    Papendrecht, 25 November 2018

    Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) has been awarded a sizable export cable installation contract for the Ostwind 2 offshore grid connection. The contract was awarded by 50Hertz and carries a value for Boskalis in excess of EUR 250 million making this the largest cable installation contract acquired by Boskalis ever.

    The contract scope comprises design and installation of approximately 270 kilometer of export cable that will connect the planned Arcadis Ost 1 and Baltic Eagle offshore wind farms to the onshore substation in Lubmin, Germany. The project is expected to commence in 2019 with a planned completion late 2022.

    Boskalis will execute this contract in consortium with its partner NKT that will supply the high-voltage cable system. For this project Boskalis will deliver an integrated solution of in-house services including supporting UXO survey, geotechnical and geophysical surveys (through Boskalis subsidiary Gardline), seabed preparation works, pre-lay run, transport and installation of the 220kV export cables and seabed reinstatement.

    Boskalis will deploy a wide variety of its in-house assets including trailing suction hopper and backhoe dredgers, geophysical and geotechnical survey vessels, cable-laying vessels and a wide range of trenching tools.

    Peter Berdowski, CEO Boskalis: "We are very proud to have been selected for this contract, the largest cable installation contract ever for Boskalis. The fact that we are able to combine our dredging services, recently acquired survey capabilities together with our cable installation competencies demonstrates Boskalis' ability to offer a unique breadth of services. We look forward to further expanding this position for our clients as the leading subsea cable installation contractor."

    Boskalis' strategy is aimed at benefitting from key macro-economic factors which drive worldwide demand in our markets: expansion of the global economy, increase in energy consumption, global population growth and the challenges that go hand in hand with climate change. This project is related to the development of generating renewable energy due to climate change and increasing energy consumption.

    KEMP, Texas, Nov. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Larson Electronics, a Texas-based company with over 40 years of experience spearheading the industrial lighting sector, announced the release of a 72-watt flameproof fluorescent emergency linear fixture designed for outdoor, ATEX/IECEx Zone 1/Zone 2 and Zone 21/Zone 22 flammable environments. This IP66-rated unit comes equipped with two, 4-foot T8 fluorescent lamps that operate on 220V AC 50Hz and feature glass fiber reinforced polyester construction with a UV-resistant polycarbonate lens and foam basket.The ATEX-HALP-EMG-48-2L-T8-2X36W-R1-220V flameproof fluorescent emergency linear offers 6,200 lumens of light output in a flood beam configuration with a CRI rating of 75 and color temperature options of 5000K, 4100K or 2700K. This T4 temperature-rated unit can be used in places with ambient temperature ratings between -25˚C and +40˚C and has a lamp lifespan of 20,000+ hours.

An electric inverter keeps one of the lamps in operation for 90 minutes at 3,100 lumens in a power outage situation. Once power to the unit is restored the emergency battery pack will recharge itself, which takes roughly 24 hours if completely drained. Three LED status lights in red, green and yellow are located on the fixture for status monitoring of the emergency mode.

    The ATEX-HALP-EMG-48-2L-T8-2X36W-R1-220V explosion proof fluorescent light fixture features L1, L2, L, N and two PE terminals for completing electrical connections. This light has two, 1.5” (M25) molded plastic/polyamide stopping plugs and a central locking system to protect the internal components. This fixture also features an electronic, internal ballast and two interlock switches that disconnect all poles to the ballast and inverter, as well as turn the power off when the diffuser is open.

    This unit is compatible with various mounting configurations, including ceiling, pendant, chain hanging, angle bracket, pole clamp oil derrick and pole top (no mounts included), making it extremely versatile. This flameproof light is suitable for paint spray booths, aircraft maintenance, oil drilling rigs, refineries, solvent and cleaning areas, gas processing plants, chemical manufacturing, waste water treatment plants, offshore applications and more.

    Despite financial constraints and procedural delays, the successive governments in the state have attempted to implement the slew of recommendations made by the high-level committee headed by former union home secretary Ram Pradhan.

    Ironically, the security experts believe that security at the Mumbai suburban railway stations and along the coastline still remains an area of concern. There has been a deployment of paltry 4,000 police personnel while the daily 80 lakh commuters travel on central, western and harbour railway lines. The CCTVs have been installed in the majority of railway stations but they are not enough to counter terror attacks.

    State Home Department officer told DNA,'' Efforts are being made to equip the law enforcement agencies. Special training is provided in the Pune based Military Engineering College while Israeli technology was also deployed to train them in the detecting bombs and its disposal. In addition to this, police personnel below 30 years of age were recruited in the QRT who are trained to use ultra-modern gadgets like MP5, AK-47.'' He informed that Anti-Terrorist Squad has been established in each police station across the city. Besides, 4,000 new bulletproof jackets were provided after controversy erupted on the very quality of such jackets provided earlier.

    NSG's former director general and former Mumbai police commissioner RD Tyagi said even though the situation has changed quite a lot in the last 10 years, it does not mean that the terrorists cannot attack the city again. ''Terrorists have their own ways to breach the intelligence set up. It is a constant fight between the terrorist organisations and the police,'' he noted.

    The officer said in all 57 boats have been deployed on the 720 km coastline of which 23 are in Mumbai alone. However, the officer admitted that these boats are not enough to chase modern boats if used by terrorists. Two coastal police stations were set up at Mahim and Gorai in the city. Despite the sanctioned posts of 750 in Mahim only 50 are working while in Gorai 120 personnel are deployed. Besides, state of the art Marine Operation Room is operational at Bandra.

    However, security analyst IC Sisodia observed that it is not enough. ''Since the terrorists are becoming sophisticated, it is necessary to technologically improve the intelligence mechanism, upscale electronic surveillance system and communication interception abilities,'' he said.

    AKASOL AG: Sales up 45.1% in the first nine months of 2018· *Sales growth of 45.1% to EUR 13.6 million in the first nine months of 2018 (9M 2017: EUR 9.4 million)*
    · *Order backlog through 2024 at steady high level of EUR 1.47 billion*
    · *Adjusted EBIT of EUR 1.2 million for the first nine months of 2018*
    · *Confirmation of the full-year sales forecast of EUR 22 million to EUR 24 million and an adjusted EBIT margin of around 7%*

    *DARMSTADT / ACCESSWIRE / November 26, 2018 / AKASOL AG ("AKASOL") (XETRA: ASL) (FSE: ASL), a leading German manufacturer of high-performance lithium-ion battery systems for buses, commercial, rail and industrial vehicles and marine and stationary applications, continued to grow successfully in the third quarter of 2018.*

    At EUR 13.6 million, sales revenues for the first nine months of the current fiscal year were 45.1% higher than in the same period of the previous year (9M 2017: EUR 9.4 million). The order backlog through 2024 was at a consistently high level of EUR 1.47 billion as of September 30, 2018.

    Sven Schulz, CEO of AKASOL AG: "Our company was able to continue its announced growth course in the third quarter of 2018. Furthermore, series production for our two major customer projects went into operation on schedule at our Langen plant. We had very good discussions with current and potential new customers in the on-highway and off-highway segment at important industry trade fairs such as the IAA Commercial Vehicles and InnoTrans. We recorded great interest in our battery systems. We were also able to win our first order from a major German manufacturer for fast-charging stations in conjunction with battery system technology. The entry into this business area looks very promising. We estimate that our organic growth will continue to be sustained by expanding cooperation with our current customers and by acquiring new customer projects."

    In the first nine months of the current fiscal year, AKASOL achieved positive adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of EUR 1.6 million (9M 2017: EUR 2.3 million) and positive adjusted EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) of EUR 1.2 million. The adjusted EBIT margin (as a percentage of sales) was 9.0%.

    Costs of materials rose to EUR 6.9 million in the first nine months of 2018 (9M 2017: EUR 3.8 million) as a result of the growth in sales. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBIT in the current year were also affected by the scheduled increase in personnel in view of the start of series production at the Langen plant. As of September 30, 2018, AKASOL had 137 permanent employees (September 30, 2017: 84). Personnel expenses rose from EUR 3.4 million in the same period of last year to EUR 4.6 million in the first three quarters of 2018. Due to the disproportionately low increase in personnel expenses compared to sales, the personnel expense ratio fell from 37.2% in the previous year to 34.2%.

    As a result of the capital increase in connection with the IPO, the equity ratio increased to 88.4% as of September 30, 2018 (March 31, 2018: 11.6%).

    Dr. Curt Philipp Lorber, CFO of AKASOL AG: "We laid our foundation for expansion in Langen and the US in June using the funds from our successful IPO. Since then, we have made good progress with both projects. The production facilities for doubling capacity in Langen will soon be ordered from our suppliers. We are currently planning to have all the prerequisites in place to increase production in Langen from its current annual capacity of up to 300 MWh to up to 600 MWh by the end of 2019 - more than nine months earlier than planned. In the US, we appointed the experienced automotive manager Roy Schulde as Managing Director of our subsidiary AKASOL Inc. in October. Here, too, we estimate that the production site of AKASOL Inc. will be put into operation in late 2019 with an annual capacity of up to 300 MWh and with production to begin in early 2020."

    For the full year 2018, the Management Board of AKASOL AG confirms the forecasts of sales between EUR 22 million and EUR 24 million and an adjusted EBIT margin of around 7%.

    The full report for the first nine months of 2018 will be available for download on the website https://www.akasol.com/en/financial-reports later today.

    *Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) with its partners has been selected as a contractor on Saudi Aramco's Long Term Agreement for Offshore Facilities (LTA) program.*

    The LTA is part of an ambitious offshore investment program and covers engineering, procurement, construction, transportation and installation (EPCI) contracts to support Saudi Aramco's Offshore Maintain Potential Program, Oil & Gas Program, and other offshore expansions. Within the scope of the LTA, investments could exceed USD 3 billion per annum with a program duration of 6 years, with options by Saudi Aramco to extend for a further 3 plus 3 years. Selected contractors like Boskalis have the right to bid for tenders put out by Saudi Aramco without further technical prequalification, considerably shortening the lead time through to award.

    Boskalis acquired the agreement in consortium with the United Arab Emirates-based company Lamprell. Lamprell will focus on the engineering, procurement and construction of offshore structures, such as topsides and jackets. Boskalis will be responsible for the transport and installation of these structures, in addition to dredging activities and specialist subsea activities, including survey as well as pipeline and cable installation.

    This agreement is an important milestone for Boskalis and supports the strategic vision of selective growth towards becoming a full-scope transport & installation contractor at the high-end of the offshore energy market.

    Peter Berdowski, CEO Boskalis: "This agreement with Saudi Aramco marks an important milestone for Boskalis. As spearhead of our strategy we have over the last number of years invested in vessels and people to broaden our offshore transport & installation capabilities. The choice for Boskalis as LTA partner supports and confirms our strategic vision. We are proud of the confidence shown by Saudi Aramco and look forward to working in partnership. In the coming year, we will focus on tendering and building up our local organization in preparation of the execution of projects for the period thereafter. It is expected that the agreement will generate multiple hundreds of millions of euros revenue for Boskalis."

    Shares in Lamprell PLC (LON:LAM) jumped in early trading Monday after it was selected as a contractor for an offshore investment programme run by Saudi Aramco. The oil services firm said under the Long Term Agreement for Offshore Facilities (LTA) it would focus on the engineering, procurement and construction of offshore structures, such as topsides and jackets as part of its bid, which was made in consortium with Dutch marine contractor Boskalis. READ: Lamprell upgraded to ‘buy’ by Numis on pipeline potential despite swing to loss in half year results The LTA covers engineering, procurement, construction, transportation and installation contracts and is aimed at supporting Aramco’s offshore projects, with the scope of investment potentially exceeding US$3bn per year with an initial duration of six years. Contractors selected for the LTA also have the right to bid for other Aramco contracts without further technical prequalification or preselection, considerably shortening the time taken to receive the award. Saudi Aramco is owned by the Saudi Arabian government and is one of the world’s largest companies with access to more than 270bn barrels in crude oil reserves. Christopher McDonald, chief executive of Lamprell, said the award would advance the company’s “strategic aspirations with respect to both Saudi Arabia and the EPCI sector” as well as cementing its relationship with Boskalis. Shares were up 6.5% at 64.7p. Reported by Proactive Investors 3 hours ago.

    As the Arctic undergoes drastic change, sustainable development can help preserve biodiversity

    OTTAWA, Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As climate change alters the Arctic Ocean, opening the newly accessible region to an estimated C$1.3 trillion in investments in coming decades, a new World Wildlife Fund report provides recommendations for developing resources and economies to ensure long-term economic and ecosystem health for both the Arctic and the planet. 
    Getting it right in a new ocean: Bringing Sustainable Blue Economy principles to the Arctic, from WWF’s international Arctic Programme, draws from lessons learned elsewhere in the world on how the principles of a Blue Economy – one that provides social and economic benefits for current and future generations, that restores and maintains the diversity and productivity of marine ecosystems, and one that is based on clean technologies and circular material flows – can be applied to this “new ocean.”  
    The Arctic is home to 34 species of marine mammals, 633 species of fish and 4 million people including Indigenous peoples and communities. Without proper policies in place, the Arctic’s vulnerable coasts and marine species will increasingly come into conflict with industrial activities – such as shipping and seismic exploration – and may be harmed by invasive species, underwater noise and oil spills. WWF is calling on the investment community, industry and governments to take a precautionary approach to the immense economic opportunities emerging in the Arctic.
      

    *R**ecommendations **include**:** *

    · Carefully consider and prioritize climate change risks when investing. 
    · Preserve biodiversity in a warmer Arctic. 
    · Fully integrate Arctic research and Indigenous knowledge in decision-making processes. 
    · Focus on renewable resources to diversify Arctic economies. 
    · Apply ecosystems-based management in the Arctic marine environment. 

    · Strengthen Arctic governance to ensure sustainable development. 

         

    Canada has an opportunity to be a global leader in creating economic growth that doesn’t interfere with biodiversity. Canada will co-host the first-ever Sustainable Blue Economy Conference taking place in Nairobi, Kenya Nov. 26 to 28. 

         

    *Applying **Blue Economy principles in **Canada**:** 
    *The community of Cape Dorset, Nunavut is examining the possibility of creating the area’s first sustainable, community-driven crab fishery. Small-scale inshore fisheries in northern communities offer sustainable economic development, allow for the use of more selective and habitat-friendly gear, and ensure that economic and food security benefits stay in communities. WWF-Canada is working with community members in Cape Dorset on this sustainable fishing project, to determine through scientific assessment the size of the crab population and whether it can support a fishery. Discussions are under way with a second potential partner community in Nunavut.   

     

    *Paul Crowley, WWF-Canada’s vice president of Arctic conservation, says: ** ** 
    *“As the Arctic warms, sustainable fishing practices will be critical in preserving biodiversity. We are extremely encouraged by the potential for a community-based, inshore fishery in Cape Dorset, which compared with other types of resource extraction such as oil and gas development and mining, will benefit the community, and could become a blueprint for sustainable fisheries for years to come. If properly executed, a locally managed, sustainable fishery could provide substantial economic opportunity at a low environmental cost.”       

       

    *Dr**. Simon Walmsle**y, WWF**’s international** Arctic Programme sustainability d**irector**,** says:** 
    *“Climate change is making the Arctic more accessible than ever before. But the Arctic Ocean remains a remote, and risky place to do business. By starting from a premise of sustainability before massive development begins, we can help prevent the most negative impacts in one of the world’s most vulnerable ecosystems.” 
       
    *About World Wildlife Fund Canada** 
    *WWF-Canada creates solutions to the environmental challenges that matter most for Canadians. We work in places that are unique and ecologically important, so that nature, wildlife and people thrive together. Because we are all wildlife. For more information, visit wwf.ca.

    ATHENS, Greece, Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SHIP) reported today the successful completion of the previously announced sale and purchase agreements. On November 22, 2018 the Company took delivery of the M/V Fellowship, a 179,759 deadweight ton (“dwt”) Capesize dry bulk vessel, built in 2010 at Daewoo Shipbuilding in South Korea. The Company entered into the agreement to acquire the M/V Fellowship in August 2018.Furthermore, the Company has completed the sales of two Chinese built Supramax vessels. Specifically, the M/V Gladiatorship, built in 2010 at CSC Jinling Shipyard, was delivered to its new owners on October 11, 2018 and the M/V Guardianship, built in 2011 at the same yard, was delivered to its new owner on November 19, 2018.

    The acquisition of the M/V Fellowship was financed by a combination of cash on hand and a senior loan facility. The existing lender of the two sold Supramax vessels agreed to rollover the underlying loan amount by funding the acquisition of the M/V Fellowship on substantially the same terms.

    The M/V Fellowship is currently on time-charter to a major European charterer at a gross daily rate of $17,150, with latest redelivery in January 2019.
