ICS Chairman Voices Concern about Serious Threats to Global Trade in International Shipping News 14/11/2018 Speaking in Tokyo on behalf of the global trade association for shipowners, the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), its Chairman, Esben Poulsson, highlighted serious concerns about the challenge presented by the United States ‘to the proven benefits of multilateralism and the existing global trading order underpinned by a system of international rules and norms which has brought peace and prosperity since World War Two’. Esben Poulsson, ICS Chairman ‘The view that international trade can be seen as some kind of zero sum game is demonstrably false’ said Mr Poulsson. Mr Poulsson acknowledged that the U.S. has legitimate concerns about the policies of some of its trading partners, concerns which to some extent ICS also shares, particularly with regard to China and South Korea’s possible contribution towards overcapacity in shipping. ‘But ICS genuinely believes that...

BIMCO Adopts 2020 Bunker Clauses in International Shipping News 14/11/2018 BIMCO has developed two 2020 bunker clauses that deal with general compliance and the transitional period for an early December release.

The world’s plastic problem is bigger than the ocean Plastic floats on and near the surface of the ocean. NOAA Christopher J. Preston, The University of Montana As you read this, a strange object that looks like a 2,000-foot floating pool noodle is drifting slowly through the central north Pacific Ocean. This object is designed to solve an enormous environmental problem. But in so doing, it brings attention to a number of others. There are an estimated five trillion pieces of plastic floating on and in the world’s oceans. The massive pool noodle will move through the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, driven by the wind and currents and picking up the plastic it encounters along the way. Ocean Cleanup, the organization that developed the device, promises “the largest cleanup in history.” If it works, the device – blandly named System 001 – could make a dent in the enormous...

Why a strategic port in Iran was exempted from sanctions For the US, it makes more sense to allow India to continue developing Chabahar port than for China to ‘hijack’ yet another strategically important port By Kambaiz Rafi November 12, 2018 Iranian President Hassan Rouhani attends the inauguration of Chabahar port on December 3, 2017. Photo: Iranian Presidency / AFP A port in Chabahar, Iran’s southernmost city, was exempted by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from sanctions, which he called “the toughest ever put in place”, in a move to help a US ally. India has been developing the port since 2003 in a strategic bid to link to Central Asia through Iran and Afghanistan while bypassing its neighbor and rival Pakistan. The sanctions exemption for the port also aims to help the Afghan economy, according to Pompeo, as the country remains the world’s top poppy producer and still relies heavily on international aid....

First fully electric vessels to operate in Canada with Schottel propulsion Thu 01 Nov 2018 by Rebecca Moore Schottel will equip the first fully electric vessels to operate in Canada (Damen: artist’s impression) Schottel has signed a contract with Damen Shipyards to equip the first fully electric vessels to operate in Canada. The new Amherst Island and Wolfe Island ferries will be propelled by four Schottel Twin Propellers STP 260 FP, each with an input power of up to 550 kW. The main propulsion is provided by batteries with a diesel engine as backup to ensure mobility. The propulsion concept implies a power intake increase up to 650 kW due to an enhanced draught provided by the batteries. In accordance with their field of operation in the Lake Ontario/St Laurence River of the Canadian province of Ontario, the thrusters will fulfil the requirements of Ice Class 1A. “There has been...

How to become familiar with the engineroom before joining the ship Tue 06 Nov 2018 by Craig Jallal, tankers and markets editor In an emergency it is vital to know the position of key elements in the engineroom. A new virtual reality start-up could be a life saver “Not all sailors are good sailors” was a comment made to me once at a conference. The speaker was an engineer on a chemical tanker, and he related how when he joins a new ship, it could take him up to three days to get used to the motion of his new working environment. This anecdote came back to me when I attended a conference on maritime start-ups held at the UK Chamber of Shipping. The room was full of bright young things, who were given three minutes to pitch their concepts. One that caught my eye in the literal sense...
