wallenius develop wind ship

A consortium, consisting of Wallenius Marine, Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology and shipping consultancy firm SSPA, is developing a 200m-long winddriven car carrier in cooperation with the Swedish Transport Administration, which is co-financing the project. Wallenius Marine architect Carl-Johan Soder said the vessel, which will be equipped with four 80m-tall wing sails as well as a fuel-powered engine for operation in port and when wind conditions are weak, will cross the North Atlantic at an average speed of ten knots while emitting 90 per cent less carbon dioxide than a traditional car carrier of similar size. The wind-powered ro-ro vessel is expected to be commercially operational and in service by late 2024 or early 2025.…

boiler explosion and fire

On 3 September a boiler exploded in the main engine room of the large crude carrier New Diamond about 50 nautical miles off Sri Lanka, killing one of the crew of 23. The resulting fire burned through the deckhouse, but was kept from igniting the cargo of 270,000 tonnes of crude by firefighting vessels that arrived on the scene, although some bunker fuel was spilled. The damaged tanker, owned by Porto Emporios Shipping of Greece, was built as Ikomasan in 2000 and had previously traded as Diamond Warrior. The 20-year-old ship was under charter to the Indian Oil Corporation at the time of the incident and was transporting crude from Kuwait to Paradip in eastern India. More than a dozen ships from India and Sri Lanka assisted in the fire fighting…

olsen veterans leave the fleet

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has released details of the sale of Black Watch and Boudicca. The two veteran vessels have been sold to Turkish company Miray for use as accommodation vessels. Miray reports on its website that it provides accommodation ships for staff in shipyards working on conversions and newbuilds. Miray also operates the 900-passenger cruise ship Gemini in the Turkish market. However, Turkey is quite a popular destination for unwanted cruise ships at present, so perhaps their new role will be short. There are several cruise ships on the beach at Aliaga that it would have been more logical to use as accommodation ships, if there was a need. Black Watch and Boudicca were two of the three original Royal Viking Line sisters, delivered to the new company as Royal Viking…

stormy finale for dover’s last turbine steamer

Caledonian Princess entered service with a smart black hull and a black-topped buff funnel, with the Caledonian Steam Packet’s red lions rampant on either side. But these had long given way to Sealink’s monastral blue hull, with funnel colours of red and black, by the time the vessel spent her final operational summer at Dover in 1981 on what were the shortest routes she had ever served. The daily routine brought a morning crossing to Calais and back, followed by an afternoon visit to Boulogne, writes Russell Plummer. The 21-year-old car ferry’s versatility was put to the test early in her time at Dover, when June 1981 brought three spells deputising on other routes. First Horsa (1972/5,590gt) had to be taken out for two days of engine repairs, with Caledonian Princess…
