MAN Energy Solutions and KONGSBERG, the international technology group, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding. Hong Kong-based dry bulk shipping company Pacific Basin Shipping has signed a service agreement. Singapore-based Eastern Pacific Shipping’s orders for a total of eleven 15,000 TEU containerships have been confirmed. The MOU regarding the exploration of the potential for collaboration on a common data infrastructure. German engine producer MAN Energy Solutions said it was experiencing a record order-intake within its cruise business. The biggest challenge from the impending sulphur cap regulation and the industry’s decarbonization ambitions.
The collaboration will broaden the value offering to vessel operators. Jiangnan Shipyard, owned by China State Shipbuilding Corp (CSSC). German provider of engines and turbomachinery MAN Diesel. It improve the return on investment in digital solutions. MAN Energy Solutions has launched the development of a new low-pressure gas engine. Two tankers powered by dual-fuel ME-LGI engines have each passed 10,000 operating hours. It increase the adoption of secure connectivity. Container feeders, with their frequent port visits and increased time in port. All of the vessels involved are owned by Pacific Basin.
“The complexity of data capture and transfer drives up the cost of these essentially non-core activities”, said Hege Skryseth, president of Kongsberg Digital.
Under the MoU, MAN Energy Solutions is set to investigate the possibility of using Kongsberg Digital’s data. It having booked orders to supply seven new cruise ships with engines plus exhaust-gas-treatment systems. The engine makers is the decision on which fuel will be used. It has ordered an LPG-burning engine for an 86,000 cbm. Vessel Insight, to securely collect and transmit data using MAN Energy Solution’s digital platform. Turbo has decided to rebrand in line with its new vision for the future. The company cited market demand as the rationale behind the move.
A successful trial would allow MAN Energy Solutions to use advanced services. The company said the cumulative value of the orders was close to a three-digit million EUR amount. The ship will be equipped with MAN B&W 6G60ME-LGIP engine. Its remote monitoring and optimization package, to better serve customers. Hybrid power systems often achieve significant efficiency gains and emission reductions in operation modes. The 2016-built methanol tankers Mari Jone and Mari Boyle are managed on time charters for Waterfront Shipping. It prevent efficient development of value adding solutions to the market.
The contract includes field, workshop and technical services. Collaboration between vendors in the industrial digital value chain is therefore a win-win for vendors. Namely, the company has changed its name into MAN Energy Solutions. With this announcement, company expect to cater for the segment in the market. It can focus on digital development within their core competencies. The prioritises low-pressure dual-fuel, and this will complement comprehensive portfolio of solutions. The shipping firm exercised an option connected with an order for five boxships. It will get faster access to better and more cost-efficient solutions.
With 2020 and the new IMO emissions fast approaching, interest in using LPG as a fuel. MAN PrimeServ will manage the contract from Hong Kong in close cooperation with the PrimeServ global network. At MAN Energy Solutions, company feel that the introduction of the ME-LGIP is proving timely. The company aims to complete the development of the new engine during the first half of 2022. The collaboration between the industrial software company and the world-leading engine. Company introducing methanol as a two-stroke marine fuel. The marine solution provider aims to solve a key challenge for the broader adoption of digital solutions.
MAN Energy Solutions was hired to supply the units with two-stroke engines. The first five engines will be conventional MAN B&W 11G90ME-C units. Under the new strategy, the company aims to expand its business portfolio. It encountered the usual teething problems, including addressing the liner lubrication. This typically happens in connection with port visits. MAN Energy Solutions already won the first orders for the new engine earlier in 2018. It’s according to Wayne Jones OBE, Chief Sales Officer and Member of the Executive Board. The 86,000 cbm newbuilds will each be powered by an individual MAN.
The company said that its combined ME-LGI-powered fleet has passed a cumulative total of 50,000 operating hours on methanol. A review of historical AIS data showed that container feeders are a ship type meeting this requirement. It namely the high cost of capturing quality data from the vessels. Company expect this service agreement will help to maximise further our operational and cost efficiencies. The additional six units will be built as MAN B&W 11G90ME-GI dual-fuel configurations operating. The study, entitled HYCAS, examines the cost effectiveness of hybrid power solutions.
“Our commitment is to help our customers increase the safety”, Per Hansson, head of digital said.
Company also enhancing the long-standing partnership between MAN and Pacific Basin. The company could also announce the first retrofit orders for the ME-LGIP in September 2018. MAN Energy Solutions sees the introduction of the low-pressure engine in terms of filling a gap. It leaves vessel owners and operators with an unattractive ROI on their digital investments. The company has added hybrid, storage and digital service technologies to its product range. This could help accelerate the maritime transformation. Speaking at the 4th annual Naftemporiki Shipping Conference, held in Athens on October 3, 2018.
The new technology and digital solutions enable a move towards smarter, more efficient. The orders total almost 300 MW of installed power for cruise ships ranging in size. Through co-operation, company aim to securely onboard customers faster to provide our new digital services. The service experience gathered after 50,000 hours of cumulative operation. MAN Energy Solutions believes fully in its technology, to the extent that we pledge to subsidize the first 10 shipowners. It also expect faster development of core functionality, supported by a stronger focus and customer interaction.
