Shipping Review: World Maritime Day, d’Amico $755m Deal and Rosslare’s Concession

3rd October 2015

#ShippingReview – Over the last fortnight, Jehan Ashmore has reported on the shipping scene where among the stories are outlined below.

This year’s theme of World Maritime Day was “Maritime education and training” which was celebrated at the International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) headquarters in London and where other events will be held throughout the year.

d’Amico Tankers Ltd Ireland order construction and sale of two 75,000dwt product tankers with a Korean yard as part of a $755m fleet deal.

Afloat revealed as to the name chosen for Arklow Shipping’s second Royal Bodewes 5,100dwt trader cargoship currently under construction. She will be christened Arklow View and follows the launch of the leadship last month.

Consultants have been appointed by Rosslare Europort to evaluate the market interest of operating the harbour on a consession basis.

It was the place to be as 150 people attended the second Irish Maritime Forum held at the NMCI, Ringaskiddy, where speakers represented organisations and professionals from the broad Maritime Industry in Ireland.

The expansion of Galway Port faces an environmental hurdle, as parts of the plan would have a significant adverse impact on Galway Bay, said An Bord Pleanála in advance of next week's expected decision that already been delayed for many months.
