030. The project aims to pioneer innovative solutions in energy efficiency, battery tech, propulsion, hull design, and hotel operations to minimise energy consumption. The research phase, from 2023 to 2025, will lead into constructing new ships aiming for zero emissions to sea and air, emphasizing energy efficiency as a game-changer. The project anticipates influencing the global market with green technologies, potentially creating hundreds of millions in value by 2030, revolutionising passenger transport sustainably.
