(RESTON, Va.) — SailPlan, a maritime clean technology company that reduces ship emissions, has announced that Harvey Gulf International Marine has entered into a commercial agreement to add SailPlan to its fleet.
SailPlan is an emissions monitoring and optimization platform that combines the real-time engine, fuel and navigational data from vessels with weather, mapping, infrastructure and traffic data to benchmark, optimize and report fleet emissions.
Harvey Gulf has already seen quantifiable emissions reductions beginning with Harvey Power, a 310-foot platform supply vessel. The addition of SailPlan makes Harvey Power the first PSV in North America to be equipped with a real-time emissions optimization capability. Harvey Power is designed to run on liquefied natural gas (LNG), electric battery power, and ultra-low sulfur diesel.
SailPlan will help Harvey Gulf benchmark its emissions in all three operating modes using real-world data while optimizing engine load to reduce fuel consumption and reduce emissions.
“SailPlan is thrilled to deliver a powerful, affordable and cutting-edge emissions reduction capability to Harvey Gulf,” said Jacob Ruytenbeek, CEO of SailPlan. “Harvey Gulf is a pioneer in clean tech and leader in safe, sustainable vessel operations. Our emissions monitoring and optimization technology will accelerate its ability to deliver net-zero operations as part of its ESG strategy and demonstrate how companies can both reduce their environmental footprint and achieve cost savings.”
“SailPlan is a groundbreaking innovation in sustainable vessel operations,” said Shane Guidry, CEO of 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 net-zero operations.”
