About the Statsraad Lehmkuh ship
According to Wikipedia *, Statsraad Lehmkuhl was built in 1914 by Joh. C. Tecklenborg shipyard in Geestemünde as a training ship for a German merchant navy. It is a three-masted barque-sailboat-training vessel owned and operated by the Statsraad Lehmkuhl Foundation and based in Bergen, Norway. The ship is engaged for a variety of purposes, including academic matters for the Royal Norwegian Navy and now the One Ocean Expedition.
The Statsraad Lehmkuhl has quite a story. After World War I it was once taken as a prize by the UK and in 1921 it was purchased by former minister Kristofer Lehmkuhl. During World War II the ship was captured by German forces and then belonged to Bergens Skoleskib from 1921 until it was donated to the Statsraad Lehmkuhl Foundation in 1978.
Prior to the start of the Traversie, the ship’s crew successfully tested the newly installed battery to see if it can be charged when the propeller turns during the voyage. Using tugs, it has been confirmed that when the Statsraad Lehmkuhl sails it will produce up to 60 kilowatts of electricity and charge the battery. All of this will be possible without producing harmful emissions in the ocean. It is important that the iconic sails of the Statsraad Lehmkuhl are in good condition to facilitate navigation. In October, extensive maintenance work was carried out below the bridge using traditional methods.
With newly installed batteries on board and the use of biodiesel, the ship represents the world’s most environmentally friendly tall ship in its class. Mowi believes One Ocean Expedition can make a difference, spreading the message of sustainability to the world. * Source: Wikipedia
