Crowley announces second LNG-powered Roll-On/Roll-Off  ship
2015 August 2




The keel for the second Commitment Class liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered, combination container – Roll-On/Roll-Off (ConRo) ship for Crowley Maritime Corp.’s liner services group was laid yesterday during a ceremony at ship-builder VT Halter Marine, Inc.’s facility in Pascagoula, Miss. The keel laying ceremony marked the next step in the construction of Crowley’s two Commitment Class ships, which will exclusively serve the U.S.-Puerto Rico trade lane.  VT Halter Marine and Crowley entered into a contract for the pair of Jones Act ships in November 2013 and construction of the second ship began with steel cutting in Pascagoula on May 27, 2015. With the first section set in place, the ship will now begin to take shape as it is built around the keel.

Shell (RDS.A) (RDS.B) and Caterpillar (CAT) have signed an agreement to save money and reduce emissions by testing a new bi-fuel engine for use in mining the oil sands of northern Alberta. The new engine will run primarily on LNG instead of diesel. CAT will test the design at Shell's oil sands operations near Fort McMurray. Shell will retrofit its existing truck fleet with the new engine for the trial, as well as providing re-fuelling infrastructure at its Shell Albian Sands operation.

Shell's VP of Oil Sands John Rhind had this to say:

With heavy hauling being such a core part of our operation, success with this could make a real difference in our operations costs and emissions.
I expect all the oil sands miners will follow Shell's lead in adopting natural gas for these huge diesel guzzling Caterpillar trucks.

Interlake moves ahead on LNG fuel plans
May 8, 2013—The Interlake Steamship Company conversion of its vessels to LNG.
When converted, the Interlake ships are expected to be the first LNG-powered ships on the Great Lakes and among the first in the U.S.
With a goal of converting the first vessel by the spring of 2015.
Interlake is already working through engineering and design, seeking regulatory approval and securing financing.

Interlake Steamship to Install Scrubbers on 2 More Ships
Tuesday, August 11, 2015 marinelink.com
The Interlake Steamship Company proves phase one of emissions-reduction technology on Great Lakes; two additional ships to be outfitted with exhaust gas scrubber technology in 2016

Following the implementation of exhaust gas scrubbers on its self-unloading bulk carrier M/V Hon. James L. Oberstar, the Interlake Steamship Company has announced its plans to expand its emission-reduction efforts to one-third of its fleet by installing similar scrubber systems on the M/V Lee A. Tregurtha and M/V James R. Barker early next year.

In April 2015, Interlake became the first U.S.-flag fleet to test freshwater scrubbers on the Great Lakes when the system became operational on the 806-foot Oberstar. The 826-foot Tregurtha and 1,003-foot Barker will be equipped with the same single-inlet, closed-loop DuPont Marine Scrubbers from Belco Technologies Corp. (BELCO), a division of DuPont Sustainable Solutions.

“This technology allows us to achieve our goal of continually shrinking our fleet’s environmental footprint while dependably, safely and efficiently delivering raw materials to our steel, construction and power generation customers throughout the Great Lakes,” said Interlake President Mark Barker. “We have proven the technology on our 800-foot traditional Laker and now we’re ready to scale up to our 1,000-foot class ships with our first installation on the James R. Barker.”

A total of five Interlake vessels – including two additional 1,000-footers: the M/V Paul R. Tregurtha and M/V Mesabi Miner - will be outfitted with these types of scrubbers by 2017.

Caterpillar Marine Power Systems is pleased to announce the development of the MaK™ M 34 DF, a new marine dual fuel engine platform for the commercial marine industry. Hamburg, Germany –cat.com 7/4/2013
M 34 DF dual fuel engine boasts a power rating of 500 kW per cylinder at 720 and 750 rpm in diesel and gas modes, and will share the same footprint as the highly successful M 32 C engine series. The M 34 DF will be capable of running on natural gas as an alternative to marine diesel oil or large and complex scrubber installations for Emission Control Areas (ECA) operation as of 2015. First engine deliveries are foreseen for October 2014.
We’re pleased to continue to deliver on our commitment to bring innovative, efficient solutions to the commercial marine market,” said Carsten Seeburg, MaK product definition manager. “Our customers want a fuel-efficient, sustainable propulsion product with operational flexibility for both IMO and EPA regulated waters and we’re aiming to exceed their expectations with the M 34 DF engine.”

Caterpillar Marine Power Systems has secured EPA Tier 2 Certification of all MaK engine platforms with cylinder volumes of above 30 litres. Included in the certification are the M 32 C, M 43 C, M 46 DF as well as the recently announced M 34 DF engine platform. The certification of the broad range of MaK power solutions provides customers operating in the American market, specifically in the commercial and offshore marine markets, a wide spectrum of power nodes to meet emissions regulations on US flagged vessels.
“At Caterpillar, we recognize the needs of our customers to have flexible power solutions for any market, regardless of emissions regulations. We understand the market they are operating in is evolving in terms of environmental and performance requirements and strive to offer timely, innovative products that continue the Caterpillar legacy of proven performance,” Carsten Seeburg, Caterpillar Marine product definition manager said. “Building on that legacy is the recently introduced M 34 DF engine, which was designed and engineered based on high demand from our offshore customers.”
The M 34 DF dual fuel engine boasts a power rating of 500 kW per cylinder at 720 and 750 rpm in diesel and gas modes, and will share the same footprint as the highly successful M 32 C engine series. The M 34 DF will be capable of running on natural gas as an alternative to marine diesel oil or large and complex scrubber installations for Emission Control Areas (ECA) operation as of 2015. Driven by upcoming fuel sulfur and NOx regulations in ECA, the M 34 DF will provide full flexibility for vessels operating in regulated and/or lesser regulated areas without major changes to the engine room or exhaust gas system, supporting the ease and simplicity of engine installation and certification. Although designed for unlimited operation on LNG, marine diesel oil and heavy fuel oil, the M 34 DF will reach industry-leading efficiency in gas mode, while operating as EPA Tier 3 certified.
“The M 34 DF engine will provide customers familiar with the legendary M 32 C platform a sense of ease in operation as the two platforms feature not only the same footprint but a large amount of shared components,” Seeburg continued.
“The proven performance record of the M 32 C is well regarded throughout the industry with nearly 1,500 engines in the field populations. Vessel operators in the offshore segment, including platform supply vessels, anchor handling tug supply vessels and platform supply vessels, can confidently invest in the new M 34 dual fuel solution based on the success of the M 32 C.”

Driven by upcoming fuel sulfur and NOx regulations in ECA, the M 34 DF will provide full flexibility for vessels operating in regulated and/or lesser regulated areas without major changes to the engine room or exhaust gas system, supporting the ease and simplicity of engine installation and certification.  Although designed for unlimited operation on LNG, marine diesel oil and heavy fuel oil, the M 34 DF will reach industry- leading efficiency in gas mode.
“It was important for us that M 34 DF and M 32 C share the same footprint features, and the same system interfaces. The M 34 DF was designed to provide operators with industry-leading thermal efficiency for lowest total cost of operation,” said Detlef Kirste, MaK product definition manager. “The engine offers optimized load response and load stability in addition to numerous support features, such as remote monitoring and engine system diagnostics, helping engine operators with their daily service and maintenance work. Our target was to keep the typical MaK marine engine attributes like reliability, safety and efficiency while striving for an engine design that is easy to service and maintain.”
With a bore of 340 millimeters and stroke of 460, the engine was designed to the preferred choice for gas electrical and mechanical propulsion applications notably in the offshore and cargo segments. The engine design features new real-time combustion monitoring, Flexible Camshaft Technology functionality as well as a lower valve train and several innovative monitoring and component solutions to ensure maximum safety during operation. 
Caterpillar will offer its renowned service and support for the new MaK dual fuel engine, including installation and application, system integration support, as well as customer and crew training. The M 34 DF will be pass customer acceptance tests and classification approvals in Rostock, Germany and will be sold through Caterpillar’s MaK dealer network.

Caterpillar Dual Fuel LNG Conversion on Furetank Rederi Tanker  Tuesday August 4, 2015
Caterpillar says it is completing a dual fuel engine retrofit conversion for Furetank Rederi’s 472 foot tanker, Fure West.
Caterpillar Marine, a division of Caterpillar Inc. (Caterpillar), has announced that it is completing a dual fuel engine retrofit conversion for Furetank Rederi A/B's 472 foot tanker, Fure West, and will be supplying the complete gas system for the tanker, including bunker stations, two liquid natural gas (LNG) tanks, and the vaporizer.
The project, backed by the European Union and developed with the Zero Vision Tool, will see a MaK M 43 C diesel engine retrofitted in hull to the tanker's 7 cylinder M 46 dual fuel platform, each cylinder offering 900 kW of rated power.
"We're pleased to continue to build upon our successful track record of dual fual conversions in the commercial marine industry and offer an increased scope of supply to our customers," said Finn Vogler, a senior engineer at Caterpillar Marine.
"We have a market-ready technology available that our commercial marine customers can be completely confident in and after our success onboard the Coral Anthelia, we have seen the demand for MaK dual fuel solutions increase substantially."

Although the engine has been designed for unlimited operation on LNG, MDO and HFO, the company notes that the engine will reach industry-leading efficiency in gas mode.

Caterpillar Claims World's First In-Hull LNG Retrofit
Tuesday December 2, 2014
The retrofit was completed in less than six weeks on retrofit on the Anthony Veder-owned liquefued gas carrier, Coral Anthelia, Marine Link reports.  The retrofit upgrades the Coral Anthelia's Caterpillar MaK 43 C diesel engine to become a six cylinder MaK M 46 DF dual-fuel engine.  The new engine will be able to run fully on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), diesel or heavy fuel oil, though it is understood that the MaK M 46 DF will deliver optimal performance on LNG bunkers.  In addition, the retrofit will allow greater flexibility over Emissions Control Area (ECA) compliance.  "As an LNG carrier operating in waters impacted by SECA [ECA] regulations, the Coral Anthelia will be able to optimize its performance utilizing LNG, heavy fuel oil or diesel," said Karl Vollrath, Customer Services Manager for Caterpillar Marine.
Caterpillar Marine completed the project in under six weeks in conjunction with Dutch Caterpillar dealer Bolier. No modifications to the ship's structure were necessary, with the engine block remaining intact.  The Dutch-flagged Coral Anthelia was built between 2013 and 2014 and is classified by Bureau Veritas with a liquefied gas cargo capacity of 6,500 cubic metres, according to the owner's website.

Dual fuel retrofits are said to offer significant savings for some operators, with Canada's BC Ferries recently saying it will save over $8 million per year after retrofits to two of its ferries are complete.

Colossians 1:15-20
; Psalms 100:2-5;  J 7 ; Luke 5:33-39 ;
  1689 B.C. Moses The Holy Prophet and God-Seer of the tribe Levi, son of Abram and Jochabed (Exodus 6:20) performed many miracles during his lifetime, and also after his death. He appeared on Tabor with the Prophet Elias at the Transfiguration of the Lord
His life is described in the Bible (Exodus 2 through Deuteronomy 34:12).
In monte Nebo, terræ Moab, sancti Móysis, legislatóris et Prophétæ.
    On Mount Nebo, in the land of Moab, the holy lawgiver and prophet Moses.
Moses was born in Egypt around 1689 B.C.


The Unburnt Bush Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos is based on the miracle witnessed by Moses in the Old Testament. In Chapter 3 of Exodus God calls Moses on Mt. Horeb from the midst of a bush which "was burning, yet it was not consumed" (Ex. 3:2). Moses is informed that he will lead the Hebrews out of their slavery in Egypt, and then God tells him His name, "I am Who am" (Ex. 3:14).

The Church has always regarded the Unburnt Bush on Horeb as a type of the Most Holy Theotokos giving birth to the Savior Christ, while remaining a Virgin. This imagery is to be found in the Church's hymnography (for example, the Dogmatikon at Saturday Vespers in Tone 2), and also in iconography.

One of the earliest depictions of the Mother of God as the Unburnt Bush shows her holding her divine Son in the midst of a burning bush. Moses is shown to one side, removing his sandals, for that place was holy (Ex. 3:5).

Most icons now depict the bush in a symbolic fashion. There are two overlapping diamonds: one red (representing the fire), the other green (representing the bush), forming an eight pointed star. The Theotokos is shown in the center.

In the four corners of the green diamond are the symbols of the four Evangelists: a man (St Matthew), a lion (St Mark), an ox (St Luke), and an eagle (St John). These symbols are derived from Ezekiel 1:10 and Revelation 4:7. Archangels are depicted in the four corners of the red diamond.

The design of the icon has become more complex over time. Now we can see archangels, Moses and the burning bush (Ex. 3:2), Isaiah and the seraphim with the burning coal (Is. 6:7), Ezekiel and the gate through which only the Lord may enter (Ez. 44:2), and Jacob with the ladder (Gen. 28:12). The Theotokos is shown holding Jacob's ladder which leads from earth to heaven. Sometimes the Root of Jesse (Isaiah 11:1) is shown in the center of the icon's lower border.

There is an old story about a fire which was consuming several wooden buildings. In the midst of the fire an old woman stood in front of her house holding an icon of the "Unburnt Bush." A witness happened to see her there, and marveled at her faith. The next day he returned to the spot and was astonished to see the old woman's home completely unscathed by the fire, while all the other houses around it were destroyed. This may explain why the Mother of God, through her Icon of the Unburnt Bush, is regarded as the protector of homes from fire.
It is believed that the earliest icons of the Unburnt Bush originated at St Catherine's Monastery on Mt. Sinai.

Jesus Christ said, " This is my Body. " You say, " No. It is not His Body!"
Who am I to believe?
I prefer to believe Jesus Christ.  
-- St. Dominic Barberi


We begin our day by seeing Christ in the consecrated bread.
Throughout the day we continue to see Him in the torn bodies of our poor.
We pray, that is, through our work, performing it with Jesus, for Jesus and upon Jesus.
The poor are our prayer. They carry God in them. Prayer means praying everything, praying the work.
We meet the Lord who hungers and thirsts, in the poor.....
and the poor could be you or I or any person kind enough to show us his or her love and to come to our place.

Because we cannot see Christ, we cannot express our love to Him in person.
But our neighbor we can see, and we can do for him or her what we would love to do for Jesus if He were visible.
