The project consists of two phases, with the first consisting of desktop and bench-testing the Methanol-powered engine employed in the GreenPilot evaluation programme in Gothenburg, Sweden. In the second phase, the engine will be shipped to Singapore for installation onboard a harbour craft vessel for service within a fleet for a six-month sea trial, followed by an engine ‘teardown’ to test clearances and material compatibility.

The costs of the pilot project are estimated at S$200,000 and will cover the installation of the engine, bunkering, training and subsequent sea trials. The data collected will be shared with a number of official observers to help to fill some of the knowledge gaps on Methanol, including its level of fuel efficiency and viability as marine fuel.

“For maritime players in Singapore, the project will be a useful demonstration of the benefits of Methanol as a marine fuel, encouraging them to consider it as an alternative fuel once they gain a better understanding,” says Methanol Institute Chief Operating Officer Chris Chatterton. “The GreenPilot project together with others such as the SUMMETH (Sweden) and Methaship (Germany) projects, have shown that Methanol can be easily adopted as a marine fuel at reasonable cost and without the complexity of other low emission alternatives.”

A team from NTU recently returned from Gothenburg, Sweden, where they spent a week assessing the technical and safety merits of methanol-fuelled engines in commercial applications with ScandiNAOS, Stena Line and Lund Technical University.

The GreenPilot project demonstrated that it is feasible to convert a pilot boat to methanol operation using available technology. Spark-ignited engines with port-injected methanol were found to have engine efficiency similar to diesel engines. Emissions reductions were substantial compared to conventional fuel oil: there is no sulphur in methanol and NOx emissions were reduced so that the engine could meet Tier III NOx emission standards.

Particulate emissions from combustion were 99% lower than those from conventional fuel oil and when methanol from fossil-free feedstock is used, greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced significantly. The results and findings from the GreenPilot project are considered to be applicable for many other types of smaller vessels, which could achieve similar emissions reductions from using methanol as fuel.

“The maritime industry is increasingly looking for more sustainable solutions to help deliver targeted emissions reductions and the prospect of renewable methanol offers a future proof answer,” adds Chatterton. “Methanol fuelled ships can already use existing fuel tanks or even ballast water tanks for storage, thereby lowering the investment risks of newbuilding or conversion, and the regulatory landscape is also moving in Methanol’s direction.”

The regulatory environment governing Methanol as marine fuel took a further step forward in December 2018 when the 100th meeting of IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee instructed its sub-committees to consider relevant parts of the draft interim guidelines prepared by the CCC 5 sub-committee for the safety of ships using methyl/ethyl alcohol as fuel.

The sub-committees will provide their feedback to CCC6 in September 2019 and the interim guidelines should be ready for formal approval by MSC in the first half of 2020. The guidelines provide requirements for the arrangement, installation, control and monitoring of machinery, equipment and systems using methyl/ethyl alcohol as fuel to minimize the risk to the ship, its crew and the environment, taking into account to the nature of the fuels involved.

National Self Storage-Dove Mountain Named 2018 Facility of the Year

Automation and luxury take self-storage to new levels

We are honored to be recognized as an industry leader who truly understands the needs and wants of today's self-storage customer”

— Travis Morrow

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Storelocal co-op member National Self Storage-Dove Mountain has received the prestigious Facility of the Year award for 2018 by Mini-Storage Messenger magazine. The modern and sophisticated facility, located in Marana, Arizona, was named Overall Winner ─ the publication’s top award ─ for all-around excellence in design, construction and technology.

National Self Storage-Dove Mountain, operated by Strat Property Management Inc., offers 62,790 square feet of rental space incorporating the most advanced smart technology as well as design elements modeled after the surrounding affluent Tucson residential community and Ritz-Carlton Golf Club at Dove Mountain.

“We are honored to be recognized as an industry leader who truly understands the needs and wants of today’s self-storage customer,” said Travis Morrow, president of Strat Property Management Self Storage Division.

Marrying the best of esthetics and function, National Self Storage-Dove Mountain blends Tenant™ technology, pioneered by industry co-op Storelocal, with resort-like accents that remove the stark impression commonly associated with self-storage facilities. Renters enter a welcoming lobby containing kiosks for paperless transacting, with onsite team members offering as little or as much assistance as desired. Warm paint colors and street signs within the facility guide the way to a renter’s unit, creating a sense of home and community.

These and many features contributed to National Self Storage-Dove Mountain receiving the Facility of the Year award, Morrow added.

“Technology played a major role,” he said. “Our products were built by the co-op, our way, and we use them to streamline and simplify the customer experience. There are a lot of attractive self-storage facilities, and so it is the technology piece that ultimately differentiates us from the competition.”

Technology is moving the industry
Morrow, also co-founder and current chairman of Storelocal, worked with the co-op to develop its Tenant™ technology platform of products and services. Powered by Storelocal’s global distribution system (GDS), the Tenant™ technology platform has modernized the storage experience at facilities such as National Self Storage-Dove Mountain by providing customers with the same on-demand shopping choices they enjoy elsewhere.

Tenant™ delivers this with a single point of access to every facet of buying self storage, from searching and selecting units, executing leases and purchasing ancillary services. It also includes a modern access solution called SecurGuard by Janus International, enabling tenants to access a unit from a Bluetooth-enabled device, 24-hours a day.

“Our business model is, and has always been, putting the customer first,” Morrow said. “This technology allows us to do business with our customers their way and on their time.”

Strat Property Management currently employs some part of Tenant™ technology at all 68 of its facilities, with additional features onboarding.
