The Real Story Behind Youtube’s Most Epic Ship Collision Video May 16, 2018 by gCaptain On September 29, 2014, the 324-meter containership Colombo Express lost control and slammed into the side of the similarly-sized Maersk Tanjong during a transit of the Suez Canal, resulting in what has become one of Youtube’s most epic ship collision videos. The incident occurred when the Maersk Tanjong was clearing the Suez Canal Container terminal on the north end of the canal to join a second convoy, while the Colombo Express was already proceeding through at the same point, shipping sources confirmed at the time. The collision caused a 20-meter dent to the Colombo Express’ port bow and three containers were knocked from Maersk Tanjong, but no injuries or major environmental damage occurred as a result. Colombo Express Damage The cause of the collision has not been publicly disclosed, however, an AIS replay of the collision...

China’s Play for Bases in the Indian Ocean...

China’s Play for Bases in the Indian Ocean Hambantota, Sri Lanka (file image) By The Lowy Interpreter 2018-05-15 [By David Brewster] China is moving to establish a network of naval and air bases in the Indian Ocean to support its growing strategic imperatives in the region. This likely includes plans to build bases in the eastern Indian Ocean. In July 2017, China opened its first overseas military base in Djibouti, and Beijing is currently in negotiations with Pakistan to establish an additional base at or near Gwadar on the Arabian Sea. But it will not be enough for China to only have capabilities in the north-west Indian Ocean. China’s strategic imperatives, and the Indian Ocean’s distance from Chinese territory, mean that Beijing will likely see a need to develop a network of military facilities of various types across the ocean, including in its central/eastern zone. Chinese naval presence in the Indian Ocean is forecast to grow...

Grounding: Practices Impacted by Small Bridge Team...

posted on: May 16, 2018

Grounding: Practices Impacted by Small Bridge Team The U.K. Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) has released its report into the grounding of the general cargo vessel Islay Trader highlighting the importance of planning when going to anchor and the requirement for ensuring that an effective watch is kept whilst at anchor. During the morning of October 8, 2017, the Islay Trader began dragging its anchor, and the ship’s officer of the watch attempted to reposition the vessel without the assistance of the master. The officer subsequently became overwhelmed, uncertain of the ship’s position and the vessel grounded near Margate beach. The vessel re-floated approximately 12 hours later. There were no injuries and no pollution. The investigation showed that the vessel dragged its anchor because the length of anchor cable used was insufficient in the tidal conditions experienced. The chief officer did not monitor the vessel’s position and was not...

China’s Secretive Home-Built Aircraft Carrier Sets Out for Sea Trials May 13, 2018 by Reuters China’s first domestically built aircraft carrier is seen during its launching ceremony in Dalian, Liaoning province, China, April 26, 2017. REUTERS/Stringer BEIJING, May 13 (Reuters) – China’s first domestically developed aircraft carrier left its northeastern port to begin sea trials on Sunday, state media said, the latest milestone in the country’s efforts to modernise its military. The still-unnamed carrier was launched this time last year but since then has been undergoing fitting of weapons and other systems and has not yet entered service. The official Xinhua news agency confirmed the ship had left for trials with a short announcement. Other state news outlets showed undated photos of a fog-shrouded carrier just off of its dock. “Our country’s second aircraft carrier set sail from its dock in the Dalian shipyard for relevant waters to conduct a sea...

Photo: MarineTraffic.com / Yevgeniy B  By Cagan Koc, Isis Almeida and Anatoly Medetsky (Bloomberg) — A ship carrying Russian wheat to Yemen was hit by a missile last week near its destination, highlighting the risk of supplying a market that’s embroiled in a conflict. The missile exploded Thursday inside the hold of the Ince Inebolu, which was carrying about 50,000 metric tons of wheat and anchored 70 miles (113 kilometers) off the coast of Yemen, according to Istanbul-based Ince Shipping Group, the vessel owner. The captain reported no casualties and the wheat wasn’t damaged. It’s unclear who fired the missile. (Note: Reuters reported Sunday that it was unable to confirm whether the explosion was caused by a missile or something else, like equipment that overheated. See...

REUTERS/Amit Dave/Files  By Jonathan Saul and Simon Jessop LONDON, May 15 (Reuters) – The shipping industry has long been criticized by campaigners for allowing vessels to be broken up on beaches, endangering workers and polluting the sea and sand. Now, it is being called to account from a quarter that may have a bit more clout – its financial backers. Norway’s $1 trillion Oil Fund, a leader in ethical investing, in February sold its stake in four firms because they scrap on the beach. Three of the firms excluded by Norway’s fund – Taiwan’s Evergreen Marine, Precious Shipping and Thoresen Thai Agencies (TTA) of Thailand – say they have been unfairly singled...

The sites provide tangible archaeological evidence for use of the historic Roaring 40s trade route for ships between Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, India, Southeast Asia, China and Japan. The Western Australian Museum was asked by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) to analyse sonar and video data taken in international waters by the search vessels Fugro Equator and Havilah Harmony in May and December 2015.

Thinking outside the boxThe global logistics business is going to be transformed by digitisation This will be bad news for some Print edition | Briefing Apr 26th 2018 | COPENHAGEN, ROTTERDAM AND SINGAPORE   THE Munich Maersk, which entered service in June 2017, is a testament to the technological marriage of information and transportation. Its bridge looks like a very spacious cockpit. Packed with computer screens, it is all glass, no brass—with a wheel that looks more like a pilot’s control column. Sailing her 214,000 tonnes from port to port takes a crew of just 28. Loading and unloading the 20,000 containers she carries only needs the supervision of one crew member. The Munich Maersk, though, is a high-end exception—one of the best ships in the up-to-the-minute fleet of the biggest shipping company in the world. It shows what can be done. But at the moment the industry’s big...

MAIB Investigation Report: Cargo Ship ‘Islay Trader’ Grounded After Dragging Anchor May 10, 2018 by gCaptain The UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) has released its report on the investigation into last year’s grounding of the general cargo ship Islay Trader off Margate, England, finding that poor navigational and bridge watchkeeping practices contributed to the incident. The Barbados-flagged Islay Trader grounded on the morning of October 8, 2017 near the seaside town of Margate in Kent after dragging anchor, the MAIB found. According to the MAIB, shortly after 9 p.m. on the night before the grounding, the Islay Trader anchored in Margate Road where the master intended the vessel would remain overnight before commencing passage to Antwerp, Belgium the following morning. Less than two hours after anchoring, the master handed over the bridge anchor watch to the chief officer and went to bed. Just before 2 a.m. the following morning, the...
