New and Existing Members Boost London P&I Club Tonnage Entry (UK)

first_imgThe London P&I Club has increased its membership by almost two million gross tons over the past year. This increase reflects the entry of further tonnage with the club by existing members, and the addition of new members from China, Greece, Singapore, Turkey, and the UK.Ian Gooch, chief executive of the club’s management team, says, “The London P&I Club heads into 2014/15 after a solid renewal and further controlled growth. The club has seen encouraging progress, including continued steady growth in its mutual membership, which now stands at 43.1m gt.“On the one hand, the renewal took place against a backdrop of depressed freight markets in many sectors. On the other hand, the increases in rates and deductibles applied by our underwriters were an important part of the ongoing work on our operating performance and consolidation of the club’s financial strength. These competing pressures contributed to the few cases where it ultimately proved impossible to agree terms, while in a few other cases the decision was taken not to offer renewal.“The club is grateful for the support received from its members, and will strive to continue to provide a first-class, dedicated P&I service.”[mappress]London P&I Club, February 26, 2014last_img read more

HFW to host fourth P&I week

first_imgExecutives from the P&I industry are welcome to attend the event, the theme for this year being: IMO 2020: Claims and Catastrophes.The theme centres around a fictional case study set in January 2020 involving a voyage from Singapore to South Africa, a main engine failure and a collision between two vessels in South Africa. HFW said the facts of the case study give rise to a number of claims, catastrophes and other potential hurdles linked to the new IMO 2020 regulations, which come into effect on January 1, 2020.P&I Week 2019 consists of six different presentations discussing the new regulatory background and the potential impact for the industry outside of the regulatory context. As part of this, the presenters will consider how the new regulations may impact and link to other issues, and will also examine the implications for insurers arising out of IMO 2020 generally and in relation to the case study, with variations to tease out other issues relating to compliance (or otherwise) with Marpol Annex VI.For more information, please contact: events@hfw.comhfw.comlast_img read more

Production starts at IRICO rail plant

first_imgIRAN: Production has begun at Iran Khodro Rail Industries’ rolling stock factory at Abhar in northwest Iran, the company announced on February 4. The start of work follows the formal inauguration of the US$45m first phase of the plant by the Minister of Industries & Mines on December 22. Car and van maker Iran Khodro Investment Development Co established IRICO in 2003 with the aim of producing metro, light rail, monorail and suburban rolling stock. The company believes manufacturing in Iran rather than importing vehicles will reduce costs by US$300m a year. Trial manufacturing in Abhar began last July. The plant will produce bogies and bodyshells, and has facilities for sandblasting, painting, final assembly and testing. The initial output of 100 vehicles a year is expected to rise to 400 in the future.last_img read more

Florida To Start Reopening on May 4; Three Counties Excluded

first_imgFlorida’s Governor Ron DeSantis has outlined his plans for reopening of the state which will begin on Monday, May 4. The recommendations were made by the specially appointed task force, who also received input from Florida’s residents. As of Wednesday night, the state had surpassed 33,000 cases of coronavirus. Beginning May 4, Florida restaurants and retail stores can reopen at 25% of their capacity. Restaurants can use outdoor seating if the tables are six-feet apart. People are still being advised to follow the CDC social distancing guidelines when out in public. Wearing a mask is also still standard but residents won’t be fined for not wearing them. Bars, gyms, hair salons and movie theaters will remain closed until the next phase of reopening. Visits to nursing homes are also still prohibited. DeSantis said that the reopening of the state will be in three phases, but for phase one, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, which have been hardest hit by the coronavirus, are not include. As some counties in Florida have already reopened recreational venues with strict guidelines, DeSantis, on Wednesday, announced the first phase of reopening for the entire state. The three counties, which comprise South Florida, have been responsible for 60% of the state’s COVID-19 cases. DeSantis said that the three states are still trending upwards, in terms of positive cases and deaths, and thus they cannot be included in the phase one reopening. “Dade, Broward and Palm Beach are very important to Florida’s future,” DeSantis said. “We want to get them going. I think we have a good path to do it. But it’s going to be on a little bit different timetable than the rest of the state.”last_img read more
