30th <strong>SMM</strong> with<br />

new Highlights<br />

Today, the 30th edition of <strong>SMM</strong> is coming<br />

to its end. After three exciting days<br />

exhibitors and visitors can experience again<br />

many highlights on stages and at stands<br />

Among other things, the MS&D safety conference continues<br />

today. In view of the current global political situation, the<br />

conference topics are more important than ever. And the protection<br />

of the maritime environment will also play a role again<br />

today. For example, on the Green Transition Stages. Another immensely<br />

important topic of today‘s trade fair day is the Career<br />

Forum, which is dedicated to the next generation of maritime<br />

professionals.<br />

Since 6 September, the <strong>SMM</strong> has been the meeting place of the<br />

Who’s Who of the maritime sector. For nearly 60 years <strong>SMM</strong> has<br />

been a magnet for shipowners, suppliers, shipyards and industry<br />

visitors from all around the world. »The mere fact that <strong>SMM</strong> can<br />

take place as a live event again after the break imposed by the coronavirus<br />

is a highlight in and by itself,« says Bernd Aufderheide,<br />

President and CEO, Hamburg Messe und Congress (HMC), before<br />

the start of the 30th edition of the fair. Celebrating its 30th<br />

anniversary at the same time makes this maritime gathering even<br />

more special, he adds. After a purely digital version took place in<br />

Just like old times: all eleven halls at <strong>SMM</strong> were fully booked<br />

2021, around 2,000 exhibitors presented themselves at the fair.<br />

And Hamburg’s expo chief estimates the number of visitors at<br />

40,000 from over 100 nations. All eleven halls were fully booked.<br />

All this is quite remarkable considering the humble beginnings<br />

of the industry fair: No more than 35 exhibitors set up their<br />

stands for the original »Schiff und Maschine«<br />

(Ship and Machinery) expo in<br />

Hamburg’s exhibition halls in 1963. By<br />

1968 that number had risen to 212. As<br />

more and more exhibitors joined, the title<br />

of the event grew longer, as well: »Ship<br />

and machinery« was augmented by<br />

»Meerestechnik«, or maritime technology.<br />

Until this day the Shipbuilding,<br />

Machinery and Maritime Technology<br />

trade fair has enjoyed sustained international<br />

success under its acronym,<br />

<strong>SMM</strong>. »I am sure the members of the<br />

Hamburg Association of Ship Engineers<br />

(Vereinigung der Schiffs-Ingenieure zu<br />

Hamburg) who founded the precursor to<br />

<strong>SMM</strong> would be proud of us. What was<br />

once a predominantly German event<br />

with some 200 exhibitors in 1968 is today<br />

a leading flagship fair with an international<br />

reach,« says Aufderheide.<br />

Focus today<br />

This year <strong>SMM</strong> more than ever focuses on<br />

the maritime energy transition, the digital<br />

transformation and climate change. »We<br />

have consciously reduced some of the exhibition<br />

areas in favour of the Transition<br />

Stages to give participants more room to<br />

present their ideas and product novelties<br />

in an open forum,« explains Claus-Ulrich<br />

Selbach, Business Unit Director at HMC.<br />

There were three stages in total, each<br />

dedicated to a particular theme, like<br />

»Green«, »Digital« and »Cruise & Ferry«.<br />

Following each day’s programme of<br />

lectures and presentations, the new networking<br />

format »Wine o’ clock« provided<br />

additional opportunities to get answers<br />

and establish new business contacts. <br />

Everyone must<br />

work together<br />

Germany is still one of the largest<br />

shipowning nations in the world<br />

and a competitive shipping location from<br />

which, among other things, the second<br />

largest container ship fleet in the world is<br />

managed. The German merchant fleet<br />

comprises almost 1,900 ships and is the<br />

carrier of world trade and an essential<br />

medium for the strong German export of<br />

goods. More than ten years of the crisis<br />

lie behind shipping, especially in Germany.<br />

It is, therefore, more than gratifying<br />

that stability has finally returned to<br />

the shipping markets in the past two<br />

years. However, one or two good years<br />

will not be enough to handle the challenges<br />

ahead of us. Long-term stability is<br />

essential because the challenges and the<br />

resulting need for investment in shipping<br />

remain diverse in every respect.<br />

First and foremost, the war in Ukraine,<br />

which the VDR condemns in the strongest<br />

possible terms, should be mentioned<br />

here. Whenever the war ends, the shipping<br />

markets will have changed for a long<br />

time. Today about 40 % of the world‘s<br />

merchant fleet transports energy. It is certain<br />

that because of the war, trade routes<br />

will shift in the long term, especially<br />

when it comes to transporting energy by<br />

sea. A lot of the global energy policy and<br />

energy markets are being reorganised,<br />

and the VDR assumes that shipping will<br />

play an even more critical role in energy<br />

transport in the future.<br />

But also, the COVID-pandemic continues<br />

to challenge maritime shipping –<br />

the pandemic situation still has a significant<br />

disruptive influence on logistical<br />

processes in important shipping<br />

centres around the world. The spring<br />

lockdown in the world‘s largest port of<br />

Shanghai, where almost 200 ships were<br />

waiting in the queue for a berth for up<br />

to a week at peak times, showed the<br />

world how vulnerable the maritime<br />

supply chains are. There is still a lot of<br />

work ahead of us in the shipping community<br />

to handle such lockdown situations.<br />

And finally, climate protection: Converting<br />

the entire world merchant fleet to<br />

climate-neutral propulsion technology is<br />

an enormous feat and probably the greatest<br />

challenge for shipping at the moment.<br />

In the fall of 2021, world shipping sent a<br />

clear signal that it wants to operate climate-neutral<br />

globally in 2050 – the »how«<br />

must now be clarified in a joint effort with<br />

politics, the mineral oil industry, engine<br />

manufacturers and research. Everyone<br />

must work together because neither<br />

emissions nor climate protection stops at<br />

borders. To achieve our self-imposed goal,<br />

we need a fuel revolution. Can we manage<br />

this joint effort? Yes, of course, if we only<br />

want to. With this in mind, we look forward<br />

to discussing how we can master all<br />

these challenges together and wish everyone<br />

an interesting <strong>SMM</strong> 2022!<br />

»Ship of the year« named at <strong>SMM</strong><br />

Ship of the Year 2022 goes to a vessel that not only offers many technical innovations<br />

»but also has great transfer value to other vessels in this group, as well as in the maritime<br />

sector in general«, the jury explained the decision to give the award to e-ferry »Medstraum«<br />

Ship of the Year 2022 is the Norwegian<br />

electric passenger ferry »Medstraum«.<br />

It is the world’s first zero-emission, electrically<br />

powered high-speed ferry in regular<br />

service. For four years, a European consortium<br />

in the TrAM research project worked<br />

on revolutionary methods to develop electric<br />

passenger ferries faster and more costeffectively<br />

in the future – and to make our<br />

mobility more sustainable. The approaches,<br />

which involved the Fraunhofer<br />

Institutes for Mechatronics Design Technology<br />

IEM and the Fraunhofer Institute<br />

for Industrial Engineering IAO, are expected<br />

to save 70 % development time and<br />

25 % manufacturing costs for future ferry<br />

projects.<br />

Corvus Energy recommended the Corvus<br />

Dolphin Power ESS from its portfolio<br />

of ESSs for this fast ferry application—a<br />

147-passenger catamaran operating<br />

around the clock with crossings lasting<br />

between 35 and 40 min. The Corvus Dolphin<br />

ESS on board MS Medstraum has<br />

battery capacity of 1524 kWh and shore<br />

charging power of 2.3 MW. The lightweight<br />

Corvus Dolphin Power ESS, combined<br />

with the ferry’s other innovative<br />

lightweight and streamlined design features,<br />

enable the fast ferry to travel at<br />

high speeds energy-efficiently. »Fast ferries<br />

require a lot of energy, so we needed<br />

to make ›Medstraum‹ lighter and a lot<br />

23 knots and a total of 150 passengers: The »Medstraum« goes into regular service<br />

more efficient than traditional fast ferries.<br />

It is revolutionary that a vessel of this<br />

size can operate at 23 knots for an entire<br />

hour by electricity alone,« says Edmund<br />

Tolo, Head of R&D at Fjellstrand, the<br />

shipyard that built the vessel.<br />

»Medstraum« is the first vessel resulting<br />

from the TrAM (Transport: Advanced<br />

and Modular) project, funded by<br />

the European Union’s EU Horizon 2020<br />

program and the Rogaland County<br />

Council, and facilitated by the Norwegian<br />

cluster Maritime CleanTech.<br />

»Medstraum« recently went in operation<br />

on the commuter route between<br />

Stavanger and Hommersåk on the west<br />

coast of Norway. »Even though operating<br />

on our least energy-demanding route,<br />

›Medstraum‹ will cut our emissions by<br />

1,500 t a year,« said Mikal Dahle, Project<br />

Manager at Kolumbus, which operates<br />

ten conventional fast ferries.<br />

It is estimated that if the technology<br />

from this year‘s winner is transferred to<br />

all similar vessels in Norway, emissions<br />

will be reduced by 500,000 t/year. <br />

LOI signed for world’s first zero emission cruise vessel<br />

The ships are to be equipped with environmentally friendly technologies, including hydrogen fuel cells and renewable auxiliary power<br />

© Northern Xplorer<br />

Rolf Sandvik, CEO of Northern Xplorer – well known as the<br />

dynamo behind The Fjords’ award-winning battery-powered<br />

sightseeing vessels »Vision of The Fjord« and »Future of The<br />

Fjord« signed an LOI (Letter of Intent) with Portugal’s West<br />

Sea Shipyard during <strong>SMM</strong> for the projecting and construction<br />

of the world’s first zero-emission cruise ship. The<br />

signing took place on Thursday 8th September at the ABB<br />

stand. ABB Marine & Ports is Northern Xplorer’s technology<br />

partner for this groundbreaking project, which will involve<br />

fully electric propulsion using batteries and hydrogen fuel<br />

cells and represents a »new paradigm for sustainable operations<br />

in the cruise industry«.<br />

Norwegian company Northern Xplorer is planning a series of<br />

hydrogen- and battery-powered cruise ships that will enter service<br />

in 2024 and allow visitors to experience nature reserves. In<br />

Norway, a government regulation that will take effect in 2026<br />

will make zero-emission ship operations mandatory in the<br />

Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord World Heritage sites. »This will<br />

mean the end of polluting cruise ships sailing in the world’s first<br />

emission-free marine areas. The Northern Xplorer offers the<br />

perfect zero-emission solution with a strong focus on local<br />

value creation and empowerment,« says company founder and<br />

CEO Sandvik.<br />

A series of 14 vessels is currently planned, each accommodating<br />

up to 300 passengers in 150 cabins and served by approximately<br />

100 crew members.<br />

The ships are to be equipped with environmentally friendly<br />

technologies, including all-electric propulsion, battery storage,<br />

hydrogen fuel cells and renewable auxiliary power (wind and<br />

solar). Sophisticated HVAC systems are expected to protect<br />

against the spread of pathogens, while extensive use of recyclable<br />

materials is expected to address circularity. In addition, the ships<br />

will be equipped with advanced LADAR technology to detect<br />

plastic waste in the sea and raise awareness of marine pollution,<br />

according to plans. Multi Maritime designed the eye-catching<br />

cruise vessel, with expected delivery at the start of the 2025/2026<br />

cruise season.<br />

A&R’s trainees against plastic waste<br />

Oceans and rivers worldwide are contaminated with plastic waste. The shipyard Abeking &<br />

Rasmussen is taking action against this with the HiveX platform. A prototype is already in<br />

operation in Italy, another is being designed. Trainees play a major role in the project<br />

Trainees building the waste collection platform<br />

In the course of its 115-year history, the<br />

traditional shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen<br />

has always been willing to explore<br />

new avenues and to get involved<br />

outside its traditional fields of activity. So<br />

no one was surprised when the trainees<br />

got involved with a forward-looking project.<br />

Through a TV appearance in 2019,<br />

Toralf Zimmermann, Head of Research,<br />

Development and Innovation at A&R,<br />

became aware of the association Pacific<br />

Garbage Screening. At that time, no one<br />

© A&R<br />

could have imagined that this would develop<br />

into a long-term and trusting collaboration.<br />

The association, now renamed<br />

EverWave Community, and its<br />

associated social startup, Everwave<br />

GmbH, have declared war on plastic<br />

waste in rivers and oceans. »Every year,<br />

over 12 mill. t of plastic waste ends up in<br />

our oceans. We, the people, are responsible<br />

for this. Through our behaviors and<br />

consumption, we ingest tens of thousands<br />

of plastic particles per year, including<br />

through our food, clothing and<br />

hygiene products. This, in turn, can have<br />

an impact on our health. Our oceans are<br />

extremely polluted by almost invisible<br />

mountains of garbage. This plastic waste<br />

threatens biodiversity and the lives of all<br />

marine life. Animal food chains and habitats<br />

are being massively disrupted,«<br />

says Tilman Flöhr, CTO at Everwave.<br />

In order to protect the oceans from the<br />

masses of waste, Everwave is already<br />

starting with the rivers, the main pathways<br />

for the plastic into the oceans. For<br />

this purpose, a stationary platform system<br />

was developed that continuously collects<br />

the plastic waste in an environment-<br />

The first platform built by A&R‘s trainees is already in use near Padua<br />

ally friendly way in order to recycle it<br />

afterwards. This is where Abeking & Rasmussen<br />

came in. Toralf Zimmermann remembers:<br />

»The commitment and enthusiasm<br />

for their cause made a lasting<br />

impression on me. However, there were<br />

some challenges to be mastered in terms<br />

of shipbuilding that did not necessarily<br />

correspond to the classic tasks of our design<br />

engineers.« Solutions were quickly<br />

found. In cooperation with the Institute<br />

of Hydraulic Engineering and Water<br />

Management at RWTH Aachen University,<br />

two »primotype« test series were<br />

checked for functionality in the laboratory.<br />

These findings formed the basis for<br />

the realization of the first prototype.<br />

This prototype was built by the apprentices<br />

of Abeking & Rasmussen. The<br />

Welding work<br />

training department of A&R, which has<br />

just been awarded Top trainer by the<br />

Chamber of Industry and Commerce for<br />

the umpteenth time – approximate 10 %<br />

of the workforce are trainees and have<br />

been for many years – became the construction<br />

site. Here, the buoyancy bodies<br />

were welded and the entire platform was<br />

assembled. For Helge Ziems-Gillerke,<br />

head of the A&R training department,<br />

this project was an exceptional opportunity<br />

to make a contribution to the environment<br />

with the ship-yard‘s junior<br />

staff. »Seeing the finished platform in the<br />

Weser and experiencing that the concept<br />

works was the absolute highlight for the<br />

trainees.«<br />

The platform »HiveX«<br />

HiveX is everwave’s stationary system<br />

and can collect plastic waste continuously,<br />

in an energy-efficient and environmentally<br />

friendly way. The platform<br />

is capable of collecting up to 5 t of plastic<br />

per day and is designed to allow fish to<br />

swim through it unimpeded. Its modular<br />

system allows it to be adapted to local<br />

conditions and it can also be designed in<br />

combination with other modules.<br />

The prototype is already in use under<br />

real conditions. In Italy, near Padua, the<br />

platform is helping to reduce plastic<br />

waste discharge into the Gulf of Venice.<br />

This is far from the end of the collaboration<br />

between Abeking & Rasmussen and<br />

Everwave. A catamaran for actively collecting<br />

plastic waste is in the design<br />

phase. This, too, is to be built by the trainees.<br />

»We are very proud that we can<br />

contribute to ridding our rivers and<br />

oceans of plastic waste,« says Toralf Zimmermann.<br />

<br />

A perfect<br />

match<br />

the maximum efficiency.<br />

FH Kiel exhibits at <strong>SMM</strong> for the first time<br />

For the first time, the University of Applied<br />

Sciences (UAS) will present its maritime<br />

study and research programs at the<br />

<strong>SMM</strong>. Among the courses offered by Kiel<br />

UAS are shipbuilding and maritime engineering<br />

as well as renewable offshore<br />

energies. These and other maritime research<br />

projects will be presented by the<br />

Department of Mechanical Engineering<br />

at the trade fair.<br />

Kiel UAS will be a co-exhibitor at the<br />

stand of Wirtschaftsförderung und Technologietransfer<br />

Schleswig-Holstein<br />

GmbH (WTSH) in Hall B7, Stand 128.<br />

»Supported by the university‘s technology<br />

transfer department, the UAS Research<br />

and Development Center and university-affiliated<br />

start-ups, we will provide<br />

exciting insights into current research<br />

projects,« reports Dr.-Ing. Hendrik<br />

Dankowski, professor at the Institute<br />

of Shipbuilding and Maritime Technology.<br />

One of the projects is the research<br />

carrier »MS Wavelab«, which the UAS is<br />

helping to develop as part of the CAPTN<br />

Förde Areal project. The model used for<br />

experiments on propulsion and flow behavior<br />

will be on display as an exhibit.<br />

The CAPTN initiative (Clean Autonomous<br />

Public Transport Network) is currently<br />

working, among other things, to<br />

create an autonomous, sustainable ferry<br />

for the Kiel Fjord.<br />

In addition to the autonomous shipping<br />

research project, fair visitors will<br />

also find extensive information on other<br />

research areas and the maritime study<br />

and research opportunities at Kiel UAS.<br />

»We are the largest university of applied<br />

sciences in Schleswig-Holstein,« Dankowski<br />

emphasizes. »We are an important<br />

player in the field of innovation and<br />

technology transfer in the northernmost<br />

German state and are well networked far<br />

beyond the region. This makes us a reliable<br />

partner for industry, associations<br />

and government institutions.«<br />

The study of shipbuilding and maritime<br />

technology can look back on a tradition of<br />

almost 120 years, dating back to the »Königlich<br />

Höhere Schiffs- und Maschinenbauschule<br />

Kiel«, founded in 1903.<br />

In the meantime, three modern maritime<br />

degree programs are offered at the Department<br />

of Mechanical Engineering:<br />

Shipbuilding and Maritime Engineering<br />

as Bachelor‘s and Master‘s degree programs,<br />

as well as the Bachelor‘s degree<br />

program Renewable Offshore Energies<br />

(EOE). A total of six professors at the institute<br />

cover the entire field of shipbuilding<br />

and maritime engineering education<br />

in the best possible way with their expertise<br />

gained through many years of practice.<br />

With its laboratories including a circulating<br />

tank, wind tunnel, strength and<br />

bolting laboratory for offshore plants,<br />

Kiel UAS offers modern possibilities for<br />

applied research and practice-oriented<br />

teaching. In particular, the close linkage<br />

of sustainable energy generation on and<br />

from the sea and the use in a future climate-neutral<br />

shipping make Kiel UAS an<br />

innovative university. In the winter semester<br />

2021/22, 177 Bachelor‘s and 44<br />

Master‘s students are enrolled in the<br />

Shipbuilding and Maritime Engineering<br />

program; 63 young people are studying<br />

EOE.<br />

Interested parties will find Kiel UAS at<br />

the WTSH‘s North German joint stand in<br />

Hall B7, Stand 128. Hendrik Dankowski<br />

and his team are looking forward to discussions<br />

on the future of the maritime industry<br />

and requirements for practical<br />

university education.<br />

DESMI has a long tradition for participating in various groups<br />

and organizations for supporting the shipping industry with a<br />

greener profile and reducing the carbon footprint. Among others<br />

we have been a member of Green Ship of the Future with a<br />

number of case studies for reducing the total power consumption<br />

as much as possible though innovative technologies and great<br />

utility of the energy demand for operating the fleet without any<br />

compromises on safety and reliability of the crew, owners and environments.<br />

Currently, the company is performing several feasibility<br />

studies and installations of our fully automated OptiSave system<br />

for optimized performances of main sea and freshwater cooling<br />

Ballast water specialist Desmi has high expectationis for this year’s <strong>SMM</strong><br />

system and Engine room ventilation fan system. The savings<br />

have proven to be significant in regards to saved fuels. »However,<br />

indeed more important, the reduced emissions as a result<br />

of a more efficient operation is of a great value for the specific<br />

vessel, and the EEXI index recently being mandatory introduced<br />

for the operating fleet. A white paper of the OptiSave system<br />

is uploaded on our homepage for free downloading,«<br />

Desmi informs.<br />

Another and equally important area where Desmi are contributing,<br />

is to improve the new building designs. Currently,<br />

Desmi is part of an international working group headed by Danish<br />

Standard and the aim is to create a new ISO standard<br />

covering a greater holistic view of the equipment and system<br />

installation in the engine room for superior integration and reducing<br />

of the total carbon footprint. »As a leading manufacturer<br />

and with an extensive experience we consider these projects<br />

as our commitment to the maritime market and a sustainable<br />

shipping industry,« the company says, adding: »Being the<br />

leading company supplying pumps and associated systems to<br />

most of the scrubber manufacturers we are very dedicated to<br />

the development of pumps and pumping systems for achieving<br />

marine decarbonisation with carbon capture technologies.<br />

New material combinations will be tested during the coming<br />

Sustainable propulsion solutions for workboats<br />

MAN Engines is focusing on sustainable propulsion solutions at<br />

<strong>SMM</strong> 2022 and is presenting two ways of reducing CO2<br />

emissions for workboats. The MAN Smart Hybrid Experience<br />

enables sailing and anchoring without any emissions, and with<br />

the dual fuel engine, exhaust emissions can be noticeably reduced<br />

when operating on hydrogen. »Our goal is to support our customers<br />

with environmentally friendly drives. MAN Engines<br />

offers a wide range of solutions for this,« states Mikael Lindner,<br />

Head of MAN Engines. The MAN Smart HYBRID Experience is<br />

based on a conventional marine engine, which is connected to the<br />

permanent-magnet synchronous motor/alternator by an electromagnetic<br />

clutch. The marine gearbox is in turn flanged to this<br />

via another clutch. The electric motor generator unit from the<br />

MAN Smart HYBRID Experience can produce a rated power of<br />

184 kW or 368 kW, at an extremely high efficiency rating of up to<br />

96 %. The permanent-magnet synchronous motor/alternator is<br />

160 mm long at 184 kW, or 320 mm at 368 kW. Its diameter is<br />

560 mm. The electromagnetic clutch means that the engines do<br />

not have to be stopped to change the operating mode. This<br />

changeover can be made during operation – including as an<br />

emergency function – without interrupting the power, making<br />

operation much more convenient.<br />

»A start of a new era«<br />

Rolf Stiefel, Regional Marine Chief Executive for Central Europe at Bureau Veritas talks<br />

about the French classification society’s motto for this <strong>SMM</strong>, new technologies and his<br />

views on chances and challenges in the maritime industry<br />

»It‘s what unites us« is Bureau Veritas<br />

motto for this <strong>SMM</strong>. What does it stand<br />

for? And what is the idea behind it?<br />

Rolf Stiefel: The shipping industry is at<br />

the start of a new era, with new stakeholders,<br />

new challenges and new priorities.<br />

There is also a significant change<br />

in mindsets from a broad range of shipping<br />

stakeholders, with a greater awareness<br />

of issues connected to decarbonisation<br />

and more broadly to sustainability.<br />

It is also linked to new society-wide<br />

attitudes, calling for climate action, environmental<br />

protection, and social justice.<br />

At Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore,<br />

we share a drive to leave the maritime<br />

world in a better place than we<br />

found it. It’s what unites us, our passion<br />

for the oceans and our desire to not just<br />

protect our seas, but to shape a better<br />

maritime world for future generations.<br />

How can the maritime industry do<br />

more to protect the oceans?<br />

Stiefel: The ocean has become stakeholder<br />

in its own right. It is our role not<br />

just to protect life at sea, ships and assets,<br />

or help prevent pollution, but to<br />

also more actively preserve and protect<br />

our blue planet for future generations<br />

and to deliver ‘a better maritime world’.<br />

The shipping´s decarbonization transition<br />

will require the development and<br />

introduction of a multitude of new<br />

technologies to increase efficiency,<br />

eliminate GHG emissions and reduce<br />

further impacts on the blue planet.<br />

What do you think is the biggest challenge<br />

for maritime companies right<br />

now?<br />

Stiefel: It is hard to overstate the scale of<br />

the transformation that the shipping industry<br />

faces right now – with major<br />

shake-ups due to greater digitalisation,<br />

tighter regulation, increased scrutiny by<br />

downstream economic actors, and<br />

growing ambitions to reduce GHG<br />

emissions towards a zero-carbon industry.<br />

Any introduction of new technologies<br />

and potential alternative carbon<br />

neutral fuels needs to be safe and<br />

sound to ensure shipping can continue<br />

to play its vital role in the supply chain<br />

of the global economy.<br />

Beside the challenges around the propulsion<br />

systems for the ships of the future<br />

the digitalisation is the biggest<br />

challenge and opportunity at the same<br />

time. Data from onboard systems can<br />

be combined with data from class societies<br />

to optimise operational performance,<br />

ensure regulatory compliance,<br />

and minimise the impact on the environment<br />

to support shipping’s sustainability<br />

transition.<br />

Industry wide collaboration to ensure<br />

fast, safe and economic development<br />

and introduction of these new technologies<br />

will also be critical for us all in<br />

shipping. The related cost of a zerocarbon<br />

shipping will need to be redistributed<br />

to greater society the industry<br />

is serving. Shipping will continue to<br />

have tremendous value as it is the cheapest<br />

and most efficient form of commercial<br />

transport and will be essential<br />

for connecting future low-carbon<br />

centres of production with markets for<br />

food, goods and energy. At BV, we recognise<br />

that we are all going to be starting<br />

the decarbonisation journey from<br />

different places and move at different<br />

speeds, and we are there to support our<br />

clients wherever they are on their sustainability<br />

journey.<br />

How can you, as a classification society,<br />

support your customers and<br />

partners in overcoming these challenges?<br />

Stiefel: With our technical expertise, capabilities,<br />

and vision for ‘a better maritime<br />

world’, we are in a unique position<br />

to support the shipping industry in its<br />

transition towards sustainability. The<br />

ultimate role of a class society is to provide<br />

trust between marine stakeholders.<br />

Class has always evolved, using its ex-<br />

including wind propulsion. With customer’s<br />

demands for sustainability, there<br />

If you dare to look into the future and<br />

look ten, twenty years ahead – what do<br />

you think will be the biggest issues that<br />

will keep Bureau Veritas busy?<br />

Stiefel: In the foreseeable future the<br />

decarbonization and the introduction<br />

of new safe technologies to achieve<br />

these targets will keep us busy, there is<br />

no question about that. Another challenge<br />

for the industry will be talent.<br />

Talent will be at the heart of shipping’s<br />

transition. Experienced and welltrained<br />

crews will be essential to operate<br />

the ships of the future, which are increasingly<br />

complex technologically<br />

and will be powered by different, alternative<br />

fuels that each present their own<br />

challenges (density, toxicity). Class<br />

plays a vital role to protect the safety of<br />

seafarers and ensure they have the<br />

right training.<br />

One of the key challenges for class, as<br />

well as for shipping in general, will be<br />

to find and nurture the right people to<br />

drive this tremendous period of<br />

change. The growing focus on digitalisation<br />

will broaden the professional<br />

purview of the marine industry to include<br />

specialists on cybersecurity, AI<br />

and robotics, which will bring more diversity<br />

in the marine industry.<br />

Green shipping running in line<br />

with cost savings<br />

Patrol ship »Bamberg« with Piennig propellers<br />

© Piemimg<br />

Coming from the maintenance & service<br />

works on propeller hubs, Piening<br />

Propeller has developed a way of cost<br />

savings, combined with Green shipping.<br />

The use of biodegradable oil in Controllable<br />

Pitch Propellers can have the effect<br />

of attacking metals and resulting in a<br />

more rapid wear in between the components,<br />

which often ends in extensive<br />

welding and machining works on hub<br />

and blade carriers, as Piening has carried<br />

out for different customers on different<br />

brands of CPPs.<br />

The solution in the design of the Piening<br />

Conrollable Propeller (PCP) comes<br />

with the use of Composite components in<br />

all highly stressed bearings. Therewith<br />

the reconditioning of hubs and blade carriers<br />

is not required, you only have to replace<br />

components. You no longer need to<br />

remove the hub completely to undertake<br />

service works. And after all that is what is<br />

most important in the shipping industry:<br />

The costs for reconditioning will be decreased,<br />

which in turn lowers dock times,<br />

dock costs, downtime.<br />

Furthermore it is possible to use just<br />

water as hydraulic medium instead of<br />

oil, avoiding the risk of environmental<br />

pollution. This makes an amazing benefit<br />

for customers and the highlight is – to<br />

do something for the environment on<br />

the one hand and save money on the<br />

other.<br />

The Piening Controllable Propeller<br />

As for operational efficiency and minimal<br />

maintenance, the PCP’s blades are<br />

designed for simplified assembly and disassembly,<br />

and can be mounted from the<br />

inside or outside of the hub. Made of<br />

identical components for left- and rightturning<br />

propellers, thus reducing the<br />

number of different parts that the user<br />

has to work with and remember.<br />

PCP diameters will therefore vary in<br />

size – anywhere between 1. m and 5.4 m<br />

– and power – spanning a band of<br />

300–10.000 kW, depending on application<br />

and customer requirements.<br />

However, the »PCP – Piening Controllable<br />

Propeller« complies with stringent,<br />

global green shipping regulations.<br />

DNV approval<br />

Precisely the composite materials were<br />

tested in complex test procedures at Piening<br />

facilities on a 650 mm large PCP hub<br />

supervised by the classification society<br />

DNV. The applied loads correspond to an<br />

output of 3.300 kW by 440 revolutions<br />

per minute.<br />

After more than two million executed<br />

pitch setting cycles, which were carried<br />

out under permanent full load, DNV has<br />

confirmed an outstanding result in<br />

terms of wear resistance. Based on this<br />

How will the ship of the future run?<br />

Sustainable fuels and innovative technologies enable CO 2 -neutral or CO 2 -free propulsion<br />

concepts for ships. By: Lucie Maluck<br />

Tug propulsion solution with fuel cells and batteries<br />

© Rolls-Royce<br />

The tugboat of the future will run on<br />

batteries... or on fuel cells... or both?<br />

And the ferry with combustion engines<br />

using sustainable fuels... in combination<br />

with batteries and electric motors... or<br />

also with fuel cells? »The question of the<br />

propulsion system of the future is complex,«<br />

says Tobias Kohl, Director Application<br />

Engineering Marine at Rolls-<br />

Royce. That‘s because the possibilities are<br />

many. While until a few years ago a diesel-mechanical<br />

propulsion system was<br />

the norm and a diesel-electric propulsion<br />

system was modern, today many new<br />

combinations of different energy sources,<br />

converters and storage systems are already<br />

available or under development.<br />

The only thing that is clear is that in<br />

order to meet the International Maritime<br />

Organization‘s (IMO) target of reducing<br />

CO 2<br />

emissions from shipping by 50 percent<br />

by 2050 compared with 2018, new<br />

fuels will be needed, and with them new<br />

propulsion concepts. And these will vary<br />

depending on the application.<br />

When energy density is in<br />

demand: methanol as a fuel<br />

Internal combustion engines will continue<br />

to play an important role. In the future,<br />

however, these will often no longer<br />

be powered by fossil diesel, but increasingly<br />

by sustainable fuels such as HVO,<br />

which is already available at present, or<br />

e-methanol in the future. »We are clearly<br />

focusing on methanol as a marine fuel for<br />

the future and want to be a pioneer here,«<br />

confirms Denise Kurtulus, Vice President<br />

Global Marine at Rolls-Royce. The energy<br />

density of this fuel is high compared to<br />

other sustainable fuels, and its liquid state<br />

makes it easy to store and refuel at ambient<br />

temperatures. Even existing infrastructure<br />

can continue to be used in<br />

many cases. The methanol tanks can be<br />

flexibly arranged in the ship. In addition<br />

to reduced complexity, the more attractive<br />

investment costs are another advantage<br />

of the methanol tank system.<br />

Rolls-Royce Power Systems is initially developing<br />

methanol engines on the basis<br />

of the mtu series 4000 and will launch<br />

them on the market from 2026.<br />

CO 2 -free and extremely<br />

flexible: fuel cell systems<br />

But internal combustion engines will not<br />

be the only energy converters on large<br />

ships, as they have been in the past. Fuel<br />

cells will also be used. This is because hydrogen-powered<br />

fuel cells produce no<br />

harmful emissions whatsoever, neither<br />

CO 2<br />

nor nitrogen oxides or particulates.<br />

Fuel cells powered by green methanol<br />

emit only small amounts of CO 2<br />

due to<br />

the methanol reformer required, but no<br />

more than was previously bound in the<br />

e-methanol and are thus operated in a<br />

CO 2<br />

-neutral manner. Introducing hydrogen<br />

as a fuel for ships poses a number<br />

of challenges due to the physical properties<br />

of hydrogen, for example with regard<br />

to infrastructure, refueling and on-board<br />

bunkering.<br />

Further advantages of fuel cells are<br />

their low noise emissions and vibrations<br />

and their very high efficiency (approx. 50<br />

– 60 %). Fuel cell systems offer new, very<br />

flexible possibilities in the design of the<br />

propulsion or energy system through the<br />

introduction of an electrical energy<br />

transmission and an electrical drive of<br />

the propellers: A variable number of batteries<br />

and fuel cells is possible, flexibly<br />

expandable with combustion engine<br />

driven units. All-electric drives are also<br />

conceivable, in which the energy is<br />

stored exclusively in batteries.<br />

Rolls-Royce Power Systems is already<br />

working on the development of fuel cell<br />

systems for marine applications and will<br />

launch its own mtu fuel cell systems for<br />

main propulsion and on-board power<br />

generation from 2028.<br />

The future: hybrid systems with<br />

different components<br />

»All these individual components for<br />

propulsion, energy supply and storage –<br />

be they fuel cells, batteries or internal<br />

combustion engines powered by sustainable<br />

fuels – will enable us to develop entirely<br />

new propulsion concepts,« says Tobias<br />

Kohl. For example, combustion engines<br />

are increasingly being integrated<br />

into a hybrid system in which batteries<br />

feed electric motors and combustion engines<br />

or fuel cells supply drive energy and<br />

charge the batteries.<br />

Another trend: combining different<br />

energy systems on board a ship. Until<br />

now, the standard has been for the propulsion<br />

system to be separate from the<br />

on-board power system. But with the increasing<br />

use of electrical components on<br />

board, the two systems are merging.<br />

This means that the electricity generated<br />

by fuel cells can be used both for the<br />

hotel load on board and for the electric<br />

motors of main and auxiliary propulsion<br />

systems.<br />

Application decides<br />

on ship architecture<br />

But how will the tugboat or ferry of the future<br />

operate? Purely electric with batteries...or<br />

with fuel cells, or with combustion<br />

engines...or with a combination of<br />

everything? »It depends on the application<br />

of the vessel and the infrastructure<br />

provided,« explains Tobias Kohl.<br />

Certainly, tugs that only operate in port<br />

and thus do not have large range requirements<br />

are more likely to be able to be operated<br />

electrically than fast ferries that are<br />

underway all day on longer routes.<br />

»And it‘s also certain that they won‘t<br />

make it across the ocean with purely battery-electric<br />

drives,« Kohl said. For that,<br />

the energy storage systems would have to<br />

be huge, and there isn‘t that much space<br />

on board. Ferries in coastal areas will rely<br />

on internal combustion engines with sustainable<br />

fuels such as methanol, integrated<br />

into an electric, mechanical or even hybrid<br />

propulsion system, and later on fuel<br />

cell systems. Rolls-Royce is currently developing<br />

a complete solution architecture<br />

that can be adapted according to customer<br />

needs. The basis is mtu hybrid solutions in<br />

a modular system that can be varied according<br />

to customer requirements in<br />

terms of performance and range, for<br />

example with additional batteries. This<br />

modular system is designed in such a way<br />

that future technologies such as methanol<br />

combustion engines or fuel cells can be<br />

subsequently integrated as soon as they<br />

become available.<br />

Automation system mtu NautIQ<br />

brings together technologies<br />

All forms of propulsion have one thing in<br />

common: they are becoming much more<br />

complex than before. This also increases<br />

the importance of automation systems<br />

that can monitor both the propulsion system<br />

and the entire ship as a kind of neural<br />

system. »With mtu NautIQ, we are well<br />

positioned here and can offer our customers<br />

reliable, economical and futureproof<br />

monitoring and control solutions<br />

from the bridge to the propeller,« Tobias<br />

Kohl summarizes.<br />

He is confident that the shipping industry<br />

will be able to meet its major goal<br />

of reducing CO 2<br />

emissions by 50 percent<br />

by 2050 compared to 2018. Denise Kurtulus<br />

also confirms this: »I have received<br />

more inquiries about climate-friendly<br />

solutions in the past 12 months than in all<br />

my previous professional years combined.<br />

Manufacturers and customers are<br />

now looking specifically at ways to reduce<br />

CO 2<br />

emissions. The urgency to act<br />

is recognized. That‘s a good, hope-giving<br />

sign,« she says.<br />

and innovation cluster »e4ships«<br />

highlights application concepts, scientific<br />

findings and practical experiences.<br />

Facing the escalating climate and energy<br />

crisis, the global shipping industry<br />

must meet the massive challenge of positioning<br />

itself for the evolving technology<br />

transformation process. The focus<br />

is on developing green technologies<br />

and application concepts for various<br />

energy sources to achieve market maturity<br />

while creating safety regulations for<br />

approval and and operation of ships<br />

using innovative energy conversion systems<br />

and alternative fuels. International<br />

technical standards allowing fast, consistent<br />

certification without requiring individual<br />

prototype approvals are a prerequisite<br />

for broad, industry-wide implementation.<br />

Through its multifaceted project<br />

»e4ships – Fuel cells in maritime applications«,<br />

Germany has made substantial<br />

progress in its efforts to make shipping<br />

sustainable. Leading shipyards and ship -<br />

In the SchIBZ2 project, a fuel cell system is being tested on the vessel »Forester«<br />

owners began cooperating with fuel cell<br />

manufacturers at an early time, developing<br />

fuel cell systems for the specific<br />

needs of ocean-going and inland ships in<br />

the demonstration projects Pa-X-ell2,<br />

ELEKTRA, MultiSchIBZ and RiverCell2.<br />

The resulting technical findings were incorporated<br />

into the safety regulations for<br />

the approval of ships with on-board fuel<br />

cell systems developed recently by the international<br />

shipping organisations IMO<br />

and CESNI.<br />

In april 2022 the IMO Maritime Safety<br />

Committee approved the Interim guidelines<br />

for the safety of ships using fuel cell<br />

power installations, defining requirements<br />

for installation of these systems in<br />

commercial vessels. These guidelines<br />

establish a regulatory framework for<br />

emission-free operation of ships using efficient<br />

energy conversion systems and<br />

carbon-neutral fuels while paving the<br />

way for a successful market ramp-up of<br />

fuel cell systems.<br />

mtu engines released<br />

for sustainable fuels<br />

Rolls-Royce is setting another milestone on<br />

the road to climate-neutral shipping. Following<br />

successful bench and field tests, the<br />

Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems<br />

will gradually be approving its Series 2000<br />

and Series 4000 mtu marine engines for<br />

EN15940 synthetic diesel fuels from the beginning<br />

of 2023. These fuels include the sustainable<br />

fuels BtL (Biomass to Liquid), HVO<br />

(Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil/renewable diesel)<br />

and PtL (Power to Liquid) such as e-diesel.<br />

They can all replace conventional diesel<br />

fuel without any adjustments in these engines,<br />

says Denise Kurtulus, Vice President<br />

Global Marine.<br />

<br />


Methanol-powered fuel cell achieves milestone<br />

Freudenberg has achieved a significant<br />

milestone by receiving »Type Approval«<br />

by the classification society RINA for its<br />

methanol-powered fuel cell system. Route<br />

flexibility and ranges of more than<br />

5,000 nm are basic requirements of the<br />

world’s maritime fleet. Purely batteryelectric<br />

solutions are often out of the question<br />

for these deep-sea applications due to<br />

their high weight and space requirements.<br />

Freudenberg e-Power Systems has developed<br />

an innovative approach to using<br />

methanol for marine applications. This<br />

combines highly efficient fuel reforming<br />

technology with a long-life PEM fuel cell<br />

in a modular, scalable system unit. It generates<br />

hydrogen via steam reforming,<br />

which then reacts with oxygen from the<br />

air in the fuel cell to produce the electrical<br />

energy needed for both propulsion<br />

and the ship’s electrical system.<br />

The safety concept of this innovative<br />

system architecture has now received Type<br />

Approval from the classification society<br />

RINA. »This lays the foundations for<br />

fuel cell systems to be used on a megawatt<br />

scale on cruise ships and the international<br />

ocean fleet«, says Manfred Stefener,<br />

Managing Director of Freudenberg<br />

Fuel Cell e-Power Systems.<br />

Motor service experts launch Service Company Network<br />

Carl Baguhn Hamburg (CBH), Carl Baguhn Barranquilla (CBB),<br />

and Twinco, global experts in OEM parts sales, marine engine<br />

maintenance, and repair services, have launched the Service<br />

Company Network (SCN). Specializing in comprehensive maritime<br />

and energy engine solutions, SCN is composed of Members<br />

and Alliance Partners who work together to form a global network<br />

that extends coverage beyond participants’ existing locations.<br />

»Capitalizing on a high degree of technical expertise and<br />

industry experience, SCN provides vessel owners and operators<br />

with access to trusted global partners experienced in keeping the<br />

world’s engines running,« SCN states.<br />

SCN Members and Alliance Partners operate as separate entities<br />

and brands but maintain a collaborative connection to ensure<br />

their customers benefit from regional field service, spare<br />

part inventory, and engineering capabilities available globally.<br />

SCN is comprised of Members, CBH, CBB, and Twinco, the core<br />

network participants, who set the standards used to engage Alliance<br />

Partners. The Alliance Partners are business entities<br />

»The shipping industry could be more<br />

dynamic in its climate protection activities«<br />

Welcome to the <strong>HANSA</strong> <strong>SMM</strong> Podcast – our special podcast edition<br />

on the occasion of the world’s leading shipbuilding trade fair.<br />

Listen here for free (in German): www.hansa-online.de/smm/ or scan the QR code<br />

Boris Herrmann sees the shipping industry<br />

in a »fascinating situation«. There is<br />

»crazy amounts of potential« for climate<br />

protection and important decisions have<br />

to be made regarding new ships and propulsion<br />

systems. Herrmann shows understanding<br />

for the economic constraints<br />

with which shipowners are confronted. At<br />

the same time, the momentum for climate<br />

protection in the industry could be even<br />

stronger, he thinks. »That curious engineer’s<br />

eye and entrepreneurial spirit that we<br />

have in the yacht racing industry, where<br />

we are constantly trying to achieve the<br />

impossible, that’s what I miss a little bit in<br />

some places,« he says. Herrmann also<br />

talks about his connections in the shipping<br />

industry – for example to<br />

Kühne+Nagel and the Scheder-Bieschin<br />

family – his motivation and how he came<br />

to sailing and his commitment as a climate<br />

ambassador. He explains what merchant<br />

shipping could possibly learn from<br />

his industry and why his new racing boat<br />

»Malizia Seaexplorer« was not built in<br />

Germany but in France.<br />

Cosy pub in Hamburg-Winterhude<br />

© Meyer<br />

Alte Runde Ecke – a place where you can enjoy nice company with music from the jukebox<br />

Hamburg is big, and so is the city`s gastro<br />

scene. Anyway, since we could all certainly<br />

need a little relaxation after long<br />

trade fair days, but also don‘t want to<br />

hide from the public entirely, my tip is<br />

the »Alte Runde Ecke« (Old Round<br />

Corner) pub in the district of Winterhude.<br />

Well, how to get to it? The Alte Runde<br />

Ecke is definitely what you could call a<br />

real institution in the area close to the<br />

popular Stadtpark and the lake Alster, a<br />

pub the likes of which you rarely see anymore.<br />

It is bursting with charm and cosiness,<br />

with a lot of maritime atmosphere and<br />

even maritime »history« – the sympathetic<br />

Reiner, who runs the pub with his<br />

wonderful wife Ingrid, went to the seven<br />

seas for many years. However, an Austrian<br />

by birth, he has long since made<br />

Hamburg his home.<br />

The two of them run the Alte Runde<br />

Ecke in northern German fashion, are always<br />

friendly and have a smile on their<br />

lips – but can also make their displeasure<br />

clear in case someone doesn‘t know how<br />

to behave appropriately.<br />

During the day, it is a cosy meeting<br />

place for the people in the neighbourhood.<br />

Later on, however, it can get<br />

quite cheerful, with guests from the most<br />

diverse age groups between 18 and 80 –<br />

not seldom until the early morning<br />

hours.<br />

The original jukebox is also very popular<br />

with its traditional music selection. It<br />

has been in service for many years and is<br />

an essential part of the special ambience<br />

of the Alte Runde Ecke.<br />

Authentic Hamburg nightlife<br />

The »Katze« is famous especially for its caipirinha<br />

Want to relax after a busy trade<br />

show day and take in some authentic<br />

Hamburg nightlife atmosphere?<br />

Try out the bar »Katze« in<br />

the Schanzenviertel, close to the<br />

fairground. The Katze (Cat) is famous<br />

especially for its caipirinha<br />

long drinks that are mixed and served<br />

at an impressive speed – once you have<br />

managed to make your way to the bar.<br />

The place is always crowded. There also<br />

is a football table in the back, and opponents<br />

for a match aren’t hard to find. If<br />

you can’t find a free seat inside. Don’t<br />

worry, you won’t be the only one – and<br />

it is way cooler to enjoy your drinks<br />

outside on the street in front of the bar,<br />

like most people like to do on mild<br />

summer nights. The whole Schanze<br />

area is packed with bars and restaurants,<br />

so you can spend an entire evening<br />

there enjoying different foods and<br />

drinks.<br />
