“LNG is more important than ever as a transition and transportation fuel. Not only does it reduce the global warming gas, CO2, by about 50% compared to coal, but it also provides significant higher reduction in air pollutants like SOx, PMx and NOx (85-99%) which cause respiratory illnesses. Our fleet of ships are also the largest and most efficient ships which use almost half as much fuel as the steam ships while carrying about 30% larger parcel sizes.”
Øystein M. Kalleklev, Chief Executive Officer of Flex LNG Management AS
