- The tanks were loaded on board the barge Ponton 6 in the Danish city of Fredricia, before they were secured and transported to Norway, says head of operations at FFS Leif Steinar Simonsen.

The tow took a total of six days – two days down, one day loading and two days back.

- It's fun to be able to help local businesses, says Simonsen.

The GE Healthcare factory in Lindesnes municipality produces basic substances for contrast agents used in medical imaging. These products are created in one of the world's most modern and efficient processing facilities.
