Blueflow AB: Viking Line deploys our main product Blueflow Fuel® for their Fuel Management platform to reduce fuel costs and environmental impacts.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 2016-04-04

Blueflow Technologies is proud to be selected and to work with Viking
Line, the leading shipping line in the Baltic Sea. The experienced
and competent crew of Viking Line completed the ship's installation
of Blueflow Fuel® largely by themselves.

With the EU calling for a global approach to reduce greenhouse gas
emissions from shipping has resulted in the requirement for shipping
lines to take action. The first step will be from the 1st January
2018 when all large shipping vessels using EU ports will be required
to report their annual emissions (verified). For Viking Line the
Blueflow Fuel® is a natural platform for their future MRV work as our
product already today partially is compliant towards many of the EU's
MRV legislation.

Ulf Hagström, SVP Marine Operations, Viking Line says:

"Blueflow is being used by Viking Line to detect deviations or
under-optimized routines in real time and then suggesting
alternatives (optimized from Blueflows historical data). We see the
benefit that the officers onboard the ships immediately can see the
difference in energy consumptions trying out different operating
methods.

Furthermore, Blueflow Fuel reporting system gives us full control of
the ship's fuel and energy consumption. It will also minimize the
effort needed to comply with the upcoming MRV-legislation."

Viking Line is the market-leading brand in passenger traffic on the [image]
northern Baltic Sea and it offers passenger services, recreation and
cargo carrier services on its vessels Gabriella, Mariella, Amorella,
Rosella, Viking Cinderella, Viking XPRS and on the new flagship
Viking Grace.

The MRV regulation The European Commission (EC) is bringing
emissions from shipping into its 2009 climate and energy package. MRV
is designed to progressively integrate maritime emissions into the
EU's policy for reducing domestic greenhouse gas emissions (EU
regulation 2015/757). MRV requires ship owners and operators to
annually monitor, report and verify CO2 emissions for vessels equal
to or larger than 5,000 GT and which call at any EU port. The results
will be published on a regular basis. Entered into force on 1 July
2015, the regulation will become fully effective on 1 January 2018.
