21 Dead in Ferry Collision in Bangladesh

21 Dead in Ferry Collision in Bangladesh Bangladeshi river ferries (file image) A ferry capsizing has killed at least 21 people near the town of Bijoynagar, Bangladesh, according to multiple reports.  The ferry was under way with 50-60 people on board when it collided with a sand carrier. The force of the collision caused the ferry to capsize and sink, putting the passengers into the water. The ferry was near enough to shore that some survivors were able to swim to the nearest bank.  Seven people were injured and taken to the hospital for treatment, according to AFP, and the death toll stood at 21 as of Saturday. The numbers are expected to rise as the search continues, and divers are combing the wreck for remains.  With relatively few bridges across major rivers and an abundance of navigable channels, Bangladesh is unusually dependent on riverine transport. Ferry accidents are...

Part I: Fish Farming is Feeding the World, But at What Cost? Copyright Fabio Nascimento / The Outlaw Ocean Project [This article appeared first in The New Yorker and is reproduced here courtesy of The Outlaw Ocean Project.] Gunjur, a town of some fifteen thousand people, sits on the Atlantic coastline of southern Gambia, the smallest country on the African continent. During the day, its white-sand beaches are full of activity. Fishermen steer long, vibrantly painted wooden canoes, known as pirogues, toward the shore, where they transfer their still-fluttering catch to women waiting at the water’s edge. The fish are hauled off to nearby open-air markets in rusty metal wheelbarrows or in baskets balanced on heads. Small boys play soccer as tourists watch from lounge chairs. At nightfall, work ends and the beach is dotted with bonfires. There is drumming and kora lessons; men with oiled chests grapple in...

IN THE KNOW Podcast 32: The Biggest Risks for Shipping in 2021 The Maritime Executive The container ship XPress Pearl on fire off Colombo, Sri Lanka, May 26 (Sri Lankan Air Force) In this episode of the In the Know podcast, Capt. Andrew Kinsey, senior marine risk consultant for insurer Allianz, joined The Maritime Executive for a conversation about the biggest hazards facing shipping today.  Allianz recently issued its annual report on leading risk factors, and it highlighted dangerous trends that bear watching. The insurer cautions that as ships get bigger, the size and cost of shipping’s biggest accidents will rise, as illustrated by the double-ended grounding involving the 20,000 TEU boxship Ever Given in March. The ocean freight industry’s persistent challenges with cargo misdeclaration, improper packing and container fires also deserve close scrutiny and enforcement, Capt. Kinsey says. And a new underlying factor – crew fatigue from excessive length of...

Its bankers initiated bankruptcy proceedings to recover an estimated $1.2 billion in debt, and the Indian Navy canceled its order for a series of patrol vessels. The...

China’s First Fully Electric Tugboat Enters Service China’s first fully-electric tugboat (Lianyungang government) China reported that it has put into service its first fully electric tugboat, one of a small number of electric tugs in the world. The first electric tug was launched a year ago by a Turkish shipyard while the United States’ first electric tug is not due to enter service until mid-2023 built for Crowley Maritime. The Chinese Yungang Electric No. 1 went into service on August 16 at the northeastern Chinese port of Lianyungang in Jiangsu Province on the Yellow Sea.  The tug uses a lithium iron phosphate battery pack as its power source, which the authorities report can achieve 4000 horsepower, similar to conventional tugboats. The port reports that based on the power output it will be possible to replace traditional high-power fuel tugboats. The electric tug was built by the Lianyungang Port Holding Group’s Barge Branch.

Shipping disruptions contained as Ningbo port nears reopening in Port News 19/08/2021 Chinese authorities are expected to begin a phased reopening of a container terminal at the massive Port of Ningbo by the end of the week if no further COVID infections are detected. And the overall effects on ocean shipping so far have been less than originally feared, according to logistics and freight data providers monitoring the situation. Last week’s closure of the Meishan Island Container Terminal after a worker tested positive for the virus put global supply chain managers on edge over a possible repeat of the month-long slowdown at the Yantian terminal in Shenzhen earlier this summer. That incident caused huge shipping delays and container backlogs that took weeks to reduce. There were 41 vessels at anchor waiting for a berth Tuesday morning and the average number of weekly port calls to Ningbo fell 22% from nearly 188...
