first_imgzoom South Korea’s financially troubled Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has won a contract to build three very large crude carriers (VLCCs) for the Greek shipping company Maran Tankers, part of the Angelicoussis Shipping Group.The contract for the three 318,000 dwt tankers is valued at USD 250 million, DSME said.The 336-meter vessels will be delivered throughout 2018 and will feature high efficiency engines and the latest fuel saving technology to meet the IMO environmental regulations.This is the third time the Angelicoussis Group has placed an order for new vessels at DSME in the past eleven months. In June 2016, the company ordered two LNG carriers and two VLCCs, which was followed by an order for one LNG FSRU in December 2016.The Angelicoussis Group currently has 18 vessels under construction at DSME’s shipyards in South Korea and Romania.The new order comes shortly after DSME’s creditors announced a plan to inject further USD 2.6 billion into the struggling company as part of the restructuring process.However, the new funds will be provided only in return for stakeholders’ agreement on debt restructuring and DSME’s intensive self-rescue efforts.If stakeholders fail to agree on voluntary debt restructuring, DSME would turn to an alternative solution of so-called ‘Pre-packaged Plan’ (P-Plan) with creditors’ consent.Under the P-Plan, creditors are required to pre-arrange and submit a rescue plan in advance to a company’s filing for court receivership, and then a court would force a swift debt restructuring so that creditors can inject fresh capital in accordance with their plan for rehabilitation.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

When Hakeem Olajuwon speaks, people listen. And what he had to say about the Denver Nuggets’ JaVale McGee was significant.“No question, I see him as another star,” Olajuwon said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports in Houston. “That guy should dominate the league.”McGee has been working out with “The Dream,” and the Hall of Famer center known for his dazzling array of inside moves sees a lot in the athletic but unpolished Nugget.“He has tremendous talent,” Olajuwon said. “I give him all these moves and he can finish and he’s already skilled. So now just show him how to use that skill to (get) to the next level.”Then he added: “McGee is incredible because he’s not just a seven-footer, he’s skilled. He’s very agile.”And Olajuwon said McGee’s range and mobility give him a skill set to blossom into a special player.“Most of my moves are designed from a shot-blockers perspective,” Olajuwon said. “I am a shot blocker. What are the moves most difficult for a shot blocker? I’m coming from inside out. This move is very difficult for a shot blocker to block.“The moves that we work on are not for a stiff big guy. With him, he’s agile. The move flows. So I’m excited to see what he’s going to do this year.”Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri said on a Denver radio station, “Hakeem told me he was just amazed at JaVale’s physical abilities and his athletic abilities. How long he is, how quick his feet are. I saw him working on keeping his feet away from each other and not tangling; just little things that you take for granted. He worked high on his jump hook and on getting his lift very high when he does that. He told him nobody can stop him, nobody is as big as him if he gets his lift and his hand up. There’s so many things Hakeem is teaching him, and we’re very pleased with his work.” read more

first_img Updated: 2:13 PM  CAMP PENDLETON (KUSI) – Sixteen Marines were arrested Thursday at Camp Pendleton on suspicion of crimes ranging from human smuggling to drug offenses, military officials said.Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents took the suspects into custody during a battalion-wide formation at the northern San Diego County military installation about 7:30 a.m., said 1st Lt. Cameron Edinburgh, a spokesman for the 1st Marine Division.The arrestees’ names and details on the allegations against them were not immediately available.According to a Marine Corps statement, the arrests stemmed from “information gained from a previous human-smuggling investigation.” Eight other Marines were interrogated for their alleged involvement in unrelated drug crimes, officials said.“None of the Marines arrested or detained for questioning served in support of the Southwest Border Support mission,” according to the Marine Corps statement. “1st Marine Division is committed to justice and the rule of law, and we will continue to fully cooperate with NCIS on this matter.”The prior case that “sort of opened the door” to the new arrests involved Camp Pendleton Marines Byron Darnell Law II and David Javier Salazar- Quintero, who were taken into custody three weeks ago, Edinburgh said.On July 3, Border Patrol agents investigating suspected human- smuggling activity in the southeastern reaches of San Diego County pulled over a small black car near Boulevard, according to a federal complaint.Inside the vehicle were Law, Salazar-Quintero and three Mexican nationals in the United States illegally, the court document states. The two servicemen were taken into custody on suspicion of transporting undocumented immigrants for financial gain.Law and Salazar-Quintero are being prosecuted in federal court. The newly arrested Marines’ cases are in the military justice system “for the time being,” though they could wind up in the civilian legal arena, as well, Edinburgh noted.
