Star Reefers chooses Easeacon and FuelSaver for retrofit on board 4 reefer vessels
08-05-2014

Ship owner Star Reefers UK Ltd. has recently had 4 of their reefer vessels lengthened at BSIC Qingdao Beihai Shipyard in China. The names of the vessels are: M/V Caribbean Star, M/V Costa Rican Star, M/V Cote D’ivoirian Star and M/V Colombian Star.

The Naval Architects, Burness Corlett Three Quays (BCTQ), participated as technical consultants.

This extensive project also included replacement of the existing loading software on board the vessels.

Mr. Alex Gregg-Smith, Fleet Technical Manager of Star Reefers, made a detailed analysis of the loading software brands available on the market and after careful comparison it was decided to place the order for 4 x Easeacon incl. FuelSaver by Marine Alignment A/S.

The advanced Easeacon loading software supplied for the vessels includes modules for planning of container -, pallet - and polygon shaped break bulk cargo. A crane module has been designed for simulation of heavy lifts and the special feature F & Q diagram is also included in order to prevent the danger of broaching in following and quartering seas.

The FuelSaver module, which is based on power consumption data provided by CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) makes it easy to find the optimum trim and ballast solution for minimized fuel consumption by actual loading condition and speed.

This exiting project is now close to being completed and the entire Marine Alignment team thanks Star Reefers and BCTQ very much for an excellent cooperation. 

 

M/V Amazon Warrior delivered from Flensburger SG with Easeacon on board
26-06-2014

Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) has recently delivered M/V Amazon Warrior to the ship owner WesternGeco. The vessel is the first of an order for two offshore seismic sister vessels designed for seeking seabed oil and gas.

The Easeacon Loading Computer System by Marine Alignment has been selected for installation on board the two vessels. 

These vessels are of the Amazon-class, featuring the world's first custom-built hull and propulsion system, developed exclusively for seismic operations using a WesternGeco proprietary design. 

As far as efficiency, safety, reliability and durability are concerned, these vessels meet the highest of demands and support secure operation anywhere the ships operate, including the Polar Regions, even in the most inhospitable weather conditions.

The sister vessel to M/V Amazon Warrior is planned for delivery from FSG to WesternGeco later this year.

Marine Alignment congratulates the yard and owner on the delivery of M/V Amazon Warrior. 

 

Grimaldi Group expands the co-operation with Marine Alignment
02-04-2014

Marine Alignment has supplied loading computer systems to the RORO, CONRO and PCC vessels of the major Italian ship owner Grimaldi Group for 17 years. Easeacon is presently installed on board more than 50 Grimaldi vessels.

The Grimaldi owned Atlantic Container Line (ACL) has now joined the co-operation with Marine Alignment. ACL has five 45.000 DWT CONRO vessels on order at Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding in China for delivery in 2015. The G4 (Generation 4) design of the vessels has been engineered in Denmark and it is quite revolutionary. The vessels will be bigger, faster, greener and more efficient than the previous G3 design and they will be supplied with the Easeacon loading computer system including the FuelSaver module.

Easeacon Break Bulk Lashing feature
28-01-2014

Easeacon Break Bulk Lashing is a calculation tool for evaluation of securing arrangements for break bulk items. It is an (optional) integrated feature in the Easeacon Loading Computer System.

Easeacon Break Bulk Lashing calculates accelerations and balance of forces in semi- and non-standardized lashing arrangements in accordance with Annex 13 to the Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and Securing (the CSS code) from IMO.

The calculations are performed according to the ‘Advanced Calculation Method’ (CS = MSL/1,5)

By right-clicking on a break bulk item in Easeacon, the ‘Cargo Securing Editor’ for that item can be opened in a separate window.

The ship and cargo details will be entered automatically, and the user can manually enter the details of the transverse and longitudinal lashings applied.

The system will calculate the forces for the break bulk item (transverse sliding/tipping + longitudinal sliding) and inform the results in details as well as with a ‘Lashing OK’ (green) or ‘Lashing NOT OK’ (red) indicator field.

The results for the particular break bulk item will be presented in a report which can be printed or saved in pdf format.

It is also possible to check all the cargo securing arrangements on board by running the ‘Break Bulk Cargo Securing Report’. This facility is particularly useful if the loading condition of the vessel has changed (i.e. higher GM).

If you are interested in more information, please send an email to info@marinealignment.com or call us at +45 4495 1321. 

 

New Easeacon LC/RSCS Container Lashing module is now approved by GL
11-12-2013

The LC (Lashing Computer for unrestricted service) and RSCS (Route Specific Container Stowage) notations were recently introduced by GL (Germanischer Lloyd). Marine Alignment’s new Easeacon LC/RSCS Container Lashing module ensures that all GL classed container vessels equipped with Easeacon Loading Computer System can benefit from the new GL notations.

Marine Alignment has implemented the new LC/RSCS Container Lashing module on 8 Rickmers Shipmanagement 13.100 TEU container vessels, all of which are on charter to Maersk Line.

M/V Maersk Elba was the first of the 8 vessels to receive the GL approval certificate. This took place at a ceremony in Hamburg attended by representatives of Rickmers Shipmanagement, Germanischer Lloyd and Marine Alignment.

The new GL notations offer several advantages. The LC notation, based on modified rules, provides increased stowage flexibility for unrestricted service along all routes.

With the RSCS notation however, GL is the first classification society to develop a class notation that allows for Route Specific Container Stowage.  

Previously, all ships had to comply with stowage and lashing rules based on wave and wind load schemes of the harsh North Atlantic waters, in spite of operating in a calmer region. These rules reduced the flexibility for the ship planners and also prevented optimal utilization when it came to loading the vessel due to weight and stowage restrictions.  

The new RSCS notation makes it possible for ship owners and operators to tailor make a solution based on the actual routes operated. This ensures that loading capacity and flexibility are being optimized and that profitability increases. More and heavier containers can be loaded on specific routes and last minute cargo changes can be handled without having to re-stow containers due to weight restrictions, thereby reducing turnaround time in port.

10 standard routes are available from GL, and individual routes are offered upon request.  

How do you get LC/RSCS if you have a GL classed container vessel with Easeacon onboard?

First you request a LC/RSCS notation from GL for the relevant route(s). This requires an update of the existing cargo securing manual.  When this is in place, Marine Alignment can implement the LC/RSCS Container Lashing module in the Easeacon loading software of the vessel.  The updated software must finally be approved by GL.

FuelSaver provides remarkable savings for Lauritzen Kosan
06-09-2013

Lauritzen Kosan has recently installed the FuelSaver module from Marine Alignment onboard 9 of their LPG vessels. The feedback from the Danish ship owner is extremely positive.

”We installed the FuelSaver software from Marine Alignment on our six 8000 cbm LPG vessels a few months ago. The feedback from the vessels has been very positive. The first results show even higher fuel savings than expected, and if this continues the investment will be returned within few months. This even though, the Easeacon loading computer system onboard these vessels already had the opti-trim facility installed. Due to the success on the first vessels, we have now also installed FuelSaver on our three 9000 cbm LPG vessels. These vessels had another loading computer brand, which we replaced with Easeacon at the same time. We expect that the total investment in FuelSaver + Easeacon also will be very profitable. FuelSaver both encourages and helps the crew to get the most out of the expensive fuel."

Henrik Ahrenst
Naval Architect, Projects, Fleet Management at Lauritzen Kosan

Much more than conventional trim optimization
07-06-2013

FuelSaver is a software tool that can improve your business by reducing the fuel consumption due to trim optimization. As opposed to conventional trim optimization it will not suggest a theoretical solution. FuelSaver will specify an actual ballast solution to achieve the optimum obtainable trim/draught, based on the specific loading condition/speed of the vessel and with validation of strength/stability. The result is minimized fuel consumption and minimized emissions.

Around the world in 30 years
24-06-2012

Marine Alignment, headquartered in Denmark, has always focused on the international market, with agents and offices in places such as Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Germany.

We entered the global market over 30 years ago when working with an agent for the Italian Fincantieri. This relationship helped build contacts in the industry that last to this day. Marine Alignment is still assisting the largest shipping lines in Italy like the Grimaldi Group and Ignazio Messina & C.

Many years ago, another collaboration began when representatives from Marine Alignment were returning to Denmark after a conference in Germany, and decided to knock on the doors of Hamburg Süd. They answered the door, and many years later, this collaboration, along with many other partners in SMDG, led to the creation of the data exchange format known today as BAPLIE.

The BAPLIE message is a widely used EDIFACT message in the shipping industry. It is used by and between various parties to advise the stowage position and other information of the containers onboard a vessel.

Many of our employees are experts such as Naval Architects and Navigators. With the support of experienced, inhouse IT resources, they create the software, install it on the vessels, and make sure the crew is well trained in the use of the software. More importantly, the team ensures that all systems are supported and communicating correctly with other systems onboard, and they coordinate with the Class Surveyor to obtain the onboard approval.

Our software is, of course, approved by the major international classification societies:

  • Lloyds Register
  • Germanischer Lloyd
  • Bureau Veritas
  • Registro Italiano Navale
  • Det Norske Veritas
  • American Bureau of Shipping
  • Class NK

The composition of the team is a crucial part of the strategy of always being able to further develop the software systems, and to be able to adapt the software to the changing requirements of the vessels and the challenges faced in the maritime world.

For example, Marine Alignment recently delivered Easeacon for several wind turbine installation vessels that required very specific calculations and updates to make the pre-planning and the daily work onboard more efficient.

The international relations are a driving force at Marine Alignment, and we thrive on being part of the ever changing world of maritime technology. It’s still exciting to witness a new generation of vessels and see what challenges they face in the future.

Our dream is to continue to develop sound and reliable solutions for our clients. We will always think outside the box and be innovative in our approach to find the correct answers, just as it all started 30 years ago when we created the first Easeacon and just like today with our FuelSaver software.
The FuelSaver software not only helps  shipowners reduce their fuel consumption and save money, it also helps reduce the C02 emissions and helps protect the environment.

We bring solutions to the table and we will always go the extra mile to help our growing list of international clients. We always have, and we always will.
 

 

FuelSaver: Saving millions with the right tool
22-05-2013

Marine Alignment’s FuelSaver module is probably the best investment for your vessel fleet. Through optimization routines you can cut your fuel consumption by typically approx. 2% and in many cases much more! 

FuelSaver is a software tool that can improve your business by minimizing the fuel consumption based on validated trim and ballast solutions. It is developed in close cooperation with the end-users and is designed for all vessel types by giving a ballast recommendation. The main goal is to reduce fuel consumption, and subsequently save money.

The process to start saving fuel is simple. The results are achieved by analyzing a wide range of data normally obtained either through model testing (usually executed at the design stage of the ship), or through CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics). The data can also be obtained by interfacing FuelSaver to real time data collection systems on board the ship.

Once the data has been collected, it is embedded into the FuelSaver software which is an integrated module in the Easeacon Loading Computer System made by Marine Alignment. FuelSaver can also be interfaced with other brands of Loading Computer Systems.

There are many fuel consumption reduction approaches available on the market, but Fuelsaver is one of the easiest, fastest, and most efficient measures to start reducing fuel.

The economic and environmental impact of FuelSaver can easily be assessed. A medium sized ship working 80% of the time, burning 35 tons of fuel per day, has a need for 10,220 tons of fuel per year. A 2% savings equals 204 tons of fuel, or approximately $147,000 savings for your company and over 636,000Kgs of CO2 per year… this means an ROI of 3 to 6 months.

 

“With Fuelsaver, you can safely adjust the trim before and during transit efficiently as speed or condition changes. This makes it possible to optimize on the go, i.e. when the ship becomes lighter as fuel is consumed” says Peter Bohé from Marine Alignment. 

 The fact that you can utilize the loading computer for this type of optimization is new, but there is no doubt that as more and more ship owners become aware of these new advances, they will begin to implement the FuelSaver system. The savings and ease of installation is overwhelming, so it’s just a question of time before most ships will be using these types of fuel saving systems.

FuelSaver is developed by the Danish company Marine Alignment which has been in the maritime market for more than 35 years. Marine Alignment’s primary product, Easeacon, is a Loading Computer System for cargo planning and calculation of strength/stability. The FuelSaver software is a fully integrated module in Easeacon, but it can also be interfaced to other Loading Computer brands. 

 

Easeacon on A2SEA Sea Installer
07-03-2013

Danish wind turbine installation company, A2SEA, has recently completed their first job with the latest new building, the Sea Installer. The Sea Installer is one of the most advanced wind turbine installation vessels sailing the seas, and we’re very proud to have installed our Easeacon Loading Computer onboard this vessel.

In close cooperation with A2SEA we’re developing many new features for this highly specialized type of loading software, so that we can suit the needs in this business as well. Therefore we’re happy to announce, that A2SEA has also ordered our Easeacon system for all their existing vessels as well. 

 

Samskip has also chosen FuelSaver
04-02-2013

Samskip, the main dry cargo carrier between Iceland and northern Europe has decided to update the Easeacon on their 2, Sietas built container vessels Arnafell and Helgafell with the FuelSaver module. The vessels are sailing on a tight schedule not leaving many possibilities for slow steaming. This increases the demand for tools, which can help optimize the daily running of the vessels especially, when it concerns fuel consumption. FuelSaver is doing exactly this.

OSK Shiptech, Danish consulting naval architects are providing the power consumption curves by CFD calculations. These are, together with the optimizing routines the corner stones in the Fuelsaver module. 

 

FuelSaver for Lauritzen Kosan
14-01-2013

Marine Alignment has been supplying the Lauritzen Kosan fleet of LPG vessels with Easeacon loading software for years. Now, the Copenhagen based owner has decided to update the loading software on their series of 6, Korean buit, 8000 m3 LPG carriers with the FuelSaver module. For these vessels Easeacon was already from the beginning equipped with the Optitrim module, by which it was possible to estimate in which direction to trim the vessel in order to save fuel. With the new FuelSaver extension the crew onboard are able, not only to get advice on the optimum trim, but also on how to obtain it. Giving instruction on how to distribute the water ballast and at the same time ensuring that the vessels condition is safe with respect to strength and stability it will help the crew to ensure an efficient operation of the vessels. 

 

Easeacon for the biggest FSG newbuilding to date!
02-01-2013

Flensburg Shipyard, FSG, has just delivered their biggest and longest vessel so far, the 208 meter roro ferry Ulusoy-14. Here at Marine Alignment A/S we are proud to have delivered our Easeacon Loading Computer Software to this vessel, and hence being a part of this milestone for the shipyard.

The vessel will be replacing old tonnage, and will be employed between Cesme and Trieste. Together with the sister vessel already under construction at FSG, these two vessels will replace the 4 older ferries, and we look forward to supply Easeacon for the next vessel, Ulusoy-15.

Marintec 2011
29-11-2011

At the Marintec 2011 show in Shanghai, both Easeacon and Fuelsaver will be on display. Traditionally, Marintec has been the Chinese shipyards opportunity to get foreign suppliers under one roof. Now, with the increasing influence on the global from Chinese shipowners, also suppliers with products supporting ship operations are targeted at the exhibition. Therefore, both Easeacon and FuelSaver will be demonstrated on the stand, and visitors can get a free estimate on the savings potential for their particular ship. We hope to see you among the many visitors at the Marine Alignment stand on the Danish Pavillon in Hall 5, booth no. 5C61-11. 

 

Kormarine 2011
30-10-2011

When you do something for the first time, you'd better do it good. This first time Easeacon was on display at the Kormarine it was on two locations simultaneously; on a separate stand on the Danish pavillon, and represented by Mesco Ltd., who had their own large stand with several other products to demonstrate. At the same time, not only Easeacon was marketed, but the FuelSaver was highlighted and very well received. Although it is more targeting the ship owners, the ship yards and ship designers were also interested in the FuelSaver to make their products more attractive. 

 

FuelSaver introduced successfully
26-10-2011

The first introduction of FuelSaver to the maritime market has been successful. Great interest in saving fuel has been observed, and ships which sail when not fully loaded and in ballast are natural targets for saving fuel; great savings can be made via optimized cargo planning and ballasting. Complex sailing patterns require better optimizing tools.
Several ship owners have already shown great interest in the FuelSaver, a number of FuelSaver orders have been placed and the first installations are being prepared. We expect this to be the biggest development in Easeacon's history, and certainly what will bring the greatest value most immediately to our customers.


See FuelSaver live at Kormarine 2011

Visit us at the Kormarine 2011 exhibition in Korea and watch a live demonstration of FuelSaver. You will be offered the opportunity to order a free calculation of the savings potential for your particular ship. In addition to FuelSaver, we will also be displaying the latest Easeacon software features, including AutoBallast and Extended Visibility (SOLAS MSC (99)73, Reg. 22).

The Kormarine exhibition takes place 26-29 October 2011.

You will find us at both the Danish Marine Group pavilion (booth S73) and the MESCO Ltd. stand in Hall 1 (booth G71

Book with Easeacon reference
03-12-2010

During the last few years Mr. Abdul Khalique has worked on a book about bulk carriers and in November 2010 the “Bulk Carrier Notes” was published by Witherby Seamanship International.

From 2003 to 2008 Mr. Abdul Khalique was working on the Shetland School of Nautical Studies as lecturer.

In March 2005 the school bought 5 Easeacon programs for tutorial purposes including Easeacon for bulk carriers. 

The Easeacon program for bulk carriers has been used as reference and several screen dumps have been used to illustrate the book.
