the Yxney peninsula
We chose to name our company Yxney, after a beautiful natural reserve south of Sandefjord, Norway. The Yxney peninsula stretches out making a spearhead in the ocean. We chose this name to inspire us, and hopefully others, to find solutions that are environmentally friendly.
Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time and we intend to do our part to tackle it. Our part, and where we can make the largest impact, is to make offshore vessels more efficient in operations and reducing emissions to the atmosphere.
