We appreciate the value offered by KR, HMI GbR (QSU & exag) and NautilusLog GmbH as they work together as a consortium, to offer a complete comprehensive service package as one team,” Sebastian Völchner, Project Manager NSC, said.From December 31, 2020, all existing ships sailing under the EU-flag and ships flying the flag of a third country calling at an EU port or anchorage must have on board an IHM verified by the relevant authorities or a recognized organization like KR.The same rules came into effect for EU-flagged ships on December 31, 2018. The regulation is expected to improve safety, protecting people and property onboard the ship and meeting any mooring requirements.“We are happy to be working with KR to provide this specialist service in direct response to increasing demand from industry as the entry into force date gets closer. We anticipate that demand will outstrip supply over the next year or so, creating a ‘bottleneck’ simply because there are a limited number of HAZMAT experts and specialist laboratories providing this service,” according to Frank Schneider, Managing Director of HMI GbR (QSU & exag).“We are proud to support our partners with the best digital tools allowing them to serve more ships in less time and effort,” Otto Klemke, NautilusLog GmbH founder and managing Director, commented.An IHM report will be linked to the entire lifespan of the vessel, eventually covering the building stage, its operational stage and the recycling stage.
According to the former English Premier League footballer, the Reds have the advantage when they visit Bayern Munich in March.Yesterday, English Premier League club Liverpool hosted German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich at Anfield, in a game that ended up 0-0.The match was the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.This means that in three weeks when these two sides meet up again, the advantage is for the Reds, who can advance to the next round thanks to the away goal rule.“This Liverpool side has built a reputation for scoring goals aplenty, but this was a night when the ball wouldn’t fall for them in the box and when they had a big chance to win it late on, it fell to the wrong man in Fabinho,” wrote former Premier League footballer John Aldridge on The Independent.“Liverpool got into some great positions, but their final ball was lacking and it means they will have plenty of work to go when they go to Munich three weeks from now.”“However, I would back Liverpool to score at least one goal in the return match if they bring their shooting boots with them,” he added.“Liverpool are capable of scoring anywhere and I would be amazed if they go 180 minutes without scoring, so the away goal rule could end up being crucial in this tie.”“A 1-1 draw in Munich? It is a result I can see coming to pass in the second leg and that would be enough to send Liverpool through,” he explained.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“What we saw at Anfield last night was a high-quality game between two top sides and you could see the attacking threat Bayern possessed when they got into decent positions.”“To their credit, Liverpool’s defensive line held firm in the absence of Virgil van Dijk, with Joel Matip and Fabinho superb at the heart of the defense,” he continued.“Fabinho turned in a great performance and bailed Liverpool out on a few occasions in the second half with his reading of the game and he should now be viewed as one of the most improved players over the course of this season.”✨ Another big European night at Anfield ✨▶ Full match replay ▶ @JHenderson’s best bits▶ Plenty of post-match reaction▶ Interview with the bossAll now available on GO: https://t.co/DAxFjfdrlB pic.twitter.com/xpk891SPb3— LFCTV (@LFCTV) February 20, 2019 read more
