Harley Marine NY Reduces Emissions

Friday, August 14, 2009

Harley Marine NY, a subsidiary company of Harley Marine Services, Inc. is actively reducing emissions in New York Harbor. The HMS Liberty, a tug boat part of the Harley Marine NY Fleet, was repowered at Feeney Shipyard in Kingston, New York. During the repower, the 1970's vintage Detroit 149 Series engines and 3-71 generator sets were replaced with new, EPA Tier II Compliant, Cummins QSK38 engines and John Deere powered generator sets.

Replacing the older engines and generators on the tug will reduce NoX and particulate emissions in the New York Harbor by 40 tons per year. This will also result in fuel savings as the newer equipment will be more efficient. The project was backed and supported by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, and they have extended a grant to relieve some of the financial constraints to Harley Marine NY.

Working together, the Ports and HMNY are investing in a “green” waterfront and environment with this conversion. Harley Marine Services commends both ports for being forward thinking and partners in this process. The conversion is part of Harley Marine Services’ environmental management system program to continually lessen its environmental footprint and support a “green” operation throughout its family of companies.
