CBO Group and Wärtsilä sign decarbonisation service agreement

On 29 September 2022 the technology group Wärtsilä and Rio de Janeiro-based Companhia Brasileira de Offshore (CBO) announced the signing of an agreement for Decarbonisation Modelling.

The objective is to support and accelerate CBO´s journey towards decarbonised operations for its fleet of offshore support vessels, which is one of the largest in its segment in Brazil.

The advanced Wärtsilä platform utilises a vast bank of vessel data and machine learning algorithms, and is supported by the company’s extensive in-house experience in systems modelling.

A detailed analysis will be made of the potential benefits to CBO of both short- and long-term solutions, including digitisation, energy efficiency and energy saving devices, hybridisation, and future alternative marine fuels, with a particular focus on the viability of ethanol fuel.

The intention is to have a complete report finalised before the end of this year.

This is Wärtsilä’s first Decarbonisation Service agreement for the Oil & Gas segment in Latin America, and its second in the Americas.

Over the years, Wärtsilä has accumulated a number of important milestones  serving the maritime industry.

The most recent of these was the contracting of a hybrid battery solution for CBO, the first ever for a Latin American shipping company, thereby emphasising the forward thinking of both companies.

This system will be installed on the PSV CBO Wiser (vessel with Wärtsilä project) which is operating for Equinor Brasil as a result of a win-win negotiation for its long-term charter agreement.
