The Environmental Obligation

The Environmental Obligation

We all have a common obligation for a planet in balance and that it is affected as little as possible by our activities. This is a responsibility that Remøy Management takes and has taken very seriously in our choices and activities.

It is rooted in Remøy Management's strategy, among other things, to facilitate the UN's goals for sustainable development in our daily operations and development and implementation of new technologies and procedures.

In general

In addition to the obligations contained in international conventions, Norwegian laws & regulations, established norms, recommendations and a voluntary ISO 14001 certification, Remøy Management has been at the forefront and has been responsible for several innovations / implementations that have led to lower environmental and climate impacts. Our choices have led to changes in the industries we work in and we have always been at the forefront of new technology that will reduce environmental and climate impacts.

Examples of environmental and climate measures:

  • Together with the Coast Guard, our goal was to develop Coast Guard vessels with the world's lowest environmental and climate impact. The result was what we know today as the "Barentshav" class with LNG electrical system. The planning was done in 2007 and the vessels were delivered in 2010/2011. The LNG operation of engines alone gave a reduction of approx. 90% for NOx and approx. 25% CO2 - as well as soot (SOx) and particles were more or less eliminated. Special choices were also made regarding the hulls to further reduce consumption by several percent. This work led to the construction of 3 vessels and they can still be called the world's "greenest coastguards", more than 10 years later. We were with this far ahead of our time. The ships must be able to operate on it when the renewable fuel Bio-LNG is ready.
  • We were involved in designing, building and operating a vessel with the world's largest shore power connection within its vessel class. This meant that the vessel did not have to start engines that run on fossil fuels for large parts of the ship's operating time. This ship also had DC grids, batteries, fuel monitoring installed with decision support systems to minimize fuel consumption when the ship is sailing and is in offshore operation. It is estimated that the ship has received a 50% reduction in the consumption of fossil fuels due to the electrical shore connection and other measures. The ship has also installed catalysts that remove over 90% NOx and reduce other emissions. The ship was, among other things on this basis, named "Ship of the year" in 2017.
  • We built the first service vessel for the aquaculture industry with a diesel-electric system in 2018. This system means that diesel consumption is significantly reduced, and we were able to reduce the number of engines installed. The same engines create energy for all systems on board, including the fish processing system. We chose Tier 2 engines, and prepared for the ship to become Tier 3. We installed ballast water purification even though this was not required.
  • We built the first OSV with a diesel-electric solution in 1993. This resulted in a fuel saving compared to conventional vessels in the same activity at that time of at least 25%. This has subsequently become an industry standard.
  • We built the first OSV with azimuth thruster solution in 1983. This resulted in a fuel saving compared to conventional vessels in the same activity at that time of at least 15% and increased the safety of the operation. This has subsequently become an industry standard.
 

Now and in the future:

  • We continuously encourage all vessels, employees, customers, partners to protect the environment and the climate.
  • We run processes to identify and assess the importance of climate and environmental aspects, as well as initiating programs for continuous improvement of the company's environmental performance.
  • We have a focused purchasing process, which includes criteria for recycling and substitution
    For new vessels being built, we always choose the latest available technology for reduced environmental and climate impact for the progress line and energy production on board.
  • Promote the development of onshore shore connection in general and in ports and locations where our vessels operate.
  • Focus on eliminating chemicals and gas use that can be harmful to health, the environment and the climate. We have continuous control of all chemicals and gas used in our activities, as well as perform audits and control on board our vessels to ensure that the objectives are achieved.
  • Continuous focus on minimizing plastic use on board our vessels and in the offices.
  • For new vessels, we make analyzes of the total environmental impact for choices made during construction and operation in order to be able to choose the solution that in total provides the least environmental and climate impact.
  • Promotes and implements source sorting and recycling at all levels to the greatest possible extent.
  • We install ballast water treatment on our vessels to eliminate the risk of transporting unwanted organisms to new areas.
  • We work to control indirect emissions by reducing the consumption of natural resources.
  • All our ships have the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) to plan operations to be energy efficient and for continuous improvement.
  • Familiarization and training of personnel, including environmental information and awareness - this knowledge must be continuously updated.
