U.S. Yet to Finalize National Maritime Strategy Addressing Challenges to U.S.-Flag Fleet, GAO Says December 7, 2018 by gCaptain File photo The U.S. Department of Transportation is yet to finalize national maritime strategies that were called were called for in two separate mandates by Congress in 2014, delaying providing decision-makers the information they needed to address challenges facing the U.S. flag fleet, the GAO said in a report. The strategy, which was originally due to be completed in 2015, is intended to address how to make U.S.-flag vessels more competitive in the international market, as well as how to ensure the long-term viability of U.S.-flag vessels and U.S.-citizen mariners. The Department of Defense (DOD) counts on U.S.-citizen mariners that work on U.S.-flag vessels to crew the government-owned reserve fleet during a crisis or military activation. In an August 2018 report, GAO concluded that by not completing the strategy or establishing a timeline for completing...

Modernising ship reporting systems – Council agrees its stance on a maritime single window in International Shipping News 05/12/2018 Every time a ship stops at a port, it needs to fulfil a number of reporting obligations. The Council reached a general approach on a proposal to bring together all reporting formalities associated with a port call, under a system called a European maritime single window. A single reporting window for ships will significantly reduce the administrative burden on maritime transport. We are creating conditions for increased application of the once-only principle, so that ships would only need to report once per port call and the same information would be reused for subsequent port calls within the EU. Norbert Hofer, Minister for Transport, Innovation and Technology of Austria, President of the Council The European maritime single window environment will address the issue of numerous, non-harmonised reporting obligations by linking the...

Standardization of port call data one step closer in Port News 05/12/2018 Following a successful Industry Input Workshop in May 2018, on 29 November the second Industry Input Workshop was held to discuss and agree on global data standards (GDS) for port call data, allowing machines to understand each other. E.g. to connect the berth planning of the terminal to the navigation information of the ship. Earlier, in September 2017, the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office [UKHO] and the International Harbour Masters Association [IHMA] released an intermediate publication for the functional definitions for port call data, allowing humans to understand each other. The scope of port call data includes vessel – berth compatibility (safe port) information, and information related to availability of berth, fairway, nautical and vessel services, with the aim to bring existing international industry standards together, allowing for quick endorsement and implementation.

Scrubber lobby on the defensive after Singapore ban The debate over open or closed loop scrubbers is now a political question, rather than a scientific one. The industry scrubber lobby is now arguing against what it says are ‘arbitrary restrictions, unsupported by any science that impacts the business and operations of hundreds of global shipping companies and thousands of vessels’ 03 Dec 2018 Richard Meade @Lloydslisted richard.meade@informa.com Several shipowners now expect further restrictions on open-loop scrubbers, despite manufacturers insisting that environmental concerns have not been scientifically addressed Singapore, which is home to the world’s top ship refuelling or bunkering hub, will ban the discharge of ‘wash water’ used in ships to scrub engine exhaust. SHIPOWNERS and scrubber manufacturers are preparing to step up lobbying efforts to defend the use of open-loop scrubbers in the wake of Singapore’s decision last week to ban the exhaust gas cleaning system in the...

As Oil Prices Plunge, China Is Grabbing Every Cargo It Can Get in Freight News 03/12/2018 As oil prices plunge, there are plenty of signs that China is buying the dip — and in potentially large volumes — if shipping and trade data are any guide. Here’s some evidence to suggest the world’s biggest source of incremental demand growth for oil has ramped up imports — and that its buying remains undimmed. 1. Imports Data The first, and perhaps most authoritative, piece of information comes from the country itself. Inflows last month were the highest for the time of year in customs data starting in 2004. One downside to the data is that they’re backward looking. Another is that China’s imports have tended to trend higher in recent years anyway. 2. West African Feast So backward-looking data from the Chinese government aren’t your thing? No matter. Just look at...

Once again; we are hearing the hurdles our officers and crews are going through in signing on/off from vessels in many countries on account denial of visas. Looks like fast development of Bangladesh did not trickle down to the ordinary people. We created a lot of rich people and fat politicians who are too busy filling their pockets and trying to run again for the parliament. Our Shipping Minister should have resigned a long time ago as he is incapable to taking care of the ordinary sailors who are facing degrading situations in foreign countries. We should demand to the government to appoint people who can do the job at the top and not just having people for political expediency. Here is letter from Capt. Md. Nuruzzaman Sikdar/ 35N that tells about one incident. One incident too many. Sent: Saturday, December 1, 2018 2:28 AM To: bdmariners@googlegroups.com Cc: gen.secretary@bmmoa.org...

Fuel Contamination: What went wrong in Houston?...

What went wrong in Houston? Mon 26 Nov 2018 by Selwyn Parker Houston bunkering contagion – investigators still searching for a definitive explanation The investigation into what caused the contamination of fuel in the Houston area earlier this year has so far come up empty handed, with the seemingly random nature of those affected adding confusion to the task The latest investigation into problems encountered by vessels that used residual fuels bunkered in the Houston area earlier this year has failed to come up with an explanation as to why some vessels were unaffected, while others suffered a wide variety of problems, some of them serious. The International Council on Combustion Engines (CIMAC), organised by the International Bunk Industry Association, remains baffled and investigations are continuing. But as more evidence emerges, the extent of the problem only grows. A number of ships had to resort to tows when their...
