• Batteries in offshore support vessels – Pollution, climate impact and economics 

      Lindstad, Haakon Elizabeth; Eskeland, Gunnar; Rialland, Agathe Isabelle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      This paper assesses the pros and the cons of installing batteries on offshore support vessels. These vessels are specially designed to provide services to oil and gas operations, such as anchor handling, supply and subsea ...
    • Environmental regulations in shipping: Policies leaning towards globalization of scrubbers deserve scrutiny 

      Lindstad, Haakon Elizabeth; Eskeland, Gunnar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      ABSTRACT Emission regulations for Sulphur oxides (SOx) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) are motivated by health- and other environmental objectives in local and regional settings, while global warming concerns motivate policies ...
    • Sulphur Abatement Globally in Maritime Shipping 

      Lindstad, Elizabeth; Rehn, Carl Fredrik; Eskeland, Gunnar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In 2016, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) decided on global regulations to reduce sulphur emissions to air from maritime shipping starting 2020. The regulation implies that ships can continue to use residual ...
    • The impact of regional environmental regulations on empirical vessel speeds 

      Ådland, Roar Os; Fonnes, Gro; Jia, Haiying; Daae Lampe, Ove; Strandenes, Siri Pettersen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Economic theory suggests that the use of more expensive low-sulphur fuel within an Emission Control Area (ECA) should result in lower vessel speeds. The objective of this paper is to investigate empirically, for the first ...

    • When energy efficiency is secondary: The case of Offshore Support Vessels 

      Ådland, Roar Os; Cariou, Pierre; Wolff, Francois-Charles (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Offshore Support Vessels (OSVs) deal with time-sensitive logistics and sophisticated marine operations for high-value offshore oil and gas installations. We investigate whether this creates preferences that effectively ...
