Tech-Hub HANSA TECH-HUB KALMAR First Eco Reachstacker for Indonesia Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has signed a contract with Cikarang Dry Port for the delivery of the first Kalmar Eco Reachstacker to Indonesia. Cikarang Dry Port is a public inland port located in the eastern corridor of greater Jakarta. It serves direct export and import for the surrounding industries under multimodal transport bill of lading provided by shipping line partners. »We are pleased with our purchase of the Kalmar Eco Reachstacker. We are excited by the reduced fuel consumption promised in daily operation. Other than cost, it is also better for our working environment. We believe the combined effect would be beneficial for our business and environment. And it is also in line with our mission for green operations,« said Benny Woenardi, Managing Director of PT Cikarang Inland Port, terminal operator of the Cikarang Dry Port. Kalmar launched the Eco Reachstacker in 2018. MOSCORD Schneider Electric marine product line added Digital ship supply platform Moscord has announced the addition of Schneider Electric to their portfolio. The partnership will allow ship owners and managers direct access to Schneider’s marine products, including last-mile delivery to virtually any harbor. Pascal Bonacina, responsible for the Marine Installed Base business at Schneider Electric, believes that the global nature of the marine industry makes collaboration with Moscord a natural choice. »Their digital platform allows Schneider Electric to reach this global market through a single channel. Today Schneider Electric delivers to more than 100 locations worldwide, which is great, but with Moscord, customers can find the right parts and solutions, believe it or not, on a larger scale from wherever they are and have them delivered to any ship, anywhere in the world.« The harsh environment in the marine and offshore industries requires products with special approvals and features to cope with extreme conditions. Schneider’s marine product line promises high availability, with rugged power protection for shipboard and other transportation applications, Moscord stated. WÄRTSILÄ »Acta Centaurus« gets hybrid propulsion package Technology group Wärtsilä is going to provide hybrid propulsion capability for a new offshore wind construction support vessel. »Acta Centaurus«, a DP2 walk-to-work construction support vessel owned by Netherlands-based Acta Marine, will thus gain fuel consumption and environmental benefits through being able to operate the vessel with less running engines at more optimised load, Wärtsilä stated. The solution to be provided by the Finnish company includes a hybrid drive, batteries, and an energy management system. Wärtsilä will also carry out the installation, testing and commissioning of the hybrid system, as well as upgrading the existing onboard systems of »Acta Centaurus« to make it suitable for hybrid propulsion. The installation of the equipment needed for the hybrid conversion will take place during the fourth quarter of this year. Ship owner Acta Marine supports clients on a world-wide basis in areas such as dredging, civil construction, offshore oil & gas and offshore renewables. 74 HANSA International Maritime Journal 09 | 2019

Tech-Hub INMARSAT Kotug selects Fleet Xpress Successful trials of Inmarsat Fleet Xpress off Western Australia have persuaded global tug operator Kotug International to select the high-speed broadband solution for this area of the Asia Pacific region. Following trials on board the 100-ton bollard pull tug »Roebuck Bay«, the towage service company has confirmed that the Fleet Xpress combination of Ka-band, continuously backed up by FleetBroadband, has significantly enhanced both the stability of communications and available uptime. Kotug will now phase in Fleet Xpress connectivity to cover towage services supporting Shell’s floating LNG platform »Prelude« via a flexible plan agreement that includes »Confirmed and Maximum Information Rates« for data transfer and crew connectivity. The package also incorporates a comprehensive onboard movie/sports/news content entertainment package. CAVOTEC Tallinn orders MoorMaster Cavotec’s MoorMaster automated mooring system has been selected for two passenger ferry berths at the Port of Tallinn in Estonia, the second order of this type for the unmanned mooring technology within a few weeks. Cavotec will design, supply, commission and service two multi-unit MoorMaster automated mooring systems at two passenger ferry berths in the Estonian capital. The systems will moor large RoPax vessels that make several daily crossings between Tallinn and the Finnish capital Helsinki, where MoorMaster systems have been in use since 2016. In June this year, the Port of Turku, also in Finland, announced that it was installing a multi-unit MoorMaster system, too. The system will be delivered in 2020. It will be installed at the Viking Line berth at the Port of Turku, southwest Finland. The system will moor the 218 m passenger and vehicle ferries »Grace« and the new-build »Glory«. »Grace« entered service in 2013, and »Glory« is scheduled to make her maiden voyage in 2021. According to Cavotec the automated mooring systems improve safety, reduce environmental impact, and substantially increase operational efficiency by removing conventional mooring lines from the mooring process. This would lead to reduced mooring times, less vessel motion, less fuel consumption and reduced emissions. According to the company more than 80 MoorMaster systems have performed some 500,000 moorings at ferry, bulk and container handling ports as well as lock and ship-to-ship applications worldwide. TUCO New workboat supplements ProZero series Tuco Marine has presented a new ProZero 10 m Walk-Around workboat. The vessel is dedicated to the workboat, crew transfer and diving markets. It is strategically sized and equipped for passenger transportation and patrol missions in coastal and offshore waters. Like all ProZero vessels, this boat is built from robust lightweight glass- and carbon fiber composites which reduces the weight of the boat, thereby allowing both higher speeds and lower fuel consumption, Tuco stated. The walk-around deck layout with a centered cabin provides flexibility and room for a variety of missions and boarding situations. The interior cabin layout is adjustable and can be transformed into mission-specific environments with comfortable over-night accommodation areas for the crew or seating arrangements for efficient passenger/crew transport. Two sleeping accommodations have been designed beneath the cabin and below the foredeck to allow crew and passengers to rest and sleep on board. HANSA International Maritime Journal 09 | 2019 75
