Coast Guard Collects Lessons Learned from 2017 Hurricanes Google Docs and cellphones were key tools during the USCG search and rescue effort following Hurricane Harvey (USCG photo) By U.S. Coast Guard News 2017-10-10 20:55:29 “Everyone. Needs. A. Phone. Everyone.” “We found an asset tracking/reporting system called Geosuite; we’ve already got it up and running.” “Houston-Galveston T-1 line went down and we jumped to Google Docs.” The Coast Guard swung into full response mode as Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Gulf Coast of Texas Aug. 25, 2017.

Thomas “Andy” Howell, who heads the Coast Guard Innovation Program. “The texts were essentially submissions to the Innovation Program by people who had lost access to the Coast Guard Network,” Howell said. “The next morning I spoke with the co-chairs of the Innovation Council about opening...

Photo: MarineTraffic.com/Sergei Skriabin By Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS, Oct 10 (Reuters) – The United Nations Security Council has banned four ships from ports globally for carrying coal from North Korea, including one vessel that also had ammunition, but the United States postponed a bid to blacklist four others pending further investigation.

The Security Council North Korea sanctions committee, which operates by consensus, agreed at the request of the United States, to blacklist the ships on Oct. 3 for “transporting prohibited items from the DPRK” (North Korea), according...

Video: Salvors Load USS McCain Onto Heavy Lift Ship All photos and video courtesy U.S. Navy On Saturday, salvors loaded the damaged destroyer USS John S. McCain onto the heavy lift ship Treasure for a voyage to Japan. The U.S. Navy intends to repair the McCain at the naval dockyard at Fleet Activities Yokosuka. On the morning of August 21, the McCain was involved in a collision with the merchant vessel Alnic MC while underway off Singapore. Significant damage to the McCain’s hull resulted in flooding to multiple compartments, including crew berthing, machinery and communications areas. Damage control efforts by the crew halted further flooding, but 10 sailors were killed and five were injured. The McCain collision resulted in more fatalities than a similar accident involving sister ship US Fitzgerald, but the McCain sustained less physical damage, and the Navy has determined that it has the capability to repair her at its own Seventh Fleet dockyard...

Iron Ore Producers And Carriers To Benefit From One Belt One Road By MI News Network | In: Shipping News Self-reliance has long been part of Chinese philosophy, culture and policy. But recent moves by Beijing suggest the country is looking to import more iron ore from international producers, rather than use its own reserves. China will cancel about one-third of its iron ore mining licenses, mostly belonging to small polluting mines as part of Beijing’s efforts to improve air quality, the Metallurgical Mines’ Association of China said on Wednesday. Over 1,000 mining rights will be eliminated under the plan, according to Reuters reports. Image Credits: alibrashipping.com The number of iron ore mines in China have dropped from more than 3,000 to around 1,900 in recent years and continues to fall, Peter Poppinga, executive director at Vale said this week. “Some of the mines are even importing some low-grade...

Fifty Years On, Ship Models Continue to Demonstrate Value French engineering firm Artelia is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the creation of Port Revel, its ship handling training center specializing in supertankers, LNG carriers and cruise ships. Port Revel is the largest and most technical lake-based ship handling training center in the world and has no equivalent in terms of its size and technical installations.

The team at Port Revel is in direct contact with the maritime sector and follows the technical changes it is undergoing. Because manufacturers of the full-size items needed to build the model ships do not offer scale models,...
