Insurers should control the ship safety classification process in the light of weaknesses exposed by the Erika’s loss, a senior tanker broker said. Insurance companies should hold the mandate over who inspected vessels’ structural conditions and passed them as safe, an official at Marinav Shipping and Trading said. Since insurers pay out the claim, it is therefore in their best interest to ensure that the vessel is maintained so that risk is minimized, the broker said.

With high profile carriers agreeing to continue a voluntary low-sulphur fuel switch while at berth in Hong Kong, the issue of emission controls is once again in the headlines. Stepping into this arena, Videotel has launched a new training course, The Practical Management and Switching of Fuels, designed to ensure that switching to low sulphur fuel when operating in Emission Control Areas (ECAs) avoids the serious operational problems that at best impair a ships performance and at worst cause
Last year Germanischer Lloyd and Mühlhan sponsored a Surface Protection Symposium in October in Lübeck, dealing with the topic of value retention in the shipping industry. The outcome was a lively exchange of ideas among shipowners, coating material manufacturers and surface protection experts. Up-to-date findings from research were discussed with the same vitality as problems from workaday practice. This report provides an overview of the events involved.
With the recent introduction of stringent environmental regulations, such as those from the IMO, ship owners and operators are increasingly obliged to operate their MAN B&W two-stroke main engines on ultra-low sulphur fuels in defined marine zones. Furthermore, CARB (the Californian Air Resource Board) has enforced the use of diesel oils (MDO) or gas oils (MGO) in Californian waters since 1 July, 2009, while European harbours introduced similar requirements at the start of 2010
