The premise of the design is the Damen Twin Axe bow design. The Axe

for the 13th time.

Bow, a patented design that allows the vessel to cut through waves instead of slamming, significantly improves seakeeping and onboard comfort. Damen’s FCS 2610 optimised this seakeeping behaviour by combining the Axe Bow with a catamaran hull form. The FCS 3410 further develops this evolutionary theme, tailoring the concept to meet the requirements of the emerging US offshore renewables market, as Daan Dijxhoorn, Damen sales manager US explains. “This vessel is well suited to numerous markets, however, we have given it long endurance capability so that it can remain at sea for up to five days at a time – a requirement typically seen in US operations. To facilitate this we have designed a vessel 6 metres longer than previous FCS types, able to host more on board personnel and accommodation.”

Phosphorescent Wilco Stroet is standing in the booth of Lankhorst Ropes on the maritime exhibition SMM, last September. “A lot of people think that a rope is a rope. But that is not true, look at all the different types of rope we have on display here.” He points at a wall of samples. “Each of these ropes has a specific quality and is used for different kind of jobs. In fact, we launched a new innovation in the maritime rope business during this exhibition.” Lankhorst Ropes has created a phosphorescent mooring rope that increases the visibility of the rope during dusk. “That sounds easy to do, but the strength of the rope cannot be compromised.” The phosphorescent mooring rope is one the latest products of the company

This new exterior style concept is bound to create a new design stream. It is important to us that we started this new stream together with Oceanco” The yacht’s elegant contemporary interior compliments the exterior design.

PROJECT BRAVO: A HARMONIOUS BALANCE


THINKING GREEN

Huge 3D printer uses fibres, making prints much stronger Royal Roos one of the launching costumers A construction hall on the outskirts of Delft was the scene of a special presentation, last November. A crowd gathered around a large box that was hidden from view by a curtain. It gave the visitors the idea that some exotic beast was ready to put on show. And in a way it was, because behind the curtain stood one of the biggest 3D printers in the world.

The company CEAD from Delft contructed the machine with the name CFAM 3D printer. What makes this printer special, next to its size, is the fact that it can print two materials simultaneously. It combines ‘ordinary’ 3D printing materials with long, continuous fibres of glass or carbon. The fibre runs precisely through the middle of the plastic in every print round. This makes the prints produced much stronger, making it useful for heavy industries such as shipping.

Trial and error It wasn’t easy to construct the system in such a way that the fibres are properly embedded in the print. A reel feeds the

Steer like a Boss Energy efficiency is more than the sum of a number of technical solutions. An important factor is the human-in-theloop and particularly the fact that no human is perfect. Ships sailing on the rivers are continuously manoeuvring with the rudders, and there are more and less efficient ways to steer the vessel through a curve. In general one can say that less and gentler movements are better, much like the gas and brake pedals in a car. A novelty on Alize is the BOSS Eco system from Van Der Velden Marine Systems.

Royal Huisman and Huisfit have an established track record of success with such projects, including the rescue and rebuild of the 40 metres J-Class yacht Endeavour. The yacht, built in 1934, was saved from a muddy grave, restructured in England then brought to Royal Huisman to bring her back to her finest. More recently Huisfit took care of the restoration of Flyer, winner of the 1977-1978 Whitbread Round the World Race.

Maritime Monitor 2018: signs of economic recovery The new Maritime Monitor was presented by Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management Cora van Nieuwenhuizen during the Maritime Awards Gala 2018. She handed out the first edition to Wim van Sluis, chairman Nederland Maritiem Land (Maritime by Holland). The study clearly shows signs of economic recovery. Direct employment in the maritime cluster declined slightly, although there is a shortage of technical staff.

marginally (0.1 per cent) compared to the revised figures

in the maritime cluster declined only slightly

for 2016. The fact that this increase exceeds the rise in employment clearly shows signs of economic recovery. The increase in the direct added value of the cluster is lower than the GDP growth of the Netherlands (+4.1 per cent). The indirect added value of the maritime cluster is decreasing by almost 6.5 per cent. The largest decline occurred in the shipbuilding sector. For the total added value (direct plus indirect) of the maritime cluster, this means a decrease of 1.2 per cent compared to the recalculated figures for 2016. The total export of the maritime cluster amounted to nearly â‚Ź26 billion in 2017, noting a decrease of â‚Ź0.35 billion in comparison to 2016. This decrease is mainly attributable to shipbuilding, where the export figures of CBS show a substantial peak in 2016 compared to 2015 and 2017. In 2017, the cluster has a share of 3.9 per cent in total Dutch exports of goods and services. The most noticeable increase of added value took place in the maritime services sector, with an increase of 56 per cent. A sector such as shipping, which clearly benefited from the strong growth in world trade and the commodities boom before the crisis, has not yet recovered.

ELECTRICAL OUTFITTING ON ADVANCED VESSEL

The 160-metre Living Stone is designed to lay deep-sea cables linking offshore wind farms and the mainland. In addition, the vessel is also equipped for the positioning of rocks using a vertical fall pipe system that can reach depths of up to 1,000 metres. Additional features include a cable capacity of more than 10,000 tonnes, an advanced cable laying system, dual-fuel (MGO-LNG) engines and a DP3 system. This specification ensures that the Living Stone is one of the most advanced and largest vessel in its class today. The vessel is equipped with an advanced cable-laying system designed by DEME’s offshore engineering specialist Tideway and built at Reimerswaal shipyard. To minimize costs, Tideway designed a system with two cable ways; one to lay the cable and another on which the next cable can be prepared at the same time and on which a cable protection system (CPS) is installed. This allows much faster cable preparation, and a reduction in the need for manual
