Marine solutions firm Caterpillar Marine on Wednesday (21 December) said it has agreed with Louisiana-based Jackson Offshore Operators LLC to pilot an integrated hybrid energy solution aimed at reduction of fuel consumption and diesel exhaust emissions. 

The companies will demonstrate the technology on Jackson Offshore's M/V Thunder Platform Supply Vessel, jointly working towards the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions while at the same time optimising the systems' performance.

The diesel-electric M/V Thunder will be upgraded with a hybrid energy solution to complement its power plant of 2 x Cat® 3516 and 2 x C32 generator sets. The hybrid energy solution will be incorporated into M/V Thunder with the expertise of Cat dealer, Louisiana Cat, who will oversee the installation and commissioning of the new equipment.

According to Brad Johnson, vice president of Caterpillar Marine, the vessel upgrade represents a unique chance to simultaneously collaborate with Caterpillar customers on a common environmental stewardship effort. 

"This exciting opportunity comes at the intersection of two key industries served by Caterpillar: marine transportation and oil & gas. We are very pleased to collaborate with Jackson Offshore on such innovative solutions to reduce the environmental impact," said Johnson. 

“Jackson Offshore is very excited to be partnering with Caterpillar in the development of an energy storage solution (ESS) for our offshore vessels (OSV). The primary objective of this project is to generate long-term value to our clients as they seek to meet their carbon emissions reduction initiatives,” said Lee Jackson, president and chief executive officer, Jackson Offshore Operators LLC. 

“ Jackson Offshore is very serious about reducing carbon emissions and as such we are committed to being a key part of our client’s effort in emission reduction goals. Through this collaboration with Caterpillar, we will be able to continue to provide our industry leading quality of service while meaningfully reducing fuel consumption and carbon emission.”

Caterpillar and Jackson Offshore will work together on the hybrid energy solution through 2023 to enable implementation of the fuel-saving and emissions-reducing technology.  

Upon completion of the upgrade, the performance of the M/V Thunder will be monitored closely by Caterpillar Marine and Jackson Offshore to further optimise energy use in dynamic positioning, transit and port operations.

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
