Framherji has also initiated actions relating to construction and green energy. Our joint office and warehouse building, contains a heating system where the heat is 100% generated by seawater. Regarding vessel construction, the recently built Akraberg has a battery system, intended to reduce energy consumption onboard. The vessel can also connect to land-based electricity when docked. All these activities combined, contribute towards reducing oil consumption and the reduction of noise- and smoke from the vessel.
