LNG Bunkering project launched in Denmark

The port of Frederikshavn announced that the EU-financed LNG Bunkering Project 'The Nordic Maritime Hub' project has been officially launched in Denmark. The project consortium, consisting of Port of Frederikshavn, Kosan Crisplant and Stena Line, will meet the demands of the modern maritime sector by improving the port access facilities, establishing shore side power supply to be used by e.g. Stena Line’s ferries, and by establishing bunkering facilities for alternative fuels.

Stena Line goes green with fuel oil homogenisers

 Stena Line  will take advantage of LEMAG’s SLASHPOL-E WIF homogenisers to reduce NOx emissions, particulate matter, smoke, and most of all fuel consumption.  The company has fitted a total of sixteen of its vessels with LEMAG WIF homogenisers.The combination of LEMAG SLASHPOL E-WIF and the HFT stabiliser results in significantly increased fuel economy, while reducing the NOx, black smoke and particulate matter, and CO2 emissions, states LEMAG.WIF (water in fuel) homogenisers have been around for a long time, but like a lot of existing marine technology it has received a lot of renewed interest in the last few years, which has resulted in increased investment in R&D. This is due not only to the soaring fuel costs up to 2015 and the need to reduce emissions, but the knowledge within the marine industry that the WIF technology has advanced to the point where it is now a very viable investment for ship owners and operators.The complete LEMAG SLASHPOL E-WIF system comprises of torsion meters, Coriolis or PD fuel meters, and it’s V-Per monitoring and management system, as well as incorporating an impressive range of safety devices which are absolutely essential to give total confidence to the operators, in what is virtually a plug ...

World’s First Methanol Ship Announced By Stena Line

Stena Line has announced that it will convert its vessel Stena Germanica to methanol propulsion, making it the world’s first methanol vessel. The 240m-long ferry will be converted to run on methanol at a cost of EUR22m ($27.5m), the first such conversion of its type. The 1,500-passenger ferry Stena Germanica will be the world’s first ship powered by methanol. With an aim to reduce emissions, the conversion of the vessel will take place at the at Remontova Shipyard in Poland starting January 2015. Wartsila in co-operation with Stena Teknic will be using an engine conversion kit, which will allow the vessel to operate in dual-fuel configuration using methanol supplied by Methanex. Stena line also said that they are constantly evaluating different fuels for the future and to be first in the world with a methanol conversion is a big step towards sustainable transportation.  “Our aim has always been to apply innovation to increase the benefits for our passengers and society in general. We constantly review the use of different types of fuel for the future. And now to be the world’s first owner of a ship with methanol-drive, is a big step towards sustainable transport. The project is taking shape ...

Union disappointed at Stena Line decision

Stena Line decides to operate the HSS Stena Explorer service on a seasonal basis only Nautilus International has expressed disappointment at Stena Line's decision to operate the HSS Stena Explorer service on a seasonal basis only.Stena Line has written to the Union to confirm that the fast craft service between Holyhead and Dun Laoghaire will operate until 13 September 2011 and not recommence until May 2012 with all 53 crew jobs being placed at risk of redundancy.A 30-day consultation has begun and the Union will be looking to find alternative solutions to the current downturn in trading.'It is always disappointing when we face challenges like this and we are seeking urgent talks with the company,' said industrial officer Steve Doran.'We believe that any drop in revenue from the fast craft service is only a temporary issue due to the current financial crisis and there is evidence elsewhere that trade has already begun to recover.'Our aim will be to ensure that we retain the professional mariners that this nation is dependent on as so many of our goods are transported by the sea,' he confirmed.In a letter to the Union, Stena Line claimed that on average just over 70% of the ...
