Green ships into the future

Digitalisation and new technology are key drivers of Havila’s leadership in sustainability, achieving reduced emissions and increased safety and efficiency with the green ships.

Havila Shipping was among the first to install battery packages on-board their vessels. Fuel consumption is digitalized and carefully monitored. Heat recovery is utilised, ships are prepared for shore power and the fleet has environmental accounting.

Havila Shipping has some of the cleanest vessels in the offshore fleet. This is good news for both environment and clients. However, we know that there is still a lot of work to do to match our environmental footprint with the green color of our vessels. 

Havila Shipping’s competence from years of record newbuild activity and innovations is now being used for leading Havila’s Green ships into the future. Through cooperation with customers, technology companies and academia, we develop tomorrow’s ships for the energy industry.

To help us stay focused, we have defined short, mid and long-term goals for reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.

Our commitment is

  • 3 % reduction of our co2-emission intensity per year until the sustainability strategy is reviewed in 2025. 
  • to reduce 50% emission intensity by 2030 
  • achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. 

* 2022 fleet.
