What happens when you vet the vetting process?...

posted on: Dec 4, 2017

What happens when you vet the vetting process? Wed 29 Nov 2017 by Edwin Lampert The vetting session at November’s Tanker Shipping & Trade Conference surpassed last year’s discussion in terms of volume and range of questions as well as the intensity of debate. Oman Shipping Company’s chief operating officer Capt David Stockley was both forthright and contrite in his analysis. “I think the overall view of the industry, and I was part of the industry, I was a SIRE inspector, is that the SIRE inspector is right and everybody else is wrong. If only one person has been disciplined [by CDI] in five years either [CDI has] such a high standard and the owners don’t know what they are talking about or the system is not good enough. I would suggest the reason there is only one is because not enough owners complain and the reason they don’t...

Captain McGee and Captain Phillips were surrounded by a towering wall of burning fuel when the ship they were piloting burst into flames in the Houston Ship Channel....

The Vanishing Submarine: Hope And The ARA San Juan December 1, 2017 By Binoy Kampmark “Once a submariner, always a submariner.” -— Douglas Renken, Canadian submariner, CBC, Nov 26, 2017 A certain type of grief and moroseness accompanies deaths at sea. Not being naturally adapted to living in water, humankind has braved the aqueous environment, seeking to conquer it and tame its residents. At sea, the great battles of mythology are waged, its stories echoed in literary canons. Captain Ahab will pursue with fanatical fury Moby-Dick. Between sea and humanity, there will be a reckoning. The vanishing act of the Argentine diesel-electric submarine ARA San Juan with its 44 crew would have sent a shudder of communal feeling through the navies of the world. The fate of the Russian nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine Kursk in 2000 and its...

‘Extremely Active’ 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Comes to a Close – Here’s the Full Season in One Four-Minute Video November 30, 2017 by gCaptain PHOTO-GOES 16 full disk image of hurricanes Katia, Irma and Jose captured September 8 2017. Image credit: NOAA Thursday marked the official end of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, which spans from June 1 to November each year. The 2017 season produced 17 named storms of which 10 became hurricanes including six major hurricanes (greater than Cat 3) – including the first two major hurricanes to hit the continental U.S. in 12 years. According to NOAA, 2017 marked the seventh most active season since records began in 1851, and the most active season 2005. This claim is based on the Accumulated Cyclone Energy index, which measures the combined intensity and duration of the storms during the season and is used to classify the strength of the entire hurricane...

Maersk Line Completes Hamburg Süd Acquisition November 30, 2017 by gCaptain Photo: Maersk Line Danish shipping giant Maersk says it has completed its acquisition of German rival Hamburg Süd in a deal valued at approximately $4 billion. The close of the deal comes exactly one year after Maersk Line announced its intention to acquire the smaller shipping line from Oetker Group. The acquisition triggered a regulatory approval process spanning 23 jurisdictions, which concluded Tuesday with the approval of the acquisition by the Korea Fair Trade Commission. Together, Maersk Line and Hamburg Süd will have a total container capacity of 4.15 million TEU and a 19.3% global fleet capacity share, according to Alphaliner data. A total of 105 Hamburg Süd vessels will be integrated into the fleet of Maersk Line, growing Maersk’s fleet to a total of 772 vessels either owned or chartered. Operational synergies are estimated in the region of $350...

COSCO Takes Biggest Container Line Title from Maersk...

COSCO Takes Biggest Container Line Title from Maersk November 29, 2017 by The Loadstar By Mike Wackett (The Loadstar) – A 23% increase in containers lifted allowed Cosco to steal the top spot from Maersk Line in the third quarter. The Chinese carrier loaded 5.49 million teu, compared with the Danish carrier’s 5.26m. According to Alphaliner’s liftings league table, the Chinese line loaded 23% more containers in Q3 than in the same period of 2016, whereas Maersk carried 2.4% fewer, its booking systems temporarily stymied by a cyber attack in the summer that caused a 12-day IT shutdown. Maersk chief executive Soren Skou revealed that the carrier’s liftings in the first two weeks of July slumped as shippers booked cargo with its competitors. Nevertheless, even allowing for a loss of say 200,000 teu, Maersk would probably still have been toppled from its long-held position as the biggest carrier by volume. And...

USS Fitzgerald Returns to Base with New Damage from Heavy Lift November 28, 2017 by Mike Schuler TOKYO BAY, Japan – The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) is loaded aboard the heavy lift transport MV Transshelf. The departure of the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) from Japan has been delayed after the destroyer was damaged by the heavy lift vessel on which it is loaded. According to the U.S. Navy, Fitzgerald returned to the Fleet Activities (FLEACT) Yokosuka base to repair two punctures in her hull caused by the heavy lift vessel’s steel support structure during the loading process. The Navy says repairs are expected to extend the loading process by a few days, after which Transshelf will transport Fitzgerald to Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) in Pascagoula, Mississippi where the destroyer will undergo repairs to fix damage from its collision with a merchant vessel in June. Fitzgerald...

Argentine Navy: Water Entered Missing Sub’s Snorkel November 27, 2017 by Reuters ARA San Juan seen at its home base of Naval Base Mar del Plata. Photo: By Hugh Bronstein BUENOS AIRES, Nov 27 (Reuters) – Water entered the snorkel of the Argentine submarine ARA San Juan, causing its battery to short-circuit before it went missing on Nov. 15, a navy spokesman said on Monday as hope dwindled among some families of the 44-member crew. The San Juan had only a seven-day oxygen supply when it lost contact, and a sudden noise was detected that the navy says could have been the implosion of the vessel. Ships with rescue equipment from countries including the United States and Russia were nonetheless rushing to join the search. Before its disappearance, the submarine had been ordered back to its Mar del Plata base after it reported water had entered the vessel through its snorkel, causing...
