Tech-Hub HANSA TECH-HUB BALLAST WATER MANAGEMENT DESMI wins frame agreement for Sea Tankers fleet French company Sea Tankers has selected DESMI Ocean Guard’s CompactClean Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) for installation on their existing fleet of vessels, and also appointed DESMI to undertake the engineering for the retrofit installations. The first three vessels will be retrofitted with BWMS in 2019, the rest will follow in the subsequent years. All vessels will be retrofitted with a CompactClean-750 system installed in a container on the deck. This solution has been chosen because these tankers have submerged ballast pumps, and hence no pump room where the BWMS can be installed. The CompactClean BWMS for Sea Tankers are EX certified versions approved for the installation in hazardous areas on tankers. DESMI will supply the complete package consisting of BWMS equipment together with an engineering package including manufacturing drawings of piping, pipe supports, foundations etc. LLOYD’S REGISTER HMD receives approval for LNG-fuelled MR tanker design Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) has received approval in principle (AiP) from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for an LNGfuelled 50,000 dwt class MR tanker design. To aid compliance with the global sulphur in fuel oil limit, which comes into effect on 1 January 2020, HMD has been focusing on LNG-fuelled ships as part of its plans to meet the market’s needs with environmentally friendly, commercially viable and innovative designs. HMD has incorporated an LNGfuelled propulsion system into its most successful design, following technical cooperation with LR, ensuring that the design complies with the new IGF code as well as LR’s Gas Fuelled Rules. HMD is now reviewing various other ship types for LNG-fuelled application, such as bulk carriers and container ships. LR adopted a risk-based approach to review the novel design and facilitated a high-level hazard identification (HAZID) workshop for the LNG fuel supply system in accordance with the LR ShipRight Procedure for Risk Based Designs. The concept design was reviewed in conjunction with the result of the HAZID workshop, requiring several actions and recommendations, before receiving AiP. • 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: PORTABLE BALLAST WATER TESTING Chelsea Technologies selected The Federal Public Service (FPS) Mobility and Transport, the arm of the Belgium government responsible for shipping, has selected Chelsea Technologies to provide benchmark portable testing for compliance with ballast water standards. This follows the Belgium government’s decision to begin testing vessels calling at its ports to ensure they can demonstrate compliance with the IMO’s Ballast Water Management Convention, representing one of the first European nations to enforce this mandate. FastBallast will be deployed as a benchmark testing device to conduct spot checks on indicative sampling of vessels in any Belgium port, allowing Port State Control (PSC) to target vessels for laboratory compliance testing. 72 HANSA International Maritime Journal 06 | 2019

Tech-Hub NAVIGATION & WEATHER SOLUTIONS GNS and StormGeo team up GNS and StormGeo today announced a strategic partnership to combine their industry-leading weather and navigation capabilities to benefit our shipping customers globally. The new partnership will leverage GNS’s and StormGeo’s combined competence in software and analytics, creating a strategic opportunity for joint development of new solutions and insight. The combined reach of the two companies is more than 20,000 vessels. Working with StormGeo, GNS is extending its Voyager FLEET INSIGHT online service to include key weather-related services. The companies will also collaborate to provide other tools and resources for the thousands of GNS and StormGeo customers worldwide to help vessels sail more efficiently and provide ship owners, managers and charterers with enhanced levels of situational awareness, data analytics and operational insights. CHEVRON New IMO 2020 white paper Chevron Marine Lubricants has released the second in a series of new white papers focusing on innovations and developments impacting the fastchanging shipping industry. This latest white paper, entitled »The 2020 Global Sulphur Cap and the role of cylinder oil lubricants« explores the impact of ships burning fuels with differing sulphur contents to heavy sulphur fuel oil cylinder oil use. The paper also offers advice form Chevron Marine Lubricant experts on how to manage the transition between cylinder oils pre-and post-2020. As the shipping industry prepares for the arrival of the global sulphur cap in January 2020, the operation of ships in a multi-fuel future is a fast approaching reality. Lubricants are essential to the smooth operation and service life of propulsion machinery, but their optimal use is highly dependent on fuel sulphur content. A diversified marine fuel mix demands tailoring lubricant selection to fuel sulphur content to ensure compatibility with fuels bunkered across a fleet. Lubrication is the lifeblood of an engine, the dominant function of cylinder oil being to protect the engine from acidic corrosion. Regardless of the compliance route chosen, bunkering low sulphur fuel alternatives versus installation of scrubbers on board, cylinder oil lubricant use will be impacted due to its synergetic relationship with the sulphur content in fuel. Chevron provides complete and reliable lubrication solutions for ships using virtually any fuel type. Its new full range of Taro Ultra cylinder lubricants provide solutions for operating requirements of today, and tomorrow. NAPA & CHARTWORLD Intelligent voyage optimization Maritime software, services and data analysis provider NAPA and digital chart agent Chart World have today announced their partnership to provide revolutionary artificial intelligence-driven voyage planning and optimization.The solution developed by NAPA and Chart- World includes modules for evaluating the operational efficiency of past voyages, and then using this data to optimize the efficiency of future transits where there are similar variables and trends. Past voyages are automatically evaluated via datasets collected from ChartWorld’s route network to find improved routes the vessel could have taken. These voyages are also automatically analyzed by NAPA’s algorithms for operational efficiency, taking into account wave conditions, weather, and other factors that affect the voyage. Under this partnership, ChartWorld has signed a re-seller agreement with NAPA. HANSA International Maritime Journal 06 | 2019 73
