DIGITAL HUB STADT | SH-DEFENCE Modularized, green and future-proof propulsion Stadt and SH-Defence have signed a cooperation agreement and integrate their technologies to increase modularisation of power generation and electric propulsion technologies. With its patented propulsion technology, Stadt meets environmental requirements, and can supply Zero-emission electric propulsion to Commercial and Naval vessels. To make sure that existing and new low and zero emission power sources like battery, fuel cells and alternative fuels can be installed, upgraded or exchanged, Stadt clearly sees that requirements for modularisation will be a »vital design criteria for future ships«, the company states. Therefore, Stadt’s Lean Propulsion is designed to be efficient, reliant and noise free for the lifetime of the vessel. The system can be interfaced with future and new power sources »of any kind«, according to Stadt. SH Defence is the inventor and manufacturer of The Cube frame system, a »future-proof, flexible and cost-efficient solution« that enables a quick and modularbased reconfiguration of vessels for many purposes by loading and unloading The Cube modules. The system is originally developed for naval vessels but will also be available for Commercial vessels. Stadt will integrate its modular energy and electric propulsion system with The Cube-system and be »Cube Certified«. © Stadt KVH New service for IoT smart shipping KVH has expanded its KVH Watch suite of maritime IoT solutions with Cloud Connect, a service designed to utilize advanced edge computing to enable integration of maritime applications and digital services for smart shipping. Cloud Connect is designed to address the complexity of managing data from hundreds of onboard sensors with a comprehensive package containing data source definitions, data mappings, and associated dashboards. An onboard Cloud Connect Edge Server aggregates and processes data from vessel sensors and provides a containerized, hybrid cloud architecture to enable downsampling, data storage, and data access for analysis, cloud-based data reporting, and dynamic visualizations. KVH Watch Cloud Connect is designed to deliver an edge-tocloud IoT connectivity solution for the many stakeholders in the maritime industry. Vessel owners and operators can see operational data in real time, such as noon reports, MRV reports, or EEXI compliance; they can also see how each system and ship performs based on key performance indicators. Equipment manufacturers and multi-card service providers can monitor onboard equipment to support service contracts and warranties via data analytic reporting tools and customizable dashboards. Vessel performance consultancies can rapidly deploy digital services, condition-based alarms, and dashboards for fuel savings and operational efficiencies throughout a fleet using KVH blueprints written to the ISO 19848 standard normalizing data channel names for comparisons. KVH Watch is designed with stakeholder budgets in mind as a Connectivity as a Service (CaaS) program offered for an all-inclusive monthly fee with no equipment purchase CAPEX or maintenance costs for the Watch terminal, Cloud Connect equipment, or Remote Expert Intervention equipment for the subscription duration. 3D METALFORGE | ABS Printed ship parts becoming a reality ABS, ConocoPhillips Polar Tankers, Sembcorp Marine and 3D Metalforge have taken a significant and tangible step to make additive manufacturing (AM) – also known as 3D printing – a reality in the marine industry through a joint development project. Parts fabricated by AM and installed on an oil tanker by Sembcorp Marine six months ago have been validated to be in good working condition. This AM project started in February 2021 with the fabrication and lab-testing of functional additive manufactured parts, which were then installed on board the oil tanker »Polar Endeavour«. After six months in operation, all parts have since been retrieved and inspected by the vessel’s crew, followed by a remote survey by ABS. Additive Manufacturing or 3D printing is the fabrication of parts by adding material layer by layer. It means products and components can be fabricated locally or potentially on board ships and offshore assets, shrinking the supply chain and lead times for specialized and complex parts, introducing new efficiencies driven by design innovation, reduced manufacturing time, and improvements in parts availability. Traditional parts used in shipbuilding and repair are manufactured via casting or forging techniques. For this project, the consortium utilized AM to fabricate three types of parts that meet or may even exceed conventionally manufactured products in terms of quality. ABS has now approved these additive manufactured spare parts after successful onboard testing on an oil tanker. The three parts were: Gear set and gear shaft for boiler fuel supply pump; flexible coupling for marine sanitation devices pump; an ejector nozzle for fresh water generator which increases the fluid velocity to transform high static pressure into velocity pressure. 48 HANSA – International Maritime Journal 01 | 2022
