Industry Database

A new research/expedition vessel will be equipped to collect and melt up to 5t of plastic daily with minimal emissions.

The 181.6m REV, owned by Rosellinis Four-10 and designed by Espen Øino in collaboration with VARD Design, will use the VARD SeaQ ‘Green Pilot’ system for monitoring COx, SOx and NOx emissions.

“REV is just one example of our full commitment to finding solutions to pressing environmental challenges,” stated George Gill, project director, who represents Rosellinis Four-10.

2020 launch

Due to launch in summer 2020, the vessel will use the Evac Complete Cleantech Solution, consisting of vacuum collection systems for sanitary waste, dry- and food waste collection and treatment systems, and wastewater treatment systems, including a membrane bioreactor with nutrient removal.

Mr Gill added: “It was only natural that we’d include environmentally responsible solutions like those that Evac delivers.”

In a bid to achieve optimal efficiency, the vessel features a diesel electric engine with an additional 3MW lithium ion battery pack for peak shaving.

It will also employ heat recovery on main generators and the incinerator, to be fed back into hot water circuits and HVAC.

Robust BWMS

A ballast water management system will prevent cross contamination of species across ocean zones and the ship is built under DNV-GL SILENT-R notation for maximum prevention of underwater noise pollution.

Rosellinis Four-10 is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kjell Inge Røkke’s family company TRG.
