Three platform supply vessels (PSVs) owned by Mantenimiento Express Marítimo SAPI de CV (MEXMAR), a joint venture of Seacor Marine in Mexico, will receive “full picture” hybrid technology upgrades from Norwegian technology firm Kongsberg.
The contract will have Kongsberg delivering and installing a hybrid power and dynamic positioning upgrade designed to significantly enhance energy efficiency on board the Seacor Azteca, Seacor Warrior and Seacor Viking.
The development follows an earlier September 2017 contract for the same upgrade package on the Seacor Maya PSV, which was a step taken by MEXMAR to meet increasing industry demand to reduce the environmental footprint of offshore operations.
“We are confident in the energy saving and safety elements of Kongsberg’s hybrid technology for Seacor Maya and keen to start migration of more of our vessels to this unique, environmentally friendly and highly efficient power solution,” said Tim Clerc, Manager of Engineering, Seacor Marine.
“With the reduction of environmental impact fast becoming a key criteria for our clients, it’s important that we are able to meet the changing needs in the market, which Kongsberg technology is helping us to do.
“We will soon have four vessels operating on the most advanced hybrid powertrain available, offering capabilities and efficiency not available on any other PSVs operating in the Americas.”
