Marine services provider Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO) has penned a deal with a major oil and gas firm in the US Gulf of Mexico to install a battery-on-board (BoB) system for a PSV.

The use of the sustainable BoB technology is expected to help reduce carbon footprint during the PSV operations and port standby periods.

US-based ECO is working alongside its affiliate Marine Technologies to use proprietary, class-certified automation. This integrated solution between a marine propulsion and battery system will be the first of its kind to allow the PSV to work on one generator in the 500-meter zone.

“In pursuit of our long term vision for renewable energy development and reduced emissions, ECO strives to improve efficiency through technology and innovation. Receiving the first-ever contract for battery technology in the Jones Act market demonstrates the close relationship we maintain with our clients and their trust in working with ECO,” said Dino Chouest, executive vice president of ECO.

“Through these efforts, we can reduce our carbon footprint and protect the environment for future generations, while our technological innovations make our customers’ offshore operations more efficient and cost effective,” Chouest said.
