Clipper Bulk Cuts 40 Jobs as Part of Its Reorganization
Dry bulk shipping firm Clipper Bulk has unveiled a number of initiatives to strengthen its business platform amid continued weak markets.
The global operator of Handysize and Supramax vessels informed that the initiatives include agreements to strengthen the company s financial position, downsizing of organization and office network, other cost savings, changes to Senior Management as well as a more focused market approach.
To further simplify its operational and administrative set-up, Clipper Bulk would cut 40 out of 140 jobs ashore and close its Tokyo office. Additional initiatives will be launched to tightly manage costs and prioritize resources, the company added.
As part of the reorganization, additional working capital is put at Clipper Bulk s disposal.
"We have been challenged by the steep, unexpected market downturn. Today, we are taking the steps required to run a viable, profitable dry bulk operation, even in depressed markets. We are establishing a platform, which will allow us to fully benefit from Clipper s positions of strengths in various trades and geographies," Peter Norborg, Clipper CEO, said.
In continuation of the changes, Clipper Bulk has set up a new Senior Management Team, that will put great emphasis on making Clipper a more focused and specialized dry bulk operator.
Clipper will continue to develop its niche businesses, such as Clipper Steel, Compass Rose, China Parcel, Brazil Steel, etc.
Clipper Bulk currently operates around 80 vessels, including tonnage operated by 2 Clipper Bulk-managed pools, The Clipper Handy Pool and The Clipper Ultra Pool.
Two Holland America Line Ships Collide in Vancouver
Two Holland America Line s cruise ships collided at the Port of Vancouver s Canada Place terminal on May 4.
At approximately 6:50 a.m. local time, the 82,820 GT Oosterdam allided with the 86,273 GT Nieuw Amsterdam while docking stern to stern, Holland America Line confirmed in a statement.
"There were no injuries reported and disembarkation on both ships proceeded as usual," the cruise company said.
Both vessels sustained minor damages. Damage to Oosterdam is minimal, while six aft stateroom verandahs on Nieuw Amsterdam required repairs, according to Holland America Line.
"All required repairs are well above the waterline and the seaworthiness of both ships is not affected," the cruise line explained on Saturday.
Following the incident, Holland America Line informed all appropriate authorities.
The 2010-built Nieuw Amsterdam departed on May 4 at 5:30 p.m. on an Alaska cruise, roundtrip Vancouver. The 2003-built Oosterdam sailed at 4:45 p.m. on an overnight cruise to Seattle and departed on a roundtrip Alaska cruise the following day.
As informed by the company, there is no impact on these or future itineraries of the two cruise ships.
QP Issues Tender for North Field LNG Storage, Loading Facilities
Qatar Petroleum has released a tender in an effort to expand its LNG storage, loading and export facilities for its North Field Expansion (NFE) project.
The tender package calls for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of two additional LNG berths with an option for a third LNG berth, and loading and return lines from the LNG berths to the tanks.
The package includes three LNG storage tanks, compressors to recover tank boil off gas during storage and jetty boil off gas during LNG vessel loading, and LNG rundown lines from the LNG trains to the LNG storage area.
"The issuance of this tender package will culminate in the award of this EPC contract by February 2020," Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President & CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said.
"This tender package is part of a strong drive to put the various NEF project components in place, including four mega LNG trains that would expand the State of Qatar s LNG production from 77 million tons per annum to 110 million tons by 2024."
"This also includes the recently announced major LNG ship-building campaign expected to initially deliver 60 LNG carriers in support of the planned production expansion, with a potential to exceed 100 new LNG carriers over the next decade," Al-Kaabi concluded.
ABB to Power 1st US-Built All-Electric Vessels
ABB has been selected to provide zero-emission technology for the first two all-electric vessels ever built in the United States.
As informed, ABB will supply an integrated power and propulsion solution for the newbuilds, including lithium-ion battery packs and an onshore charging system, enabling sustainable operation.
The two new passenger vessels sailing on pure electric power were ordered by Niagara Falls tour operator Maid of the Mist and are currently under construction in Wisconsin.
In mid-May, the modules will be transported to Niagara Falls and lowered onto the Maid of the Mist dry dock and maintenance facility for assembly. Following completion of construction, launch and certification, the new vessels are expected to be placed into service in mid-September, replacing the company s two older vessels.
As explained, the new vessels will benefit from zero-emission technology when they start operating later this year, allowing passengers to experience Niagara Falls undisturbed by engine noise, vibration or exhaust fumes from a conventional diesel engine.
"We have chosen ABB to support us in our journey towards more sustainable operation," Christopher M. Glynn, president of Maid of the Mist Corp., said.
"Maid of the Mist s decisive move towards e-mobility signals a new era in the future of transportation and complements ABB s commitment to power the world without consuming the earth," Peter Terwiesch, President of the Industrial Automation business at ABB, commented.
"Reducing emissions at Niagara Falls is not only important for the natural landmark, but also proves that the technologies enabling sustainable mobility are already available today," he added.
Each of the vessels will be powered by a pair of battery packs with a total capacity of 316 kWh, split evenly between two catamaran hulls. Having two fully independent power systems on board will increase the resilience of operations by creating redundancy, as explained by ABB.
The vessels will charge between every trip while passengers disembark and board.
The batteries will be charged using hydropower - the largest single renewable energy source for electricity generation in the US, which accounts for 7% of the country s total utility-scale electricity generation. The use of locally produced renewable power will make the energy cycle for the operation of the new Maid of the Mist vessels entirely emission-free.
Five Indian sailors 'abducted' in Nigeria, Sushma Swaraj seeks action at highest level
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday asked the Indian High Commissioner in Nigeria to take the "abduction" of five Indian sailors by pirates in the African nation two weeks ago, at the "highest level". The minister also asked Indian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Abhay Thakur, to prepare a report over the incident.
"I have seen news reports about abduction of five Indian sailors by pirates in Nigeria," tweeted Swaraj on Monday.
The minister's tweet comes days after media reports suggested that pirates had abducted five Indian sailors last month and took their ship MT Apecus in Bonny Outer anchorage in Nigeria. Their families also tweeted to the Indian commission in Nigeria, saying they were unable to contact the sailors.
On April 30, in a tweet addressed to Baijayant Panda, BJP's vice-president ,Bhagyashree Das, wife of one of the abducted sailor Sudeep Kumar Choudhury, wrote, "Sir Plz help us to save my husband, Sudeep Kumar Choudhury 3rd Officer Merchant Navy, who has been kidnapped along with 4 other Indians from vessel, MT APECUS(IMO 733810) anchored off Lagos, Nigeria on 19.04.2019. Require ur early & urgent intervention into this matter." She later tweeted to Swaraj as well.
The Indian commission in Nigeria wrote back saying it was in "very close touch" with the Nigerian Navy and police and that "concerned parties have made initial contact." "Caution is of utmost importance for everyone's safety," it added.
