There is war in Europe: A sad reality for several months now.

Military conflicts not only take place on land and in the air

but increasingly on the water, as well – with far-reaching consequences:

»This war is another heavy blow to the global economy,

and that includes international shipping, logistics chains

and ports,« says Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO of Hamburg

Messe und Congress. At MS&D, the International Conference

on Maritime Security and Defence held in conjunction

with SMM, the discussion will focus on questions of defence policy

and equipment for naval forces.

Thursday | 08-09-2022



As the current international situation shows,

global free trade is increasingly exposed to

risks. The protection of sea routes for international

commercial shipping is the subject

of the keynote presented by Martin

Kröger, Managing Director of the German

Shipowners Association (VDR).

General (retd.) Egon Ramms, former

Commander of the Allied Joint Force

Command and one of the highest-ranking

German officers in NATO, will outline

the lessons to be learned from the Ukraine

war. Around the world many nations are responding

to new security situations by increasing

their defence expenditures.

Arms buildup in the Far East

One of the panels will address maritime security in the Indo

Pacific region where maintaining low-friction relations between

nations is considered as a major challenge. The Chinese government

is continuously increasing its military spending at rates exceeding

the country’s economic growth.

On the water, the People‘s Republic is already in the lead: »Between

2014 and 2018, China added naval ships equivalent to the

total tonnage of the UK’s Royal Navy or the entire Japanese naval

fleet to its already considerable navy,« says

Sarah Kirchberger, Head of the Department

for Strategic Development in Asia-Pacific at

the Institute for Security Policy at Kiel

University. »This naval armament policy

is practically unequalled in history.« In

her speech, Kirchberger will explore the

objectives and potential of the Chinese

navy. China’s massive military investments

are giving rise to worries among

neighbouring countries, prompting them

to strengthen their ties among each other.

For example, Australia and Japan agreed a security

cooperation as early as 2007. The German

navy‘s ability to cooperate with East Asian

navies on securing key shipping routes was

demonstrated recently when the frigate

»Bayern« participated in a large manoeuvre of

the Japanese navy. Deep Sea Captain Rtd. Joachim Gutow will explain

how the German navy is re-establishing itself as a partner in

the Far East. Apart from scientists and industry experts, a

number of high-ranking naval officers will provide insights during

the conference – about the security situation in the eastern

Mediterranean or in the Baltic Sea.

Advanced technologies

As adviser to the Institute for Security Policy at Kiel University,

Patrick O’Keeffe is well familiar with security situations around

the world. A trained aerospace engineer, he will focus his presentation

on cyber security during naval operations. High-tech applications

are in the spotlight at thyssenkrupp Marine Systems

(tkMS), as well. Specialised on naval shipbuilding, the company is

currently dealing with an »explosive inheritance« from World

War II. In German territorial waters alone, there are approximately

1.6 mill. t left. tkms’ General Manager Knut Baumann

will present a partially autonomous recovery system used to

defuse these ticking timebombs.

Green fuels which may be suitable for naval vessels are the

topic of the presentation by Andreas Junginger from MAN Energy

Solutions, connecting the military with the civilian maritime

world and the key topic of SMM: The Maritime Transition to

emission-free shipping.

»There has to be a market for

synthetic fuels to get ahead«

Welcome to the HANSA SMM Podcast, our special podcast edition

on the occasion of the world’s leading shipbuilding trade fair.

Listen here for free: https://hansa-online.de/smm/ or scan the QR code

This time the maritime energy transition is one of the most important topics of the SMM maritime

trade show taking place in Hamburg from 6 to 9 September. »In 2018 it was more of a

niche topic, but today it is THE topic. I guess we will see some innovations regarding the engine

itself. Whether it is about new fuels like methanol or ammonia as well as other innovation which

allow the maritime business to decarbonize in the future,« Peter Müller-Baum, Secretary General

of the International Council on Combustion Engines (CIMAC), says on the HANSA SMM Podcast.

It is CIMAC’s position that the internal combustion engine will play the most important role

for deep sea shipping in the future. »However, you can combine it with electrification, fuel cells or

other means to improve the complete system, but actually the kind of fuels, how they will be produced

in the future and how the shipping industry may benefit from that, are the most important

questions for CIMAC,« Müller-Baum says. »To get that market ramp up started, we need the regulator.

We need actions from the IMO or other actors like the EU.«

VDMA Marine Equipment and Systems

A particularly

great responsibility

We are pleased and proud to be

present again as VDMA at SMM

2022. We are very excited about the discussions

and exchanges with you, the

visitors and exhibitors at the world‘s

leading maritime trade fair. We are

convinced that the planned and especially

the unplanned trade fair contacts

will increase the speed of innovation


Despite or precisely because of the

many crises and imponderables, it is

necessary to advance the maritime

economy and its logistics, because it is

a prerequisite for increasing prosperity

worldwide. The global economy will

falter without the smooth exchange of

capital goods and commodities.

The shipbuilding and offshore supply

industries have a particularly great responsibility

in this regard. Through the

maritime energy transition (electric,

hybrid, PowerToX), new digital standards

(MTP, UMATI) and intelligent

route planning, we are on the way to a

climate-neutral and fast transport

chain at sea. The shipbuilding and offshore

supply industry companies ensure

the unrestricted technical availability

of the transport units. Their

know-how in construction, lifetime

service and digital data acquisition,

evaluation and implementation are the

guarantors of this.

The necessary interfaces to energy

generation are also provided by maritime

mechanical engineering. The construction

and operation of increasingly

powerful offshore wind turbines and

energy conversion into PowerToX are

welcome challenges for the industry. It

is not without reason that the leading

international trade fairs SMM 2022 and

WindEnergy 2022 are close together.

With more than 63,000 employees and

over €10 billion in turnover, the German

maritime supply industry continues to

lead the world. Its success factors are

customer proximity, permanent innovations,

speed, reliability and quality.

At SMM 2022, the VDMA will also

promote the industry‘s most important

technology topics. Digital solutions

will be presented and discussed at the

Maritime Future Summit, the Green

Transition Stage and the Digital Transition


The same applies to the VDMA

stands in Hall A1 Stand 520 and Hall

A3 Stand 314, where we want to talk to

you in person about the challenges and

solutions facing the shipbuilding and

offshore supply industry.

We look forward to your visit!

drink in a cosy atmosphere between ship

models and historic exhibits. The numerous

guests were welcomed by Peter Tamm,

Managing Director of Tamm Media, the

publishing house that publishes HANSA,

and Florian Visser, HANSA’s Commercial

Publishing Director. »It is a great honour to

welcome so many friends, partners, clients,

readers, subscribers and advertisers here

this evening,« Peter Tamm said. »It is more

important than ever to have solid and reliable

trade information,« he said, stressing

the need for good co-operation even in difficult

times as during the pandemic. The

HANSA reception was the chance for

everybody to celebrate the back-to-normal

situation for the maritime industry meeting

again at SMM.

More watts with fewer emissions

At the Offshore Dialogue, which takes place today during SMM, experts will explore

options for sustainable use of the oceans. In two panels they discuss about »Mitigation and

Adaption to Climate Change« as well as »Offshore Energy Technologies for Today«

© Hero Lang

Ambitious expansion of wind power on land and at sea is said to be a »prerequisite for the production of alternative ship fuels«

Rising sea levels, shrinking biodiversity,

higher water temperatures: The

oceans are suffering from climate change.

Humanity must change its course rapidly.

Many hopes are pinned on electricity generation

on the water, which could propel

the maritime energy transition, as well.

Renewable energy sources are at the top

of the agenda: By 2045 the Federal Government

wants to increase the German

offshore wind capacity nearly tenfold.

The country’s wind farms are expected to

have a combined capacity of 70 gigawatts

(GW) by that time. The European Commission

is planning to increase the EUwide

capacity to as much as 340 GW by

2050. Building all these wind turbines is a

technical, logistical and financial challenge

of huge proportions – and it is a

very urgent project, not only to achieve

independence from Russian natural gas

but also to cut emissions radically.

The shipping industry will likewise be

highly dependent on powerful wind turbines

as it strives to become carbon-neutral:

»Ambitious expansion of wind

power on land and at sea is a prerequisite

for the production of alternative ship

fuels,« says Claus Ulrich Selbach, Business

Unit Director – Maritime and Technology

Fairs & Exhibitions at Hamburg

Messe und Congress. »Whether methanol

or ammonia, synthetic fuels won’t be

truly sustainable unless they are based on

green hydrogen produced with renewable


All this entails an enormous challenge:

Offshore wind farms are to be built at distances

of 30 to 40 km from the shore, an-

chored in the seafloor at depths of up to

40 m. Can this be realised without damaging

vulnerable marine ecosystems?

This is one of the questions to be discussed

by a top-flight expert panel at the

Offshore Dialogue (OD).

The power of data

The oceans are a threatened biosphere.

The »Ocean Decade« initiative is the

United Nations’ response aiming to implement

international solutions for the

protection and sustainable use of oceans

by the year 2030. »Oceans are of enormous

importance for us here on earth because

they regulate the climate and limit

global heating caused by human greenhouse

gas emissions. The effects of climate

change on oceans and coastal regions

are massive, and we must take action

urgently to improve the situation in

the oceans,« says Steffen Knodt, Member

of the Board of the German Ocean Decade

Committee (ODK). At the Offshore

Dialogue, Knodt will provide an overview

of the committee‘s national and international


Safe and fast

Findings from regions which have been

hit by climate change especially hard are

of particular importance to climate research.

For example, the Arctic is heating

three times faster than the world average.

To obtain concrete data on this, scientists

must use specialised ships which have to

fight their way through thick sea ice.

Lasse Rabenstein and his start-up Drift +

Noise help expedition teams do so successfully.

At the OD, the company’s cofounder

will present the ice information

app »IcySea«. »We provide high-resolution

satellite images of the polar regions

to our customers around the clock. They

can be received with minimum bandwidth.

In addition, our range of services

includes a forecasting system for the optimum

route through the ice,« says Rabenstein

who has a PhD in geophysics and

more than 15 years of experience operating

in polar regions. For example, his

app has supported the crew of the AWI

research vessel Polarstern. »Thanks to the

satellite images we were able to identify

open water channels in the ice cover and

shorten a trip that normally takes four

days to only two.« This translated to substantial

financial savings, considering the

vessel‘s daily operating costs of 70,000

euros – a result that should be of interest

to commercial shipping companies, as

well. At the Offshore Dialogue, Rabenstein

will speak about the increasing

number of ice-free days in Arctic waters

which will allow more ships to sail

through the Northwest passage in future.

Energy from the sea

From fishing vessels to scientific research,

merchant and cruise ships, there

is plenty of traffic in coastal waters. Offshore

wind farms increasingly crowd

these areas. One of the world‘s biggest operators

with offshore wind farms totalling

2.4 GW in installed power is the German

energy company RWE. »We would like to

invest much more rapidly,« notes RWE

CEO Markus Krebber. But, he adds, requests

for government support are taking

too much time to process. Contrary to

the Netherlands, Germany has no clear

goal for its hydrogen industry, he says. Dr

Bernadette Zipfel, Team Lead Engineering

Management Future Technologies,

will explain how the company envisions

the future of energy generation.

Having done extensive research on the

subject, Martin Kaltschmitt from Technical

University Hamburg (TUHH) gives

his assessment: »Offshore wind power is

steadily gaining in importance. The same

will apply to offshore hydrogen production

in the medium term, which will help transport

the electrical energy generated far offshore

as efficiently as possible so it can be

made available on land.« At the Offshore

Dialogue, he will discuss what he believes

to be the most promising approaches.

One major topic is how all this energy

could be stored. In his presentation

Walter Kuehnlein, Consultant and

Founder of the start-up terra.blue, will

highlight several options. Together with

the Chairman of the Board of the Society

for Maritime Technology (Gesellschaft

für Maritime Technik, GMT), Sören

Ehlers,Kuehnlein will be moderating this

year‘s Offshore Dialogue.

»I am looking forward to welcoming so

many smart thinkers to the conference.

For the first time, we will put a strong

focus on hydrogen at this SMM. Through

this event, the subsequent WindEnergy

Hamburg and the H2 EXPO & CONFER-

ENCE, we want to establish Hamburg as

the capital of the international hydrogen

economy,« says Claus Ulrich Selbach.

The two events will take place from 27 to

30 September 2022.

Cooperation to minimize the risk of container incidents

Navis, the provider of maritime software

solutions for efficient and compliant

cargo loading, and the Norwegian-

German classification society DNV announced

today that they are going to cooperate

on combining their respective

solutions for minimizing the risk of container

incidents at sea.

»Container losses are rare, but the impact

of those losses can be very significant

– both in financial and reputational

terms,« said Arne Schulz-Heimbeck,

Senior Principal Engineer and Programme

Development Manager for Containerships

at DNV Maritime. »Synchronous

and parametric rolling can increase

the risk of container loss, and the

combination of factors that lead to this

type of rolling can be very hard to predict.

The combination of the DNV Anti-

Roll Assist and the Navis Lashing Monitor

gives captains and crews a clear and

simple picture of the risk and supports

them in assessing if a navigational adjustment

is needed.«

»Navis is very pleased to be able to provide

additional layers of information into

operational guidance,« said Carlos Barbera,

VP Product at Navis. »Crews are

balancing maximum loading capacity,

time pressure, and profitability, while

having to deliver optimum vessel safe

seakeeping behavior in changing weather

Container losses are rare, but the impact of those losses can be very significant

situations. By integrating the Anti-Roll

Assist calculations into the Navis Lashing

Monitor tool we are enabling our customers

to take the design values and at

the same time actual cargo and cargo securing

data of their vessels into account.«

DNV’s anti-roll software and services

are supported by a new DNV class notation

called ARCS (Anti-Roll for Containerships)

which enables shipowners to

demonstrate to their customers that a

strategy to minimize the risk of container

loss is in place. The Navis’ Lashing Monitor,

monitors real-time vessel motion

data and lashing forces. The system interfaces

with the Navis loading computer.

New data-enabled service agreement for medium-speed engine turbochargers

Accelleron, the new face of ABB Turbocharging, have launched a

new data-enabled service agreement with an accompanying customer

portal that uses the power of analytics to optimize turbocharger

maintenance, advise on turbocharger health and enhance

OPEX. Turbo SmartCare provides more flexible maintenance by

putting intelligent, remote insights provided by Accelleron’s expert

engineers into the hands of the ship operator.

By introducing Turbo SmartCare to the medium-speed fourstroke

engine market, Accelleron aims to transform turbocharger

maintenance at a time when fuel consumption and emissions

generated by the global shipping fleet is under increasing scrutiny.

Turbochargers are described as playing a key role in the decarbonization

of shipping operations not only by helping to decrease

fuel consumption but also through their health being critical

to optimal engine performance.

Turbo SmartCare moves away from standard time-led service

agreements which are defined by fixed inspection milestones, irrespective

of the actual condition or health of the turbocharger,

towards a data-driven analysis that will have a positive impact on

excess emissions and reduce unnecessary expenditure on turbocharger


Via the intuitive customer portal Loreka, users have 24/7 access

to easy-to-interpret fleet-wide turbocharger health indicators

using a traffic light status and accompanying advisories provided

by Accelleron experts. As part of the new offering, Accelleron

provides guaranteed coverage for the entire duration of the service

agreement, which is based on a fixed price per running hour

and covers scheduled and unscheduled maintenance with protection

against unexpected events and wear on the turbochargers.

This gives Turbo SmartCare customers full financial predictability

enabling them to accurately plan ahead with no unexpected


Thorsten Bosse, Head of Global Service Product Management

at Accelleron, said, »Turbocharger data is carefully analyzed by

our experts, who provide deeper insights and advisories by combining

analytics with our long history of engineering design experience.

As experts in the field of turbocharging, we provide

Turbo SmartCare customers with insightful advice, for example

on how to fine-tune Time Between Overhauls (TBO) to allow

alignment of the engine overhaul with that of the turbocharger.

This type of agreement represents a fundamental change in how

we do turbocharger servicing in our industry.«

New Dual-Fuel Engine

MAN Energy Solutions has announced the launch of its 49/60DF

engine type at the SMM trade fair in Hamburg. The latest addition

to its four-stroke engine portfolio, the dual-fuel engine is

capable of running on LNG, diesel and HFO as well as a number

of more sustainable fuels including biofuel blends and synthetic

natural gas. MAN Energy Solutions states that it »sets a benchmark

in terms of fuel efficiency within four-stroke engines – both

in gas and diesel modes – and therefore minimises fuel costs«.

Wayne Jones OBE, Member of the Executive Board – Global

Sales & After Sales – said: »Dual-fuel engines are the ticket to the

maritime energy transition. As we enter a new era of decarbonisation,

the 49/60DF is a great, new choice for vessel owners that

have ambitious, emission-reduction targets on their agenda.«

The 49/60DF is available for order and is based on the new

49/60 engine platform that features MAN’s latest technologies,

including two-stage turbocharging, second-generation commonrail

fuel injection, SaCoS5000 automation system and MAN’s

next generation Adaptive Combustion Control ACC 2.0.

MAN Energy Solutions plans to introduce a pure diesel engine

based on the 49/60 platform in 2023 »that will inherently be

retrofit-ready for running on methanol and LNG should the demand

arise at a later stage.«


New medium-speed 4-stroke engine

The technology group Wärtsilä has launched its new Wärtsilä 25

medium-speed 4-stroke engine. The engine is already capable of

operating on diesel, LNG, or on either gas or liquid carbon-neutral

biofuels, »and can easily be upgraded to operate with future

carbon-free fuels as they become available«, the Finnish company

said. The Wärtsilä 25 is intended to be the first Wärtsilä engine to

run on Ammonia as a fuel – technology development is »currently

underway with a technology concept readiness slated for

2023, followed by planned product release soon thereafter.«

When operating with natural gas the engine is IMO Tier III

compliant, as it also is with diesel when integrated with a Wärtsilä

NOx Reducer (NOR) emissions abatement system. Furthermore,

it enables economically viable compliance with regulations such

as the IMO’s CII and EEXI protocols that enter into force in 2023.

The new product features a turbocharging system with a high

pressure ratio. It is now available in 6L, 7L, 8L and 9L cylinder

configurations, while the dual-fuel (DF) version has a power

output ranging from 1.9 to 3.1 MW, and the diesel version from

2.0 to 3.4 MW. »The common-rail high pressure fuel injection

technology optimises combustion and the fuel-injection settings

at all loads. This in turn promotes smoke-free operation«,

Wärtsilä added.

DNV launches NAUTConnect

At the SMM trade fair in Hamburg, classification society announced

the launch of its new NAUTConnect service. Offered as

an additional voluntary class notation and developed in collaboration

with the industry, NAUTConnect is hosted on DNV’s Veracity

platform and is designed to enable the optimal performance

and safety of navigational systems.

NAUTConnect is a continuous remote compliance verification

system for electronic navigational systems and integrated network

equipment. It covers onboard systems and data collection

infrastructure, onshore systems and data standards, as well as

procedures for system health monitoring and compliance verification.

The voluntary class notation includes MO and class

requirements, as well as requirements for service providers, for

example OEMs involved in monitoring and maintaining given

systems and equipment. It also enables vessel owners and managers

to keep better track of hardware and software updates and


»As the era of ship connectivity progresses and systems become

more deeply integrated, we need to focus on increasing harmonization

and creating processes and services that will help to reap

the safety and efficiency benefits of e-navigation,« said Geir Dugstad,

Technical Director, DNV Maritime. Key industry contributors

included, navigation systems manufacturer Kongsberg

The Hurtigruten Coastal Express ship »Polarlys« piloted the service

Maritime (KM) and its digital arm, Kongsberg Digital (KDI),

while Norway’s Hurtigruten Coastal is one of several shipowners

that piloted the service.

World premiere of new FineFilterUnit FFU

At SMM, Boll & Kirch has launched its brand-new FFU design

for the treatment of bleed-off water from hybrid or closed loop

Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS), and Exhaust Gas Recirculation

(EGR) / Exhaust Gas Cooling (EGC) Systems.

»The new design is based on Bollfilter’s application expertise

and underlines their market leadership with the most systems

supplied to EGCS- and Engine-manufacturers since 2018. Several

improvements have been realized to optimize the benefits for the

customer and operator,« the company states.

Among those benefits, Boll & Kirch names process improvement

as modified components for improved process control

and more efficient process operation result in lower operational

costs. The systems’ modularity offers a new and flexible

design for different flow rates. Another benefit is compactness:

The Boll & Kirch solutions have minimum space requirements

and optimized arrangement, including highly improved maintainability.

The company also put a focus on user friendliness

through simplification of interaction and operation by smart

control features. For compliance with environmental regulations,

the treatment of bleed-off water with ceramic membranes delivers

still safe and continuous compliance with the discharge

requirements of MARPOL Annex VI, resolutions MEPC.340(77)

resp. MEPC.307(73) and enhances marine environmental protection.

As Bollfilter is developing, producing, and utilizing its own

ceramic membranes (BOLLbrane) in addition to its own R&D-,

engineering-, testing- and production capabilities, they have the

know how about the core component of the system and can offer

the best process solution, also for other demanding applications

i.e., CCUS (Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage).

external parties. All components are

synchronized to help deliver the best

results for maximizing the efficiency of

all the assets. Digitalization is the

backbone of the ecosystem, preparing

us for a future of autonomous ship operation.

It is important to know the

technical status of all onboard assets to

operate a vessel autonomously. The SI-

SHIP EcoMAIN suite’s condition

monitoring features help enable this


Concerning the SISHIP EcoMAIN suite,

which processes within a company can be

digitalized, and what benefits does it bring


Müller: Because we offer an open,

scalable digital ecosystem with the SI-

SHIP EcoMAIN suite, we can collaborate

closely with our customers

and partners to meet the specific needs

of their digitalization journeys.

Beyond integrating platforms into customers’

IT landscapes, Siemens Energy’s

expertise is our deep knowledge

about the complete drive train – from

energy production to the ship’s propeller.

What does a shipowner need to do to

implement Siship Ecomain?

Müller: The SISHIP EcoMAIN suite

uses a vessel’s existing sensors. Data

from existing systems (e.g., machine

room automation, navigation systems,

loading computer, power management

systems, propulsion systems, etc.) is

integrated into the SISHIP EcoMAIN

suite. Depending on the customer’s

needs, we scale the system to the correct

size and incorporate the onboard

system into the given landscape. The

EcoMAIN suite shore, or, if you like to

call it, the central fleet management

system, is a cloud-based solution. The

interface to the EcoMAIN suite vessel

is done via the Internet; therefore, we

need Internet connectivity onboard

the vessels.

As we see ourselves as a partner for

digitalization, which is, for me, a long

journey together, we also address all

View of the SISHIP EcoMain Software

phases of a digitalization project – starting

from integrating and installing different

services throughout the vessel’s lifetime

(like security services, for example).

For which types of vessels is this solution


Müller: The SISHIP EcoMAIN suite is

scalable for any vessel – from small fish

farm vessels with at least 100 measurement

points to large cruise liners where

we have more than 40,000 measurement


What are your plans for the SISHIP

EcoMAIN suite? How will it be further

developed in the future, and which

functions should or can still be integrated

into it?

Müller: For me, the next level of digitalization

is to break down the individual

silos and bring them all into one

ecosystem. Combining the different

solutions into a synchronized ecosystem

can generate additional benefits

for our customers. This is what we continue

to work on today.

MTP and Openbridge:

Ready for the Future of Shipbuilding

© Bachmann Electronic

Simple and safe retrofitting: Standardized, exportable automation and visualization data

enable the rapid import of new third-party systems into existing visualization applications

Maritime vessels comprise numerous

systems from a wide variety of

manufacturers. The result: thousands of

discrete communication signals, a

multitude of different interfaces, and

significant programming work during

commissioning. This increases susceptibility

to errors and the risk of information

loss during documentation.

In addition, inconsistent visualization

solution structures make it difficult for

the bridge to maintain a complete overview.

Bachmann has eliminated these problems

by co-developing and supporting

the Module Type Package (MTP) and

OpenBridge software standards.

Simplification at Every Stage

of the Value Chain

The MTP description format standardizes

communication between systems

and management on ships. »With MTP

we are pursuing higher speeds of engineering,

commissioning and integration.

This will ultimately lead to

more accurate project schedules and

will significantly reduce the Total Cost

of Ownership,« says Burkhard Staudacker,

describing Bachmann‘s goals.

The Key Account Manager believes

that the standard is a major step forward

for the maritime industry towards

Industry 4.0.

Through a VDMA working group,

leading manufacturers are jointly developing

the maritime standardization project

based on the MTP process technology

standard. The group includes experts

in ship automation technology,

mechanical engineers, system integrators,

shipyards, owners, universities and institutes.

Developing an acceptable standard

for the entire shipbuilding industry

is a challenge, says Staudacker: »With this

approach, we are aiming for maximum

acceptance; concrete benefit at every

stage of the value chain has been part of

the project from the very beginning.«

Thanks to MTP, manufacturers of

subsystems such as thrusters, gear -

boxes, or separators can easily provide

their SCADA systems with application

visualizations and interfaces. The

know-how always remains with the

manufacturer: »Import into the control

system only involves the interface, and

not the entire program,« reassures the

Key Account Manager. In addition, it is

now possible to achieve complete system

approval during the Factory Acceptance

Test (FAT), including electrical

interfaces – eliminating the need

for a second commissioning onboard

the ship.

System integration reduces the cost

of automation system engineering and

visualization, as well as commissioning.

It also saves time at the shipyard:

»Module testing by manufacturers

means that the majority of signal

tests are no longer required during

cruiser commissioning – a labor intensive

process that typically takes around

four months,« explains Burkhard

Staudacker. Owners can expect a significant

increase in investment security.

Unified communication with MTP

simplifies the retrofitting and implementation

of new systems from

other suppliers: »It‘s as easy as installing

a printer in the office – the machine

can be operated immediately,«

says Staudacker. Lower susceptibility to

errors during engineering and commissioning

also significantly reduces

service costs.

Next Generation

Maritime Workstations

To relieve the bridge crew during daily

operations, atvise® scada supports visualizations

based on the OpenBridge

framework. This delivers a simple, clear

and consistent design, intuitive interactions

and reusable components. The

free, open-source design guide pursues

the development of safe and efficient

maritime workplaces and accounts for

international shipbuilding regulations.

The numerous OpenBridge elements

in atvise® scada enable screen interfaces

to be easily adapted with widgets during

system operation. Building blocks such

as main engine data, rudder position,

azimuth, thruster, and various other display

and control elements facilitate completely

customizable interfaces with

About Bachmann electronic

easy-to-place elements. Safety is also at

the forefront: clearly assignable alarms

allow the initiation of targeted measures.

For crew, the uniform interface reduces

familiarization time when changing

ships, as the look and feel is very similar.

Stronger Together

The combination of the MTP and Open-

Bridge standards ensures flexible, fast

and safe engineering in the maritime industry

and provides highly reliable systems.

Burkhard Staudacker is certain:

»These open standards enable us and our

partners to combine our strengths and

work together on better solutions for the

future. In turn, this will maximize results

for the entire industry.«

Leading Decarbonisation in Maritime

The journey towards decarbonisation

is not a passive one; it requires

proactive research, development and investment

and it requires steps to be taken

today. Achieving the necessary environmental

targets laid out by the International

Maritime Organization (IMO)

and others will need collaboration and

commitment from all who operate within

the maritime industry. Wärtsilä is helping

to chart the course to decarbonisation,

taking single yet meaningful steps to

progress towards a cleaner, greener future

for shipping.

It’s important that, as the industry

progresses on this journey, we don’t forget

about the customer’s core requirements.

Operational efficiency is a natural

concern that ship owners and operators

encounter every day and that’s why it’s

crucial that as innovation and development

continues, that conversations

between OEMs and their customers also

continue and that industry-wide

collaborative efforts take all factors into

consideration. That’s why Wärtsilä is part

of several projects such as the Getting to

Zero Coalition, Ammonia 2–4, SeaTech

Consortium to name a few, where they

work alongside different stakeholders

and real progress is made towards

making zero-emission shipping a reality.

One of the key components of the sustainability

drive is alternative fuels. Work

at Wärtsilä, and across the industry, has

been ongoing for a number of years on

the development of not only these fuels,

but also the development of a viable infrastructure

is paramount to decarbonisation

efforts. As new fuels become

available, additional complexities and opportunities

will be presented to owners

and operators and that’s why Wärtsilä

continually views the decarbonisation of

the industry, as a journey, with multiple

single steps.

Helping to lead that journey and approaching

it step-by-step, means that one

core area of work at Wärtsilä revolves

around future-proofing the decisions and

investments that ship owners and operators

are making. Many of the key environmental

targets and objectives that the

industry is facing will come into effect

within a single vessel’s lifetime, so it’s

crucial that the decisions made today

consider those objectives and protect the

ship owner’s primary asset. The future of

fuels is not a concrete certainty, the variety

available and the choices that are

being made are being driven by many

factors, from operational profile through

to availability and infrastructure.

Wärtsilä has years of experience within

the field of future fuels, and that work

and investment is reflected in the everincreasing

engine portfolio. The broad

range of developing alternative fuels

means that flexibility is the answer. Dualfuel

engines, such as the recently

launched Wärtsilä 46TS-DF or the upcoming

Wärtsilä 25 announcement at

SMM 2022, provide a future-proofed solution

for owners. As the decarbonisation

journey continues, fuel flexibility is paramount.

For example, a vessel with a dualfuel

engine operating on HFSO and LNG

may look to add in an alternative moving

forward, whether that’s using LNG alongside

drop-in hydrogen or ammonia.

That is why engine flexibility and

understanding operational and vesseltype

requirements are at the heart of for

all developments and new technologies.

© Wärtsilä

Wärtsilä 25 can power a broad range of vessels

The Wärtsilä 25, announced and unveiled

at SMM 2022, is a prime example

of a future proof and innovative engine

developed with the considerations of

customers in mind. A next-generation,

medium speed engine, the Wärtsilä 25

can power a broad range of vessels, helping

to deliver minimal emissions and giving

owners and operators the ability to

take strides on their journey towards net

zero. The engine’s modular design provides

maximum flexibility, efficiency, and

fuel economy today, while also making it

easier to upgrade and integrate greener

fuels in the future.

As the maritime industry continues its

energy transition, engine updates and developments

such as the Wärtsilä 25 are

just one example of the global technology

group’s ongoing commitment to supporting

owners and operators – offering solutions

that offer immediate operational

flexibility and emissions benefits while

continuing to prepare for tomorrow.

The availability and development of

cleaner fuels should not be viewed as a

barrier for those seeking to take strides

and make immediate emissions gains

today. There are significant first steps on

22 Thursday | 08-09-2022



that journey that can be made today from

optimised routing and voyage planning

through to existing energy saving technologies

and hydrodynamic improvements.

For those wanting to reduce

emissions now there are options available,

from installing efficiency-boosting

technology, such as wind-assist, propulsion

systems improvements or air lubrication.

Future fuels are certainly a

major part in the industry’s decarbonisation

movement, but there are also alternative

avenues that warrant exploration.

Roger Holm, President Wärtsilä Marine

Power, said: »Our industry is on a

journey. The environmental targets laid

out by the IMO bring with them opportunities

for wide-scale change. It is so important

that while we continue to collaborate

and work together to reach our

goals, we take each moment as it comes,

one step at a time. Reaching the greener,

cleaner future that we all want to achieve

is a long and winding road but the deadline

to reach our objectives is only getting

closer so it’s critical that when considered,

future proofed developments,

technologies and decisions are available

to us, we seize the initiative. Our constantly

developing engine portfolio is just

one example of our work to provide the

industry with viable solutions. Through

tireless work and constant dialogue with

stakeholders across the maritime landscape,

we’re proud to be playing a key role

in shipping’s ecosystem where combining

the financial viability with the decarbonisation

development will be the key item

during the next decade.«

Commenting on the development on

new engine designs, Stefan Nysjö, Vice

President, Power Supply, Wärtsilä Marine

Power, added: »Our engine portfolio

plays such an important role in the industry’s

broader environmental goals. Improved

operational efficiency and immediate

emissions reductions are very

welcome benefits but perhaps the most

critical element within the context of

where maritime is heading, is their flexibility.

The modular designs and the dualfuel

technology allow owners and operators

to keep taking those steps forward.

When considering the varied alternative

fuels landscape, we don’t yet have all the

answers, but with flexibility and an

understanding of our customer’s assets

and requirements at the core of all of our

work, engines such as the Wärtsilä 25

allow us to encourage and facilitate sustainable

progress today knowing that we

are prepared for when the future fuels era

About: Wärtsilä

does become clearer As the deadlines

draw nearer and the shipping world continues

to progress towards our goals,

Wärtsilä’s commitment to researching,

developing, and creating new technologies

will play a major part in driving

the industry forward.«

The time for action is now. The IMO’s

targets give the industry scope to develop

solutions, but it is still a relatively tight

timeline. Where the infrastructure for

particular alternative fuels perhaps isn’t

currently feasible or commercially viable,

there are still decisions that can be made

today, with the understanding that they

allow you to be prepared for the developments

of tomorrow. It’s critically important

that the entire industry engages with

this narrative and continues to proactively

drive forward as an interconnected

ecosystem, operating as a collective of

stakeholders to enact change, promote

development, innovate, research and ultimately

deliver necessary change to the

entire maritime landscape.

Wärtsilä is a global leader in innovative technologies and lifecycle solutions for the marine

and energy markets. We emphasise innovation in sustainable technology and services

to help our customers continuously improve their environmental and economic

performance. Our dedicated and passionate team of 17,000 professionals in more than

200 locations in 68 countries shape the decarbonisation transformation of our industries

EEXI performance control for Uni-Tankers

Berg Propulsion delivers EEXI performance control for Danish shipping company

Uni-Tankers. Efficiency enhancements to engine control are said to bring 15 – 17 %

in energy savings for two of the leading tanker company’s existing ships

Uni-Tankers has confirmed that installing

a new control system from

Berg Propulsion has been pivotal in

achieving a remarkable 15–17 % efficiency

gain on board two existing ships, in a

retrofit project that has significantly reduced

fuel consumption and emissions.

The efficiency gains reflect the installation

of Berg’s MPC800 control systems

and an upgrade of main engines on board

the chemical tankers Anhout Swan and

Lessow Swan to run in variable rpm


International Maritime Organization

targets envisage a 40 % reduction in

greenhouse gasses from ships by 2030.

Next year, owners face a new IMO regime

on ship efficiency, demanding they adhere

to an Energy Efficiency for Existing

ships Index (EEXI) and provide their

Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII). Each

ship’s EEXI rating is generated with reference

to an Energy Efficiency Design

Index (EEDI) baseline.

While ships built today may be designed

for optimal fuel efficiency at lower

speeds, those delivered 7–15 years ago

were optimized for higher engine loads.

With fuel prices at unprecedented levels,

suboptimal performance by propulsion

systems running at »part load« is a cost

inefficiency that can eat into competitiveness.

The ability to control power more

effectively using variable speeds cuts

energy use overall, reducing both fuel

consumption and emissions.

Danish shipping company Uni-

Tankers consulted Berg Propulsion and

Zeppelin on its options to enhance the efficiency

of the 2008-built tankers »Anhout

Swan« and »Lessow Swan« operating

at 14 kn. Berg simulations demonstrated

that, in combination, the precise

control available to the MPC800 system

and a modification of the ships’ fourstroke

MaK 8M32C main engines would

deliver significant efficiency gains for

controllable pitch (CP) propellers and


»This is an excellent example of the

way vessels already in operation can be

optimized to anticipate the transition to

Uni-Tankers, owner of »Anhout Swan«, cooperated with Berg Propulsion

the EEXI and CII regimes,« says Jonas

Nyberg, Managing Director West for

Berg Propulsion. »The aim is to stay

ahead of the curve and help our customers

move towards greener operations

with lower CO 2

emissions by offering solutions

which also enhance competitiveness.«

Installing the MPC800 control system

upgrade is one of several class-approved

options devised by Berg Propulsion to

help ships rise to efficiency challenges. In

close cooperation with owners and operators,

Berg analyzes a ship’s current and

future operational needs, evaluates its

EEXI rating, and uses 3D scanning and

modelling tools to develop retrofit options

that offer cost-based efficiency

gains, also factoring in any necessary

drydocking work.

»The objective is to deliver efficiency

gains where they are needed most,« says

Magnus Thorén, Energy & Efficiency

team leader, Berg Propulsion. »Variable

speed control allows the owner to achieve

significant efficiency improvements by

© Uni-Tankers

delivering greater engine responsiveness

to changing loads.«

»Our way to measure the success of a

project is how much benefit our total integrated

main propulsion solutions will

bring for our customers operation« says

Mattias Hansson, Global Account Manager,

Berg Propulsion. »We are pleased

for the very good and open cooperation

with Uni-Tankers and with our dealer

Erik Hass at Zeppelin in Denmark to enable

these efficiency upgrades in order to

maximize the gains in ship performance

and lowering the total cost of ownership.«

Other Berg retrofit options include

propeller blade optimization (including

replacement), the installation of a Net

Frequency Stabilizer so that the shaft

generator can operate in variable speed

and upgrading the control system software

to enable »Dynamic Drive« cruise

control, says Thorén. The Dynamic Drive

is software package that is installed in the

Berg control system to optimize the propeller

pitch and propeller rpm for any

given condition.

Enabling marine electric propulsion

A new range of variable speed marine generator sets demonstrates the Volvo’s commitment

to leading the marine industry in its transformation towards sustainable marine propulsion.

More vessels will be able to install modular hybrid systems delivering fuel efficiency gains

Volvo Penta has launched a new range

of variable speed marine generator

sets – a key enabler for electric propulsion

for marine vessels – demonstrating

the company’s commitment to leading

the marine industry in its transformation

towards sustainable marine


Now a standard part of the Volvo

Penta marine offer, the range of variable

speed marine generator sets allows shipyards

to install hybrid-electric modular

propulsion systems today. This important

move towards modular propulsion

enables operators to invest in new

vessels with the peace of mind that they

are built ready and adaptable for emerging

alternative energy sources.

This range of variable speed marine

generator sets are a core part of Volvo

Penta solutions designed for hybrid and

electric applications. It allows to build

vessels with smaller battery banks and

charge them while on the move, which

makes the switch to hybrid-electric marine

propulsion more cost-efficient and

accessible today. This technology is already

being used by Volvo Penta customers,

such as Swedish Transport Administration

and MHO-Co.

With the technology now working efficiently

in proven, real-world applications,

Volvo Penta is offering the

range with models starting from D 8,

190 kWe and running up to 545 KWe for

the D 16. Adding to the range’s ability to

improve an operation’s sustainability credentials,

all diesel engines can run on

HVO 100


in -

stead of

standard diesel, to

reduce fossil CO2 emissions by up

to 90 % – providing a robust and sustainable

solution for today.

»By making our Volvo Penta variable

speed marine generator sets more widely

available, it takes us further forward in

our journey towards more electric- and

fuel-cell propulsion for the marine industry,«

said Johan Inden, head of the Volvo

Penta marine business. »Now, more

vessels will be able to install modular hybrid

propulsion systems ready to be

adapted to future energy choices, meanwhile

delivering important sustainability

and fuel efficiency gains from day one.«

A typical installation sees a modular

series of variable speed marine generator

sets installed to power electric drives

with or without battery packs. This direct

current (DC) grid system is easy

to upgrade with alternative power

sources and has fewer components,

weighing less – especially

when compared to batteries

as the sole energy carrier –

making the vessel more efficient.

The modular installation also

© Volvo Penta

creates the option of using the

minimum number of engines to

deliver the power needed so that

the marine generator sets are able

to run in the efficiency sweet spot.

The flexibility of a modular installation

is further amplified by the fact that

the new Volvo Penta variable speed marine

generator sets, in each of the respective

power ranges, are the most compact

solutions that meet the latest IMO Tier

III regulations. They’re also watercooled,

which means less noise and more

efficiency for owners.

Construction contract to be awarded soon

This was announced by the customer, the

Helmholz Centre Hereon. The intention

to award the contract has already been

sent to the shipyards involved, but certain

deadlines still have to be met before the official

award can be made. However, a model

of the »Ludwig Prandtl II« is already

being presented at the SMM at the stand

of Technolog Services. The company was

initially entrusted by Hereon with a feasibility

study and subsequently also with

the final design for the research vessel.

»This vessel is optimised for research

in coastal and inland waters,« emphasises

Technolog’s project manager Fridtjof

Rohde. This means that the ship will have

a minimal draught to sail in shallow water.

The length is limited by the locks it

will have to pass through in the future.

The ship will accomodate several technologies

for different needs, emphasises

Volker Dzaak, representative of Hereon.

Representatives of Hereon and Technolog in front of the model of the new »Ludwig Prandtl II«

There will be a wet and an electronics laboratory.

In addition, there will be various

deck equipment, such as an A-frame at

the stern or a large crane in the front part

of the ship. It will also be possible to carry

additional containers on the afterdeck.

A fuel cell will be added to the dieselelectric

propulsion system and will be

used to charge the batteries installed, so

that the vessel can sail for a certain time

with significantly lower noise emissions.

»The SMM is a great forum for us, because

now we want to tender the components

in order to install them in a timely manner,«

says Dzaak. The »Ludwig Prandtl II«

will be delivered in spring 2024.

Campus am Isemarkt – a guest of good friends in chic Harvestehude

Florian Visser

Commercial Publishing Director HANSA

Ervin’s Campus makes you feel at home

The »Campus« is located in the middle of

Harvestehude, one of Hamburg‘s finest

and probably most expensive districts.

This is where the neighbourhood meets

for a cosy dinner. No Harvestehude high

society – but rather down-to-earth and

yet chic.

The Campus is in an idyllic location

and has a vast, roofed outdoor terrace

where you can enjoy the fresh air of the

quiet area in almost any weather. If there

is no seat available on the terrace, you can

be placed inside the restaurant, where you

will sit at dark, wooden Hanseatic tables.

You will feel as if friends have invited

you to their home dining room. The

Campus is mainly frequented by regulars

who come for the amiable staff. The

owner Ervin is a gastronome with a

passion, and every guest notices that immediately.

During the evening, he strolls

up to each table and ensures that each of

his guests is happy.

The menu is small but fine and offers

the best home cooking at a very fair price.

Everyone will find something delicious,

from pasta with gambas to roast beef and

vegetarian goat cheese. My tip for a visit:

At Ervin’s, it’s best to order a »Schnitzel«

with fried potatoes – accompanied by a

freshly tapped beer and, for dessert, definitely

an apple pancake with vanilla ice

cream. Reservations are not possible and,

therefore, not necessary.

150 Jahre Schiffe für die Meere der Welt

On 3 July 1872, a group of Flensburg businessmen met to launch a

company that was completely new for the time. They founded the

Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft, or FSG for short, with the aim

of building »iron sailing and steam ships«. Right from the start,

FSG produced the most modern and reliable ships of their time.

Innovative solutions and high quality standards are the constants in

the 150-year history in which the traditional shipyard has been able

to hold its own despite two world wars and numerous adversities

and crises to this day. Just in time for the anniversary, Hamburg

journalist and author Matthias Gretzschel vividly traces the

development of FSG and links it to the respective economic, urban

and contemporary history. He lets employees and companions

have their say, telling of the special spirit of this traditional shipyard.

But the focus is not only on history, but also on the challenges

of the future. For example, CEO Philipp Maracke and his colleague

Rolf Nagel provide information on the strategies with which the

Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft will use the most modern and

innovative technologists to build ships that will contribute to

achieving the reduction targets of the Paris Climate Agreement.
