MESSAGE FROM CAPT. M A JALIL, PRESIDENT BMAAA 5 December 2019 Assala-Mu-Alaikum. It is me and our unification team’s pleasure to present you all with a unified alumni  ‘Bangladesh Marine Academy Alumni Association’ (BMAAA). The concept of forming an alumni association was conceived as far back as 2005 but it took various routes and after crossing lot of hurdles leaders of both associations set down in good faith, which culminated in this unified body. An alumni association is an association of former students and in our case, cadets who graduated from BMA. I urge the alumnus to join hands and put their resources together and vigorously pursue activities that will benefit our great institution and the cadets who study there and eventually will graduate from there. Additionally, we must help create a legacy that will be emulated by the generations of cadets who will pass through this academy in the future....

Ships Stuck Waiting for Fuel in Singapore Ahead of Low Sulphur Switch November 29, 2019 by Bloomberg Photo: By Alexander Zamaraev / Shutterstock By Ann Koh and Firat Kayakiran (Bloomberg) — Ship owners are waiting longer and paying more to refuel at the Asian hub of Singapore as the industry scrambles to prepare for the implementation of new ship-fuel rules in just a few weeks. The availability of refueling barges has dwindled as their tanks are scoured so that they will be able to carry cleaner-burning fuels compliant with the new rules, known as IMO 2020, that take effect Jan. 1. It’s taking about two weeks to book a barge instead of the usual five days, according to shipping companies and brokers who didn’t want to be identified because they aren’t authorized to speak to the media. The ship owners said they were also being asked to pay more due to the...

ICS welcomes decision by the Government of India to embrace The Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships (HKC) in International Shipping News 30/11/2019 The Indian government has ratified the HKC, significantly increasing the likelihood of its entry into force.

IMO 2020 Enforcement: Magic Pipe Cases All-Over Again? in International Shipping News,Shipping: Emission Possible 28/11/2019 The shipping industry is well aware of the fines and penalties imposed by US authorities against vessel owners, operators and officers for alleged bypasses of a vessel’s oily-water-separator (“OWS”), which is required pollution control equipment under Annex I of MARPOL—the international treaty governing environmental compliance and pollution control on the high seas. In these so-called “magic pipe” cases, the US Department of Justice brought a number of successful criminal prosecutions, with several convictions that included fines in excess of $10 million. Now the US government is poised to use the same legal regime to prosecute violations of the upcoming sulfur emission reduction mandate under Annex VI of MARPOL, otherwise known as IMO 2020. By now, almost everyone knows that on January 1, 2020, ocean-going vessels will need to utilize bunker fuel with a sulfur content of...
