[Ship Building] COSCO to win kamsarmax BCs

Greece's Chartworld Shipping has finally inked a letter of intent to build kamsarmax bulkers.

The Kollakis family company has been keen to contract the newbuildings since last year.

Initially, the owner planned to order two newbuildings plus further options at China's Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding but it has penned the LOI with COSCO Shipyard Group.

Brokers have publicly attributed a price of about $30m per ship to the project.

[Equipment] Wartsila new JV facilities in Russia


[Equipment] Wartsila new JV facilities in Russia

June 28, 2012 - Wärtsilä TMH Diesel Engine Company LLC, a joint venture owned 50/50 by Wärtsilä and Transmashholding (TMH), is ready to start construction of a modern factory located in Penza, Russia.

The new plant, which is expected to be ready to start production in summer 2013, will provide world-class assembly and manufacturing facilities.

The joint venture is strategically important for Wärtsilä since it broadens the company's business activities into the rail market, while giving Wärtsilä a stronger industrial foothold in Russia.

Wärtsilä and Transmashholding signed the joint venture agreement in May 2010. The intention is to manufacture modern and multi-purpose diesel engines, including a technically advanced version of the Wärtsilä 20 engine, in Russia.

The engines will be used in shunter locomotives, as well as for various marine and land-based power applications, and are intended primarily for the Russian market. There are also export possibilities outside Russia, including to Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries.

"These new facilities will expand our diesel engine production capacity in Russia and increase our competitiveness throughout the region. With this state-of-the-art plant, we can develop and produce high quality engines that meet the specific requirements of our customers across Russia, and provide them with locally produced and serviced power solutions," says Lars Hellberg, Group Vice President, Wärtsilä Industrial Operations.

The construction work on the 10,000 m2 factory will commence after finalized permission procedures. The factory will be located within the premises of Penzadieselmash, a TMH company. Annual production is expected to be 250 to 300 engines, and the plant will eventually employ some 300 people. Wärtsilä has a 30 year history in Russia, and this latest development represents a notable milestone in its expansion strategy in that market.

[Marine] KBR wins pre-FEED for FLNG


[Marine] KBR wins pre-FEED for FLNG

Houston-based engineering company KBR recently announced that it was selected as Höegh’s preferred engineer to execute pre-FEED studies for two of its projects off the coast of Israel and offshore Australia.

KBR will provide the pre-FEED study for the King liquefied natural gas-floating production storage and offloading (LNG-FPSO) facility currently being evaluated for Noble Energy's giant Tamar gas field off the coast of Israel. KBR has developed FPSOs that are in use worldwide and is recognized as one of the world's leading providers of onshore LNG plants and FPSOs.

Höegh LNG awarded KBR a second FLNG pre-FEED study for an unnamed project offshore Australia. The four-month pre-FEED is intended to provide a Total Installed Cost (TIC) estimate for a two mtpa FLNG facility to enable further evaluation of the project. KBR will perform a cost estimate study, taking Höegh’s existing generic LNG FPSO FEED study and adapting the capex cost for the operator’s field-specific basis of design. Should the project economics prove viable, FEED could start as early as 4Q 2012.

Both projects will be performed in KBR’s London Operating Center, utilizing the company’s substantial and growing FLNG engineering capability spread over the London, Houston and Perth offices.

"We are excited about providing the initial engineering work for an innovative LNG FPSO solution to support Höegh LNG's already-developed concept,” said Roy Oelking, KBR Group President, Hydrocarbons. “We are pleased to work with Höegh LNG, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., and the Tamar field owners in developing one of the first LNG FPSOs to come to market. KBR has been working with Höegh LNG since 2010 and we are confident that, together, we will help Höegh deliver the optimum solution for bringing Tamar gas to the market."

[Marine] Japan gears up offshore wind


[Marine] Japan gears up offshore wind

Four different designs for offshore wind floating platforms will be installed off the coast of Fukushima in 2013 and 2014, as part of a demonstration project funded entirely by the Japanese government.

Eleven companies and/or organisations will collaborate on the Fukushima floating offshore wind farm demonstration (Forward) project, with Japanese conglomerate Marubeni leading the project team.

Companies contributing innovative floating platform designs include IHI Marine United, Mitsubishi and Mitsui.

The project's first stage is due to be completed by August 2013, and will involve installation of a floating substation and a 2MW downwind floating turbine, carried by a compact semi-sub.

By August 2014, two further turbines – 7MW designs by Mitsubishi – will be installed, one to be carried by a v-shape semi-sub and the other by an advanced spur.

Discussing the plans at the recent Global Offshore conference held in London, Forward project leader, Tomofumi Fukuda, explained that "we couldn't do this project without full funding from the government". The equivalent of $300m has been set aside by the Japanese department of trade, economic and industry to pursue the project.

The government hopes that the Forward project will result in the emergence of one or more commercially-viable designs for offshore wind floating platforms.

A second demonstration project, in the Goto islands, is based around a floating platform that carries both a substation and a turbine. This project is being funded by Japan's environment ministry. A small 110kW turbine was erected this month, with a plan to replace it with a 2MW turbine next year.

[Ship Building] Samsung offshore orders exceed 90%


[Ship Building] Samsung offshore orders exceed 90%

Offshore segment orders account for over 90% of the newbuilding deals secured by Samsung Heavy Industries so far this year, according to Morgan Stanley.

Ensco recently inked a further drillship at the South Korean shipbuilder.

The world’s largest shipbuilder has now won orders worth $6.6bn in the year-to-date says the US investment bank.

The Ensco order now means 50% of Samsung’s orders so far this year are for drillships, with 41% for offshore central processing facility.

Taking into consideration LNG orders, which account for 6% of its order haul this year, conventional ship orders make up only 3% of orders so far in 2012.

Looking at Samsung’s total order backlog, which is valued at some $38.3bn, offshore-related orders make up 62% of this, says Morgan Stanley.

Production units make up 31%, drilling rigs 29%, LNG carriers 14% and wind turbine installation vessels 1%. Conventional ships make up only 25%.

“Commercial vessel markets have remained eerily calm for more than a year or so, yet supply-demand dynamics for big-ticket projects such as offshore and LNG markets are still robust,” says Morgan Stanley’s Sangkyoo Park and Candice Kim.
