Schifffahrt | Shipping

Schifffahrt | Shipping completed in autumn of 2017. This life-sized replica will be built by Wuchang SB Industry Group to be moored in a theme-park in Sichuan where visitors will be able to experience the collision through a high-tech simulation. Shipyards The leading cruise shipbuilding company by gross tons is the Meyer Group comprising the Papenburg shipyard, the wholly-owned Turku plant and the Warnemünde factory which contributes engine room blocks. Fincantieri uses five shipyards in Italy and is also majority owner of the Vard group of shipbuilders. No. 3 in the world league is the still Korean-owned STX France of St. Nazaire, builder of most MSC vessels and the »Oasis«-class of RCCL. The majority in the yard is still for sale and Fincantieri is the preferred bidder. However, the French state wants to keep its 33% of shares in a multiple ownership. If Fincantieri acquires also the majority of STX France, the ranking will chance again. While Fincantieri is still the main provider of Carnival tonnage, Meyer Papenburg and Meyer Turku now have the 180,000 gt, 5,000 pax class in their order books. The MV Werften in Eastern Germany make good progress to get a place among the leading builders. Lloyd Werft of Bremerhaven, like MV Werften owned by Genting, will not build cruise ships but focus on repair and mega yachts. For the inexperienced Waigaoqiao shipyard it will take a longer time up to the first delivery, but as a member in a Chinese-Italian-American joint venture chance s are good to become a successful competitor. Mitsubishi has not accepted further contracts and will disappear from the listing in a few months. The other five shipyards are focusing on smaller tonnage and are profiting from the current run for expedition cruise ships. The global order book is once more the highest ever, summing up to 185,000 lower beds, the options and letters of intent not included. It stood above 80,000 beds just before the terror attacks of New York and close to 100,000 before the world financial and An »emerging market«: expedition vessels Top cruise shipyards and orderbooks Shipyard Ships GT Opt.

By mid 2015 it reached 120,000 and surpassed the 150,000 barrier early 2016. A further increase is still possible, however, the deliveries will also increase this year. The graph »Capacity on order« shows that the ship operators react carefully if demand lessens like in 2001 and 2008. They wait over years to be sure that demand has really recovered before ordering new tonnage. Is this still the case? Other shipping markets show that it can be too much one day. The usual capacity growth has been 20,000 new beds per year before 2010. The current order book stretches over more than five years, with Letters of Intent or Memorandums of Understanding up to 2026. In 2017 and 2018, nearly 30,000 beds will be added and 45,000 more in 2019. The traditional markets of America and Europe will hardly absorb so many new beds, but will the Chinese market?

Cruise Shipping News Schifffahrt | Shipping LNG Bureau Veritas classifies RoPax ferry »Megastar« On 24 January Meyer Turku Shipyard delivered the RoPax ferry »Megastar« to Tallink. She will sail between Helsinki and Tallinn and is setting new standards regarding environmental aspects and comfort. The vessel was built under Bureau Veritas classification and has Ice Class 1a as well as Cleanship and Green passport notation. Tecnitas, the consulting arm of Bureau Veritas, has carried out the HAZ- ID workshop which is mandatory according to the IGF code. The 212 m vessel has a capacity of 2.850 PAX and operates at a speed of 27 kn. She is equipped with one of the largest dual fuel plants ever installed and the first ferry with tanks located inside the hull. The power generation plant consists of three Wärtsilä 12V50DF and two Wärtsilä 6DF50 engines with a total output in gas mode of abt. 46 MW. The LNG is stored in two horizontal IMO Type C tanks which are of double shell design, vacuum insulated and have a capacity of 300 m3 each. In the tank connections space (CTS) in front of the tanks all connections as well as the vaporization units are integrated. The vessel has two bunker stations and can be bunkered by truck in Helsinki and Tallinn. Using LNG as fuel, the »Megastar« fulfills all known future emission regulations regarding NO x and SO x. In addition to that no soot particles are created and CO2 emissions are reduced. Sea and gas trials as well as bunkering have been carried out successfully so that the vessel could do the maiden voyage on 29 th January after less than two years construction time.

The Italian shipbuilder was awarded an order from Norwegian Cruise Line for the construction of four new generation cruise ships with an option for additional two, for the NCL brand. The value of each ship is approximately 800 mill. €, with one delivery per year from 2022 to 2025, stretching to 2027 in case of confirmation of the option. The ships are intended to form the backbone of the future NCL fleet, being about 140,000 gt, almost 300 m long, and accommodating 3,300 guests. The order is based on a prototype project developed by Fincantieri. Focus was set on energy effciency. In early february, Fincantieri recieved an order from Carnival Corporation to build two more vessels for its brands Holland America Line and Princess Cruises. Those vessels are scheduled for delivery in 2021 and 2022. Additionaly, the shipbuilding corporation’s subsidiary Vard will build two gas-powered 130 m ferries for Norwegian operator Torghatten. Vard has also signed a Memorandum of Understading with an undisclosed cruise operator concering the construction of an 145 m expedition cruise vessel scheduled for delivery in 2019. M NORSEPOWER Flettner rotors for »Viking Grace« Norsepower will install its Rotor Sail Solution on board LNG-fuelled cruise ferry »Viking Grace«. The 57,565 GT ferry currently operates in the archipelago between Turku (Finland) and Stockholm (Sweden) and is already one of the most environmentally-friendly cruise ferries. With the addition of Norsepower’s technology the vessel will further reduce its emissions, fuel burn and fuel costs, reducing carbon emissions by about 900 t annually; equivalent to cutting 300 t of LNG fuel per year. Preparations for the retrofit are underway, with the installation scheduled to take place during Q2 of 2018. »Viking Grace« is set to be retrofitted with one medium-sized Norsepower Rotor Sail unit that is 24 m in height and 4 m in diameter, making it the first ever global LNG/ wind electric propulsion hybrid ship. The Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution, which can be installed on new vessels or retrofitted on existing ships without offhire costs, is a modernised version of the Flettner rotor, a spinning cylinder that uses the Magnus effect to harness wind power to propel a ship. The solution is fully automated and senses whenever the wind is strong enough to deliver fuel savings at which point the rotors start automatically. M The rotor sail will reduce CO 2 emissions by about 900 t p.a. Photo: Norsepower HANSA International Maritime Journal – 154. Jahrgang – 2017 – Nr. 3 47
