TECH-INNOVATION POWERED BY VDMA - MARINE EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS MAN ENERGY SOLUTIONS Dual fuel-engines for the new CO 2 -tanker project Carbon capture heat recovery-systems The Chinese shipyard Dalian Shipbuilding Industry has ordered two B&W 7S35ME-GI dual-fuel engines for two 7,500 m3 tankers for liquid CO 2 . The vessels are destined for the Northern Lights project, a joint venture between Equinor, Shell and TotalEnergies. The engines are equipped with the MAN EcoEGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system, MAN has now announced. Delivery of the © MAN Energy Solutions 130 m vessels is scheduled for mid-2024. Wayne Jones, Chief Sales Officer and Member of the Executive Board of MAN Energy Solutions, said: »We are delighted to be contributing to this groundbreaking project. With the current focus in shipping on reducing methane slip, our dual-fuel ME-GI engines will minimise emissions from the vessels on this project, the environmental impact of which is being carefully assessed.« The newbuild vessels are designed to carry liquid CO 2 in purpose-built cargo tanks. The ME-GI dual-fuel engines will mainly run on LNG. The Norcem project The Norwegian government‘s Longship project aims to demonstrate that carbon capture technology can be applied to larger industrial plants. HeidelbergCement‘s Norcem plant near Oslo will be the first to use the Carbon Capture Heat Recovery technology (CCWHR) developed by MAN and Aker Carbon Capture from summer 2024, capturing 400,000 t of CO 2 annually, equivalent to 50 % of total emissions. The gas will be compressed, liquefied and then transported by Northern Lights using the new tankers to its onshore terminal near Bergen in western Norway. From there, a pipeline leads to an underground storage site in the North Sea. Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions, said: »Unfortunately, CO 2 emissions are currently unavoidable in the production of cement. Around 6–7 % of global carbon dioxide emissions are generated in this sector. The cement industry is therefore a key sector on the way to a decarbonised global economy. We are proud to be able to offer an energy-efficient technology solution to eliminate carbon emissions for HeidelbergCement‘s Norcem location. It is the result of our successful pioneering work in CCS together with Aker Carbon Capture.« HASYTEC Nomination for environmental award In the year where the German Environmental Award can celebrate its 30th anniversary Hasytec has been suggested for the four-stage selection process. The suggestion is supported by VDMA, which was necessary for the further process. »The VDMA is very pleased when an innovation member wins this prestigious award. That is also an inspiration for our entire industry with it’s strong commitment to the development of technical solutions, that supports the climate and environmental protection,« says Hauke Schlegel, Managing Director of VDMA Marine Equipment and Systems. The German Environmental Award is one of the most prestigious awards in Europe. The honor is accompanied by a prize sum of 500.000 €. Hasytec Electronics is originally a Cleantech-Startup from Kiel, Germany. The company develops and markets a system that is working with the principles of Ultrasound and prevents development of biofilm and maritime growth in a »environmental friendly and sustainable manner«. This system makes the use of paint with content of heavy metals, as well as the environmental harmful copper anodes obsolet. At the same time will the clean hull and propeller reduce the use of fuel oil, the company says. 66 HANSA – International Maritime Journal 04 | 2022

LIEBHERR Remote maintenance system for offshore cranes LiMAIN is a recently developed remote maintenance system from the manufacturer Liebherr. It brings digitalization to platforms worldwide with »state-of-theart« features allowing components, mechanics as well as maintenance personnel to interact in a efficient way, the company says. LiMain, short for Liebherr Intelligent Maintenance, will enable anyone to be in charge of the platform entirely without having it on sight. The foundation of LiMain is its modular system architecture consisting of four modules. According to Liebherr the package is designed to allow operators to determine the scope of smart maintenance according to their specific needs. The four modules are: • Automatic greasing, which will continuously check critical components, automatically lubricate them when needed. • The condition monitoring, which benefits from sensor technology, detailed data about crane as well as its components. It delivers insights in real-time. • Predictive maintenance puts ad-hoc data into context, building on decades of experience from the construction of over thousand offshore cranes. The module serves as the foundation for an optimised product and component lifecycle. • Remote maintenance cycle representing the combination plus interconnection of all the aforementioned models. The crane is actively moved but semiautomatic maintenance and self-diagnosis is enabled. Due to Liebherr up to 75 % less mobilisation and up to 50 fewer man-days on platforms are possible. As a result, platform owners will save immensely on resources, may it be on personnel, material or transport. LiMain reduces the need for service people on platforms while shortening the time spent there, Liebherr continues. If an engineer flies to an installation to do a check-up, LiMain can inform him beforehand, for example, when a part needs replacement. Thus, it is ensured that all machinery keeps working, no extra working time or resources will be lost during transport. Furthermore, LiMain empowers platform owners to remotely take decisive action anytime, anywhere, Liebherr says. And the users don‘t need to worry about cybersecurity because of a VPNencryption embedded into a tunnel solution, access for third parties is impossible, the company adds. »LiMain and its compelling modular system is indeed priceless. This magnificent feature simply enables you to act whenever, wherever. Ideally, you have to visit your platform only once during an entire year representing an extraordinary business advantage for each and every platform owner«, states Stefan Schneider, Global Application Manager for General Purpose Offshore Cranes. © Liebherr With LiMAIN cranes can be maintained from onshore HANSA – International Maritime Journal 04 | 2022 67
