  • How ships carry invasive species with them

    Invasive species such as the Asian tiger shrimp, which has been sighted 349 times along the US East Coast and Gulf of Mexico since first being sighted in 1998, can be introduced to an area when a ship carrying cargo from a foreign port drains ballast as it takes on cargo at a local port. Ships fill ballast tanks with millions of gallons of water, which can contain marine organisms, when a ship's hold is empty for stability. Ballast, including the marine organisms, is discharged when a ship takes on cargo. Sources: USA Today, Daily Telegraph

The map has two kinds of image displays: raster and vector. IMO (International Maritime Organization) - is linked to the electronic ticket and imposes the use of vector map in ECDIS due to the possibility of integration of the maps with other devices in the IBS (Integrated Bridge System) 2. ARPA (Automatic Radar Plotting Aids) It is a device used for the detection of other objects in the area and for avoiding them. The machine itself is connected to a Doppler log and Gyro compass it has the possibility of overlap with the navigation map which is good to verify the position of the ship. 3.

AIDAprima is a cruise ship being built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) for the German cruise operator AIDA Cruises. MHI was awarded a contract to build two new generation cruise ships for AIDA Cruises in August 2011. AIDAprima is expected to embark on her maiden voyage from October 2015, sailing from the Japanese city of Yokohama to Hamburg, Germany. The cruise vessel will be the first to sail from the German port of Hamburg all year round. AIDAprima has a length of 300m, width of 37.6m and a draft of 8m. The gross tonnage of the cruise ship, which will be classified under the DNV GL class, is 124,500t.The new cruise ship will feature 1,643 staterooms of 14 different categories to accommodate up to 3,300 passengers. The Hyperion Class AIDAprima will be the first cruise ship to use MHI's proprietary technology Mitsubishi Air Lubrication System (MALS). The system forms small air bubbles, which cover the bottom of the vessel like an "air carpet", thereby reducing friction between the hull and seawater when sailing. MALS reduces carbon dioxide and fuel consumption by approximately 7%. The ship will also be fitted with a detailed filter system, which will reduce harmful emissions such as soot particles, nitrogen oxide and sulphur oxide. The new cruise ship will feature 1,643 staterooms of 14 different categories to accommodate up to 3,300 passengers. The luxurious Veranda staterooms vary in size, from 20m² to 2,520m², and feature walk-in closets, two bathrooms and a convertible sofa. They also have a 6m² sunning area with space for up to two sun loungers. Deck eight of the vessel will feature Lanai staterooms, which will feature a winter garden and a large veranda. The doors to the winter garden in the rooms can be opened all the way to create a 32m² of open, sunny area. AIDAprima's 36 Panorama staterooms provide exclusive access to a new patio deck, housing the bar, a protected sunny area and a private water landscape. The 32 suites on-board the ship will have 53m² of living space with up to 82m² of private sun deck. Each suite will feature a separate bedroom, a king size sofa bed, two bathrooms and a walk-in closet. How this video was made: Long-term timelapse specialist MKtimelapse from Hamburg, Germany was tasked by AIDA with filming the first cinematic quality naval timelapse of a cruise ship construction. To do this, they used their proprietary timelapse cameras that can capture one 16mp frame every minute over many years and edit this material into a stunning timelapse movie.
