Harvey Gulf hits another milestone with LNG-powered vessel

Harvey Gulf International Marine achieved another milestone in maritime history by receiving the first ABS Classification Certificate and the first USCG Certificate of Inspection for a vessel powered by LNG.

The M/V Harvey Energy is the first LNG-powered vessel in service in North America, the company said in a statement. Harvey Gulf recently performed the first truck to vessel transfer of LNG, the first vessel to bunker LNG and was the first U.S. Flagged LNG-powered vessel to enter into port while being powered by LNG.

The vessel will be based out of Port Fourchon, LA and will immediately begin its long-term charter role.

The M/V Harvey Energy built at GCSG in Gulfport, MS is based on the Vard Marine 1 311 design and is 310x64x24.5 ft powered by 3 Wartsila 6L34DF dual fuel gensets providing 7.5MW of power fueled by Wartsila’s LNGPac system.
