The company had to blast through 15 m of granite substrata to accommodate the new underground pressure test vessels. Hydrogen Injection Project Secures Funding Innovate UK granted £430,332 in funding to design and integrate a hydrogen diesel dual-fuel injection sys- tem on board a commercial ferry. The hydrogen to be used in the project will be produced by the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) from renewable energy sources, and it will power a ferry operating between the main town of Kirkwall and the island of Shapinsay. The 12-month HyDIME (Hydrogen Diesel Injection in a Ma- rine Environment) project was launched in August. New Supply Vessel to Service UK Terminals World Fuel Services (WFS) has welcomed a new sup- ply vessel to its offering: a 75-m LOA, 3,100-dwt product tanker. Whitstar, owned by Whitaker Tankers, was built in 2004 and is fitted with deep-well pumps capable of delivering fuel in volumes of up to 450 m 3 /hr. The vessel has epoxy-coated cargo tanks, closed loading and has tank level radars fitted. Its hull is strengthened to enable access to NAABSA berths. New Report Details Maritime Cabotage Seafarers' Rights International (SRI) published a re- port that explores the nature and extent of cabotage laws around the world and identified 91 member states of the United Nations that have cabotage laws restricting for- eign activity in their domestic coastal trades. The report describes the history of maritime cabotage and traces early rudimentary legal principles. It sets out examples of different definitions of cabotage that exist today at the national, regional and international levels. Korean Grant Supports Development of Autonomous Ship Control Center eMARINE Global Inc. received a grant from the Ko- rea Institute for Advancement of Technology (KIAT) to develop Smart Station, a smart ship control center de- signed to be the brain of autonomous unmanned ships. The $760,000 KIAT grant covers a one-year program in which eMARINE Global will lead a team, including the Korea Marine Equipment Research Institute (KOMERI), Orion Co. Ltd, Samwoo Imersion Co. Ltd and Hyundai Mipo Dock Yard, in developing the Smart Station. CO 2 Challenge Aims To Reduce Emissions FUELSAVE, the manufacturer of the fuel-saving addi- tive FS Marine+, applied to the CO 2 Challenge, which aims to partner with technology companies that have systems capable of reducing a vessel's CO 2 emissions in line with international climate strategies and targets. Technical applications include submissions for wind pro- pulsion technologies, engine optimization systems, digi- tal solutions and hull optimization concepts.
