68 Maritime Reporter & Engineering News ? MAY 2013 NEWSPRODUCTSUnited Arab Shipping Order Alfa Laval WHR Alfa Laval received an order for its Aalborg XS-TC7A waste heat recovery (WHR) economizers for installation af-ter auxiliary engines onboard the entire ß eet of the United Arab Shipping Com- pany. Delivery is scheduled for later this year. With its small footprint and the lowest possible weight to output ratio, the Aalborg XS-TC7A economizer op- timizes the use of waste heat from the auxiliary engine exhaust gases during voyage and port stays. When used in combination with a waste heat recovery system installed after main engine, the Aalborg XS-TC7A contributes to sig- niÞ cant reductions in the oil consump- tion on the oil-Þ red boiler under most load conditions. Each unit will be spe-cially tailored to the individual ship and engine design with due consideration to the existing uptake backpressure and other critical factors.Vessel Management Sys- tem Enhances Maritime Safety in Poole HarborGeoVS was awarded a contract to sup-ply and install its system in Poole Har- bor, Dorset. The system brings a step change in monitoring and managing ship movements in ports and restricted waterways. GeoVS?s system presents a compre- hensive real time picture of what is happening in the waterway, identify- ing individual vessels in a way that is straightforward. Its 3D image gives realistic representations of all the ves-sels, the waterway, port installations and navigational marks such as buoys. GeoVS?s system draws on information from existing radar systems, and supple-ments this with inputs from tidal gauges, meteorological stations and radio based automatic identiÞ cation systems, which are now mandatory for all commercial vessels. The system automatically re- cords the picture and can store it for up to 10 years. This brings big bene Þ ts as a training aid and for investigation and analysis of incidents, particularly if there is litigation.Metal Non-Skid for Workboat Deck Silvagrip, which exceeds Navy Milspec MIL-PRF-24667C for non skid sur- face on Navy Ships, offers revolution- ary, patent pending, extreme grip made of aluminum with ceramic or titanium abrasives. Silvagrip is a surface engi-neered grip that offers: 10 plus years expected life; UV proof; waterproof; oil and chemical resistant; corrosion proof; can be cleaned by scrubbing and/or pres-sure washing; resistant to wear; variable surface textures and proÞ les; apply and use at all temperatures; and is peel and stick. Silvagrip is fabricated alloys, met-als that hold a matrix of sharp ceramic abrasives, with hardness just under dia-monds. Silvagrip is ductile and capable of being shaped or bent, but at the same time giving you the strongest and hard-est non skid wear surface. Raytheon Anschütz Wins IBS Contracts The German navigation system manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz reports a number of contract awards for the delivery of integrated bridge systems to newbuilt vessels for offshore operations. Raytheon Anschütz Singapore, a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon An- schütz, will deliver the bridge navigation system and communication systems to a 4,500 dwt Platfrom Supply Vessel built at Keppel Singmarine Brasil shipyard. The navigation bridge will be equipped according to ABS class requirements with Synapsis Radar and Chart Radar, Synapsis ECDIS, Nauto- Pilot adaptive autopilot system as well as a triple Standard 22 gyro compass system and further navigation sensors. Additionally, Raytheon Anschütz Sin- gapore supplies a wide range of radio communication and broadband equip-ment and CCTV as speci Þ ed by the owner. Raytheon Anschütz will also supply integrated bridge systems to six Plat- form Supply Vessels (PSV) built at Fujian Southeast shipyard in China. The DNV NAUT-OSV compliant bridge systems consist of Radar and Chart Radar systems, two ECDIS, Conning, gyro compasses, autopilot and main navigation sensors. Another contract covers the supply of bridge systems to newbuilds of the Norwegian shipowner BOA Offshore, who have placed orders for two DNV NAUT-OSV classed Multi-Purpose Supply Vessels (MPSV) at Chinese Mingde shipyard. The scope of supply covers Radar, Chart Radar, ECDIS and Conning for the fore and aft bridge as well as gyro compasses, adaptive autopilot and the full package navigation sensors and radio communication equipment.GeoVS was awarded a contract to sup- ply and install its system in Poole Har- bor, Dorset.
