A MODERN, SAFE AND ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY FLEET

Bergen Tankers AS operates as of today a fleet of four coastal tankers and two bunkering barges.  The entire fleet is owned wholly or partly by Bergen Tankers AS.
Bergen Tankers AS aims is to be in front of development in our market. Since 1998 the company has spent extensive time and resources in order to secure newer tailor made tankers with a safer distribution method of oil products and bunkers operations.
Vessels have been designed or selected based on the company’s long experience in product tanker operation along the Norwegian coast. Our focus is safety for the crew, for the ship and for its cargo. To achieve and improve safety margins, the company relies on the redundancy of critical equipment, a highly competent crew and tailor made operation plans and procedures.
Bergen Tankers has a high focus on environmental friendly solutions both for the present fleet and for future projects. In close cooperation with Statoil and the Norwegian "Business Sector's NOx Fund" our two ships, Bergen Star and Bergen Nordic have been equipped with technologic solutions which reduces NOx emissions with more than 90 percent. All of our ships run on light fuel oils and Bergen Tankers meet all governmental regulations regarding pollution prevention and emission to air. In 2015 Bergen Viking will be converted into LNG power, which will dramatically reduce both CO2 and NOX emissions from the vessel. All our vessels have double hull.
