Bureau Veritas Ultra-low Emissions Notation for Jan De Nul Vessels

09 february 2021

Jan De Nul Group's newest Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers to receive new Bureau Veritas Ultra-low Emissions Notation

Bureau Veritas (BV), a world leader in testing, inspection, and certification, has developed a new notation to recognize the performance of ultra-low emission vessels (ULEVs). Jan De Nul Group’s newest Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers, SANDERUS, ORTELIUS, TRISTÃO DA CUNHA, AFONSO DE ALBUQUERQUE, DIOGO CÃO have now become the first ships to receive this recognition.

The Jan De Nul units are specifically designed for ultra-low emissions, including installation of a two-stage catalytic filter system, and can outperform the most stringent low emissions operational policies.

The ULEV notation is Bureau Veritas’ newest recognition for ultra-low emission vessels. It can be assigned to ships that exceed existing MARPOL requirements for lowering pollutant emissions. The voluntary notation accounts for air quality, including hydrocarbons, carbon, NOx and particulate matter, as well as particle numbers. For ship owners looking to distinguish their fleets, the ULEV notation helps demonstrate a real and significant commitment to environmental protection.

As well as design solutions, Jan De Nul Group is adopting 100% renewable fuel, as a certified sustainable substitute for fossil fuel made from waste flows. Since the end of 2019, its first Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger in Zeebrugge has been operating on 100% biofuel. Jan De Nul Group is considering this switch for other dredging vessels.

First published in 2019, Bureau Veritas developed the ULEV notation by carefully adapting the European Commission's Stage V policy for emissions reduction to the specific needs of sea-going vessels. Originally developed for internal combustion engines for non-road mobile machinery – including inland vessels – Bureau Veritas’ experts have reworked the existing requirements to develop an exacting set of standards for seagoing ships. Jan De Nul’s new dredgers reflect a commitment to focus on air quality and minimization of their operational impact.
