Demolition Market Comes Back to “Life”, Albeit in “Slow Motion” | Hellenic Shipping News Worldwide in Hellenic Shipping News 24/10/2019 Ships’ recycling activity has been the negative “star” of today’s shipping market, with tonnage sold for scrap failing to reach Southeast Asias’ shores. As a result, concerns are bound to be raised on the future balance of supply-demand in the maritime segment. In its latest weekly report, shipbroker Clarkson Platou Hellas said that “with what has been one of the quietest years on record to date, we finally saw a trickle of tonnage filter into the market this week which has started to resemble a functioning market once again. There have even been a small flutter of sales with one large LDT dry unit (see below) in particular catching Owners’ eyes and it remains to be seen whether this is another ‘false dawn’ or that we start to see...

October 22, 2019 by Mike Schuler Unified Command response crews stabilize the source of white smoke on the motor vessel Golden Ray in Brunswick, Ga, Oct. 20, 2019 The Unified Command responding to the overturned Golden Ray in St. Simons Sound, Georgia said the source of white smoke that was emanating from over the weekend has been secured.  Crews will continue to closely monitor the situation with a safety boat and a tugboat equipped with firefighting equipment. Air monitoring around the vessel and in the community has shown no signs of impact. The Unified Command confirmed Sunday that “white smoke” was coming from the overturned pure car and truck carrier. A tugboat was seen performing cooling on the hull as the source was investigated with the use of overflights and surface-level salvage teams.  The cause of the smoke is unknown at this time, the Unified Command said Tuesday.  A 150-yard safety zone remains...

Gard Highlights Issues with Improper Scrubber Installation Last month, a video of what is believed to be a scrubber piping failure went viral on social media (Video still / Contents not endorsed by Gard) By The Maritime Executive 2019-10-21 In new guidance for shipowners, marine insurer Gard advises its members that the installation of scrubber units must be carefully monitored in order to minimize the risk of premature corrosion and potential piping failure. Additional potential casualties from improper workmanship include the possibility of sparking a fire within the unit during shipyard hot work and the failure of poorly-executed shipyard welds during operation. With these factors in mind, Gard advises shipowners to monitor and evaluate their shipyard’s work to ensure a proper installation.  Rapid corrosion is a significant concern for scrubber discharge piping. The washwater exiting the scrubber tower is acidic, and all piping routing the effluent to the overboard...

Threats to National Maritime Security: China and U.S. Federal Agencies U.S. cargo aboard a U.S.-flagged, non-Jones Act vessel (file image) By Denise Krepp 2019-10-21 Last week, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee held a hearing on “China’s Maritime Silk Road Initiative: Implications for the Global Maritime Supply Chain.” Witnesses testified about China’s maritime commercial strength and the decline of the US international fleet. Both are threats to the US national security, and solving them requires some out-of-the-box thinking. While the Chinese government is deliberately devoting resources to building a strong commerical and military presence at sea, U.S. federal agencies are systematically destroying the U.S. international fleet. Exhibit A is the long-delayed cargo-preference rules. In September 2009, I joined the Maritime Administration and was tasked with writing cargo preference regulations.  By law, companies who received U.S. federal financing were required to ship (at the time) 75 percent of the items purchased on U.S....

Credit: MaritimeMT Seafarer unions within the Nautilus Federation are conducting a survey of their members in the expectation that there will soon be a review of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW). It is expected that the process will formally start at International Maritime Organization (IMO) meetings in April and June 2020 following presentations by the global shipowners’ organisation the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), which says such a review would be the most important one yet. It is likely to be towards the end of the next decade before a new STCW is in force. The Nautilus Federation said that feedback from the survey will help its member unions include the...

Fuel Lab the importance of fuel analysis and control in International Shipping News 22/10/2019 Nowadays, due to the climate changes that are affecting our planet and conjointly more recent regulation impositions, people are taking more seriously than ever the impact of fuel emissions and the concern of knowing what kind of fuel they are burning. The usage of fuel and oils Fossil fuels are used in a large part of the items we use on our daily basis. One major use of these products is fuel, for example, gasoline or diesel for cars, HFO is used in vessels´ main engines and for industrial applications, such as jet fuel, heating oil, and natural gas which can be used to generate electricity, among others. Although there is a more recent trend in searching for greener fuel alternatives (like hydrogen, liquefied natural gas or methanol), alongside the benefits there are new safety...

Sampling of liquid cargoes

Sampling of liquid cargoes

posted on: Oct 22, 2019

Sampling of liquid cargoes in Marine Insurance P&I Club News 22/10/2019 Chemical cargoes, petroleum products, vegetable oils and other fats are often carried as bulk cargoes on board chemical and product tankers. Quality problems with these cargoes have been an issue since the dawn of this trade, and even with modern techniques these quality issues are likely to continue. Liquid cargoes on tanker vessels may be exposed to influences such as temperature change, contact with air, light, pollutant, or other products. Other sources of contamination include failure in the production process and exposure to external substances from shore tanks and shore lines, as well as remnants of previous cargoes or wash water onboard the vessel. Cargo inspectors will be present on board the vessels to take samples from the cargoes at both the load- and discharge ports for quality check. However, the examinations are often conducted from the cargo...

Two Shipping Companies Fined $1.8M for MARPOL Violations By The Maritime Executive 2019-10-18 Chartworld Shipping and Liberian holding company Nederland Shipping Corp. pled guilty this week to two sets of U.S. federal charges – the first for their vessel’s failure to notify the U.S. Coast Guard of a leaking hull and the second for presenting false documents that covered up vessel oil pollution. On Feb. 21, 2019, the Coast Guard’s Marine Safety Detachment out of Lewes, Delaware, conducted a PSC inspection of Chartworld’s vessel, the Nederland Reefer. During the course of the inspection, the Coast Guard determined that the vessel’s chief engineer, Vasileios Mazarakis, had been repeatedly tricking the oil content monitoring device on the vessel’s oily water separator using fresh water in order to discharge untreated oily bilge water overboard at sea. Mazarakis falsified the vessel’s oil record book to conceal these illegal discharges.  The Coast Guard’s investigation also...

IUMI Calls for Action on Container Ship Fire Safety The deadly cargo fire aboard the Maersk Honam, March 2018 (Indian Coast Guard) By The Maritime Executive 2019-10-18 The International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI) is calling for action to address the growing problem of container fires. In 2019 alone, an alarming number of cargo fires have broken out aboard container ships, including the blazes aboard the Yantian Express, APL Vancouver, Grande America, E.R. Kobe and KMTC Hong Kong. IUMI recently held a forum to call for urgent improvements to onboard firefighting systems. “Fire-fighting capabilities onboard containerships are deficient and we need to see more headway to improve the safety of the crew, the environment, the cargo and the ships themselves,” said Helle Hammer, the chair of IUMI’s policy forum. While Hammer noted that mis-declaration and non-declaration of cargo is the root cause behind these incidents, she called for improvements in...

In one of the most notorious cases of human slavery that the ITF has encountered in years, three Pakistani seafarers onboard the Iranian-flagged MV Borhan 3 spent 22 months without ever being paid a single dollar.   In a clear-cut case of modern slavery, the Pakistani crew were left abandoned at the Iranian Port of Bushehr, forced to live and endure in miserable conditions, while their pleas for help were continually ignored by the company...

Two Chinese frigates almost ready for handover to Bangladesh Navy SAM Report, October 17, 2019 One of the two ex-PLAN Jiangwei II-class frigates that appear close to being transferred to Bangladesh Navy Two Type 053H3 (Jiangwei II)-class frigates decommissioned by China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) appear close to being transferred to the Bangladesh Navy (BN), judging from photographs that have appeared in Chinese online forums. The 2,200-ton diesel-powered ships, formerly Lianyungang (pennant number 522) and Putian (pennant number 523), have been undergoing overhaul at the Shenjia shipyard in Shanghai and at facilities close to the East Sea fleet’s primary base at Zhoushan, respectively. Pennant numbers F 16 and F 19 have been painted on the hulls of the ships, which are likely to be renamed BNS Umar Farooq and BNS Khalid Bin Walid once in BN service.
