The technology group Wärtsilä has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Global Energy Ventures (GEV) of Australia, a company specialized in delivering compressed shipping solutions for transporting energy to regional markets. The two companies will cooperate on the inclusion of Wärtsilä propulsion systems in GEV’s compressed hydrogen (C-H2) ships. The MOU was signed in Sydney, Australia.The cooperation aims at advancing GEV’s approval in principle (AIP) application for its new 430-ton C-H2 vessel. It is also intended to demonstrate the availability of a highly efficient, low-emissions propulsion system for the vessel.
DynaFlow's underwater jet cleaning diver tool is designed to reduce propeller fouling removal maintenance time and without being abrasive to the propeller blades.The company second generation Dynajets Non-Abrasive Diver Tool (NADT) is designed to be small, lightweight and quiet.The NADT uses resonating and cavitating jet nozzles in a rotating head housed in a shroud that protects the surface being cleaned and reduces the noise. The NADT was shown to remove propeller fouling including calcareous growth and hard and soft biofouling with no damage to the underlying propeller metal.
