BCL’s container ship Oleander (left) dry docked (Image courtesy of Neptune Group)Bermuda Container Line signed a contract for the construction of a new LNG-ready container vessel to service the New York-Bermuda trade. According to the company’s statement, the vessel is scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2019 and will replace the BCL’s current container vessel, Oleander which will be retired.BCL has not disclosed the shipbuilder contracted for the job, or the value of the contract.“It will be outfitted to carry dry and refrigerated containers, trucks, cars and other wheeled equipment, along with oversized project cargo,” said John Wight, chairman of the BCL board.He added that the vessel will have the capability to convert to LNG operation, which is being regarded as “the game-changer for shipping in the future.”BCL is owned by Neptune Group by Hamilton, Bermuda-based Neptune Group, and provides freight service from the port of New York to Bermuda.
The Court of Appeal has rejected a bid from City firm Mishcon de Reya to penalise former clients for serving notice of funding arrangements more than four months late.The firm had argued that Antonio Caliendo and Barnaby Holdings, represented by international firm DLA Piper, should be denied relief from sanctions after the late notice of a conditional fee arrangement and after-the-event insurance.Mishcon de Reya had acted for the claimants in their sale and disposal of shares in the London football club QPR, but they subsequently brought a professional negligence claim against the firm.DLA Piper had entered the funding arrangement in February 2013 and informed Mishcon de Reya in June 2013 – despite notice supposed to have been given within seven days.Civil Procedure Rules are that unless the court orders otherwise, late notice of funding arrangements will result in sanctions.In October 2014, Mr Justice Hildyard granted relief from sanctions, giving weight to the presumption that the claimants would start off on a ‘false footing’ as to exposure in the event of liability against it being established at trial.Following a hearing in the Court of Appeal in July, Lady Justice Gloster (pictured) said the late notice did not result in any material change of stance by Mishcon de Reya, such as the start of settlement proceedings.‘There is no good reason to believe that there would have been any change of position on the part of the appellants, if notification had been given three and a half months months earlier,’ said Gloster.The judge said that following the Denton ruling of 2013, even if there is a serious or significant breach of rules, and there is no good reason for the breach, it does not automatically follow that relief will be refused.Gloster added that it was ‘preferable to grant relief, rather than encourage what would inevitably be satellite litigation involving the respondents suing their own solicitors’.The appeal was dismissed, a decision agreed by Lords Justice Patten and Christopher Clarke.
RUSSIA: Russian Railways and Ural Locomotives signed an order for 221 2ES10 twin-section electric locomotives at the 1520 Strategic Partnership conference in Sochi on May 27. A prototype will be rolled out in 2010 with deliveries beginning in 2011. The value of the contract was not disclosed.The Ural Locomotives joint venture was formally established the previous week by Siemens (49%) and OJSC Sinara Transport Machines (51%), under the terms of an agreement signed at last year’s 1520 Strategic Partnership conference. The joint venture will produce modern electric locomotives at Verkhnyaya Pyshma near Yekaterinburg. Siemens said it is to invest over €100m setting up production, which it expects will create 800 jobs. A further €20m will be spent expanding Siemens’ St Petersburg plant to produce traction equipment, and a rolling stock engineering centre is being set up in Moscow creating around 200 jobs. ‘Russia is a strategic growth market for rail technology’, said Siemens Mobility CEO Hans-Jörg Grundmann. ‘Our all-around portfolio for modern and eco-friendly transportation technology positions us perfectly in the rolling stock and rail infrastructure markets. We also wish to remain a dependable partner for RZD in future and will continue to place great importance on local manufacture in Russia.’ * A contract was also signed on May 28 between RZD and a joint venture company formed by Transmash Holding and Alstom Transport for the supply of 200 EP20 electric locomotives. Designed for mixed traffic use, the 200 km/h multi-system locomotives would be built at the Novocherkassk Electric Locomotive Plant for delivery in 2012-20.

Share By MARINA WISESpecial to the PRESSThe week before Memorial Day Weekend, eight artists were materializing the vision that they had held for quite some time—to leave an artistic stamp on the beaches of South Padre Island. To achieve this goal, they coated various lifeguard towers along the coast with unique paintings.Jim Pigg, who operates the Beach Rescue program, recruited a core nucleus of talented painters to fulfill the job. Beach Rescue provided all the paint used.“Jim Pigg was looking any artists willing to do this project because he believed it would make a difference as we (the painters) all have believed,” said Christina Salazar, one of the artists involved and owner of Indigo Art & Apparel in Port Isabel. “He opened the door for all of the artists from the area and from a far.”While working on their task, the painters took many of South Padre’s natural elements into account. One beach fundamental, though, held the most importance in the hearts and creativity of the artists.“Our biggest inspiration was the ocean,” Salazar said. “Though we all knew that what we were doing was bigger than all of us.”Want the whole story?
