Dispersant Application Training at EMSA in Italy

July 15th, 2019
 

On Wednesday, the 5th of June, 2019, New Naval Ltd. (Greece)provided training focused on dispersants application and commissioning of its ScorSpray Arms(YMC-105) system to selected representatives of EU Member States’ Governmental Agencies invited by EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) in the Port of Ravenna, Italy.
When properly applied, dispersants remove oil from the surface of water. The application of dispersant results in the formation of small droplets that are dispersed, enhanced by wave energy, into the water column where they are rapidly diluted by oceanic mixing and converted to harmless products by natural biodegradation processes.

The training provided by senior oil spill response Instructor and technicians from New Naval’s recognized NGP Training Center, (https://www.ngptrainingcenter.com)  included a customized OPRC OSR theoretical dispersant module based on accredited OPRC OSR training material and a step-by-step hands-on training where participants learned how to assemble and operate a dispersant dual-arm application system, the New Naval ScorSpray Arms YMC-105 system being under a 4-year framework contract with EMSA. 

Participants from Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Malta, Romania and Slovenia were provided the scientific background of dispersants, when to select dispersants as an appropriate response technique, the different ways to apply dispersants and how to completely install and operate a dispersant distribution system resulting in a comprehensive understanding of dispersant use to properly and effectively combat an oil spill with this choice of methodology.

Emergency OSR Exercise with Hellenic Coast Guard

June 20th, 2019 

New Naval & the Hellenic Coast Guard Conduct Successful Oil Spill Response Exercise

Greece - On Thursday, the 20th of June, New Naval Ltd. together with the Hellenic Coast Guard carried out a real-time, emergency oil spill response exercise off Makronisos Island in Steno Makronisou, the sea passage between southern Attica and Makronisos that unites the South Evoikos gulf with the Saronic gulf. The location provides a realistic and potential response environment as it is a high-traffic area due to the active role the nearby port, Lavrio, has in regards to marine activity including industrial, recreational and transport thoroughfare.  

The exercise employed state-of-the-art oil spill response vessels, from both response-ready organizations, that in unison practiced on-water advancing oil recovery formations that are extremely effective in response operations yielding high encounter and containment rates of spilled oiled. The exercise included deploying 60 meters of floating oil spill containment barriers, inflatable oil booms, that were then strategically arranged in U and J configurations, formations that are often employed tactics in offshore and nearshore operations where vessels are utilized to move forwards in a purposeful way containing spilled oil slicks before the oil is recovered.
These formations were produced by the vessels working together and operating in tandem to keep the shape of the arrangement. The vessels that partook in the exercise were New Naval’s catamaran-hulled Seaguardian Twin 12 Dynamic Recovery Vessel, a vessel with a dedicated, in-built recovery skimming system that operated in unison with the Hellenic Coast Guards dedicated catamaran-hulled response vessel that maintains on-deck oil boom systems prepared for immediate deployment in the event of a marine spill iident. The configurations were practiced by Captains and the crew of the vessels, spill response technicians who are experienced, trained and participate in exercises and drills in order to be prepared in the event of a spill.

Nikos Koliarakis, Managing Director of New Naval, commented: “Exercises like these are excellent opportunities to collaborate with other professional spill response organizations in a controlled environment that provides a platform to establish and build a successful and positive working relationship. The relationships formed, both the inter-personal and established operational capabilities ones, can ultimately be utilized in an emergency response situation to achieve effective and successful results.”

Successful Installation of TRASH in Kifissos River

March 22, 2019
New Naval has designed and manufactured the innovative TRASH (Tactical Recovery Accumulation System Hellas) for installation in mouths of rivers in order to collect and sustain litter and micro plastics before going into the open sea and effecting the ecosystem and food chain. The innovative system has been successfully installed in the Kifissos River in Athens.

The project is part of the CLAIM program as part of the  European Union Horizon 2020 program with a funding grant towards New Naval in collaboration with the Hellenic Center for Marine Research (HCMR) directed by the R&D team of New Naval.  Every installation is tailor-made and strategically planned in order for the system to operate with the highest efficiency and effectiveness while addressing the scale of the issue. System components are custom-built and designed to properly address the environment, location and river of every installation. Operations generally follow a tested and structured format, with litter removal dependent on litter volumes in the river. This results in minimal operating costs and a reduction of the need for physical attendance by operators for long periods. The system can be continuously operated, monitored and utilized to collect and compile a litter information database regarding the volume of litter exiting the river and the correlations of these volumes to weather and river fluctuations. New Naval's goal is to see the system efficiently take on more rivers in Greece as well as globally assisting in reducing marine litter and micro plastics in the ocean. 

Congratulations to all involved for the hard work and common goal of keeping oceans clean.
