[Catalogs] AIR PURGE TYPE BALLAST & DRAFT LEVEL GAUGING SYSTEM



AIR PURGE TYPE BALLAST & DRAFT LEVEL GAUGING SYSTEM





Principle of Operation
The principle of operation is based on the measurement of the hydrostatic pressure by providing a constant low flow of air or neutral gas into a probe which opens at the tank bottom. the output pneumatic signal of the modulator is fed into P/I converter and is changed to electric signal (4~20mA) in 2 wire by P/I convertor. The electric ouptup signal (4~20mA) can be connected to C.R.T display cargo system, Digital indicator, analogue type indicators, etc. or a combination of these system.

Application
  • Liquid level of measuring depth pressure is indicated for direct reading, and then the high precision is achieved. 
  • The construction is simple and the handling and maintenance are easy.
  • 4~20mA output signal 2-wires.
  • Blowing valve is select type (change over type). 
  • Included stop valve at air purge head, other pressure in no need for line leakage test.


Features
  • Ballast tank remote reading
  • Draft remote reading
  • fuel oil tank remote reading
  • All liquids even viscous ones

P+S Werften ro-pax delayed



Baltic Sea ferry operator Scandlines has announced that its latest newbuildings, the ro-pax ferries Berlin and Copenhagen, will be delivered considerably later than expected from Germany’s P+S Werften shipbuilding group.

Berlin is now expected to be in service by July 1 and Copenhagen should follow by September 1, four months later than Scandlines planned in February when it announced that it would name the first vessel on March 9. The date was then postponed to May 3 to enable a double naming ceremony for both vessels. This too has now also been cancelled.

“We had obviously hoped for more progress... at the yard but have to adjust to the circumstances to ensure smooth operations and a high service level for our customers during the peak season,” said Scandlines chief operating officer, Søren Poulsgaard-Jensen.

“Still we expect the yard to overcome the current challenges as soon as possible to avoid any further delays.”

Liberia ups Greek controlled fleet


The Greek Shipping Co-operation Committee (GSCC) has confirmed that Liberia is the leading independent ship register of choice for Greek-controlled shipping companies, second only to the Greek flag itself.

Figures released by the GSCC show that, in the year ended 31 March, 2012, Liberia experienced a net increase of 38 Greek-controlled ships aggregating 4.63m dwt.

In the same twelve-month period, Panama and Cyprus, respectively, lost 33 and 25 Greek-controlled ships. In deadweight terms, seventeen per cent of Greek-controlled ships are now registered with Liberia, compared to 22 per cent flying the Greek flag.

Although the Greek-controlled fleet decreased in terms of ship numbers in the year under review from 3,848 to 3,760 vessels, the GSCC says that gross tonnage rose from 153.13m gt to 155.90m gt, while, in deadweight terms, the increase was from 261.68m dwt to 264.05m dwt, a new record in the 25 years since the GSCC first published statistics.

The latest figures include 437 newbuildings, aggregating more than 25m dwt, on order with shipyards around the world.

ABB expands India facilities


ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, will invest around $50 million to build new facilities in India to manufacture high-voltage products and transformers. The expansion is part of ABB’s strategy to locally develop, manufacture and market products that meet the needs of Indian customers, the Group's press release said.

“This decision supports our in country for country approach and our business philosophy to locate production facilities closer to markets,” said Bernhard Jucker, head of ABB’s Power Products division. “By expanding our extensive manufacturing footprint in India, we can provide customers with an extended offering as well as deliver fast and cost-effective solutions suited to local needs.”

The facilities will be located in the western state of Gujarat and produce high-voltage gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) and PASS (plug and switch system) hybrid switchgear as well as dry-type and oil immersed distribution transformers. The facilities are expected to be operational by the end of 2012.

A pioneer in GIS technology, ABB`s latest series can offer space savings of up to 90 percent compared to conventional air-insulated switchgear. Its low-weight, robust design enables the equipment to be deployed even in harsh conditions and enhances system reliability, improves efficiency and minimizes maintenance needs.

ABB’s PASS is a hybrid switchgear solution that combines features of air- and gas-insulated technologies. It incorporates the functions of a complete switchgear bay in a single module, and can be installed in a few hours. Compared to conventional technology, ABB`s factory-assembled solution requires up to 60 percent less space, and is easily integrated into existing substations, which enables bay extensions with minimum down time.

The new transformer factory will manufacture vacuum cast coil dry-type transformers and oil immersed distribution transformers. It will help to bridge a gap in the present product offering in India and extend the distribution transformer range up to 10 megavolt amperes (MVA), 33 kilovolts (kV). It will also enable localization of vacuum cast coil dry-type transformers.

Welcome ordering season



As seasonal ordering peak of the second quarter has started, South Korean shipbuilders' share prices showed an upturn on April 18.

Analyst Kim Hong-Gyun, Dongbu Securities said, "Orderings for offshore drilling and production facilities and gas carriers will last in Q2, as well. Moreover, containership and car carriers are to be contracted."

Kim said, "Orders for several projects, such as Malaysian Petronas FLNG totalling $1bn, etc., are to be announced in early May. Besides, as around $13.2bn of offshore projects are scheduled during Q2, Korean major yards would likely to secure huge contracts."

Also, prospected earnings recovery has a positive impact on share prices. Kim said, "Five of listed yards' combined operation margin for Q1 is estimated to be around 5.6%, up from 5.3% in Q4 2011."

Added, "With iron-ore price falling, thick plate prices would accordingly drop. Unburdened pressures for rising raw material costs, yards seem to improve profits onwards."

Daewoo "half way through"



Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, having already achieved about 45% of 2012 new order target, looks forward to securing newbuilding drillship as with field development increasing at the Gulf of Mexico.

Analyst Yum Dong-Eun, HMC Investment & Securities said on April 17, "As of April 16, with contracts totalling $5bn, Daewoo reached 45% of new order guidance for 2012, $11bn."

Added, "Orderings from offshore sector has led the first quarter. Recently, it contracted two newbuildings with Angelicoussis Group's LNG subsidiary Maran Gas, its first order for LNG carrier this year."

HMC's Yum forecast, "Daewoo seems possibly to ink additional drillship, as active drilling operation in the Gulf of Mexico. Besides, Samsung Heavy Industries and Hyundai Heavy Industries would also gain benefits from increasing demand for drilling facilities."

However, he said, "Without recovery in ship-related indexes, such as newbuilding price, etc., it is hard to expect that Daewoo's share price would see a continued rally. Trading on the basis of valuation is suggested."
