Solstad Offshore claims to have achieved a 29% fuel saving by one of its platform support vessels (PSVs) during a transit from Australia.

The savings were reportedly achieved by the 6,164-dwt Normand Leader (built 2013) which had just come off charter from Australian gas producer Woodside.

“Over the last weeks, we have worked with our partner VPS Decarbonisation to use data analytics to save as much fuel and emissions as possible during a vessel’s long transit,” said Solstad Offshore.
