BV publishes LNG bunkering guidelines

first_imgInternational classification society Bureau Veritas has published a comprehensive set of guidelines on LNG bunkering, with the aim of speeding adoption of LNG as a ship’s fuel by kick-starting the LNG bunker chain.Jean-Francois Segretain, Technical Director, Marine and Offshore Division, Bureau Veritas says, “We really believe that LNG has great potential as a clean fuel for shipping. But fears over its availability in the bunker chain are holding back owners from adopting it. Part of the issue is that ports and terminals wishing to provide LNG as bunkers and shipowners wishing to have LNG-powered ships do not have agreed international standard bunker procedures to work to. Bureau Veritas has very wide experience with LNG in the marine context and we hope that these guidelines will give ports, terminals, LNG suppliers and shipowners confidence to proceed.” BV’s Guidance on LNG Bunkering NI 618 provides recommendations on LNG bunkering, focusing on the framework to be established with the port authorities and the bunkering organizations before any commercial operation, conditions to be observed before, during and after each bunkering operation, management of emergency situations and the training of staff involved in bunkering operations.Segretain explains, “We have done a lot of work on risk analysis for LNG bunkering, helping owners such as Brittany Ferries make the decision to switch to LNG as a fuel. Our risk management expertise combined with our deep LNG experience means we can help everyone involved be more confident of a safe and standard approach to LNG bunkering.” “We are not talking about specifying the equipment, which will be done by the ISO, we are talking about managing the risks and getting the procedures and people part of this right. We can also provide training for all the personnel involved, from the senior ship management and the engineer receiving the LNG and the port management and LNG bunker staff delivering it. LNG is the future, and confidence in safe handling of it is the key to progress. We can deliver that confidence,” he concludes.Press Release, July 21, 2014;  Image: Bureau Veritaslast_img read more

Grayling promises ECHR bill in 2014

first_imgJustice secretary Chris Grayling has revealed that the Conservatives will publish legislation on the UK’s relationship with European Convention on Human Rights before next May.Grayling has previously hinted at his preference for outright withdrawal from the ECHR and, at a fringe event at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester last night, gave his clearest sign yet that radical change is on the agenda.Grayling reiterated his view that the convention is now too wide in scope and has departed too far from what its creators intended.He said: ‘We have a clear plan for change and we will consider withdrawing altogether. We have to do the job properly and the strategy and draft bill has to command legal respect. We have to limit the role of ECHR at least.‘We will take it to the ballot box at the European election. Last week [Labour shadow justice secretary] Sadiq Khan made a very clear statement to support the Human Rights Act. This is a genuine dividing issue and the public is on our side.’Grayling is one of a number of ministers minded to advocate withdrawing from the ECHR, and prime minister David Cameron yesterday hinted that he may consider joining them.Speaking to the BBC, Cameron said withdrawal is ‘where we may end up’ if Britain wants to ensure it can remove foreign criminals.Cameron said: ‘As prime minister, what I want to know is can I keep our country safe. For instance, are we able to chuck out of our country people who have no right to be here, who threaten our country. I saw we should be able to do that. Whatever that takes, we must deliver that outcome. And that is what I think we have the next 20 months to do, and put in our manifesto.’last_img read more
