Kevin Kelly of Xtreme Projects based in Port Elizabeth is passionate about keeping the oceans clean and explains the design innovations that his company has made to oil booms and the recent order for 2km of booms for the Costa Concordia salvage. Xtreme Projects won the Maritime Environment Award at the SAMSA Maritime Industry Awards.
A Maritime Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE) is a collective need to ensure Safe, Secure and Clean seas around Europe for its security and sustainability. Our combined ability to adapt to the modern global context requires the sharing of relevant information across all maritime surveillance sectors and countries, to increase awareness and responsiveness throughout the European Maritime Domain. http://ec.europa.eu/maritimeaffairs/policy/integrated_maritime_surveillance/index_en.htm
Transcript NARRATOR: For nearly 200 years the US Coast Guard has been tasked with preserving our country's marine resources. That means tending to the oceans by protecting it from the castoffs of our human lives. The Guardians of our shores and Stewards of the Ocean ... with an ever-expanding role. The Coast Guard's work with protected species began in the late 1700's, when the agency ensured at-sea enforcement of laws governing the whaling and sealing industry. Over time, however, hunting, fishing, and whaling took their toll on the animal populations. To address this legacy, the Coast Guard took on new roles and adopted two strategic plans Ocean Steward and Ocean Guardian. Together these plans are the Coast Guard's framework for protecting vulnerable marine species and their habitats. ...

This video shows the first version (March 2017) of the set-up that has been made during the Haptics in the Maritime Environment project. This project is a collaboration between the Delft Haptics Lab and the Marine Engineering department of the 3mE faculty. With this set-up, we can design and evaluate haptic (vibrotactile/force) feedback to assist tugboat operations in order to improve performance, efficiency, and/or safety aspects.

Why This Cleantech Company May Soon Be Printing Money International Cargo Shipping Demand, including dry bulk, crude oil and container shipments is projected to grow by over 1 billion tons to 8 ½ billion by 2020 according to data from Global Insight’s World Trade Estimates. At the same time The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the International Marine Organization (IMO) recently enacted a series of new regulations designed to reduce emissions from large ships and improve air quality. Large ships such as container ships, tankers, bulk carriers, and cruise ships are significant contributors to air pollution in many of the world’s cities and ports. In fact just one of the world’s largest container ships can emit about as much pollution in a single year as 50 million cars a...
Whenever a ship puts to sea, the Master and crew have a duty to navigate safely and efficiently at all times. Their actions determine the successful outcome of the voyage, the well being of the seafarers, and protection of the marine environment. Vessel Resource Management is the term used by the STCW Convention to describe the process by which the officers and crew work together to achieve this.
In the marine environment of Arctic Alaska, the seasonal presence (or absence) of sea ice influences everything: weather systems, food webs, migration patterns, human cultures, and resource development. Scientists from NOAA, UAF, and the U.S. Fish And Wildlife Service share findings and thoughts on 2 years of unprecedented research in the Northern Bering and Chukchi Seas.

A maritime demonstration of the Active Denial System was conducted in April 2006 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The Active Denial System is an advanced, directed energy, counter-personnel non-lethal weapon. The ADS projects a focused beam of 95GHz millimeter waves at a range of up to 1,000 meters to induce an intolerable heating sensation on an adversary's skin, repelling the individual with minimal risk of injury. .
Europe invests over € 2 billion per year in marine research. Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation programme, provides the right framework for scientists to develop new ideas tackling marine and maritime challenges. Its long-term, business-friendly outlook helps to get innovative ideas from the lab to the market. We need research, business and education communities to share ideas and results and shape the blue economy, as a source of sustainable growth.
