Expedition cruise liners driven by dead fish






Hurtigruten to power cruise ships fossil-free fuel including fishery cutaways


Cruise company  Hurtigruten will power their ships with liquified biogas (LBG), fossil-free, renewable fuel produced from dead fish and other organic waste.


Cutaways from fisheries and other organic waste will soon be used to power Hurtigruten's fleet of green cruise ships.


With a growing fleet of 17 ships, Hurtigruten is the world's largest expedition cruise line. The company has invested heavily in green technology and such as battery solutions - and is considered the world's greenest cruise company.


The next step: Powering cruise ships with liquified biogas (LBG) - fossil-free, renewable gas produced from dead fish and other organic waste.


Hurtigruten CEO Daniel Skjeldam said "What other see as a problem, we see as a resource and a solution. By introducing biogas as fuel for cruise ships, Hurtigruten will be the first cruise company to power ships with fossile-free fuel,


Renewable biogas is a clean source of energy, considered the most eco-friendly fuel currently available. Biogas is already used as fuel in small parts of the transport sector, especially in buses. Northern Europe and Norway, which has large fishery and forestry sectors that produces a steady volume of organic waste, has a unique opportunity to become world leader in biogas production.
