Albion Marine Solutions completed the BWTS Commissioning during vessel transit through Panama Canal

Albion is proud to be the North American service company that provides BWTS instrument calibration and tests of ballast water samples following both IMO and USA VGP requirements. Recently, we completed the BWTS Commissioning for a vessel at Panama Canal. Commissioning was done during vessel transit through the Panama Canal. The Commissioning and class acceptance has been completed within the 20 hours timeline.


The primary goal of commissioning testing is to show that the system's primary treatment methods can function as they were installed, rather than to validate the Type Approval. Furthermore, it is based on the BWM.2/Circ.70 Guidance for Ballast Water Management System Commissioning Testing, and it will be required by the Vessel's Flag State or Recognized Organizations (ROs) working on their behalf. The entire Albion team is already jam-packed right now, with commissioning, troubleshooting BWTS, scrubbers, dry docking, and vessel disposals.

EEXI - Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index : Don't wait prepare now for EEXI

The IMO amended MARPOL Annex VI at MEPC 76 on June 17, 2021, establishing regulations 23 and 25 – the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) – and regulation 28 – the mandate to minimize Operational Carbon Intensity through the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII). The date of implementation will be November 1, 2022.

 

Impacted vessels must comply by their next annual, intermediate, or renewal survey for the International Air Pollution Prevention Certificate (IAPPC) or the first survey before the ship enters service for the International Energy Efficiency Certificate (IEEC) to be issued, whichever comes first on or after January 1, 2023. Your immediate attention should be on finishing your EEXI and improvement calculations if you have not done so already.

Some shipowners have yet to start the process and may not be completely aware of the implications for their fleet or the reasons for acting swiftly. There is a chance to get ahead of the game and plan for a sustainable future. Short time is left now to achieve compliance. You may need to take several measures. If you do not act soon, your ships may be unable to trade overseas. For more information to comply contact Albion Marine team directly or email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Emerging technologies: New Electric and Hybrid propulsion systems

To address the effects of global warming, the marine and offshore industries are exploring for alternative fuels to reduce carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions and placing a greater emphasis on long-term solutions to develop cleaner technologies. Albion Marine Solutions Ltd. is proud to be on the front lines of developing new electric and hybrid propulsion technologies for the existing fleets and new builds to assist operators in implementing fuel-saving and energy-efficient solutions. 

 

 

It has already been a long time before Albion Marine solutions had completed the concept designs of an actual zero-emission cable ferry- Albion Zero and Albion Hybrid Patrol Vessel. According to Albion Marine Solutions Director Mr. Sergiy Yakovenko, "It's an engineering concept created for a river crossing in remote Northern areas with little or no infrastructure. Because of its modular design, may use it for a wide range of ferry designs."

The "Albion Zero" is a new kind of ferry that can run in an electrically driven cable mechanism powered by batteries. These batteries are charged with available renewable energy that is generated from the river stream, solar energy. On the other hand, Albion Hybrid Patrol Vessel specifically for the Coast guard. The primary benefit of this vessel is that it can run with dual-energy sources between electric and diesel engines, adequate for port inspections and finally help improve fuel efficiency.
