On 4-7 April, Bergen Engines participated at Nor-Shipping 2022 in Oslo, Norway. The 2022 event was focused on #ACTION, looking at the people, concepts, and businesses that are making a positive impact NOW. Future fuels is a hot topic in the marine industry, and the Bergen Engines crew were happy to present the AMAZE project, where they are looking into ammonia as a potential fuel for combustion engines.
Nor-Shipping is the destination for ocean opportunity, and only a few days before the event, it was announced that Bergen Engines will be able to trade directly with the marine industry from April 1st 2022. This announcement led to several fruitful discussions with both existing and potential customers about Bergen Engines’ products and services.
Watch Jon Erik Røv, Managing Director at Bergen Engines, summarizing the event:

In 1946 the company built its first diesel engine and has since commissioned over 7,000 of its iconic liquid and gas fuelled engines. More than half of them are still in operation today, such is the quality and reliability of a Bergen engine.
