Crew real-time location tracking system launched...

posted on: Apr 20, 2018

Crew real-time location tracking system launched Thursday, 19 April 2018 | Navigation, Autonomy & New Technologies Norwegian start-up technology firm ScanReach has launched a new safety system called In:Range, used to locate crews on a vessel or offshore installation in real time. The company says that its technology is capable of sending and receiving data signals wirelessly through any structure, including steel, utilising a combination of radio technology and intelligent software algorithms and protocols. Signals sent from bracelets worn by crew members are picked up by sensors that plug into standard power points. That data is then transmitted in real time to screens on the bridge, and can be shared with emergency services, land-based facilities or nearby ships during an incident. The company says it will initially target the offshore, energy and merchant shipping sectors with the service, though it expects other market sectors and use cases to develop...

 Fuels Green Shipping Pollution Ship Recycling Technology New cooperation aims to measure microplastics in the ocean The Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment and Swedish tanker operator Concordia Maritime have initiated a preliminary study to determine the feasibility of gathering important information on the volume of micoplastics in the oceans. POLLUTION | 19/04/18 By installing a collection device on a tanker, water samples can be collected, while the ship is underway, for subsequent analysis by researchers. The aim is to draw conclusions as to the extent, distribution of microplastics and potential consequences for living organisms. In addition to the Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment, the preliminary study, which is financed by Concordia Maritime, is being conducted in collaboration with the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences at The University of Gothenburg and SMHI (Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute). Plastics are the most common form of marine debris. It is estimated that 8.8 million metric tons of plastic waste are...

BlueWater Reporting ServiceTracker – 20 Apr 2018 Commentary Commentary: PIL capacity continues to rise in 2018 Pacific International Lines (PIL) announced this week that its revenues rose 32 percent in 2017, due in part to its increased container volumes. The Singapore-based carrier predicts continued growth in 2018, citing new vessel deliveries and strengthened service offerings on niche trades. In October of last year, PIL took delivery of two vessels of 11,800 TEUs each, which were subsequently deployed on the Transpacific AC5 service. The ships were the first of a 12-vessel order of Neopanamax newbuilds of the same capacity, the remainder of which will likely sail from the Far East to the Red Sea, in conjunction with the OCEAN Alliance. According to BlueWater Reporting’s Carrer Trade Route Deployment Report, PIL’s overall weekly nominal capacity has shown a steady increase year-over-year since April 2016. As shown in the chart above, overall...

On Earth Day, you shouldn’t feel guilty about your plastic trash David Mastio, USA TODAY Opinion Published 3:15 a.m. ET April 20, 2018  This year’s Earth Day is focused on ending plastic pollution, but the problem isn’t you or me. Asian countries and messy fishermen are destroying the world’s oceans. (Photo: The Ocean Cleanup, via epa/EFE) I may be the most biased writer about plastic on the planet. When I was growing up, plastic was practically a sibling. My father was an executive of Dow Chemical, then makers of dozens of kinds of plastic, including the Saran Wrap most readers have in their kitchen. When Dad saw an interesting piece of plastic, he’d reach out and reverently feel it, saying, “Hmmmmm, polypropylene,” or “I think that’s linear low-density polyethylene.” Though he is long retired from the plastics-industry consulting firm he founded, his love affair continues. He wasn’t the guy who...

Mohammud Hanif Dewan 1,2 & Omar Yaakob 2,3 & Aini Suzana 4 Received: 9 November 2016 /Accepted: 7 March 2018 # World Maritime University 2018 Abstract According to the Third Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Study 2014 of International Maritime Organization (IMO), the total emission in 2012 are estimated to be 949 million tonnes which is 2.7% of global CO2 emission by total shipping and expected to increase from 2012 levels by 50–250% by 2050. Significant changes are needed to all industry by implementation of energy efficiency design and operational measures to meet existing and future global emission reduction targets. Although the fuel cost-reducing effects of some energy efficiency measures and new technologies are well established and matured, shipping companies appear reluctant to adopt them. Besides, it is observed that the stakeholders are directly or indirectly involved for implementation of energy efficiency measures in shipping industry. Therefore, the objective for this...

Are you ready for tanker damage stability control compliance?...

posted on: Apr 19, 2018

Are you ready for tanker damage stability control compliance? Tue 17 Apr 2018 by Craig Jallal, tankers and markets editor Is the tanker fleet ready to meet the damage stability control requirements applicable in January 2021? In 2014, IMO adopted guidelines for demonstrating compliance with the requirements for stability control on tankers, chemical carriers and gas carriers. Waivers are available, but the reality seems to be that vessels need to have loading computers capable of verifying compliance with intact and damage stability requirements. Under IMO’s rules, oil tankers, chemical carriers and product tankers should carry stability instruments and have the appropriate software. The stability instrument must be approved by a classification society or the flag administration and comply with the performance standards recommended by IMO. The loading instrument should have a document of approval that clearly reflects this capability. The guidelines apply to newbuildings built after 1 January 2016....
