But, as detailed in a new study by DNV and the Fridtjof Nansen Institute of the risks inherent in oil & gas exploration in the region, there is an urgent need for improved technology and oil companies, galloping for the line in the Arctic oil race, have their eye on the pot of consideration. Nor, in fact, is the potential for ecological disaster in the shape of a major oil spill in Arctic regions. The dramatic effects of climate change in the Arctic on small patches of ice spring to mind) showing the world the importance of bringing providing fresh channels of hope for oil majors eyeing up the possibilities in the Arctic, as the melting of sea ice opens up the region for further petroleum exploration. What emerges most forcefully from all our considerations of both Arctic operations and oil spill response strategies in this issue of the magazine is that the sensible way forward is one of co-operation between all parties. You should respect each other and refrain from disputes, said Buddha. You should not, like water and oil, repel each other, but should, like milk and water, mingle together. Speaking of mingling, the feedback we always get from our ITS conventions is that one of the main reasons our delegates come back again and again is because the events give them the opportunity to talk to everyone who is anyone in the industry, from all the many evening receptions, or during a chance encounter in the hotel lift. Add to this the fact that there is currently a strong sense in the industry that companies are open for business again after the economic caution of recent years, and you can see why this year s event is already proving to be so enormously popular. Exhibition space has sold out way ahead of any previous convention, and delegate registrations are looking more details of the event at As we were going to press, one example of that open for business feeling came in the shape of a phonecall from Ron Burchett, to tell me that Harley Marine Services has added a new component to its training programme in the shape of the BRAtt ASD training vessel from Robert Allan Ltd.

35 ASIAN FOCUS Environmental awareness is the new trend It is not easy being green, but if Asian countries wish to keep up with their international competitors, an environmental outlook is necessary. Rebecca Ferrier investigates the region s recent developments. Asia is getting greener. One example of this environmental stance comes from the Chinese shipping sector, where a new three-year cash subsidy programme has been launched to encourage newbuilds. Ship owners will be provided with US$247 per gross tonne to replace old ships with new, greener vessels, according to the announcement made by the Transport Ministry, the National Development and Reform Commission, and other agencies. Could this be the boost that the region is looking for? Not for the tug sector, say some observers. The OSV market, on the other hand, seems promising. Across South East Asia, the Middle East and West Africa, the demand for jack-up rigs is stronger than it was a year ago. The result is a demand for OSVs, further bolstered by are in-line to raise recovery and production levels, especially in South East Asia. Older, to produce more oil and gas in Brunei, Malaysia and other markets, while further deepwater discoveries in West and East Africa are expected to reinforce demand for OSVs. Despite the optimism inspired by this upcoming activity, concern over crewing, new talent and Asia s slow uptake on environmentally-friendly technologies cannot be overlooked. The new year brings a fresh start for Malaysia-based Sealink, which has sold three of its vessels. Paat Yuk Cheong, ship chartering manager, Sealink, Chartering Division, told IT&O: We actually disposed of the older units as a process of renewing our as well as to keep production from the yard. Compared to the company s third quarter but this was anticipated, said Yuk Cheong, as maintenance, drydocking and crewing cost had increased. In 2013, we had a number of vessels due for docking, which is one of However, the utilisation rates for our vessels has increased. The forecasts for this year are largely positive, with anticipation that the Asian market will pick up. For tugs in Asia, there is not so much of a demand except for bulk. As for OSVs, we foresee continuous demand. With the new vessels and younger drillings and productions, we foresee there will be some more activities in year We have seen a lot of market surveys and tenders released by the oil majors [and] have a challenging year ahead. The team is geared and prepared for the upcoming year. The hybrid market is at its genesis stage in Asia. There has not been much of an uptake, the developments are slow, but they are there. Yuk Cheong added: Owners and oil majors are still going forward for conventional [systems]. However, hybrid is being introduced to them on a fuel consumption as well as a multi-purpose role. One company with its focus on the greener side of the market is Japan-based Niigata Power Systems. The company s aim is to achieve harmony with the environment due to its international scope. Dr Masayoshi Kawakami, senior technical adviser, Niigata Power Systems Co Ltd, told IT&O: First of all, as a marine engine builder, we have to develop and supply engines that meet international environmental regulations like IMO Tier II and/or III. And also in order to satisfy customers needs to reduce fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions, we have to make continuous efforts to increase the Hybrid system, developed and applied to two tugboats in Japan, is one of the solutions to satisfy regulation, customers needs and [the] supplier s obligation to make the planet sustainable. As of now, the OSV market looks robust in this region. Venkatraman Sheshashayee, CEO, Jaya Holdings Ltd Niigata s other activities last year concern the successful release of its selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, which converts NOx emissions into harmless nitrogen and water, by mixing emissions with ammonia as a reduction agent and forcing the mixture to pass through a catalyst layer. Primarily, a need to focus on the international market is what is pushing environmental initiatives. Though North America and Europe have as their own directives for exhaust emissions from ships, there is not such remarkable movement to designate IMO Tier III emission control areas in Asian countries at the moment, said Kawakami. However, because a lot of ships built in Asia are to be operated in other regions (some of the ships are built as a speculation), the global regulations shall be considered and a trend to be greener will also be important in Asia in the near future. And, as you know, ports are located nearby human activities and tugboats are operated mainly in these ports. This means tugboats should be greener vessels than others, regardless of environmental regulations. For example, the above-mentioned Niigata hybrid tug system has been developed and adopted in the context of reducing impact on the environment and humans. When it comes to engine demand, it is, predictably, the offshore sector which has shown the most promise. Kawakami said: In 2013, the volume of received orders went sideways in the tug market, but thanks to the booming offshore sector we could enjoy a steady increase in the OSV market. We think this solid demand for new OSVs will continue [this] year and we expect to enjoy continued growth in this market, the same as [last] year. As for tugs, the market situation will be the same; however, demands for nextgeneration tugs are be expected. A demand for offshore vessels may be a common theme throughout Asia, but a wider industry concern is drawing young people into the maritime sector. Asia is not immune to this challenge. Kawakami continued: Attracting young people and recruiting potential students has been a challenge for many years for Niigata, because our products are not so familiar to daily life and the company s scale is not large. In order to overcome these situations, we have started periodical visits to laboratories in universities to introduce Niigata to students and to keep contact with professors. The battle to recruit new talent does not stop there, said Kawakami, as retaining new staff and keeping them highly motivated is also a priority. This is achieved through activities like having overseas business trips to investigate new technologies and products, as well as joint research with other companies, along with paper presentations. Venkatraman Sheshashayee, CEO of offshore energy provider, Jaya Holdings Ltd, agrees that drawing young people into the industry is a priority, especially for countries such as Singapore and Malaysia. He said: The main issue is the lack of an holistic approach towards the attraction, development and retention of talented people, due to the fragmented and regional nature of the industry. Overall, there is a lack of awareness of our industry among youths, as well as the perception that this is a specialised knowledge and skills. The offshore industry needs to come together to market itself better, and encourage the younger generation to look at and understand the exciting and rewarding opportunities associated with an offshore career. Meanwhile, the Asian offshore industry is, he said, in good health. As of now, the OSV market looks robust in this region. Current oil prices and the need for energy security continue to support E&P investment. We believe that there will be increased activity need for more and technologically-advanced vessels to support this activity. International Tug & OSV, January/February

42 The 23 rd International Tug, Salvage and OSV Convention and Exhibition 16 th -20 th JUNE 2014 U G 46 SUCCESSFUL YEARS Sponsors & Supporting Media: Welcome Now in its 46 th year, the International Tug, Salvage & OSV Convention returns to Hamburg in 2014 after an absence of more than three decades. Approximately 13,000 sea-going vessels from all over the world enter this maritime hub every year, which is Europe s secondlargest port. An ancient and Hanseatic port, often referred to as The Gateway to the World, Hamburg has cities in Europe. ITS last visited the city in 1979 for its sixth conference, when a memorable tug ballet took place in the harbour. Much has changed since then, and glancing back through the past papers reveals a real anticipation of what the 80s would bring. Now we face a different economic climate, which has spawned new innovations, yet which further emphasises the Where better to look towards a new, dynamic future than Hamburg, with its blend of historical roots and forward-thinking? The venue ITS 2014 will take place at the city s CCH Congress Centrum, located next to the scenic Planten un Blomen Park and also conveniently adjacent to the Hamburg Dammtor station. For 40 years, since the centre opened in 1973, it has served as a conference space for various experts of every discipline, with more than 15,000 events having taken place within its walls. The ITS Convention is a much-anticipated conference and exhibition, remaining a must-attend event in the industry s calendar.

John Savignone CPT Remolcadores SA As always, it is a mustattend event for me. Hiroyuki Saito Tokyo Kisen Co Ltd A very good experience, interesting presentations on a number of hot issues, in addition to an exhibition full of professionals. Capt Carsten Nygaard Svitzer Always a pleasure. An industry leader. Capt David A Pockett London Offshore Consultants (Brazil) The vibrant city of Hamburg is home to more than 1.8 million people. It has an oceanic climate, which average high temperature in June being 20 degrees C. As a major transport hub in Europe and one of the do within the city, from touring historic areas, visiting the plentiful museums and galleries, to making the most of the night life. In and around the city A centre for arts and crafts, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe is housed in an 18 th century palace, and its collections comprise work from Europe, the Middle East and Far East, spanning all epochs, from the ancient world to the present day. Kunsthalle, a baroque building, is another art museum, which holds paintings from the 19 th century. Various works from Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, Philipp Otto Runge, Caspar David Friedrich, Adolf Menzel, as well as modern art, are featured. For a glimpse into the city s history, the harbour s development and its maritime links, visit the Hamburg Museum. It is one of many museums delving back into the city s colourful and dramatic roots. Also in the city is the privately-owned International Maritime Museum, which houses thousands of model ships, construction Touching on Hamburg s trading experience is the dockland museum, Speicherstadtmuseum, which tells the story of the district and its tea and coffee trade. Further links to the city s maritime sector can be found when visiting the Cap San Diego, the largest seaworthy cargo ship museum in the world. The ship is crewed by 45 retired sailors and is the last surviving member of a series of six fast general cargo ships built in the early 1960s. Although Cap San Diego does provide infrequent trips, one of the best ways to explore Hamburg s numerous waterways (the city has more bridges than Photo: Romanus Fuhrmann-Rickert Amsterdam, Venice and London combined) and its history, is by tourboat or ferry. A number of seasonable boat tours depart from Jungfernstieg, located on the Inner Alster lake. There are a number of green spaces and parks in Hamburg, such as Planten un Blomen, a park within that is close to the convention centre. Also worth a visit is the scenic and haunting Ohlsdorfer Friedhof; one of the world s biggest graveyards. Hamburg is home to the Hamburg State Opera House, one of the leading opera houses in Germany. There are also many theatres in the city which put on a rich selection of plays and musicals throughout the year. After a show, a tourist is spoilt for choice when it comes to dinner, as the city is home to a plethora of restaurants catering to a variety of tastes, including those offering a variety of original Hamburg dishes, such as Aalsuppe and Finkenwerder Scholle. (Fish Market), the city s oldest open-air market, dating as far back as The market takes place in the Fish Auction Hall, accompanied by live music, from 0500hrs- 0930hrs in the summer months. Hamburg is northern Germany s shopping metropolis, offering everything from fashion boutiques and Colonnaden s pedestrian shopping streets contain and Mönckebergstraße, the oldest traditional shopping district in the city, offers shoppers a variety of choice.

47 Fill the gap in knowledge and competency Operation in the Arctic is about more than designing a hull for ice. Gijsbert de Jong, development manager for OSVs and tugs, Bureau Veritas, spoke to Rebecca Ferrier about the various demands on both a vessel s structure, and its crew. Not everyone is ready for the Arctic. The challenge to tug and OSV operators and owners in the region is one which many are prepared to face: but not all companies are as prepared as they should be. Gijsbert de Jong, development manager for OSVs and tugs, Bureau Veritas, is all too aware of the multiple stresses which come from such a beautiful, yet dangerous, environment. With the respect [to] the vessels, obviously the Arctic is cold, so that means we have ice and vessels operating in ice, said de Jong. That is a challenge in terms of powering, in terms of the structure of the hull, which needs to be strong enough to withstand the forces of the ice. In many cases, OSVs, and especially towing vessels, will have to be engaged in ice-breaking activities, not only in towing and pushing operations. That means that we have to not only reinforce the hull in order to [also] breaking through ice, and that depends very much on the area of operation as to how challenging that is. We have been involved recently in a project in the Caspian Sea, not the Arctic, which is shallow water and 60-80cm of ice in the winter time, which is level ice, so it s like a sheet. We have done a project for ice-breaking tug supply boats which need to break that ice by themselves. You can but there the ice is thicker and very different in terms of what they call long-year ice: is old ice which is much harder to manage. Therefore you will have to go to very high classes of ice-breaker or Polar Class. That is on the side of powering and hull structure. It is not only the vessel which needs to be considered, but also the people who will be Jong. Obviously the crew working onboard those vessels is working in very complicated circumstances, not only because of the cold, but because of the sunlight. It s either always light or continuously dark. There s a lot of differences in weather and it is pretty hard to work under those circumstances. It goes all the way to electrical heating of equipment in order to make sure the deck winch is still working in -20 or -30 degrees C. But it also has to do with making sure that the crew gets the maximum possible support from the design of the boat, in order to be able to safely operate the vessel under complicated is really a matter of training. There are companies who already have many years of experience operating in the Arctic, both Russian and Canadian companies, North Canada. Based on that experience, I think there is already a lot of competence. Both factors, said de Jong, need to be kept in mind when contemplating operations in this area. It s almost a mixture between the design in terms of strength and in terms of capability in coping with ice and cold weather, as well as the crew s ability to deal with those circumstances. Propulsion in ice is another factor to consider when navigating. One of the critical elements is that if you are having a propeller operating in ice, it will start hitting ice blocks. Those shockloads have to be dealt with by the propeller, but also by the shaft, and ultimately by the couplings and the engine itself. So if you design a vessel that is going to operate in the Arctic, whether it s an icebreaker or simply as a boat operating take into account. Those forces are very, very important. Both for the strength and the equipment itself, in terms of peak load, but also for fatigue. If you repeat many of these impact loads, there is a risk of cracks which are going to occur in the propeller itself or in the shaft line. Operating in the Arctic is not only a technical stretch, but it is also a challenge in terms of doing things in a way which is sustainable. And in the Arctic, a long way away from help and emergency response, these forces become even more important. But, de Jong insisted, companies are not wandering into this region blind. From experience in the operations, there is a wealth of experience with ice-breaking vessels. In terms of design and in terms of regulations, I think that is a pretty good could safely operate [in the Arctic], keeping in mind the peak loads on the propulsion systems. I would say it is quite limited to a number of specialist companies; there are a number of shipyards and designers who have really specialised in designing and building ice-breaking vessels, he said. Not every design institute will have, let s say, the ability to design vessels for this. It also requires a lot of experienced feedback from the actual vessels in operation, and this is what you see with the more famous design houses. They do not only rely on the regulations, they will try to do more than that. And often they collect data onboard the vessels operating there in order to justify and validate what they re doing. As class societies we also get involved in that. Regulations adapt and the industry is forced ARCTIC OPERATIONS to adapt with them or even, in some cases, anticipate them. To give you an example of what we have been doing in BV, we have worked together with St Petersburg Maritime University and developed a calculation model on how to compute the loads of the ice on the hull of the ship structure under different conditions. What we can do is to calculate, more or less in real time, the pressure which is exerted by the ice on the hull of our icebreaking tug supply or gas carrier it can be any ship, because the lifespan of the vessel is included in the calculations, depending on the ice thickness [and] its properties. For example, the salinity of the ice has a big impact on the hardness of it, also depending on the speed go forward into the ice or do you have a stern- competency by doing these types of studies and being able to propose, in addition or next-to rules and regulations, calculations to make sure we have a good understanding of the stresses on a vessel. This knowledge is being added to by various interested parties, with numerous companies working together to identify best-practice. There is quite a lot of cooperation, de Jong continued. There are not only concerns in the design and strength issues of the vessels, but also very much in the environmental impact. Operating in the Arctic is not only a technical stretch, but it is also a challenge in terms of doing things in a way which is sustainable. From offshore interests, to sea route pathways, it will be a long wait until these become large-scale operations. Further more, according to de Jong, additional training will be needed in order to deal with the circumstances which the area presents. One of the challenges in the Arctic, for example, is how are you going to set up a support operation if somebody gets into trouble? It is not like in Western Europe where we have almost a blanket of emergency towing vessels which are there to act if something goes wrong, for example an engine failure, or another failure on the can you manage that from an emergency response point of view? It sounds like, at the moment, we re not quite ready to explore that region? On a large scale, for sure, there needs to be a lot more consideration, concluded de Jong. I think on the local scale, if you look at the local companies operating already for many years in that area, I think there s a fairly high degree of knowledge and competency there.

48 ARCTIC OPERATIONS Not only ice stands in way of Arctic drilling Photo: DNV. There is more than long-year ice preventing easy entrance into the Arctic. Rebecca Ferrier outlines the Even the best-prepared, best-equipped, and most technologically advanced oil company has no business drilling for oil in the Arctic, wrote Frances Beinecke, president of National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), on the organisation s staff blog, Switchboard. It is simply not possible to do it safely. The oil industry, not surprisingly, disagrees. Nine oil & gas companies established the Arctic Oil Spill Response Technology Joint Industry Programme (JIP), in order to advance response strategies and equipment, and research the potential impacts of oil on the Arctic marine environment. An estimated 13 per cent of the globe s undiscovered oil, and 30 per cent of undiscovered gas, is believed to be contained in the Arctic. The Arctic appears to be a solution to global energy security concerns. But the area is not without its challenges, and interested parties are right to be wary. Royal Dutch Shell, after problems with two of its drilling vessels, delayed its offshore oil exploration in Alaska s Arctic for The mishaps with Kulluk and Noble Discoverer have prompted various doubts over the industry s readiness to exploit the Arctic s rich resources. However, Shell has not ruled out Arctic exploration in 2014, after submitting plans to the US government which have not discounted activity for that year. They are not the only oil giant which has demonstrated a trepidatious approach. An uncertainty surrounding regulations prompted ConocoPhillips to postpone its plans to drill there in The NRDC cited an absence of reliable clean-up methods for spills as one important consideration for activity in the area. In Beinecke s article, Six Reasons Why Offshore Drilling in the Arctic Cannot Be Done Safely, she stressed: Spills that occurred late in the season would remain until the following year because the oil would get trapped under the ice. Cold water breaks down oil much more slowly than warm water does, which means a spill could linger for years. The Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) is not opposed to development in the region, provided it is responsible and sustainable, while avoiding any degradation of the location s healthy ecosystems. If a spill was to occur, there could be devastating consequences for those who call the Arctic home. Beinecke said: There is no back-up in the American Arctic when systems fail. The nearest cache of clean-up equipment is 2,000 miles away in Seattle. To bring rescue crews and equipment to the region, Beinecke added, would be a staggering challenge.

54 ARCTIC OPERATIONS With lengthy periods of darkness, icy obstacles and hostile conditions, safe Arctic navigation is of the utmost importance. Rebecca Ferrier spoke with Geir Olsen, product manager for Jeppesen, and Sergey Gubernatorov, country manager for Jeppesen Russia, who shared their extensive knowledge on hydrography in the Arctic, along with Russia s industry-leading advancements. smooth and safe operations a priority. Updated nautical charts, tide and current monitoring stations, as well as geodetic surveys, are only the start of ensuring reliable navigation in such an unfriendly climate. Jeppesen s Geir Olsen, product manager, and Sergey Gubernatorov, country manager for Jeppesen Russia, believe that the industry is more than capable of meeting the challenge. Academic Fedorov Arctic navigation, including navigation in convoys lead by ice-breakers, requires special training, in particular provided by the leading training centres in Finland and in St Petersburg. Sergey Gubernatorov, country manager, Jeppesen Russia 54 International Tug & OSV, January/February

55 ARCTIC OPERATIONS that requires the most extensive real-time long-term information like ice coverage, satellite images and so on. Voyage planning collaboration with dedicated ice pilots and ice routing centres is another means of effective navigation. The IMO Polar Code is also being developed in parallel with the IMO e-navigation strategy, and as such the complexity of Arctic operations is of high concern for the IMO. Ionospheric interference is another issue when navigating the Arctic but this is nothing new, said Gubernatorov. This phenomenon in polar areas was known for centuries. Of course, the quick change of particular frequencies, but special research has proved [the stable operation] of GPS/ GLONASS in the Arctic. There are a number of shore-based GPS/GLONASS reference stations covering the entire region. However, recent research by the IALA and the IMO a more resilient positioning system, and this also relates to Arctic navigation. The Russian Arctic is fully covered by long range RNS Chaika the Russian version of Loran-C, which is considered a reliable back-up to GPS/GLONASS, and was included in the global radio navigational plan of the IMO. Not only is this interference a concern to positioning systems, states Olsen, but also for communication. He said: Assuming e-navigation will require a minimum of communication to exchange information effectively like MSI, route exchange, ice information communication systems have to be in place. Iridium is the best option today with polar orbit satellites, but as more operations open up, more players will probably extend their services. Also, during an IMO polar communication in Norway in 2012, it was recognised that coastal states have a responsibility to build terrestrial communication in remote areas. For short range communication, which offshore operations normally are, UHF and VHF is used and will probably continue to be used between ship and offshore installations. For OSVs, the challenge is the requirement for resilient positioning data for dynamic positioning. This has been looked at by coastal states, said Olsen, who have deployed (from ships or offshore installations) shortrange positioning systems, such as seabed transponders, and ship-to-platform reference devices including FanBeam, CyScan, Artemis, which was used before GPS and Glonass became highly precised. Short-range communications do not look to be a problem, said Olsen. The challenge is that more data exchange is required, but coastal states and commercial operators, together with the offshore installation operators, will work together to close this gap. For example, in the North Sea today there is almost a continuously mobile coverage from the South Western coast of Norway to the north east coast of Scotland, due to the installation of mobile transponders on offshore installations. There is a wealth of advice, guidance and instruction on Arctic operations. Although it might seem as though the industry is wellprepared, more needs to be done, according to Olsen. There are a number of research articles, industry papers and so on dealing with this subject dissemination of the information to a minimum need-to-know paper according to the vessel or offshore installation operation is probably the challenge. The IMO should be the owner of the overall guidelines with the Polar Code. Then the industry and governmental bodies must work together on best practice operational guides. For example, The North West European Area Guidelines for the Safe Management of Offshore Supply and Anchor Handling Operation were developed in 2006 as a joint project between maritime and offshore organisations in Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway and the UK. Olsen concluded: Good voyage planning (with support from computerised tools), risk analysis, equipment design and taking into account the human element seem obvious. However, they need to be incorporated as part of the International Safety Management Code, and the management from CEOs, to offshore installation managers. Finally, he added, the crew s importance cannot be overlooked: Captains need to establish a culture for safe Arctic operations.

72 PRODUCTS & SERVICES Tug & OSV Annual Review 2013 Edited by Tricia McLeod The ABR Company Ltd ISBN: pages 30 plus P&P (or free of charge with all new subscriptions to International Tug & OSV magazine and to ITS Club members, and with a 30 per cent discount for additional copies for ITS Club members) The latest Tug & OSV Annual Review, tugs and OSVs that have been delivered over the past year or so, is the biggest ever. Featuring full delivery reports on 41 vessels, Wärtsilä has introduced a new series of both steerable and transverse thrusters. The Wärtsilä Steerable Thruster series (WST) is being introduced to replace the company s Modular Thruster and Compact Thruster series, while the new Wärtsilä Transverse Thruster series (WTT) is replacing the current range of transverse thrusters. The Marine Rescue Technologies has introduced two new man overboard technology products in its smrt range, designed and developed to meet new international standards worldwide. The smrt V100 is, says the company, the world s most advanced alerting and tracking MOB device. Just 30 seconds after the MOB hits the water, the auto activating smrt V100 sends an alert to the vessel s VHF DSC radio. Should the vessel not acknowledge, the alert will retransmit to every VHF DSC radio nearby. The person s GPS position is updated every minute via AIS so you know exactly where they are. The device has a 150-mile transmission range, with worldwide satellite Meanwhile, the smrt AU10 automatically alerts on 121.5MHz and tracks casualties via AIS to within 10m. Again with GPS position updated every minute via AIS, your vessel, most including detailed GA drawings, the review also has a 26-page Deliveries in Brief section, taking in a further 69 tugs and OSVs. The vessels represent a remarkable range of builders worldwide, in locations including Estonia, the Netherlands, the US, Turkey, Vietnam, Spain, Russia, China, Malaysia, Dubai, Japan, Romania, Italy and Indonesia. The publication is wide in its scope: vessel lengths range from Panda, at 18.8m, to Seven Viking at 106.5m. In his insightful overview of current trends in tug and OSV building, former IT&O editor Andy Smith common themes in vessels of such diverse types and usage. But there is one. Owners are beginning some would say at last to understand the importance of crew wellbeing, or, to put it bluntly, learning that fatigue can lead to carelessness, accidents and expensive downtime. All vessels in the main delivery reports including dimensions, performance, main engines, propulsion and equipment. As a vessel with very powerful engines and deck machinery. To describe one without giving full details of both is like describing a Formula 1 Grand Prix race without mentioning the name of the driver or the products have been developed in response to changing market demands, requiring competitive thruster products which are more This major product development project was originally launched by Wärtsilä s Propulsion R&D in The latest insights in thruster design were implemented using and every vessel nearby, become instant SAR assets. Automatic activation alerts every victims are tracked up to 75 miles away. Marine Rescue Technologies director, Jon Gething, said: Experience has taught us a lot over the last 40 years, and MRT are both experienced and committed to providing total safety solutions through our vital smrt range of life-saving equipment. One of the most important things with regard to MOB beacons is that they are professionally integrated within a lifejacket. This is why we offer a complete smrt solution by incorporating either a 275N or 150N SOLAS approved PFD with our new technology beacons. This ensures complete operability of the combination and that the the person wearing the equipment the best chance of survival in an MOB incident. The latest edition of the Tug & OSV Review draws together some of the year s most marque of the winning car. An indispensable guide to which tug and OSV owners, designers and builders are doing what, where, and for whom. state-of-the-art numerical simulation tools. is a 4,500kW underwater (de)-mountable steerable thruster, the WST-45-U, which began its pilot phase in summer Two more products, the WST-14 and the WTT- 11, are scheduled to begin their pilot phase before the end of this year. Wärtsilä will continue the introduction of different sizes of thrusters in the coming years based on market requirements and customer priorities. The new thrusters are available for various types of vessel depending on the size and features of the product. For example, the WST-45-U is designed mainly for the offshore drilling market; the WST-14 is intended for tugs up to 45 tonnes BP, inland waterway vessels, and for river/sea-going cargo ships. This thruster is compatible with both medium-speed and high-speed (1,800 rev/min) diesel engines. The WTT-11 is a 1,100kW tunnel thruster designed mainly for merchant cargo vessels. The new WST and WTT units have added features, such as an increased power range, an eight-degree tilted propeller gearbox, and a new Wärtsilä Thruster Nozzle for the thrusters designed for offshore drilling. Those intended for tugboat applications also have the new nozzle, which improves performance and has a high level of system integration. 72 International Tug & OSV, January/February
