Russia to Clear Its Most Radioactive Vessel

According to Russian nuclear officials, the Lepse cargo ship, which was once the most visible nuclear menace in Murmansk seaport, will now be cleared of virtually all of its toxic cargo by the beginning of next year.
The Lepse gathered 639 spent nuclear fuel packages during its tenure as a refueling ship for Soviet-era nuclear icebreakers. Some of them were destroyed, causing an environmental hazard that floated untreated at the Murmansk port for years.
The Lepse was decommissioned in 1988 and was tossed aside at Atomflot, the home of Russia’s nuclear icebreaker line. It remained a serious radioactive threat to Murmansk…

How Sweden Investigated An Engine Room Fire Accident in 1985

At the time, Sweden had a Fire Protection Commission composed of personnel from shore-based fire services, the Maritime Administration, and other maritime-related institutions, including union members. This Commission was in charge of fire safety instruction for seafarers, but they had other interests as well.
They examined their balance statement in 1985 and decided to invest extra money in a fire study. According to the study’s findings, oil spray fires were the most prevalent cause of engine room accidents. These might spread to the cofferdam, resulting in a far more severe pool blaze.
At the time this research began…

Adapting to Sea Piracy’s Dynamic Transformation

We investigated various options for mitigating the problem of piracy’s future development in the Gulf of Guinea. This study is incomplete unless the major player, the seafarer, is included. As a result, this analysis focuses on how mariners must adjust to the exponential rise of pirate operations.
Despite advancements in maritime communications, the captain remains a solitary leader. His or her position demands rapid judgments in a wide range of scenarios. If the circumstance allows, he can seek to make a phone call, but once the call ends, he is once again solitary.
A pirate assault is a fast-paced event that puts a …

Understanding China’s Modern Maritime Militia

China somehow doesn’t publish the names of its maritime militia vessels. This would undermine the militia’s fundamental advantages of secrecy and deniability. It is also uncommon for Chinese publications to identify particular vessels’ militia connections. Analysts are using clues to determine if a ship is probable to be China’s maritime militia vessel or not.
Since 2014, China has constructed dozens of massive Spratly fishing boats, dubbed the “Spratly backbone fleet.” As we have stated in War on the Rocks, the majority, if not all, of these boats are associated with the marine militia. This idea…

Rutter Aims for Safer Maritime Operations

Rutter, a Canadian digital startup, is redefining radar by providing seafarers with unique access to analytics about their environment. Rutter’s radar systems can detect glaciers in the water, detect patterns in tides and swells, and detect small boats despite background noise, thanks to powerful algorithms and signal processing.
Rutter’s most recent innovation is a safety surveillance system that predicts waves and their impacts on-deck activities. The WaveSignalTM sigma S6 technology anticipates calm operating intervals on a three-minute timeframe and exhibits a signal light on deck indicating halt (red) or go (green…

Three Maritime Sector Digitalization Strategies

In the marine industry, a lot of documentation monitoring systems are being modernized in an attempt to increase project and process efficiency. Despite these improvements, errors continue to occur during operations, and newer document control software is frequently unsatisfactory.
What do you hope to achieve through marine digitalization?
There are numerous new updates to pick from, but what problem do you want to tackle with a proposed system? If you want to develop and improve, don’t choose a product that just replaces what you presently do. First and foremost, reconsider your information approach…

Should the G7 Countries Offer an Alternative to China’s Belt and Road Initiative?

Western countries have been suspicious of China’s outburst of development finance in Africa, even urging African nations to reject Chinese funding. With massive infrastructure investment gaps to fill, Africa has had no choice but to seek a liberal development sponsor for its programs. Furthermore, most African governments often avoid the World Bank and IMF, which have strict compliance requirements for their lending facilities.
The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has put China on a collision course with other world superpowers in the international arena. Can Western nations, however, band together to compete with the BRI?

Cargo Companies Request Congress to Revise Shipping Act

Cargo shippers are urging the United States Congress to act immediately to update rules and the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) function, claiming that overcrowding, delays, rising fees, and a lack of infrastructure at U.S. seaports have caused unparalleled damage to the global shipping network.
This newest endeavor follows frequent complaints to the FMC by shippers alleging operators of unfair practices and high costs. While the FMC has raised worry about market circumstances, officials from shipping companies have immediately criticized these new recommendations.
The continuing maritime transport crisis has made a huge …

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to Decarbonize Current Ships

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has begun a new initiative with the Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Center to evaluate the practical, economical, and environmental considerations involved in converting current ships to operate on zero-carbon energy. The project intends to decrease investment risk in the carbon reduction transition by developing a plan for turning current ships into carbon-neutral vessels.
A technical examination of the safety implications of transforming bulkers, tankers, and box ships to function on urea, methanol, and other alternative fuels will be part of the project. MHI will also investigate the costs involved, …
