Technology will help maritime transport navigate through the pandemic—and beyond in International Shipping News 31/12/2020 Maritime transport is the backbone of the global economy, accounting for over 90% of cross-border trade. And like most other industries, shipping is being rapidly transformed by a range of technology innovations that aim to make operations greener, cheaper, and more efficient. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has upended maritime transport and created unprecedented challenges for professionals across the sector. Against this backdrop, how can we tap the full potential of technology to create a more sustainable, more resilient shipping industry? What are the potential impacts and policy implications?

Batteries are listed, located, and quantified in the IHM. As per ship specific Ship Recycling Plan, the SOPs are prepared to remove and dispose of these batteries. Only trained workers are allowed to remove the batteries. Workers are given adequate PPE, consisting of hardhat, safety shoes, gloves, overalls, glasses, and masks.

Mysterious signal from a ship in the Bengal

Mysterious signal from a ship in the Bengal

posted on: Dec 30, 2020

Defence Research Forum- DefRes 30 December 2020 Mysterious signal from a ship in the Bengal. The Navy did not get any sign of danger even after running three times. MV Elina-2 in danger in deep sea. The Navy and the Coast Guard ran away after getting the signal of danger. In this way three times in three days ‘danger’ comes on Elina-2 ship. Three times the Bangladesh Navy ran to the spot. Navy members take control of the ship. But three times the Navy team and Coast Guard workers involved in the country’s sea security got confused. The ship arranged all kinds of rescue and security to protect the ship but no signs of accident were seen on the spot. So why three three times the danger signal? What’s the mystery behind this – no answer matched. The Chittagong Port Authority is now in a move due to this...
