Equinor will survey the hybrid boat market

Aug 23, 2019

Equinor plans to launch in mid-September a request for information (RFI) for hiring a hybrid boat to service operations in the Peregrino field. The operator will pursue a project that, in addition to safety and operational reliability, is aligned with concepts of innovation, digitization and automation. Equinor Brasil’s supply chain chief in South America, Rafael Tristan, explained that it will be a kind of “challenge” for the market to bring solutions such as the use of technologies to reduce carbon emissions in the atmosphere.

“We are focused on a diesel-optimized vessel that uses digital systems to monitor and control operations to reduce battery-powered diesel consumption,” Tristan said during the organized Marine and Offshore Scenarios seminar.
