SMM Tech-Hub HEADWAY Delivery of three EGCS to OOCL Recently, Headway Technology Group delivered exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) for three 4,500 TEU container carriers owned by Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) in Taiwan. It is reported that Headway has integrated the full process including 3D-scanning, designing, prefabrication, manufacturing, installation, commissioning, and service. With the seamless conjunction of each process, Headway eliminated the hazards due to lack of communication among manufacturer, designing institution and shipyard. »With the turn-key solution, Headway avoided huge potential cost that might occur during retrofitting,« said the project manager of OOCL. As for the outlook for EGCS, Headway’s EGCS project leader analyzed that – based on the recent increase of inquiry and contracts on OceanGuard EGCS – the differential price between MGO and LFO tends to increase in the coming years. It is a good time for the shipowners to reconsider the installation of an ehaust gas cleaning system, says Headway. MMG Efficiency enhancement Nowadays there are more forward-pressing reasons for an optimisation of a vessel’s efficiency than ever. Besides the obvious motivation of fuel savings, the reduction of CO2 emissions will be a requirement for the operation of the fleet. In the face of upcoming IMO regulations, the efficiency levels of almost all sea-going vessels will have to be evaluated. The introduction of EEXI and CII underlines the demand for efficiency enhancement measures. MMG supports their customers on this path with efficiency analysis based on stateof-the-art numerical simulation methods and the preparation of detailed re-design reports to provide recommended procedures for the efficiency optimisation process. As a direct contribution to this process, MMG offers propeller re-design together with the optimised fin cap solution ESCAP and can look back on a reference list of about 400 retrofit projects for numerous customers world-wide. According to the company, these measures have proven the potential for fuel savings up to 14%. We support you in the EEXI/CII certification process. Phone: Email: www.

VDMA Power-to-X for Applications It is the stated goal of the shipping industry to operate shipping with less and less climate pollution. The Paris Agreement and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) both have set ambitious targets. But with today’s technology, these goals cannot be achieved. Thus, it is necessary to identify smart ways to replace fossil fuels. The members of VDMA working group Power-to-X for Applications, are convinced that P2X is such a smart way and that it will play a key role in the future for shipping. »We are the network for P2X solutions and the cross-industry platform for exchange, communication, and cooperation. We involve stakeholders along the value chain, from the development of manufacturing processes through synthetic fuel production and raw materials using power-to-X technologies to the end user. The competition for the best concepts has only just begun, but the combustion engine will continue to play a key role in the future,« VDMA stated.
