TOTE: construction on LNG-powered vessels progresses

first_imgThe arrival of the world’s first dual-fuel slow-speed engine to General Dynamics’ NASSCO’s Shipyard marks the next phase of construction for TOTE’s Marlin Class vessels, projected to be the world’s safest and cleanest containerships.Doosan Engine, under license from MAN Diesel and Turbo, delivered the first 8L70ME-GI engine. Earlier this year, Doosan completed the engine’s Factory Acceptance Tests, a culmination of months of testing to ensure compliance with U.S. regulations and restrictions. TOTE is the launch customer of the ME-GI engine, a significant advancement in propulsion technology.“The Marlin class vessels, powered by Doosan’s dual-fuel engine, will provide the most modern and reliable service available” stated Anthony Chiarello, President and CEO of TOTE. “These ships will increase shipping capacity, reduce air emissions, and ensure a cleaner environment for workers and port communities.”In addition to the engines, two 900 cubic meter tanks, manufactured by Cryos, were delivered. These massive stainless steel cryogenic tanks weigh 380 tons each and will store liquefied natural gas aboard the Marlin ships.“The arrival of the dual-fuel main engine and LNG tanks at the NASSCO shipyard marks a milestone in the lead ship construction as well as a landmark in the era of green ship technology,” said NASSCO Program Manager for the TOTE Marlin Class, Eric Icke. The first vessel is nearly 40 percent complete and the start of construction on the second Marlin vessel in late May means the shipyard and its more than 3,000 skilled workers will be in full swing to ensure delivery of the Marlins in late 2015 and early 2016.“These vessels are the largest investment in our company’s history” said Denise Tabbutt, one of the three sisters who are primary shareholders in TOTE’s parent company, Saltchuk Resources. “We have a tremendous amount of confidence in the NASSCO team . . and we are lucky to have such incredible partners.”Press Release, July 16, 2014; Image: TOTElast_img read more

India’s LNG imports climb

first_imgIndia’s import of liquefied natural gas rose in the period from April 2014 to March 2015, data from the country’s Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas reveals. The country imported 11.46 million tonnes of LNG in the fiscal year 2014-2015, compared to 10.76 million tonnes in the same period before, according to the Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC), which is a part of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas.However, this data does not include imports of the chilled gas by Reliance Industries, one of the five LNG importing companies in India, PPAC said.The other four companies are Petronet LNG, Shell’s Hazira LNG, GAIL, and GSPC.Moody’s Investors Service said recently in a report that India’s LNG imports could more than double to 24 million tonnes per annum by 2020.The report says the demand for LNG in India would be even greater if it were more widely used by the power generation sector, which currently absorbs only 10 percent of bulk imports because of the fuel’s persistently high price relative to coal and domestic gas.

Remains of South African hunter who disappeared while on a hunting…

first_img44 year old Scott Van Zyl from South Africa disappeared last week on a hunting safari with a Zimbabwean tracker and a pack of dogs, report the telegraph.Scott, a professional hunter, who runs a company that plans hunting trips for foreign clients, is believed to have been eaten by crocodiles on the banks of Limpompo River in Zimbabwe.The father of two is said to have left his truck accompanied by a tracker and his dogs, only for his dogs to return to the camp without him and all his belongings and rifle found in the truck.A rescue team of helicopters, divers and trackers later found his footprints leading to the river bank where his backpack was found by the river.Police and animal nature conservation services decided to shoot two Nile crocodiles at the river that were suspected to have eaten the father of two.‘We found what could possibly be human remains in them,’ said Sakkie Louwrens, who was part of the search team.Forensic experts are testing the human remains found in the crocodiles to see whether they belong to the victim.At least four people have been killed by crocodiles in Zimbabwe in the past month. Zimbabwe has recently been hit by heavy rain, raising river and dam levels, which can bring crocodiles to areas where they are not normally seen.last_img read more
