Stena Line inaugurated a new onshore power supply connection in the Port of
Oslo on January 8.
“The completion of yet another
onshore power supply connection in the Port of Oslo is an important milestone
in our efforts to reduce emissions and we are now closing in on our target of
connecting 25 % of our terminals in 2020,” Erik
Lewenhaupt, Head of Sustainability, Brand and Communication at Stena Line,
With this development, the company’s vessel Stena Saga
will now be able to connect to the electricity grid during calls into
port, marking an important step in Stena Line’s sustainability work.
With Stena Saga, 14 of Stena Lines 38 vessels can now connect to
green electricity when in port.
“Many of our vessels call at
locations close to cities which makes it especially important to be able to
shut down engines when docked,” Lewenhaupt
