Eight major offshore support vessel owners have been able to slash 10,000 tonnes of C02 emissions over a two-month trial period by sharing operational data.

The ambitious campaign, which involved over 130 vessels was initiated by private equity-backed data and fuels specialist VPS.

Shipowners participating in the project comprised Solstad Offshore, Simon Mokster Shipping, Boskalis Offshore Energy, Rem Offshore, Tidewater, Skansi Offshore, North Sea Shipping and DOF.
