The “Solstad Green Operations” campaign where we encourage our vessels to save fuel has been through a record quarter. Normans Master took once again the top position with 440 “SGO” recorded in Q2-2014. The crew on Normand Master has been working with improving the reporting frequency this year, Q2-2014 was once again a success for this vessel, and the “Greenest vessel award” comes as no surprise.
The “Solstad Green Operations” campaign has a new vessel on top for the first quarter in 2014. The crew on Normand Master has been working with improving the reporting frequency the last year. Q1-2014 was a success on board, and the crew was rewarded with the “Greenest vessel award” for the same quarter. Normand Master has been operating for Petrobras in Brazil.
Normand Progress has for the first time taken the top position in our quarterly SGO competition. Normand Progress has been operating in West Africa, doing a variety of work including ROV work.
Yet again, Normand Pacific managed to win the “Solstad Green Operations” campaign with the highest number of SGO registered this quarter. With 486 SGO recorded, Normand Pacific still holds the “Greenest ship” position in the company. The crew have shown its commitment to the environment same time shown that systematic SGO approach can be beneficial.
Normand Pacific is still on top, with a record high number of 538 Green Operations in Q2 - 2013 the crew have shown its commitment to the environment same time shown that systematic SGO approach can be beneficial.
Normand Pacific is still on top, with 441 Green Operations in Q1 - 2013 the crew swept away all opponents. It comes as no surprise that they maintained the lead from earlier this year.
Normand Pacific is again on top, with 521 Green Operations in Q4 - 2012 the crew on this vessel has shown determination and will to climb all the way to the top. Looking at the Solstad Green Operations report from Pacific we can see that they have used every possible opportunity to save fuel, and in average every record has given them 0,9 SGO points, but we also find records with as little as 70 liters in savings, but still 0.1 SGO as a result. If we combine this with the good reporting culture on Pacific we get good results this quarter.
Normand Atlantic with 272 Green Operations won the quarterly competition this time. Looking at the Solstad Green Operations report we can see that Normand Atlantic's focus area has been on the main engine, like on board many of our vessels. This category has become the most popular category, maybe it is because of the immediate effect it has on the fuel consumption. Normand Atlantic has been doing many rig operations this quarter, despite the high level of safety and complexity in these operations they have managed to keep a high environmental focus on board, which is very good.
Looking through our Emission database for the previous 3 months we have a winner - the Normand Pacific. The vessel has been on a fairly strict day schedule, and have been using the SGO menu the same way, which has resulted in many SGO registrations (537), applause to you. Respectively second and third place we find Normand Atlantic and Normand Jarl with a nice score of 351 and 263. Normand Corona, Normand Vester and Normand Baltic are fighting for the title in the PSV SGO class, they had all high numbers in Q1 and it looks like they have managed to maintain pressure in Q2, which is very good. Looking at the OSV and AHTS class, we find, not unexpectedly, Normand Pacific, and Normand Atlantic. Normand Atlantic has managed to accumulate 351 Green Operations. Nor Chief (AHTS class) has for the moment a steady course and sits nicely on third place in her group, this is a very good achievement, considering that they have just started with SGO. In December we will have a closer look at the class winners, and it will be interesting to see who will be on top then.
