Turkish boat builder Sefine Shipyard has won a contract to supply Norwegian operator Boreal with five electric ferries – each supported by two Volvo Penta D13 MG IMO III generator sets (gensets). The ferries will operate to-and-from the islands in the inner Oslo fjord and run scheduled services throughout the day. The Multi Maritime-designed vessels will each have a length of 35 meters, a beam of eight meters, and two passenger decks capable of accommodating up to 350 people.The ferries will be built under DNV-GL classification regulations.
MAN Energy Solutions announced Thursday it has won the contract to supply complete propulsion packages to two OPV-45 offshore patrol vessels currently under construction at one of the largest privately owned shipbuilding and repair facilities in the Eastern Mediterranean.Israel Shipyards in Haifa is constructing the new patrol boats for an undisclosed African navy. The vessels are designed for a wide range of missions, including protection against the increasing threat of piracy in the region.The OPV-45 has an overall length of 45.7 m, a displacement of some 300 tons. They are capable of sustained speeds above 24 knots and have maximum range of over 3,500 nautical miles.
The technology group Wärtsilä said it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) tied to a License and Cooperation agreement with U.K.-based Anemoi Marine Technologies for the future sales and servicing of Rotor Sail solutions to the shipping industry.Rotor Sails, also referred to as Flettner Rotors, are comprised of vertical cylinders which, when driven to rotate, harness the renewable power of the wind to propel ships. These highly efficient mechanical sails capitalize on the aerodynamic phenomenon known as the Magnus Effect to provide additional thrust to vessels and deliver significant fuel and emission savings.
As crews began returning to U.S. Gulf of Mexico offshore facilities on Thursday, this year's repeated oil and gas production halts were already hitting energy firms' results.Eight named storms entered the U.S. Gulf of Mexico this year, most spiraling up to damaging storms that required offshore facility evacuations or temporary well shutdowns."It has been a difficult and challenging year because of the number of storms," said Erik Milito, president of trade group National Ocean Industries Association. U.S. offshore Gulf of Mexico oil production likely will end the year down by about 200,000 barrels per day (bpd) from where it started, he said.
The Marine Group’s Harbor Management Division has expanded its dredging capabilities with the recent completion of its bespoke built water injection dredger CMS Seaka. Following the deployment of CMS Innovation, The Marine Group invested in the development of a more powerful and highly efficient machine that adopts the same environmentally friendly water injection technology.The Marine Group purchased CMS Seaka as a Multicat in 2018. The vessel was then comprehensively redesigned by OSD-IMT and modified by the original builders, GRA ltd and the company's in-house team of engineers, Cardiff Diesel Services.
