[Marine] Siemens installs offshore WT

Siemens installs offshore WT

Hamburg, Germany, 2012-Dec-19 - Siemens Energy has installed the prototype of a new four-megawatt (MW) wind turbine in Østerild, Denmark.
The new wind turbine type is a designated SWT-4.0 and is based on the proven technology of the SWT-3.6, the world's most popular offshore wind turbine.

The prototype 4.0 MW turbine is initially equipped with the standard 120 meter rotor of the 3.6 MW turbine but will shortly be upgraded with a 130 meter rotor using 63 meter long rotor blades. Following extensive testing the SWT-4.0-130 will be launched for sale with the 130 meter rotor diameter in spring 2013.

The picture shows the prototype of a new Siemens 4-megawatt (MW) wind turbine in Østerild, Denmark. The new wind turbine type is a designated SWT-4.0 and is based on the proven technology of the SWT-3.6, the world’s most popular offshore wind turbine.

"Thanks to a generator and rotor upgrade, the new 4MW allows our customers a faster return on investment than our proven 3.6 MW wind turbine. We expect this product to further strengthen our leading role on the global offshore wind markets", says Henrik Stiesdal, Chief Technology Officer of the Wind Power Division. The SWT-4.0-130 extends the performance of the proven Siemens SWT-3.6 wind turbine, which is already established as the preferred offshore turbine type in the multi-megawatt class. So far, Siemens has installed almost 500 of its 3.6 MW wind turbines and has another 1200 turbines in its order backlog.

The new Siemens SWT-4.0-130 makes use of several key technologies that are well-proven in offshore applications of the market-leading Siemens 3.6 MW turbine. The nacelle and tower structures are essentially upgraded 3.6 MW variants, and the blades are manufactured using the proven Siemens IntegralBlade® technology without glue joints. New technologies of the SWT-4.0-130 include the new aeroelastically tailored 63 meter (B63) blade featuring improved performance and reduced loads. Serial production of the SWT-4.0-130 is planned for 2015.

Wind Power is part of Siemens' Environmental Portfolio. In fiscal 2011, revenue from the Portfolio totaled about €30 billion, making Siemens one of the world's largest suppliers of ecofriendly technologies. In the same period, our products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by nearly 320 million tons, an amount equal to the total annual CO2 emissions of Berlin, Delhi, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London, New York, Singapore and Tokyo.

[Marine] Arctech builds Russian icebreaker

Arctech builds Russian icebreaker

Dec. 19, 2012 - Arctech Helsinki Shipyard has been awarded a contract to build a 16 MW icebreaker for the Russian Ministry of Transport. The contract has been awarded together with OJCS Vyborg Shipyard. The total value of the vessel is about EUR 100 million.

The project will start immediately and the vessel will be delivered to the client in August 2015. The vessel is planned to be used in year-round operation in the Baltic Sea and in summer season in the Arctic seas. The vessel is able to operate in temperatures as cold as -40°С and the maximum icebreaking capability is 1.5 m.

The vessel belongs to series of three new buildings ordered by the Russian Ministry of Transport from Vyborg Shipyard. The basic design and purchasing of major components will be provided by Vyborg Shipyard as well as almost half of the vessels hull blocks. Arctech will be responsible of the construction, outfitting and commissioning of the vessel.

“This order is very important for Arctech Helsinki Shipyard. It gives us a good base work load for the next two years. It is also a positive continuation of the icebreaking rescue vessel, that Russian Ministry of Transport ordered a year ago, and which we are building together with Yantar Shipyard”, says Esko Mustamäki, Managing Director of Arctech Helsinki Shipyard.

“This order is undoubtedly the next step in the development of co-operation between Vyborg Shipyard and Arctech Helsinki Shipyard. In addition to this, adding one technically advanced vessel to our order books, which the 16 MW icebreaker is, allows both companies to present themselves as forerunners in building icebreaking special vessels”, says Aleksandr Solovyev, the Managing Director of Vyborg Shipyard.

The main tasks of the vessel are icebreaking and assisting of heavy-tonnage vessels in ice, towing of vessels and other floating structures in ice and open water. The vessel will also be used for fire fighting on floating objects and other facilities, assisting vessels in distress in ice and open water and also for cargo transportation.

The vessel will measure 119.8 m in length and 27.5 m in breadth. The four main diesel generator sets have the total power of 27 MW. The total propulsion power is 18 MW consisting of two full-circle azimuth thrusters.

[Marine] Pangea eyes FLNG in US

 Pangea eyes FLNG in US

Pangea LNG (North America) Holdings, LLC is to file an application with the US Department of Energy for the authorization to export 8 million tonnes per annum of LNG worldwide from South Texas LNG Export project.

Late last month the FLNG developer had announced that it has begun the process of seeking approvals necessary to build a liquefied natural gas export facility on Corpus Christi Bay in South Texas.

Then Pangea has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Energy seeking authority to export up to eight million metric tons per year of liquefied natural gas to all current and future countries with which the U.S. has a Free Trade Agreement.

Now it also files a similar application for LNG exports to any country with which the U.S. does not have a Free Trade Agreement in effect.

The project is located in the city of Ingleside on the La Quinta Ship Channel which is part of the Port of Corpus Christi. The project will be known as South Texas LNG Export.

The South Texas LNG Export project will require federal, state and local regulatory approval. The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is the lead agency in the permitting process.

If this process moves forward on schedule the South Texas LNG terminal could be in operation by 2018. Floating LNG production facility and onshore facility will be utilized.

Dec. 20, 2012 - ULSTEIN has entered into a contract with Island Offshore and their American partner Edison Chouest Offshore for the delivery of a multifunctional offshore vessel based on ULSTEIN’s SX121 design, with an option for an additional vessel. The vessel is prepared and tailored for the well intervention, IMR and SURF segments, and meets the latest requirements for both well intervention and offshore construction work. The newbuild is scheduled for delivery in May 2014.

“We are very happy that Island Offshore once again has ordered an advanced offshore construction vessel from ULSTEIN. We will do our utmost to deliver a quality vessel that they can benefit from for many years to come,” says Gunvor Ulstein, CEO in Ulstein Group.

“We are looking forward to adding this vessel to our fleet. The cooperation between our two companies has been very good on previous building projects, and we are looking forward to working with ULSTEIN on the construction of this multifunctional vessel,” says Håvard Ulstein, Managing Director in Island Offshore.

The ship will be based on the proven and solid SX121 design, a platform on which ULSTEIN has previously built five ships. She will be customised to meet Island Offshore’s functional requirements and wishes, which are based on their experience from the type of operations the vessel will be performing. The 130 metre long and 25 metre wide ship will have the highest standard of dynamic positioning (DP3) and will be equipped to perform subsea operations at depths down to 3000 metres. The vessel can be rigged for well intervention and is prepared for the laying of flexible pipes and cables on the seabed through a VLS tower (vertical lay system). It also has room for a rotating carousel below deck with a capacity to load 2500 tons.

An active heave compensated (AHC) offshore crane with a 250-ton capacity at 14 metres outreach and a below-deck winch will be installed on board. The vessel will carry two deep-sea work ROVs (remotely operated vehicle), one to be launched from the starboard side and one through the vessel’s moon pool. The ship is designed with a large cargo deck for transport of equipment for a multitude of operations. She will be equipped with diesel electric propulsion and three azimuth main thrusters powered by six large generator sets.

The vessel with a crew capacity of 130 will be built in accordance with the latest international environmental and safety requirements and will meet the most stringent HSE requirements on the Norwegian continental shelf as well as regulations for floating oil and gas installations. Consequently, the ship also complies with the ESD requirements (Emergency Shut-Down). In the event of evacuation, both the starboard and port side life boat can accommodate the entire crew.

Island Offshore currently has four vessels delivered by ULSTEIN in their fleet: The well stimulation vessel ‘Island Patriot’, the subsea construction vessel ‘Island Pioneer’, and the two subsea construction and intervention vessels of SX121 design, ‘Island Constructor’ and ‘Island Intervention’.
