Shortly after the alarm around 9:15 p.m., the boat speeded towards the freighter iwth 25 knots which was off Kiel Lighthouse then. Once alongside, a mechanic and a crew member trained as a rescue assistant were transferred onto the cargo ship in western winds of 4-5 Beaufort. It was decided to treat the 52-year-old patient aboard the "Marie Lehmann". Accompanied by the "Berlin", the freighter headed to Kiel. Both ships docked in the eastern port where the land based rescue service took over the further supply of the sailor. German report with photos: https://www.seenotretter....

 Key Bay  (Tanker)

Spain invited to explain the authorization to let the Key Bay continue its route
On Jan 18, 2017, Spanish officials asked their government to explain the decision by the authorities to authorize the"Key Bay", carrying a cargo of fish oil which was loaded at Laayoune in the occupied Western Sahara, to continue the route to France after a stopover on Jan 14 at the port of Las Palmas. In a letter to the Spanish Foreign and Finance Ministers, Florent Marcellesi, Jorge Luis Bail and Maria del Pilar Alvarez Leon, urged the Spanish government to justify and to clarify the legal basis for the decision of the Spanish authorities to allow the ship to leave the port of Las Palmas despite their knowledge of the cargo situation and the arrest of the Court of Justice. According to the officials, the fish oil, loaded at Laayoune in Western Sahara on Jan 7, is expected in Fécamp around Jan 20 after a stop on Jan 14 at the port of Las Palmas. The "Key Bay" was checked during the fuel stop by the Guardia Civil which inspected the documents allowing the transport of the cargo of fish oil. After verification, the Spanish authorities have found that the authorizations were issued by the Moroccan occupation authorities, which was a violation of international law, as such products can only enter the European market if they are accompanied by certificates of origin and health guarantees drawn up by the administration of the state of origin. Despite the violation of established international law, the Spanish customs authorities preferred to let the ship continue on the pretext that it was not destined for Las Palmas, but it was just in transit. In this respect, the Spanish representatives questioned the government on the legitimacy and validity of the documents and certificates issued by the Moroccan authorities in the territory of Western Sahara. They also asked whether the government was able to affirm that the Polisario Front authorized the exports of Western Sahara to Spain and the European Union. They also urged the Spanish Government to ensure that the competent authorities did not allow the landing of products which were not guaranteed by valid certificates of origin in accordance with European law. The Polisario Front has announced that it will formally lodge a complaint with the European and French authorities to denounce the illegal embarkation of fish oil by the "Key Bay" in Laayoune.

 Carib Palm  (Frachtschiff)

Auction of seized ship failed
The "Carib Palm" which was idle in the commercial port of Boulogne-sur-Mer since its seizure by the French customs in December 2015, found no buyers when auctioned on Jan 17, 2017. Anne Richmond and Julien Debacker, the two auctioneers in charge of managing this sale, had asked 50,000 Euros as security deposit, but no one showed up. The price of the vessel was set at 600,000 Euros. The ship may require a lot of money to restore it, so it does not interest many, even for 600,000 Euros. It was not ruled out that a new auction with a discount price might take place. The other option was dismantling the ship, to recover some scrap. French report with photo: www.lasemainedans...

Tank barge lost wheelhouse already in allision in October 2016
The 52 year old, Slovakian skipper who was at the helm of the "Maria Valentine" when she allided with the weir at Grave, was already involved in an allision with the same ship two months before. On Oct 22, 2016, the barge lost its wheelhouse when she slammed into the Sterkrade Bridge on the Rhine-Herne Canal in Oberhausen. The allision had been caused by a technical defect, according to the police in Essen, which investigated the accident. The hydraulic system had not functioned satisfactory. The "Maria Valentine" was fitted out with a prefabricated wheelhouse short time later. The cause of the allision on Dec 29 on the Maas was still unknown. In dense fog the tanker ran straight through the steel dam at Grave, pushing it three meters down. Because it did not break completely, Grave and nearby Nederasselt escaped a disaster.

Survivors taken to Cebu, sinking site to be cleared from container vans
Captain Napoleon Emphasis and 23 surviving crew members were brought to the Cebu Coast Guard station in the morning of Jan 18 to rest and undergo stress debriefing. The four others were scheduled to arrive in Cebu on Jan 19. A gale warning was issued on Jan 18, prohibiting sea vessels below 250 gross tons from sailing. But the "Meridian Tres" was cleared to leave the Port of Cebu for Tacloban since the vessel ohad a gross tonnage of 2,528. The lashing of the cargo were also inspected before it sailed. The water was calm although it was windy when they left the port. After six hours, around 8 p.m., extremely strong waves in quick succession pummeled the vessel in the waters near Dawahon Island between the provinces of Bohol and Leyte. Buffeted by strong winds and huge waves, Emphasis immediately called the company’s operations manager and sought permission for them to take shelter at the nearest port. His request was approved. But it was too late as the ship lost its balance following the collapse of its stockpile of 160 20-footer containers and five units 10-footers containers reportedly loaded with fertilizers, a car, and a forklift. The cargo vessel slowly tilted 45 degrees to port side. The 64-year-old captain immediately sent a distress call to nearby vessels which also alerted the Coast Guard stations for possible rescue operations. A crew member of the "Larcon Iloilo" relayed the distress call to Coast Guard substation in Hilongos town in Leyte which immediately alerted all Coast Guard Stations to get ready for a possible rescue operation. About 9 p.m., he was informed by Maasin Coast Guard Station that Emphasis ordered his crew to abandon ship. The owner was requested to send tugs and clear the area from container vans. The Philippine Coast Guard Marine Environmental Protection Command was sent to the area to monitor possible oil spills. Bunker fuel was reportedly used in the vessel’s main engine while its generators were run by diesel.

No charges for safety violations after death of Pinoy
No charges will be filed for safety failures that caused an elevator to crush to death a Filipino seaman aboard the "Moonray" on May 22, 2016. A coroner ruled that the death was an accident. Gerome Reyes, 26, died after the ship had left Southampton bound for Lithuania. Reyes, from Batangas, Philippines, was found crushed between the top of a goods lift and the underside of a deck. A police investigation was launched but no action was taken against the ship’s owners. At an inquest, the lawyer for the Philippine Embassy, Dr Anton van Dellen, submitted an argument for unlawful killing by gross negligence. Coroner Grahame Short, however, said there was no basis to support the argument that there was a case: “This was an accidental death, albeit a tragic accident. Mr. Reyes either forgot or more likely inadvertently touched the green start button as he reached for the contents of the lift, and was dragged into it."

The chief executive of the Seychelles Port Authority, Andre Cisseau, told SNA that, “The expansion followed a decision by the authority and the government to ensure that Seychelles remain the favourable port of call in the region.” Ciseau said that the development will allow the authority to serve a greater size and capacity of vessel entering the port. The project will cost around $107 million and is expected to start in late 2017 and be completed by 2021.

Port of Kiel posts record cargo with Handling up 5.3 %
Kiel posted record cargo and passenger handling figures in 2016. For the first time some 6.5 million tons were loaded or unloaded last year – an increase of 5.3 % over the previous year and the port’s best-ever result so far. Ferry services to Scandinavia and the Baltic region showed above-average growth, while trade with Russia continued to decline. Dr Dirk Claus, Managing Director of the PORT OF KIEL (SEEHAFEN KIEL GmbH & Co. KG) comments: “Kiel has achieved a record result. Increases of as much as 7.6 % were posted at the public terminal facilities operated by the PORT OF KIEL.” The port was able to win two important new customers in the past year – SCA and Iggesund Paperboard – and to open a new forest products terminal in the Ostuferhafen. “Investment in the paper business means we will continue to grow and can now set our sights on a seven million ton handling figure”, says Dirk Claus. “It is also of decisive importance that we have been able to expand the port’s logistics competence”, he added.

Subsea Search for MH370 Ends Without a Trace
SYDNEY, Jan 17 (Reuters) – The deep-sea search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 ended on Tuesday without any trace being found of the plane that vanished in 2014 with 239 people on board, the three countries involved in the search said. The location of Flight MH370 has become one of the world’s greatest aviation mysteries since the plane, a Boeing 777, disappeared en route to Beijing from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. “Despite every effort using the best science available … the search has not been able to locate the aircraft,” Malaysian, Australian and Chinese authorities said in a statement. “The decision to suspend the underwater search has not been taken lightly nor without sadness.” The last search vessel left the area on Tuesday, the three countries said, after scouring the 120,000-sq-km (46,000-sq-mile) area of the Indian Ocean sea floor that has been the focus of the almost-three-year search. gcaptain.com/subs...

Tanker captain sentenced to suspended prison after collison in Bay of Biscay
The master of the "Peter Paul" which had struck the fishing vessel "Rupella" on Nov 18, 2014, in Saint-Pierre-d'Oléron was convicted. The "Rupella" had been crossing the fairway off Hourtin when the 16.30 m-boat was run over by the "Peter Paul", carrying methanol and headed by an Indian crew. The watchman on the "Rupella" did not detect the vessel approaching on the port side. One fisherman who slept awoke, climbed quickly on the bridge and saw the tanker leave without trying to get in contact with the "Rupella". The fishing boat, thanks to a favorable tide, managed to reach its home port Cotinière in Oléron several hours later. Meanwhile, the Indian officers alerted the captaincy to Bordeaux. The "Peter Paul", enroute from Bilbao, had crossed the Bay of Biscay to Bordeaux. The captains of both ships were summoned to the Maritime Chamber of the Tribunal de Grande Instance, Bordeaux, in response to a breach of the rules of the Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (Colreg), in particular establishing rules of priority. The tanker captain saw that there were several trawlers in the area, he had to be even more attentive. Prosecutor Nathalie Mathieu requested 10 months of suspended prison against the two defendants. Only the captain of the "Peter Paul" will be sentenced to eight months of suspended prison.

TSB to probe grounding of bunker tanker
Investigators from Canada’s Transportation Safety Board returend to Cape Breton after the "Arca 1" was towed to Sydney by the "Tim McKeil", a powerful tugboat owned and operated by McKeil Marine, a Hamilton, Ontario-based firm that has interests in Cape Breton, and safely berthed at a dock at the Sydport Industrial Park. The team originally sent to the scene on Jan. 9 in anticipation of a quick rescue was recalled after it was determined it would take a few days before the ship could be successfully freed from where it was beached. The team was mpw being reassembled, but with at least one member coming from Ottawa it will take some time to mobilize. Once in Cape Breton, the investigators will have safe access to the vessel that is now berthed at the dock owned by Heddle Marine NL, a Newfoundland subsidiary of Hamilton, Ont.-based Heddle Marine Services Inc. The experts will look at the technical aspects to figure out why the power quit and the ship lost propulsion. Marine industry observers have been asking questions since Jan. 8, when the "Arca 1" lost propulsion and was pushed onto the shore by the strong winds of a harsh winter storm. The analysts said the ship’s hull was too flat and that the vessel’s outboard propulsion system was not adequate for rough waters such as the Cabot Strait. Report with photo: www.capebretonpos...

 Sbi Samba  (Frachtschiff)

Man lost over board off Queensland
A crew member who disappeared from the "SBI Samba" off the Queensland coast, and was presumed dead, may have vanished after drinking a toxic substance. Crew raised the alarm on Jan 12, 2017, at 6 p.m.when the 47-year-old Filipino man could not be found on board, and about five hours after he was last seen. By the time the Australian Maritime Safety Authority was able to launch a full air and sea search, the ship was now more than 100km away from the area, between Innisfail and Lucinda. Rescue helicopters, and the Townsville Water Police searched until last light. By Jan 13 the search area spanned 800 square nautical miles and was combed with the help of AMSA's search and rescue plane, six other fixed wing planes and the same rescue chopper used the previous day. In total, eight aircrafts and five vessels were involved in the search. The "SBI Samba", continued heading south for Hay Point, near Mackay, on Jan 13. That night, experts suggested the man - if he was in the water - had run out of time, and was certainly dead. After arriving at Hay Point in the evening, the "SBI Samba" was boarded by Queensland Police officers. Police were unable to elaborate on the nature of the substance he may have drunk but have said the death is not considered suspicious. Officers will now prepare a report for the coroner. The ship owners Scorpio Bulkers were in touch with the Australian Federal Police and AMSA following the incident. The company would leave the investigation in the hands of the AFP, given it's a missing person case. Queensland Police was leading the investigation.

Fishing vessel lost on rocks, crew swam ashore
The "Ingrid Elisabeth F-41-P" suffered engine failure at 1 a.m. and radioed a mayday call. 45 minutes later she ran aground between two rocks off the Makkaur Lighthouse in the Båtsfjord municipality in eastern Finnmark. The storm and strong fall winds made it impossible for the Sea King helicopter from Banak to pick up the two fishermen on board. Also the lifeboat "Reidar van Koss" and the trawler "Gadus Poseidon" and "Båtsfjord" were on scene, but with gusts of 40-45 meters per second, none of them was able to help. At 2 a.m. the "Gadus Poseidon” got radio contact and heard that the “Ingrid Ellisabeth” took in water. Also the patrol boat “Harstad” was deployed to the scene. As the boat went down, the fishermen, aged 45 and 26 years, had to swim ashore wearing immersion suits at 4 a.m. Two other ships illuminated the scene with their flashlights. Meanwhile, the police in Finnmark organized an effort to reach across the country and set up a patrol with three snowmobiles staffed by police, Red Cross and Civil Defense. When the wind subsided a bit in the morning, the rescue helicopter from Berlevåg took off to make another attempt. In a stiff breeze, the helicopter could land on a plain, and at 7 a.m. the two were rescued in good condition. They were taken to Båtsfjord in the morning.

He was taken to hospital where he died later. A 28 year old crew member managed to manoever the ship to a berth 2,5 kilometers further in Surworld where rescue services were able to board it and recover the master. The barge was loaded with eight containers and had enrotue from Bremerhaven to Dörpen. At the time of the accident it was very foggy, and possibly the master had not lowered the wheelhouse before passing under the bridge which was also heavily damaged and barred for traffic. Ship traffic on the canal was not hampered, but had to reduce speed when transiting the accident site as it could not be ruled out that debris was lying on the canal bottom.

On Jan 17, 2016, short past 4 a.m. the "Cape Leonidas" suffered engine damage on the Elbe at river km 675,5 at buoy 79 off Kollmar, blocking the ship traffic on the river. It dropped anchor at buoy 87. Ships bound to Hamburg had to turn around on the outer Elbe, and the boxship "NYK Crane" (IMO-No.: 9741401), which had just left bound to Rotterdam, had to return to the Burchard Quay due to the closure of the fairway. The tugs "Wolf", "Wal", "Bugsier 15" and "Bugsier 18" were called to assist the vessel fter it lost an anchor in the fairway. It had sailed from Narvik on Jan 12 with a cargo of ore and was bound to Hansaport in Hamburg. They were followed by the "Bugsier 7", Bugsier 22", Bugsier 18" and "Bugsier 2". After the damage occurred, the ship initially dropped anchor near the main fairway at 4.15 a.m. and was to be towed to the southern side of the river to allow ships to transit the river. The patrol boat "Bürgermeister Weichmann", the anti pollution ship "Neuwerk" and the pilot boat "Pilot Pagensand" were on site too. Due to the draught of 15,1 meters, the vessel could reach Hamburg only with the high tide, and the water level would be high enough to get to port only by 4 p.m., so ship traffic would be hampered at least until the afternoon. It was not ruled out that the "Cape Leonidas" may be pulled to the poles at Finkenwerder for the time being before reaching the Hansaport.

Stranded crew case a human disgrace
An ITF inspector has issued a last ditch call to the owner of the "Seahonest" and its flag state Panama to act to stop the suffering of the 17 crew members abandoned in Algeria since more than 200 days. ITF inspector Mohamed Arrachedi has raised the alarm over the case of the vessel whose crew has been stranded unpaid and unprovisioned in the port of Algiers for seven months. The only reason the crew hasn’t starved is because of the food and humanitarian assistance provided by the ITF, Algerian trade unions, the port authority of Algiers Port and the embassies of India and Turkey. In a letter to the Panama Maritime Authority and the ship’s owner, Arrachedi wrote: "It is with maximum concern and worry, that, once more, we are contacting you Mr Seyfullah, to ask you for a quick, complete plan to come to a solution to the situation of the seafarers on board of the Seahonest in the Port of Algiers. Sincerely, under all scopes and perspectives, not only from a legal or regulatory status, and/or a human perspective, it is absolutely unacceptable and non-understandable, that until now, and after more than six months on board, there is absolutely no plan, no programme to find a solution to the situation of the 17 crew on board (2 Turkish and 15 Indian nationals). The crew on board are suffering the very bad conditions on board, the cold and very heavy psychological conditions. The absence of a plan, and the absence of fulfillment of the promises from your side, makes the situation on board at the limit of what any human being can to support. We have asked the company to arrange repatriation. This has been promised many times. What is the real intention of the company? What is the company waiting for to start acting? Is the company’s plan to wait till the crew get more desperate and then accede to repatriation? The crew capacity to support more is at its limit. Please act and act quickly. The crew are looking forward to getting paid and repatriated. Your company can put other crew on board, and stop the suffering of those on board. It is your responsibility to do so." On Jan 14, 2016, one of the crew members sent the following SMS to Mohamed Arrachedi: “Is there any news or updates for us? Everybody are very tense, mentally tired and desperate to go home and anxious to know when and how our problem will be solved?"

Skipper and crew member of cargo ship released by terrorists
Park Chul Hong, the skipper of the "Dongbang Giant 2", was greeted by the former Sulu governor Abdusakur Tan at Jolo airport in Sulu on Jan 14, 2017. He was held in captivity by the militant Abu Sayyaf group for nearly three months before he returned to Korea on Jan 15, a day after his release from the southern Philippine island of Jolo. Park Chul Hong arrived at Incheon International Airport at around 4:30 a.m. While the captain's health was not bad, he was to be hospitalised for thorough medical check-up. Park and Filipino crew Glenn Alindajao were released in the morning of Jan 14 by the Abu Sayyaf, under an arrangement negotiated with the help of rebels belonging to the Moro National Liberation Front. They were then flown out of the island by a presidential adviser on peace efforts. Their vessel was sailing to Australia from South Korea when 10 Abu Sayyaf terrorists boarded it in October 2016 and abducted Park and Alindajao. The government had not paid a ransom. The ship's owner negotiated with the terrorist group who allegedly threatened to kill the hostages unless it received a ransom. The Korean Foreign Ministry also supported the release effort alongside its Filipino counterpart.

The man at first refused to be taken off the ship by helicopter, but agreed to be taken ashore by sea and the Tynemouth RNLI crew were scrambled. Sea conditions were very bad with strong northerly winds, a tidal surge and a swell of one to five metres. Conditions worsened after two RNLI crew members got on board to treat him, so the coastguard rescue helicopter was then called in from Humberside Airport, arriving at 4.18 p.m. The sick man and the crew members were winched off the ship because it was too dangerous for the RNLI men to get back on board their vessel. The chief engineer was flown to the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, and was well enough to walk off the helicopter. Report with photos: www.itv.com/news/...

Therefore, one of the four rudder propellers failed, the ship came perpendicular to the jetty and hit it. The crew regained control by using he emergency system. Then the "Texelstroom" could be bertheds with the three remaining rudder propellers. After resetting the equipment the problem no longer occured. But on Jan 15 at 7 p.m. the ferry was again hit by a technical snag in the steering. The Spanish system supplier was called to investigate the cause of the trouble. The "Schulpengat" was inserted as a replacement ferry after the "Texelstroom" was sidelined in Texel. In the meantime, operator Teso already looked online for possible causes of the technical defect. Repairs are covered during the warranty period of one year. It was hoped to have the "Texelstroom" back in service on Jan 18 as the "Schulpengat" had a capacity of 240 vehicles, 100 less, so that waiting times could not be avoided.
