State aid: Commission approves maritime transport support schemes in Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Poland and Sweden

The European Commission has approved under EU State aid rules five schemes to support maritime transport in Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Poland and Sweden. The schemes encourage ship registration in Europe and contribute to the global competitiveness of the sector without unduly distorting competition.

The Commission adopted five separate decisions, concerning

  • the introduction of a tonnage tax and seafarer scheme in Estonia,
  • the prolongation of a tonnage tax and seafarer scheme in Cyprus,
  • the introduction of a new seafarer scheme in Poland,
  • the prolongation and extension of a seafarer scheme in Denmark, and
  • the prolongation of a seafarer scheme in Sweden.

The Commission assessed the five schemes under EU State aid rules, in particular its Guidelines on State aid to maritime transport (the “Maritime Guidelines”) and established that all schemes are

The case of the Spanish Navy during the interwar

Torn apart by a civil war

The case of the Spanish Navy during the interwar is one of a fleet from a major player torn apart by a civil war. The only closest example could be the American Secession war, at a very large scal, or more recently, the French case in WW2 where the fleet was split between the Free French and Vichy loyalists. But the case of the Armada is unique, in which modern cruisers, destroyers, gunboats, submarines and aviation were involved in a modern in-fighting between the Republicans and Nationalists.

This story is about the state of the Spanish Armada after WW1 (where the country remained neutral), new construction programs and modernizations, and of course the divide between the two sides from 1936, ships captured, battles, and losses until 1939. This will be concluded by the Armada under Franco during WW2 and naval programs of that era.

La ONG Proactiva Open Arms podría enfrentarse a una multa de hasta 901.000 euros por haber retomado los rescates en el Mediterráneo, tal y como advirtió el Gobierno español a la ONG en una carta el pasado mes de junio.

Así se reflejaba en una carta remitida el pasado 27 de junio al capitán del barco, y firmada por Benito Núñez Quintanilla, el director general de la Marina Mercante, organismo dependiente del Ministerio de Fomento.

En la misiva, la Marina Mercante avisaba al barco

Quienes allá por el 2013 se sentaron por primera vez en las aulas de las facultades de Náutica y Transporte Marítimo -hombres en su inmensa mayoría-, hoy, con su título debajo del brazo y dados de alta en una empresa, se encuentran entre los asalariados con la base de cotización más alta después de los que han obtenido el grado en Medicina. Es lo que se desprende del estudio de Inserción Laboral de los Egresados Universitarios que ha publicado el Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades, que sitúa en 33.977 euros la remuneración bruta que recibe un piloto de la Marina Mercante, solo

The technology group Wärtsilä, Japanese ship builder Oshima Shipbuilding, and the classification society DNV GL have delivered the first results of their joint industry development project. At the recent Nor-Shipping exhibition held in Norway, the project partners announced a next-generation 62,000 dwt Ultramax Bulk Carrier design that is optimised according to actual operating profiles, and that will meet coming emissions legislation.
