R. STAHL TRANBERG is proud supplier of marine lighting solutions to Yara Birkeland, the world’s first autonomous and zero-emission container vessel, built by VARD.
With the aim of reducing diesel-powered truck haulage by 40,000 journeys a year, Yara Birkeland will reduce NOx (Nitrogen oxide) and CO2 emissions, improve road safety, reduce road dust formation and reduce traffic noise while transporting fertilizer from Yara’s factory in Porsgrunn, Norway to the export port in Brevik, Norway.
Our Technology Director, Kjell Are Berg-Hagen commented: “The Yara Birkeland is likely to be just the start of the growing development of unmanned and hybrid vessels where more operations are controlled and monitored by onshore teams. R. STAHL TRANBERG will remain at the forefront of these developments, setting the standards for the marine lighting of the future on autonomous vessels.”
