Tech-Hub HANSA TECH-HUB FOCUS ALFA LAVAL New PureSOx system Alfa Laval PureSOx gives customers the option to scrub exhaust gas in closed loop, either by choosing a fully equipped hybrid system or by installing a hybridready system that can be upgraded for closed-loop operation later. With the launch of a modular new PureSOx water cleaning system (WCS), these possibilities become even more attractive. As before, the foundation of the Pure SOx WCS is high-speed centrifugal separation. In the new modular system, the separator module can be combined with a floc culator or a membrane module for additional capacity. According to Alfa Laval, new features lower closed-loop operating costs and increase safety. Still more benefits are achieved through two new features. One is the ability to use either NaOH or non-hazardous Mg(OH)2 as the alkaline additive, the other is the option of using seawater rather than fresh water for replenishing the water system, which yields lower energy costs. DNV GL Project ROMAS completes first tests Classification society DNV GL, automation systems vendor Høglund, ferry operator Fjord1, and the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA) have completed the first testing phase of the ROMAS (Remote Operation of Machinery and Automation Systems) project. The key concept is to move the engine control room (ECR) from the ship to a shorebased engine control centre (ECC), where chief engineers can operate the propulsion and auxiliary machinery systems of a single ship or of a fleet of vessels. The test campaign was conducted in the first quarter of 2019, using the Fjord1 ferry »Fannefjord«, with the ECC established at Fjord1’s office in Molde. »Fannefjord« is a DNV GL classed LNG/battery/ diesel powered ro-ro ferry that operates between Molde and Vestnes. ROMAS will continue to the end of 2019, supported by funding from the Norwegian Research Council. The plan is to use the experience from the project to guide future operations including a »remote ready« integrated automation system (IAS) from Høglund, the applicable rules and Approval in Principle programs from DNV GL, and regulations from the Norwegian Maritime Authority. • 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: EXXONMOBIL New engine oil launched ExxonMobil has developed the new 20BN engine oil Mobilgard M420. It is designed for medium speed engines using fuels that comply with the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) global 0.5 % sulphur cap. With the marine fuel landscape changing in the lead up to 2020, Mobilgard M420 has been formulated for use on vessels running on 0.50% or 0.10% sulphur fuels, with deliveries expected to start during August 2019. The product, which has received No Objection Letters from both MAN ES and Wärtsilä, is also proven for use with liquefied natural gas (LNG) due to its low BN formulation. The new lubricant builds on the Mobilgard M Series, which is designed for performance in medium-speed marine engines, even under severe conditions. 62 HANSA International Maritime Journal 07 | 2019

Tech-Hub SHELL 58 % cost savings by Gadinia Shell Marine has provided evidence of the cost savings available when a customer chooses its medium-speed engine oil Shell Gadinia, after PT Indo Container Line (ICON Line) confirmed that reduced lubricant consumption led to longer oil-drain intervals and cost reduced by 58 %. Independent laboratory tests confirmed that oil-drain intervals can be extended from 1,500 hours to 3,500 hours, the company stated. Shell Gadinia S3 40 is a multi-functional diesel engine lubricant which is particularly suited for medium-speed main or auxiliary engines burning fuels with sulphur contents up to 1 %, protecting against oxidisation and thermal degradation and minimising lacquering. The engine oil can also help extend engine life by reducing deposit formation in the piston ring belt and cylinder liners, by reducing the risk of ring sticking and breakage. WÄRTSILÄ Water and waste system Technology group Wärtsilä has shown its development work on a smart concept for onboard water and waste systems. It involves combining the latest environmental technology and process expertise with real-time data collection and digital modelling. This is made possible by Wärtsilä having the marine industry’s most extensive portfolio of waste and water treatment solutions, and a unique offering in digital tools such as data collection units and route planning. According to the company, the concept promises to change the industry’s approach to waste and water treatment, thereby opening up opportunities for new business models. The primary benefits are anticipated as being the enablement of troublefree operation, full regulatory compliance, valuable cost savings resulting from the higher level of efficiency attained, and the lack of harmful impact on the marine environment. The inclusion of remote monitoring of the systems will enable operational improvements based on real-time facts validated against a digital twin of the system. Initial studies show that, when linking water and waste operation to route planning, the potential reductions in energy consumption could be as much as 25 %, Wärtsilä stated. With its capabilities in simulating, modelling and designing complete solutions from the ground up, Wärtsilä aims to create a holistic integrated system with all the elements designed to work and interact seamlessly together. System reporting will be automatically generated, and in line with local and international port regulations. K-LINE Order for automated kites After two years of close technical and business cooperation, the Japanese shipping company Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K-Line) has announced a 20-year agreement with Airseas to install and service one of their vessels with Seawing, an automated kite based on parafoil technology. It is used to tow commercial ships and reduces CO2 by 20% through wind propulsion K-Line stated. Once the first Seawing is successfully delivered, the shipping company will contemplate to order up to 50 additional Seawings. »Seawing reduces the environmental footprint of a capesize vessel by 5,200 t of CO2 per year depending on the vessel voyage route, that is contributing to achieving our goal to reduce CO2 emissions by half, targeting year 2050, in K-Line Environmental Vision 2050,« says Atsuo Asano, Senior Managing Executive Officer (SMEO) of K-Line. The Japanese shipping company transports goods worldwide through its fleet of 520 vessels. Most of them (209) are dry bulk carriers with a common capacity of 26,423,503,000 dwt.
