first_imgApart from the ongoing health crisis caused by COVID-19, the cruise industry is currently also faced with an economic crisis. The entire industry and especially the cruise shipbuilding is now in a completely different situation than just a few weeks ago.Meyer Werft, one of the largest shipbuilders in the world which is based in Papenburg, Germany, is also feeling significant effects amid the coronavirus pandemic.“Our major concern was that our current and new customers would have to choose other shipyards because we would not be able to deliver vessels as required,” Imke Knoop, Head of Department Sales and Design at Meyer Werft, said.As informed, the conclusion of new shipbuilding contracts has been quite advanced so far. Meyer Werft’s orderbook is fixed until the end of 2023.The cruise industry often experienced difficult times in the past, such as 11 September 2001 attacks, the international banking crisis in 2008 and the Costa Concordia disaster in 2012. The sector has recovered relatively quickly and achieved positive results following these events.Today, almost all cruise lines have halted their operations for one or two months. The market values of cruise lines decrease daily and the uncertainty is growing. Around eighty percent of the entire cruise market is served by major cruise corporations. They alone currently suffer losses in turnover of about EUR 100 million per day, according to Meyer Werft.“This current market development will also have a huge impact on our order books,” Knoop noted.She explained that Meyer Werft’s clients will not be in the position to continue ordering ships to the same extent as before.“None of us can predict anything more precise yet, but the impact will be immense.”In order to be able to deliver ships on time and keep the economic damage as low as possible, Meyer Werft will have to maintain production as long as possible, Knoop pointed out.Unlike its German and Italian counterparts MV Werften, Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) and Fincantieri, Meyer Werft has not stopped production at its facilities yet.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

first_imgStatewide —On Monday,  Governor Eric J. Holcomb today issued a new two-week Stay At Home order designed to limit interactions. While the Stay At Home order continues mostly as is, modifications and restrictions have been made to limit interactions among people.Retail businesses that provide necessities of life may remain open but should limit the number of customers in the establishment at any given time; implement hours for elderly and other vulnerable populations, as well as limit hours of operation to restock and clean; and comply with all mitigation measures to protect employees and the public. A list of such businesses is included in the executive order.All other retail businesses may remain open if they restrict sales to online or call-in ordering with delivery or curbside pickup.Professional services should be conducted virtually or by telephone.All campgrounds will be closed except for those who use recreational vehicles or cabins as their primary residence. State parks remain open to daily visitors.Hoosiers are reminded that all public and private gatherings of any kind that include more than 10 people are prohibited.All employers, regardless of type, must continue to comply with the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration (IOSHA) standards and safety and health standards established and enforced by IOSHA. IOSHA is actively accepting and investigating complaints of violations. The complaint process may be accessed at https://www.in.gov/dol/In addition to IOSHA investigations, Gov. Holcomb has directed the creation of a multi-agency enforcement response team, led by the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission to respond to and investigate other violations of the new order. Much like the enforcement of the restaurant, bar and nightclub executive order, this team will be charged with helping business owners comply with the order before issuing a directive to close a business.last_img read more

first_img Press Association Kevin Phillips has revealed he wants to sign a new deal at Crystal Palace and have one final crack at the Barclays Premier League. “I’m not sure if a Championship club can tempt me. I know what sort of role I’m going to be playing, it’s a bit-part one, and I’d rather be doing it in the Premier League.” Phillips is currently available on a free transfer with his previous contract at Palace having now expired but he believes a new deal to keep him at Selhurst Park could soon be in place. “Ian Holloway isn’t afraid to use me,” he added. “He wants me at the football club and I want to stay. Hopefully we’ll get it sorted by the end of the week.” Holloway is yet to add to his squad ahead of the new season but talks are believed to be ongoing with Peterborough for striker Dwight Gayle, with the fee rumoured to be in the region of £8.5million, including add-ons. center_img The 39-year-old striker scored the extra-time penalty that secured play-off success against Watford at the end of last season and took Ian Holloway’s side back to the top flight. Now a seasoned veteran, it was thought Phillips would not be required in the Premier League as Holloway looks to build a side capable of avoiding the drop. But the former Sunderland forward wants to finish his career at the highest possible level, even if that means limited game time. “There has been a lot of rumours around and I’ve been offered a couple of really testing offers but, at this stage in my career, if there’s any chance of staying in the Premier League then that is the place to be,” Phillips told talkSPORT. last_img read more
