Kyokuyo to Build One of the Biggest

first_imgKyokuyo Shipyard Corporation will build a 540TEU container carrier for Kobe-based Imoto Lines, Ltd., a leading company for Japan’s domestic sea transport.This next generation domestic liner is the result of ‘chemical reaction’ between experience and expertise of the two companies.To meet the increasing demand in domestic transportation (for both normal and reverse logistics) as well as in feeder service to cope with enlarging international container carriers, the ship is designed to have the biggest loading capacity for a Japanese ‘coastal’ container vessel.With more than twice bigger than conventional types of 499-749GRT, she will bring a new dimension to the transport efficiency.From the outside, clean lines and Kyokuyo’s award-winning and patented SSS bow give the vessel a sleek modern look. The unique front-end shape is expected to save 5% of fuel consumption under average sea condition, by reducing the wind pressure by 30% compared with conventional hulls.The bridge and accommodation area are smartly integrated into the fore-part to ensure better visibility and crew’s comfort, by minimizing the impact of noise and vibration from the machinery. It also helps maximize the container loading efficiency.Besides her sleek hull shape, the new container ship will be equipped with many eco-friendly features that reduce the product’s impact on the environment: high efficiency propeller, fuel saving paint, F.O. piping system that prevents oil spills on bunkering, and IMO PSPC compliant coating, to name a few.Through numerous discussions with Imoto Lines, the best-in-class operator’s vast know-how and tons of ideas are implemented to this new product.“With the delivery scheduled in 2016, we are now working busy to tweak the hull shape, using tank tests and wind tunnel tests, and newly introduced ship design software. We can’t wait to build this ship that will set the benchmark for the next generation of domestic container carrier,” the shipyard said in a release.

Rotterdam Rules OK?

first_imgThe so called ‘Rotterdam Rules’ – officially known as the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Carriage of Goods Wholly or Partly by Sea establishes uniform and modern international rules governing the rights and obligations of shippers, carriers and consignees under a contract for door-to-door carriage that includes an international sea leg. The application of the new convention is designed to make international trade easier and lead to an overall reduction in transaction costs.The ratification process has sparked a lively debate. Some stakeholders involved in international trade are of the opinion that the new convention would be in the interest of global trade and would be preferable over the current patchwork of regimes in force worldwide. It is also believed that a set of rules with a worldwide impact should be favoured over regional unilateral solutions. The recent debate has however also drawn the attention to several shortcomings and uncertainties linked to the entry in force of the new convention and it is still disputed whether the advantages will clearly outweigh the disadvantages.Many governments remain neutral on the Rotterdam Rules, as there is currently no consensus of opinion on them by stakeholders in the respective countries.In countries that do sign up. the new treaty replaces older cargo liability regimes known as the Hamburg Rules, Hague Rules and Hague Visby Rules in those countries, one year after 20 or more countries ratify the Rotterdam Rules.last_img read more

Noor Minnies shares secret to longevity

first_imgNoor Minnies, from Heideveld, turned 90 on Sunday. Staying healthy, says Heideveld’s Noor Minnies, is the secret to longevity.Noor, who celebrated his 90th birthday on Sunday, takes a walk around the block every morning.He was born in Wynberg and stayed with his aunt, as his mother could not afford to take care of him. He attended a Catholic primary school in Wynberg but left in Grade 2 because his family could no longer afford to send him.The family also lost their home, and Noor moved to Grassy Park and stayed with another family member.At the time, he recalls, the area was mostly bush with very few houses. After a year, he was sent back to live with his mother. “My mother was a flower seller, and she went from door to door selling flowers. She lived in Constantia and had three other children with her husband. My mom passed away when I was 11-years-old, and at her funeral, another aunty took me home with her, and I stayed with her in Claremont,” he says.But this aunt drank and smoked and was involved in crime, says Noor, and he ran away to live with his family in Grassy Park. When he was 12, he started a job at a bakery in Lakeside, delivering bread to various stores. “I enjoyed working there and I had to look after my family because I took my aunty as my own mother. I worked there for two years, and at the age of 14, I worked at a factory in Retreat. There, I worked on the machines making boxes and cutting planks.”At the age of 15, he worked in a cigarette factory for four years. During this time, he met his first wife, Dina, and they got married when he was 19.“We would walk past each other on our way to work and greet and talk and that is how we go to know each other. “She worked at a hotel, and on weekends when I was off, I would visit her. We got married, and we stayed in Retreat, I rented a room there.”The couple had four children, Michael, Anne, Brenda, and Alic. Later, the family moved to Heideveld. Noor and Dina belonged to the St Lukes Church in Diep River, and they enjoyed dancing, especially langarm. But at the age of 34, Dina died of TB. Noor was 48 when he married his second wife, Mareldia. She died in 2008.Noor’s granddaughter, Nuraan Adams, 22, says he was a strict grandfather but often spoilt her and his other grandchildren. “He always liked us to beneat and tidy and pick upour things. Although he was strict, he would surprise us by packing our lunch and putting three blocks of chocolate next to it and giving us pocket money,” she says. Noor has eight grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren.last_img read more
