New joint venture
The two established Swedish companies Alfa Laval and Wallenius have joined forces to radically reduce the marine industry’s carbon footprint. The 50/50 joint venture formally called AlfaWall Oceanbird, will develop and provide technology for wind-powered vessel propulsion.
We have done it before
Alfa Laval and Wallenius are familiar partners in developing ground-breaking technology. The companies have collaborated before on PureBallast, which is one of today’s leading solutions for chemical-free ballast water treatment. Niclas Dahl headed the development and launch of PureBallast, and is now Managing Director of Oceanbird.
“COP26 put the need for accessible technology in the spotlight,” says Niclas Dahl. “Decarbonizing shipping is imperative, and wind is a free source of power with a substantial role to play, and minimum need of infrastructure.”
