Today, at a seminar hosted by 2050 Consulting and CSR Västsverige, politicians, decision makers and business leaders met on board Götheborg of Sweden to discuss the role of West Sweden businesses in driving regional and international sustainability efforts to meet climate change.
New yards in the making
The exciting task for this week included locating, taking down, debarking and preparing timber that will become six new yards on the ship!
Heading out on our big expedition to Asia next year, we need to bring spare yards with us, and this week has been very busy at the sawmill outside of Laholm. Once the first processing of the logs has been done, they will be brought back to the workshop in Gothenburg where the work will continue.
For the rig enthusiasts: The first log in the video will be an angled mizzan yard (latine yard). The second will be the second half of our main yard. One of the logs will also be our new spritsail yard to replace the one that broke this summer. The current one will go back to being the spare spritsail yard.
A big thank you to Södra, SnickarNilsson, JB Riggers and PG Kran AB!
Sustainability is at the core of our expedition 2022/2023. Therefore, we have started a process of identifying what we can improve and what we can do to make sure we take responsible decisions and actions for a sustainable future.
The planned expedition to Asia is extended with a year, in response to the great interest in the expedition start-up in 2021. Arrival at the end destination in Asia, Shanghai, will be in September 2023. The route is expanded primarily in Europe, with focus on Northern Europe.
