Smart Marine Ecosystem Innovations
Presenter: Mark Keneford
We are all seeing a very significant shift in the marine industry in demands for new technologies for alternative energy sources to reduce the use of fossil fuels. This manifests itself into new solutions being developed to adopt new fuels in vessels, reduce emissions and enhance digital technologies. Wartsila has made a significant investment in building our capabilities to react to the market disruptions we are seeing today and in the future. The addition of companies such as Transas, Guidance Marine, Eniram, etc, combined with the additions in E&A in the past 2 years, allow Wartsila to innovate and bring to market advanced technologies. This presentation will discuss Wartsila’s focus on the Smart Marine Ecosystem and the innovations we are developing in response. Samples of these technologies include wireless inductive charging, autodocking systems, remote operations of vessels, advanced vessel positioning technologies, integration of battery, hydrogen fuel, shore charging, and other energy solutions, etc, will be presented.
Mark spent 27 years in the Canadian Navy as a marine systems engineering officer and project manager. He sailed in ships and had operating tickets (Navy equivalent) for steam, diesel and gas turbines. Since 2008 he has been employed in Wartsila in Services as Canadian Government service support and then as Wartsila Canada Marine Solutions sales responsible across Canada to represent Wartsila solutions to shipowners, ship design companies and shipyards, in all vessel segments. Mark is a member of CIMARE (St. Lawrence branch) and also SNAME (Eastern Canada section).
Detecting corrosion under insulated material on carbon steel ship floors
Presenters: Guy Fournier and Joe Renaud
Guy Fournier and Joe Renaud introduced Eddify Technologies and discussed the details of detection, sizing and characterization of surface breaking cracks in carbon steel weld seams above and below the water line. They gave a brief comparison of features and benefits of the Sharck array and TSC ACFM pencil probes. Then they gave a demonstration of Eddify Lyft Pulse Eddy Current for detecting corrosion under insulated material on carbon steel ship floors.
Guy has been a Sales Manager at Eddyfi for the past 3 years and is responsible for Eastern Canada and North Asia. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Sherbrooke University and speaks French, English and Spanish. He has over 20 years of experience in sales and marketing in the non-destructive testing and telecommunications business sectors working for Eddyfi Technologies, R/D Tech, Olympus NDT, EXFO and Comlab Telecommunications.
Joe has been involved in eddy current probe design, manufacture and inspection development since 1995 working with Westinghouse Canada, Eddytech, R/D Tech, Zetec, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited and, since 2013, with Eddyfi. Joe has a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Science from Queen’s University and has previously held CGSB Level II certification in eddy current.
