TECH-INNOVATION POWERED

TECH-INNOVATION POWERED BY VDMA - MARINE EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS © Muthesius Kunsthochschule Kiel Förde 5G is a project of the Clean Autonomous Public Transport Network (CAPTN) RAYTHEON ANSCHÜTZ 5G real-time communication makes autonomous ships a reality Raytheon Anschütz, a business of Raytheon Technologies, is currently helping to create a digital working environment for autonomous ferries. The work is part of the Förde 5G project, a 5G cellular network for ship traffic on the Kiel Fjord. The project will also ultimately support the development and testing of new systems that enable ship-to-ship and shipto-shore communication, remote control of ships, and autonomous manoeuvers. Förde 5G is a project of the Clean Autonomous Public Transport Network (CAPTN) initiative and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure. Raytheon Anschütz is a member of CAPTN and is responsible for controlling and monitoring ships in real time from a land-based control centre. »Sensors aboard the autonomous ships create a vast amount of data. For example, when it comes to collision avoidance, manoeuvring or docking,« said Daniel Sommerstedt, who is responsible for strategic development and technology road maps at Raytheon Anschütz. Raytheon Anschütz develops the secure, high-performance exchange of data between the ships of the digital test field, and between the ships and the shorebased control centre. »We support personnel in the control centre with clear, immediate situational awareness and guide their decisionmaking with a new integrated navigation system at the control centre side,« Sommerstedt said. »Our development of a central component takes an important step toward partially autonomous and autonomous shipping.« Regional research institutions and companies are also participating in the CAPTN initiative to develop and implement an environmentally friendly, autonomous mobility chain for local public transport for the city of Kiel, Germany. At the heart of this project are autonomous, low-emission passenger ferries. In addition to Förde 5G, CAPTN also includes the Förde Areal project for necessary infrastructure, including development and testing of a seagoing experimental vehicle technological test platform and the landside control centre.

TECH-INNOVATION POWERED BY VDMA - MARINE EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS We support you in the EEXI/CII certification process. © Tamsen Maritim The FPB 23 customs vessel at Tamsen Maritim shipyard MAN ENGINES First MAN engines for German customs vessels For the first time in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany, MAN Engines is supplying engines for German customs vessels. They are also the first vessels suitable for fording to be used by the customs authorities. The shallow draught of just 1.20 m at a ship length of 23 m reduces the risk of running aground at low water levels. »The new vessels provide significant added value in the calm waters of the North Sea and at low tide. This enables the customs authorities to carry out their official duties in a more targeted and effective way,« says Claus Benzler, Head of Marine MAN Engines. Generous space thanks to compact engines All vessels will use twin engine systems with 12-cylinder type D2862 LE438 V-engines from MAN. They each have an output of 882 kW (1,200 hp) at 2,100 rpm and, in addition to the Lloyd’s Register classification requirements, also comply with the current IMO Tier III emission standards by using an SCR system. »The compactness of the engines, the exhaust gas after treatment from MAN Engines and ultimately their excellent power-to-weight ratio were crucial factors that perfectly meet the stringent requirements of our client, Hamburg General Customs Directorate,« explains Christian Schmoll, director of the shipyard that is building the vessels, Tamsen Maritim in Rostock. In addition to the technical challenge of the shallow draught, they engines also provide the high speed necessary for inspection operations. According to MAN Engines, the proven consumption figures of the engines clearly show that they are well below what is stipulated in the standard, not just at certain points but over a wide load range. »In the development of our marine engines, we benefit from our Group’s know-how from the truck sector. There, fuel consumption, reliability and smooth running are among the most important criteria,« says Claus Benzler.
