Inaccurate Stability Calculations Caused Capsizing of Vehicle Carrier Golden Ray: NTSB September 15, 2021 Inaccurate stability calculations caused the capsizing of vehicle carrier Golden Ray that resulted in $200 million worth of damages, the National Transportation Safety Board said Tuesday. The Marine Accident Report details the NTSB’s investigation of the Sept. 8, 2019, capsizing of the roll-on/roll-off vehicle carrier Golden Ray as it transited outbound through St. Simons Sound near Brunswick, Georgia. All 23 crewmembers and one pilot on board were rescued, including four engineering crew who were trapped in the vessel for nearly 40 hours. Two crewmembers sustained serious injuries. The Golden Ray sustained significant damage due to fire, flooding and saltwater corrosion and was declared a total loss estimated at $62.5 million. An estimated $142 million worth of cargo, including more than 4,100 vehicles, was also lost.

Iran’s Maritime Trade Under Pressure Due to Aging Fleet VLCC operated by the National Iranian Tanker Company (file image courtesy Alf van Been) Iran has admitted that U.S.-imposed sanctions have effectively blocked its effort to upgrade its maritime fleet, forcing the country to depend on overstretched local capacity for newbuilds and maintenance. In 2018, citing security risks from Iranian covert operations and nuclear-missile R&D, the Trump administration imposed stiff sanctions penalties on most business transactions with Iran. This has made it impossible for the Persian Gulf nation to order new vessels from top global shipyards in China, Japan and South Korea. The result has been dependence on Iran’s homegrown Hormozgan shipyards, stretching domestic shipbuilding capacity and negatively impacting maritime trade in Iran. “The equipment of the country’s ports as well as our maritime fleet have been worn out due to sanctions and unfavorable economic conditions, and in recent years we have not been able to...

WHERE IS THE ACCOUNTABILITY

WHERE IS THE ACCOUNTABILITY

WHERE IS THE ACCOUNTABILITY F R Chowdhury 13 September 2021 A few days back we read a news item that a Bangladeshi ship was detained in Germany by Port State Control for reasons of safety. In the commercial world of shipping, PSC detention of ships is not a very unusual thing. But the same happening to a year old ship is unusual. If it was owned by a private shipping company, the owners by now would have definitely done their investigation and rectification. In our part of the world there is an old saying “sarkar ka maal, darya mye daal”. That must have happened again. I have to speak and write about it because it affects me and unless we raise such questions things will never change. The ship in question is m.t. Banglar Agradoot is owned by the Shipping Corporation of Bangladesh. This is a state owned enterprise...

Smugglers fake ship identities to evade North Korea sanctions – research report in International Shipping News 13/09/2021 Smugglers suspected of evading sanctions on North Korea have turned to schemes to create fraudulent identities for sanctioned ships, a U.S.-based research group said in a report. Ships suspected of smuggling have long modified their physical appearance or broadcast false position data, said the report from C4ADS, a non-profit group. But the practice of “vessel identity laundering” is significantly more sophisticated and not only undermines sanctions, but jeopardizes the integrity of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) ship registration system, it added. “Given its complexity, vessel identity laundering presents unprecedented challenges for maritime regulators and risks undermining global shipping practices,” the report said. When asked about the report, a spokesperson for the IMO, the United Nations’ shipping agency, said any specific unlawful practices should be brought to the organisation so they could be...

Parametric Rolling Movement

Parametric Rolling Movement

posted on: Sep 12, 2021

Parametric Rolling Movement in Marine Insurance P&I Club News 13/09/2021 The phenomenon known as Parametric Rolling Movement (PRM) can cause a ship to roll at extreme angles of up to 30-40 degrees or more and may in extreme cases lead to capsizing of the vessel. PRM mainly affects modern container vessels and car carriers which have hull forms with flared fore and aft decks. However, in quarter seas, when the sea is striking a ship’s quarter at an angle of 45 degrees to its heading, PRM may occur with other types of vessels. Abnormal rolling of a large container vessel to a sudden and severe angle is not only unsafe and uncomfortable to the crew, but may also result in damage to cargo, vessel’s equipment, collapse of container stacks and eventually loss of deck containers overboard. According to the World Shipping Council PRM contributes to loss of around 1000...
