    150 tonnes of steel used in retrofit

    Damen Shipdock Amsterdam retrofitted two antiroll tanks onto GulfMark UK’s Highland Defender and Highland Guardian, both platform supply vessels. In all, 150 tonnes of steel was used for the job.

    Niron Staal manufactured the antiroll tank and hull sections, while the shipyard handled the installation at its 250-meter Panamax drydock. Antiroll tanks are installed onto ships in order to reduce the roll motion and roll angle during adverse weather conditions.

    “The contract was completed within a six week lead-time only, from the initial steel cutting to the vessels’ delivery,” Flip van der Waal, managing director of Shipdock Amsterdam said in a statement. “The lead-in time was practically zero.”

    Prefabrication took three weeks, including constructing the two 75-tonne sections and painting them. Overall, the 87-meter-long PSVs were out of service for six weeks.

    Pasha Hawaii’s new 692-foot Marjorie C was recently launched at VT Halter Marine’s shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss.

    The morning began with a high level of anticipation as workers carefully removed multiple blocks holding the ship in place onshore. As the final block was removed, Marjorie C sped down the tilt beams and glided sideways into the waters of Bayou Casotte, steadying herself in seconds.

    “Launching Marjorie C is a huge and exciting milestone for us,” said George Pasha, IV, Pasha Hawaii President and CEO. “We’re thankful for the many hardworking people involved in her creation, and, while we’re quite eager to get her into service, our immediate focus will be on testing and commissioning her systems.”

    The Marjorie C is set to enter the Mainland/Hawaii trade lane later this year. The new combination container/roll-on/roll-off (ConRo) vessel will sail opposite the Jean Anne and enable Pasha Hawaii to bring weekly service to Hawaii.

    First Wales tidal project to begin work in September

    Tidal Energy unveiled Wales’ first full-scale tidal energy generator at Pembroke Port.

    The Ysbryd y Mor (Spirit of the Sea) weighs 150 tons and measures 16 meters long and 20 meters high. The generator was manufactured by Mustang Marine at Pembroke over the past six months, Tidal Energy said in a statement. Its DeltaStream technology represents several firsts in the nascent tidal energy sector.

    “We have achieved a number of firsts with this project, including those relating to the environmental consents, the grid connection and the installation process undefined where the turbine and foundation are installed together,” Martin Murphy, managing director of Tidal Energy said.

    Unlike other tidal turbines under development, the DeltaStream unit is freestanding undefined gravitational pull anchors it in place, eliminating the need to drill a foundation into the seabed.

    In September, the 400kW-DeltaStream demonstration device will be installed in Ramsey Sound, Pembrokeshire. It is the first project to receive precautionary deploy and monitor environmental consent in a designated Marine Special Area of Conservation. An extensive suite of monitoring equipment will be installed on and around the device in Ramsey Sound for 12 months. After a year of testing, the generator will be removed.

    Plans are underway to build a commercial tidal array off St. Davids Head in Pembrokeshire. The project will consist of nine tidal generators with a combined generating capacity of 10 megawatts.

    The U.K. Department for Energy and Climate Change estimates the U.K. has about 50 percent of Europe’s tidal energy resources, which could meet up to 20 percent of its electricity demand.

    Van der Vlist has transported a barge from Zaandam in North Holland to Exmouth in the U.K.

    The 18-ton barge measured 18 meters long. 4.25 meters wide and 1.6 meters high. It was collected from a depot in Zaandam and transported to the hook of Holland at the mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg ship canal into the North Sea. The barge was loaded on a vessel to cross to Harwich, Van der Vlist said in a statement.

    At Harwich, the barge was again loaded onto a trailer and made its way across England, along with private escorts. When the cargo reached Exmouth, it was unloaded by crane. Soon it will be moved to the shore and floated at high tide to its destination. The barge will be used by Exewake, a water sports provider, as a floating platform for its activities on the River Exe.
