Harvey Gulf International operating vessel on RLNG
Harvey Gulf International Marine has begun to operate one of its vessels exclusively on battery power and renewable liquefied natural gas, with diesel fuel as back up.
RLNG is recaptured at farms from pig and cows. Clients who charter RLNG fueled vessels are able to obtain a carbon neutral certificate for their related operations.
Shane Guidry, Harvey Gulf CEO, said his company has five 310-foot platform supply vessels that are carbon neutral. This is aimed at oil companies that want to reduce emissions while drilling for oil.
Harvey has ordered 25 Ford F-150 Lightning electric trucks for its employee fleet. All will replace existing combustion engine vehicles and be used to support de-carbonization efforts.
