Other Media | EuropaAzul: Brussels offers contingency plans in fishing if Brexit negotiation falls

Thursday, December 10, 2020

The European Commission has published a proposal with contingency measures for the road transport, fishing and aviation sectors to avoid chaos in relations with the United Kingdom if the negotiations for a future agreement finally fail and its final exit is confirmed from the EU to the braves on December 31st.

These are concrete measures and with a limited duration, according to Brussels, which wants to prevent these contingency plans from covering in the long term the gaps that should be resolved with a broader trade and association agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Umitron launches automatic fish measuring system

Thursday, December 10, 2020

A new system that uses AI and IoT technology to automatically measure the size of the fish in aquaculture installations, by using a portable camera paired with a mobile app, has been developed by Umitron.

Being able to track fish during their growth cycles is an essential part of farm management. The current way of measuring fish growth involves sampling an adequate number of fish frequently – which is not only a labour-intensive operation for farmers, but can also cause stress to the fish.

Umitron Lens utilises small stereo cameras and artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically measure fish size in the cages and connects to the internet to store data in the cloud.

IN BRIEF - Shell Signed Up by Wartsila as Partner for Engine Testing

Wednesday, December 09, 2020

Royal Dutch Shell Plc. was hand-picked by Wartsila Oyj  to operate as the latter’s test oil partner for its marine and energy engines during the factory testing process.

The selection was made on the basis of Shell’s comprehensive range of market-leading lubricant oils for stationary engines that operate on gas, heavy fuel oil, gasoil and liquid biofuel.

Lubricants significantly contribute to the Factory Acceptance Tests (“FAT”) of engines and Shell’s engine oil is expected to grease Wartsila’s engines during the tests to increase longevity. The engines are commonly used in the marine and energy sector applications around the world. For example, Wärtsilä 31 is recognized as the most-efficient engine globally, which can operate a wide range of fuels while significantly reducing carbon emissions.

Further, as a global supplier of engine oils to the technology group, Shell offers additional products like hydraulic and gear oils that are part of the factory production process. Importantly, the company’s Mysella, Argina and Gadinia range of stationary gas-engine oil was developed to ensure excellent engine sanitation, enhanced wear protection, long oil life, and high system efficiency.

The vessel is cautiously proceeding to the port of Kobe, Japan with an ETB of 1200LT on December 8, subject to all operations proceeding as planned.

Then, a thorough assessment will be made on the exact number and type of containers that have been lost or damaged.
