Fjordveien ferry

LowNOx conversion reduces NOx taxes for the Fjordveien ferry

With support from the Norwegian NOx Fund, Norled AS decided to use the opportunity to invest in a LowNOx conversion for their Fjordveien ferry engines. This conversion not only enhances Norled’s image as a green company, but generates revenue in terms of significantly reduced NOx taxes. Wärtsilä supplied a tailor-made solution for Norled, covering the design and engineering, spare parts and the installation of the LowNOx conversion.

“We estimate a yearly NOx reduction of more than 12,000 tons. For us that means we can apply for a payback of approximately NOK 250 per kilo reduction in NOx, limited to 80% of the cost for modification, from the NOx Fund”
