Antagonism between longtime foes Tehran and Washington has risen since 2018, when President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from world powers’ 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and reimposed sanctions that have crippled the Iranian economy. A U.S. official told Reuters on Monday that Trump, with two months left in office, had asked for options on attacking Iran’s main nuclear site at Natanz, but ultimately decided against taking the dramatic step. The Islamic Republic reiterated that...

A virtual memorial of ribbons on maps of the Atlantic deep seabed could honor the estimated 1.8 million Africans who died at sea during the trans-oceanic slave trade, said a proposal published this month in the Journal of Marine Policy. “It would be on a map … they can’t visit it,” said Phillip Turner, a...

Inland water transportation: Can Sahibganj become the Rotterdam of South Asia? Interestingly, the current focus on encouraging inland water transportation along the Ganges and Brahmaputra only reactivates defunct commercial arteries of yesteryear when inland waterways linked Nepal, Bhutan, India, and Bangladesh, writes N Chandra Mohan for South Asia Monitor By N Chandra Mohan Nov 13, 2020 India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance government has prioritized lowering costs of carrying goods by water transportation. Currently, there is a buzz around multimodal connectivity through road, rail, and river through which goods be transported not only within the country but also to neighbouring countries like Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal. Multimodal terminals built at Varanasi, Sahibganj and Haldia along the Ganges thus enable goods to be ferried to northeastern states through Bangladesh. Bangladesh will find it easier to ship its garments to Indian markets. Landlocked Nepal and Bhutan could have a...

St. Simons Sound Incident response photo. The heavy lift vessel VB10000 began cutting the Golden Ray on Friday more than a year after the car carrier wrecked in St. Simons Sound, Georgia. The St. Simons Sound Unified Command said cutting kicked off Friday at about 11:30 a.m. However, approximately 25 hours into the cut, the chain broke. “There were no injuries or damage to the VB-10000. Meanwhile, responders retrieved the chain and repaired the broken link while also inspecting the chain for any additional fatigue. They resumed cutting operations thereafter,” the unified command said in an update. The Golden Ray was carrying about 4,200 vehicles when it lost stability and grounded as it departed the...

Overworked Seafarers Face ‘Systematic Failures’ in Work-Rest Compliance -Report November 10, 2020 by gCaptain FILE PHOTO: CITL / Shutterstock Seafarers face “systemic failures” in the implementation of the regulations related to hours of work and rest, undermining the credibility of the very regulations meant to protect their rights, according to new report published by World Maritime University (WMU). The report confirms previous research that suggested recording malpractices are widespread in maritime industry, which seriously questions the capacity of the current regulatory framework to prevent fatigue and mitigate its effects, according to the report’s authors, Dr. Raphael Baumler, Ms. Yvette deKlerk, Dr. Michael Ekow Manuel and Dr. Laura Carballo Piñeiro. This is particularly concerning amid the on-going crew change crisis, where many seafarers are serving well beyond their contractual terms and having to take on additional tasks to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the WMU. “The analysis indicates that insufficient manning is the root cause...

Blueprint for Zero Emission Projects from Getting to Zero Coalition The Maritime Executive 11 November 2020 (file photo) The Getting to Zero Coalition, which brings together more than 120 companies within the maritime, energy, infrastructure, and finance sectors, supported by key governments and IGOs, is warning that the maritime industry is running out of time to start efforts to meet the goals to half emissions by 2050.   The organization is launching a new report and series to provide a blueprint for the first wave of zero emission projects for the maritime industry. They believe it is urgent to launch a first wave of commercial scale zero emission shipping projects to test new technologies and business models. “Shipping’s decarbonization cannot be achieved without collaboration,” said Randy Chen, Director and Vice Chairman, Wan Hai Lines and Co-Chair of the Getting to Zero Coalition’s Motivating First Movers workstream. “Forming consortiums will...

Navigating Cybersecurity Challenges in Maritime Operational Technology The maritime industry – including container ships, bulk tankers, drillships, cruise ships, mobile offshore drilling units and the ports and terminals that support them – is critical to the global economy as well as national and international security. The global marine vessels market is projected to reach $220 billion USD by the end of 2026.1 Today, the maritime industry is highly vulnerable to cybersecurity threats due to the integration of previously standalone operational technology (OT) systems, which physically control multiple systems onboard the ship, with information technology (IT) systems that are deployed onboard and on shore. As the maritime industry continues to adopt cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous technologies, interconnectivity between OT and IT will rapidly increase, leading to ever-higher cybersecurity risks. In fact, cyberattacks on the maritime industry’s OT systems have already increased by 900 percent over the last three years. A cybersecurity incident...
