SeaProf’s NEW course “Fundamentals of Merchant Ships” + BI/SeaProf’s “Key Elements of Shipping” = Essential knowledge for ‘turning lemons into lemonade’.
We all know that times are tough in shipping and that 2016 is not looking great. However, it’s not bad for everyone and the tanker and cruise ship market is still growing and profitable. Nor will the down turn last forever as old bulk carriers keep going to scrap, the container fleets re-structure and the[…]
‘Smoking Ships’ and ‘Smoking Guns’: IMO’s rescue of green shipping from a COP 21 world where pigs can evidently fly.
The term ‘smoking gun’ has long been used as a metaphor for incontrovertible evidence of guilt. The evidence of air pollution caused by ship engine exhaust is incontrovertible. The question must now be as to just how bad is it compared to emissions from shore based sources? And what more can be done about ship[…]
History dictates that global supply and demand is cyclic and the business of shipping must invariably follow. However, the current downturn – as illustrated by the BDI (Baltic Dry Index) which hovers at an all time low – seems to defy gravity in its apparent reluctance to return to normal. What the hell is going[…]

The recent warnings from Maersk’s boss that profit projections are down and one of their 18,000 TEU ships is laid up have brought a ‘cold light of day’ reality to the container shipping industry that has defied overcapacity concerns by continuing to order new tonnage. Maersk itself has 26 new ships on order and the[…]
Big box carriers and DNV GL have devised an LNG powered container vessel that will provide much of what is promised for future ‘Technomax’ ships, right now. The container market is suffering from overcapacity, with Maersk putting some of their big E-class vessels into hot lay up. The pressure will therefore mount for early scrapping[…]
SeaPower readers will recall recent posts regarding the on-going tragedy of cargo liquefaction and the “Bulk Jupiter” disaster that claimed, needlessly, 18 seafarer lives. The findings of the Bahamas flag investigating authority were that it was “likely” the capsize and loss of the vessel was due to the liquefaction of her bulk cargo of wet[…]
Key Elements of Shipping course participant complaint: “3 days is not enough, more please!” Participant Sharon Cross, participant from IS Seacos Asia Lots of positive feedback from the KES Oct 2015 course participants was received once again.

AMSA bans another Indonesian flag vessel from Australian waters: time for Indonesia’s shipowners to wake up?
The Australian Maritime Safety Agency (AMSA) has a well known reputation for operating one of the world’s toughest PSC (Port State Control) regimes. Stories include an elderly bulk carrier that was detained and was only allowed to leave Australia at the end of a tow line, en route to an Asian scrapyard. So Australia is[…]
