Environmental Shipping

With expertise in integrated automation and digital solutions, energy control systems and power management and a vision to make shipping more sustainable, Høglund is well positioned to contribute to and shape the shipping of tomorrow!

As alternative fuels enter the market, and pressure grows on owners to decarbonize, one of the highest strategic priorities in this process is to ensure that a fleet can keep its options open and remain future-proof, even though prices and availability of low and zero carbon fuels remain uncertain.

With ambitious climate targets to meet, ship owners and operators also need access to detailed performance data from all the systems on board their ships to optimize operations. Managing energy in the future will be a core competence for shipping companies and hence, shipping will need far better access to data.

Moreover, with increased class requirements for data collection, and the increased need for ESG reporting to banks, insurers, charterers and cargo owners, owners and operators require much better access to their operational data.

How we support the industry on its path to decarbonization;

  • Høglund’s systems are designed in a way that maximizes access to data for playback and analysis. Integrated automation systems are the source of rich, accurate operational data.

  • Turning signals into useful information has always been at the core of Høglund’s expertise. By ensuring quality, accuracy, and easy access to data from the most basic level upwards, Høglund can ensure trust and reliability in the data that owners, crew, charterers etc. all use to make critical decisions.

  • Our energy control systems and power management support the energy transition to alternative fuels and hybrid propulsion.

  • Høglund is a majority stakeholder in an innovative concept Vindskip®. Vindskip® is a ship concept for sustainable ocean transport reducing energy consumption and emissions through wind assisted propulsion in combination with biogas and LNG. Visit www.vindskip.no for more information!
