Greeks rule the waves

Ribbon cutting is performed by Greece’s Prime minister Antonis Samaras, assisted by Maritime minister Miltiadis Varvitsiotis (centre) and Posidonia Exhibitions’ executive director Theodore Vokos. In a stirring Posidonia 2014 opening speech, Greek Prime minister Antonis Samaris paid tribute to the sea and seafaring as defining “the essence of Greece, its history and unique civilization.” Throughout history it was this maritime tradition that had allowed the country to “gain hope and power, overcome difficulties, re-establish prosperity and start over again.” So it was again now, he said, with shipping proving one of the country’s two “champion sectors” - alongside tourism - pulling the country out of its recent financial difficulties. Greece expects to receive a record 20m visitors this year, while Posidonia

2014 has already broken the previous attendance record with more than 1,870 exhibitors from 93 countries. “The economic potential of the Greek commercial fleet and the strategic positioning of Greece in future world commerce are gaining power by the day,” the Prime minister continued. The Greek-operated fleet represents some 15% of world commerce, and in the past 10 years Greek owners have built more than 2,500 oceangoing ships, mainly in Asian shipyards, he continued. “As we speak, a new vessel of Greek ownership is being built every two days worldwide!”. Even more importantly, Greece is

now becoming “the most stable country in a unstable region,” he concluded, and a perfect gateway for commerce from Asian ports, “extending from the Middle East to the Far East and Japan, through the Suez Canal to the continental European markets.” Theodore Veniamis, president of the Union of Greek Shipowners, replied by thanking the Prime minister for his presence and urging that “shipping should be a central part of the vision of European politicians due to its strategic importance for Europe and as the main facilitator of world trade and globalization.” Continuation of the existing Guidelines on State Aid to Maritime Transport were of

“paramount importance,” he stated, reminding that the Greek tonnage tax system established in 1975 had been the prototype for European shipping policy in this area. After the official opening Prime minister Samaris spent nearly three hours touring the exhibition, learning yet more about Greece’s world shipping leadership role. As one leading industry figure had remarked earlier in the day: “We always come to Posidonia to judge the mood of world shipping. It was here two years ago that we first heard people say it was a good time to re-enter the (newbuilding) market, and look how right that proved!”

Tuesday 3 June 2014

The late Aristomenis M Karageorgis, as then president of the Union of Greek Shipowners, co-signed HELMEPA’s Founding Declaration together with the secretary-general of the Panhellenic Seamen’s Federation on 4 June, 1982.

Keeping our seas clean June 4, the mid-mark of Posidonia 2014, is the 32nd anniversary of the founding of the Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association, HELMEPA, an occasion which will be marked by a conference on energy efficiency measures on existing vessels and the induction of four individuals significant to the history of HELMEPA as honorary members. Joseph Angelo, deputy md, INTERTANKO; Efthimios Mitropoulos, IMO secretary-general Emeritus; Captain Panagiotis Tsakos; and Nikolaos Tsavliris, will be inducted during a special ceremony at the conclusion of the works of the conference. To be held in the Posidonia conference hall, the conference runs from 10:30am to 2:00pm and energy saving - an important issue under the current circumstances - will be addressed by speakers from DNV GL, the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), the US Coast Guard, Wärtsilä Greece S.A. and Danaos Shipping Co Ltd. Registration of attendance at the conference can be done electronically, at HELMEPA’s dedicated microsite for this event, by visiting the link:

Children’s guided tour of the exhibition. Further, HELMEPA extends an invitation to all to visit its stand, 2.212, to discuss the initiatives and achievements of our volunteer members in the context of their social corporate responsibility, which they have been consistently honouring throughout the 32- years-long life of the association jointly created by Greek seafarers and ship owners. Meanwhile, HELMEPA’s latest informative campaign has completed in the city of Chalkis, on the island of Evia, the final stop of a three-year tour to 12 Greek cities with the support of Lloyd’s Register Foundation. The programme’s Marine Environment, Shipping and Sciences Exhibition was visited by tens of thousands of students from primary schools around Greece when the campaign visited for an average 10-day stay. As has been the case in each city along the route of the campaign, a study of the level of student environmental awareness was conducted. The results of this investigation from all the 12 cities visited, together with other significant results, will be published by HELMEPA in July.

Posidonia • Stand 2.201

Move Forward with Confidence

KVH teams up with AWT Satcoms provider KVH, at stand 1.218, has announced it is teaming up with American firm Applied Weather Technology, developer of highly advanced weather-routing and voyage-optimisation technology for vessels, to offer WEATHERlink, a high-resolution weather and ocean data service. The service, using KVH’s IPMobileCast multicasting technology, transmits up-to-date weather routing information including forecasts with wind, wave, visibility, and currents with tidal stream data, updated up to four times per day, via AWT’s BonVoyage System 7 (BVS 7). KVH will also furnish ships at sea with AWT’s detailed port vicinity forecasts, rogue wave forecasts and pirate attack information. “Voyage planning and optimisation are of paramount importance for mariners’ safety and also to meet new Marpol regulations that limit greenhouse gas emissions from ships,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH ceo. “Due to these new regulations, shipping companies

are facing new challenges, both with requirements to travel at slower speeds to reduce emissions, and with requirements for use of high-cost bunker in many coastal regions. “AWT’s weather data and voyage planning services affordably delivered with IP-MobileCast will be of great value to help ship officers optimise voyage plans.” “IP-MobileCast’s WEATHERlink gives customers the autonomy to make informed decisions at sea, to optimise passage planning, and to take the ship’s current operating factors into consideration,” says Richard Brown, AWT vp of products and services. “We’re enabling BVS 7 to automatically open incoming weather data files in the background so they’re ready to go and the user can get to work immediately. Not only will we use IP-MobileCast to deliver wind, sea state, and currents with tidal stream data, we’ll also use it for future BVS software versions.” WEATHERlink is set to become commercially available by September.

Wärtsilä banking on LNG As European operators stare down the barrels of both the European Sulphur directive and IMO Tier III NOx emissions reguations, LNG becomes increasingly attractive. Although it was clear that with oil prices soaring, shipowners would eventually have to make the switch from Heavy Fuel Oil to Liquefied Natural Gas, EU and IMO member states have demonstrated to shipping that they are tired of waiting. Unfortunately, how LNG bunkering is going to be implemented so quickly is anybody’s guess. But engine manufacturers are pressing on, racing to provide new multi-fuel engines which will enable newly-built ships to make the switch between HFO and LNG whenever they like. Enter Wärtsilä, which will be hosting a programme at its stand, 3.102, addressing this changeover. Entitled “Efficiency and Gas”, beginning at midday and finishing at 12:40, both

today and tomorrow, the programme will deal with the company’s solutions for LNG-powered shipping. As well as demonstrating Wärtsilä’s newest 46DF four-stroke engine for LNG carriers, the programme will also demonstrate the company’s range of two-stroke engines, launched this year, which are capable of operating on both ordinary HFO and LNG. The devices’ extremely low operating pressure, limited to below 10 bar, are designed to save owner capital expenditure by 20%. Crucially, however, the new engines are capable of compliance with IMO Tier III emissions regulations – which specify no more than 1.96g of NOx per KWh of power produced – when running on LNG, compared to Tier II compliance on liquid fuel. The specifications will allow shipowners to transfer quickly between liquid and gas fuel when entering Emission Control Areas (ECAs).

Bahri prepares to absorb Vela International fleet Visitors to stand 3.505 in hall 3 will be greeted by Saleh Al-Jasser, ceo of Bahri, the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia. Originating from humble beginnings, with just four multipurpose vessels when it began in 1979, Bahri has become one of the biggest shipping conglomerates in the world, with a fleet of 52 vessels carrying crude oil, chemical products, general cargo and dry-bulk cargo. Diversifying into the Oil & Gas sector in 1992 with the commissioning of a fleet of five VLCCs, Bahri today owns and operates 17 such vessels, making the company one of the top VLCC owners in the world.

In 2012, Bahri started preparations to absorb Saudi Saleh Al-Jasser Aramco’s shipping CEO arm, Vela International Marine, along with its fleet of 15 VLCCs and five product tankers. In May this year, the company elected to increase its capital from SAR 3,150,000,000 ($841m) to SAR 3,937,500,000 for the purpose. Meanwhile, the company’s Oil & Gas division has now separated into Bahri Oil, which deals with the transportation of crude as well as refined petroleum products, and Bahri Gas & Offshore Services which ships gas and services the offshore industry.

ASRY boosts stable of onsite specialist contractors Arab Shipbuilding & Repair Yard (ASRY), has recently seen several global specialist contractors, including ABB, Solas Marine Services Group, and Seven Seas, increase their investment at the shipyard to provide more substantial services to ship and rig owners, over the course of 2014. The move is a part of Project Jupiter, an initiative launched by ASRY (stand 2.119) to make it the leader in onsite specialist contractors in the Middle East. Nils Kristian Berge, ASRY ceo said: “This new initiative will give ASRY the highest quality mix of Onsite Specialist Contractors in the Middle East to ensure any global owners’ needs are catered for specifically and efficiently. By being able to offer the comprehensive range of specialist services on site, there is less need for owners to bring specialised engineers. We’ve seen important names like ABB, Solas, and Seven Seas open new or bigger workshops at the yard, with several more on the way. By the end of Project Jupiter, ASRY will be a ‘onestop-shop’ for owners, due to being thePleader in onsite specialist

contractors in the Middle East.’ ASRY already accommodates 33 specialist contractors, including leading names such as Alfa Lavel, Wartsila, Blohm+Voss, Harris PYE and Goltens and as Project Jupiter continues, 2014 will see several more global players take a permanent and significant presence in the yard. New agreements are imminent with more reputed OEMs, says ASRY. In the first quarter, ABB Industries opened their workshop in ASRY to provide onsite international factory warranties to all service jobs done at ASRY, including dedicated machines and engineers at a workstation within the shipyard, and access to their worldwide service network. Solas signed an agreement which will see a 2,000sq mtr service centre for life boats, life rafts and fire fighting & life saving appliances in ASRY, Seven Seas’ new $800,000 facility has two workshops, one for metal fabrication, producing HVAC and architectural items and another shop for carpentry, building high quality furniture and architectural items, predominantly for offshore solutions.

Danaos takes shipping into new information exchange era Just days before Posidonia opened Danaos Management Consultants announced the launching of the ‘Danaos Platform’, the first professional and social business network for the global maritime industry, fully compatible with the e-Maritime framework. As will be explained to those who visit Danaos (stand 2.205) during the exhibition, the Danaos Platform enables all maritime stakeholders to interact in a totally secure manner through a versatile and comprehensive informational platform. In the context of the EMAR project, which aims to facilitate information exchange among various stakeholders in the European and global maritime industry through the establishment of an upgraded information management infrastructure, the Danaos Platform enables members to integrate their existing systems with their clients, suppliers, partners and associates in order to automate their processes from start to finish.

Objective of EMAR is to empower the European maritime sector in offering efficient quality shipping services fully integrated in the overall European transport system over an upgraded connectivity infrastructure. The project is funded by the EU and Danaos is among the 27 consortium partners cooperating to realise this initiative. Piraeus-based Danaos has developed the platform to promote collaboration amongst shipping companies; to enable integration between the various in-house systems that shipping companies currently use; to link their business activities with their business partners and third parties, live, through an active shipping directory and to network professionally via messages, forum postings and conferencing. The use of the platform is free for its members. Dimitris Theodosiou, the ceo of Danaos Management Consultants said: “Information technology has made a dramatic change bringing the planet closer together through intelligent

MAN D&T “Ready” for IMO Tier III MAN Diesel & Turbo has a full salvo of ME-GI dual-fuel engines to bring to bear at stand 2.101. Developments in dual-fuel technologies recently prompted the boast that it is “ready” for IMO’s Tier III legislation, by Dr Stephan Timmermann, executive board member responsible for marine systems and after sales. “We have the technologies in place to support our customers for this new era of environmentally efficient shipping,” said Timmerman. “I am pleased that the adoption of the IMO regulations will save us from mushrooming national regulations. Now we have a clear set of rules.” Meanwhile the company has also announced success with its Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technologies,

networks, enabling face-to-face communications and business-tobusiness transactions. The new Danaos Platform capitalises on both concepts. It implements professional conferencing using the Microsoft Lync product, and also enables the participating companies to complete business transactions without depositing corporate information on intermediary portals. “Capitalizing on our existing 600+ companies client base and our 28-year established leadership role in the field of maritime information technology, and combining the Danaos Platform and Danaos Web Enterprise software suite, Danaos offers customers the opportunity to choose the right mix of cloud-based or in-house solutions, for maximum benefit.” Danaos has entered into a strategic partnership with Capital Link to further enhance the platform by giving members the option of enhanced branding and public relations services optimising their presence and use of the Danaos platform for business.

Nicolas Bornozis, Nicolas Bornozis president of Capital Link said: “We believe the Danaos Platform will revolutionise and optimise the communication and business exchange between the various stakeholders in the global shipping industry.” “Capital Link is particularly excited to partner with Danaos and offer the platform members value added services that will enable them to enhance their visibility, branding and benefit from their platform membership.” Theodosiou added: "I am glad we have partnered with Capital Link, the leader in PR for the shipping industry. Capital Link, having a better understanding of what services the platform can offer, will not only promote the branding and the advertisement of the platform members, but can also assist them to combine the relative platform services to optimise their use and benefit from the platform”.

BIMCO previews new services Giles Noakes

developed with the help of Alfa Laval (stand 2.411), which can “meet Tier III NOx limits without ever resorting to Liquefied Natural Gas”. Operating in conjunction with Alfa Laval’s PureNOx wet scrubber systems, EGR is integrated into the engine, preventing NOx formation at the combustion stage - unlike Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), which uses a catalyst to scrub NOx after the fact. The technology has seen 3500 hours of operation on board the Alexander Maersk and Maersk Cardiff. “No other vessel has EGR installed and operating reliably at Tier III,” says Alfa Laval business manager of Water Treatment Exhaust Gas Emissions, Kristina Effler. “Moreover, it has been possible to demonstrate substantial fuel savings at Tier II.”

Visitors to BIMCO’s stand 1.503 will be offered a sneak preview of one of the latest developments in the association’s range of industryleading tools on shipping documents, prior to its launch later in the year. Idea•2 now includes the muchanticipated ability for multiple parties to share the editing process for a contract within their trusted partners. The latest version will also allow users to specify a single document to share with a specific person at another company if they wish, rather than company-wide. Meanwhile, BIMCO recently confirmed its first private maritime security company (PMSC) member, with numbers set to grow rapidly. A requirement for PMSCs to become Associate Members of BIMCO is the implementation of the ISO PAS 28007, as BIMCO believe strongly there should be one common standard of high quality for maritime security that

ensures the safety and security of members’ crews, vessels and cargo. Giles Noakes, BIMCO’s chief maritime security officer, will run a series of short ISO PAS 28007 Presentations at Posidonia specifically for Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSCs) based in Greece and other PMSCs based elsewhere but in the region. They will be run from the BIMCO stand twice daily at 14:00 and 17:00 on June 3 and 4 and will take about 35 minutes with 25 minutes for Q&A. Noakes said: “Any PMSC operating in the region who wants to acquire both the certification and continue to market competitively should attend this presentation. They will be able to find out why it is so important that there is one common standard and why BIMCO and how this will contribute to the safety and security of crews, vessels and cargo.” Interested shipowners and managers are also welcome.

There’s more to sport than winning The 2nd Posidonia Golf Tournament for players of the shipping community attracted 96 golfers who teed off June 1 under cloudy skies at the greens of the Athens Golf Course, in the waterfront Athens suburb of Glyfada. The 18-hole Shotgun format tournament stimulated competition amongst the 24 teams. Nikolas Martinos of Thenamaris said: "A game of golf provides the perfect circumstances for the creation of meaningful networking opportunities between like-minded professionals and we are delighted for the success of the 2014 Posidonia Golf Tournament." The foursome representing Maersk Broker of Jimmy Olesen, Thomas Hove, Richard Liu and Thomas Bertramsen pipped Ariston Navigation’s Michael Say, Evangelos Bardis, George Kyvernitis and Harilaos Papadopoulos (above). Meanwhile, some 210 players from 28 companies were sweating it out on the Georgios Karaiskakis turf as they vied for the prestigious trophy that goes to the winner of the 5-a-side Posidonia Shipsoccer Tournment.  Pantelis Pittas of Eurobulk said: “This is our third time here and this

event is a great opportunity for companies to socialise have fun and exercise, all at the same time.” While a vociferous group of 120 Egyptian supporters of the Arab Academy for Science and Technology

and Maritime Transport were just having fun supporting their team, those playing for the Baltic Exchange (below) enjoyed picking up the trophy, beating PWC in the final. Diamantis Pateras finished third.
