Sailing trip is a success for Bestobell
Bestobell Valves is enjoying a great response from delegates at the Gas Fuelled Ships Conference, held in September onboard the LNG-fuelled ‘M/S Viking Grace’.
In excess of 200 delegates from the USA, Canada, Europe, Japan, South Korea, the Middle East and South East Asia, sailed from Stockholm, Sweden to Turku, Finland and back onboard the world’s first passenger cruise vessel to be fuelled by LNG.
Mark Henley, Managing Director of Bestobell Valves said: “We had a great response at the Gas Fuelled Ship Conference, with particular interest from American delegates and a number of enquiries for LNG carriers.”
“It is a great idea to hold the conference on a ship that runs on LNG, as it really did show its greater fuel efficiency and environmental benefits. It was also a great opportunity to network with professionals from across the marine industry to share knowledge and expertise,” he added.
The next conference is set to take place in November 2014 in Hamburg, Germany.
