Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology Photo: ABS Photo: Lloyd’s Register »Industry wants to see greater alignment between costs and benefits of regulation« » Christopher Wiernicki, President/CEO, ABS ABS has maintained a focus on cyber risk in marine and offshore industries. As systems become more connected and integrated, ships become exposed to new risks and vulnerabilities. ABS was the first class organization to publish guidance and issue notations to help address these new cyber risks – known as the ABS CyberSafety series. In a shipping industry context, we wanted to provide a scalable, stepwise approach to a vast subject that covers both Information Technology and Operational Technology risks. Our assessments for clients are helping them to manage the hacking threat and build concepts such as cyber hygiene and best practices. Over the next three to five years we will see major changes start to happen in ship design and construction that will usher in an era of smarter shipping in the next generation of assets delivered. ABS is positioned to use new tools and techniques to make the class process more data-driven and thus more predictive and less intrusive, so that owners can make better decisions about their assets. In support of the key Greek market, ABS in mid-June unveiled its Global Ship Systems Center and announced the formation of a new Hellenic Technical Committee. This facility brings together industry-recognized technical leaders to support clients throughout the entire lifecycle of their assets. Through a systems-based approach, the Global Ship Systems Center addresses the increasing complexity of mechanical and cyber-enabled systems onboard vessels. As these systems are increasingly interconnected and optimized, a more advanced approach to address design and construction is required. Increased digitization is changing the way the world operates. Foundational to digitization is data and the connectivity of that data. For the marine industry this means that through data gathering and greater use of automation, owners and operators have visibility into real-time information. Proper data collection, security, management and analytics can be used to help better anticipate and predict safety, security, performance and maintenance issues, driving reduced downtime and helping find new effciencies. Digitization is facilitating new ways of applying data and optimizing shipping entirely. We know that the industry wants to see greater alignment between costs and benefits of regulation so that the issues around ballast water, for example, are not repeated. This seems a sensible approach and one that balances the regulatory imperative with the availability of solutions that owners can adopt. As we move ahead, I expect that there will be increased industry focus on creating more alignment between regulations on a global basis. Industry is supportive of common standards to help prevent uncertainty and increased costs. « 60 HANSA International Maritime Journal – 154. Jahrgang – 2017 – Nr. 8 »Batteries will become significantly more widespread going forward« » Nick Brown, Marine & Offshore Director, Lloyd’s Register During the last twelve months Loyds Register (LR) has continued to invest in new technologies alongside working to implement smarter and more effective ways of servicing our global client network. Additionally, the alignment of our Marine and Offshore businesses is continuing to prove beneficial to our success. This year we have seen some very significant Offshore projects commence and the successful completion of Shell’s »Prelude« project. The learnings our team and the industry as a whole gain is invaluable. An example of how our innovation team is starting to deliver more agile products and services that are subject to a much quicker adoption cycle is the recent certification of the LPG carrier »Trammo Dietlin«. In July last year we launched our guidance for the classification of autonomous ships and within one year we have already had a ship fully certified against these class notations. We have also seen Rolls-Royce and Svitzer successfully demonstrate the world’s first remotely operated commercial vessel in Copenhagen, with assurance provided by LR against our cyber-enabled ships ShipRight procedure. LR is already global and present in most locations where there is trade so there is little potential for us to expand regionally. In terms of our service portfolio we do see a significant increase in the opportunities for us to support around the data and digital movement within the industry, whether that be through bespoke consultancy with our Cyber Secure service, or our guidance for the classification of autonomous ships. We are looking to find more partners who are offering a data and digital service outside of our industry but looking to expand into it. In terms of technology hardware I think that batteries, in combination with power management systems, to deliver hybrid powering solutions is something that will become significantly more widespread going forward, particularly as the industry works towards phase three of the EEDI (Energy Effciency Design Index) implementation in 2025. « However, probably the biggest single game-changer going forward that will be enabled via technology is data analytics, which will support a much more responsive way of understanding how assets are performing. This could lead to more dynamic ways in which rules and designs are developed.
» Innovation and service are most important for Bureau Veritas. We have just celebrated the delivery of the »Christophe de Margerie«, the BV-classed Yamal LNG carrier with innovative podded propulsion, stern-first ice capability built to operate in Arctic winters. Gas-related services have required high levels of BV service delivery in the last year. In June, the first STS transfer of LNG has taken place from the BV classed bunker vessel »Engie Zeebrugge«. Our cooperation with Meyer yards has been another highlight – the LNG fuelled »Megastar«, delivered from Meyer Turku, is an innovative LNG related project. Recently announced was Brittany Ferries commitment to build their new gas fuelled cross-channel ferry at Flensberger Schiffau. This is an exciting project for us. LNG is an area where we remain ambitious and we would like to see our LNG sector capabilities and market share continue to grow. We already have a leading share of the LNG fuelled ships orderbook and an approximately 35% market share of FSRUs in service and under construction. Photo: Bureau Veritas »Further consolidation may be logical but it is probably also unlikely right now« Philippe Donche-Gay, Executive Vice- President Marine & Offshore Division, Bureau Veritas Although orders for bulk carriers, tankers and container ships declined dramatically in 2016, we have been contracted for newbuilding projects in sectors requiring smaller, specialized tonnage. Another example of innovation has been in the development of Bureau Veritas’ electric-hybrid rules. Our new asset integrity management solution, Veristar Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology AIM 3D, is a next generation Asset Integrity Management (AIM) solution for the shipping and offshore industries to reduce the CAPEX and OPEX exposure of operators. It can be used from the design stage, through construction, and throughout the operational lifecycle. It could lead to a complete change in how inspection, maintenance and repair activities are prepared and reported. Integrating the latest acquisitions, TMC Marine and MAC, has been another key area of activity. Rather than adding to or expanding our global presence we have to find ways to use our network ever more effectively. Further consolidation may be logical but is probably also unlikely right now. The next game changer? Effective use of data and assets integrity management to increase effciency and reduce costs « will be big. We can probably expect to see continued tightening of environmental regulation and the introduction of carbon pricing or market based measures at some point.
