   Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd. (MOL) on Thursday announced the introduction of Vessel View VR to allow virtual visits to the VLCC Suzukasan.
   The Suzukasan, delivered Oct. 12, is the second vessel, following the car carrier Beluga Ace, to feature the virtual reality technology. Vessel View VR combines VR Solution, developed by NURVE Inc., with 360-degree photos and videos taken at various areas onboard.
   The Suzukasan can transport about 300,000 tons of crude oil in a single voyage. It takes a long time to visit every area on this huge vessel — 339.5 meters long and 60 meters wide, MOL said, pointing out that as a vessel carrying dangerous goods, safety rules are strict, particularly on deck, where any open flame and even electronic devices are prohibited. That makes it all the more difficult to keep records of everything during an in-person visit.
   MOL said Vessel View VR enables a virtual ship visit anytime and anywhere.

Shipping is now in the crosshair of the cyber criminal or activist. But the maritime industry still believes it is enough to have a Level 1 solution to protect against a Level 4 threat.

Union Pacific’s net income for Q1 2019 reached $1.4 billion, while CSX’s stood at $834 million and KCS’ totaled $103 million.
