Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology HANSA TECH-HUB BUREAU VERITAS Fuel consumption and emissions reporting in one app My Fuel Consumption (MFC) from Bureau Veritas guides owners through the regulatory requirements of IMO’s data collection system (DCS) and EU monitoring reporting and verification (MRV) requirements. © Bureau Veritas The latest phase of MFC released now enables easy reporting of fuel consumption and/or CO2 emissions data with the IMO and EU schemes – with no double booking. Available to owners and managers of both BV and non-BV classed ships, My Fuel Consumption is a secure cloud based web application available on desktop, mobile and tablet. Free of charge it is available on VeriStar, the Bureau Veritas client portal. All that is required is a contract for IMO DCS or MRV services provided by BV. MFC ensures that vessel fuel consumption data is automatically registered for the different schemes. Automatic calculations based on entered data inputs create reports in the required formats for each reporting scheme. LLOYD’S REGISTER New »Zero-Emission Vessels« study released Lloyd’s Register (LR) and University Maritime Advisory Services (UMAS) have released »Zero-Emission Vessels Transition Pathways«, a study that aims to show what is needed to enable the transition, both at the ship and supply infrastructure level, to deliver zero-emission vessels (ZEVs). The study indicates that 2020 – 2030 is the most significant decade, stressing the urgency for early action. There is still uncertainty when choosing one fuel, one technology and one route and therefore this decade will need to see full-scale pilots and prototypes, the development of policy, standards and rules, and will be characterised by first adopters driven by consumer pressure. In the 2030s the evolution of shipping’s fuel mix is closely linked to the evolution of the wider energy system, so a clear signal needs to be given to the potential fuel producers. We may experience a growing share of biofuels in the 2020s with on-going efforts to develop fuels produced from Renewable electricity, referred to as electro-fuels, resulting in a major shift to electro-fuels in the 2040s and 2050s. LR and UMAS expect that by 2050, and beyond consolidation of the market, to see an end fuel mix dominated by one family of fuels. DNV GL Tall ship »Sea Cloud Spirit« gets class © Sea Cloud DNV GL has been awarded the contract to classify the passenger ship »Sea Cloud Spirit« built by Metalships & Docks in Vigo (Spain). The ship, which was commissioned by Hamburg-based shipping company Sea Cloud Cruises, is designed to meet the growing demand from both independent travellers and the charter market, particularly in the Caribbean and Mediterranean. The three-mast ship »Sea Cloud Spirit« will be 138 m long and will have 69 outside cabins, including 25 with balconies. The planning office Partner Ship Design from Hamburg is responsible for the design of the ship›s interior. The »Sea Cloud Spirit« is to set the sails in summer 2020. 74 HANSA International Maritime Journal – 156. Jahrgang – 2019 – Nr. 3

Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology RUDDER PROPELLERS Schottel-Drives for Hamburg’s new fire-fighting vessel Europe’s most modern fire-fighting boat is equipped with Schottel rudder propellers and Schottel transverse thrusters to enable maximum manoeuvrability and optimum efficiency. The vessel, which is operated by Flotte Hamburg, a subsidiary of Hamburg Port Authority, and built at the Fassmer shipyard, will be deployed in the Port of Hamburg. 44.14 m long »Branddirektor Westphal« will be powered by two Caterpillar C18 with 500 kW each. Each engine drives a 360° controllable rudder propeller SRP 190 FP, which has a propeller diameter of 1,350 mm and an input power of 500 kW. The boat achieves a free speed of 12 kn. In combination with both rudder propellers, two electrically driven transverse thrusters STT 170 with 330 kW each enable optimum manoeuvrability and DP capability. ANTIFOULING Hempel launches powerful and flexible new coating Coatings manufacturer Hempel launched Atlantic+, designed to protect the hull from fouling throughout service intervals of up to 60 months. Ensuring complete operational flexibility, it is suitable for all vessel types and water temperatures. Atlantic+ incorporates a powerful biocide package and proven binder system. This ensures progressive and controlled self-polishing. For mechanical strength the new coating is reinforced with Hempel’s patented microfibre technology at a higher level of the cargo hold coating – Hempadur Ultra Strength Fibre. The science behind the technology involves introducing an internal skeleton of fibres into the paint to enhance mechanical strength ensuring protection from fouling on areas exposed to impact and abrasion; improving overcoatibility; reducing the areas to blast; and decreasing dry docking costs. © Schottel HANSEATICSOFT Avoiding accidents at sea A recent study by the Seafarers International Research Centre (SIRC) into the causes of maritime accidents between 2002 and 2016, found that inadequate risk management was the leading cause of almost 56% of all accidents. Technology also featured prominently in accident reports, with ineffective use of technology cited as a key concern, representing almost 17% of cases. Fatigue amongst crew members was another big factor, contributing to just over 10% of all accidents. Hanseaticsoft has developed cloudbased solutions that require little to no training, and the company is helping shipping companies with management, maintenance and administrative processes. Web-based Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM) allows information to be centralised, processed and accessed in real time using apps and mobile devices. Modules such as Maintenance, Circulars and Rest Hours within CFM are helping companies reduce the risk of accidents. For example, the Maintenance module gives full visibility of the fleet status so companies have control over the maintenance jobs of the fleet, and the Rest Hours module ensures crew take the correct rest periods – thus preventing fatigue. Managing Director, Alexander Buchmann, says: »Inadequate training of crew, long hours and ineffective maintenance can lead to accidents. Our software ensures that tasks are handled correctly and offers the crew a knowledge base for certain tasks. For example, providing safety procedures, collections of manuals or circulars that can be sent from the office directly to all vessels. Reminders ensure crew don’t miss important tasks and maintenance.« • Drahtseile • Tauwerk • Festmacher • CASAR Bordkranseile • Anschlagmittel • Prüflasttest bis 1.000 t • Segelmacherei • Taklerei • Montage Walter Hering KG Porgesring 25 22113 Hamburg Telefon: 040 – 73 61 72 -0 eMail: HANSA International Maritime Journal – 156.
