Austal completes Sea Fighter maintenance



In conjunction with prime contractor BAE Systems Southeast Shipyards Alabama, Austal USA, has completed a four-month drydocking and shipyard availability for the Sea Fighter (FSF-1).

The Panama City, Fla., based Sea Fighter is an aluminum catamaran operated by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) that has been used to test technologies for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) and Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV) programs.

Under a very aggressive schedule, Austal workers installed a new Counter Measure Washdown (CMWD) System designed to help keep future Naval combatants operational in a nuclear, biological or chemical battle-space. Other Austal work items included the modification of ballast tanks and the installation of water jet skirts on both hulls.

Austal's pipe department installed a fuel centrifuge piping system that which will allow the crew the opportunity to remove fuel contaminants. Other work items included the manufacture of aluminum ladders and work platforms for the water jets, along with repair of the aluminum hull.

This work was completed on time and on budget.

COSCO eyes "better box"



COSCO chairman Wei Jiafu believes container shipping to fare better in 2012.

Wei told the TPM 2012 conference that the global container market would fare better this year because of the consistent growth of US and China economies.

However, he warned the market rise would accompanied by fluctuations.

With many container lines plunging steeply into the red in 2011 due to low freight rates Wei called on both lines and shippers to restore reasonable freight rate levels.

Market entry beckons for ME-GI


The ME-GI engine pictured at MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Diesel Research Centre in Copenhagen

In separate announcements at MAN Diesel & Turbo’s second ME-GI test demonstration for customers in Copenhagen on 6 March, HHI-EMD – the Engine and Machinery Division of Hyundai Heavy Industries – and Mitsui Engineering and Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. stated that they intend to build prototypes of MAN Diesel & Turbo’s gas engine.

The announcements effectively mean that the ME-GI has edged even closer to commercial production.

Both companies intend to carry out full-scale demonstrations of the ME-GI principle based on the temporary conversion of existing production engines to ME-GI units.

Accordingly, Hyundai intends to convert an 8S70ME-GI unit in November 2012, while Mitsui will convert a 6S70ME-GI unit in the second quarter of 2013.

MAN Diesel & Turbo sees the announcement of the demonstrations as stemming from customer requests to employ the ME-GI engine in new projects and states that production capability for the ME-GI is already available. Similarly, the company also reports that test beds and ancillary gas-supply systems will also be available in time for ME-GI delivery.

Ole Grøne, Senior Vice President Low-Speed Promotion & Sales, MAN Diesel & Turbo said: “We view this latest development in the ME-GI project as very positive. It is immensely encouraging that some of our biggest licensees, based in the greatest shipbuilding countries in the world, are showing such tangible interest in this gas engine.” Grøne attributed the licensee announcements of full-scale ME-GI demonstrations to customer interest and said: “Over the years, MAN Diesel & Turbo has staged tests in Copenhagen with excellent results where we have improved efficiency and lowered pilot injection volumes, but these full-scale demonstrations mark the most significant milestone yet for the ME-GI.”

Unveiled at a major event at MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Copenhagen Diesel Research Centre in May 2011, the ME-GI engine represents the culmination of many years’ work that began in the 1990s with the company’s prototype MC-GI dual-fuel engine. The first two-stroke GI engine, a 12K80MC-GI-S, entered service at a power plant in Chiba, near Tokyo, Japan in 1994.

The ME-GI engine is a gas-injection, dual-fuel, low-speed diesel engine that, when acting as main propulsion in LNG carriers or any other type of merchant marine vessel, can burn gas or fuel-oil at any ratio, depending on the energy source available on board and dictated by relative cost and owner preference. Indeed, Mitsui reports adopting twin ME-GI engines as prime movers aboard its concept LNG carrier ‘Double Eco MAX’ in July 2011, a move that intends to realise a 30% reduction in fuel costs and CO2 emissions.

Depending on relative price and availability, as well as environmental considerations, the ME-GI engine gives shipowners and operators the option of using either gas or HFO.

MAN Diesel & Turbo sees significant opportunities arising for gas-fuelled tonnage as fuel prices rise and modern exhaust-emission limits tighten. Indeed, previous research indicates that the ME-GI engine, when combined with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and waste-heat recovery (WHR) technologies, delivers significant reductions in CO2, NOx and SOx emissions fulfilling Tier-II and Tier-III regulations.

MAN Diesel & Turbo predicts a broad, potential market for its ME-GI engine, extending from LNG and LPG carriers to other oceangoing vessel segments such as containerships as well as ships plying a fixed trade. As such, the ME-GI engine represents a highly efficient, flexible, propulsion-plant solution.

China & Korea: Comparative analysis



Chinese yards have played a good game in commercial ship market with low labor cost, abundant resources, while South Korean rivals are recently making profits from high-value ship and offshore market with high-end technology.

As Chinese government actively supports its shipbuilding industry, competitions between the two leading shipbuilding countries are getting tougher.

Comparing technical skills between Korean and Chinese shipbuilders, putting Korea's technical standards at 100, China's designing skill, construction skill and management skill stand at 75, 75 and 62.5, respectively, which shows quite big gaps between them.

In case of production efficiency, Korea's output per man is about 4m-5m dwt, while China's about 1.5m dwt. Korea's production value per man is CNY 2m-4m and China's CNY 0.5m-1m and Korea's working hours per cgt is 10-15 hours and China "targets" 15 hours by 2015.

As for industry consolidation, as of the end of 2010, 19 Korean yards have exceeded cumulative delivery of 1m dwt each, up by eight yards year-on-year. Korean shipbuilders in Top 20 take about 67.6% with overall delivery of 44.34m dwt and 66.1% with overall order intake of 49.75m dwt. Chinese turn out to fall behind from those numbers.

It seems that South Korea's large-sized shipbuilding industrial clusters in Busan and South Kyongsang Province take great part in development of Korean shipbuilding industry.

Lastly, Korea's localization of marine equipment is almost 90% while China only remains at 54% and 30%, in case of high-value equipment.

Korean CVC goes to NYK



The state-controlled utility firm Korea East-West Power (KEW)'s first tender for one 200,000-dwt bulker and one 90,000-dwt bulker under long-term consecutive voyage charter (CVC) contracts, issued on February 21, went to NYK Bulkship Korea of Japan.

South Korean shipping companies are infuriated by the move.

KEW has recently announced that it chose NYK for its first CVC tender launched on Feb 21 and Polaris Shipping and Hansung Line of South Korea for the second tender issued on March 6, as the final bidders.

Regarding this, officials from the Korea Shipowners' Association (KSA) said, "A decision made by one of largest state-owned Korea Electric Power Corporation's subsidiaries, Korea East-West Power, to give coal-carrier CVCs toward Japanese company seems that KEW has ignored national and public interests as well as had domestic shipping industry falter." Emphasized, "This must be corrected."

They insiste, "KEW tricked us Korean shipping companies by breaking custom of making an immediate announcement and having announced the result of the first tender later together with the second one."

Wartsila medium-voltage Power Drive


Wärtsilä, the marine industry's leading systems integrator and solutions provider, has launched its new Medium Voltage Power Drive.

The product will enable the delivery of electro and automation systems for large, electric propulsion vessels, such as drilling rigs and tankers, large passenger and cruise ships, various offshore service vessels, as well as compressors and pumps for the oil & gas industry.

The addition of this medium voltage unit to the low voltage power drive range that Wärtsilä has offered since 2005 further enhances the company's total solutions offering to the shipping industry.

Wärtsilä's new Medium Voltage Power drive is especially designed for marine applications, while the previous units in this range were first developed for land-based applications. It has been developed with special attention paid to personnel safety, while the modular design allows easy installation and maintenance.

With the new power drive, Wärtsilä will be able to offer medium voltage Low Loss Concept (LLC) solutions with increased efficiency and redundancy, which in turn leads to lower fuel consumption and reduced operating costs. It can also enable the possibility of having less power installed, thus benefiting customers by reducing both capital and operational expenditures.

Development work began in 2009, and has been carried out at Wärtsilä's R&D facilities in Norway. Pilot sales are scheduled to begin this year, with an internal pilot to be installed in early 2013 and an external pilot later in that year.

Daewoo eyes LNGC deal



Greek owner Almi Tankers is said to have moved closer to ordering its first LNG carrier after its favoured shipbuilder, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, offered it a slot for delivery for year-end 2014.

Sources close to the newbuilding project, which is thought to involve up to two tri-fuel vessels of 160,000 cu m, said that Almi also had the option for a second delivery slot a year later.

Daewoo is already building Almi a series of 10 suezmax tankers and a pair of very large crude carriers, which the Greek buyer was initially thought to have considered swapping for one LNG carrier. However, it has since emerged that the owner has spoken to an oil major about long-term bareboat chartering the two VLCCs, with two optional VLCCs also said to be under discussion.

The Costas Fostiropoulos-led company now appears to have switched its attention to contracting at least one LNG carrier from scratch, in addition to the big tankers.

Discussions are understood to be taking place with undisclosed oil majors about chartering and about technical management for the LNG tonnage.

Currently, South Korean shipbuilding giant DSME is said to be quoting about $210m for a single LNG carrier or about $200m for more than one order.
