World’s Biggest Ocean Technology Event Open to the Public

Ocean Business 2019, the world’s biggest ocean technology event this year, has just opened its doors to welcome visitors from all over the world. The show is a global stage for the latest sea technology innovations. Ocean Business will take place from 9-11 April 2019 at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, UK. Unmanned boats and underwater vehicles Cheri Arvoni, Ocean Business event manager, said "There is no doubt that sea technology this year is dominated by unmanned boats and underwater vehicles. In fact, we had to build an extra floating pontoon to accommodate all these products at the show. Two local companies,... (read more)

Two Arctic Shipping Routes Ice-free and Open For Passage

Satellite measurements indicate that there will once again be a below-average ice cover in the Arctic this year. As sea ice has melted during the summer months, two major shipping routes have opened in the Arctic Ocean. While the Northern Sea Route above Russia (also known as the Northeast Passage) has been open to shipping traffic since mid-August, recent satellite data show that the most direct course in the Northwest Passage now appears to be navigable too.   Located in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, the Northwest Passage can be a shortcut for shipping between Europe and Asia - but with...

Wärtsilä Software to Open Simulation Centre near Portsmouth

Wärtsilä is to supply and configure software solutions for a purpose-built simulation centre being constructed near Portsmouth, UK. The centre is an expansion of the Maritime Skills Academy’s (MSA) training portfolio serving the Solent region and is designed to meet the specific simulation training requirements of the cruise, ferry and superyacht clients. MSA Solent is part of the Viking Maritime Group, headquartered in Dover, UK. The software is developed by Transas, a Wärtsilä company, who will also provide technical and maintenance support to the project. The order with Wärtsilä was booked in March 2019.

Opening and Open House of Maritime Knowledge Centre

Seafoundation will open its Maritime Knowledge Centre for sub-sea and sub-ocean studies Seabase in Kamperland (The Netherlands). Seabase is independent and is founded after the Annual Programme of National Park Oosterschelde appeared to ignore water-aspects of nature monitoring. Activities of the organisation are sea survey (with own vessels and laboratory), education and the management of the reception hall. Sea Knowledge combines hydrography, maritime biology, oceanography, construction and aquatic ecotechnology. The opening of the centre is accompanied by a survey with the vessel Sezanne on the Grevelingen. On 6th January 2007 from 13.00, during an open house of the institute, the... (read more)

European Programme to Fund Open Sea Testing For Ocean Energy

The EUR11m FORESEA project brings together Europe’s leading ocean energy test facilities to help demonstration of tidal, wave and offshore wind energy technologies in real-sea conditions. The project is funded by the Interreg NWE (North-West Europe) programme, part of the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund). Led by the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), the FORESEA (Funding Ocean Renewable Energy through Strategic European Action) project will provide funding support to ocean energy technology developers to access Europe’s ocean energy test facilities: EMEC (Orkney Islands, UK) SmartBay (Galway, Ireland) SEM-REV (Nantes, France) Tidal Testing Centre (Den Oever, Netherlands) The test centres will...

Arctic Shipping Routes May Be Open by 2080

Commercial summer shipping across the North Pole may be possible by the end of the century, with the first potential crossings feasible for ice-strengthened ships around 2040, according to a study by scientists at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC, UK). Based on the findings, Arctic shipping could potentially account for as much as 10% of all cargo transported between Europe and the Pacific. It will help supply communities and industries along the coasts of Siberia and Canada. A simulation using NOC ocean models suggests that approximately 40% of Arctic summer sea-ice cover will consist of broken-up ice by the 2040s. This... (read more)
