HANSA TECH-HUB VARD Cable laying vessel for Orange Orange Marine is expanding its fleet of cable laying vessels. For a newbuilding specifically designed for the purpose of repairing fiber optic cables, the company chose a design from Vard, part of the Italian Fincantieri group. The »Vard 9 03« design for French Orange Marine is specifically designed for the maintenance of submarine cables, both fiber optic telecommunications cables and inter-array power cables used in offshore wind farms. The vessel will be built at the Colombo Dockyard, Sri Lanka’s largest shipbuildng group. The Vard Brattvaag shipyard has already delivered in 2014 the offshore support vessel »Pierre de Fermat« to Orange Marine, based on the 9 01 design, a state-of-the-art unit in terms of environmental sustainability and equipment. On the other hand, in 2019 Colombo has built the cable-laying vessel »KDDI Cable Infinity« for the Japanese company Kokusai Cable Ship, also based on the same Vard platform. INTELLIAN New antenna brings VSAT to smaller vessels Intellian has announced the v45C, the smallest antenna the company has yet developed for the maritime satellite communications market. The C in the product name represents its compact form factor. According to the company, this new 45 cm unit will bring VSAT to new markets where there is limited space available for communications equipment, such as workboats, leisure craft, fishing boats, small commercial and government vessels. »Intellian is committed to empowering connectivity for all, and recent launches have focused on enhancing user experience and capabilities with smaller VSAT solutions; first with the 60 cm v60E antenna launched last year, and now the v45C. This product extends the portfolio still further, opening up a new market of smaller vessels which have yet to benefit from the data speeds and capacity delivered by VSAT,« Intellian stated. Both the v60E and the v45C draw on the advanced technology developed for Intellian’s NX Series antennas, which range in size from 85 cm to 150 cm. Installation is made straightforward by single-cable, dome-on connection, while commissioning is facilitated by the built-in, browser-based AptusNX antenna management and diagnostics software. This enables the installer to follow a simple wizard to get the system up and running, and permits both local and remote diagnostics. 60 HANSA – International Maritime Journal 03 | 2021

HANSA TECH-HUB RINA | SDARI Methanol/ammonia-fuelled tanker Italian classification society Rina and the Shanghai Merchant Ship Design & Research Institute (SDARI) have signed a Joint Development Project Agreement to develop a groundbreaking ship design capable of being fuelled by either ammonia or methanol. Within the agreement, SDARI will focus on the ship concept development and design while Rina will verify the compliance with the applicable rules, including those for the use of alternative fuels. The selected ship type is a tanker, but the project, which is the first to investigate using both methanol and ammonia in this type of vessel, will increase understanding of the application of both fuels within the shipping industry with opportunities to apply designs to different types of ships. Engine maker MAN Energy Solutions is providing »external support«. »Ship designs have come a long way in their efficiency, but to meet targets for reduced emissions we need to look to alternative fuels«, says Giosuè Vezzuto, Executive Vice President Marine at Rina. A ship specifically designed and optimized for using ammonia and methanol as fuels would offer a future proof, environmentally sustainable solution. »While two-stroke engine technology will likely retain its influence within deepsea shipping for the foreseeable future, ammonia and methanol are fuels with a lot of potential as clean, zero-carbon fuels and with whom we have a lot of experience«, comments Brian Østergaard Sørensen, Vice President and Head of R&D, Two-Stroke Business at MAN Energy Solutions Copenhagen. TECO 2030 Dole orders BWTS Teco 2030 has received an order for four Teco Ballast Water Treatment Systems from Dole, a company that operates a fleet of refrigerated container vessels. Teco Ballast Water Treatment System, powered by Bio-Sea, is a water treatment system designed for inactivation and elimination of organisms in the ballast water, complying with the IMO D-2 standard and USCG regulations for discharge of such water by vessels during their ballasting operations. According to the comany, the system also complies with the new G8 rules which were put in force in October 2020. Furthermore Teco Ballast Water Treatment System complies with IMO and USCG. »By 2024 all ships will need a ballast water treatment system,« says Tore Enger, CEO of Teco 2030.
