Harvey Gulf Blazes Trail with Industry Firsts

Harvey Gulf International Marine LLC is on a roll with industry’s firsts as it received today 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.

Last week, Harvey Gulf marked 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.
