Design and Operation of Bulk Carriers 2009


In recent years the industry has been through a commercially unprecedented period and been subject to major regulatory change. Both commercial and regulatory influences have presented many technical challenges and many more lay ahead. 


Designers, classification societies and owners have faced the challenges posed by the introduction of the Common Structural Rules. Goal Based Standards have been developed further at IMO with the final elements expected to be finalised this year. Also at IMO, new schedules have been added to the IMSBC Code (formally BC Code) which will become mandatory in January 2011 and the BLU Code is currently under review to include grain and consider issues associated with high loading rates. 

Environmental regulation is also moving forward with the revision to MARPOL Annex VI placing further restrictions on emissions of NOx and SOx. The development of the IMO Energy Efficiency Design Index is aimed at stimulating technical innovation in propulsive efficiency as the industry strives to reduce its CO2 emissions.

Educational & Professional Development of Engineering in the Maritime Industry 2015 

 In recent years higher education has seen a growth in the collaborations between institutions to deliver educational and training programmes. The relationships are variously called alliances, consortia, clusters or partnerships. Some such links are between industry and academia, or between organisations that are near neighbours, both partners gaining strength from the complimentary nature of their individual activities. In other cases the collaborative activity can be between similar organisations that are located on opposite sides of the world. By bridging the continental and cultural divides these programmes can attract a greater diversity of students, and ensure that their content has international relevance.

 Fire at Sea 2014


Fire remains one of the top three causes of loss for marine vessels in the World Fleet, and is a major risk for Ro-Ro ferries, due to their open decks, and Passenger Ships due to ever increasing passenger numbers. The risk of fire may never be eliminated, but its effects can be mitigated.
