Sad to hear that the Pasig River Ferry services are still suspended.

May I ask why are the ships of Sulpicio Lines still running? I thought after the Princess of the Stars they were banned from operating again. This company has the enviable record of having the worst peace time maritime disaster in the world (1987). I think the owners, directors of Suspicious Lines should be in life imprisonment for all the lives they snuffed out.

Let's hope so. But does anyone check if they're real cargo? Could be cargo of the human kind. I still think they should banned for life considering the Princess of Stars dumped toxic fertilizer cargo in Sibuyan Sea.

Japan holds the most efficient record in loading car carriers. based on experience,6,800 cars can be loaded and fully lashed in 12hrs. with 6 gangs of stevedores doing the operation.each gang have 6-8drivers. the only thing that would take time are those 2nd hand units because most of them have dead batteries or no engine at all and it has to be towed onboard.

USS Guardian sits aground on Tubbataha Reef. by Official U.S. Navy Imagery, on Flickr

Quote:
SULU SEA (Feb. 8, 2013) The mine countermeasures ship USS Guardian (MCM 5) sits aground on Tubbataha Reef. Since the Jan. 17 grounding, the U.S. Navy has worked in close cooperation with Philippine authorities to minimize environmental effects while developing a plan to safely remove Guardian from the reef. With the deteriorating integrity of the ship, the weight involved, and where it has grounded on the reef, the determination has been made that dismantling the ship in sections is the only supportable salvage option. The U.S. Navy continues to work closely with the Philippine Coast Guard as the salvage effort moves forward.

DOTC pushes dev’t of linkages between Ro-Ro ports, highways




By Lawrence Agcaoili
(The Philippine Star) | Updated March 5, 2013 - 12:00am


Quote:
MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) is pursuing a project that would boost the contribution of the existing roll-on roll-off (RORO) ferry services in the country to help sustain economic activities nationwide.

In a notice to proceed, the DOTC has given Woodfields Consultants Inc. four months to complete the feasibility study for the central “spine” RORO project that would provide the Philippines with an efficient “spine” to facilitate the seamless, safe, expeditious, effective and economical movement of passengers, vehicles, and goods between the Luzon Island-Panay-Negros-Cebu-Bohol-Mindanao.

The areas – considered as the spine of the Philippines – would be connected through a combination of quality superhighway systems as well as modern, fast and safe catamaran RORO ferry services with matching port or terminal facilities.

“The ultimate impact of which will be reflected in economic growth, enhancement in productivity, creation of value, development of under developed areas and creation of employment,” the DOTC said in the project briefing paper.

Woodfields Consultants submitted the lowest bid of P12.336 million, lower compared to the approved budget for contract of P18.265 million.

The company edged other bidders including Transport and Traffic Planners Inc., GHD Pty Ltd., the joint venture of Schema Konsult Inc. and Petroconsult International as well as the consortium of Engineering & Development Corp of the Philippines, Filipinas Dravo Corp., and Phillipp’s Technical Consultants Corp.

The feasibility study would enhance the development and promotion of an effective and efficient intermodal or multimodal transportation network system in the Philippines and help formulate a Master Plan on The Central Spine RORO by 2020 and the Medium Term Plan on The Central Spine RORO by 2016

The DOTC said the expected output of the study would be the identification of road or ferry route options that would link the entire Philippines, and the existing RORO system to the proposed or future Central Spine RORO.

I just hope our domestic shipping companies buy brand new sea crafts from local ship and boat builders instead of buying dangerous, and ancient second hand ships from Japan.

Local shipping companies can buy from this local shipbuilding company:

Dansyco Marine Works and Shipbuilding Corp.

DANSYCO MARINE WORKS & SHIPBUILDING CORPORATION is engaged in the business of Shipbuilding and Shiprepair. Its yard and facilities occupies a 3,000 m2 area at their Office & Yard Address at No.1204 M. Naval St., Metro Manila.

The Corporation has acquired the services of its Senior Technical Consultant, Mr. Daniel R. Sy has vast experience in Shipbuilding since 1970 and has continually designed and built various vessels.

Since its establishment, DANSYCO has been continually broadening the scope and quality of its services. It has now achieved an outstanding reputation for quality shipyard services. Still, it is continuously upgrading its facilities and quality of its services.
