New impetus to Payra Port   August 20, 2019 The Financial Express The news that a Taka 51.50 billion project has been finalised for the upcoming port of Payra must inspire everyone looking forward to Bangladesh’s advancement. It comes as a further bit of fresh air when so many other ventures are also being undertaken around the country. Although one or two important ones are falling behind schedule, the hope is that everything will be straightened and greater speed generated in their implementation. The proposed construction of a multipurpose terminal at Payra with three large berths of varying lengths for handling general cargo, sand and grains should come as a boost to the whole facet of development efforts. Other associated work of building power stations and road-networks and bridges will give an aura of a great leap forward in an otherwise left-behind area of the country. If the proposed...

Dock And Cover: Hiding A Supertanker — Like Iran’s Adrian Darya — Is Easier Than You Think Iran August 21, 2019 By Andy Heil The supertanker formerly known as Grace 1 is steaming eastward in the Mediterranean Sea after six weeks in Gibraltar detention, reportedly still carrying more than 2 million barrels of potentially embargo-busting Iranian crude oil. Iran insists the oil isn’t and never was destined for Syria, which is under U.S. and EU embargo. But U.S. and European authorities appear wary, and U.S. officials who lost a bid to keep the Grace 1 in detention over alleged ties to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) are warning ports against assisting the tanker, now renamed Adrian Darya 1. So a high-stakes shell game involving what’s known as a very large crude carrier (VLCC) has moved to the 2.5 million-square-kilometer Mediterranean Sea. The Adrian Darya 1’s movements are being...

U.S. Warns Against Assisting Iranian Tanker Grace 1 The harbor and anchorage at Kalamata, Greece, the destination broadcast by the Iranian-controlled tanker Grace 1 (file image) By The Maritime Executive 2019-08-20 As the recently-released Iranian tanker Grace 1 makes her way eastward across the Mediterranean, the U.S. State Department is making clear that it does not want to see any nation or entity providing her with assistance.  The Grace 1, recently renamed the Adrian Darya 1 and reflagged to Iran, departed Gibraltar Sunday after the territory’s supreme court ordered her release. As of Monday, her AIS signal showed her off the coast of Algeria, headed for Kalamata, Greece at about seven knots. She expects to arrive on August 26.  The United States and the UK both assessed that the Grace 1’s cargo of crude oil was originally headed for Syria, a violation of EU sanctions on the Syrian government....

World’s Largest Containership Completes Maiden Voyage from China to Europe August 19, 2019 by Mike Schuler Photo courtesy MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company The world’s largest containership, MSC Gülsün, has completed its maiden voyage from Asia to Europe, its MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company said Monday.  AIS ship tracking data shows the MSC Gülsün has arrived in Bremerhaven, Germany after completing its journey from northern China. At some 400 meters long and more than 60 meters wide, MSC Gülsün has a remarkable 23,756 TEU capacity. The record-setting capacity means the ship can emit less CO2 per container carried. Built at Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea, the vessel is the first in a class of 10 ultra-large container vessels (ULCVs) to be delivered to MSC.  In total, SHI will deliver six of the new class of ships, while Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) is constructing the other five, also in South Korea. During its maiden voyage, the ship set...

After Chinese Incursions, Philippines Says Foreign Ships Must Seek Permission By Jojo Rinoza and Luis Liwanag on Aug 20, 2019 Benar News Foreign ships passing through Philippine territorial waters without permission would be dealt with in an “unfriendly manner,” President Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesman said Tuesday, a week after Filipino officials raised alarms over multiple sightings of Chinese warships passing unannounced through the country’s seas. The strong words come ahead of Duterte’s scheduled five-day trip to China next week, during which he has promised to take up with counterpart Xi Jinping the long-simmering South China Sea dispute. “To avoid misunderstanding in the future, the president is putting on notice that beginning today, all foreign vessels passing our territorial waters must notify and get clearance from the proper government authority well in advance of the actual passage,” presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said in a statement. “Either we get a compliance in a...

Credit: Johnny Bugeja/AFP/Getty Images With a new name painted on, the seized tanker VLCC Adrian Darya 1, formerly Grace 1, left Gibraltar bound for the Greek port of Kalamata on 19 August 2019. The news comes despite the United States requesting the tanker’s continued detention. A US official was quoted in The Guardian newspaper on 15 August as saying that the tanker’s detention must continue as it is carrying oil from Iran to Syria, both countries under US economic blockade. “We have an interest in the disruption of both of those, both for our overarching Iran policy and our Syria policy,” the official said. Gibraltar lifted its detention order after assurances from Iran...

Iran warns US against seizing its tanker as tensions flare in Persian Gulf in International Shipping News 20/08/2019 Iran cautioned the US against seizing its tanker Grace 1, which has been renamed Adrian Darya-1 and set sail from Gibraltar after more than a month of detention amid continued rising tensions in the Persian Gulf region. Foreign ministry spokesperson Abbas Mousavi on Monday warned the US against any action and called Washington’s demand to detain the VLCC “illegal,” according to state-run news agency IRNA. Adrian Darya-1 was released on Sunday after being seized on July 4 by Gibraltar with the help of the Royal Marines on suspicion of carrying oil to sanction hit-Syria. Iran denied the allegations and demanded the ship be released. The government of Gibraltar on Sunday rejected a US request to seize the tanker, which was carrying 2.1 million barrels of light crude.

Securing Maritime Assets Demands a New Approach...

Securing Maritime Assets Demands a New Approach in International Shipping News, 20/08/2019 At this moment, cyber-attacks threaten thousands of vulnerable cargo ships, which carry billions of dollars’ worth of goods. Due to the lack of maritime-specific cybersecurity solutions, vessels are highly susceptible to digitally-led hijackings or even ransomware. This threat can wreak havoc on global shipping– the backbone of modern economics. With Artificial Intelligence functionality, future solutions include autonomous safety mechanisms which recognize that they are the sole line of defense. Unlike enterprises or fixed-location systems, maritime vessels face unique challenges due to rotating crews and remote positions. A lack of industry-wide cybersecurity practices has robbed the industry of hundreds of millions of dollars. Turning a blind eye to this danger is an open surrender to cyberattacks, leaving countless openings for opportunistic hackers to infiltrate ships’ software systems. Hijacked ships being held for ransom or run aground into a...
