Viking Line’s New LNG-Fueled Flagship ‘Viking Glory’ To Sail Under Finnish Flag

Viking Line’s new flagship, Viking Glory, which will launch service in early 2022 on the Turku–Åland–Stockholm route, will have a Finnish flag. As a result, Viking Line, which is Finland’s largest maritime employer, will expand its fleet with another Finnish-flagged vessel.  Viking Line is Finland’s largest maritime employer, with nearly 2,400 employees. Of the seven vessels in its fleet, five currently sail under the Finnish flag. Recruitment work for the new vessel will begin soon, and recruitment will begin first among staff employed on the company’s other vessels.

LIFE NIMBUS – Non-IMpact BUS: Circular economy for sustainable transport

Towards circular economy in public transport The transport sector demands around 30% of total primary energy consumption in Europe, but only less than 10% of the fuels used for transport are renewable. In this context, the European Union aims to achieve over 30% of energy consumption for transport from renewable sources by 2030. In view of this situation, NIMBUS aims to foster circular economy for a more sustainable transport. This project will develop and validate a system to produce biomethane, a sustainable and renewable fuel, from sewage sludge. Besides, the project will foster the concept of power-to-gas by turning the renewable energy surplus, which is difficult to store, into gas, which will also be used in the production of biomethane.
