Marin Teknikk to design large Offshore vessel
Kleven Verft has entered into an (MOU) agreement with Debmarine Namibia about building a new MT6027 Offshore vessel of Marin Teknikk design. The vessel will follow the MT6022 SS Nujoma delivered in 2016 to Debmarine Namibia.The new Offshore vessel will be the largest ship ever designed by Marin Teknikk. With a lenght of 177m and a breadth of 27m, it will be a massive vessel with an extensive package of equipment on board. The equipment to be installed is developed by De Beers during a long period of time, specialized for finding diamonds laying in a 4-5 meters' thick sediment layer. The sediments are left on the seabed by the river Oranje during a period of ~3 million years. The vessel will accommodate 109 people and are designed according to the class notation ECO (Clean Design). High focus is given to low fuel consumption, which reduces emission to the environment. The vessel is equipped with diesel electric frequency controlled propulsion, highly efficient azimuth thrusters, 4P mooring system and dynamic positioning system.  - We are very pleased to announce this agreement, states CEO Svein-Rune Gjerde, an agreement that will secure a lot of work for our employees, both in Norway and Poland the coming months.

MT2007 Yara Birkeland - modelltest ved Sintef Ocean
I dag startet testingen av verdens første autonome containerskip ved Sintef Ocean i Trondheim. Marin Teknikk har designet fartøyet i samarbeid med Yara og Kongsberg, og har sammen med Sintef Ocean bygget en modell som nå blir testet i havbassenget deres i Trondheim.Yara Birkeland blir i full størrelse 80 meter lang, 15 meter bred og har plass til 120 standard 20-fots containere (TEU). Containerskipet vil med full last stikke fem meter dypt, men bare tre meter i ballast. Normal hastighet, som også er bestemmende for skrogform, vil være seks knop, mens totalfart er 13 knop. Yara og Kongsberg planlegger prøvedrift fra andre halvår 2018 med et lite mannskap, plassert i en containerbasert og modulær enhet som kan løftes av. I 2019 begynner tester med fjernkontroll før skipet i 2020 skal kunne seile fullstendig autonomt mellom havnene i Porsgrunn, Brevik og Larvik. F.v. Prosjektleder Jarl Åge Vågsholm, Salgsdirektør Richard K. Gjerde og CEO Svein Rune Gjerde, alle Marin Teknikk AS. Administrerende direktør Svein Rune Gjerde var svært fornøyd med testingen av modellen. - Det er fantastisk interessant å være med på dette. Det er starten på en revolusjon, sa han.Olje- og energiminister Terje Søviknes annonserte under offisiellmodelltesting i Trondheim i dag at Enova går inn med 133 millioner kroner til prosjektet. - Envoa-støtten viser at vi lever opp til vår ambisjoner i havstrategien. Vi klarer ikke en omstilling uten å tenke på bunnlinjen. Det er en styrke å kunne kombinere private og statlige midler, sa Søviknes. F.v. CEO Marin Teknikk AS Svein Rune Gjerde, Konsernsjef Yara Svein Tore Holsether, Olje og Energiminister Terje Søviknes. Administrerende direktør Vegar Johansen sa at modelltesten i Havbassenget er historisk. - Dette vi er vitne til her nå vil gå inn i historiebøkene. Norge leder an både på autonome og nullutslippsfartøy. Her har vi begge deler, sa han. Sintef Ocean har kjørt et modelltestprogram sammen med Marin Teknikk for å finne fart og ytelse. Nå skal den over i slepetanken og testes i flere typer bølger. MT2007 Yara Birkeland

VIDEO: Successful Sea Launch ceremony of MT1112 Argos Georgia
On Friday 15th of September, the MT1112 Argos Georgia was launched in beautiful weather conditions from Tersan Shipyard in Turkey.The 54 m longliner vessel for Ervik Havfiske and Frøyanes AS is a Taylor made fishing vessel designed to operate in the Southern Ocean heading for Patagonian Toothfish. Hildegunn Tunheim Aarsheim from Ervik Havfiske got the honor to cut the moorings and release the vessel from the slipway. The vessel and the sister vessel Nordic Prince is planned for delivery Q1 2018. “These two pcs of new longliner vessels, Nordic Prince and Argos Georgia that we are building for Ervik Havfiske, are rather emotional projects for us. Froyanes which was the first vessel which we delivered to Ervik Havfiske back in 2011 was the pioneering new building project for Tersan Shipyard leading us into the fishing vessel market. Designed by Marin Teknikk of Norway, Froyanes was a big success for all parties that were involved, especially for the owners. The winning team in that project cooperated once again in order to deliver Ervik Havfiske two more state-of-the-art longliners for their fishing operations in the antarctic. As Tersan Shipyard we thank Ervik Havfiske, in particular to Stig Ervik, Kjell-Magne Ervik and Geir Rune Aarsheim, Marin Teknikk, DNV GL and our financer Ziraatbank for their endless support in these projects. Last but not the least we thank all of our employees who has put a lot of efforts in these vessels so far. When these two vessel sail together beginning of next year we will all follow them with proud.”Mr. Mehmet GaziogluManaging Director at Tersan Shipyard From the slipway Owners and representatives for Ervik Havfiske.

MT6015 Olympic Orion to install 'Walk-to-Work' system

Olympic Shipping has chosen Kongsberg Maritime's new K-Walk integrated vessel gangway solution for installation aboard the Multipurpose Offshore Vessel (MPSV), Olympic Orion. Designed to significantly increase efficiency and safety for Walk-to-Work duties, K-Walk will be integrated with the advanced Kongsberg Information Management System (K-IMS) and the existing K-Pos Dynamic Positioning system on board Olympic Orion, which will be upgraded as part of the installation in the latter half of 2017.

Olympic Orion will utilise the innovative K-Walk solution following its launch as part of KONGSBERG's new Integration Strategy in Fall 2016. The system takes a new approach to increasing productivity and efficiency for Walk-to-Work vessels by improving operability of key systems on board. In addition to full integration with K-IMS to enable mission and route planning for increased service capability within a wind farm, the system interconnects with the DP and a planning station. The system extends vessel availability by increasing the operational weather window.

Through integrated mission planning, automated vessel manoeuvring and gangway hook-up, K-Walk introduces a step-change for increasing efficiency and productivity of the Walk-to-Work operations that are integral to Wind Farm Construction and Maintenance projects. While providing a completely safe, motion compensated gangway for the fast transfer of personnel and materials, integration enables more efficient approach and settlement at wind turbines and more effective logistics. The system is activated prior to entering a wind turbine's safety zone, reducing vessel speed and launching the K-Walk hook up process during approach. Because of the integration with the DP, the gangway is able to move into position while the vessel is still moving, positioning it safely as the vessel arrives on station.

The integration of K-Walk with K-IMS is a unique approach that enables in-depth mission planning, resulting in increased productivity and efficiency by finding the most preferred route for increased service capability within the wind farm. The system will be fully connected with Olympic Orion's DP system, offering increased operability with a new condition based operator environment, which requires less manpower and has minimal training requirements. The K-Walk solution for Olympic Orion will also improve time for mobility and safety with an integrated lift system for transfer of people and goods, including electric trolleys (under design) for movement of pallets across the gangway. Overall, K-Walk significantly enhances operational time efficiency, which improves productivity with the ability to serve more wind turbines within the same time frame.

"We are very satisfied to select Kongsberg Maritime's new fully integrated Gangway solution for our MPSV Olympic Orion," says Bjørn Kvalsund, COO, Olympic Subsea. "We also see a potential to install this integrated Gangway solution on board several of our existing vessels in order to provide W2W services into an expanding and interesting market segment."

"Olympic Orion embodies the future that we envisioned with the launch of our Integration Strategy last year and we are delighted to work with Olympic Shipping for our cutting-edge new K-Walk solution," said Stene Førsund, Executive Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, Kongsberg Maritime. "K-Walk provides Olympic Orion with total oversight of route planning and gangway hook-up operations. It enables better real-time and long-term management decisions, and empowers safer, more predictable, and efficient operations through reduced human interaction and automation based on the deep integration of critical systems on board."
