The Canadian Coast Guard is decommissioning its oldest serving vessel after 59 years of service.The offshore oceanographic and hydrographic survey vessel CCGS Hudson, taken out of service after a starboard propulsion motor failure in November 2021, will be decommissioned due to the scale of the problem and the time and cost to repair it, combined with the costs associated with an upcoming period of regulatory compliance work."It has been determined that the ship is beyond economical repair and further investment would not allow it to return to reliable service," the Coast Guard said on Wednesday.Built at Saint John Shipbuilding, the 90.
As a marine engineer focused on vessel design, I’ve watched the narrative on battery-electric and battery-hybrid vessels evolve from skepticism, to curiosity, to genuine acceptance in just a few short years. The passenger transportation sector, in particular, has been quick to embrace the concept of vessel electrification as a means of improving economics and reducing emissions. This makes sense as many ferry operations are excellent candidates for battery and hybrid-electric power due to their proximity to urban electrical grids, point-to-point operations and sensitivity to public perception.
Chinese forces followed and warned away a U.S. warship which entered waters near the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea, the country's military said on Thursday, but the U.S. Navy denied the ship had been warned off.The Southern Theatre Command of the People's Liberation Army said the USS Benfold "illegally" sailed into Chinese territorial waters without permission, violating the country's sovereignty, and that Chinese naval and air forces tracked the ship."We solemnly demand that the U.S. side immediately stop such provocative actions, otherwise it will bear the serious consequences of unforeseen events," it added.The U.S.

The company plans to use $38 million of the proceeds from the sale to reduce debt, with the remaining $6.5 million going toward working capital.
Classification society ClassNK announced it has issued an approval in principle (AIP) for the design of an ammonia-fueled Panamax bulk carrier developed by Planning and Design Center for Greener Ships (GSC).Ammonia is expected to be used as decarbonized fuel for ships since it does not emit CO2 when burned, however, taking adequate safety measures are impartial due to its characteristics of being toxic to humans and corrosive against materials. While international standards for using ammonia as ship fuel are yet to be developed, ClassNK published its “Guidelines for Ships Using Alternative Fuels” in August 2021 to minimize the risks related to ammonia-fueled ships for the ships
