Hartmann Group to begin green tech roll-out on bulk carriers

Shipowner Hartmann Group has agreed a new partnership with Maersk Tankers’ green tech spin-out Njord for the design and installation of a customised selection of energy-saving devices on 12 of its bulk carriers.

The goal of the deal is to improve energy efficiency on the ships and cut fuel consumption and emissions by between 5 and 10%.

“Navigating the energy transition is complex, but we believe that keeping the existing fleet running for longer while making them as efficient as possible, is an important part of the solution,” says Niels Dr. Hartmann, CEO of Hartmann Group.

“To that end, we have partnered with Njord to help us assess our energy saving potential and install the right combination of technologies for each individual vessel.”

The installations will begin later this year and will include technologies such as engine optimisation, autologging, propeller enhancements and hull improvements. Most of the installations are planned to be done during operations to ensure minimal downtime for the vessels.

“We are proud to have been chosen as green tech partner for Hartmann Group, a very reputable name in the industry,” said Frederik Pind, Managing Director at Njord.

“We are confident that our knowledge of the vast technology landscape and expertise in integrating those during installation will boost the energy efficiency of their vessels and extend their tradability.”
