Havyard to Build New Icebreaker for Russia

first_img[mappress]Press Release, November 18, 2013 Havyard has agreed a contract with the Russian shipping company FEMCO about design and construction of a Havyard 843 Ice, an icebreaking offshore vessel.The vessel will be designed by Havyard Design & Solutions in Fosnavaag, Norway and constructed at Havyard Ship Technology`s shipyard Leirvik, in Sogn. The vessel will become newbuild No.122 and is due to be delivered in September 2015.The Russian shipping company has also secured an option for the construction of one further Havyard 843 Ice.Experience with Russia and icebreakersHavyard has gained good experience in constructing icebreakers for Russian shipowners. In 2006, Havyard delivered two icebreaking offshore vessels for the Russian shipping company Sevmorneftegaz (currently Gazprom Neft Shelf).“The fact that we have experience in cooperating with Russian shipping companies and having already delivered similar vessels to Russia, were probably both important factors in getting this contract in competition with other European shipyards,” says Executive Vice President Sales Tor Leif Mongstad of Havyard Group. “We are among the shipyards in the world that have delivered most icebreaking offshore vessels. Havyard has previously constructed 7 icebreaking offshore vessels and this is a third of all the icebreakers that DNV has classified of this type worldwide. Gaining this type of contract proves that we are competitive on price, delivery time and quality.”The 5 vessels constructed by Havyard are currently sailing under a Russian flag, included 2 AHTSs of a Havyard 842 design and the ice breaker “Vidar Viking”.Great expectations for new designHavyard 843 Ice is a new design from the Herøy-based design company Havyard Design & Solutions. The vessel is going to have DNV ice class Icebreaker Ice 10 and Winterized Cold (-30 °C). Amongst other things, the vessel can break ice that`s more than 1 metre thick and has systems for avoiding icing of the vessel. The vessel is otherwise designed to carry out anchor handling, towing and standby operations for oil protection and rescue services.“We also have great expectations towards the market that is opening up with major activity in Russian territories in the north and we believe this contract will make Havyard even more attractive for the Russian interests who are looking for this type of tonnage,” Mongstad continues. “With the new Havyard 843 Ice design, we have positioned ourselves well in order to compete for contracts that the market will offer in the future. We also have other icebreaking designs in our portfolio and we have the ability to quickly adapt our designs for whatever needs the customer may have. We are well equipped to compete in this market and we think there may be similar contracts ahead, concludes a hopeful EVP Sales.”FEMCO Group was established in 2004 and is the only privately-owned company in Russia that has specialized in operating anchor-handling vessels. The company operates a fleet of 12 offshore vessels and with this latest Havyard order; they now have presently 5 newbuild orders at various shipyards.In addition to their offshore fleet FEMCO also operates a fleet of dry-cargo vessels, some of these having ice class.Plenty of workWith this one, Havyard Group has 8 newbuilds and a major conversion on order at the Leirvik shipyard in Sogn, Norway, with an order reserve in the business area of shipbuilding of just under NOK 3 billion. Like the other vessels being constructed at the shipyard, Havyard Design & Solutions deliver both design and detail engineering for the production of the vessel.In addition, Havyard Power & Systems based in Aalesund, will deliver electro engineering, automation- and alarm systems and Havyard Concept Bridge. Norwegian Electric Systems, where Havyard owns 40 % of the shares, will deliver electrical motors, generators and switchboards. The contract will also lead to extended effects within the maritime cluster in Western Norway, in the shape of equipment deliveries and services to the shipyard during construction of the vessel.Main data Havyard 843 IceLength: 86 mBreadth: 19.5 mDepth: 7.75 mSpeed: 16 knotsBollard pull: 185 tonnesAccommodation: 34 personslast_img

Three New Level 3 Dressage Coaches Complete Qualification

first_img 27 January 2017, 19:51 Home  »  General  »  Three New Level 3 Dressage Coaches Complete Qualification The HSI Level 3 Dressage Coach course concluded earlier this week with the final assessments which took place at Hartpury College, Gloucester, UK. The assessments ran over 2 days when coaches were paired up with an unfamiliar horse and rider combination at Prix St George level. Three coaches were successful at the assessments; Ruth Hayes from Wicklow, Gerald Bloomer also from Wicklow and HSI Pony Dressage High Performance Manager and 2016 Development Coach of the Year, Anne Marie Dunphy, from Kilkenny. This course kicked off in November 2015 along with the show jumping and eventing candidates when all coaches attended the first 5 days of the course together. Following on from day 5 of the course, the candidates split into their chosen discipline specific course. The HSI Level 3 Coach course aims to provide coaches with the capacities to train performance riders to compete at the highest level in regional and national competitions.The Dressage section of the course was delivered by HSI Tutor, Level 3 Coach and international dressage rider Heike Holstein who also mentored the coaches throughout the process. Coaches continued their own professional development throughout the course duration on their own time, working with Tutors and polishing their skills before presenting for final assessment this week. On Tuesday (24th January) coaches arrived at the centre and were randomly paired with a horse and rider combination working at Prix St George level. They were then permitted a short time slot to gain as much information about the horse and rider combination as possible. Coaches then made a plan for their initial coaching session which followed, with the ultimate aim of riding a Prix St George test on the following day.On Wednesday (25th January), the coach was required to warm the horse up and prepare the combination to ride the test in a simulated competition. The test was marked and then the coach then debriefed the rider and the assessors on what they had seen and what the long term training plan would be for their particular combination. The assessors were former international dressage judge Angelika Froemming and former international rider, trainer and equitation author Susanne Miesner, both from Germany.Congratulating the successful coaches HSI Director of Breeding and Programmes Alison Corbally said:“Congratulations to Gerald, Ruth and Anne Marie; the Level 3 Coach certificate is a huge achievement. The course itself is extremely demanding with 9 days contact time and at this level coaches will have put in several months of self-development including shadowing and working with higher qualified coaches on their own time across a period of fourteen months. It is wonderful to have three more talented Level 3 Dressage coaches qualified and hopefully it will further assist the growth and development of dressage participation and competition here in Ireland.” Three New Level 3 Dressage Coaches Complete Qualification Tags:last_img read more
