Viking Lady On Display In Copenhagen

Posted on December 14, 2009

A press tour of the Viking Lady will be held on Dec. 16 during the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (COP15). According to Wärtsilä, this offshore supply vessel is the only ship with a fuel cell integrated as part of its power generation. The Viking Lady will be docked at a unique location in Central Copenhagen, surrounded by the city's new playhouse, opera and old dock storages.

Compared to a traditional ship, the Viking Lady's advanced technology enables her to reduce harmful NOx emissions by 180 tonnes, an amount equal to annual emissions from 22 000 cars. CO2 emissions are reduced by 20%. The ship's marine adapted fuel cell reduces emissions to air, and has advantage of operating very quietly in busy harbors. The Viking Lady's LNG (liquefied natural gas) operated engines emit no smoke or sulphur.

Registration: Due to ISPS requirements, preregistration to the event is required. Please send name and name of publication/company to press@vikinglady.no.
