Hurtigruten Expeditions’ Maud made its maiden call at Harwich International recently.

Maud, returning from a 14-night Norwayand Arctic Circle cruise, was in Harwich at the same time as the British Antarctic Survey’s new vessel, RRS Sir David Attenborough.

‘We are delighted to welcome the MS Maud on its first call to Harwich International and we look forward to many future visits. Having the RSS Sir David Attenborough in port at the same time provides a nice moment of symmetry — one regular Arctic visitor and one ship about to sail on its first voyage to the Antarctic,’ Hutchison Ports UK CEO Chris Lewis said. ‘Both are extraordinary vessels that will have the privilege to visit some of the remotest parts of the planet.’

MS Maud is powered by environmentally certified Biofuel, made from waste produced from industries such as fishing, and mixed with marine gasoil, to reduce Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen Oxides and Sulphur Oxides emissions.
