New Bridge Organisation Increases Safety & Efficiency
On 30 April 2015 Carnival Corporation & Plc, owner of nine cruise companies such as Holland America Line, AIDA Cruises and P&O Cruises, organised a press conference to showcase the building of their new training centre in Almere in which they expect to train over 6,500 officers annually. Strikingly, the way Carnival officers are trained is not the traditional way.
Captain Hans G. Hederström, managing director of CSMART (Center for Simulator Maritime Training), explains this new way of training: “Traditional training and bridge organisation are based on someone’s rank, ours are based on function. Therefore, we have introduced four new control functions in place at the bridge. Firstly, there is the navigator, who is basically responsible for navigating the vessel. Next to him, there is a co-navigator, whose main task is to execute the command given by the navigator. Furthermore, in more complex navigational situations an operations director and administrator will amongst others be present on the bridge.”
World s First Gas Turbine-Powered LNG Carrier Gets Approval in Principle
South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has received Approval in Principle (AIP) from Lloyd’s Register for the world’s first gas turbine-powered 174,000 m3 LNG carrier, developed jointly with GE Aviation and Marine (GE).
The IMO Tier III-compliant 174,000 m3 LNG carrier is equipped with GE’s gas turbine-based Combined Gas turbine Electric and Steam system (COGES 2.0).
The vessel is expected to save shipowners or operators an estimated USD 17.83 million on the assumption that the LNG carrier operates for 20 years with an annual operating cost of USD 720,000, since it does not need additional equipment to handle exhaust emissions.
The gas turbine-powered engine is 60 percent lighter than conventional engines and will lower operating and maintenance costs accordingly, HHI says.
Durability and low vibration/noise of the engine are also test-proven over 70 million hours of application on offshore platforms, onshore power plants, and high-speed ferryboats.
Port of Durban Unsafe for Ships?
South Africa’s Port of Durban has been put under a spotlight amid recent groundings at the harbour entrance which might render the port unsafe for ships once the cause of the said incidents is investigated.
Groundings have become frequent since September 2014, with two most recent ones, that of MV Pacific Quartz which touched the north breakwater and MV ER Elsfleth which touched bottom in early December, further intensifying concerns.
The grounding of MV ER Elsfleth raised the alarm that there appears to be a sand bar forming across the harbour entrance, marine insurer company Skuld informed.
The port authorities are investigating the incidents, however, according to Skuld, the most pertinent cause of the groundings that has reemerged relates to lack of proper dredging of the entrance channel and the removal of silt from the South breakwater.
“The harbour master is expected to publish a report shortly on the issue of dredging as there may have already been a number of previous groundings in the port. As a result of these groundings, the port reduced the under keel clearance in Durban by 30 cm as reported in a previous loss prevention notice dated 30 September 2014,” Skuld said.
Daily Voice Leaders: Brian Davis, New President, CEO Of Maritime Aquarium - The Daily Voice
NORWALK, Conn. – Maritime Aquarium President Brian Davis has always felt a connection to the ocean, and wants visitors to the aquarium in Norwalk to feel that same connection and be inspired to preserve the waters of the world and their ecosystems.
Davis joined the Maritime Aquarium as president and CEO in December. Prior to coming to Norwalk, he served as the vice president of Education and Training at the Georgia Aquarium. He has also worked at the New York Aquarium, Zoo Atlanta and in several school systems across the country.
He said that aquarium’s backdrop on the Norwalk River and the historic nature of the institution were a big draw to him, but even more so were the staff and volunteers at the Maritime Aquarium.
“They want to continue to move the organization in a new and exciting direction, and that’s made the transition enjoyable and exciting. They’re very much on board with seeing something new and continuing to give back to the community of Norwalk,” Davis told Daily Voice.

The Port of Rotterdam is Europe’s largest sea port, and it boasts excellent accessibility for sea-going vessels, intermodal connections and the 180,000 people who work for and in the surrounding port and industrial area.
The Port of Rotterdam was once the world’s busiest port before it was recently overtaken by Singapore, and then Shanghai, and it now covers some 41 square miles and stretches across 25 miles.
The port has a long history which reaches back into the 14th century, and as the city of Rotterdam has developed into a major harbor city, the port expanded from a series of docks along the banks of the Nieuwe Maas river. In the 19th century, the port expanded in response to the fact that connections between Rotterdam and the North Sea were lacking, a situation which meant ships were forced to sail around the island of Voorne-Putten to reach the sea.
Teen sailor s memorial bracelet makes world record journey with sailor - The Virginian-Pilot
Virginian-Pilot page designer Robert Suhay set a world distance sailing record last week in his 14-foot-long Laser in the Atlantic Ocean, from Morehead City, N.C., to Annapolis, Md. Lisa Suhay, Robert s wife, is blogging about the trip.
Tyler Patnaude, a Cosby High School student and avid sailor, was 18 years old when he was killed in a car wreck in April 2014 in Chesterfield County. My husband, Robert Suhay, feels that Tyler s spirit was with him as he broke the world record this week.
This is one of those stories that come to light during the decompression days after a massive, world record effort.
Robert and I had driven home Saturday from Annapolis, Md., after he broke the world record the previous night.
It was late. Fireworks had already lit the night sky, and Robert was sitting at the computer trying to take in all the good wishes people had sent to him online.
Sea Songs Preserve Long Island Sound s Maritime History - WSHU
Most people know "Blow the Man Down." Or "What Would You Do With A Drunken Sailor?" But there s a whole world of sea shanties and naval ballads out there.
Long Island Sound has a strong maritime history. New London, Connecticut was once the third-largest whaling port in the world. Both New London and neighboring Groton were bases for privateers during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. And all of those sailors had their own songs, whether they were sea shanties (music to work to), or naval ballads (heroic stories of great military leaders or famous battles).

Grain handling:Kochi Port move to cut reliance on labour rings alarm bells
Kochi Port’s move to discourage food grain consignments in bulk vessels seems to have raised an alarm among the labour fraternity, fearing for their survival in the port area.
A prominent trade union has questioned the ethics and economic logic of displacing port labour from handling food grains arriving in bulk carriers and also the move to promote alternate methods like receiving food grains in containers.
“If Kochi Port denies access to such bulk vessels, the port will be abandoning its statutory responsibility to act as a facilitator of trade. Importers would then be driven away to ports elsewhere. As long as dry bulk freight rates remain low, importers are unlikely to bring food grains in containers,” K.V.A. Iyer, Vice-President, Cochin Port Labour Union, told BusinessLine.
As a facilitator of the trade, the port management could not be justified for its decision to discourage receipt of bulk ships. As a statutory authority, it is unjust to deny labour the right to livelihood through work, he said.
