Far Searcher

70-100 m

200-500 kWh

Far Searcher operates with a diesel-electric propulsion machinery. This leads to an approximate 50% reduction of bunker consumption where CO2 emissions are reduced correspondingly compared to a ship with traditional machine equipment. In addition, the ship is equipped with catalysts that reduce NOx emissions to 0,5 g/kWh.
