Maritime Craft Services Expands Its Operations in Europe

Posted on Nov 22nd, 2012 with tags , , , , .
Maritime Craft Services Expands Its Operations in Europe Largs-based maritime company Maritime Craft Services (Clyde) Ltd is expanding its operations in Europe, with the purchase of three new vessels worth around £8.9 million. The three boats will be used to service MCS’s offshore energy operations in Germany and Denmark, as well as at home and are expected to create 30 new jobs and generate up to €4 million (approximately £3.2 million) turnover per year. First Minister Alex Salmond made the announcement on his return from a trade mission to Germany’s Lower Saxony province, describing it as further proof of “Scotland’s prominence in the global renewables industry”. The commission is the latest stage in MCS’s growth, which is expected to see them move next year from their base in Largs to new purpose-built premises in nearby Fairlie. The company has received support previously from Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Development International to advance their business growth and international expansion, including participation in overseas offshore wind trade events. Mr Salmond said: “These three new vessels will take Scottish expertise and know-how into the waters off Germany and Denmark, proving once again the extent of Scotland’s prominence in the global renewables industry.

“The news that MCS is investing €11 million in expanding its operations off continental Europe reflects Scotland’

OWA Christens Its New Offshore Wind Installation and Maintenance Vessels

Posted on Nov 9th, 2012 with tags , , , , , , , , .
OWA Christens Its New Offshore Wind Installation and Maintenance Vessels Amongst great public interest, the vessels ‘Aquata’ and ‘Arista’ were named at the port of Ostend. Ms Evi Van Acker, Belgian sailor and bronze medal winner at the London 2012 Olympics, accepted to be godmother to the ‘Arista’. Mrs Sabine Cartrysse, spouse of Mr Kris Vanmassenhove, accepted to be godmother to the ‘Aquata’. The christening also marked the launch of GeoSea subsidiary Offshore & Wind Assistance (OWA). Damen Shipyards of Gorinchem in the Netherlands was responsible for the detailed design, construction and delivery of the auxiliary vessels ‘Aquata’ and ‘Arista’. Measuring almost 26 m in length and 10 m in width, these so-called ‘Fast Crew Suppliers’ are equipped with a 3 ton capacity crane. The unique ‘Sea Axe’ hull shape patented by Damen Shipyards allows for high speeds even in rough waters. In addition, the ‘Aquata’ and ‘Arista’ have a very large carrying capacity in comparison to other, similar vessels, making them extremely suitable for quick transport of large quantities of goods and personnel. The first mission of the ‘Aquata’ and the ‘Arista’ will take them to the Thornton Bank off the Belgian coast, where earlier this year with the use of the DP2 jack-up vessel ‘Neptune’, parent company GeoSea installed already 30 wind turbines for the second and third stages of the C-power offshore wind farm. In the summer of 2011 OWA signed a long term contract with Repower for the support of the maintenance of all wind turbines at C-Power wind farm. For a period of 10 years OWA will be the exclusive provider of all crew transfer vessels for the regular inspections and maintenance as well as all jack up vessels which from time to time may be required for overhauls or repairs of larger components. Offshore & Wind Assistance (OWA) is looking to further strengthen its position at the forefront of companies specialising in supplying and maintaining wind farms at sea. Auxiliary vessels ‘Aquata’ and ‘Arista’ form an essential part of the strategy to realise that objective. Deployment of the ‘Aquata’ and the ‘Arista’ and the further growth of Offshore and Wind Assistance (OWA) will provide additional employment in the form of operational and technical maintenance and local employment for third parties on the coast.

WATCH: World’s Largest Wind Turbine Installation Vessel Strolls Into Tyne

By On
  The world’s largest wind turbine installation vessel, the 14,739 DWT MPI Adventure, strolled into the Port of Tyne in the UK on Thursday to pick up some wind measurement equipment to be installed off the coast Blyth near a proposed wind farm site. The MPI Adventure has been chartered by SeaRoc to complete mast installation for the National Renewable Energy Centre’s Offshore Anemometry Hub (NOAH) located approximately 3 nautical miles off the coast of Blyth.  The job includes the installation of a 635t tripod foundation, a 100t platform and 25t meteorological mast.  Once completed, the NOAH platform will collect the necessary environmental data, including wind and marine measurements, to inform the development, construction and operation of the proposed Blyth Offshore Wind Demonstration Site located nearby. Measuring 138m long by 40m wide, the MPI Adventure is designed to transport, lift and install wind turbines and their foundations using a main crane with a 1,000 ton lifting capacity and six legs that can reach 72 meters down.

Mehr Beschäftigte im Schiffbau
Hamburg

Die Werften in Deutschland beschäftigen trotz der schwierigen Lage der Branche erstmals seit vier Jahren wieder mehr Mitarbeiter. Ende August waren 16 850 Arbeitnehmer auf den Werften beschäftigt, 500 mehr als ein Jahr zuvor, ergab die regelmäßige Betriebsräte-Umfrage der IG Metall Küste in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Institut Arbeit und Wirtschaft der Universität Bremen. Dazu kommen 6500 Beschäftigte mit Werkvertrag sowie 3300 Leiharbeiter, heißt es in der gestern in Hamburg vorgestellten Studie. Das zeige einerseits, dass der Schiffbau in Deutschland eine Perspektive habe. Andererseits entscheide sich erst in der nächsten Zukunft, ob die Umstellung der Branche auf den Spezialschiffbau gelingen werde oder ob asiatische Werften die Zukunftsmärkte für sich gewinnen. Zuletzt war die Branche vor allem von zahlreichen Pleiten aufgerüttelt worden.

Nordic: Riesige Offshore-Umspannplattform auf Dock gelegt

31. August 2012 | 15:42 Uhr
Warnemünde (dpa) - Auf der Nordic-Werft in Rostock-Warnemünde ist am Freitag eine riesige Offshore-Konverterplattform SylWin alpha auf Dock gelegt worden. Wegen ihrer Größe kann sie nicht mehr im Dock selbst gefertigt werden. Deshalb wurde ins Dock ein Ponton eingeschleust, auf dem die mehr als 90 Meter hohe Konverterplattform jetzt gebaut werde, teilte Nordic am Freitag mit. Die 56 Meter breite und 82 Meter lange Plattform ragt auf beiden Seiten über die Dockkanten hinaus. Die Plattform soll rund 70 Kilometer westlich von Sylt installiert werden. Ihre Aufgabe ist es, den in den Windparks DanTysk und Butendiek gewonnenen Stroms umzuwandeln und per Seekabel als Gleichstrom an das deutsche Festland weiterzuleiten, teilte Nordic weiter mit. Auf den beiden Nordic-Werften in Wismar und Warnemünde werden zurzeit drei Umspannplattformen gebaut.Norddeutsche Rundschau

Germany: HGO’s INNOVATION Starts Operating on Global Tech I

Posted on Aug 31st, 2012 with tags , , , , , , .
HGO’s INNOVATION Starts Operating on Global Tech I In August, the construction works for the project Global Tech I have successfully started. Five test piles have already been executed at selected points close to the turbine location in the seabed. INNOVATION has even surpassed our expectations and is more powerful than planned. INNOVATION can be confidently manoeuvered and on first entering Bremerhaven it was able to pass through the Kaiserschleuse lock without active assistance by tugboats. INNOVATION does not only lay the foundation for safer and more cost-effective offshore wind farm installations but also sets new standards with outstanding characteristics.
A) Norddeutscher Schiffbau setzt auf Spezialschiffe Hamburg
Im Zuge der nachlassenden wirtschaftlichen Dynamik befindet sich die Schiffbauindustrie weltweit weiter in einem Abwärtssog. Die deutschen Werften, die sich schon seit längerem aus dem Standardschiffbau wie Containerfrachter, Bulker und Tanker zurückgezogen haben, scheinen sich dagegen in ihren Nischen stabilisieren zu können. Das geht aus dem Quartalsbericht des Verbands Schiffbau und Meerestechnik hervor, den die Organisation jetzt in Hamburg vorgelegt hat. Gleichwohl konnten die Unternehmen in den ersten drei Monaten lediglich fünf Neubauaufträge hereinnehmen: zwei RoRo-Frachter, ein Forschungsschiff sowie zwei Megayachten. Hinzu kam eine Umspannplattform für Offshore-Windparks. Mit einem RoRo-Frachter, einem Fährschiff, einer Yacht, einem Patrouillenboot und einem Fischereiforschungsschiff blieben auch die Ablieferungen relativ niedrig. Mit 8,9 Milliarden Euro , die fast ausschließlich auf Exportaufträge zurückgehen, veränderte sich der Auftragsbestand kaum. Die Hälfte des Wertes machten Kreuzfahrtschiffe aus. Das breite Typenspektrum wertet der VSM als Indiz für die weit fortgeschrittene Ausrichtung auf Spezialschiffe. Die Werften sind allerdings nicht alle gleichmäßig ausgelastet. Ohne Anschlussaufträge ist damit die Beschäftigung nicht überall gesichert. Eine – immer noch – relativ stabile Auslastung verzeichnen die Unternehmen der Zulieferindustrie. Sie spüren jetzt aber verstärkt die schwächere Nachfrage im Standardschiffbau. Ihre Belegschaften haben sie bislang weitgehend halten können.

Swire Pacific Takes Delivery of WIV Pacific Orca from SHI, South Korea

Posted on Jul 27th, 2012 with tags , , , , , .
Swire Pacific Takes Delivery of WIV Pacific Orca from SHI, South Korea Swire Pacific Offshore Operations (Pte) Limited (“SPO”), the parent company of Swire Blue Ocean A/S, today took delivery of Pacific Orca, the world’s largest windfarm installation vessel (“WIV”), from Samsung Heavy Industries (“SHI”). The vessel will be deployed to provide service for the Danish utility company DONG Energy. The vessel’s particulars include a length of 161 metres, a breadth of 49 metres and a depth of 10.4 metres. She will be the world’s largest structure for installing Wind Turbine Generators (“WTGs”), with a capacity to carry and install up to 12 units of a 3.6 MW design. Pacific Orca can install offshore wind foundations and WTGs in ocean depths of up to 60 metres, and her special design will enable the installation of the ultra-large WTGs of 10 MW or more that are currently being developed to meet the future needs of the industry. By fixing her six jack-up legs to the seabed and lifting herself up to 17 metres above the surface of the ocean, Pacific Orca can conduct offshore windfarm installation in a manner least affected by wind and waves, and with maximum accuracy and promptness. Swire Pacific Offshore’s Managing Director, Neil Glenn, said: “The delivery of Pacific Orca is an important milestone for the industry. With more than 30 years of offshore experience and a strong commitment to safety, Swire comes to the market confident that they, through Copenhagen-based Swire Blue Ocean, will deliver the high quality product, performance and service levels that offshore wind customers are looking for.” The demand for offshore windfarm installation vessels similar to Pacific Orca is expected to increase in line with rapid growth of the marine wind power market, which industry experts predict will grow from 3.55 GW in 2012 to 239 GW in 2030, prompted by the global push for renewable energy generation. Swire Pacific Offshore has another windfarm installation vessel on order with Samsung Heavy Industries. The Pacific Osprey is scheduled for delivery at the end of this year and is planned to be deployed for the Dan Tysk project. World Maritime News

Both companies are adding valuable experience to the operation of Crew Transfer Vessels, as well as diverse services to the portfolio. Moreover, with a larger pool of vessels the companies aim at improving international competitiveness and awareness.

Maritime Craft Services’ MSC Sirocco Goes Straight into Service in Belgium

Posted on Jun 25th, 2012 with tags , , , , , , , , , , .
Maritime Craft Services’ MSC Sirocco Goes Straight into Service in Belgium Scottish maritime services company has taken delivery of a new offshore wind farm support vessel, further demonstrating its intent to be a major player in the burgeoning worldwide renewables sector And today Maritime Craft Services’ MSC Sirocco goes straight into service, working on the Thornton Bank Offshore Wind Project in Belgium for international offshore contractors Tideway bv. The vessel will primarily be used to transfer personnel to and from the project’s base port in Ostend to the offshore wind platforms, along with utilising her large deck-carrying capacity by returning waste materials to Ostend. Sirocco is the latest purpose-built addition to Maritime Craft Services’ now sixteen-strong fleet. Along with its sister ship MCS Pampero, due for delivery at the end of the year, it represents a £6m investment by the flourishing Largs-based company. MCS Managing Director Dirk Kuijt said: “With the development of Round 3 offshore wind farms steadily coming on-stream, we envisage many additional opportunities for the company. We’re therefore delighted to be taking delivery of these two new vessels which both strengthen our fleet and enhance our offering to renewables customers.” MCS has been in business since 1976 and for the last ten years has operated on a number of key international offshore wind farm projects including the UK’s London Array and Sheringham Shoal, Denmark’s Horns Rev, Belgium’s Thornton Bank and Belwind, and Germany’s Bard Offshore 1. With a staff of 140 and a growing customer base in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the UK, it owns and operates a modern fleet of purpose-built offshore wind farm support vessels. Equipped with the latest technology, they are capable of safe and secure docking with offshore wind turbines during the construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance phases. Mr Kuijt explained: “In UK waters alone, there are sixteen offshore wind farms currently in operation, six under construction and a further sixteen either given consent or in planning. And with numerous other offshore projects around the world, we believe there are significant opportunities for an experienced company committed to providing the very best logistical support to contractors and project owners. “Our vessels are carefully and robustly designed to transport personnel and equipment in comfort and safety to offshore wind turbines, and in the last twelve months we have completed over 40,000 such transfers. MCS Sirocco and Pampero will allow us to significantly increase this number in the years ahead.” In addition, its other tugs and Multicats work internationally to provide support in dredging, towage, oil and gas installation, and port and harbour construction. The company are also experts in seabed levelling. MCS is now ISO 9001:2008 certified. “Achieving this standard reinforces our commitment to delivering a high-quality service with an emphasis on safety, cost-effectiveness and client satisfaction,” observed Mr Kuijt.

Exploring “Adjacent Markets”, Teekay Floats Entry In Offshore Wind Installation

By On
An illustration of a converted shuttle tanker. Image: Teekay Corporation At it’s annual Investors Day event held in New York City Monday, Teekay Corporation announced its ambitions to enter the offshore wind industry by converting some of its existing DP-equipped shuttle tankers into wind farm installation vessels. Teekay, which owns and operates the world’s largest fleet of shuttle tankers with a total of 40 vessels, says that it’s experience in adjacent offshore markets, including harsh weather environments, makes the company well suited for this growing industry. In a presentation to shareholders, Teekay stated that it’s shuttle tankers are well suited for conversion with it’s installed dynamic positioning technology and large deck space.  The presentation added that it’s vessels could potentially reduce wind farm installation costs by up to 30%, as well as extend the life of existing shuttle tankers. Here’s some video detailing a bit more about Teekay’s move into offshore wind: httpv://gcaptain.com/exploring-adjacent-markets/ Of course, whether or not Teekay will actually make the transition is yet to be realized, but it’s interesting to hear how a market leader in a number of industry segments (including mid-sized tankers, shuttle tankers, FPSOs, FSOs and LNG carriers) is exploring growth opportunities by playing to its strengths.

Denmark: World Marine Offshore Ensures Know-How for Crew Transfer

Posted on Jun 14th, 2012 with tags crew, Denmark, ensures, For, Know-How, marine, News by topic, offshore, transfer, world.

A new shipping company in the port of Esbjerg has directed a determined glance to solving the large and increasing need for transportation of personnel, spare parts and other goods for offshore wind farms. “We see that there already is a market and that there naturally is room for a shipping company which focuses 100% on the special needs of knowhow and vessels to handle the task,World Marine Offshore’s managing director, Peter Lykke Kjeldsen says. Esbjerg is a natural choice The choice of Esbjerg as a base for the company was easy to make. “Esbjerg is the Energy Metropolis of Denmark with lots of competences and companies within all branches of the energy sector,” Peter Lykke Kjeldsen explains. “It means that we are given a lot as the town and port are already known and recognised in the offshore industry.” The managing director also emphasises that Esbjerg has good conditions to provide labour force at the same time as the company’s new vessels are delivered and the activity level rises. The location in Esbjerg does not at all preclude that World Marine Offshore will bid for tasks all over the world: ”the challenges are the same and our competences can compete with anyone”, Peter Lykke Kjeldsen explains.” And the long distance to the tasks is not that important, because we will typically enter into long-term agreements with our customers.” Norwegian special vessels with exceptional capacities in rough sea World Marine Offshore has just signed the purchase agreement for a total of six specially manufactured vessels which will be delivered from March 2013. It is Crew Transfer Vessels from the Norwegian shipyard Fjellstrand. The vessels are extremely seaworthy due to a well thought out trimaran hull which combined with the latest SWATH (Small Water Plane Area Twin Hole) give stable and calm working conditions at sea and by transfers to and from the turbine – even in rough seas. The shipping company has ordered four vessels of the type Windserver 24m with room for 12 passengers and two Windserver 30m’s with room for 24 passengers. Both vessels have a large front deck meaning that they can be used for transportation of containers and for diving-/survey tasks. Some of the other advantages of the vessels are that they are equipped with four main engines, which provide very high operational reliability and at the same time good fuel economy. 40 % more working days at the wind farms Not only World Marine Offshore has discovered the qualities of the Windserver vessels. Among almost 500 types of vessels only a few have been awarded a prize by the British Carbon Trust, including Windserver. The reason is not least that the ship’s ability to work safely in high waves gives 40% more days in which it is possible to transfer personnel and goods to the offshore wind turbines.

Naturally, it is a security to know that we are not the only ones who have discovered the qualities of the new vessels. And of course we look very much forward to commissioning the vessels in about 9 months”, Peter Lykke Kjeldsen says

Der Neubau und die „Sea Installer“, die auf der Zeichnung zu sehen ist, werden nahezu baugleich sein
Das dänische Unternehmen A2SEA, Fredericia, hat nach der kurz vor der Fertigstellung stehenden „Sea Installer“ ein weiteres, nahezu baugleiches Schiff für die Installation von Offshore-Windkraftanlagen bei der chinesischen Werft Cosco Shipyard Group Co. Ltd in Auftrag gegeben.
Der 5000 t tragende Neubau wird eine Länge von 132 m, eine Breite von 39 m und einen Tiefgang von 5,8 m aufweisen. Angetrieben wird das Installationsschiff von drei je 3800 kW leistenden Voith Schneider Propellern, mit denen das Schiff eine maximale Geschwindigkeit von 12 kn erreichen soll. Im Bugbereich wird ein Voith Inline Thruster VIT 2300 - 1500 mit einer Eingangsleistung von 1500 kW installiert. Einer der wenigen Unterschiede zwischen den beiden Schiffen ist die Krankapazität. Diese liegt bei dem jetzt in Auftrag gegebenen zweiten Installationsschiff bei 900 t und damit rund 100 t über der Kapazität der „Sea Installer“. Insgesamt sollen 60 Personen auf dem Neubau Platz finden. Acht bis zehn komplette Windkraftanlagen können zeitgleich transportiert werden. Die Indienststellung ist für Mitte 2014 vorgesehen.

UK: CWind Expands Its Fleet with Three New Skippers

Posted on Jun 12th, 2012 with tags CWind, expands, fleet, New, News by topic, Skippers, three, UK.

CWind has recently signed three new skippers to its boat share scheme and placed orders for three 19m MPCs with CTruk Boats. These vessels will be built this year and will all work with CWind on charters, going straight on to contract on the UK’s east coast. CWind already has four vessels running under the boat share scheme. CWind’s innovative boat-share scheme helps skippers to become co-owners of a workboat – in partnership with CWind. The increasing interest in this scheme reflects the opportunity it offers experienced mariners, to make the step up and work for themselves in the growing offshore wind sector in close co-operation with a proven charter company. The boat-share arrangement means that CWind provides the charter contracts, whilst the experienced skipper manages the crew and focuses on delivering a high quality service to the charter client. Furthermore, CWind provides the key operational systems including the QHSE, the fleet management, and the back-up. For example; CWind makes sure that spare engines and parts are deployed along with the vessels to keep downtime to a minimum. Plus there is access to the skilled technicians from the CTruk Boats’ boatyard if necessary. The vessels available for this scheme include the 20-tonne and 50-tonne CTruk workboats with their huge, versatile payload and fuel consumption half that of a comparable aluminium vessel. With a flexible pod* system, the layout of these multi-purpose vessels can be easily adapted within hours to suit a wide range of tasks for both the construction and operations & maintenance work phases on offshore wind farms. “Our boat share scheme enables experienced mariners to participate in the ever expanding wind farm industry. The investment of the skipper means our clients get a can-do attitude combined with the proven management and QHSE procedures of CWind,” commented Peter Jorgensen, Managing Director of CWind. CWind recently welcomed the CWind Athenia into the boat-share scheme, working with skipper Dave Bachelor. A versatile 20T MPC workboat, CWind Athenia joined Dave Bachelor‘s current vessel at the London Array, where the work involves crew transfer and generator management. Dave commented “I’ve worked as an owner operator on my own and now with CWind as an owner operator on the Boat Share Scheme. The CWind scheme is definitely the way forward for me because CWind has the resources, back up, systems and client contact that I think are critical to be an effective operator”. She is operating alongside CWind Alliance – run by local skipper Andy Harman and his two very experienced sons, Ben and Joe, who are also on the CWind boat-share scheme with their vessel. Ben explained the importance of the boat-share scheme from his point of view, “As a young owner-skipper it’s been a fantastic opportunity to work in this sector. I wanted to move on from working for others. This was the ideal step up,” he said. Brian Croucher, owner-skipper of the 20T MPC Asherah with the scheme from 2011 and now working at the London Array, “The boat share scheme has been a great opportunity to be co-owner of a really great workboat. It has been fun working on the ground with the whole CWind team, on a superbly manoeuvrable vessel that can really do more than any in its class. Plus, the joint venture arrangement feels like I have the benefits of my own work. This is far more interesting than anything retirement has to offer.” Elsewhere, it’s been a scheme that for some has complemented their existing business. As Jon Brett owner-skipper of the Advance and one of the founder boat-share partners who started working with CWind in 2009 and currently operating out of Barrow-in-Furness said, “It’s been great being able to work both as an owner-skipper and to continue with my shipwright business. A clear win/ win for me and CWind, as well as fantastic to have the opportunity to work in this growing sector. It’s a great scheme that I would thoroughly recommend”. CWind has an expanding fleet of proven CTruk workboats and is interested in discussions with experienced mariners interesting in making the step up to boat-share

UK: Eight-Year-Old Girl Names Newest Alicat Workboat

Posted on Jun 11th, 2012 with tags , , , , , , , .
Eight-Year-Old Girl Names Newest Alicat Workboat For eight-year-old Cerys Jones it was the thrill of choosing the name for the newest Alicat Workboat built in Great Yarmouth – for the company it was the latest leg in a £10.5m contract to provide crew transfer vessels for the London Array windfarm. Thanks to Cerys, the new boat will be called Ellida Array and the schoolgirl and her family were guests of honour for the name unveiling and blessing at Trinity Quay, Great Yarmouth. The 18m catamaran will shortly start work off Kent, the third and final Alicat to be chartered by London Array, through Gardline, to work alongside sister vessels Marianarray and Smeaton Array on a round-the-clock 3-5 year contract. The trio of boats, two equipped with Mann engines and Rolls Royce jet units, and one with Caterpillar engines and fixed propellers are the most advanced yet to be produced by Alicat. The Ellida Array is the 11th Alicat to be built in Great Yarmouth over the past two years and another four are presently under construction. Kent schoolgirl Cerys came up with the name in a competition for youngsters. She chose it because in folklore, when the Vikings landed in Kent, Ellida was the name given to the first Viking to step ashore. It is also the name of a moth. Michael Martins, Gardline Coastal Services business manager, said he was impressed by the research Cerys put into her choice: “We had many great suggestions but Ellida Array stood out for its historical connection and the imagination of being named after a moth which also harnesses windpower.” Cerys and her family were joined by the Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Colleen Walker, and Shelby Allen, 8, representing Greenacre School, Great Yarmouth, one of 12 local primary schools in the Gardline Travelling Teddy Bear project which encourages youngsters’ interest in the wider world. All the guests enjoyed a trip on the Ellida Array to one of the Scroby Sands turbines before the girls were treated to more traditional rides at Great Yarmouth’s Joyland, courtesy of owner David Cole. “It was all great,” said Cerys, afterwards. “I never dreamed I would see the name on a real boat.” Now she will be pointing it out to all her friends and family whenever it sails in to Ramsgate. Before the sea trip, the vessel was blessed by the Rev Peter Paine, chaplain to Gardline.

Norway: Atlantic Offshore Sells Its Oldest PSV

Posted on Jun 8th, 2012 with tags , , , , , , , .
Norway - Atlantic Offshore Sells Its Oldest PSV Atlantic Offshore’s oldest PSV is now sold and delivered to new owners. The vessel will leave the offshore supply market and enter the windmill support market. It was sold slightly above book value.  Atlantic Offshore, previously known as Sartor Offshore AS was established in 2008. The company  acquired Sartor Shippings operation in Norway and Ocean Mainports operation in Aberdeen and Ireland. The company’s main office is located at the Coast Center Base, Sotra, outside Bergen, Norway, with branch office in Aberdeen, Scotland. The Group currently operates 24 vessels off Ireland, Mediterranean, Southern Atlantic and in the North Sea. Hamburg. Die deutschen Werften wollen künftig vor allem von den Trends zum Umweltschutz sowie dem Aufbau von Offshore-Windkraft-Anlagen auf See profitieren. „Das sind Themen, die dem Schiffbau neue Möglichkeiten wie etwa den Bau von Errichter- und Versorgungsschiffen für die Offshore-Projekte eröffnen“, sagte Werner Lundt, der Hauptgeschäftsführer des Verbandes für Schiffbau und Meerestechnik (VSM), in Hamburg. Aufgrund der scharfen Konkurrenz aus Asien konzentriert sich die Branche inzwischen weitgehend auf den Bau von Spezialschiffen. Die Zurückhaltung der Banken bei der Finanzierung von Neubauten hält aber an. „Wir sind noch nicht aus der Krise heraus“, sagte Lundt. Für 2012 rechnet er immerhin damit, dass sich die Lage nicht verschlechtert. Insgesamt wurden 2011 nur noch 31 Schiffe mit einer Größe von 442000 Neubautonnen (cgt) (Vorjahr: 49 Schiffe mit 975000 cgt) abgeliefert. Ihr Wert hat sich gegenüber 2010 mit zwei Milliarden Euro mehr als halbiert. Weil aber 28 neue Aufträge für rund drei Milliarden Euro hereingenommen werden konnten, erhöhte sich der Auftragsbestand von 7,4 auf 8,4 Milliarden Euro. Rein rechnerisch ist die Branche damit für zwei Jahre ausgelastet. „Die Situation der Werften ist aber unterschiedlich. Manche haben deutlich länger Arbeit für ihre Belegschaften, andere müssen rasch neue Aufträge hereinholen“, sagte Lundt. Fast 90 Prozent der in Deutschland bestellten Neubauten sind Passagierschiffe, Yachten und andere Spezialschiffe wie etwa für die Offshore-Windindustrie. Mehr als 90 Prozent der Aufträge kommen aus dem Ausland. Für die Werften, die sich auf Reparaturen und Umbauten spezialisiert haben, sieht Lundt nun neue Chancen durch den Einbau von Schwefelfiltern für Schiffe, die auf Nord- und Ostsee unterwegs sind. Sie sollen den Ausstoß der Schwefelgase auf ein Niveau verringern, das dem Einsatz von Treibstoff mit 0,1 Prozent statt derzeit 1,5 Prozent Schwefel entspricht. Den neuen Wert, der ab 2015 gilt, hat die Internationale Schifffahrtsorganisation IMO im Jahr 2008 festgelegt. „Darin wird sich nichts ändern“, sagte Lundt. Daher werde es jetzt Zeit, die Schiffe umzurüsten. Bisher aber zögerten viele Reeder, weil sie vor dem Hintergrund der schwierigen wirtschaftlichen Lage Investitionen scheuten. „Wenn aber alle auf den letzten Drücker reagieren, könnte es eng werden“, sagte der VSM-Hauptgeschäftsführer. Er rechnet für den Einbau der Anlagen mit einer Werftzeit von zwei bis drei Wochen. Der Preis dürfte je nach Schiffstyp zwischen einer und fünf Millionen Euro liegen. „Technische Lösungen bei den Filtern gibt es“, sagte Lundt. „Sie werden seit ein bis zwei Jahren auch für die Seefahrt angeboten.“  

UK: Naming Ceremony for Alicat Workboats’ New Transfer Vessel

Posted on May 31st, 2012 with tags , , , , , , , , .
Naming Ceremony for Alicat Workboats' New Transfer Vessel On Wednesday 30th May Alicat Workboats held a naming ceremony for the third London Array Crew transfer vessel. A competition was run to name the vessel and this was won by an eight-year-old Thanet schoolgirl , as part of her prize she won a VIP family break and £500 for her school. Cerys Jones, who attends St Peter in Thanet CoE Junior School, chose the name ‘Ellida Array’ for the 17m aluminium catamaran, or Alicat, which is due to enter service in early June. The vessel will operate from Ramsgate alongside two other similar vessels – the Marian Array and the Smeaton Array. Her prize included an overnight trip for herself, her parents and five-year-old sister Lilia and she took part in the formal naming of the boat in Great Yarmouth where it was built. The Mayor, director of Alicat – Nigel Darling and a pupil from neighbouring Greenacre School was also present. All three boats will be operated by wind farm specialist Gardline, which teamed up with London Array to offer local youngsters the chance to name the third and final vessel. The winning name was chosen by a panel from London Array and Gardline, with final approval given by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. Cerys said she chose the name Ellida Array because the Vikings landed in Thanet, and, in Viking folklore Ellida is the name of the boat given to the first Viking. Ellida is also the name of a moth, which takes advantage of the wind when flying. After their stay at the Imperial Hotel in Great Yarmouth, Cerys and her family were given a tour of the Alicat shipyard before taking part in the naming and blessing ceremony. This included presentations and speeches. She then went onboard onboard the new workboat for a trip around the coastline before returning back to the quay for lunch. Following this, Cerys and her family and a pupil from Greenacre school were taken to Joyland, a local fun park for some rides and an ice cream.  Michael Martins, Business Manager at Gardline, said: “We were delighted to welcome Cerys and her family to take part in the naming of the Ellida Array and to see the yard where this state-of-the-art vessel was built. It was a great day and she thoroughly deserved her prize.” The Ellida Array will work 24 hours a day for London Array on a three year contract. When complete, London Array will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world. Work on Phase One is underway and includes installing 175 turbines and two offshore substations.
