  • "K" Line Environmental Awards 2018 Ceremony

    K Line environmental awards

    During a ceremony held at the head quarter of “K” Line in Tokyo 5th June 2018, K Line Offshore AS(KOAS) received an Excellence Award. As part of “K” Line Group Environmental Vision the Environmental Awards were established in 2015 in order to honor and give recognition to outstanding environmental preservation activities.

    KOAS received the award for the installation of shore power equipment on our Anchor Handlers (AHTS). In order to reduce emissions Norwegian ports have installed shore power connections, and we as vessel owner reacted quickly for the required installation onboard our AHTS’s. The Norwegian authorities have been supportive by granting financial support for the investments. In addition to the contribution for better environment by no emissions to the air since there is no burning of fuel in port, we benefit from better comfort onboard. Then we have less hours on the engines and possibility for maintenance work. We were as the first owner given “Shore Power” as part of the notation from DNV GL.

    CFO Petter Nordby received the award on behalf of KOAS from President and CEO Eizo Murakami, and Nordby thanked “K” Line for the support and for their focus on environmental issues.
