Harvey Gulf to roll out SailPlan software for emissions reduction programme

Deepwater transportation company Harvey Gulf International Marine has entered into a new agreement to deploy the SailPlan system across its fleet, to reduce emissions from its ships.

Harvey Gulf has already reported quantifiable emissions reductions with an early implementation aboard the Harvey Power, a 310-foot Platform Supply Vessel designed to run on Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), electric battery power, and ultra-low sulphur diesel.

SailPlan assists vessel operators in benchmarking, optimising, and reporting greenhouse gas emissions from vessels in real-time, combining engine, fuel, and navigational data from vessels with weather, mapping, infrastructure, and traffic data.

The application will help Harvey Gulf to benchmark its emissions in all three fuel operating modes using real-world data, while optimising engine load to reduce fuel consumption and reduce emissions.

With operations in the US and Mexico, Harvey Gulf will begin the expansion of its emissions reduction programme by adding SailPlan to the rest of its LNG fleet.

“SailPlan is a ground-breaking innovation in sustainable vessel operations,” said Shane Guidry, Chief Executive Officer at Harvey Gulf.

“Our goal is to become a world-leading sustainable operator, and SailPlan’s technology allows us to accurately measure and reduce our fleet’s emissions. We’re able to provide the real-time metrics to our charterers that demonstrate our ability to affordably run NetZero operations.”
