From the first of July the driven captain Tom Rune Sørvik Jakobsen will sign on ISFJORD-EKSPRESSEN in Svalbard. Tom Rune grew up on the island of Lovund on the outskirts of the Helgeland coast, where he has been brought up on seamanship.
His father started Lovund’s boat shuttle in 1997 and Tom Rune has been involved in the operation until today. Tom Rune now works as a self-employed in Arctic Maritime Partner AS, parallel with his engagement in Lovund’s shuttle service.
With his maritime expertise, he heads towards Svalbard and will follow the shuttle boat from Lovund in new waters.
