Environment: Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

We are committed to minimizing fuel consumption and reducing air emissions, including sulphur, nitrogen, and CO2. Our Technical Department continuously explores innovative solutions to optimize vessel propulsion systems and promote economic sailing. We promote behavioral changes and employ technical measures to reduce electricity and fuel consumption onboard. Our newly constructed ships are equipped with highly efficient engines, advanced energy-efficient rudders, and modern hull coatings to minimize resistance. We prioritize trim and speed optimization, utilizing weather routing systems to track and avoid unfavorable conditions during voyages.

Driving Efficiency through Technology and Data

Hartman Seatrade has developed an in-house, sensor-based fleet performance platform to measure, analyze, and improve our ships’ efficiency.
