Page 37 of 52 November 2018 | ST 37 Panamá Maritime Authority Installs Beacons Panamá Maritime Authority installed three new sec- tor lights and towers to improve the navigation safety of ships coming into the Bays of Manzanillo and Las Minas on Panama's Atlantic coast. The beacons consist of sector lights on 15- to 40-m towers. The tender issued by Pana- má Maritime Authority was awarded to Delta 9, a local contractor, and Spanish company Almarin was subcon- tracted for the design and supply of AtoN, specifically the lights, towers and solar energy supply systems. Ships Plan to Run on Hydrogen Extracted from Seawater Joi Scientific signed a license agreement for its Hy- drogen 2.0 production technology with boat retailer MarineMax. The license agreement grants MarineMax the exclusive rights to develop, manufacture and sell propulsion and auxiliary boat power systems capable of running on hydrogen extracted from seawater using Joi Scientific's Hydrogen 2.0 technology. Hydrogen 2.0 is a hydrogen production process based on the extraction of hydrogen directly from untreated seawater on demand at the point of use. Seabin to Collect Trash from Chesapeake The first Seabin will be installed on the U.S. East Coast at Nauticus, a maritime science center in Norfolk, Virgin- ia. The Seabin was donated by Wärtsilä Defense Inc. It will be maintained by Nauticus's Junior Scientists' Club, a STEM after-school program for students from local ju- nior high schools. The Seabin will clean as much as 1 t of litter from the river each year. Falmouth Scientific to Integrate Seismic Technology into ExxonMobil Design Falmouth Scientific (FSI) received a patent immuni- ty from ExxonMobil for its cable head marine seismic source (CHS) patent and will incorporate its seismic source with HawkEye Clear Signature technology into ExxonMobil's CHS concept for near-zero offset data ac- quisition in 3D marine seismic surveys.
