Sanaullah Chowdhury; SALUTE THE DEPARTED SOUL...

posted on: May 12, 2019

SALUTE THE DEPARTED SOUL F R Chowdhury 11 May 2019 I remember late Sanaullah Chowdhury of Atlas Shipping with lot of love, respect and admiration. He was a good friend of mine. He has been laid to eternal rest in Dhaka on 25-April-2019. With his sad demise Bangladesh lost a worthy son of the nation who was no doubt the pioneer of private sector shipping in Bangladesh. When I joined sea in 1963, there was only one ship-owning company with its operational headquarters in Chittagong. That was Pakistan Steam Navigation Company owned by late A K Khan.  The company had two ocean going ships (perhaps named “Fatehabad” and “Jahangirabad”).  To the best of my knowledge the ships operated until about 1969. Thereafter there was no ocean-going merchant ship owned privately by any East Pakistani company. After liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, we had no ocean-going merchant ships. Even the...

Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative: Progress made and future plans – SAFETY4SEA Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative: Progress made and future plans During the 2019 SAFETY4SEA London Forum, Mr. Andrew Stephens, Executive Director, Sustainable Shipping Initiative, presented the Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative (SRTI). Andrew Stephens | Opinions | 02/05/19 The intent of the Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative was launched in March 2018 and consists of members from the SSI and of others outside the SSI. We’re focused on social, environmental and economic sustainability of the shipping industry. The initiative is about going beyond regulation in the absence of the Hong Kong convention being entered into force, concerning the safe and environmentally sound recycling of ships. Shipowners, financial stakeholders, cargo owners and other interested stakeholders, such as Classification Societies  have come together to bring this initiative forward to focus on responsible and sustainable ship recycling principles and practices. It is neither a...

The Daily Star May 10, 2019 Ship-builder eating away Meghna An enclosure being made in the Meghna river for constructing slip-ways of Ananda Shipyard and Slipways Limited. The photo was taken in Narayanganj’s Sonargaon recently. Photo: Rashed Shumon Tawfique Ali In an onslaught on the Meghna, a private ship-building company is constructing its shipyard’s slipways into the river at Meghnaghat in Sonargaon, but the river custodians are doing little to stop it. For over six years since 2013, Ananda Shipyard and Slipways Limited has been running the shipyard, illegally occupying river foreshores and navigable channels. The company does not have the mandatory licence and other approvals. A couple of months ago, Ananda Shipyard put up a makeshift enclosure made of corrugated iron sheets and timber poles, well below the river’s lean-season low water-mark. Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA), the primary custodian of rivers and foreshores within the river port...

Video: 13 Rescued from Burning Vessel in Sharjah, UAE CLICK for video By MarEx 2019-05-08 On Wednesday, first responders rescued 13 crewmembers from a burning vessel in Sharjah, UAE.  The vessel, a small cargo ship, was carrying about 6,000 gallons of diesel, plus 300 tires and 120 vehicles, according to Sharjah’s civil defense agency. The fire broke out at about 0645 hours and firefighters arrived on scene at 0725.  13 Indian nationals were rescued from the vessel and were given medical attention. They were unharmed and none required hospitalization, Major Hani Al Naqbi of Sharjah Civil Defence told The National. The cargo is believed to be unsalvageable, and images from the scene show rows of burned cars on the vessel’s deck.  After visible flames and smoke were extinguished, photos taken by The National indicate that the vessel settled low in the water and listed to starboard as firefighting tugs...

Business of Shipping: Maritime Industry Technology Accelerators May 6, 2019 by Editorial A conceptual design by Rolls-Royce of an 1,000 TEU unmanned feeder vessel. Image credit: Rolls-Royce By Ira Breskin – The staid maritime industry now boasts several technology accelerators, with more likely to follow. The accelerator name is self-effacing. These technology “hot houses” are designed to force feed promising start-up firms that offer the promise of highly-sought, cutting-edge, industry-specific software and hardware. Ironically, some of this technology may have been spawned and nurtured in technology incubators, an older and arguably more familiar enhancement setting Accelerators strive to turbocharge introduction of applied, disruptive, generation-leaping technology to a ready, often industry-specific market. Given an ideal scenario, maritime industry users quickly will embrace this new, high-demand innovation. In doing so, they amply reward bold, risk-taking innovators, early stage backers and technology gurus who molded these “darling” start-ups firms. To date, only...

AMSA: Fatigue a key factor behind improper maintenance – SAFETY4SEA Analysis of AMSA’s Port State Control data indicated that there were 896 maintenance-related deficiencies issued in 2017 and 708 in 2018. This amount represents 13% of the overall deficiencies during 2017-18. Safety | 20/03/19 Maintenance makes sure that a system continues to perform its intended function as per its design regarding the level of safety and reliability. An effective and regular maintenance will result in less machinery failures and breakdowns, which in turn will reduce the rate of unforeseen operational delays and serious incidents. In addition, proper maintenance leads to cost-related benefits of improved productivity and efficiency. However, because of the complex nature of the maritime working environment, maintenance-related issues are often a result of interactions between organisational factors and latent conditions. Namely, a recent study which included 1026 seafarers, identified that over 20% of seafarers reported working more...

Regulation | 07/05/19 The document describes how OFAC may include these components into its evaluation of apparent violations and resolution of investigations resulting in settlements. It also provides organizations with a framework for the five essential components of a risk-based SCP, and outlines several of the root causes that have led to apparent violations of the sanctions programs that OFAC administers.

Oil firms struggle to meet IMO 2020 clean fuel for ships in International Shipping News 06/05/2019 Barely eight months to the take-off of the new shipping fuel regulations by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), oil firms and refiners have begun jostling for significant share of the new fuel market created by the shipping sector.To this end, some of the leading oil companies have introduced new sulphur-content-compliant oil, while others are wooing shipping firms to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) for vessels under the new regime. By The Guardian’s evaluation, the shipping firms appear on top of the game, as they continue to weigh the options; the costs and market implications. The shippers are worried about the cost of shipping. Maritime nations are shaping strategies for smooth compliance. But the oil firms are smiling and working hard to break new grounds.The first in the race is Petrobras (the Brazilian oil giant),...
