A ship for cruising in the polar regions was launched in Brodosplit

first_imgToday, Novogradnja 484, a polar cruise ship being built for the end customer, the Dutch company Oceanwide Expeditions, was launched in the Shipbuilding Industry Split.The polar cruise ship will be the first ship in the world built in the “LR PC6” class, which will meet the latest requirements of the Lloyd’s Register for vessels “Polar Class 6″. It is 107,6 meters long, 17,6 meters wide, and the speed of 15 knots will be provided by two main engines with a total power of 4260 kW. It will be able to accommodate 196 passengers housed in 85 cabins, cared for by 70 crew members.“This ship is a symbol of the restructuring of Brodosplit and a breakthrough in organizational and technological terms, because it is built with new software, tools and technology, especially in the equipment, where almost 80-85% of the ship is already equipped during construction on the slipway, resulting in better quality of workmanship, shorter deadlines and lower construction costs, said Tomislav Debeljak, President of the Management Board of Brodosplit. In many ways, this ship will be special and recognized as a lasting value for Split’s Škver and Croatian shipbuilding ” pointed out Tomislav Debeljak, President of the Management Board of Brodosplit.The ship will offer its passengers a high hotel standard as well as various categories of cabins, from spacious apartments to two-bedroom and four-bedroom cabins, where they will be provided with a safe and comfortable stay with multiple secured systems that serve them.The ship is being built according to a new financing model, for its own fleet and in long-term charter. The partner can redeem it on the first day after the handover, ie at any time, and it is obligatory after 10 years. “I am very pleased with the quality of the ship, which is already quite well equipped, with built-in propulsion and a number of equipment to accommodate passengers and crew. Our team has an excellent cooperation with the shipyard, and the ship will receive the first passengers for the polar regions in June next year. ” said Wijnand van Gessel, owner of Oceanwide Expeditions.The design and all technical solutions are the work of Brodosplit’s designers, who with this job also confirm their key role in positioning Brodosplit high on the list of technical competencies and construction competitiveness.This is a great success of Brodosplit, and only one in a series of completed quality work for a high level of performance and quality. Some new winds are certainly blowing in Brodosplit after the successful privatization.Related news:Brodosplit successfully completed the work of building a dam to save Venice from the effects of the tidelast_img read more

Curbing transmission on public transport not as simple as banning passengers: Experts

first_imgRead also: Three passengers of Bogor-Jakarta commuter line test positive for COVID-19Bogor Mayor Bima Arya Sugiarto said their priority was demanding the ministry temporarily halt commuter line services. In return, offices and factories that are still allowed to operate must provide shuttles for their employees.Another option, he said, was to lengthen commuter line operational hours and filter prospective passengers prior to entering the stations so as to reduce the number of passengers, which would improve physical distancing.“If this is the case, there has to be a selection mechanism for people who enter the stations. For instance, by showing an employment letter from their companies,” Bima said on Tuesday, as quoted by Antara news agency. “Therefore, people who just want to wander around [without urgency] cannot [board trains].”The appeals were made on Tuesday after the five Bodebek leaders discussed ways to prevent transmission of the virus on public transport.Three people tested positive for COVID-19 after they took a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in Bogor Station, one of the major stations in Greater Jakarta, last week. Three more passengers also tested positive in PCR testing in Bekasi Station on Tuesday, officials have said.All these passengers were asymptomatic, KCI spokesperson Anne Purba told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.Hermawan Saputra of the Indonesian Public Health Expert Association (IAKMI) said the vast commuter line network was the most vulnerable public transportation mode to coronavirus transmission because passengers would not be able to maintain physical distance on a crowded train during rush hours. Not to mention that respiratory droplets containing the virus may land on surfaces and persist up to several days inside the train, he said.The “rush-hour problem”, Anne said, had caused the KCI to impose additional restrictions for potential passengers aside from its regular COVID-19 mitigation measures — such as the mandatory mask-wearing and body temperature checks.“To improve discipline, starting on May 4, any trains that have a car filled with more than 60 passengers [or a fourfold decrease from the normal capacity per car] will not depart unless [passengers] reduce their numbers,” she said.She went on to say that KCI was open to cooperation with local administrations to “filter prospective passengers entering stations”.Hermawan said banning all non-urgent passengers from using commuter trains was one option, although at the same time he doubted the efficacy and questioned the methods to filter these passengers.“Here [in Indonesia], people always have excuses to defy new policies. Some people would always try to find excuses to board trains,” he said.He said suspending all commuter line services would be the better solution to contain the spread of the disease.Read also: Greater Jakarta to expand restrictions as existing measures deemed ineffectiveDeddy Herlambang, a researcher at the Transportation Study Institute (INSTRAN), said keeping all public transportation services running during the outbreak was crucial to even out the proportion of passengers across different modes of transportation.“Halting commuter line service would cause other public transportation modes to experience high demand. For instance, buses or motorcycle taxis,” he said.Any decisions, he said, would be ineffective if authorities failed to resolve the underlying causes of the problem — commuting workers who are struggling to make ends meet during the epidemic, people lacking discipline in adhering to physical distancing and social norms that dictate that attending an iftar meal with family at home is better than being alone.He suggested that authorities should look beyond the public health aspect and consider more social, economic and cultural factors.Topics : Since the epidemic hit Greater Jakarta, KCI has shortened its service hours to 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and reduced the number of daily trips from 991 to 761. These trains were mostly empty almost every day before Ramadan began on April 24, with only 10 percent of trains having been filled with a large number of passengers.But now, passengers numbers have been spiking on the last three trains before iftar at around 6 p.m., jeopardizing efforts to maintain physical distance between passengers.Fearing that passengers would continue defying orders to maintain distance, leaders of Greater Jakarta — five of Jakarta’s satellite cities, abbreviated as “Bodebek”, under the jurisdiction of the West Java administration — appealed to the central government to, once again, temporarily halt commuter line services.They are also planning to file a formal request to the Transportation Ministry in a bid to curb transmission in public transit systems after three potential railway passengers recently tested positive for COVID-19. Urban life is slowing down in Greater Jakarta, the region hit hardest by COVID-19, after authorities imposed large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in the past weeks.The outbreak has also largely reduced the number of commuter line passengers, but crowds of workers who cannot afford to work from home reportedly persist in certain stations and trains during rush hours.State-owned commuter line operator PT Kereta Commuter Indonesia (KCI) recorded an average of 190,000 passengers a day on the Bogor-Jakarta and Bekasi-Jakarta routes during the outbreak, a decrease of around 80 percent from around 950,000 passengers on normal days.last_img read more

Malaysia to file WTO legal action against EU over restrictions on palm biofuel

first_imgTopics : Malaysia, the world’s second largest palm oil producer, will take legal action against the European Union’s restrictions on palm oil-based biofuels with the World Trade Organization (WTO), calling the policy a “discriminatory action”.Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali said on Wednesday the EU’s renewable energy directive “restricts free trade practices”.”The policies adopted by the EU in the Delegation Regulation under the European Union Renewable Energy Directive II have created unreasonable restrictions on Malaysia’s sustainability efforts,” he said in a statement. The Southeast Asian nation will challenge the EU via the WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism, he added.The European Commission concluded last year that palm oil cultivation results in excessive deforestation and passed a law to phase out its use as transport fuel between 2023 and 2030.Palm’s biggest producer Indonesia challenged the law at the WTO in December, claiming the bloc’s restrictions were unfair.Malaysia will act as a third party in Indonesia’ WTO case as a sign of solidarity and its commitment to address the “anti-palm oil campaign”, Mohd Khairuddin said.Neighbors Indonesia and Malaysia together produce 85% of the world’s palm oil.EU consumption of palm oil in food has been in steady decline, but its use as a biofuel has increased. last_img read more

Say what? Three bedroom houses now cheaper than two bedroom units in Brisbane

first_imgTwo-bedroom units are now more expensive to rent in Brisbane than three-bedroom houses, according to PRDnationwide.The Queensland capital has the highest rental vacancy rate of all capital cities at 2.7 per cent, according to the report.It stated that was not surprising due to the oversupply of inner-CBD apartments.But SQM Research’s latest June update revealed asking rents for both houses and units in Brisbane rose slightly during the month — an indication surplus stock is being absorbed by rising demand. COFFEE KING SELLS GOLD COAST APARTMENT New research has found it is now cheaper to rent a three-bedroom house than a two-bedroom unit in Brisbane.IT IS now cheaper to rent a three-bedroom house than a two-bedroom unit in Brisbane, new research reveals.PRDnationwide’s Australian Economic Property Report 2018 found that in the March quarter of this year, the median weekly rent for two-bedroom units of $400 eclipsed that of three-bedroom houses at $390. GET THE LATEST REAL ESTATE NEWS DIRECT TO YOUR INBOX HERE The finding comes despite concerns about an oversupply of apartments in the inner city region.PRDnationwide national research manager Diaswati Mardiasmo said it was “an extremely interesting trend” that was also occurring in Sydney and Melbourne.Dr Mardiasmo said the research included suburbs in the entire Brisbane local government area, where there was a mix of new and old apartment stock — not just the inner-city region. Houses are now cheaper to rent than units in Brisbane, new research shows.More than 9800 residential properties remain vacant in the city.SQM Research managing director Louis Christopher said he was not too surprised two-bedroom units were more expensive to rent than three-bedroom houses in Brisbane.“The main reason for the close pricing is location,” Mr Christopher said. CRICKETER’S HOME READY FOR AUCTION “Three bedroom homes are, by far, the typical property type in the middle and outer rings of each capital city, but not in the inner rings, where apartments are the norm. “As we know, the closer to the city, the higher the rent.”Mr Christopher said he was confident the worst was over for Brisbane landlords and the city was set to benefit from Sydney’s housing downturn.center_img Older apartments in the Brisbane suburb of St Lucia. Photo: Liam Kidston.“I think, at the end of the day, when it comes to capital city living, there’s more demand for units due to their convenience,” Dr Mardiasmo said.“And that means landlords are being able to charge the same for a two-bedroom unit as a three-bedroom house.” ONE BEDDER SELLS FOR $2.6M More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus17 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market17 hours agolast_img read more

Two Greek Firms Fined for Dumping Oil in Texas Ports

first_imgTwo Greek shipping companies have pleaded guilty to charges stemming from several discharges of oil into the waters of Texas ports by the oil tanker M/T Nicos I.V., according to the U.S. Department of Justice.Namely, Avin International Ltd and Nicos I.V. Special Maritime Enterprises, the operator and owner of the Greek-flagged vessel, pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction of an agency proceeding, as well as one count of failure to report discharge of oil under the Clean Water Act, and three counts of negligent discharge of oil under the Clean Water Act.Under the plea agreement, the companies will pay a USD 4 million criminal fine and serve a four-year term of probation, during which vessels operated by the companies will be required to implement an environmental compliance plan, including inspections by an independent auditor.The Master of the tanker, Rafail-Thomas Tsoumakos, and the vessel’s Chief Officer, Alexios Thomopoulos, also pleaded guilty each to one count of making a material false statement to members of the United States Coast Guard during the investigation into the discharges and face up to five years in prison when sentenced. A sentencing date has not been set.According to documents filed in court, the Nicos I.V. was equipped with a segregated ballast system, a connected series of tanks used to control the trim and list of the vessel by taking on or discharging water, the latter involving an operation called deballasting. At some point prior to July 6, 2017, the ballast system of the Nicos I.V. became contaminated with oil and that oil was discharged twice from the vessel into the Port of Houston on July 6 and July 7, 2017, during deballasting operations.After leaving the Port of Houston, en route to Port Arthur, Texas, the deck crew was instructed to open the ballast tanks, and oil was observed in several of the tanks. After arriving in Port Arthur, additional oil began bubbling up next to the vessel, causing a report to the U.S. Coast Guard.last_img read more

Bach warns testing and vaccine not a “silver bullet” for Tokyo 2020

first_imgInternational Olympic Committee (IOC) President, Thomas Bach, has warned that testing and a COVID-19 vaccine is not a “silver bullet” for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo next year. Bach issued the stark warning during a virtual media conference which followed an IOC Executive Board meeting, held virtually. He claimed he was unable to answer questions on the finer details of the organisation of Tokyo 2020 as the “situation is changing almost day by day”. “The task force has to prepare for different scenarios, not knowing which one will be the environment next year,” Bach said. “That will not be easy, but of course, social distancing is under consideration. “We are also following very closely the development of rapid testing and vaccinations because these could also have an effect and facilitate preparations. “But, it’s just too early to give a concrete answer to what will be the final scenario and the final approach. “The only thing we can say is, it will be about offering a safe environment for all participants.” Bach sounded optimistic about the availability of a vaccine or rapid testing in time for next year, but did not see either as a “silver bullet”. “According to our information and the contact we have with experts, the World Health Organization and pharmaceutical companies, we will see a great progress with regards to rapid testing, which can greatly influence the planning,” Bach said. “We have also been informed of encouraging news concerning the development of vaccines. “All of this will play a role and they will not be the silver bullet, but they can greatly facilitate the organisation of the Games and hopefully events in the lead up to the Games.” A coronavirus countermeasures task force, formed of officials from the Japanese Government, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, are assessing possible scenarios and measures that could allow the Olympics to run as expected from July 23 to August 8, 2021. The Paralympics is then scheduled to follow from August 24 to September 5. read also:IOC initiates International Safeguarding Officer in Sport Certificate Border controls, COVID-19 countermeasures at venues, plans for dealing with infected people, pre-Games training camps, rules for public transport, and the necessity of an isolation period upon entry into Japan are all being discussed. Bach suggested the isolation aspect could be a reality, urging athletes to “show solidarity”. “I said from the very beginning, this crisis will require sacrifices and compromises from all of us,” he said. “If you need a quarantine to ensure a safe environment for all of the participants of the Games, then you need to quarantine. “Again, it is a responsibility for everybody, and nobody can just look at him or herself and say, ‘I do not want this’. “You have to show solidarity.” Throughout the media conference, Bach echoed the confident sentiments of IOC vice-president and Tokyo 2020 Coordination Commission chair John Coates. Earlier this week, Coates claimed the Olympic Games will take place next year, with or without COVID-19.
