Gulf Coast Shipyard Group (GCSG) has announced the delivery of Harvey Power, the second LNG-fuelled vessel operating in the US. The vessel was delivered to Harvey Gulf International Marine and is now in service in the the Gulf of Mexico.
The ship is the second of six LNG OSVs being built for Harvey Gulf International Marine, and like her sistership Harvey Energy, Harvey Power is capable of operating on LNG or diesel fuel.
Along with being able to operate on LNG, the vessel also meets the strident criteria of the ABS Enviro+, Green Passport notation. When operating on LNG, these vessels exceeds the new Tier IV emissions regulations requiring lower sulphur oxides and nitrogen oxides emissions as part of the North American Emission Control Area (ECA).
Harvey Power will refuel with LNG at Harvey Gulf’s new LNG bunkering facility at Port Fourchon in southern Louisiana.
