Consequently, dredging contractors have to make new calculations, involving various production parameters, when preparing their project quotations. Damen has introduced an online dredge job calculator to unburden contractors of this time-consuming, and therefore costly, tasks.For every dredging job, whether it is a maintenance dredging, sand dredging or capital dredging project, the local government concerned will present a public tender.In submitting their offers, contractors will then put in a considerable amount of effort – mostly in calculating the estimated production of each different job site. It is imperative that these calculations are accurate as it is the production that defines what dredging equipment is required, said Damen.“Damen’s new dredging calculation tool assists contractors with what is typically a long-drawn-out process. With just a few mouse clicks on the straightforward online platform, known as Sandy, the contractor enters the defining characteristics of the dredging job at hand,” the company said in its release.According to Damen, the result not only provides detailed advice on which cutter suction dredger should be mobilized, but also includes which options are complementary to the specific project. This can include supplementary equipment such as spud carriages, booster stations and anchor booms.Sandy was designed by Lennart Koning, Dredging Production Specialist at Damen Dredging Equipment.In explaining the motivations behind the development, he said: “Each dredging job is calculated on dredge production – and Sandy will help determine that valuable production information. With the input from any tender, a contractor will know what dredger to use within minutes. Moreover, by simply adding an option, such as a spud carriage for instance, the contractor can see the potential efficiency gain immediately.”Sandy is based on a full size calculation model, drawing on an extensive database that performs all the necessary calculations and taking maneuvering into account.
US-based Enterprise Products Partners has added fueling capabilities for deep-draft vessels at its Houston Ship Channel export facility.As of June 1, 2018, the company said it is the exclusive provider of residual marine fuel (RMG 380) and marine gas oil (MGO) at its Enterprise Hydrocarbons Terminal (EHT).Enterprise said that these fuels are the primary transportation fuels used by deep-draft vessels that dock at the EHT facility.“Being able to fuel ships as they load and offload product at our EHT marine terminal significantly streamlines the process, saving our customers time and money by not having to stop at a third party facility,” James Teague, chief executive officer of Enterprise’s general partner, said.RMG 380 and MGO are delivered to the terminal by barge and stored in dedicated tanks with approximately 300,000 barrels of capacity. Pipelines transport the fuels to each of EHT’s seven docks.
