Wartsila to Supply Control System for Harvey LNG Fuelling Facility

The contract for the control system for a shore-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuelling facility in Port Fourchon, Louisiana, USA, has been awarded to Wartsila. The facility is owned by Harvey Gulf International Marine, a major owner-operator of offshore supply and specialty vessels headquartered in New Orleans. It will be used to supply fuel to Harvey Gulf’s fleet of LNG powered platform supply vessels (PSV), and will be the first source of LNG fuel in the Gulf of Mexico. The order was placed in July, 2014.

The Wartsila scope of supply comprises the control cabinets, the PLCs, computers, software programming and service commissioning. It is designed to enable the entire fuelling process to be fully controlled from the control room onboard the HARVEY ENERGY class platform supply vessels, thus making the fuelling far more efficient and safer than would be otherwise possible. Delivery is scheduled for November, 2014.

“The Harvey Gulf PSVs are to be fitted with the Wartsila LNGPac gas control system, so it was natural that the same basic technology should also be used for the shore fuelling facility. There is a growing need for an LNG fuelling infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico, so this represents an important step forward. Both Harvey Gulf and W?rtsil? are fully committed to promoting environmentally sustainable operations, and by facilitating the use of LNG as a marine fuel, this philosophy is clearly enhanced,” says Joe Amyot, Sales Director, Wartsila Ship Power.

The new fuelling facility will enable the refuelling of offshore supply vessels powered by LNG. It will also have the capability to provide a fuel source for LNG fuelled cargo ships operating in the Houston – New Orleans region.

Harvey Gulf currently has six LNG fuelled PSVs under construction, all of which will be powered by Wartsila 34DF dual-fuel engines. The vessels will also have various other Wartsila equipment onboard, including the Wartsila LNGPac gas storage and supply system. The company, additionally, has two diesel-electric construction vessels in production equipped with Wartsila 32 engines and other Wartsila solutions.
