- Port Tour
The Port Tour took place on the final day of GreenPort Congress 2019 on board MS Kongen and was a popular informative morning
Delegates were welcomed on board the MS Kongen for the port tour from 09.30-11.30 on Friday 18th October.
The vessel normally serves the local traffic in Oslo, bringing people from the peninsula of Nesodden to Oslo for work and back again. The ferry was equipped with a 26 tonne battery instead of LNG fuel during the summer.
The Port of Oslo showed us Oslo from the sea side and took us to ferry terminals with equipment for onshore power supply, past the new parts of the port which have been city developed during the last 20 years with harbour promenade, recreational areas, operahouse, Munchmuseum and residential areas and to the industrial part of the port.
The tour included an informative guide throughout in addition to Norweigan pancakes and was a huge success!
Oslo aim to be the most environmental friendly, efficient, citynear port, with electric STS and RTG cranes and they have an ambitious plan for how to become a zero emission port within 2030.
