Blue Water Shipping transported a piece of an iceberg from Narsaq in Greenland and three pallets containing a total of 540 litres of water from Godthaab Fjord to Scotland where they were part of an exhibition during the COP26 summit.
Participants could see the ice slowly melt from the iceberg to demonstrate the consequences of global warming. They could also taste the water from the Godthaab Fjord. The exhibition was initiated by Arctic Basecamp – a team of researchers focusing on the Arctic climate changes.
After both iceberg and water were loaded by Blue Water’s local staff in Greenland, it was shipped to Iceland. After negotiation with the Icelandic Customs authorities, Blue Water’s terminal workers were able to seal the cooling container and deliver it to the shipping line sailing to Scotland.
