Van Oord reduces fleet emissions

Sustainable energy

The NetherlandsVan Oord is making a fleet energy transition with Fuelsave FS Marine+ solution.

The FS Marine+, a patented solution to reduce both fuel consumption and harmful emissions of marine diesel-powered engines, will be installed on subsea rock installation vessel Bravenes. 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.

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.

Intermediate targets

Van Oord is committed to becoming carbon-neutral by 2050, in line with the Paris Agreement. The collaboration with Fuelsave facilitates a sustainable and viable initiative to reduce the carbon footprint of the new and existing fleet.

The company set intermediate targets to reduce carbon emissions by 2.5% a year. It aims to reach zero sulphur oxides emissions (SOx) and reduce nitrogen oxides emissions (NOx) by at least 80% by 2050 compared to 2019 levels.
