Mammoet transports topsides using low-carbon HVO fuel

Mammoet has executed its first operation using low-carbon HVO fuel. The operation, to transport two topsides, involved Mammoet crews carrying out a transport for HSM Offshore. Two topsides – Southwark and Blythe – were transported as part of the installation of normally unmanned (NUI) platforms located in UK waters in the southern North Sea.

HVO is an alternative to traditional diesel, made primarily from waste and residues, such as waste cooking oil. Because this diesel is both derived from renewables and reduces waste it is considered 90% carbon-free. It also gives off fewer direct exhaust emissions, including a reduction in nitrogen oxides.

The topsides, weighing 900 t and 1150 t, were moved using 22 axle lines from Mammoet’s standard SPMT fleet.
