In gas mode, NOx emissions are reduced by some 85% compared to diesel operation, SOx emissions are completely eliminated since gas contains no sulphur, and CO2 emissions are also reduced. Furthermore, particulate emissions are virtually zero since natural gas has no residuals.
Wärtsilä has also delivered the control system for Harvey Gulf’s shore-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuelling facility. The scope of supply comprises everything needed to ensure full control of the entire fuelling process from the control room on-board the Harvey Energy class platform supply vessels.
In addition, Harvey Gulf also signed a five-year Technical Management Agreement with Wärtsilä in order to optimize the ideal running conditions and maintenance for its LNG fleet.
