The article considers the state and problems in the organization of the educational process and practice of MSU(N) students. The authors substantiate the possibility of cooperation with one of the leaders in global shipping business, MAERSK Co. and the project of a new vessel designed together with shipping companies to conduct onboard training for cadets of Russian and foreign maritime universities.

The reliability of the main parameters of the Sea of Japan was studied. Based on a review of publications and information from the Global Bathymetric Database a conclusion for the need of special ship sounding surveys in several areas of the deep basin was drawn on.
All original values of the maximum depths of the sea are summarized in the table.

Article deals with the problems of creation of international transport and logistic center in Asia-Pacific, provided that such center is established on the base of Vladivostok’s city and port capacities with the plans to promote development processes in regional economy, humanitarian and international cooperation spheres. Author analyses historical features of Vladivostok as major seaport on the Russian Pacific coast and prospects for its development according to modern Russian policy, which is known under the name “Turn to the East”. Besides, in the article there are analyzed possibilities of Arctic trade routes and international cooperation in shipping transportation across them.

In the context of development and intensification of the ties with North Korea its neighbors evaluate the potential benefit of such variant if international sanctions are lifted from the DPRK. However, for the successful development of trade and economic cooperation with this country, it is necessary to create a high-quality cross-border transport infrastructure that will ensure stable inter-state trade. The article compares the key infrastructure projects proposed by Russia, China and the Republic of Korea to DPRK, and assesses the prospects for their implementation under international sanctions.

The author considers the problems of application of information technologies for predicting operation of ship technical facilities on the base of algorithms of risk-oriented control and supervision activities. The developed software package lets to perform remote analysis of activities (without interaction with ship owner), therefore it becomes possible to reduce the supervisory burden on business and to conduct an objective assessment of enterprise’s risk status. There are presented the capabilities of the developed software package which lets to perform risk-oriented predictions and to schedule the inspections of shipping companies. An assessment of the applicability of the complex and its usefulness for supervisory activities in the field of maritime navigation safety has been made.

The article presents the requirements of the international organization IMO to marine diesel engines to limit harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The necessity of transition of marine diesel engines to low-sulfur fuels from January 2020 is shown. The zones and dates of restrictions on emissions of nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides into the atmosphere are presented. As well, there are presented ways for reducing harmful emissions into the atmosphere from vessel diesels.
harmful emissions, marine diesels, nitrogen oxides, sulfur content in fuel, emission standards, emission restriction areas, scrubbers, low-sulfur fuel, dual-fuel diesels

The paper covers optimization of design characteristics of multi-purpose (multifunctional) vessels, one of the functions of which is ice breaking capability. The model takes into account the mission of ships and economic indicators of constructing / operating costs. The objective function used to find the optimal characteristics of a multipurpose ice going vessel has been created. The effect indicator as part of the criterion for optimizing the characteristics of a multipurpose ice going vessel serves as an assessment of the vessel capacity for servicing other ships in ice conditions, as well as its own transportation or other operations in ice environment.
multipurpose (multifunctional) vessels of ice navigation, optimality criteria, utility function, design characteristics of the vessel, the initial stage of design.
