Cleaning up dirty footprints

New engines, exhaust cleaning systems and improved propulsion train arrangements will result in vessel emissions reduction for the Port of Amsterdam.

Port of Amsterdam and Damen Shipyards have signed a contract to convert the Damen Stan Tug 1907 PA1 Harbour Patrol Vessel. The conversion includes the installation of new engines that comply with emission standards with IMO tier III as well as EUROVI stage 5. A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) system will be installed as well as Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), which filters out nitrogen oxide from emission gasses.

The vessel will be equipped with a heat recovery system to heat the accommodation and the bridge. The bridge insulation will be improved, including replacement of all glass. New rudders and propellers will be installed, and the anchor lockers modified. The vessel was built by Damen in 2013 and has been in active service since. Post-conversion, PA1 will be back in operation in June this year.

Rijkshavenmeester (National Harbour Master) Milembe Mateyo, Chief Investment Officer Dorine Bosman and Manager Operations port office & technical services Stuart Kemp of Port of Amsterdam happily signed the contract for the conversion of PA1 and the maintenance of three other Damen vessels with Director Jos van Woerkum and Design & Proposal Engineer John Krielaart of Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld, together with Services & Operations Manager Leon Fijnekam and Project Manager Roel Foolen.

The new contract continues the long-lasting co-operation between Damen Shipyards and the Port of Amsterdam. In addition to thhe conversion of the PA1, Damen Shipyards has also won the maintenance contract for the three other Damen vessels in the Port of Amsterdam fleet; two Stan Tug 1907s and a Stan Tender 1905
