   Newport Shipping Group has purchased 100 scrubbers, with an option for 100 more, from Chinese manufacturer Weihai Puyi Marine Environmental Technology Co. (Puyier).
   The bulk purchase of scrubbers, which Newport Shipping said is desgined to safeguard shipowners against any price hikes or production bottlenecks as demand increases, coincided with the signing of cooperation agreements with engineering services providers Harris-Pye and Goltens.
   “Together with our existing global network of dry docks, we can now offer the marine industry its first-ever turnkey scrubber retrofit solution,” said Erol Sarikaya, Newport Shipping chief executive officer. “We are providing shipowners with a true one-stop shop.”
   Sarikaya added, “Having secured an eight-month lead time for scrubbers ordered by the end of October, we can guarantee shipowners that their retrofits will be completed well in advance of the 2020 sulphur cap implementation date.”
   Harris Pye and Goltens will provide 3D scanning and engineering services, including basic and detailed design, prefabrication and, where and when required, riding squads to facilitate partial or full in-service retrofits.

   Newport said it has contracts for 87 of the 100 scrubbers purchased.

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.
