Loss due to fewer crui­se ship tou­rists in Ny Åle­sund

Ny Åle­sund has recei­ved con­sider­a­b­ly fewer tou­rists in 2013, com­pared to the 2012 sea­son. A year ago, visi­tors num­be­red near 40,000. This figu­re decre­sed to 25,000 in 2013. Accor­ding to the direc­tor of the owner com­pa­ny, the con­se­quence was a loss of 2 mil­li­on Nor­we­gi­an Kro­ner in har­bour fees and sou­ve­nir sales.

The reason is belie­ved to be the expen­si­ve com­pul­so­ry pilo­ta­ge, which is curr­ent­ly being intro­du­ced step­wi­se, and the ban of hea­vy oil as ship fuel, alt­hough ships using hea­vy oil may still visit Ny Åle­sund and Mag­da­le­nefjord until 2014.
