Modern tools ease environmental retrofits and reduce risks

Author Henrik Bacher
Posted on

In the autumn of 2014 several more states have ratified the International Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention. As a result the 35% world fleet tonnage requirement for the convention to enter into force is closer than ever. Once ratified, shipowners that have delayed making BWM preparations and a decision may face a shortage of service and equipment suppliers. Making a timely decision will be key in ensuring compliance. Modern tools such as laser scanning and computational fluid dynamics can be employed to expedite and ease BWM retrofits while also reducing associated risks.

In addition to the impending ratification of the BWM Convention the requirements of the EU sulphur directive also enter into force on 1.1.2015. The sulphur directive sets, among others, requirements for the pH value of wash water from open loop scrubbers.

Remote monitoring in oil fields

Author Pekka Kaunisto
Posted on

Remote monitoring has been used in oil fields for decades already, but has nevertheless remained a hot talking point. Ideally monitoring should cover the entire oil field from the well all the way to the treatment facility. It should allow the operator to optimize production and minimize costs. The increasing remoteness of oil fields and ever stringent environmental regulations place increasing demands on monitoring systems.

Ship operability analysis – ensuring passenger safety and comfort

Author Ivan Maksic
Posted on

Passenger and crew safety are primary concerns in modern shipbuilding. In addition to continued strong cruise industry growth, shipowners pay special attention to passenger and crew comfort, enjoyment on-board and smooth operation. This places limits on ship behaviour at sea and on permissible vibration and acceleration levels in the most critical parts of the ship. Sophisticated operability studies for specific routes and navigational parameters can provide a good picture of the expected level of passenger/crew comfort in specific operational conditions.

Ship operability analysis should be performed to estimate seakeeping performance as an essential criterion for overall passenger comfort and/or crew operability in specific weather conditions.

When offering product and service solutions, many details need to be taken into consideration from customer needs and ideas to production and launch on the market. The core competence of product design and development needs to be supplemented by expertise in the strategic development of services and business operations. Motivated multi-industrial professional teams produce the best results. The will to create solutions that are sustainable and purposeful is of particular importance, while the time spent on and the risks associated with development must be minimised to create new space for new innovation. The innovative capacity of new products is what puts you ahead of your competitors.

Achieve the true value of innovative capacity

Management and leadership of creativity and innovative capacity is the responsibility of business management, but every employee can play a part. Innovation can be defined as the organisation’s ability to build new features that improve competitiveness (products, production processes, business ideas, services, etc.).
