The Russian Register of Shipping published the new edition of the Rules for the Classification and Construction of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk (2019). As compared to the previous edition of 2016, the Rules contain some amendments taking into account the new international requirements.

The revised rules also take into consideration the feedback gained during technical supervision of design and construction of LNG carriers at the shipyards in the South Korea, as well as the Register's cooperation with leading developers of LNG containment systems.

In some sections of the Rules, the vague and unclear wordings allowing ambiguous interpretation have been deleted.

Part IV “Cargo Containment” is also completely amended in the new edition.

For the convenience of users, the part structure is fully consistent with the similar section of the IMO International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk (IGC Code).

The requirements for the application of calculation methods have been added while determining the loads on the walls of the membrane cargo tanks during sloshing. The provisions of IACS UIs have been included.

Updating of Part IX "Materials and Welding" has been performed, taking into account the advanced requirements for the materials used for the manufacture of gas carrier hull structures and members of LNG containment and processing systems.

Port of Fremantle in Western Australia achieves new records after the arrival of two Post Panamax containerships in July. The two containerships calling the port, belong to Maersk and Mediterranean Shipping Company.

According to the port's statement, Maersk Skarstind arrived on July 15, whereas the second one, MSC Elma, is expected to arrive on July 20.

Each vessel has the capacity to carry 9,400 TEUs, which is almost the doubled capacity that most containers that visit Australia can handle.

Moreover, both vessels feature a length of 300 meters and a width of 48 meters.

GET THE SAFETY4SEA IN YOUR INBOX!

MSC Archimidis, which called at Fremantle late last year for the first time, is 17 meters longer than the ships, Maersk Skarstind and MSC Elma are wider, can carry more containers and have a larger gross tonnage.

In the meantime, Maersk's Maersk Skarstind iys the first twin-island container vessel to arrive in Australia.

The port also stated that in the past week, both vessels were arriving in major Australian container ports, as their last Australian call was the Port of Fremantle.

Chris Leatt-Hayter, Fremantle Ports CEO commented

The Fremantle Inner Harbour can handle ships of this size and draft, the biggest container ships calling at Australian ports, and we expect to welcome even bigger ships in the future.

A total of 28 incidents of piracy and armed robbery against ships (comprising 25 actual incidents and three attempted incidents) were reported in Asia during January-June 2019 compared to 41 incidents during January-June 2018, which accounts for a 32% decrease, according to ReCAAP ISC's half yearly report for 2019. Both the total number of incidents and the number of actual incidents this year are the lowest among the 13-year period of January-June of 2007-2019.

Key points January-June 2019

  • Majority of the incidents reported during January-June 2019 were incidents of armed robbery against ships.
  • Of the 28 incidents, two were incidents of piracy, and 26 were incidents of armed robbery against ships.
  • Of the 25 actual incidents reported during January-June 2019, one was CAT 1 incident, two were CAT 2 incidents, two were CAT 3 incidents and 20 were CAT 4 incidents.
  • There were no incidents in ports and anchorages in Bangladesh and Vietnam, compared to the same period in 2018 where six incidents were reported in Bangladesh and two incidents in Vietnam. The number of incidents at Indonesia’s ports and anchorages also decreased to nine incidents from 20 during the same period in 2018.
  • There was an increase in the number of incidents onboard ships while underway in the Strait of Malacca and Singapore. A total of eight actual incidents were reported in 2019, compared to five (comprising three actual and two attempted incidents) during the same period in 2018. All the eight incidents in 2019 were CAT 4 (or petty theft) incidents.

Improvements were observed at the ports and anchorages in Bangladesh, Indonesia and Vietnam during January-June 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. However, there was an increase in the number of incidents (all CAT 4 incidents) in the Singapore Strait.

  • Of concern was the recurrence of one incident of abduction of crew for ransom on 18 June in the waters off Eastern Sabah, Malaysia. The risk of abduction of crew in the Sulu-Celebes Seas and waters off Eastern Sabah is high as demonstrated by the incident. The coastal States concerned are requested to increase their efforts of enhanced surveillance, patrols and maintain contacts with ships transiting the area.

The ReCAAP ISC encourages ship masters and crew to exercise enhanced vigilance when transiting areas of concern and make immediate reporting of all incidents to the nearest coastal State. The ReCAAP ISC urges the authorities to provide prompt response to the reports of incidents.

 

Significance of incidents

CAT 1 - There was one CAT 1 incident reported during January-June 2019. The incident involved the abduction of nine crew from two fishing boats on 18 June off Lahad Datu, Sabah, Malaysia. The abducted crew members were released on 21 Jun as the abductors could have realised that the abducted crew had no money nor anything to give as ransom.

CAT 2 - The two CAT 2 incidents reported during January-June 2019 occurred at anchorages in Indonesia. In both incidents, the perpetrators were armed with knives. In the incident at the anchorage off Pulau Mapur, the perpetrators held the A/B hostage and stole the crew’s cash and personal belongings. In the incident at Taboneo anchorage, the perpetrators confronted the crew with knives and escaped with ship stores. In both incidents, the crew was not injured.

CAT 3 - There were two CAT 3 incidents reported during January-June 2019, and it was the lowest in number among the 13-year period.

CAT 4 - The majority of the incidents reported during January-June 2019 were CAT 4 incidents, and this accounts for 80% (20 out of 25) of the total number of actual incidents.

The improvement during January-June 2019 was also due to the decrease in the number of attempted incidents. There was a 75% decrease in the number of attempted incidents during January-June 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.

Maersk completed its first successful shipped-mangoes operation from Nhava Sheva in Mumbai to London's Felixstowe. Exporter Bombay Exports, exported 21 tonnes of Kesar and Badami mangoes into the time-frame of three weeks via Maersk’s reefer containers that use advance Remote Container Management (RCM) technology and container atmosphere technology.

Maersk highlighted that the success of this shipment opens up a new path towards shipping perishable goods, that in the past would require faster, more expensive, air freight solutions.

Accordingly, air freight cost rose by 25-30% in April 2019, due to the stagnation of cargo flights.

Steve Felder, Managing Director, Maersk South Asia commented

With the difficulties in air freight in the current scenario, approximately 200 metric tonnes of air exports of fruits and other perishables are being impacted every week, leading to a huge loss of produce.

He continued that Europe's increasing demand for mangoes pushed the company to leverage its technology in preserving reefers.

Through this shipment, we were also able to strengthen our relationship with government bodies, including the Agricultural & Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA).

In the early days of 2019, AP Moller-Maersk joined Traxens, an IoT technology developer that launched a device that can track the location of reefers, detect shocks, check temperature and humidity and generate alarms.

Concluding, with 700 FFE’s (Forty-Foot Equivalent unit) exported per year through Maersk, Bombay Exports is one of the largest refrigerated container exporters out of India for the company. In addition, the importer, Ahmed Exotic Ltd. was satisfied to receive the consignment in the right conditions.

UK's Prime Minister Theresa May will meet with Gibraltar's Chief Minister Fabian Picardo on July 17, aiming to discuss the detained Iranian oil tanker Grace 1. In addition to the tanker, Ms. May and Mr. Picardo will also discuss Brexit.

British Royal Marines captured the oil tanker in Gibraltar on June 27, after being accused of bringing oil to Syria, thus breaching EU sanctions.

According to Reuters, the Grace 1 tanker was seized in UK territory, after sailing around Africa from the Gulf. In addition, shipping data shows that the ship was carrying Iranian oil off the coast of Iran, despite the fact that its documents indicate the oil is from Iraq.

The Gibraltar authorities who seized the vessel, proceeded to this action under the authority of European sanctions against Syria that apply for years. However, they made no reference to the source of the oil.

What is more, the Royal Gibraltar Police has arrested the Indian Captain and Chief Officer of the Iranian tanker 'Grace 1', a few days after the ship was seized.

This followed an examination of documents and electronic devices on board, the police said.

GET THE SAFETY4SEA IN YOUR INBOX!

However, UK Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt had informed that the supertanker could be released if the UK is guaranteed the oil is not bound for Syria.

After "constructive" talks with Tehran, Mr. Hunt said that his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, wants to resolve the issue and has no desire to escalate the situation, according to BBC.

Mr. Hunt specifically highlighted to Iran's foreign minister that it was the apparent destination of the oil - Syria - that concerns him, not its country of origin - Iran.

However, the Iranian foreign minister insisted his country would continue its oil exports under any conditions.

In a statement issued after the phone conversation with Mr. Hunt, Mr. Zarif said the destination of the oil tanker was a legal one in the eastern Mediterranean, adding that Britain should quickly release the vessel.

In the meantime, last week London said that armed Iranian boats tried to 'impede' a UK supertanker in the Gulf before being warned off by a British warship.

Britain noted that three Iranian boats had attempted to impede the passage of a British oil tanker in the Gulf, forcing UK warship HMS Montrose to intervene.

These incidents come amid a growing tension between Iran and the West, in light of two different cases of attacks against tankers in the Persian Gulf in May and June, as well as the subsequent shooting down of an American surveillance drone by Iranian forces.

Port of Oakland Commissioners have approved the final permit regarding one of the most anticipated industrial developments in Port history. Namely, they voted last week to approve a vertical permit - industrial vernacular for a building construction permit - at a long-awaited Seaport Logistics Complex.

The developer, CenterPoint Properties, started preparation and ground stabilization work on its 27-acre site during the last nine months and is actively participating in the construction of the 460,000 square-foot facility. Its completion is expected in mid-2020.

GET THE SAFETY4SEA IN YOUR INBOX!

CenterPoint’s $52 million project would establish a logistics campus planned for 180 acres at the decommissioned Oakland Army Base. CenterPoint will build, then manage the first building at the campus. The Port inherited the property 15 years ago and has been planning for its use since then.

What is more, CenterPoint plans to lease the building to tenants taking part in cargo transportation or logistics.

Commenting on the project, Port of Oakland Maritime Director John Driscoll, stated:

We’ve waited a long time to reach this point, but now our future is in view. CenterPoint’s facility will give us logistics capability you can’t find at other ports

The Port aspires to create a campus where containerized cargo will be quickly transferred from ships to trucks or rail. It is expected to increase the volume of international shipments moving through Oakland.

The Seaport Logistics Complex, located in the heart of the Port, just off Maritime Street, near Oakland’s Outer Harbor, is being developed right next to the Port's 3'year'old, $100 million rail yard.

CenterPoint said the project would provide sustainable and economic benefits including:

  • Tenant priority for local and disadvantaged hiring;
  • Eliminating truck trips resulting in reduced waste and construction traffic;
  • Implementing measures to enhance future warehouse working life and safety such as enhanced indoor air quality;
  • Allowance for rooftop solar panels;
  • Using environmentally sustainable construction materials and methodologies.
