Canada sets eyes on LNG as marine fuel alternative
A key USD 1.2 million project is underway on the West Coast to find out the possibilities of using Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as a marine fuel in Canada. As par present indications, by 2015-16, Canada will bring about changes in emissions norms, under which the ships sailing within Canada's 322km territorial waters will have to comply with sulphur emissions norms. With the use of LNG as fuel, the ship owners would be able to achieve lower emissions since it "emits no sulphur in the form of SOx and can reduce emissions of NOx and particulate matter by up to 80-90%". According to the West Coast Marine LNG Supply Chain Project, the new fuel alternative will help reducing the greenhouse gas emissions by up to 25% compared with conventional marine fuels. Despite its usefulness, the LNG fuel option also poses challenges to the marine industry. There are no common global LNG bunkering standards, which have clear instructions of transfer of fuel from an onshore facility, from a bunkering barge or from an LNG tanker truck. The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), which is currently working on a technical guideline to address bunkering, is expected to release their draft later this year.
Panama Canal to hold 'Safe Boarding Week' in July
The Panama Canal Authority will hold its annual "Safe Boarding Week" from July 8 to 12, 2013. During the week, the authority will highlight and encourage safe boarding practices on all vessels arriving in the waterway. Activities will involve inspections of boarding facilities by teams representing groups who normally board vessels, such as Canal port captains, pilots, transit vessel inspectors, chemists, admeasurers, deckhands and ships' agents. Vessels at Cristobal and Balboa anchorages will be boarded to inspect their boarding facility arrangements and Masters will be provided with the inspection results. Those vessels deserving special recognition for excellence will be presented with plaques that will be delivered immediately after inspection.
SAFETY Disposable cargo
Crewmembers should remember that cargo hold wash water from holds containing Harmful to the Marine Environment (HME) cargoes can only be discharged provided that the master determines that there are no adequate reception facilities at the receiving terminal and the ship is en route and as far as practicable from the nearest land, but not less than 12 nautical miles. Before washing, dry cargo residue should be removed (and bagged for discharge ashore) as far as practicable and holds are swept and the volume of wash water used should be kept to a minimum. Moreover, filters should be used in the bilge wells in order to collect any remaining solid particles and minimise solid residue discharge. Lastly, the discharge should be recorded in the Garbage Record Book and
