Cleaning ship emissions with metal sponge cells
The world shipbuilding industry is facing drastically


Read more: http://science.oceanhub.com/cleaning-ship-emissions-with-metal-sponge-cells-9#ixzz403LcyiTX
The world shipbuilding industry is facing drastically stricter requirements for emissions starting this year, and by 2020 emissions will need to be cut even more. Currently, as many as 60 per cent of the world’s ports have voluntarily joined forces and agreed that they will refuse access to ships that fail to comply with the emission standards. By 2020, this restriction will apply to all ports.Given this outlook, many smaller and larger vessels a...

Fish farming gobbles up phosphorus
PHOSPHORUS: The projected growth in aquaculture production in


Read more: http://science.oceanhub.com/fish-farming-gobbles-up-phosphorus#ixzz403LQ5OUH
PHOSPHORUS: The projected growth in aquaculture production in Norway could drastically increase phosphorus losses and emissions to water bodies and also make the country more dependent on imported raw materials.But what if that phosphorus could be reused? Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Nibio, the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research say that finding a way to reuse this “waste” phosphorus could allow fo...

Taking care of elderly wells
Thousands of old offshore oil wells will have to


Read more: http://science.oceanhub.com/taking-care-of-elderly-wells/#ixzz403LCkZhz
“The first thing we have to do is get an overall picture of the wells in question, their condition, maturity and the cost of the technology”, says Kjetil Midthun at SINTEF.“Then we can generate a database, and after that develop a planning tool designed to reduce costs. The industry and consultancy companies are showing great interest and we have 19 stakeholders participating in this project. These are costs that Norway has to bear and the time i...

Vital tsunami detection role for Maersk ships
Ocean observation network uses vessels with


Read more: http://innovations.oceanhub.com/vital-tsunami-detection-role-for-maersk-ships#ixzz403Knvp1D
Rapid detection and accurate assessments of tsunamis in the open ocean are vital to give scientists enough time to predict the probable damage risks to threatened coastlines - and for near-shore coastlines to take whatever steps they can to mitigate their impact.With state-of-the-art sensor technologies and advanced communication systems on board, the global shipping fleet is in an ideal position to provide 'early warning' information that could ...

Innovative concept SOV for offshore wind sector
Walk-to-work vessel will provide fast access to


Read more: http://innovations.oceanhub.com/innovative-concept-sov-for-offshore-wind-sector#ixzz403KTKbyN
Contracts have been signed for a ground-breaking walk-to-work vessel purposely-designed to provide operational support to the offshore wind industry, especially installations in the deeper North Sea waters.A new service operations vessel (SOV), Bibby WaveMaster 1, will be the first vessel purpose-built for transferring and accommodating offshore support and maintenance engineers. The aim is to respond quickly and efficiently, providing support to...

OIL SPILL CLEANUP: Oil spills happen all the time in the ocean, all over the world. We usually only read about the big catastrophes, like the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, but there were 40 smaller maritime oils spills in Norway alone during the course of last year.The current standard cleanup method uses chemicals to disperse the oil into small enough particles for natural bacteria in the ocean to be able to digest.However, research on thi...

Read more: http://science.oceanhub.com/kon-tiki2-expedition-in-heyerdahl-s-wake#ixzz403LJigro
Kon-Tiki 2 expedition set out on a journey across the Pacific on two newly built balsa rafts, built at the SIMA naval base in Lima, Peru. The expedition follows in the wake of Thor Heyerdahl’s 1947 Kon-Tiki expedition.But Kon-Tiki2 is not sailing all the way to Polynesia like Heyerdahl did. Their destination is Easter Island, where the rafts will turn around and sail back to South America. The expedition chose this route, both to support but also...

Its maiden voyage is unlikely to take place before 2020 and cutting of the first steel is seemingly some way off too but the design principles have now been finalised for a vessel that is already being described as the world's greenest cruise ship.Ecoship is a futuristic concept 55,000 ton cruise vessel characterised by its distinctive whale-resembling shape and ten huge retractable solar-panelled sails, retractable wind generators and future-rea...

With further increases in shipping traffic and commercial interests across the Arctic, including fisheries and petrochemical exploration, the U.S. is stepping up its icebreaking capabilities to ensure continuous year-round access through the region's ice-laden waters.Exploration in the Arctic regions is considered more technically challenging than most uncharted territories yet geologists believe it to be one of the final remaining environments w...

Humble krill are small, shrimp-like marine animals which are much in demand throughout the world.Rich in protein - which accounts for as much as 40 per cent of their dried body weight - the global harvest of krill from fisheries amounts to between 150,000 and 200,000 tons annually, mainly from the Antarctic and North Pacific.Much of the catch is used as aquaculture feed and fish bait, although other uses include livestock and pet foods. Human con...
