Hudong Heavy Industries, an engine manufacturing subsidiary of CSSC Group, plans to invest RMB724m in a “propulsion research platform” project which will be completed in two years.
The investment will be made through Hudong Heavy Industries’ subsidiary Hudong Heavy Industries Accessories Co which was established in 2010.
Hudong Heavy Industries said the company will achieve a complete research capability for its own branded mid-speed and low-speed marine engines upon completion of the project.

Chinese government set to pay owners to scrap old tonnage

中国政府将于年底行以金津贴船东拆掉旧船計划, 前提是拆船必需在国内进行. ( 1).

Beijing’s bureaucrats are preparing to put cash behind recent calls for a big cull of older tonnage.

China’s Ministry of Transport (MOT) is preparing to unveil a long-hoped-for incentive that will pay cash subsidies to Chinese owners for accelerated scrapping of their oldest ships.

Chinese Shipowners’ Association (CSA) secretary general Zhang Shouguo, whose group has long touted the measure on behalf of its members, tells TradeWinds the ministry is working out the details together with their counterparts in the finance ministry.

“We have asked the government to pay attention to the operation of older vessels, to put more pressure on such ships and get them off the market,” he said, explaining that in addition to subsidies, his members support tough regulation of both Chinese-flag tonnage and, through China’s Maritime Safety Authority, on foreign tonnage in Chinese port-state-control (PSC) inspections.

Zhang, a former MOT official, expects the subsidy programme to be given the go-ahead before the end of the year.

The planned demolition subsidies are meant not only to improve safety at sea and cut risks to the environment but also to help out struggling Chinese owners caught in a commercial double bind as they suffer the market-depressing effects of oversupply and yet cannot afford to dispose of their underpriced steel.

Higher subsidies will be awarded to relatively younger tonnage in order to encourage Chinese owners to take 20-year-old ships out of circulation.

‘Cash for clunkers’

Under the “cash for clunkers” scheme, subsidies will go only for the scrapping of Chinese-owned, Chinese-flag tonnage. But if Chinese owners take up the voluntary offer, the knock-on effect in cutting vessel oversupply will be felt internationally, as the measure covers globally-trading and not merely domestic-trading tonnage. Hong Kong-flag ships will not be eligible.

Ships will have to be scrapped in Chinese yards to earn the cash subsidies, something that will cut into the shipowners’ take as Chinese in-dock scrapping is more costly.

Precise numbers remain “a secret still”, says Zhang but he adds that transport and finance officials have arrived at a formula for calculating the subsidy. A base amount will be awarded for scrapping vessels 30 years old or older, with an additional increment for each year younger, down to the age of 20.

Zhang says Chinese yards have been enthusiastic supporters of the shipowner-sponsored measure.

OSG in a very tight spot     美国老牌油轮公司 OSG (Overseas shipping Group) 拥有100条油轮 接连13季的亏损即将申请破产保护.

In June 2008, Overseas Shipholding Group (OSG) was trading near $87 a share, had a market capitalisation of more than $2bn and was able to talk about boosting its position as the biggest US-based shipowner with more than 100 vessels.

Founded in 1969, and New York-listed since 1973, it seemed the epitome of the rock-steady, bellwether public owner.

But after 13-straight loss-making quarters that saw its liquidity steadily shrink and talks turn to a deal with its banks, OSG watched the whole thing unravel in the past few weeks.

The resignation of a key director, a shares slide below $5 and, finally, Monday’s announcement of potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy have roiled the entire shipping market. C harter counterparties are as worried as OSG’s stock and bondholders about a potential fallout from potentially shipping’s biggest corporate failure in 20 years.

OSG’s banks — already said to be irritated by hardball negotiating tactics — are the only parties now able to save the owner from bankruptcy court, experts say. But with tax issues looming and lawsuits flying, will they and should they?

TradeWinds looks at how OSG got here and where it may be headed.

Shanghai to open maritime investigation lab in 2013        上海将于明年成立上海海事安全委负责调查意外发生事件.

Tuesday, 30 October 2012 | 11:00

China's first laboratory devoted to investigating maritime accidents will open by the end of next year, the Shanghai Maritime Safety Administration announced.
Investigators will use the laboratory, which has been under construction since Friday, to analyze the causes of serious accidents that involve the loss of lives and property, including ship collisions, explosions, oil spills and sinkings, the administration stated in a press release.
The laboratory will make investigating maritime accidents faster and more scientific, said Chen Xiaoguang, deputy director of the Shanghai Maritime Safety Administration.
"In the past, we had to rely on personal judgments when dealing with a maritime accident," Chen told the Global Times. "It would take us a long time to go to the site of an accident to question the involved parties or to look for evidence from a video of the event. Once the laboratory is built, we will be able to use paint or trace analysis and accident simulation technology, all of which is faster and more objective."
He added that the laboratory will strengthen Shanghai's position as an international shipping center.
The administration is working with Jiao Tong University and Shanghai Maritime University on the laboratory. The universities signed an agreement Friday with the administration to share technology and train researchers.
The laboratory will run out of eight offices, all with a different specialization. The Shanghai Maritime Safety Administration will operate the four offices that specialize in paint and trace analysis, electronic evidence analysis, accident simulation, document identification and human factor analysis. Shanghai Jiao Tong University will run the two offices that handle material analysis and ship model testing. Shanghai Maritime University will deal with oil spill detection and analysis, and marine machinery and equipment examination.
