The future builds on a century of steam

Welcome to the NEAR Marine special edition newsletter about Aalborg boilers’ 100th anniversary. In 1919, when the first marine boiler left the Aalborg Shipyard in Aalborg, Denmark, no one could have known the significance it would have. 100 years later, the Aalborg name has become synonymous with boiler expertise.
