• Ship Building Facilities in Africa

    (www.abndigital.com) Speaking to the MD of Slok Nigeria, this morning and he said he can't understand why we don't have more ship building facilities in Africa, why Asia dominates in that space and why dry-docking services like repair operators are so limited. For a company operating in the vessel arena it poses significant cost pressures and that is just one of the challenges. Greg Ogeifun, CEO of Starzs Shipward, Nigeria's only indigenous Shipyard, joins ABN to shed some light.

    A shipyard (also called a dockyard) is a place where ships are repaired and built. These can be yachts, military vessels, cruise liners or other cargo or passenger ships. Dockyards are sometimes more associated with maintenance and basing activities than shipyards, which are sometimes associated more with initial construction. The terms are routinely used interchangeably, in part because the evolution of dockyards and shipyards has often caused them to change or merge roles. Countries with large shipbuilding industries include China, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, Russia, Germany, Netherland, Sweden, Ukraine, Finland, Denmark, Australia, India, Brazil, Taiwan, Romania, Poland .

A shipyard (also called a dockyard) is a place where ships are repaired and built. These can be yachts, military vessels, cruise liners or other cargo or passenger ships. Dockyards are sometimes more associated with maintenance and basing activities than shipyards, which are sometimes associated more with initial construction. The terms are routinely used interchangeably, in part because the evolution of dockyards and shipyards has often caused them to change or merge roles. Countries with large shipbuilding industries include China, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, Russia, Germany, Netherland, Sweden, Ukraine, Finland, Denmark, Australia, India, Brazil, Taiwan, Romania, Poland . The shipbuilding industry tends to be more fragmented in Europe than in Asia. In European countries there are a greater number of small companies, compared to the fewer, larger companies in the shipbuilding countries of Asia. Most shipbuilders in the United States are privately owned, the largest being Huntington Ingalls Industries, a multibillion-dollar defense contractor, and the oldest family owned shipyard being Colonna's Shipyard in Norfolk, VA. The publicly owned shipyards in the US are Naval facilities providing basing, support and repair. Shipyards are constructed nearby the sea or tidal rivers to allow easy access for their ships. In the United Kingdom, for example, shipyards were established on the River Thames (King Henry VIII founded yards at Woolwich and Deptford in 1512 and 1513 respectively), River Mersey, River Tees, River Tyne, River Wear and River Clyde – the latter growing to be the World's pre-eminent shipbuilding centre.

This is a truly fascinating documentary that everyone with an interest in old, traditional 18th century shipbuilding ought to see! Se hur replika ostindiefararen och fullriggaren Götheborg byggdes precis som på 1700-talet! Denna dokumentär följer skeppsbygget, från selektionen av 200-åriga ekträd, till det traditionella snickeri, gjuteri och järnsmide arbetet, de 1.964 kvm handsydda seglen av linneduk och 20 ton handgjorda repen av hampa. Detta är en fascinerande dokumentär som alla med ett intresse för gammalt, genuint och traditionellt skeppsbygge bör se! 'The Swedish Ship "Götheborg" is made of oak. Oak timber is hard, strong and resistant to decay as it contains tannin. This is why oak has always been by far the most popular wood for shipbuilding in Europe. Oak has been used for beams, knees and planking. More than a thousand oak logs from southern Sweden and Denmark have been used. Other important tree species include pine, spruce and elm. Pine has mainly been used for the ribs, decks and masts, spruce for the yards and spars, and elm for the blocks. The new East Indiaman's gun deck has ten six-pound cast iron cannons. The cannons were cast according to a drawing dating back to the 1700s from Åkers Styckebruk in the province of Södermanland, the most important cannon producer in Sweden at the time. 18th century East Indiamen were mainly designed to sail in a tailwind. The rigging is an exact reconstruction of the original rigging from the 18th century. Built mainly using 18th century technology and materials. Rig: Full-rigged square sails Number of masts: Three Number of yards: Ten Heaviest yard: 1,7 ton Material of the mast: Pine, approx 37 pines Material of the yard: Fir Rope/cordage: 20 ton hand-made hemp Number of blocks: approx 650 st Hight above waterline: 47 m The sails are made, maintained and repaired by hand. During voyages there are always sailmakers on board to carry out repairs when the sails are damaged. It takes eight years for a sailmaker to make all the sails for the ship, which is why new production always is carried out. Totalt har det gått 4000 m3 virke, varav 75 % ek och 25 % furu i bygget av Götheborg. Allt virke specialbeställdes eftersom skeppsvirke inte kan köpas på vanliga brädgårdar. Eken behövde vara 100 -- 200 år gammal. 10 kanoner i gjutjärn, sexpundare. Originalet hade 30 kanoner, både tre- och sexpundare som försvar mot pirater och andra anfallande skepp. 1700-talets ostindiefarare var i huvudsak undanvinds-seglare. Riggen är en exakt rekonstruktion av en originalrigg för en ostindiefarare från mitten av 1700-talet. Tågvirket till den stående och den löpande riggen väger cirka 20 ton. För att manövrera riggen finns inga moderna hjälpmedel. Den hanteras helt och hållet med muskelkraft. Ostindiefararen Götheborg är ett tremastat skepp med råsegel, dvs. rektangulära segel, på alla tre masterna. Förr i tiden kallades ett skepp av det här slaget fregatt riggat, i dag kallar vi det ett fullriggat skepp eller en fullriggare. Riggtyp: Fullriggad råseglare Antal master: Tre Antal rår: Tio Tyngsta råt: 1,7 ton Längsta råt: 23 m Masternas virke: furu, ca 37 furor Rårnas virke: gran Tågvirke: 20 ton handslagen hampa Antal block: ca 650 st Riggens höjd över vattenlinjen: 47 m Samtliga segel ombord tillverkas och repareras för hand. Under långseglingar finns det hela tiden segelmakare ombord för att utföra reparationer när segel får skador. Det tar åtta år för en segelmakare att sy alla segel till skeppet, därför pågår ständig nyproduktion och reparationer av seglen.'

산은 "STX조선 월말 부도 예상…법정관리 불가피" Korea's once fourth largest shipyard is set to go under court-led restructuring scheme. Main creditors of STX Offshore and Shipbuilding declared today that they are done trying to revive the ailing company. According to Bruce Harrison... this could be the first of many such actions by other creditors and the shipbuilding industry... which is suffering from heavy debt following years-long slump. One of Korea's biggest shipyards, STX Offshore and Shipbuilding Company is likely to go bankrupt by the end of May... as creditors decided to end their years-long efforts to revamp the slumping shipping and shipbuilding industry. The ailing company's main creditors led by state-run Korea Development Bank or KDB said Wednesday that they reached a consensus to place the shipyard under a court-led restructuring this month. KDB dismissed the possibility of providing additional financial support... saying it would put the creditors at great risks of exposure as it is nearly impossible for the company to repay its debt. KDB estimates STX Shipbuilding, once the country's fourth largest shipyard, would need around 592-million to up to one-billion U.S. dollars to avoid bankruptcy... and that's considering the shipyard could finish its remaining orders by next year. Main creditors have also referred to past unsuccessful attempts to resuscitate STX Shipbuilding. Despite receiving around 3-point-4-billion dollars of aid from its creditors for more than three years since 2013... the company couldn't avoid recording operating losses of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. The creditors' latest move could send a ripple effect to the rest of the country's ailing shipbuilding industry. The amount of bank loans lent to shipbuilders is estimated to have reached 59-point-2-billion dollars... with nearly 80-percent of them coming from the country's top three shipyards, namely Hyundai Heavy Industries, Samsung Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering.

Dubai Creek. It's from here that Dubai flourished. The deep water creek made it an ideal port allowing Dubai to become a major trading centre in the Gulf. Merchants from East Africa, Pakistan, Iran and the Gulf states came here to sell silk, gold, fish, spices and frankincense and to buy pearls and dates. Sea trading used to depend on dhows and so boat building developed as one of the main industries in Dubai. Despite the discovery of oil in the 1970s, trade is still an important industry in the UAE, but these days most goods are transported in large metal container ships. Many of the original boat builders now use plastic and are more likely to manufacture pleasure cruisers. But wooden dhows continue to travel between Dubai and Iran and Pakistan. Most are relatively small and are built in Pakistan where there are many skilled boat builders and wages are low. Few Emiratis are interested in building dhows any more, but one family business is continuing the tradition. And not only that - the Obaid dhow building company is hoping to get into the Guinness Book of Records for building the world's largest wooden dhow. This dhow, the Obaid 10, is already one of the world's biggest. 60 metres long (196.87 feet) with a width of 14 metres (45.93 feet) it stands 7 metres (22.97 feet) high and can carry 2500 tonnes. In the old tradition the men use fresh wood to assemble the planks first and then shape the ribs inside them. The only concession to modernity is that rope and natural fibres have given way to nails. Ahmed Obaid Al Falasi's father started the family dhow building business more than 40 years ago. He says he cannot give up what his father started: "This is our job, our father's job, our grandfather's job. We cannot leave this job. If we close this job, what will we do? We don't know anything, only this job. We love this job, we cannot leave. We cannot stop." But he concedes things have changed drastically since his father started the business and that young people are not interested in working hard now. Most of the workers are from Pakistan and India. "The young man, the young people, the mind is different now. Somebody like cars, somebody like buildings, somebody like ... the mind has changed not like before." The Obaid 10 was so big when it was completed that it took several weeks to push it into the creek. In the end the workers succeeded with the help of diggers, cranes and tow boats. The Obaid 10 was heading for Bosaso, a major sea port within the autonomous Puntland state within Somalia, a journey of seven days. Puntland is an area in the north east of the country containing around a third of the Somali population. It declared itself an autonomous state in 1998 but is not seeking outright independence. The Obaid 10 is now currently in Yemen, a stop on its way back to the UAE. Obaid's dhows are used to transport goods to Somalia where a high mark-up on goods enables a healthy profit. Everything is piled up inside including second hand cars, tyres, televisions, rice, bed linen and canned fruit. The return trip brings cows and charcoal, although trade in the latter has been affected by a United Nations embargo.
