X-Press Pearl Slowly Settles to the Bottom X-Press Pearl is slowly settling to the bottom (Sri Lanka Ports Authority) The burnout-out containership X-Press Pearl is continuing to slowly settle to the bottom off Sri Lanka with the salvage and firefighting teams continuing to monitor the situation while the investigation into the disaster continues. The owners of their vessel also apologized for the disaster while defending the actions of the ship and its crew. A day after the stern of the X-Press Pearl came to rest on the seabed, the bow section of the vessel remains above water but also continues to slowly settle. Divers from the Sri Lanka Navy working with the salvage team from SMIT attempted to inspect the ship but they were forced to call off their efforts due to poor visibility underwater.  The salvage team as well as vessels from both the Sri Lanka Navy and...

The ship carries more than 80 containers of dangerous goods, including 25 tons of nitric acid.Ishara S. Kodikara/AFP via Getty Images A cargo ship carrying chemicals and plastic pellets has been burning off the coast of Sri Lanka for nearly two weeks. Now, efforts to tow the ship to deeper waters have failed – and the boat’s sinking looks increasingly likely. The ship, the X-Press Pearl, was carrying 1,486 containers. Eighty-one of those were dangerous goods containers, including 25 tons of nitric acid. At least one container has leaked nitric acid. Infrared footage over the weekend showed that the fire has mostly died out. X-Press Feeders, the cargo ship company, said Wednesday that it “regret[s] to report that despite salvors successfully boarding the vessel...

by F R Chowdhury 3 August 2021 It has been quite some time that I have not written anything for the community members. Today I write about a subject very important to us. We are very closely connected with it. We all know about it. It is the International Maritime Organization, commonly known as IMO. The purpose of this article is to provide full comprehensive information about it. Many of you may think IMO is an organ of the United Nations. But it is not. As you read this article, you will know about it. It was some time in 1948 that the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) passed a resolution to establish a specialized agency under the UN-umbrella to look after legal and technical aspects of international shipping and maritime affairs. The purpose was to adopt common international practice and procedures so that shipping could operate...

(Photo: AFP) Antony Ruwan Silva, a Sunday school teacher from Negombo, says large quantities of chemical waste from the damaged container ship X-press Pearl wash ashore on the beach every day. Fish and marine animals such as sea turtles can be seen dying and their bodies have been dumped on the beach. “It has already been stated that the raw materials used for the production of plastics will affect the ocean system,” said Silva. “Invisible microplastic particles smaller than 5 millimeters can be ingested by fish and in turn get into humans.” Sri...

https://www.rolls-royce.com/ 28 May 2021 Mapping competence requirements for future shore control center operators by Rana Saha ABSTRACT With increasing interest and investment, the shipping industry is witnessing solid development in autonomous operations of vessels and trans-port networks in various configurations including the Shore Control Center (SCC) concept where command, control, and/or monitoring of ships will take place from the shore. However, detailed competence requirements for the SCC Operator (SCCO) are yet to be established. This study aims to map the competence requirements for SCCOs. Semi- structured interviews were conducted with expert informants (n = 10) from four different backgrounds, including academia, regulatory, technology developers and other stakeholders, who were selected through a purposive sampling technique. Results revealed three key competences to develop: (i) System understanding, (ii) Communicational and technical knowledge, and (iii) Maritime competence. Knowledge of regulations, Navigational competence, and Basic engineering knowledge—will also be required. The discussion also...
