 Vega Auriga  (Frachtschiff)
vor 2 Std von Timsen

Future of banned container ship uncertain
The "Vega Auriga" was expected to sail from Tauranga in the afternoon of Sep 2, however it will leave empty of cargo. It was also unclear where the ship was headed and it has no work prospects in the South Pacific. The Mediterranean Shipping Company which is no longer able to use the ship on its Australia, Noumea, New Zealand route because it has been banned from Australian ports for three months. When the ship arrived in Tauranga on Aug 31, an inspection found the ship had 14 faults, 11 of which have to be fixed before the ship could put to sea again. Its cargo of containers was discharged at Sulphur Point. An earlier New Zealand Port State Control inspection found nine deficiencies. They were similar in nature to those found in the recent inspection but they were not the same deficiencies,. The "Vega Auriga" had departed from Brisbane on Aug 25 with three of a total 21 identified deficiencies remaining outstanding. The remaining three deficiencies, due to their less serious nature, were given three months to be rectified. When the vessel departed Brisbane, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority did not consider it on that day to be unseaworthy or substandard. The decision to ban the "Vega Auriga" from visiting any Australian port within the next three months was based on its repeated record of detention and multiple deficiencies since July 25, 2013. AMSA noted that while corrective action was taken at the time to rectify a number of serious deficiencies, they resurfaced multiple times and it was apparent that the companies approach to proper preventative action was ineffective. The German owned and operated vessel has a Filipino crew. There are eight officers and nine crew on board which was well in excess of the minimum safe manning requirements. The nationality of the officers was not known, but language issues on board were among those flagged by New Zealand inspectors in the list of deficiencies. Other safety deficiencies included crew records relating to hours of rest not being recorded properly, and the crew not given copies. Rest periods for watchkeeping did not conform to the International Maritime Organisation's Standards of Training Certification and Watchkeeping, minimum requirements. The Global Maritime Distress Safety System log book was not signed off by the master as per instructions. There was a fault in the forward mast navigation light that had to be repaired before the ship departed. The Electronic Chart Display & Information System appeared to be being used for navigation, which is against International Maritime Organization regulations. There was no single working language on board, which is against regulations. The emergency generator air inlet shroud parted from frame, the purifier room self-closing door not closing fully. The garbage placard at garbage station out of date, and there were no local control procedures for controllable pitch propellor operation. The starboard life raft cradle was corroded and also had to be repaired before the "Vega Auriga" departs. The oily rag bin in the engine room had no lid, which is a fire hazard. Communication between the wheelhouse and the enclosed wing bridge was inoperable and there was no procedure in place to compensate.

 Bonita  (Tanker)

Tanker saved 537 boat people
The "Bonita", was involved in two rescue operations off Libya, saving a total of 537 people, including 60 children. At the beginning of August, the vessel received a call from the Italian Coastguard and informed of a vessel in distress. The Gtanker proceeded to the location and picked up a total of 357 refugees, including 270 from Bangladesh. The remainder were from Syria, Nigeria, India, Sudan, Palestine, Guinea, Ghana and Morocco. There were six women and one 11-year-old child in the group, who were taken to the Sicilian port of Pozzallo for disembarkation. Ten days later, the Rome Rescue Center notified the "Bonita" of another boat in distress some 240 km off Libya. This time, 180 were rescued, including 59 small children. Ninety-four were Palestinian, 85 Syrians and one an Iraqi. The tanker sailed for Sicily and disembarked the immigrants at Porto Empedocle before resuming its voyage to Rotterdam for discharge where it docked on Aug 22, 2014.

On Aug 27, 2014, the master of the Tsakos Columbia Shipmanagement operated "Proteas", while en route from Sidi Kerir to Augusta in laden condition, was informed by the Rome Rescue Center a boat carrying illegal immigrants was in distress about 60 miles off the Libyan port of Marsa Susa north east of Benghazi. The ship deviated and arrived at the scene in the mid-afternoon, and the tanker’s 23 crew lifted to safety 221 men, women and children, all in apparent good health. The rescued persons were provided with food and other necessities with medical assistance being made available. The vessel resumed her original route to Augusta arriving there early on Aug 29 where the immigrants were disembarked.

 Walla Walla  (Passagierschiff)

Leak created small oil spill
The Kingston-Edmonds ferry route has returned to normal two-boat service after a fuel leak on the "Walla Walla" caused service delays on Sep 1, 2014. 15 gallons of diesel fuel spilled from the ferry before service began. The spill created a sheen on the water. Both the "Walla Walla" and the "Spokane" were surrounded by oil booms at the Kingston terminalas crews investigated and cleaned the area.

 Kaitaki  (Passagierschiff)
vor 2 Std von Timsen

Generator failure caused cancellation of sailings
The "Kaitaki" was due back on duty on Sep 3 evening after a failed generator part forced it out of the water for a day. A failure of the flexible rubber coupling on a shaft generator meant two of the four generators on the largest Interislander ferry were unavailable. With another generator undergoing planned maintenance, it meant there was no back-up in case the remaining generator failed and it was unsafe to go to sea on Sep 2, and also a scheduled return from Wellington on Sep 3 has been called off. The ferry will next sail at 8 p.m. Freight and passengers were being transferred to the "Aratere" where possible and it was crewed for passengers on the 10.45 a.m. sailing from Picton which is normally a freight-only sailing.

 Vega Auriga  (Frachtschiff)

Ship has 'serious deficiencies'
Watch staff having inadequate rest periods, a faulty navigation light and no common language among personnel were included in the list of problems found on board the Vega Auriga. An inspection report supplied by Maritime New Zealand to the Bay of Plenty Times revealed a list of 14 problems on the container ship, which arrived in Tauranga on Sunday. Deficiencies included rest periods for watchkeeping staff not conforming to minimum requirements, a lack of a common working language on board, corrosion on a life raft cradle and an oily rag bin in the engine room with no lids. There were no local control procedures for the ship's Controllable Pitch Propeller, or CPP, which needs to be adjusted from the ship's engine room and bridge. There was also a fault with a navigation light and evidence showing an Electronic Chart Display and Information System unit, known as an ECDIS unit, was being used for navigation purposes, which it should not be used for. Eleven of the deficiencies must be fixed before the ship's planned departure at midday today. Steve Rendle, senior communications and media advisor for Maritime New Zealand, said the deficiencies indicated poor management and a lack of resources. The number of deficiencies could be considered "pretty serious", he added. Mr Rendle said the vessel would be inspected again in the morning to ensure the deficiencies were rectified. Mediterranean Shipping Company New Zealand operations manager Mike Hodgins said the company had hired the Vega Auriga to go through Australia, Noumea and New Zealand. However, the recent developments meant the contract ended when the cargo was unloaded in Tauranga on Sunday. "We've off-hired it because it couldn't do what it was supposed to do," he said. "Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has said it's not allowed back in Australia for three months at the moment which was what it was supposed to do." Mr Hodgins said the decision to end the contract was nothing to do with the deficiencies found in Australia or New Zealand. "It was given an all clear when it left Sydney, when it left Australia. It had been declared it was okay." Judea's Mary Sanson volunteered to help clean the beaches after the Rena grounding. She said she was glad the ship was being closely monitored while in Tauranga and hoped all the problems were fixed before it sailed again. "It's better to have it where we can see what it's doing and keep an eye on it - and make sure it doesn't leak anything." The Vega Auriga was banned from Australian ports for three months on Wednesday. It had been detained three times in Australian ports since July last year and was declared "unseaworthy and substandard". - BAY OF PLENTY TIMES

Cargo piles up at Hai Phong Port
The volume of cargo piling up at Hai Phong Port has soared in recent months, following the Ministry of Transport’s efforts to regulate truck-loading procedures, as of April 1. Statistics released by the Hai Phong Customs Department showed that some 8,000 containers were stuck at the northern port at the end of July compared with only 4,600 units at the end of last year. The heavy traffic of inbound and outbound container cargo put pressure on the port, while enterprises also suffered losses, a representative from Hai Phong Port said. The loading and unloading of cargo at ports has slowed dramatically since control over loading procedures was tightened from April 1. Under the new regulation, containers must be divided into smaller parts for transport to avoid overloading. There is also a shortage of vehicles that are capable of transporting a whole cargo container. The Hai Phong People’s Committee on July 30 established a group charged with tackling the stockpile of cargo containers at the port. The large stockpile had also raised concern amongst other ports in the country. According to Le Tuan Anh, Deputy Director of Sai Gon New Port, as quoted by Tin Tuc newspaper, weighing stations should be placed at reasonable intervals to prevent traffic congestion during the inspection of vehicular weights. On the issue of out-of-gauge cargo, which currently requires a special shipping licence, an expert noted that these products should not be considered in terms of overloading. He added that transparency should be ensured in the granting of licences for shipping out-of-gauge cargo to ease the burden on enterprises. Source: VNA

Kurdish Oil Tanker Reappears Off Texas Still Full of Oil
Sept 1 (Reuters) – A tanker carrying disputed Iraqi Kurdish crude oil reappeared on satellite tracking on Monday near Texas, days after having gone silent with a $100 million cargo, but the latest vessel data showed it had not offloaded at sea. According to AIS ship tracking data used by the U.S. Coast Guard and Reuters, the United Kalavrvta, which has been in limbo for weeks, was still 95 percent full. Its would-be U.S. buyer has balked at taking delivery of the cargo, and Baghdad has filed a lawsuit in a U.S. court saying exports by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) are illegal. The KRG argues they are allowed under the Iraqi constitution. The vessel was anchored on Monday in the Galveston Offshore Lightering Area, essentially unmoved from its previously known position. Vessels such as the United Kalavrvta, which are too big to enter ports near Houston, use the lightering area to transfer their cargoes to smaller ships before delivery. Baghdad has made clear it could file more legal challenges to regain control of the cargo if it comes ashore.

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Aug 29, 2014, proudly gave an order to Kenyan Defence Forces to destroy the "Amin Darya" and 370,8 kg heroine at the center of a record heroin bust in July. The "Amin Darya" was seized July 15 at the port of Mombasa after authorities were tipped off that the vessel may have been carrying drugs. Authorities eventually found a reported 341 kg of heroin stashed in the diesel tank of the vessel. The seizure was hailed as the biggest single seizure of drugs ever at the port. A total of nine suspects were arrested as result of the bust, including six Pakistanis, two Indians and an Iranian. One man died onboard the vessel shortly after its arrival in Mombasa. President Kenyatta was on-hand to view the destruction of the ship from the air. The drugs were also destroyed with the ship. Kenyatta hoped that the public destruction of the ship will send a message to those looking to smuggle drugs into Kenya. The vessel was towed into the open sea by tugs under heavy guard with helicopters hovering above and escorted by three naval vessels "Umoja", "Nyayo" and the new "Jasiri" for the destruction and sank at 4.20 p.m. on a water depth of 500 meters afte r400 explosives blew up.

Controversial ship not allowed to leave Tauranga port
A ship banned from Australian ports is not allowed to leave the Port of Tauranga until 11 problems have been fixed. Maritime New Zealand boarded the Vega Auriga after it berthed at the Port of Tauranga at 11.30am yesterday. It was originally expected to arrive on Saturday but was delayed. Maritime New Zealand spokeswoman Sarah Brazil said the inspection took five hours. "We're not detaining the ship but we found 14 deficiencies and 11 of those must be rectified before it can leave port or New Zealand." The problems related to maintenance, seaworthiness and crew rest periods, she said. Before the full inspection was carried out a deck walkover determined it was safe for stevedores to unload the cargo. Ms Brazil said the ship would have to be checked and signed off before it was allowed to leave. The repairs were expected to take about 24 hours. The Vega Auriga was banned from Australian ports for three months on Wednesday. It had been detained three times in Australian ports since July last year and was declared "unseaworthy and substandard" by Australian Maritime Safety Authority manager Allan Schwartz. The ban was due to repeated breaches of seafarer welfare and ship maintenance, citing wage payment issues, inadequate living and working conditions and inadequate maintenance, he said. Ms Brazil said the Australian ban came under the rules of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006, which New Zealand was not yet a part of. Consultation on the convention had been carried out but it had to go before a select committee, be legislated and ratified before it came into effect in New Zealand, she said. Independent MP Brendan Horan called the Vega Auriga a "ticking time bomb that must be banned from New Zealand" and posed as great a risk as the Rena did when it sailed from Napier to the Astrolabe Reef. "The New Zealand Government should follow the lead of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, which prohibited the Vega Auriga from using or entering any Australian ports."

Tanker hijacked, cargo stolen
Pirates hijacked athe "V.L. 14" on Aug 28, 2014, off the small island of Pulau Tioman before making off with the ship’s cargo. A group of six armed pirates approached the tanker in a speedboat at approximately 10 p.m. LT. The vessel was underway about 30 nautical miles north of Pulau Tioman. The pirates were able to board the vessel from the stern and take control of the ship while gathering the crew in the engine room. The tanker was reportedly carring 1,2096 tonns of lube oil at the time and was sailing from Singapore to Bangkok. Thepirates sailed the ship about 10 nautical miles away, where two tankers were awaiting to transfer the ship’s cargo. The pirates also stole the crew’s personal belongings and damaged the navigational and communications equipment before leaving the vessel approximately six hours after the initial hijacking. After the pirates left, the crew sailed the ship towards Pulau Tioman to report the incident. The crew was not injured during the incident.

NZ Interislander Ferry to Dry-dock in Devonport
NewZealand's KiwiRail says that the Interislander ferry Arahura has left Wellington for her scheduled bi-annual dry-docking in Devonport, having last visited Auckland in July 2012. Docking is being undertaken at the Devonport Dockyard under the management of Babcock’s New Zealand. The principal work relates to the vessel’s regulatory compliance regime, which requires machinery and propulsion equipment to be inspected and if necessary, repaired. Work to be carried out while the vessel is in dry dock includes tail shaft removal, an overhaul of the propeller hub, and crack testing of all propeller blades and securing bolts. Arahura’s rail deck will undergo routine track maintenance which will be completed by the KiwiRail track maintenance team. The ship’s bow thrusters will be overhauled with the support of Rolls Royce, who are providing trained technicians for this work. Arahura will then undergo a sea trial in the Hauraki Gulf.

Hamburg 5/6 berth ready for18,000-TEUers with Shanghai mega cranes
THE Port of Hamburg has opened berth 5/6 at Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB) with the gantry cranes that can handle 18,000-TEU ships, Hamburger Hafen und Logistik (HHL) has announced. "We are able to handle the world's largest containerships quickly and efficiently. The increase in handling capacity helps us to manage the peak loads from the ever-growing number of increasingly larger ships," said HHL terminal chief Stefan Behn. Berth 5/6 is now equipped with five Shanghai ZPMC gantry cranes with their 74-metre jibs can span 24 rows, well able to traverse the 23 container rows on a 18,000-TEUer. One hub makes it possible to move two FEUs or four TEUs. Each gantry crane weighs 2,400 tonnes and can handle of 110 tonnes. Berth 5/6 is 595 metres long with more than 1,400 metres of quay and 15 container gantry cranes available at CTB's port of Waltershof to handle mega-ships, HHL said. Modern, semi-automatic block storage facilities increase capacity two and a half times that of a traditional straddle carrier yard, said HHL. Every one of the 380-metre long storage blocks has a capacity of up to 2,200 TEU. Eight storage blocks were already in operation since the end of 2012.

Port Metro cargo continues rebound in wake of truckers strike
Buoyed by a rising tide of trans-Pacific cargo and shipper concerns over potential longshore labour disruptions at West Coast ports in the United States, container traffic and other cargo shipped through Port Metro Vancouver continues to rebound from the 28-day truckers’ strike earlier this year. But a couple of red flags were also raised in PMV’s mid-year numbers released today. According to those numbers, the port’s overall tonnage grew 3.6% to more than 69 million tonnes in 2014’s first six months compared with the same period last year. Container traffic volumes were up 4.6%. Foreign (54.6 million tonnes) and domestic (14.5 million tonnes) cargo were up 3.5% and 3.8%, respectively, compared with 2013’s first six months. Peter Xotta, PMV’s vice-president of operations and planning, said the biggest growth in resource shipments such as coal and forest products was to China, South Korea and Japan.

Subic-bound vessel helps decongest Manila ports
Port officials have stepped up the decongestion of Manila’s crammed ports by moving hundreds of overstaying freight containers to Subic ahead of the arrival of new shipments for the Christmas season. A chartered vessel, MV Asterix, left the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) Thursday morning en route to Subic carrying 1,154 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) said. The vessel is expected to be back in Manila over the weekend to carry the remainder of the estimated 3,000 TEUs initially marked for transfer by the PPA, Bureau of Customs and port operators International Container Terminal Services Inc. and Asian Terminals Inc. The number may still increase in the next few days. Businessmen affected by the congestion have blamed it on the expanded daytime truck ban implemented by the Manila city government since February. The ban slowed down deliveries and the movement of cargo out of the port.

Tall ship aground off Oban
The Oban Lifeboat was tasked on Aug 30, 2014, at 2:37 p.m. by Stornoway Coastguard to assist athe "Flying Durchman" which had gone aground on a reef known as "The Scrat" in Oban Bay. ​The vessel had fortunately gone aground only an hour after low water. This meant that the safest option for both the vessel and the people onboard was simply to wait for the rising tide to float the vessel off. However, when any vessel runs aground there is always the possibility of damage being sustained so to ensure the safety of all passengers they were disembarked by two local RIBs. The Oban Lifeboat "Mora Edith MacDonald" remained by the vessel until she was safely free of the reef a few hours later. One of the volunteer crew was placed aboard the vessel throughout this time to provide any necessary assistance to the crew. Once the vessel was afloat a towline was passed and she was taken to the North Pier in Oban. The lifeboat then returned to station shortly after 6 p.m. Report with photo: rnli.org/NewsCent...

Monkeys Hitch Ride from Malaysia to Rotterdam on Maersk Vessel
Holidaying monkeys decided to spend some time away from their Malaysian home by boarding the 15,550-container EUGEN MAERSK and travelling to Rotterdam. Five tailed macaque monkeys were found on the vessel en route from Tanjung Pelepas, with the crew contacting Copenhagen Zoo, who provided advice on how to house and feed their unexpected passengers. They subsequently kept the monkeys in a makeshift cage for the remainder of the journey and provided them with appropriate food and drink. After being sent photos, the zoo estimated that Maersk had found one older male and one younger male alongside two females and a youngster. The EUGEN MAERSK enroute Antwerp – Photo : Willem Kruit © Before calling at Rotterdam, the vessel and Maersk Line made contact with the authorities to determine quarantine requirements among other advice to best ensure the health and safety of the primates while they were aboard the ship. The monkeys have been released to the authorities at the Dutch monkey foundation, ‘Stichting AAP’. Although this is an occurrence that is not so common, it is not the first time that a monkey has been stowed away on a Maersk ship. Back in 2011, a monkey was found on the 8,160-teu SKAGEN MAERSK.
