Van Oord reducing emissions of its fleet

Van Oord – a global marine contractor that focuses on dredging, land infrastructure in the Netherlands, offshore wind and oil & gas industtries is taking a next step in the energy transition of its fleet.

An advanced combustion conditioning system with hydrogen and methanol will be installed on subsea rock installation vessel Bravenes.

The FUELSAVE FS MARINE+ is a patented solution to reduce both fuel consumption and harmful emissions of marine diesel-powered engines.

This solution enables Van Oord to achieve substantial carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and black carbon (BC) reduction on existing ships.

After more than 5 years of validating the technology in the field, in the laboratory and deploying the system on the world’s largest single row 4-stroke engine, the FS MARINE+ solution has been chosen by Van Oord.

This is the first time that the system is being deployed on MaK engines with a classification from Bureau Veritas and Kongsberg Vessel Insight integration for a demanding DP3 operation.

This sustainable investment is paving the way for next generation of structural efficiency enhancement and emission reduction for the offshore industry.
