The just-launched vessel, the HARVEY SUPPORTER, scheduled for delivery this November, will be the first OSV in the U.S. to be constructed to the demanding standards required for "ENVIRO+, Green Passport (GP)" certification by ABS. This, says Harvey makes her the most environmental friendly OSV in Gulf of Mexico.
Among other enhancements, the Green 300 ft vessels will be exclusively constructed with certified environmentally friendly materials that can either be completely recycled, or broken down without harm to the environmental, will contain high-tech alarms for fuel tanks and containment systems, and will be continuously manned with a certified Environmental Officer.
The just-ordered 310 ft light construction vessel, the HARVEY DEEP-SEA will also be ENVIRO+, Green Passport (GP) certified.
It will be equipped with an active heave-compensated 165-ton knuckle boom crane capable of lifting/setting 100 tons at depths up to 10,000 ft.
The HARVEY DEEP-SEA is scheduled for delivery in April 2013.
Harvey Gulf also announced that its next phase of Green construction will include 2 dual fuel 300' PSV's that will be powered by LNG, or diesel. Harvey Gulf will meet with the U.S. Coast Guard concerning the regulations for this new class of vessel and plans to begin construction as soon as the regulations are releasedr, which is anticipated early this summer.
