Eidesvik gets its hands on Viking Energy Vessel & ROV News
// May 9, 2003
Eidesvik AS in Norway has taken delivery of their new dual fuel PSV VS4403 Viking Energy from Kleven in Norway. The vessel was the result of three years of prior development before being commissioned as the world's first gas-driven supply ship.
The owners Eidesvik AS took the initiative for, and headed the development of the gas-driven ship concept in close cooperation with Statoil. The project comprises of two ships, where Eidesvik AS and Simon Møkster Shipping AS will own and operate one shipeach. Both ships will be on a ten-year charter for Statoil.
"We see that the next generation of gas-driven ships probably can be simplified and made cheaper. The development of this vessel has also put us on the track of technology that can further reduce emissions," says Managing Director Simon Eidesvik.
Using gas reduces emissions of CO2 by about 20 per cent and NOx by about 85 per cent. There are no emissions of SO2.
