$197 million invested for Aurus limousine of the President of the Russian Federation
President Putin's New Limo President Putin, inaugurated for a fourth term on Monday, drove the estimated 200m distance from the Kremlin's Senate building to Andreevsky Hall in the brand new Russian-made extended wheelbase limo. Project Kortezh, officially called the 'Unified Modular Platform', envisions the creation of a family of luxury vehicles, including a limousine, sedan and minivan, based on a single platform. The vehicles, developed by the NAMI State Research Center in cooperation with automotive holding company Sollers, are expected to be marketed under the 'Aurus' brand (a blend of the Latin word Aurum, i.e. 'Gold' – and Rus, Russia). The cars have been manufactured in the framework of the project called "Cortege," on the basis of a single modular platform (EMP) developed by the State Research Center NAMI in Moscow. As a result of the thorough work, a new automotive concept has been formed. It is expected to be used for manufacturing different types of cars whose target audience would be not only prominent political figures, but ordinary people as well. The project's proclaimed strategic task is to bring a new generation of Russian cars to the market, based on the most advanced technologies in the automotive industry. The project not only contributes to the development of domestic car production, but also creates new jobs, the official concluded. source: https://sputniknews.com/russia/201805071064214101-kortezh-unveiled-at-presidential-inauguration/

World’s largest solar energy Ship-DRIVE GREEN HIGHWAY
DRIVE GREEN HIGHWAY-Vehicles Carrier Tokyo, February 9th, 2016 K Line’s new ship, a car-carrier named “Drive Green Highway”, integrates advanced energy-efficient technologies and design improvements to reduce its impact on the environment. It is the first of 8 similar vessels that will be built under K Line’s “Drive Green Project”, and was launched today at a ceremony in Nagasu Port in Kumamoto, a coastal city in southern Japan. Drive Green Highway uses its sheer size to improve its emissions efficiency. The vessel is 200 meters long, 37.5 meters wide and uses an improved design that enables it to carry up to 7,500 passenger vehicles at once. Drive Green Highway integrates among the world’s most advanced environmentally friendly and energy-saving technologies. These range from its greenhouse gas suppression systems in its engines to Solar Frontier’s CIS solar panels on its decks. Combing the advantages of its design and technology improvements, Drive Green Highway will emit 25% less carbon-dioxide (CO2), 50% less nitrogen-oxide (NOx) and 90% less sulfur-oxide (SOx) per vehicle transported. Contributing to Drive Green Highway’s energy efficiency is one of the largest solar energy systems on any ship in the world. More than 900 of Solar Frontier’s CIS solar panels have been installed on Green Drive Highway’s top deck, totaling 150 kilowatt-peak of electricity generating capacity. The electricity generated by these solar panels will be used to power all LED lighting on the vehicle decks. Their strength in hot environments and salt-mist environments, such as at sea, will support Drive Green Highway as it ships cargo around the world.

Indonesian Navy - KRI Bung Tomo 357
Bung Tomo-class corvette From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Bung Tomo class is a class of three Indonesian corvette offshore patrol vessels. They were originally built for the Royal Brunei Navy and named Nakhoda Ragam class corvettes but were ultimately bought by Indonesia and renamed.[5] The class is named after Bung Tomo, a noted leader of Indonesia's independence movement. Background[edit] The three vessels were built by BAE Systems Marine (now BAE Systems Maritime - Naval Ships). The contract was awarded to GEC-Marconi in 1995 and the ships, a variant of the F2000 design, were launched in January 2001, June 2001 and June 2002 at the then BAE Systems Marine yard at Scotstoun, Glasgow. The customer refused to accept the vessels and the contract dispute became the subject of arbitration. When the dispute was settled in favour of BAE Systems, the vessels were handed over to Royal Brunei Technical Services in June 2007.[6] In 2007, Brunei contracted the German Lürssen ship yard to find a new customer for the three ships; in November 2012, it was announced that Indonesia had signed a memorandum of understanding with Britain to acquire the vessels for one-fifth of the original unit cost.[7] The ships are now in service with the Indonesian Navy. The ships were originally armed with MBDA Exocet Block II anti-ship missiles and MBDA Seawolf air defence missiles. The main gun is an Oto Melara 76mm; the ship also carries two torpedo tubes, two 30mm remote weapon stations and has a landing spot for a helicopter.[8] Operational history[edit] In late December 2014, KRI Bung Tomo was involved in search and recovery operations of the Indonesia AirAsia Flight 8501 which crashed off the Java Sea between the islands of Belitung and Borneo.[9] Later in early January 2015, the controversial KRI Usman Harun was being deployed to search for the black boxes as the ship was equipped with the Thales Underwater Systems TMS 4130C1 hull-mounted sonar.[10][11] Ships of the class[edit] KRI Bung Tomo is named after Sutomo, the leader of Indonesian guerrillas during the Battle of Surabaya. The naming of KRI John Lie memorializes a National Hero of Indonesia who was one of the first high ranking navy commanders during the Indonesian National Revolution. The naming of KRI Usman-Harun memorializes Harun Said and Osman Hj Mohd Ali, who were executed by Singapore after the MacDonald House bombing, creating a controversy between the two nations.[12] Number Pennant Number Name Builder Launched Commissioned Status 1 357 (30) KRI Bung Tomo (ex KDB Jerambak) BAE Systems Marine, Scotstoun 22 June 2002[13] 18 July 2014 [14] Commissioned 2 358 (28) KRI John Lie (ex KDB Nakhoda Ragam) BAE Systems Marine, Scotstoun 13 January 2001[15] 18 July 2014 [14] Commissioned 3 359 (29) KRI Usman-Harun (ex KDB Bendahara Sakam) BAE Systems Marine, Scotstoun 23 June 2001[16] unknown Commissioned

Russian Navy - Kashin-class destroyer- Сметливый 810
Kashin-class destroyer From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Kashin-class destroyers were a group of guided missile destroyers built for the Soviet Navy in the 1960s and early 1970s. Their Soviet designation was Project 61. As of 2007, one ship is in service with the Russian Navy, and five modified ships are in service with the Indian Navy as Rajput-class destroyers. In the Soviet Union they were officially classified as "guard ships" (storozhevoi korabl – SKR), then "large ASW ships" (BPK) or "large missile ships" (BRK), but in the rest of world they are commonly regarded as missile destroyers due to their size and armament. They were the first Soviet purpose-built anti-air warfare ships and the first to carry an ASW helicopter. The design specification was approved in 1957; the first ship was laid down in 1959 and commissioned in 1962. Much new equipment was developed for these ships, including surface-to-air missiles, radars and gas turbine engines. The gas turbines were arranged in two separate spaces and could be removed via the funnels for servicing. These were also the first Soviet ships designed to be closed down for nuclear fallout and had an operations room deep inside the ship rather than a large bridge. Six ships were modernised in the 1970s as the Project 61M or 61MP (Kashin-Mod), by being fitted with four SS-N-2C Styx anti-ship missiles, new towed-array sonar, a raised helipad and four close range AK-630 Gatling guns. The two RBU-1000 ASW rocket launchers were mounted aft, but later removed. Smetlivy was modernised (mk01090) at Mykolaiv in the early 1990s and fitted with new Kh-35 (SS-N-25 Switchblade, Harpoonski) anti-ship missiles and MNK-300 sonar. She is the only Kashin-class vessel currently active in the Russian Navy. The Rajput-class modification built for Indian Navy has the after gun turret replaced by a hangar for a helicopter, as well as SS-N-2C anti-ship missiles on the sides of the bridge.

Classification ABS A1E AMS ACCU Dockwise was formed in September 1993 by the merger of two complementary companies, Wijsmuller Transport (a division of Heerema) and Dock Express Shipping (a division of Royal Vopak), becoming the world's largest seagoing heavy transport shipping company.[1] The combined company operated from a new headquarters in Meer (Hoogstraten), Belgium. Wijsmuller brought a fleet of seven semi-submersible vessels (Mighty Servant 1, Mighty Servant 2 & Mighty Servant 3 and Super Servant 3, 4, 5, & 6) and four dock-type vessels (Dock Express 10, 11, 12, & 20).[1] In 2001 Offshore Heavy Transport ASA (OHT) joined the company, adding two heavy transport vessels, MV Black Marlin and MV Blue Marlin.[1] In November 2010, to service the emerging market for ultra-large transports, such as its Dockwise’s Type 0 heavy lift vessel, it appointed Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) of Korea as its shipbuilding yard. HHI was scheduled to deliver the vessel during the last quarter of 2012.[2][3] Type 0 was renamed the Dockwise Vanguard.

Russian Navy-Cruiser Varyag 011
Russian cruiser Varyag (1983) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Russian cruiser Varyag (Varangian), (ex-Chervona Ukraina), is the third ship of the Slava-class of guided missile cruisers built for the Soviet Navy now serving the Russian Navy. Laid down in 1979 at 61 Kommunara Shipbuilding Plant (Shipyard 445) in Nikolayev as Chervona Ukraina ("Red Ukraine"), the vessel was launched in July 1983, and commissioned 16 October 1989. The warship joined the Pacific Fleet in 1990 and was listed as having only a caretaker crew up to 2002.[1] The cruiser re-entered service with the Pacific Fleet in early 2008 after an overhaul. In 2009 Varyag led a fleet of foreign warships participating in a parade to mark the -60th anniversary of China's Navy.[2] In June 2010, Varyag, under the command of Captain Eduard Moskalenko and with the Commander Northern Fleet Combined Forces Rear-Admiral Vladimir L. Kasatonov embarked, made a port call to San Francisco. The visit, the first by a Russian navy surface combatant in 147 years, featured a plaque dedication ceremony to commemorate six Russian Imperial Navy sailors who died fighting a fire in San Francisco in 1863.[3] This visit also coincided with President Medvedev visiting Silicon Valley and he once again visited Varyag as he had in Singapore in 2009. On 19 November 2010, during a 4-day informal visit to South Korea, 24-year-old Lieutenant Ivan Yegorov reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself. According to Roman Martov, head of Russian Navy Pacific Fleet Press Service, the reason of suicide was a conflict between the lieutenant and his wife. The crewman's brother doubts that it was suicide, and told reporters that his brother had phoned him several hours before the death: "His voice was high-spirited and he boasted of gifts which he was going to bring his family". There was a police report filed, but no evidence of foul play was found.[4][5] From 8 to 11 November 2011 Varyag, accompanied by the tanker Irkut, made a port visit to Vancouver, British Columbia, to commemorate servicemen killed in armed conflicts. Varyag was escorted into Vancouver by the Royal Canadian Navy destroyer HMCS Algonquin, and Varyag's crew engaged in friendly sports matches with their Canadian counterparts from Algonquin.[6][7][8] In November 2014, Varyag led a deployment of four Russian naval vessels to international waters off Australia.[9][10] The deployment was believed to be linked to the 2014 G-20 Brisbane summit and growing tensions between the two nations.[9][11] In early January 2016, Varyag was reported to have entered the Mediterranean Sea through the Suez Canal to be deployed off Syria′s shore replacing sister ship Moskva,[12] in support of Russia's air operation in Syria that had begun in autumn 2015. The ship was named flagship of the Russian naval task force positioned in the eastern Mediterranean.

Ship traffic in Corinth Canal - Greece
Corinth Canal From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Corinth Canal (Greek: Διώρυγα της Κορίνθου, Dhioryga tis Korinthou) is a canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, thus effectively making the former peninsula an island. The builders dug the canal through the Isthmus at sea level; no locks are employed. It is 6.4 kilometres (4 mi) in length and only 21.4 metres (70 ft) wide at its base, making it impassable for most modern ships. It now has little economic importance. The canal was mooted in classical times and an abortive effort was made to build it in the 1st century AD. Construction finally got under way in 1881 but was hampered by geological and financial problems that bankrupted the original builders. It was completed in 1893 but, due to the canal's narrowness, navigational problems and periodic closures to repair landslides from its steep walls, it failed to attract the level of traffic expected by its operators. It is now used mainly for tourist traffic.

The most powerfull battlecruiser in the world.
Russian battlecruiser Pyotr Velikiy From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Russian: Пётр Великий) is the fourth Kirov-class battlecruiser of the Russian Navy. Initially named Yuri Andropov (Russian: Юрий Андропов) for Yuri Andropov, the former General Secretary of the Communist Party, the ship's name was changed after the fall of the Soviet Union. The Russian designation for the type is "heavy missile cruiser", but Western defense commentators re-invented the term "battlecruiser" to describe these; the largest surface combatant warships in the world. Pyotr Velikiy is the flagship of the Northern Fleet. Construction of the ship was heavily impacted by the economic problems before and after the fall of the Soviet Union and it was not commissioned until 1998, twelve years after work had started. By then it had been renamed Pyotr Velikiy, Russian for Peter the Great. Pyotr Velikiy has been known to carry two pennant numbers during its service; "183" and currently "099". After completing its acceptance trials in November 1996, the vessel was transferred to the Northern Fleet at Severomorsk and became the flagship of the Northern Fleet. In August 2000 Pyotr Velikiy was in the Barents Sea involved in the largest naval training exercise since the fall of the Soviet Union. The ship was to be the designated target of the Oscar-II class submarine K-141 Kursk, and was conducting evasive maneuvers when communication with Kursk was lost, the submarine apparently having suffered a catastrophic torpedo detonation with all hands lost. Pyotr Velikiy guarded the area where the submarine sank during the subsequent salvage operation in 2001. In March 2004, Russian Navy chief Admiral Vladimir Kuroyedov declared Pyotr Velikiy unfit for service due to problems with the ship's engineering maintenance.[1] On 19 April 2004, the cruiser was docked in the floating drydock PD-50 for painting of the underside of the hull, repairs and examination of the steering system. The repairs were completed later that year, and it was carrying out missions again by August.

Modern Express - Salvage & Towing - 01 Feb. 2016
Salvage Team Boards Modern Express & she is under tow The salvage team has abandoned the Modern Express for the night after an attempt to establish a tow line was unsuccessful. After reaching the bow of the car carrier, the salvors were able to attach a messenger line from a tug to the Modern Express, but the line parted due to the movement of the vessels. During the operation, one member of the salvage team suffered minor injuries. The team left the ship before nightfall. A four-man team from SMIT Salvage was able to board the heavily listing Modern Express car carrier in the Bay of Biscay in an attempt to attach a tow line to the drifting vessel.The vessel was located 150 nautical miles west of La Rochelle on Friday and drifting east at 1 knot. Weather had previously prevented the salvage team from boarding the vessel, with waves of 4 to 5 meters.The Panamanian-flagged Modern Express was transporting 3,600 ton of wood and construction equipment from Gabon, Africa to the port of Le Havre when it listed heavily in rough seas. All 22 crew members were evacuated safely by Spanish search and rescue helicopters. On scene are two tugs contracted by the ship owner, Cido Shipping, the French emergency tug Abeille Bourbon and the French Navy frigate Primauguet. The AHTS Argonaute arrived with equipment on Friday. The towing operation has been approved by French officials and could commence as soon as late Friday afternoon, officials said. A salvage team was successful in their last ditch attempt to save the adrift cargo ship Modern Express from running aground along the French coast. The ship was taken under tow Monday morning at 11:45 a.m. after a four-man team from SMIT Salvage boarded the vessel by helicopter and were able to connect a tow line. The ship is now under tow by the tug Centaurus, which is towing the vessel out to sea at a speed of 3 knots. The convoy was located 24 nautical miles from the coast as of 1:15 p.m. Weather on scene is reported to be winds of Force 4 (20 to 28 km / h) and waves of 3 to 3.5 meters. It is important to note that the Modern Express is not out of danger yet, as the tow line could break at any moment. The vessel is also still listing severely, and salvors will need to seek calmer waters before any attempt to right the ship.

Tour in Tug Boat Engine room with Voith
Voith From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Voith GmbH, which is headquartered in Germany, is a family-run multinational corporation in the mechanical engineering sector with worldwide operations. Voith Drive Technology In 1911, Voith built the fastest and widest machine of its time for reel-fed printing papers, at its plant in St. Pölten, Austria. Shortly thereafter in 1913, Friedrich Voith died, and left behind a company with 3,000 employees, and a leading position in the paper, as well as energy markets. His three sons then shared the company's management responsibilities: Walther took charge of the St. Pölten plant, Hermann managed the commercial affairs in the main facility in Heidenheim, and Hanns headed the technical department. After World War I, the three brothers decided to expand the company and to concentrate on drive technologies. By 1922, Voith had begun building transmission gear assemblies, based on its fluid-dynamics know-how gained from previous turbine projects. This turned out to be yet another breakthrough, which was achieved with the aid of Hermann Föttinger, and his research on hydrodynamic energy transfers. In that same year, the first Kaplan turbine was produced by Voith, being named for its inventor Viktor Kaplan. By 1929, the first Voith hydrodynamic couplings based on the Föttinger Principle were in use at the Herdecke pumped-storage hydropower station. Thereafter, similar transmissions for road and rail vehicles were developed. At the same time, the company became known for the hydrodynamic drives and transmissions that it supplied to industrial production facilities. In addition, Voith launched a new product, the Voith Schneider Propeller (VSP) for commercial vessels. This new marine drive could significantly improve the manoeuvrability of a ship, being invented by the Vienna engineer Ernst Schneider, and enhanced by Voith. After successful sea trials on the test boat Torqueo, in 1937, the first Voith Schneider Propellers were put into operation in the narrow canals of Venice, Italy. During the 1937 World Fair in Paris, Voith was awarded the grand prize – three times – for its exhibition of Voith Schneider Propellers and Voith turbo-transmissions. A year later, two of Paris' fire-fighting boats started operating with the new VSP system.

Yacht A
M/Y A is a luxury motor yacht designed by Philippe Starck and Martin Francis,[6][7][8] and constructed by Blohm + Voss at the HDW shipyard in Kiel, Germany.[5][9] It was commissioned in November 2004, and delivered in 2008 at a rumoured cost of US$300 million.[10][11] With a length of 119 metres (390 ft) and displacing almost 6,000 tonnes, it is one of the largest motor yachts in the world.[9][12] Named for the first initial of its owners, Andrey and Aleksandra Melnichenko, its provocative styling has polarized opinions since its launch.[13] It has evoked comparisons with submarines and stealth warships, while commentators have referred to it as the "most loved and loathed ship on the sea".[14][15] A can accommodate 14 guests in one owner's suite and six guest suites. She can also accommodate up to 37 In common with many "mega yachts", little was known about A when it was first commissioned. Builder Blohm + Voss issued a press release in December 2004 identifying the vessel as Project Sigma,[2] which was how it became most commonly known during its construction.[17] Its length was given as 118 metres (387 ft), a metre short of its final length, while conceptual designer Philippe Starck and lead naval architect Neil Wade were credited personally.[2] Starck was alleged to have taken only three and a half hours to come up with the final shape,[9] whose reverse bow and tumblehome design has drawn parallels with the Zumwalt class of stealth destroyers designed for the US Navy.[11][13][15] It was also stated in the press release that the owner of mega yacht Pelorus — Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich — was not the customer behind Sigma. Nevertheless, because Pelorus was undergoing a concurrent refit at the same shipyard, and because both projects shared the same management company, there was continued speculation that the two vessels had a common owner throughout A's construction.[15][18][19] Melnichenko was not confirmed as the true owner until after the ship was delivered in July 2008.[11][20] In interviews for Yachts International and Die Zeit magazines, Starck gave details of the vessel's most innovative features. He described it as a "stealth yacht" with a very smooth hull design, which left almost no wake at 25 knots (46 km/h; 29 mph).[21][22] Its "purity" was, he said, a reflection of its owner, a "young and brilliant mathematician".[21] (Melnichenko is a reputed math prodigy.)[13] Martin Francis, the boat's technical and naval designer, was also interviewed for Yachts International in 2008, and he too cited the boat's efficiency through the water and its small bow wake as a major innovation.[8] Francis explained that typically the shipyard will do the hull testing, but in A's case a model was built and tested in the Solent estuary early in the design process, long prior to the involvement of any builders.

MS Zuiderdam - Holland America Line
MS Zuiderdam From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia is a Vista class cruise ship owned and operated by Holland America Line (HAL). It is the lead ship of the Vista class vessels, so named for the extensive use of glass in their superstructure, and is sister to three other HAL ships, Oosterdam, Westerdam, and Noordam. The prefixes of the four ships' names represent the four directions of the compass in Dutch. The ship shares similar exterior dimensions with Carnival Cruise Lines' and Costa Cruises' Spirit Class. Cunard Line's Queen Victoria is an enlarged version of the same design, as is HAL's Signature Class. As with all Vista-class ships, Zuiderdam is equipped with a diesel-electric power plant and an Azipod propulsion system, and eighty-five percent of her staterooms have ocean views and sixty-seven percent have verandahs. Her art collection carries a Venetian theme throughout the ship; the most dazzling features figures in the time of Carnival in Venice, created by Daniel Ogier.

MS Dunnottar Castle or MS Princesa Victoria 1936-2004
MS Dunnottar Castle From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The MS Dunnottar Castle was the original name of a twin-screw passenger ship built in 1936 and more widely known under her later name Victoria or The Victoria. Victoria was a cruise liner first operated by the Incres Steamship Co and later by Chandris Lines in the Caribbean Sea. Victoria was sold to Louis Cruise Lines in 1993 which operated the ship as Princesa Victoria until it was scrapped in India in 2004. Victoria retained a classic liner look with several features unchanged since her pre-war construction for her entire operational life. The ship's final incarnation was as the Princesa Victoria making 2 and 3-day cruises from Cyprus under the ownership of Louis Cruise Lines. During the winter seasons, Princesa Victoria was laid up in Perama. She was used as a shore-side hotel-ship for Expo '98 and for the G8 summit in Genoa in 2001. Finally, the ship was laid up in 2002 and broken up in 2004 at the Kumar Steel Breakers Yard in India. At the time, she was the oldest large liner still operating anywhere in the world.

Russian Navy - Pytlivyy 868
Krivak-class frigate From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia he Project 1135 Burevestnik (Storm Petrel) class were a series of frigates or guard ships (patrol boats). Built in the Soviet Union, the ships were commissioned primarily for the Soviet Navy since 1970, later some sub-branch was designed for coastal patrol. Until 1977 the class was considered as a big anti-submarine ship. These ships are commonly known by their NATO reporting class name of Krivak and are divided into Krivak I, Krivak II (both navy), and Krivak III (coast guard) classes. These ships were designed as a successor to the Riga class. The design started in the late 1950s and matured as an anti-submarine ship in the 1960s. The first ship was Soviet frigate Bditelnyy that was commissioned in 1970. A total of 40 ships were built, 32 ships for the Soviet Navy (Russian Navy) and 8 modified ships of Nerey (Krivak III) subclass for the KGB Maritime Border Guard. Currently 7 of Nerey subclass are in FSB Coast Guard and one is part of Ukrainian Navy. The ship's unique features—the bow missile box, the stack and the angled mast, earned it a rap-like nickname among U. S. sailors that comes from their foreign ship silhouette identification training — "Hot dog pack, Smokestack, Guns in Back — Krivak."[1][2] How many ships remain in active duty is uncertain. According to some sources Russia has four units in service and the Ukrainian Navy, one.[3][4] Russian press listed three units operational in February 2008, one with the Baltic Fleet and two with the Black Sea Fleet (BSF).[5] The Indian Navy ordered six frigates of upgraded Krivak III class as the Talwar class. Three ships were delivered in 2003–2004. Three more were delivered in 2011–2012. On 12 October 2010, it was announced that the Yantar Yard at Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea had won a contract to construct three new warships for the Russian Navy. The construction of the frigates for the Russian Navy will be carried out in parallel with the construction of the same-type frigates for the Indian Navy.

The logistic support vessel has to be in position to refuel the squadron and also provide full logistic support in terms of repair workshops, spare parts, ammunition replenishment and supplies. HS Prometheus is also capable of performing civil protection roles at times of crisis. The ship has high autonomous capacity to provide electrical power, fresh water and prepared meals and also has fully equipped hospital and medical facilities on board. The choice of the name PROMETHEUS for the new Logistic Support vessel refers straight to the Greek mythology. Prometheus was a Titan who with the help of Goddess Athena and breaking Zeus' order, stole the secret of Fire (Energy) and gave it as a gift to Man. Throughout history Prometheus has symbolized unyielding strength that resists oppression.

SPM with Product transfer system
Single buoy mooring From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A Single buoy mooring (SBM) (also known as single-point mooring or SPM) is a loading buoy anchored offshore, that serves as a mooring point and interconnect for tankers loading or offloading gas or liquid products. SPMs are the link between geostatic subsea manifold connections and weathervaning tankers. They are capable of handling any size ship, even very large crude carriers (VLCC) where no alternative facility is available. Parts[edit] There are four parts in the total buoying system: the body of the buoy, mooring and anchoring elements, product transfer system and other components. Buoy body[edit] The buoy body usually is supported on static legs attached to the seabed, with a rotating part above water level connected to the (off)loading tanker. The two sections are linked by a roller bearing, referred to as the "main bearing". The moored tanker can freely weather vane around the buoy and find a stable position due to this arrangement. Mooring and anchoring parts[1][edit] Moorings fix the buoy to the seabed. Buoy design must account for the behaviour of the buoy given applicable wind, wave and current conditions and tanker sizes. This determines the optimum mooring arrangement and size of the various mooring leg components. Anchoring points are greatly dependent on local soil condition. Mooring components[1][edit] Anchors or piles - To connect the mooring to the seabed Sinker or anchor chain joint to buoy (SPM) Anchor chain Chainstoppers - To connect the chains to the buoy Manpower Hawser arrangement[edit] A tanker is moored to a buoy by means of a hawser arrangement. Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) standards are available for mooring systems. The hawser arrangement usually consist of nylon rope, which is shackled to an integrated mooring uni-joint on the buoy deck. At the tanker end of the hawser, a chafe chain is connected to prevent damage from the tanker fairlead. A load pin can be applied to the mooring uni-joint on the buoy deck to measure hawser loads. Hawser systems use either one or two ropes depending on the largest size of vessel which would be moored to the buoy. The ropes would either be single-leg or grommet leg type ropes. These are usually connected to an OCIMF chafe chain on the export tanker side (either type A or B depending on the maximum size of the tanker and the mooring loads). This chafe chain would then be held in the chain stopper on board the export tanker. A basic hawser system would consist of the following (working from the buoy outwards): Buoy-side shackle and bridle assembly for connection to the padeye on the buoy; Mooring hawser shackle; Mooring hawser; Chafe chain assembly; Support buoy; Pick-up / messenger lines; Marker buoy for retrieval from the water. Under OCIMF recommendations, the hawser arrangement would normally be purchased as a full assembly from a manufacturer. Product transfer system[edit] The heart of each buoy is the product transfer system. From a geostatic location, e.g. a pipeline end manifold (PLEM) located on the seabed, this system transfers products to the offtake tanker. The basic product transfer system components are: Flexible subsea hoses, generally referred to as “risers” Floating hose string(s) Marine Breakaway Coupling Product swivel, valves and piping Risers[edit] The risers are flexible hoses that connect the subsea piping to the buoy. Configuration of these risers can vary depending on water depth, sea state, buoy motions, etc. Floating hose string[edit] Floating hose string(s) connect the buoy to the offloading tanker. The hose string can be equipped with a breakaway coupling to prevent rupture of hoses/hawser and subsequent oil spills. Product swivel[edit] The product swivel is the connection between the geostatic and the rotating parts of the buoy. The swivel enables an offloading tanker to rotate with respect to the mooring buoy. Product swivels range in size depending on the size of attached piping and risers. Product swivels can provide one or several independent paths for fluids, gases, electrical signals or power. Swivels are equipped with a multiple seal arrangement to minimise the possibility of leakage of product into the environment. Other components[edit] Other possible components of SPMs are: A boat landing, providing access to the buoy deck, Fendering to protect the buoy, Lifting and handling equipment to aid materials handling, Navigational aids for maritime visibility, and fog horn to keep moving vessel alert. An electrical subsystem to enable valve operation and to power navigation aids or other equipment.

USS Blue Ridge - LCC 19
USS Blue Ridge (LCC-19) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia is the lead ship of the two Blue Ridge–class command ships of the United States Navy, and is the command ship of the United States Seventh Fleet. Her primary role is to provide command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I) support to the commander and staff of the United States Seventh Fleet. She is currently forward-deployed to U.S. Navy Fleet Activities, Yokosuka in Japan, and is the third Navy ship named after the Blue Ridge Mountains, a range of mountains in the Appalachian Mountains of the eastern United States. Blue Ridge is the oldest deployable warship of the U.S. Navy, following the decommissioning of USS Denver (LPD-9) in Pearl Harbor on 14 August 2014.[2][3] As of 2011, Blue Ridge was expected to remain in service until 2039. was put "in commission special" on 14 November 1970, at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard as an Amphibious Command and Control (LCC) ship, with Captain Kent J. Carroll (Vice Admiral Carroll, Ret.) as the Commanding Officer. The ship was sponsored by Mrs. Gretchen Byrd, wife of the U. S. Senator from Virginia, Harry F. Byrd, Jr.. The principal speaker at the ceremony was the Honorable John W. Warner, Under Secretary of the Navy and later Senator from Virginia. [6] Blue Ridge was the replacement for the USS Estes (LCC-12), but Estes was decommissioned earlier than planned in October 1969 due to the budget cuts of the late 1960s.[7] Blue Ridge was the first ship of her class and represented almost 7 years of planning and construction work. The result was a ship specifically designed from the keel up as a command and control ship. As designed, Blue Ridge was capable of supporting the staff of both the Commander of an Amphibious Task Force and the staff of the Commanding General of the Landing Force. The advanced computer system, extensive communications package and modern surveillance and detection systems was molded into the most advanced joint amphibious command and control center ever constructed.[8] Original Specifications At the time of her commissioning, Blue Ridge had the distinction of carrying the world's most sophisticated electronics suite. It was said to be some thirty percent larger than that of the USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) which had been the most complex. Blue Ridge was armed with a "main battery" of computers, communications gear, and other electronic facilities to fulfill her mission as a command ship. An extremely refined communications system was also an integral part of the ship's radical new design. Through an automated patch panel and computer controlled switching matrix her crew could utilize any combination of communication equipment desired. The clean topside area is the result of careful design intended to minimize the ship's interference with her own communications system.[9] US Navy long range communications were heavily reliant on High frequency radio systems in the 1970s and have evolved to predominately satellite communications in the 2000s. This is illustrated by the long wire antennas and the directional HF yagi or log-periodic antenna initially installed on Blue Ridge and later removed and replaced with a number of satellite communications antennas. Besides small arms, Blue Ridge was armed with two twin Mark 33 3″/50 caliber guns at commissioning, though they have since been removed. She also carried two Mark 25 launchers and electronics for the Basic Point Defense Missile System (BPDMS) which was added sometime in the 1970s and removed in the 1990s. Two 20mm Phalanx CIWS systems were added in the 1980s for point defense. In recent years she has also carried 25mm Bushmaster cannons.

Its designation in the Soviet and Russian navies is Project 1239; the first vessel produced under this designation was Sivuch, which was later renamed Bora. It is one of the largest combat sea vehicles with catamaran design. The ship is one of many marine craft built by the Russian Federation for coastal defense, both domestically and for export. The weapons array Bora class warships carry varies depending on which of several configurations it is built to. The specifications listed are for the two existing craft. The Bora-class was designed in 1988 mainly for coastal defense and patrol duties against surface vessels, large and small. Two were built and are currently in service, both assigned to the Russian Black Sea Fleet. A future series of hovercraft have been planned based on this model for future production.
