Welcome to Maritime Industry Consultants
(MIC) which provides a broad range of consulting services to maritime industry clients.
I provide strategic advice and counsel to senior management to develop and implement strategies, and identify opportunities,
which integrate corporate objectives into changing regulatory and statutory environments. This requires the a
deep understanding of the marine and transportation industries; knowledge and experience in all aspects of federal regulatory and statutory policy development and processes
and an ability to develop strategies to obtain successful results on behalf of clients.
- Direct involvement in a groundbreaking $200 million project to convert two ocean going vessels
to use liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a fuel and construct the first dedicated LNG marine fueling terminal in the United States.
MIC developed and implemented a successful regulatory strategy which resulted in the first approval of a project of
this type by federal agencies. Following approval, I remained involved in all aspects of the project, which
requires the development of entirely new regulatory structures, as well as development of new technologies and operational
processes. When completed, the vessels will reduce marine emissions far below existing regulatory limits
and expand the use of LNG among transportation industries. This project is an example of a true public/private
partnership which combines corporate goals, technology advancement, and clear public policy benefits.
MIC was founded in 2005 by John E.
Graykowski, former Deputy and Acting Administrator, U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD); long-time senior Congressional staff
person, shipyard and maritime counsel.
