Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology A lot of data, a lot of opportunities Increasing levels of vessel system automation means new opportunities. Alexander Nürnberg, Senior Vice President R&D and Technology, MacGregor, is very optimistic. Only the low market is hindering a quicker uptake of innovations What is the impact of digitalization on manufacturers of deck equipment and machinery, what is their role? Alexander Nürnberg: If we consider the production process of ships in the global environment, digitalization will enable us to communicate with shipyards and suppliers much faster, in much more detail and in a more direct dialogue. Using this in a smart way will increase effciency and help reducing additional costs and loss of time due to lack of information or misunderstandings. Digitalization under the aspect of increased connectivity of sailing vessels during ship operation opens completely new models of supporting the ship operation in real time. Furthermore the machinery manufacturers get real life data and can use them to optimize their design and offering. What will the future look like, which opportunities does digitalization hold for you and the industry? Nürnberg: Connectivity will lead to much more land-based monitoring of vessels on sea. The road will lead from measuring/monitoring via remote control to a higher degree of automation and finally to increasing autonomy in operation. The autonomous ship is a vision now but we will come closer year by year following the ability to identify the environment via sensors. What does MacGregor already offer what do you have under development to shape this future? Nürnberg: The offshore sector has been a strong innovation driver in the past. Reasons were high demand for oil, safe and short return of investments and extremely expensive operations in harsh environmental conditions. Our offshore construction cranes offer full connectivity via GSM or satellite and our »on-watch« feature supports operations globally with a 24/7 availability. More than 300 cranes have been delivered including this optional feature. We will expand this to the complete product portfolio knowing that not all equipment is as mission critical as the offshore cranes. Good product features create the demand by themselves. Digitalization will mean a lot of data from different sources, formats and systems – is your solution to cooperate with others or to offer as much as possible from a single source? Nürnberg: Very good question! We feel this is too early to answer. Our current developments are considering both directions. With the right partner we will offer a system which is open to all stakeholders in shipbuilding and operation. But at the same Alexander Nürnberg time we should be able to offer normalized data of our products for integration into other systems. The market will be flooded with systems and applications in the near future. Typically a consolidation period follows and the winners will offer the integration of various data into their systems. How does the current state of the market influence the development of digitalization and connected systems? Nürnberg: Merchant and offshore markets are in a very low cycle and our customers, shipyards and ship/offshore operators, are not in an investing mood. Activities are driven by our industry and the need is acknowledged, but there are visible constraints due to lack of free cash and uncertain return of investment periods.

LEMANS NEDERLAND New winch and Panama chock products The specialist in all kind of winches, capstans, fairleads, warping-rollers and deck equipment provides new products. The new series LM-EPI winches are designed as multifunctional winches, suitable for many applications. The winches are standard build with electric, hydraulic or pneumatic drive, and high quality industrial planetary gearbox. The standard Deck Equipment Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology features include a high quality industrial planetary gearbox, a brake motor, 400 V at 50 Hz and protection IP55. The winches are oil filled and feature a two-component paint system 150 μm RAL 5002. Available options are a drum guard, a limit switch, a pressure roller, protection IP56 / T.E.N.V. iron marine execution (excluding controls), an Atex motor, alternative voltages and various motor options. Alternative dimensions and speeds as well as pulling forces are also part of the series. Next to the new branch in the winch family a new Panama chock design type A500x250x428 according to ISO13729:2012 has been introduced. The Panama chock’s mass is 452 kg, the safe working load is 90 t. M IBERCISA Supplies for tugs and rigs Ibercisa Deck Machinery has designed, manufactured and supplied equipment for Rigmarine which will be operating at the BP exploration in the Azeri Subsea Project in Azerbaijan. Another recent supply have been Svitzer’s tugboats in Brazil, namely the hydraulically driven winches MR-MAN/H/70/2x120- 64/19-S/1 with a capacity of 200 m of 64 mm cable and a chain of 19 mm diameter. Ibercisa has also designed and manufactured deck machinery for the TRAktor 3200-V tugboats designed by Robert Allan, specifically to meet Boluda’s demanding requirements for performance, propulsion equipment, accommodation facilities, tank capacities and all within a gross tonnage limit of less than 500. The deck machinery features an Ibercisa Model MR-H/200/2/300-80, double drum, hydraulic escort towing winch. The winch low speed pull at first layer is Ibercisa deck equipment in operation 75.5 t at 8.4 m per minute and rendering capacity is 120.8 t at 13.4 m per minute. The brake holding load is 200 t.

Both vessels will be built at Karstensens Skibsværft in Skagen, Denmark. The followingequipment will be supplied for the »Lingbank«: two trawl winches, model TWS-22035RE. 60 t pull, one tail end winch, model SW-7502BE. 38 t pull, two net drums, model ND-20001BE. 60 t pull and one mooring winch as well as one net sounder winch. Two anchor/mooring winches and hose reels complete the package. As for the »Clipperton«, two trawl winches, model TWS-22035RE. 60 t pull, one tail end winch, model SW-7502BE. 60 t pull and net drum, mooring winches and net sounder winches are part of the contract. Rapp marine will also deliver a trawl computer model PTS-Pentagon CbusEF. M »Clipperton« will get Rapp Marine deck package Photo: Rapp Marine HANSA International Maritime Journal – 154.
