Oct. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Following are comments from Peter Sand, an analyst at the Baltic and International Maritime Council, a Bagsvaerd, Denmark-based group whose ship-owner members control about 65 percent of the merchant fleet.

Sand commented by e-mail yesterday about the leaking of waste into the sea following the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power station disaster in April 2011:

“Right now, if we can trust the reports we see, hear and get, shipping is not at risk. However, as the Fukushima accident has still to come to a stop, it still develops unfortunately.”

“Bimco members were very alert and protected themselves when the accident happened back in 2011. We received a lot of requests back then. This time around, owners have dealt with it as a part of daily operations.”
