Arriva Shipping continues fleet renewal

Arriva Shipping continues fleet renewal

(Posted on 21/06/23)

The Jarle Matre-controlled company, Norway based Arriva Shipping, has agreed with the Chinese shipyard Dayang Offshore Equipment Co. Ltd. to construct one 8,500 dwt dry cargo vessel to be delivered in the first half of 2025. This will be a sister vessel of the company`s MV “Nor Viking”, delivered in 2022, with improvements and upgrades customized for these vessels’ trade and markets.

“Long-term investment with a strong focus on reducing our carbon footprint is behind this investment. With MV “Nor Viking,” we achieve a 40% emission reduction, and the new vessel will have an equal or more significant reduction. We choose the most accessible and environmentally friendly technology commercially available by building a new battery hybrid vessel”, informs CEO & Partner Sindre Matre.

A substantial proportion of the investment and deliveries for this vessel, including design and building supervision, will be from Norwegian and European suppliers.

“Through this investment, Arriva Shipping aims to offer our customers even better logistical solutions with a greener footprint on competitive terms”, Matre says.

Arriva Shipping was founded in 1972 by Johannes Matre as a family-owned shipping company. Today the company is located with a head office in Ølensvåg and branch offices in Stavanger and Gdansk.

The short sea shipping company offers Norwegian and European industrial and entrepreneurial businesses flexible and reliable maritime transport services.

Arriva Shipping owns and operates in total nine self-discharging dry cargo vessels ranging from 2,000 to 8,000 deadweight tons. The company also uses hired tonnage, from 5-10 vessels, either on T/C or on a commission basis. The vessels operate mainly in Northern Europe.

The group has about 180 employees and had a turnover of MNOK 562 in 2022. Total freight volume amounted to approximately 4.6 million tons of bulk materials in 2022, with the vessels making 1,051 voyages to 15 different countries.
