New Designs for Isles of Scilly Steamship

BMT introduced new passenger and cargo vessel designs to replace older tonnage in the Isles of Scilly Steamship Compa- ny ? eet. Designed to replace the 44-year-old Scillonian III, a new 72-m Scillonian IV will be designed to carry 600 passen- gers over three decks @ 18 knots, with anti-roll ? ns; increased cargo capacity with the ability to carry chilled and frozen goods; and a hybrid propulsion system to reduce emissions.

BMT also unveiled a 45-m dedicated cargo ship to replace the Gry Maritha, designed to sail @ 12 knots, with a 50% increase in cargo capacity and will have a reduced fuel con- sumption of 55%.

Up next will be discussions with shipyards on potential build programs. International shipbroker Blair Reid, which special- izes in the sale and procurement of new ferries, is currently in contact with 32 shipyards across the U.K., Europe and the Far

East to acquire Expressions of Interest and to identify poten- tial build slots and build cost.

Moose Boats Delivers Fireboat

Moose Boats delivered a new ? reboat to the Rochester, NY

Fire Department. The M2-38, dubbed “Marine 1” is the ? rst

Moose in the Great Lakes, and is ? tted with a roof monitor, a cockpit monitor, a 5-in. large diameter hose Storz discharge, and the ability to pump over 1,500 gpm.The navigation and electronics suite is comprised of three multifunction naviga- tion screens, radar, 3D side scan sonar, AIS, VHF radios, a radio direction ? nder and a thermal imaging camera. A heavy- duty push knee enables the M2-38 to come in contact with

Keel Laid for PCTC LNG/Battery Hybrid

Construction of the third in a series of newbuild LNG bat- tery hybrid PCTCs for United European Car Carriers (UECC) reached a milestone with keel-laying at Shanghai’s Jiangnan

Shipyard of hull H2665. This is the third of three ordered, with the ? rst newbuild due for delivery later this year after being launched at the yard last month. With an overall length of 169 meters, a width of 28 meters and a car carrying ca- pacity of 3,600 units on 10 cargo decks, the new vessels are highly ? exible, enabling them to accommodate a wide range of high & heavy and breakbulk cargoes, in addition to cars and trucks.Battery power will improve operational ef? ciency and further reduce emissions through peak shaving, in addition to handling partial accommodation load and driving auxiliary equipment. This will enable them to recharge batteries while at sea using a shaft generator in order to use battery power for maneuvering in ports in line with port requirements to cut emissions. The use of LNG will reduce emissions by around 25% as the fuel emits zero SOx and negligible amounts of
