Green” Ships Call at Port of L.A.

Tuesday, August 08, 2006
The Hatsu Smart, one of Evergeen Group’s “green” mega ships, recently made its maiden call at the Port of Los Angeles alongside sister ship Hatsu Sigma – the first time two environmentally-advanced mega ships have been at dock together at the Port. The Hatsu Sigma first called at the Port of Los Angeles in December 2005. The Hatsu Sigma and Hatsu Smart are the second and third, respectively, in a series of 10 Evergreen Group S-type container vessels with environmental features that go well beyond the requirements of new and soon-to-be introduced international green standards. These vessels feature a double-skinned hull and fuel tanks positioned for optimal safety against spills and fires; “AMP” cold-ironing technology; a high capacity oily water separator that significantly reduces oil content in waste water; much larger bilge water and gray water holding tanks to reduce the need to discharge when sailing; main engines and generators that incorporate low NOx (nitrogen oxide) technology; electric-powered equipment on the vessel; low sulfur fuel-burning capability when sailing in restricted areas; and an environmentally friendly anti-fouling exterior and undercoating to minimize marine life impact.
