Tech-Hub HANSA TECH-HUB WINGD Clean fuel research with injector concept WinGD (Winterthur Gas & Diesel) has bolstered its investment in fuel research with the development of a flexible injection system. The system was developed as part of HERCULES 2, the collaborative European engine research project which concluded in 2018. It features an adjustable needle to allow for the injection of lower density liquid fuels, including promising alcohol fuels like methanol and ethanol, as well as conventional fuels including heavy fuel oil and marine diesel oil. WinGD installed the fuel flexible injector on its RTX-6 engines in order to test ethanol combustion. The company confirmed that ethanol fuel (with a small amount of diesel injected as a pilot fuel) reduces the formation of NO x and smoke emissions. LPG FUEL SUPPLY SYTEM ClassNK grants AiP for KHI solution The classification society ClassNK granted an Approval in Principle (AiP) based on its Rule Part N which adopts IGC Code and its guidelines for »Ships Using Low-Flashpoint Fuels« to Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) for their LPG fuel supply system. KHI has developed the system utilizing its expertise gained from the design and construction of LPG carriers, LNG carriers, and LNG fueled ships as well as the design and production of marine engines. The main features are: cyclical system design that is compatible with propane and butane and circulates LPG in a pressurized state capable of usage at normal ambient temperature, establishing a highly safe control system by implementing risk assessment based on the IGC code, and system configuration applicable to merchant ships other than LPG carriers.

Tech-Hub HYDROGEN CMA CGM and »Energy Observer« join forces The CMA CGM Group is joining forces with »Energy Observer«, the first hydrogen-powered vessel to embark on a round-the-world voyage. »Energy Observer«, formerly a legendary race boat, is now a genuine experimental platform for tomorrow’s energy sources. It is sailing round the world in order to speed up development of the most innovative solutions for the environment. »Our partnership deals with the development of cleaner and more sustainable energies to eliminate CO2 emissions, greenhouse gases and air pollutants. It aims to experiment, test and develop energy solutions based on hydrogen, solar, tidal and wind power,« CMA CGM stated. The partners’ R&D experts will pool their expertise and knowledge to develop technological solutions capable of limiting the environmental impact of shipping. The mobilization of CMA CGM will make possible the industrialization of new concrete energy solutions tested on board this floating smart grid. DNV GL | WÄRTSILÄ Collaboration for digital transformation Wärtsilä and the classification society DNV GL have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in which they agree to work together to contribute to the marine industry’s ongoing digital transformation. In particular, the two companies wish to further explore the potential use of digital technologies, collaborative data sharing, and standardisation to enhance existing products and services, and to develop new ones. Among the focus areas will be collaboration on digital technologies and Big Data in classification and the requirements for their use. The project will examine the application of these technologies in areas such as autonomous ships, advanced remote services, new bridge technologies, and data sharing. Cyber security will be another natural area of cooperation. In announcing the agreement, the two companies noted that digital transformation developments can have an immediate and transformative impact on operations and existing business models.
