    Successful marine mining vessel repair leads to two more ship repair projects

    The successful repair of the Gariep mining vessel, operated by  De Beers Marine, in November has led to two further ship repair projects being booked for 2021 at the Port of Cape Town, the Western Cape Department of Economic Development and Tourism (DEDAT) said on February 25. The Gariep mining vessel had to be sent to the Port of Cape Town dry dock for 112 days of maintenance and refitting, but required approvals owing to the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions. There was some concern that the project would not be able to proceed and De Beers Marine approached the DEDAT to help it secure approval.

    Rolls-Royce marine AI technology project receives UK funding

    The British Ministry of Defence (MOD) has granted funding to UK-based global major industrial technology group Rolls-Royce to further develop the company’s Artificial Chief Engineer technology. This is an autonomous ship machinery control system, intended to permit naval vessels to carry out long-endurance emissions with reduced human involvement. “Artificial Chief Engineer is a critical enabler for autonomous missions by acting as the equivalent of the engineering department responsible for the health and the operation of an unmanned vessel’s machinery,” explained Rolls-Royce. “Navies intend to increase their use of optionally-manned and unmanned vessels to project power further for less cost by reducing reliance on manpower, allowing higher-risk or longer-endurance missions, and by lowering the procurement and operating costs of future platforms.”

    DPE defends SAA vaccine flight to Brussels

    The Department of Public Enterprises has defended the recent flight by a South African Airways aircraft to Brussels, in Belgium, to collect anti-Covid-19 vaccines. State-owned SAA is currently undergoing a controversial business rescue process. The flight was funded by the South African government and reportedly involved one of the airline’s four-engined Airbus A340 aircraft.  In responding to criticisms that the flight had been a ‘vanity project’ and that it would have been cheaper to use available commercial flights, the DPE advanced two arguments. First, the vaccines were needed to protect the country’s health workers. Second, the flight was a “test relaunch” of SAA Cargo.
