 Lct Lite Ferry 26  (Frachtschiff)
vor 7 Std von Timsen

Damaged LCT towed back to port
After the "Lite Ferry 26" was rescued a few kilometers southeast of Mandaue City in the afternoon of Oct 20, the ship was banned from sailing by the Philippine Coast Guard in Cebu (PCG) until further notice. The LCT was bound for Tubigon town in Bohol, located 52 kilometers southeast of Cebu City, from Ouano Wharf in Mandaue City. But one hour after its scheduled departure, the PCG received reports from its crew, asking to be rescued as seawater had entered the vessel. It was safely pulled back by two tugs from Lite Shipping Corporation a few minutes after the alert from its position 15 kilometers southeast from the coast of Mandaue City. It arrived at the Ouano Wharf at 10:26 p.m. and will remain docked there until authorities have released it. All 14 passengers and crew were safe. The shipping company refunded the passengers and provided food and transportation money to them when they disembarked from the vessel. The captain, in accordance with rules and regulations from Marina, will have to file a marine protest before Marina because the latter is the one who will grant them clearance to set sail again. They will have to prove before Marina why their ship is suited to resume its operations after what happened. The extent of damage was still being determined on Oct 21.

Damaged barge started spilling oil
Oil has spilled from a gash in the barge "B 255" off Port Aransas, but emergency response officials hadn’t yet determined just how much has escaped. The oil covered an area about two miles by a quarter of a mile in size, but some of the area was occupied only by a sheen. Along with the Coast Guard, the Texas General Land Office is one of the lead agencies involved in the response. The GLO hasn’t been able to get close enough to make a determination because they hadn’t been given an all-clear signal that it was safe to approach and that another explosion won’t happen. Also the cause of the ignition hasn’t been determined. The Coast Guard searched throughout the day for the missing man and will resume the search at first light in the morning. Responders have deployed a 2,000-foot-long oil containment boom around the barge. They also have 6,000 more feet of booms that could be used. At least one skimmer vessel that can vacuum oil was on the scene. The oil was leaking in “small amounts” from a gash that was high up the barge hull.

Longliner caught fire at Fiji Fish Jetty
The "Long Jia Ming 6 - BJ 4823" caught fire at the Fiji Fish Jetty in the morning of Oct 17, 2017. The fire started at the engine room and quickly spread into other areas since the vessel was made of Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP). Attempts by the crew to extinguish the fire was unsuccessful. The call was then made to abandon ship and pull her away from Fiji Fish jetty. At 1.15 a.m. the vessel was towed away and beached at a nearby shallow patch. The National Fire Authority responded to a fire call at the Fiji Fish wharf at around 12:35 a.m. The Fire Team used water tank supply to extinguish the fire. The fire also resulted in an oil spillage at the Fiji Fish harbour. The Fire Team was trying to contain the oil spillage at the Fiji Fish harbour as a result of the fire.

Treasure diverted to Philippines after destroyer on deck developed new crack
The collision-damaged USS "John S. McCain" – enroute from Singapore to Japan aboard the "Treasure" – has been diverted to the Philippines because of new structural issues and a typhoon. The destroyer developed a 4-inch-long crack along its starboard side while transiting to the Yokosuka Naval Base. Weather conditions associated with Typhoon Lan had already slowed the journey to Japan, and the crack’s discovery led to the diversion to Subic Bay, Philippines. Once pier side, experts will inspect the crack and determine if any additional repairs are needed before continuing to Yokosuka. The cause of the crack and the extent of the structural issues were actually still unknown. The majority of the crew has already returned to Yokosuka, with only about 10 sailors remaining aboard the ship. The "John McCain"’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Alfredo Sanchez, and executive officer, Cmdr. Jessie Sanchez, were relieved for what the Navy called a “preventable” collision. Alfredo Sanchez displayed “poor judgement” while Jessie Sanchez “exercised poor leadership of the ship's training program".

Large Ship Berth At The Seaport Of Emden - CML Supports Port Planning
Emden is one of the most important Northern European ports for vehicle transshipment. 1.3 million were transhipped here in 2016, and forecasts point to further growth. This is one of the reasons why the port operator is planning to build a large ship berth. The CML and the Sellhorn engineering company have carried out a nautical survey and an analysis of economic needs. For the needs analysis, the development of transhipment volumes was examined and a forecast of the expected demand for transport in Emden was made. The main result of this analysis is that new capacity needs to be created in order to meet the projected turnover growth. The new construction of the berth also ensures that ships, which are still growing in size in the long term, can continue to call at the port and be handled there. In addition, the new berth can temporarily serve as a transshipment alternative for companies in the inland port if the capacity of the inland port is fully utilised. In the nautical survey, ship handling simulations were carried out at the CML, accompanied by pilots from Emden. The simulation runs have shown that ships with expected future size profi les can already enter and leave the outer port of Emden today. Other important results of the nautical survey include recommendations on manoeuvring procedures, towing and mooring during the construction and operation phase of the new large ship berth. Overall, the CML investigations confi rm the high benefi t of the planned measure and the technical feasibility of a new berth between Emspier and Emskai.

Liepaja port to be developed for service of Panamax class vessels
Latvia’s southwestern Liepaja port will be developed into a port for service of Panamax class vessels, said Liepaja Special Economic Zone (SEZ) administrator Janis Lapins at the Latvian Ports, Transit and Logistics Council meeting today, cites LETA. He said that the port has prepared its development program for 2018-2022, assessing the port’s competitiveness, the possible development scenarios, strategic goals and tasks, as well as the projected results – cargo turnover, financial forecasts and planned capital investments. Lapins said that negotiations have been started with the Treasury on attraction of co-financing for the port’s development. According to SEZ administrator, it is planned to develop the port for service of Panamax class vessels. Such vessels can already now be served in Liepaja, but there are still some restrictions. Panamax class vessels are about 290 meters long, 32 meters wide and has 12-meter draft. The council on Wednesday approved the development plan for Liepaja port for 2018-2022. Source: BalticCourse

Kandla Port to have shore-to-ship power facility
Kandla Port will become the second major port in India to have shore-to-ship power facility after V.O. Chidambaranar Port, formerly Tuticorin Port. The facility would mean that not all the ships coming to the port will have to run their electricity from diesel generators. “In line with international conventions and the government’s initiative to reduce pollution from marine sources, the port has invited tenders for installing power supply arrangements to ships calling at the port when they are alongside berth. The project will have 1 megawatt capacity and cater to four ships at a time for their lighting loads,” said Ravi Parmar, chairman of Kandla Port. The facility is expected that emissions or usage of fossil fuel will reduce by 100 litre per hour for the vessels berthed at the port, which translates to approximately 12 kilolitre per ship for a port stay of five days. www.hellenicshipp...

Turkey’s Ceyhan port moors first oil tanker in two days
21/10/2017 - The Turkish port of Ceyhan, the gateway for Kurdish crude oil exports, received late Thursday an empty 830,000-barrel tanker from Spain, the first to moor at the facility in two days, Kallanish Energy learns from TankerTrackers.com. The tanker-tracking group said earlier yesterday “given the high number of tankers out in Ceyhan’s anchorage, it seems Iraqi/KRG exports are on pause. Meanwhile, Azerbaijan picks up the pace.” Another shipping source told Kallanish Energy a second Greek-flagged tanker arrived at Ceyhan from Russia and was moored. He added a crude oil tanker, Liberia-flagged, arrived at the port Wednesday and departed a day later for Italy. TankerTrackers.com said Monday Kurdish oil exports out of Ceyhan totaled 558,768 barrels per day (BPD) since the independence referendum was held on Sept. 25. Greece took 28% of the exports, followed by Croatia, 15.71%, Israel, 15.45% and Italy. 14.86% of the exports. The remainder of the shipments left for Poland, Spain and Cyprus.

Yacht lost keel and capsized off Baltrum, crew rescued in SAR operation
In the evening of Oct 13, 2017, the "Prodigy 2" capsized north of Baltrum island in the Northsea with a crew of three on board. At 6.45 p.m. the MRCC in Bremen received a semi-automatic distress call of the yacht. The crew initially did not respond. When communication was established, they were already inside a life raft after abandoning their sinking boat. The lifeboat "Bernhard Gruben" of the DGzRS-station Norderney and the "Secretarius" of the station Langeoog attended as well as an SAR helicopter of the Gerrman Navy and the emergency tug "Nordic" which was the closest unit to the accident site two miles north of the island. The "Nordic" was on scene at 7.10 p.m. and safely recovered the yacht crew. The capsized yacht was still floating on an air bubble in a water depth of about 10 meters. The castaways were hoisted by the helicopter at 9.25 p.m. and taken to Wilhelmshaven for medical checkups. The crew of the "Secretarius" tied a floating fender of the yacht to the wreck which emerged half a meter above the water level to mark it. During the night it drifted onto a water depth of five meters and was monitored by the multi purpose ship "Mellum". Winds at the time of the accident were three Beaufort with a swell of 05-1 meter. Obviously the yacht had lost its keel. On Oct 17 the yacht had run aground, lying on its port side, at the eastern tip of the island Langeoog in pos. 53° 45,732' N und 007° 34,580' E. On Oct 20 the wreck was recovered by a crane ship and deposited on the quay in the port of Hooksiel.

Tank of sunken wellboat remained sealed
Underwater inspections of the "Seikongen" by divers of the Chilean Navy on Oct 19 have confirmed that the oil tank with 67,000 liters of fuel has remained sealed. In addition it was observed that the nearly 40,000 salmons the ship had carried were still inside the hermetic pools, though dead due to lack of oxygen; so the urge was to remove them before the decomposition increased in order to avoid the increase of gases produced by decomposition, such as hydrogen sulfide. The vessel had lost stability upon completition of a transshipment of 200 tons salmon from the Pilpilehue center of Camanchaca located in the sector of Ensenada Ahoni, south of the Yal canal, in the commune of Chonchi in the province of Chiloé. The CPT Empresas Maritias SA, owner of the ship, has intensified their efforts to mitigate the impacts of the incident. Mariners of the Local Sub-Center to Combat Pollution in Castro of the the Fifth Naval Zone arrived at the scene of the emergency with equipment for containment of pollution and recovery. Throughout the night the Navy personnel continued to install anti-pollution barriers around the wreck. Only minimal residual oil amounts have escaped from the ship as well as 600 liters of fuel that spilled from two drums that were stored on the deck of the ship.

A Government Health EMS duty doctor provided medical advice to the crew to aid in treating the patient and unfavourable sea conditions. The distance ruled out a medevac by helicopter, and the ship was diverted to the nearest Port. While efforts were underway to arrange a medevac at first light the following morning, the TNPA (Transnet National Ports Authority) pilot boat transported paramedics to the vessel once it was closer to East London, but extremely rough seas and gusting to 50 knot Easterly winds prevented paramedics from boarding the ship. The NSRI Durban, NSRI Port Elizabeth, NSRI ASR, the TNPA Port Helicopter and both the SA Air Force (SAAF) 15 Squadron and 15 Squadron Charlie Flight remained on alert throughout the night in the event weather and sea conditions subsided to allow for a helicopter rescue effort. Medical kit was able to be transferred aboard the vessel during the night, and the NSRI East London made ready again on Oct 19 at 5 a.m., despite a wind direction change to Westerly winds gusting to 40 knots, to attempt to board the ship at sea but prior to launching it was confirmed that sadly the patient succumbed to his injuries and passed away during the early hours of the morning.

Rosterminalugol JSC, the largest dedicated coal port in the European part of Russia, part of Russia’s largest coal port holding Port Management Company LLC, says it has loaded the first ship bound for Portugal. It took 36 hours to load the Panamax ship Sea Tribute with 77,500 t of thermal coal. Having the loading completed on 18 October 2017 the ship set sail for a port of Sines (south-west of Portugal). Rosterminalugol says it is permanently expanding the geography of supplies. As of today, coal is shipped from the terminal to more than 20 countries including Germany, UK, Israel, Brasil and Morocco. The list is now expanded with Portugal, a country with great industry potential and insufficient natural resources. Rosterminalugol JSC (port Ust-Luga, Leningrad Region) is the largest dedicated coal terminal in the North-West region of Russia. The terminal built with the application of the innovative technologies is intended to supply Russian coal produced in Kuzbass and other coal fields to the customers in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Latin America. The terminal was founded in 1996 under the programme on establishment of a commercial seaport in Ust-Luga. Phase II of the port – automated transshipment facility – was put into operation in 2006 in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin. In 2016, Rosterminalugol entered the holding run by Port Management Company LLC

Record shipment marks ABP Ipswich and Glencore support of UK farmer
ABP’s Port of Ipswich has reported handling a record 12,000 tonne shipment of beans for its customer Glencore Agriculture UK, supporting local farmers and confirming its place as the UK’s number one agricultural export port. Marking the largest ever shipment of animal feed beans to be exported by ABP in East Anglia, the product will be transported to the port city of Bari in Italy. The field beans, which are used as a protein source in cattle, pig and poultry diets, will travel aboard the vessel MV Zealand Beatrix. James Maw, Glencore Agriculture UK Managing Director, said: “The ability to make a timely early shipment of such scale through ABP’s Port of Ipswich has proved to be especially important for eastern counties growers. “Completing a 12,000 tonne shipment brings essential economies of scale that can make UK beans attractive for global buyers that have a core demand for beans in their feed rations, compared to the cost of conventional 4,000 tonne carriers,” he added. “That has translated into better prices for East Anglian growers, and helping to assure a viable return from the crop for farmers.”

Panama Breaks Ground on New Cruise Terminal near Balboa
PANAMA CITY, Oct 18 (Reuters) – A group including China Harbour Engineering Company Ltd (CHEC) has started building a $165 million port in Panama for cruise ships, the first project announced between China and the Latin American nation since they re-established diplomatic ties this year. The consortium, which includes CHEC and Belgian company Jan de Nul, will build a terminal that representative Wang Bo said would make the Perico Island area near the entrance to the country’s transoceanic canal a tourist destination. In June, Panama established diplomatic ties with China, breaking with self-ruled Taiwan in a major victory for Beijing, the second most important customer of its key shipping canal. Wang added that CHEC, a subsidiary of state-run China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) has contracts across the Americas worth $7 billion. At an event on Wednesday, Panama’s President Juan Carlos Varela highlighted the participation of the Chinese company as an advantage of having re-established diplomatic ties, and said his next foreign trip would be to China. gcaptain.com/pana...

Port of Bergen to develop Environmental Port Index
A selection of some of the largest cruise ports in Norway, including the Port of Bergen, have agreed on a model for a future Environmental Port Index (EPI). The goal is to provide economic rewards for the ships with the lowest environmental footprints to encourage others to reduce their own. While many Norwegian ports use the Environmental Ships Index (ESI), the EPI will focus on emissions from ships while at berth. “The ports signed the agreement in June 2017, and after our second network meeting we have agreed on the way onwards,” said Even Husby, head of environment at Port of Bergen. “This autumn we will continue work with DNV-GL to develop the model further.” Ports currently participating in the project include the Port of Stavanger, Port of Oslo, Port of Aurland/Flåm, Port of Stranda/Geirangerfjord, Port of Ålesund, Port of Molde & Romsdal, Port of Trondheim, Port of Eidfjord, Cruise Destination Hardangerfjord, Port of Tromsø, Norwegian Ports Association, More at www.cruiseandferr...

Norwegian retrofits cruise ship Norwegian Jade with scrubber
Norwegian Cruise Line has retrofitted Norwegian Sun and Norwegian Jade with new exhaust gas cleaning systems (known as scrubbers) to help reduce sulphur and particulate emissions and environmental footprints. Installed as part of Norwegian’s Sail & Sustain environmental programme, the lightweight in-line hybrid scrubbers were developed by Yara Marine Technologies and can operate in open-loop, closed-loop, and closed-loop with bleed-off modes. The new system works by ‘scrubbing’ away the sulphur oxide and diesel particulate matter before the emissions leave the ship’s chimney stack, decreasing the amount of harmful emissions that are released into the air. Five scrubbers were installed in each ship – one per engine – and collectively, they are able to reduce sulphur emissions by up to 99% and diesel particulate emissions by 85%. It’s predicted that the technology will help Norwegian Jade and Norwegian Sun to reduce the equivalent of around 3,000 tons of sulphur oxide gas

Fincantieri lays keel for sixth Viking Ocean ship
Fincantieri has laid the first keel block for Viking Ocean Cruises’ sixth new ship at its yard in Ancona, Italy. To be delivered in 2019, the newbuild will be identical to her sister ships and offer accommodation for around 930 passengers. The yet-to-be-named vessel will also have modern safety systems, energy-efficient engines and technologies, and an exhaust gas cleaning system to ensure it meets environmental regulations. This is the sixth cruise ship Fincantieri has built for Viking. The company’s Marghera yard delivered Viking Star in March 2015, while the Ancona yard delivered Viking Sea, Viking Sky and Viking Sun in 2016 and 2017. The latter is also scheduled to hand over the fifth vessel, to be named Viking Orion, in 2018. The seventh and eighth vessels will be delivered in 2021 and 2022 respectively.

On Oct 19, 2017, an explosion with ensuing fire rocked the "Atlantic Symphony" which was berthed at the Koole Terminal in the industrial area Vondelingenplaat in Rotterdam with a cargo of coconut oil. A flame of 50 meters height and the smoke clouds were seen as far as from the Maas lock, Vlaardingen and Schiedam. One crew member was injured when he slipped off on another part of the deck. He was treated by ambulance staff before being taken to hospital. Fire engines, tugs and fire boats were deployed to the scene and brought the fire under control. Alongside the tanker also the Malta flagged tank m/v "Manas" was moored. The cause of the explosion was under investigation. The "Atlantic Symphony" had sailed in Port Klang on Sep 13 and arrived in Rotterdam on Oct 15. The tanker was moored in the Europoort Caland Kanaal on Oct 20.

Oil’s Biggest Rigs Get Sent to Junkyard as Daily Losses Mount
(Bloomberg) — Transocean Ltd. is finally sending Pathfinder to its grave, after two years in a Caribbean purgatory that cost about $15,000 a day. The move by the world’s biggest offshore-rig operator signals just how bleak the future looks for deepwater drilling. Pathfinder is the most famous of six floating rigs the company is scrapping in burials that will add up to a bruising $1.4 billion write-off. Competitors are going the same route, jettisoning more rigs in the third quarter than have ever been trashed in a 90-day stretch, according to Heikkinen Energy Advisors analyst David Smith. That’s how bad it is, with predictions crude prices won’t go much higher than $60 a barrel in the next year compared with around $50 recently. “Deepwater is going to be playing a much-reduced role on the global oil-supply stage relative to what the industry expected as recently as three years ago,” said Thomas Curran, an analyst at FBR Capital Markets in New York. gcaptain.com/oils...

Seized vessel owner sues Liberian Government
The owners of the "Dzintars" have sued the government of that country for what it deems to be the illegal seizure of the vessel that was transporting assorted frozen fish from Sierra Leone. The items being transported by the seized vessel are worth USD 94,270, and were intended for delivery to National Frozen Fish Company in Monrovia, consignee of Libellant (the firm filing the suit), Liberian Observer reported. Libellant, located in St. Kitts and Nevis, is also seeking a compensation of USD 957,348. In its lawsuit, the firm demands that the government of Liberia pay Libellant USD 457,348 representing special damages, of which USD 250,000 represents loss of revenue and earnings by the company as a direct and proximate result of its detention for ten days – which may increase every day the vessel is detained at the rate of USD 25,000 per day. The remaining amount, USD 207,348, would be for the value of the assorted frozen fish, including a 60 per cent markup covering taxes, handling and operational expenses. Libellant also demands USD 500,000 for general damages for the unlawful arrest and detention, the reputational damage, the hardship, and inconvenience sustained by the crew of the vessel, totaling USD 957,348. Libellant’s lawyer Benedict Sannoh, former Attorney General and Minister of Justice of Liberia, alleged that on August 28, the Liberia Coast Guard (of the Ministry of Defense) intercepted and entered the vessel on its way from Sierra Leone; and upon inspection, informed the captain that the vessel was under arrest. Libellant also claims that prior to the vessel’s departure from Sierra Leone, the consignee obtained an import permit and declaration from the Ministry of Commerce and Industry of the Government of Liberia authorizing the company to import the consignment from Sierra Leone to Liberia. Besides, the suit claimed that the frozen fish company made a declaration of the consignment to the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) of which LRD 1,921,095 (USD 16,191) was paid into the Liberian government’s coffers. The suit also alleged that instead of bringing Libellant to the Port of Monrovia, the Coast Guard escorted and held the vessel at bay on the sea in the basin outside of the pilot station at the Freeport of Monrovia.

Modern slavery bulker detained in Rotterdam
The trade union FNV Havens has detained the "Vita Kosmos" after its arrival in Rotterdam's Europoort on Oct 14, 2017. The Philippine crewgot paid only 180 Euros wages per month, a form of modern slavery. Together with inspectors of the International Trade Union ITF, the work on the "Vita Kosmos" was put to a halt on Oct 17. The inspectors were already on board on Oct 16 to try to check the salaries but were sent away by the shipping company. There was also the suspicion that the crew even paid the shipping company to work on board as a kind of loan, leaving them only a small part of their salary. However, the ITF could not fix this yet. The ship was being held at a terminal in Europoort until the company has made new arrangements with the union about salaries.

Ship suffered severe damage in grounding, Russian captain fined
Upon arrival of the "Ruyter", loaded with timber from Russia, at Warrenpoint on Oct 11 at 1.30 p.m. it was down by the bow by 0,75 meers and a list were visible. AFter docking, an inspection was carried out, during which extensive damage to the hull was found. The bow thruster compartment, the double bottom and forepeak tanks were flooded and part of the deck cargo had shifted. The port captain immediately demanded an underwater inspection which revealed extensive damage to the front third of the vessel. The Russian captain Aleksandr Iakovtsov was fined £1,000 at the Armagh Magistrates’ Court after pleading guilty faulty navigation. He declared himself guilty of not keeping a proper lookout, failing to navigate safely and cause serious damage to the ship. The judge Paul Copeland said: "It should have been apparent to you as an experienced mariner that you were on a collision course as you left Islay towards Northern Ireland. You chose to leave the bridge as the ship approached the coast of Ireland. It should have been apparent to you from the radar that you were getting close to the shore. The lights on Rathlin should also be apparent to you. You are fortunate the ship struck a shallow patch under the cliffs and that you were able to come off in a short time.. You did make an immediate report and engaged the support and rescue services. Fortunately, no one onboard was injured. It is understandable that you may not have been aware of the extent of the damage until after some time - fortunately there was no further incident. I’m satisfied it was not aggravated by alcohol and that there were no other ships put in danger by the progress of your ship. I am also taking into account you have been 31 years at sea with 16 years as captain and in this context you have been relieved of your command and this will affect your future work.” The captain was released after the hearing and returned to Russia. The cargo of timber bwas unloaded at Warrenpoint. However, the vessel was still being detained by the MCA until its surveyors have accepted plans from the owners about how they plan to carry out the necessary repairs and have it towed to a dock to carry them out. The ship had left the Russian port of Lemosov on Oct 3. It passed through the ports of Copenhagen and South Ronaldsay in Scotland before making the final leg of its journey to Northern Ireland. Just after 10.30 p.m. on Oct 10, the UK Coastguard received a radio message that the vessel had run aground on the north side of Rathlin. The Rathlin Coastguard Rescue Team and Portrush RNLI lifeboat were sent to monitor the incident as the "Ruyter" corrected itself back to a fit state to sail onwards. She called HM Coastguard in Belfast to report the incident, but reported no damage at that stage. With Storm Ophelia approaching Ireland, the freighter was allowed to dock at Warrenpoint, and an inspection conducted by the MCA resulted in it being detained.

 Agia Zoni II  (Tanker)
vor 3 Tagen von Timsen

Beach in southern Athens cleared of oil
The beach of Paläo Faliro was reopened by the Greek minister Panagiotis Kouroublis on Oct 17 after the cleaning works following the loss of 2200 tons heavy fuel from the "Agia Zoni II" was completed. Also the situation off Salamina has improved, but 140 workes were still busy cleaning the beaches and rocks in the regions of Selinia, Limniona, Kynosouras and Agios Nikolaos. There was a public claim that the real owner of the load that the ship was carrying was not Fos Petroleum – owned by Theodoros Kountouris – the company that operated the vessel. The Panhellenic Union of Merchant Seamen (PENEN) has gone on record with the claim that its representatives were informed during a meeting with top officials from the Shipping Ministry that the fuel being carried by Agia Zoni II, part of which was collected from the Hellenic Petroleum (ELPE) refineries, was not paid for by Kountouris even though the invoices were made out to his company. PENEN alleges that Shipping Minister Panayiotis Kouroublis knows that someone else is funding Kountouris’s company, heightening suspicion that fuel smuggling is involved.

Medevac off Carteret
On Oct 17, 2017, around 9.30 a.m., the maritime prefecture of the English Channel and the North Sea was alerted by the CROSS Jobourg after one of the crew members of the "Presqu'île 2" suffered a hand injury about 12 miles off Carteret. Immediately, the CROSS Jobourg, after consulting the Maritime Medical Advisory Center in Toulouse and the Maritime Medical Coordination SAMU in Le Havre, deployed a Cayman helicopter of the French Navy base at Maupertus. At approximately 10:30 a.m., the helicopter took off towards the fishing vessel. At 10:42 a.m., the patient was hoisted and transferred to the CHU of Caen where he was taken care of at 11:00 a.m. French report with photo: https://www.premar-manche...

14 crew members of distressed vessel rescued
The "Ming An", 3.500 dwt (IMO: 8787446), with 14 Indonesian crew members on board issued a distress signal on Oct 18, 017, at 01.38 a.m. The crew abandoned the sinking ship 36 miles west of Kaohsiung in the Taiwan Strait. The MRCC launched an SAR operation, and patrol boats of the Coastguard located life rafts in the sea, from which 13 castaways were picked up. One crew member initially was missing but was found alive and rescued by a fishing vessel. The ship seemed to have been disabled after an engine failure and capsized in adverse weather, having been turned broadside to battering waves.

16 stowaway rescued from container after 10 days
16 African stowaways were found inside a container aboard the "Panther" during unloading works by port workers at the APM Terminals in Algeciras on Oct 16, 2017. They probably saved the lives of the men from Ghana who had hidden inside the container for 10 days. The port workers heard voices from a Maersk container and alerted the ship's crew. The container was lifted free and the dehydrated men were found. The ship had sailed from Ghana on Oct 6. The police was called, but as the 16 men did not leave the ship, they were detained on board.
