New environmental regulations offer hope amid slumping market
The Japanese shipbuilding industry is again facing the prospect of building almost no ships at domestic shipyards, as orders for exports in 2016 plunged more than 80% from the previous year to a 24-year low.
Shipbuilders are continuing to operate their shipyards thanks to around two years' backlog of orders. But if orders continue to decrease, some of them will have no ships to build in 2019. Industry watchers wonder if shipbuilders can overcome the imminent crisis as they did on various occasions in the past.
The Russian shipyard OJSC Sredne-Nevsky (SNS) located in St.Petersburg is one of the few shipyards building vessels in a wide range of materials including steel, aluminium, non-magnetic steel and fibreglass.
Now it has added advanced composites to its repertoire using vacuum infusion with carbon fibre reinforcement, and claims to be the first shipyard in Russia to use this material. The yard is also undergoing modernisation with an upgraded slipway and additional construction halls.

Shipbuilders need to “take up more than 2.5 percent of their revenue” for investment in research and development, the ministry said.
The national plan envisages higher domestic production so that 60 percent of the equipment for advanced ships and 40 percent for advanced ocean engineering are home produced to cut reliance on foreign technology and enhance competitiveness among major shipbuilders.

Cargo Ship Sails Northern Sea Route in Winter
A ship owned by ZPMC Red Box Energy Services, a Netherlands-based marine-transport services provider, became the first cargo vessel to sail construction equipment along the Northern Sea Route—a shipping lane north of Russia—during the winter months. The shipment consisted of three 6,000-ton modules.
The Audax, which is capable of breaking through ice up to five feet thick arrived on January 4 in the port of Sabetta, on the Yamal Peninsula, where the components were delivered for use in the construction of the Yamal LNG project.
China aims to capture up to 40 percent of the global high-end marine equipment market over the years through 2020 while reforming and supporting its money-losing shipbuilding industry, the government said on Thursday (Jan. 11).
The pledges were laid out in a statement published by six ministries on the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The statement broadly outlined their plans for Chinese shipbuilding over 2016-2020.
The shipping industry sailed through difficult times during 2016, and today we take a look at how these conditions influenced the shipowners through an infographic showing the top 10 shipowning nations by value (USD million), provided by VesselsValue.
Greek owners retain their top spot but in the cargo sectors have lost nearly 12% of their fleet value. The Japanese come even closer to stealing the lead falling less than 1% in value. In the sixth place and down from the fourth, the German cargo fleet has lost close to 30% of its value attributable mainly to the depressed container market.
Bulkers have had a deceptively good 2016 following record lows at the start of the year. The top three bulker owning nations, Greece, Japan and China, have seen their fleets rise by over USD 4 billion each. This growth has been supported by strong acquisition following some of the lowest asset prices seen since the 1980s.
