Oceans of Crime - Maritime Piracy and Transnational Security in Southeast Asia and Bangladesh

   Everybody knows what a pirate is. We all have mental images of bearded men with earrings, a peg leg, an eyepatch, and a parrot on the shoulder as epitomized by Robert Louis Stevenson's Long John Silver. The activities of pirates also do not seem very mysterious: they attack vessels and steal whatever they can lay their hands on. However this popular, Western literary-historical notion of a pirate is far too simplistic. Indeed, "piracy" has been associated with a variety of economic and political activities and has carried different connotations over space and time. Hence, definitions of piracy have varied historically and culturally and are highly contested by individuals, groups, and nations. The label "pirate" is inevitably emotive, and linked to particular cultural-historical contexts and moments in global-regional time, especially in Southeast Asia, where the scourge of piracy and its eradication featured largely in the annals of colonial mercantile history. In the past, the categorization of individuals or ethnic groups as "pirates" was ascribed to local "marauders" by colonial powers, signifying a powerful value judgement which was invariably connected to political and territorial ambitions, world commerce, and economic growth. Given the long history of piracy in Southeast Asia, it is necessary to discuss briefly the historical background of sea robbery in the region before shifting the focus to contemporary piracy.

STAB 1990 - Fourth International Conference on Stability of Ships and Ocean Vehicles - Naples

   One of the main purposes of the Organization consists of promoting the highest practical standards of maritime safety and navigation, and the Sub-Committee on Stability and Load Lines and on Fishing Vessels Safety in its current, as well as in its previous, work undertakes all possible effort to incorporate the latest achievements related tc both design and theoretical areas into its existing standards as well as in regulations actually being developed. So far, intact stability requirements and recommendations have been developed for passenger ships, cargo ships, fishing vessels, dynamically supported craft, mobile offshore drilling units, offshore supply vessels, special purpose ships and sea-going pontoons, thus covering the overwhelming majority of the world's merchant fleet. Standards of damage stability were introduced for the first time for passenger ships in the 1948 SOLAS Convention and re-adopted by the I960 and 1974 SOLAS Conventions. For some specific categories of ships, such as tankers, chemical tankers and gas carriers, IMO developed sets of requirements and recommendations based on the principle of prevention of massive spillage of their cargo into the sea; the current "state of the art" for other types of ships is given below. The detailed description or IMO's activities related to the development of stability standards within the period 1962 to 1986 was given in papers presented at the Second and Third International Conferences on Stability of Ships and Ocean Vehicles held in 1982 in Tokyo and in 1986 in Gdansk, respectively. This paper summarizes the progress achieved by the SLF Sub-Committee since 1986...

Design and Operation of Automated Container Storage Systems

   The container box is sometimes hailed as one of the ten greatest inventions of the last century and has certainly transformed the way cargo moves around the world. This is due to the fact that different goods—which would otherwise require individual loading procedures using specialised machinery along their shipment routes—can be packed into such containers of various sizes and thus become standardised transportation objects. This makes them amenable to handling in seaports and other hubs by readily available equipment such as quay cranes, straddle carriers and gantry cranes. The latter are often used to store, retrieve and shuffle containers in a container-storage yard. Such yards are typically divided into several blocks. Depending on the overall design of the storage yard, the cranes can either be rather flexibly driven around the entire yard (so-called Rubber-Tyred Gantry Cranes, RTGC) or are installed on rail tracks along each block (Rail-Mounted Gantry Cranes, RMGC); these cranes are hence mainly dedicated to a particular block. In contrast to an RTGC which always requires a driver for each crane, RMGC systems can be largely automated and are hence very efficient which becomes increasingly more important—in particular, in high labour-cost countries. Of course, the potential savings in salaries of such a highly automated system incur a comparably higher up-front investment for equipment that cannot easily be used in different blocks of the yard. An efficient planning and operation of such a yard block is therefore highly relevant for achieving a sufficient utilisation of the block in order to tip the cost balance in favour of such a system...

Verification of Lifting Appliances for the Oil and Gas Industry

   The selection of the level of verification shall depend on the risk level of each of the elements that have an impact on the management of hazards and associated risk levels of the asset. The planning can be simplified or detailed. This is further described in DNV-OSS-300. This specification mainly aids in a simplified preparation of the Verification Plan. Verification describes the individual activities undertaken by DNV at the various stages of design-construction and operation of the facility. The scope of the verification plan is ultimately determined by the Client. A statement of Compliance may be issued by DNV to confirm compliance according to the scope of work. Certification describes the totality of verification activities leading up to the issue of a Certificate of Conformity. The scope of work and verification plan, called a Certification Plan, is set by DNV. All design and construction aspects, related to process facility safety and integrity, must be covered by the Certification Plan. In the event that DNV does not define the scope of work necessary to achieve certification, a certificate of Lifting Appliance shall not be issued.

Advanced Shiphandling

   The experienced seaman and ship designer know jus! what the sea at its worst can do to the structure of a ship. Overwhelmed by the sea is a warning to both seafarer and architect that such unforgiving force must never be underestimated, and may not yet be fully understood. Let us look at a large cargo ship on a winter passage across the North Atlantic from Europe to North America. Her Master will have received regular weather reports and will have plotted his route in an effort to minimize the effects of heavy weather, but such is the depth and frequency of the giant depressions that remorselessly track across the Western Ocean in winter, that it is unlikely that he can avoid their effects entirely. Sooner or later the ship will find itself laboring against the worst that nature can throw at it. It is on such occasions that the complex structure of steel and systems which make up the modern ship will be tested to the limit. While the Master can adjust his speed and course to minimize the effects of the storm, his job is to get to his port of destination without too much delay, balancing the risk of damage against the cost of a late arrival, trusting in his skill as a ship handler and the strength of his ship.

STAB 1986 - Third International Conference on Stability of Ships and Ocean Vehicles - Gdansk

   Аs long as shipping existed ships were exposed to the hostile environment and shipbuilders from the oldest times lerned that in order to survive in this environment ships had to stable. They developed also by trial and error method the practical knowledge how to build comparatively stable ships, however hot stable enough to ensure safe completion of the voyage. In modern times understanding of basic laws of ship's geometry and static stability enabled naval architects to make calculations during the design stage, then developments in ship hydrodynamics allowed to calculate the behaviour of ship in a seaway and the effect of external forces on stabillity. Nevertheless from time to time ships were lost as a result of capsizing quite often with all hands onboard. Even introduction by some nations of stability regulations which also included certain stability criteria did not eliminate casualties.

Verification of Process Facilities

   The present Offshore Service Specification (DNV-OSS-307) was released by Det Norske Veritas with the intention to provide necessary criteria for and proper guidance on verification of the integrity and function of parts or phases of process facilities. This document falls under the top level document number DNV-OSS-300 called Risk Based Verification. All descriptions in this specification support a simplified verification planning as described in Section 2F of Risk Based Verification. When using the combined or advanced planning, the above stated descriptions will give starting points as well as good references. The objectives of the present publication are to describe the following for a process facility: preparation of a VP (Verification Plan) using DNV's risk differentiated levels of verification activities as well as detailed example scope of work tables, DNV's reporting and implementation of the Verification Plan. This OSS may be adopted, if necessary, for the verification of parts of selected project phases or process facilities.
