A fascinating discussion on the developments, applications and practicalities of using HVO fuels took place on day one of Seawork Connect.
Marine Civils Live is a series of bitesize online conferences discussing ‘Decarbonisation - what it means for you and how it can help your business.’ in association with CECA (Civil Engineering Contractors Association) and supported by CPA (Construction Plant-hire Association).
Virtual attendees at today’s event heard and saw presentations from James Maclean of Land & Water, Simon Lawford of Crown Oil and Andy Powell of the Environment Agency, introduced by Peter Crosland of CECA and moderated by Chris Cassley of CPA.
Questions came through thick and fast; Can I mix HVO and diesel in the same tank? Has anyone used HVO on large scale projects? How long does HVO keep? Do I have to make modifications to my current engine? What will happen to my existing plant fleet? What is the general availability of HVO? What is the best way to store HVO? Is HVO a genuine answer to emissions and how does it affect CO2 circularity?
If you weren’t able to catch Marine Civils Live ‘Decarbonisation - what it means for you and how it can help your business.’ today, on the first of three days of Seawork Connect, or you would like to repeat view, the session will be available imminently at SeaworkConnect “On Demand” for the next fourteen days.
