Emerging Ballast Water Management Systems

   The present excellent collection of documents has been made of the selected papers and presentations of the  IMO-WMU Global R&D Forum relating to the Emerging BWM Systems held some years back in Sweden. Nowadays, the great demand is there within the maritime industry for the development of the environmentally-friendly and also efficient BWM systems. Taking this demand into account, the today's technological community has been dealing with the active developing of the various BWM systems to be able to cater to the emerging market of the ballast water technology, The systems in question have to undergo various applicable approval processes including the testing as per the  established testing procedures, in compliance with the requirements of the BWM Convention plus the Guidelines. While several systems are currently under development or approval process, testing among the BWM system TF, i.e. test facilities worldwide shows the gaps in the harmonization and methodology. This has significantly contributed to the confusion and lack of confidence among the people involved in the development of the subject systems, and also among the ship owners. Therefore, it is really imperative that the end-users of the BWM systems have enough confidence that consistent and reliable testing methodologies are applied.

Fate and Effects of Oil in Marine Ecosystems
   The publication contains the proceedings of the international conference dedicated to the marine pollution by oil. Man has always influenced the surrounding environment, but at the very beginning the traces of people's activities were almost not noticeable and the effects of those activities to the equilibrium of the eco-system were not serious at all. As soon as the human started to use the tools, people were able ti influence their surroundings in much more drastical way, and that is actually the time when the things started to go wrong. The environment condition we have today is the result of people's activities. The first section of the title is dealing with chemical/physical behavior of oil in marine environment and with the associated biological processes, while the second chapter addresses the effects of oil and its compounds on the eco-systems, populations and species. The third section of the volume provides readers with the results obtained during the monitoring of both biotic and abiotic compartments of marine eco-systems. And the fourth section is dedicated to the several specific cases of the risk management and analysis on the basis on existing scientific technical knowledge. Definitely recommended title for those willing to be up-to-date with all happenings in the field of marine science.

Robotic Sailing 2014 - Proceedings of the 7th International Robotic Sailing Conference

   The publication contains the proceedings of the Seventh Conference on Robotic Sailing which was held in 2014; the volume includes numerous interesting works presented by the researchers from all around the world relating to both future and current challenges in the development of the various autonomous sailboats. The autonomous sailing robots are the boats that only use the wind force for propelling with neither any actual human assistance nor any sort of remote control. The type of sailing in question offers the great potential of long-term and range autonomous solar, wind- and wave-propelled devices that are also carbon neutral. Such devices would greatly contribute to the monitoring of various important data, for example ecological, hydrographic, environmental conditions and other. Moreover, such robots could also be utilized for monitoring the traffic, assistance, surveillance, security plus rescue purposes. However, they are still very dependent on the wind and sea conditions that are subject to the rapid change, and this is what in fact presents a serious challenge for the route planning, control of stability and avoidance of possible collisions. We recommend to treat the book as a definitely interesting and also quite informative publication for every robotic sailing enthusiast willing to be kept updated with the very latest technological developments and advances in the subject field.

Robotic Sailing 2015 - Proceedings of the 8th International Robotic Sailing Conference

   People have always tried to utilize the forces of wind and water to generate the power. The sailing ships and boats of the past used the wind  for propulsion. You should agree that it was quite untrivial task to maneuver a sailing vessel to some destination point under frequently and seriously changing weather, sea and wind conditions. Moreover, seamen always have to sail through very narrow passageways and through areas with dense traffic. The proceedings of the Eighth Robotic Sailing conference contained in the present publication, have been divided into three major parts. The opening part of the book has been devoted mostly to different technical hardware solutions newly developed for the autonomous sailing platforms - the design and construction, test sailing have been addressed, together with the application of various devices. The second part is intended to introduce some new ideas relating to the mission planning, localization and avoidance of obstacles. Finally, the last part of this volume is dealing with the design and modeling of controllers and sensors, including their evaluation. Note that some of the papers contained in this collection may treat more than one of the aspects mentioned above.

ICSOT 2006 - Design, Construction and Operation of Natural Gas Carriers and Offshore Systems

   The trend of current LNG newbuildings is that the cargo capacity keeps increasing every year. The shipyard proposal keeps adding the numbers of tank capacity until there is no limit to the membrane LNG carriers. Prior to this phenomenon, the Large LNG Carriers standard designs are limited to 130,000 cbm to 138,000 cbm In 2004, Qatar Gas selected two designs proposed by Hyundai Heavy Industries/Samsung Heavy Industries Consortium and Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering to build larger than 200.000cbm capacity LNG Carriers. The contract of the Very Large LNGCs clearly showed that there is no limitation of what is coming to the industry. The construction of the LNG newbuildings around the world will increase until the Qatar Gas acquisitions of LNG ships settled sometime in 2012. Previously in the past, any LNG newbuildings will be based on a fixed charter contract between the Charterer and the Owner. However, recent trend of the LNG newbuildings is now moving towards the spot charter market and speculative in nature making the newbuildings slots for LNG very tight among the LNGC capable shipyards. In order to become pro-active player in the LNG transportation market and promoting high quality standards in LNGC newbuildings, MISC would like to share the experience gained during supervision of newbuildings of Large LNGC. MISC experience in LNGC newbuildings is further augment by the fad thai most of the newbuildings ordered in the recent years are based the membrane-type insulation rather than other type of insulation like the Moss-type or independent tank-type. In 2004 alone, the big three shipyards in Korea won almost 90 percent of the LNG tanker contracts awarded...
