Nordic Bulk Carriers takes the next step in the Arctic

Danish shipping company Nordic Bulk Carriers plans to be the first carrier to sail via the Northern Sea Route from Canada to Finland.

For the first time ever, a commercial ship will use the Northern Sea Route as a transit passage. The transit concerns the transportation of coal from Canada to Finland, and Danish pioneer Nordic Bulk Carriers A/S is the one doing the job. The route enables lower fuel consumption, less CO2 emissions and a bigger cargo, writes the Danish Shipowners' Association on its website.

One of the world's only modern ice-class bulkers, MV Nordic Orion, will carry 73,500 tons of coal to Finland via the Northern Sea Route.
