EUROPE World’s First Methanol-Burning Tankers

Marine Log recently underwent a cover-to-cover redesign of its print and digital magazine. The redesign showcases a refreshed look, improved content flow, and expanded coverage of the maritime industry.

What’s New:


IN ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE fuel technology breakthrough, the world’s first three 50,000 dwt oceangoing tankers to burn methanol were recently named at christening ceremonies in South Korea and Japan. The 186m x 32.2m Lindanger was built by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard for Norwegian owner Westfal-Larsen. The Mari Jone and Taranaki Sun were both built by Japan’s Minaminippon Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. The three tankers are the first of seven that will be charted by Waterfront Shipping (WFS) to transport methanol worldwide. Two vessels will be owned by Westfal-Larsen, two owned by a joint venture between Marinvest/Skagerack Invest and WFS, and the remaining three by Mitsui OSK Lines

(MOL) lorem. The tankers are each equipped with the first-of-its kind MAN B&W two-stroke 6G50ME-9.3 ME-LGI dual-fuel, two-stroke engine that can run on methanol, fuel oil, marine diesel oil, or gas oil. The engine was developed by MAN Diesel & Turbo and is based on the company’s proven ME-series. “When operating on methanol, the MELGI significantly reduces emissions of CO2, NOx and Sox,” says Ole Grøne Senior Vice President, Head of Marketing and Sales, MAN Diesel & Turbo. “Additionally, any operational switch between methanol and other conventional fuels is seamless,” he adds lorem ipsem.

DSD Shipping To Pay For Violating Apps And Lying To Coast Guard NORWAY’S DSD SHIPPING will pay a penalty of $2.5 million after it was found guilty of obstruction of justice, violating the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships (APPS), tampering with witnesses and conspiring to commit these offenses. Part of that penalty, $500,000, will be paid to Dauphin Island Sea Lab Foundation to help fund marine research and enhance coastal habitats in the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay. The U.S. Department of Justice says that

evidence demonstrated at trial shows that DSD operated the 56,000 gross ton M/T Stavanger Blossom from 2010 to 2014 without an operable oily-water separator. According to documents, an internal corporate memorandum written by a vessel engineer on January 29, 2010 warned DSD that the pollution prevention equipment did not work—and should the problem not be rectified someday, someone might end up getting “caught for polluting.” The oily-water separator was never

rom optimized ship designs to performance monitoring and from improved maintenance to more effective voyage management, Europe’s maritime sector is pioneering a range of new technologies that are transforming all aspects of global ship operation. Soon, noon-day reporting from fallible human beings will be a thing of the past. From cradle to grave, a whole new approach to ship efficiency has been made possible by recent advances in IT and data processing. Now, a step change in “always-on” ship connectivity will allow maritime assets to be monitored and managed remotely right round the clock. As we reported in “Shipping’s space age future” (ML April 2016, p. 37), perhaps the most ambitious project on the go in Europe is the Rolls-Royce-led Advanced Autonomous Waterborne Applications

human error.” Finferries and dry bulk shipping company ESL Shipping Oy are the first ship operators to join the project, which aims to explore ways in which to combine existing communication technologies as effectively as possible for autonomous ship control. Inmarsat’s involvement is key. The London-listed communications company recently began the roll-out of its new Fleet Xpress service, seen by many as truly a light-bulb moment. Preparing the ground for rapid advances in smart ship operation and crew welfare, the new service now provides always-on high-speed broadband communication between maritime and offshore assets at sea, and shore-based managers. It is the first time that such a service has been available from a single operator. Fleet Xpress will also facilitate cloudbased applications from third parties

Initiative (AAWAI) in which other maritime firms including DNV GL, Inmarsat, Deltamarin and NAPA are also involved. Other participants include top academics from various Finnish universities. At a project update meeting recently in Helsinki, Rolls-Royce President - Marine, Mikael Makinen declared: “Autonomous shipping is the future of the maritime industry. As disruptive as the smart phone, the smart ship will revolutionize the landscape of ship design and operations.” Delegates heard that the sensor technology is now sufficiently sound and commercially available so that algorithms required for robust decision-making— the vessel’s virtual captain—are not far away. Now the arrays of sensors are to be tested over the coming months on board Finferries’ 65-meter-long double-ended ferry, Stella. “Some of the distinct goals of this project are to make a difference in marine safety and energy efficiency,” Päivi Haikkola, Manager, R&D, Deltamarin Ltd., told Marine Log. “We want to mitigate

with smart systems to raise ship operating efficiency and improve the life-quality of seafarers. For the first time, big data can be used to improve asset management and maintenance. IT advances have also facilitated a new approach to ship design. Model basins and testing tanks still have their place, of course, but thousands of relatively high-speed computational iterations can measure the relative benefits of small design changes in a way that has not been possible before. Take the Finnish company Foreship, for example. Its capabilities in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and the super-efficient hull forms which it has developed have propelled the company into a position as one of the top ship design consultants to global cruise lines, advising both on newbuilding plans, conversions and retrofits. In a couple of months, the first of two 4,700 dwt “EcoCoaster” cargo ships is due for delivery to Finland’s Meriaura Group from the Royal Bodewes yard in the Netherlands. Foreship carried out

Instead, DSD operated the vessel illegally for the next 57 months until U.S. Coast Guard inspectors identified the problem in November 2014. Testimony at trial revealed that DSD illegally discharged about 20,000 gallons of oil-contaminated wastewater and plastic bags containing 270 gallons of sludge into the ocean during the last two-and-a-half months of the vessel’s operation. Evidence also showed that DSD lied about these.
