Digitalisation and new technology are going to make Havila’s Green ships a leader in terms of sustainability, reduced emissions, increased safety and efficiency.
Havila Shipping’s competence from years of record newbuild activity and innovations is now being used for leading Havila’s Green ships into the future. Through cooperation with customers, technology companies and academia, we develop tomorrow’s ships for the energy industry.
This has already provided results. Havila Shipping has some of the cleanest vessels in the offshore fleet.
Havila Shipping was among the first to install battery packages on-board their vessels. Fuel consumption is carefully monitored. Heat recovery is utilised, ships are prepared for shore power and the fleet has environmental accounting. The results are good news for both environment and clients.
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (officially known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs). It's now five years on, and we have more work then ever to do. These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
Batteries often enable ships to use just one instead of two engines. Batteries lead the way and save on both fuel and emissions. Average annual numbers for a vessel’s operation in dynamic positioning speaks of an 18 per cent cut in fuel consumption.
Digitalisation and detailed monitoring provide accurate feedback on how much fuel is being used in various operations at different speeds. That is fundamental to Havila’s crew being able to carry out the good job in adapting timetable, speed and operating with optimal energy efficiency.
It strengthens knowledge competence and provides both human learning and machine learning that are used towards more secure and efficient operation.
This saves fuel and CO2 emissions when ships are by shore but also caters for zero emissions and clean air in the harbour. In addition, it is good news in relation to the working environment when crew work and live on-board a completely silent ship.
The numbers for the environmental accounting are used for making fact-based decisions and to secure documented improvements.
The aim is a continuously reduced environmental footprint. Havila Shipping’s vessels will justify the colour green.
