Port Fourchon, the land base for multiple offshore energy support service companies, is set to become the first port in the world to have a precise 360-degree view of its emissions, reports Marine Log. The Greater Lafourche Port Commission (GLPC) has partnered with Reston, Va.-based SailPlan to deploy its emissions measurement technology throughout Port Fourchon.

SailPlan’s platform—cloud API, dashboard, and mobile apps—synchs with emissions monitors to show real-time CO2, CH4, NOx, SO2, H20, and PM level. The use of monitors means that the system is based on measurements, not estimates.

One vessel operator using SailPlan is Shane Guidry’s Harvey Gulf International Marine. SailPlan is helping Harvey Gulf benchmark its emissions using real-world data while optimizing engine load to reduce fuel consumption and reduce emissions. Read the entire story.
