Tug and barge service provider Harley Marine NY, a subsidiary of Harley Marine Services, is decreasing emissions in New York Harbour by re-powering the HMS Liberty.

The company will replace the older engines and generators on the tug to reduce NoX and particulate emissions in the New York Harbor by 40t a year.

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey is supporting the project and has expanded a grant to mitigate a portion of the financial burden to Harley Marine.

This upgrade is part of Harley Marine and the Port Authority’s joint efforts to promote an eco-friendly waterfront and environment, Harley Marine said.
