‘Costa Concordia’  hoisted to upright position       去年113日翻沉之意大利协和号客轮经18个月时间, 8亿美元打捞费和最复雜的工程,已于上月17日清晨被扶正.

The 952-foot half-submerged cruise ship Costa Concordia was slowly pulled upright in a 19-hour salvage operation on Sept. 16. ‘Costa Concordia’ capsized off the Italian island of Giglio 20 months ago, on Jan. 13, 2012, in a disaster that killed 32 people.

The procedure of pulling the ship upright, known as parbuckling, was completed using more than 50 giant chains and winches, according to the BBC. Caissons full of water were attached to the sides of the vessel to help stabilize it, and will eventually be emptied of the water to give the ship flotation so it can be towed away.

The salvage is a joint operation between Titan Salvage, owned by Crowley Maritime Corp., and the Italian marine contractor Micoperi. The salvage has cost over $800 million so far.

Costa Concordia now rests on a platform that was constructed on the sea floor.

Freighter sails through Northwest Passage from Canada to Europe  货轮 ‘NordicOrion’上月初从加拿大之溫哥华港穿过西北航道开往欧洲. 此乃北极冰块开始溶化后第一艘大型货轮实现航海人百年来之梦想.


A large sea freighter completed a voyage through the hazardous Arctic Northwest Passage for the first time on Friday as global warming opens routes that mariners have wanted for centuries.

The 75,000-dwt ‘Nordic Orion’, built in 2011, left the Canadian Pacific port of Vancouver in early September with a cargo of coking coal and is scheduled to arrive in the Finnish port of Pori on October 7, according to AIS shipping data.

"The Northwest Passage is more than 1,000 nautical miles shorter than the traditional shipping route through the Panama Canal and will save time, fuel and reduce carbon dioxide emissions, but even more importantly increase the amount of cargo per transit 25 percent," said Nordic Bulk Carriers, the Danish owner of the ship.

The 225 metre long Nordic Orion, a panamax-sized ship, has a strengthened bulk to cope with floating ice.

It is currently off the western coast of Greenland, where it let a Canadian Arctic adviser on board at Nuuk in Greenland, its operator said.

The vessel is to deliver the coal to Ruukki Metals, a Finnish steel producer.

MSC to Challenge Maersk Line as Top Carrier      地中海船务公司意欲挑战马士基成为世界货箱船公司龙头地位.

Sept. 17, 2013 10:05AM EDT

Mediterranean Shipping Co. will challenge Maersk Line as the world’s biggest ocean carrier over the coming four years, as it boasts the biggest order book for new vessels, according to industry analyst Alphaliner.

With new orders totaling 572,000 20-foot-equivalent units since 2009, Swiss-based MSC will narrow the gap with Maersk Line from 250,000 TEUs to less than 100,000 TEUs within four years. Alphaliner expects the current top 5 carriers – Maersk, MSC, CMA CGM, Evergreen and Cosco – to maintain their rankings through September 2016.

Recent orders by Yang Ming Line and United Arab Shipping Company for new tonnage of 14,000 TEUs to 18,000 TEUs will propel them up the rankings, with the Taiwanese carrier set to jump from 14th to 10th and the Kuwait-based line set to jump from 19th to 14th – assuming none of their new ships are chartered out. Germany’s Hapag-Lloyd is set to drop from the sixth position to the eighth, while APL is forecast to rise to sixth from eighth at present. Israeli carrier Zim is seen dropping to 20th from 17th. Alphaliner’s projections are based on carriers’ current fleet and order book and assume the return of ships that are currently chartered out.

While there will be shifts in carrier rankings, there are no signs of consolidation through mergers or any of the top 20 lines exiting the industry in the near future, Alphaliner noted. There was speculation that the decision by MISC Berhad to quit container shipping in 2012, following mounting losses and rising investment costs in ever larger vessels, would herald a wave of consolidation as smaller lines merged or followed the Malaysian carrier out of the business.

“However, if the recent spate of new container ship ordering by several top 20 carriers is any indication of the carriers’ intentions to ensure their long-term survival in the sector, then consolidation remains a distant hope,” Alphaliner said.

Eighteen of the top 20 carriers have placed orders for new container tonnage, totaling 344 vessels with an aggregate capacity of 3.4 million TEUs since 2009, valued at $34.1 billion. Only two of the top 20, Zim and Japan’s NYK Line, have not contracted for new ships in the past four years.
