Wärtsilä and Rio de Janeiro based Companhia Brasileira de Offshore (CBO) have signed an agreement for Decarbonisation Modelling. The objective is to support and accelerate CBO´s journey towards decarbonised operations for its fleet of offshore support vessels.
he Wärtsilä platform uses a vast bank of vessel data and machine learning algorithms, and is supported by the company’s systems modelling.
A detailed analysis will be made of the potential benefits to CBO of both short- and long-term solutions, including digitisation, energy efficiency and energy saving devices, hybridisation, and future alternative marine fuels, with a particular focus on the viability of ethanol fuel.
The intention is to have a complete report finalised before the end of 2022.
This is Wärtsilä’s first Decarbonisation Service agreement for the Oil & Gas segment in Latin America, and its second in the Americas.
We are very proud to be able to extend our close partnership with CBO through this decarbonisation agreement. We will work together to evaluate all possible solutions, taking into account their pros and cons, to find the most environmentally friendly and commercially viable alternatives for the fleet
said Hanno Schoonman, Wärtsilä Sales Director for the Americas.
