Wärtsilä’s control system for Harvey Gulf LNG fueling facility

first_imgThe contract for the control system for a shore-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling facility in Port Fourchon, Louisiana, USA, has been awarded to Wärtsilä.The facility is owned by Harvey Gulf International Marine, a major owner-operator of offshore supply and specialty vessels headquartered in New Orleans. It will be used to supply fuel to Harvey Gulf’s fleet of LNG powered platform supply vessels (PSV), and will be the first source of LNG fuel in the Gulf of Mexico. The order was placed in July, 2014.The Wärtsilä scope of supply comprises the control cabinets, the PLCs, computers, software programming and service commissioning. It is designed to enable the entire fuelling process to be fully controlled from the control room onboard the HARVEY ENERGY class platform supply vessels, thus making the fuelling far more efficient and safer than would be otherwise possible. Delivery is scheduled for November, 2014.“The Harvey Gulf PSVs are to be fitted with the Wärtsilä LNGPac gas control system, so it was natural that the same basic technology should also be used for the shore fuelling facility. There is a growing need for an LNG fuelling infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico, so this represents an important step forward. Both Harvey Gulf and Wärtsilä are fully committed to promoting environmentally sustainable operations, and by facilitating the use of LNG as a marine fuel, this philosophy is clearly enhanced,” says Joe Amyot, Sales Director, Wärtsilä Ship Power.The new fuelling facility will enable the refuelling of offshore supply vessels powered by LNG. It will also have the capability to provide a fuel source for LNG fuelled cargo ships operating in the Houston – New Orleans region.Harvey Gulf currently has six LNG fuelled PSVs under construction, all of which will be powered by Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel engines. The vessels will also have various other Wärtsilä equipment onboard, including the Wärtsilä LNGPac gas storage and supply system. The company, additionally, has two diesel-electric construction vessels in production equipped with Wärtsilä 32 engines and other Wärtsilä solutions.Related: Harvey Gulf begins construction of first LNG marine fueling facility in USA [mappress]Press Release, August 18, 2014last_img read more

Beyel dismantles space crane

first_imgBeyel Brothers has a long history with the Kennedy Space Centre, installing an overhead crane in the late 1970s in the shuttle vehicle assembly building (VAB) – a crane that Beyel has disassembled using the newly acquired 350-tonne lifting capacity AC 350/6. Beyel Brothers mobilised the AC 350/6 crane, boom and 116.7 tonnes of counterweight on seven trucks and quickly made way to the VAB project site.  Once inside the VAB, the AC 350/6 was setup and ready for deployment within four hours. “The boom pinning system made its easier to telescope the boom,” said Beyel, adding that further time was saved due to the AC 350/6’s self-rigging counterweight system. Crews worked with 40.7 m of main boom to remove the overhead crane from the 160 m tall building, the largest single story building in the world. A critical pick was to lift a 45.4 tonne drum and cable trolley assembly. Working at a 12.2 m to 13.7 m radius the AC 350/6 was able to safely lower the assembly to the VAB floor. NASA employs stringent lifting safety standards that required the crane to stay within 75 percent of its load chart; the AC350/6 was able to perform all the lifts without the need for a Sideways Superlift system. “Being able to do the lift without the Superlift structure saved us an extra truck load, four to five hours of setup and two extra laborers,” commented Beyel. “Not only did it save us time but it also saved us money.” The crane crew also had to uninstall two massive girders weighing 22 tonnes and 18.1 tonnes respectively. The crane was able to safely lower the 24.4 m long beams to the floor without incident. Four further picks were completed using the AC 350/6 before it was de-rigged and moved out. The entire project was completed in only six days. Beyel Brothers added that the company looks forward to performing tandem lifts using its AC 350/6 and a new 250-tonne capacity class Terex AC250-1 crane, which was also acquired recently by the firm. www.beyel.comwww.terex.comlast_img read more

No use quibbling over what could have been: Windies captain Brathwaite

first_imgOn Sunday, West Indies Captain Carlos Brathwaite refused to be drawn into speculation over what could have been, after West Indies lost the third Twenty20 International against India  in a dramatic last-ball finish.India secured 3-0 sweepWith scores tied on 181 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, India,  Manish Pandey (four not out) and Dinesh Karthik ( 0 not out) scrambled a single off the final delivery of the contest, to seal a six-wicket win for India and a 3-0 series clean sweep.“You can’t look back at it [and think] if one of the fours had gone for one, we would have won by three runs,” Brathwaite said afterwards.“So you can’t look at every single ball and think ‘this one decision or that one decision’ cost us the game. I think you have to give credit to Shikhar (Dhawan) and Rishabh (Pant) who played very, very well and also give credit to my group of guys who started well with the ball.“[With] the partnership [between Dhawan and Pant] it seemed as if the game was kind of taken away from us and we stuck in, we kept our belief and we played valiantly to the end.Won’t niggle “It was a good game of cricket and we don’t want to ruin the spectacle and entertainment … by niggling at a one call here and a one call there.”West Indies made 181 for three off their 20 overs behind Nicholas Pooran’s unbeaten 53 and Darren Bravo’s 43 not out – the pair adding 87 in an unbroken fourth wicket stand.In reply, India were stumbling at 45 for two in the sixth before Dhawan punched a career-best 92 and Pant, 58, in a 130-run partnership for the third wicket, which laid the foundation for victory.However, the game was still close with five required from the final over bowled by left-arm spinner Fabian Allen, but West Indies just found themselves outplayed in the end.Brathwaite said although the team had been unable to deliver a win for the Caribbean fans, he felt as though the fight displayed in the performance counted for something.“We said we wanted to leave them with a smile on their faces,” said the all-rounder.“Obviously we didn’t get the result we wanted but the effort and the fight and the dedication and the belief that we showed down to the last ball, after the position that the partnership with Shikhar and Rishabh, put [India] in, I think will put a smile on their faces.“Eventually we want to be turning those into the wins but for now we’re happy with the effort and the belief.”He continued: “We had good, solid performances with the bat. Obviously Nicholas will get the plaudits because he raised his bat but I think credit must go to the opening pair (Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer) as well who set us up with 50 in the first six overs, so we had a lot of positives today with the bat and it is about replicating it game in, game out.”last_img read more
