Tech-Hub HANSA TECH-HUB LLOYD’S REGISTER | EURONAV ShipRight: Approval audits for 25 vessels agreed Classification society Lloyd’s Register (LR) has signed an agreement with leading tanker group Euronav to approve its Machinery Planned Maintenance and Condition Monitoring Scheme (MPMS(CM)) for 25 vessels. This will be performed in accordance with LR’s recently updated ShipRight procedures for MPMS(CM), helping Euronav optimise maintenance schemes and embrace available technology, the partners announced. The class will conduct a remote audit, which involves the review and approval of selected machinery on the basis of satisfactory condition monitoring data, and an implementation audit during the first annual survey. »Using technology to perform remote audits helps both LR and Euronav protect the safety of crew, surveyors and auditors while also reducing the need to open-up machinery, meaning there are fewer, less intrusive attendances onboard,« said Theodosis Stamatellos, LR’s South Europe Manager. ROYAL IHC MERWEDE | APC New owner, new order The Dutch specialist shipyard IHC gains new hope for an improvement in its difficult financial situation: Shortly after the takeover by a consortium consisting of the companies HAL Investments, Ackermans & van Haaren, MerweOord and Huisman and the »existing banking consortium« IHC, newbuilding and maintenance orders have now been obtained from the Middle East. The Jordan-based Arab Potash Company (APC) has signed a total of three contracts for the supply of two cutter suction dredgers (CSDs) and the implementation of a new maintenance contract. The first contract covers the supply of a custom-built CSD, the second is a threeyear maintenance contract for the dredgers »Jarash« and »Mutah« already built by IHC, plus a further sister of »Jarash«, as IHC has announced. By establishing a foundation (»stichting continuïteit«), which will hold the shares in IHC Merwede Holding, the consortium intends to maintain both the leading technology of the 350-yearold shipyard and its position as an important hub in the maritime cluster for the Netherlands. • 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: info@seil-hering.de www.seil-hering.de FINCANTIERI Major contract for US frigates The Italian Fincantieri group has secured a prestigious contract in the highly competitive naval shipbuilding sector that are valued at several billion dollars. The US Navy is ordering new frigates. As part of the so-called »FFG(X)« programme, Fincantieri’s US-subsidiary Marinette Marine (FFM) has been awarded the contract for the design and construction of the »first guided missile frigate of this class.« The initial deal has a volume of almost 800 mill. $. The order includes an option for nine additional ships, as well as post-delivery availability support and crew training. This could increase the value to up to 5.5 bn $. The US Navy plans to build ten additional ships under the future frigate programme, bringing the total fleet to 20 units. 48 HANSA – International Maritime Journal 06 | 2020

Tech-Hub TMC Compressors for FPSO The Norwegian compressor supplier TMC Compressors of the Seas (TMC ) has won a contract from Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (SWS) to supply the marine compressed air system to a newbuild FPSO, the yard is constructing for SBM Offshore. TMC’s scope of work is to provide a compressed air system consisting of 4 x large service and instrument air compressors with associated air dryers and filters. The cpmpany will supply the equipment to SWS in China. This is the third newbuild FPSO that SWS will build based on SBM Offshore’s Fast4Ward hull and standardized topsides modules, which are designed to secure reliable execution and lower costs. In January 2018, TMC was awarded the contract to supply the marine compressed air system to the first of the three FPSOs. In 2019, another contract for the second Fast4Ward FPSO has followed. DR. E. HORN Compact Water in Oil Sensor The company Dr. E. Horn, based in Gärtringen, Germany, has launched a new »water in oil« sensor. It is state of the art to record the oil content in lubricating oil depending on the oil temperature in order to prevent corrosion online. »But it is new to perform this with a compact sensor with built-in limit value monitoring«, the specialist for engine safety states. The concept leads to an economical monitoring of oils in the preventive maintenance of two- and fourstroke engines, compressors or gearboxes, both in the retrofit and OEM business. The sensor measures the moisture content and oil temperature using a highly integrated sensor element, which digitizes/ linearizes the measured values on board and provides them for further evaluation in the sensor. Additional signal conversions and signal adjustments are no longer necessary. »The compact version of the micro controller provides two relay outputs, which give a pre-alarm at 50% and a main alarm at 90% water saturation of the oil,« says Dr. E. Horn. A modified sensor version in combination with an evaluation unit extends the functional with a watchdog, an event memory and trend evaluation as well as Marine 4.0 connectivity. »YARA BIRKELAND« Project stopped due to Covid-19 The »Yara Birkeland« as the world’s first autonomous container ship is one of the most spectacular projects in the shipping industry. The ship is ready. The newbuilding was recently towed to Norway from Vard shipyard in Romania. At Brattvag, the newbuilding was planned to be completed and to receive the innovative technical equipment that would make autonomous operation of the container feeder ship (120 TEU) possible in the first place. Now the project has been stopped due to the Corona crisis and will be put on hold until further notice. The 80 m long ship with a capacity of 3,200 t was to transport fertiliser from Yara’s production facility in Porsgrunn to the container ports in Brevik and Larvik from 2022 onwards, replacing 40,000 truck journeys a year. Among others, Kongsberg and DNV GL are involved in the project, another partner is the Cargotec Group through its subsidiary MacGregor. »Yara Birkeland« is one of Norway’s technological flagship projects, which has already won numerous awards, including the Green Tech Award.
