Second mobile harbour crane upgrades South Port NZ Ltd (South Port), located at Bluff
A second German-made Liebherr LHM 550 mobile harbour crane is in operation at New Zealand's most southerly box port, joining another that's been in service since 2010, reports the Otago Daily Times, serving the Dunedin area on New Zealand's South Island. South Port NZ Ltd (South Port), located at Bluff, will be used for container handling for Mediterranean Shipping Co, the harbour's biggest customer. "Six or seven years ago we were handling 8,000-10,000 TEU annually. Last financial year that was up to 32,000 TEU and we are expecting that to increase again in the next 12 months," said South Port cargo chief Geoff Finnerty

Trade union wins in Aqaba dispute
The ITF (International Transport Workers’ Federation) is pleased to announce that port workers at the Aqaba Container Terminals (ACT) facility in Jordan run by APM Terminals have gained a victory following international protests against a police roundup of union members. Workers represented by the ITF-affiliated General Union of Port Workers went on strike last week over contract changes and ACT management’s failure to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement due since July. Almost as soon as the strike began police raided the site and arrested 150, including the union’s leaders. Despite this and the attempted pre-prepared use of strikebreakers, the union – buoyed by support from the ITF and its affiliated unions in the region and globally – maintained its strike. It has now won its case, including the company’s waiving all penalties imposed during the strike, in particular rescinding 23 sackings; and a renewed commitment from the Jordanian government to have its grievances addressed by the national labour court

Chevron and Edison Chouest Face Lawsuit Over Kidnapping of Supply Boat Captain
Nearly a year to the day after Edison Chouest’s supply vessel C-Retriever was hijacked and its captain and chief engineer kidnapped off Nigeria, a lawsuit has been filed in Houston against the two companies for gross negligence and failure to “take appropriate remedial measures to protect its employees,” namely Captain Wren Thomas. In October 2013, Captain Thomas spent 18 days in a jungle hideout under the watchful eye of drugged-out armed pirates who, to put it lightly, threatened him with severe bodily harm or death on an hourly basis. The injuries he came home with have made it impossible to continue his career as a merchant mariner and caused unspeakable mental anguish. Thomas’ lawsuit highlights a series of anonymous death threats that he received and specific kidnapping threats that were made to Edison Chouest in advance of his eventual kidnapping. He alleges that following these threats not enough was done to protect him and his crew from attack and that he and his colleagues on other Edison Chouest (ECO) supply boats were simply told to “stay very vigilant at all times and review . . . Security plans.” 17 specific items are listed in the lawsuit that support Captain Thomas’ claim, but perhaps the most shocking issue is that to date, the owner of ECO, Gary Chouest, has never called Captain Thomas regarding the incident or phoned his wife or his family during his captivity. Additionally, the suit notes that Gary Chouest and managers have refused any and all phone calls from Thomas’s two sons that reside in Louisiana. gcaptain.com/chev...

Coast Guard Medevacs Crewmember from F/V Icy Mist
A crewmember aboard the Icy Mist, a 58-foot fishing vessel, suffered injuries while loading crab pots 150 miles to the south of Sand Point on Sunday evening (Oct. 19). The Coast Guard was notified of the incident and the man’s injuries and it was deemed a medvac was necessary. After the duty flight surgeon recommended the medevac, a Jayhawk was dispatched to the area. The helicopter dispatched from the Coast Guard’s FOL in Cold Bay. When the helicopter arrived on the scene, the injured fisherman was hoisted aboard and transported to Cold Bay. At the clinic there, the fisherman was reported as stable and coherent. “This case was the first for our FOL Cold Bay aircrews this season and demonstrates the importance of our seasonal deployments,” said Lt. j.g. Joey Schlosser, command duty officer, Coast Guard 17th District. “Forward operating locations enables us to reduce emergency response times and allows us to transport mariners in distress to medical care as quickly as possible.” The f/v Icy Mist is no stranger to mishap. It was on February 25, 2009 that the vessel was grounded on the northwest shore of Akutan. The Coast Guard responded to the scene at that time as well, and transported the crew, who had abandoned ship during a storm with reported winds in excess of 120 mph. The crew was transported by helicopter to Dutch Harbor during that incident.

Global recognition for rescue crew
The maritime industry has recognised the oldest obligation of the sea with an award for rescue at sea. The Lloyds List Global Awards, presented in London on 30 September, bestowed the Amver Assisted Rescue at Sea Award on the crew of the specialised reefer ship Crown Sapphire for their successful rescue of two sailors from a yacht in the Atlantic Ocean in March 2014. The rescue was accomplished in treacherous weather conditions. Captain Wig, the Crown Sapphire’s commander with almost 25 years’ experience as a captain, gave the order to alter course towards the distressed sailing vessel's position to provide assistance / rescue. Despite the adverse weather conditions, Captain Wig skilfully manoeuvred the Crown Sapphire to a safe position near the sailing yacht to initiate the rescue operations. The crew of the Crown Sapphire had already prepared the rescue gear and were able to safely rescue the sailors. All rescue efforts are important, no matter how small, but to be singled out for their efforts is a compliment to the dedication and professionalism of crew members. Chief Officer Gennady Dubinin was a special guest at Wallem Group’s table at the Awards, and was on stage, along with Wallem Group CEO Simon Doughty, to receive the Award on behalf of the Crown Sapphire crew. Crown Sapphire is a specialised reefer ship operated by NYKCool AB, owned by NYK Reefers Ltd., and managed by Wallem Ship Management.

Canada to US ferry start-up Nova Star Cruises could soon face a challenge on the route.
The Press Herald reported that businessmen connected to a previous service between Yarmouth and Portland are forming a company called Canamerica Cruises. They propose to run a smaller, cheaper vessel on the route and are calling for state subsidies like the ones granted to Nova Star. Canamerica is being put together by Bruce McNeil, a manager involved with the previous service that ran from 1982 to 2004. Martin Salzedo, former CEO and president of Celebration Cruise Line, has been lined up as CEO. A vessel with capacity of between 650 and 700 people would be more suited to the run, McNeil said, rather than the 1,120 people the 27,500-gt Nova Star (built 2014) can carry. It started the run in May. Earlier this month Canada agreed to hand over another CAD 5m ($4.4m) to keep the service up and running. It has already received the CAD 21m of state funding earmarked for the first seven years of the run, CBC reported. Passenger numbers were lower than expected for much of the summer, but the company met its target for August when more than 20,000 people used the service.

Massport "may privatize" port to pay for Boston dredging
According to My Fox Boston, Massport may privatize a busy shipping port in order to pay for a massive dredging project in Boston Harbour. According to the Boston Herald, the agency needs another US$200 million dollars to pay for the project. It has already received more than US$300 million in state and federal funding. One proposal is to privatize a container-ship port in South Boston. Other options include finding additional tax payer dollars or selling off Massport real estate to private developers. The dredging project is needed to allow larger container ships to dock in Boston.

Stena Line expands Nynäshamn-Ventspils sailing schedule with 'Urd'
Stena Line's route between Nynäshamn and Ventspils has had a very positive development since it was taken over from Scandlines a couple of years ago, and the demand continues to increase. This year alone, freight volumes have increased by 23 percent and the number of passengers and cars with about as much. Now the sailing schedule is expanded with the help of M/S Ask and M/S Urd operating Travemünde-Liepaja, the company said in its media release. Today Scottish Viking and Stena Flavia are operating Nynäshamn-Ventspils. With M/S Ask and M/S Urd timetable will be extended from 6 to 8 sailings a week, and apart from Ventspils also Liepaja will be operated once a week. Tony Michaelsen, Route Director for Region Baltics commented: "Of course it is very pleasing that the route has had such good development. Now we are focusing on and can increase traffic with additional sailings at attractive departure times, with the help of our two ships normally operating Germany-Latvia. It will be a natural complement where we can adjust our operations to market demand." "This is a strategically important route for us that we think will continue to grow. Our goal is that the route eventually will be served by two identical sister ships with fully developed facilities for both freight and passengers. It has proven to be our success strategy on other routes," added Tony Michaelsen. The change will take effect as of October 19. Stena Line, an ABTA member, is an international transport and travel service company and one of the world's leading ferry operators. Stena Line operates in three business areas: Scandinavia, the North Sea and the Irish Sea with a network of 23 strategically located ferry routes in Europe. Stena Line has a modern fleet of 39 vessels including fast ferries (Stena HSS), traditional combi–ferries, RoPax ferries for freight and passengers, and pure cargo ships. During 2011, approximately 14.7 million passengers travelled with Stena Line. 3.1 million cars and 1.6 million freight units were transported during the same period.

Fire destroys sugar warehouse at Brazil's Santos Port
Oct 20 (Reuters) - A blaze destroyed a sugar warehouse operated by Cargill Inc and Biosev at Brazil's Santos port, the largest in Latin America, early on Monday, the third major fire at a sugar export terminal there over the last year.

Subic expected to benefit from severe congestion at Manila's port
Container throughput at the Port of Subic in the Philippines is forecast to surge by 84 per cent this year to 70,000 TEU from only 38,000 TEU in 2013, according to the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA), mainly due to the extreme congestion seen at terminals in the capital Manila. Shipping lines are as a result looking at linking Subic Bay with big ports in the region. SBMA chairman Roberto Garcia said Japan's NYK was "seriously thinking of establishing a Subic-Singapore route," while another carrier was looking at a new service that would link Subic with Shanghai, reported SeaShip News Singapore.

The roro terminal will have direct links between Dafeng and Korea, said Tao Ying, general manager of Dafeng Haigang Port. The port will also develop inland routes for roro vessels in the future. Since the port was established in October 2005, Dafeng has built 16 berths. The port handled 60,000 teu container throughput in the first three quarters of this year, an increase of 82.2% year-on-year. [20/10/14]

China gets controlling stake at Hambantota port
News that Sri Lanka had granted Chinese state-owned companies operating rights to four berths at the Hambantota Port once they are completed next year has caught the shipping industry unawares. There had been no tenders or prior announcements. But Sri Lanka Ports Authority Chairman Priyath B Wickrama says the Government had agreed to such an arrangement with the Hambantota Port’s Chinese lenders as far back as 2010. “We had an understanding with them when we took the loan,” he said in an interview with the Sunday Times. The loan agreement was signed with the Treasury. He also revealed that, in exchange for these operating rights, the Chinese have consented to ease loan conditions. “That loan was a huge loan,” he said. “The Chinese Government (has) agreed to relax the loan conditions as well. So the terms of our Phase I loan and Phase II loan are being rearranged. Those negotiations are now ongoing with the Treasury.”

Casualty off Kiis Gwaii
The operation at the "Sinushir" has transitioned from a Search and Rescue (SAR) operation to a commercial towing operation being conducted by Foss Maritime. The commercial towing operation was being monitored closely by the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Victoria and the Canadian Coast Guard. The 10 crew members remained on board. Around 5:30 p.m. on Oct 18, the tug "Barbara Foss" reached the vessel, successfully took it under tow and began heading in a northwesterly direction, keeping a safe distance from the west coastline of Haida Gwaii. The RCAF Cormorant helicopter, RCAF Buffalo aircraft and US Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter that were on standby at Sandspit airport have returned to their regular duties. The convoy was north of Kiis Gwaii (Langara Island) on Oct 19, travelling east at seven knots, destined for Prince Rupert. The vessels had reached the northwest end of Haida Gwaii and have begun an eastern transit into the Dixon Entrance. They were approximately 86 NM back from Prince Rupert and were expected to be in the vicinity of Prince Rupert early the next morning. They were accompanied by the "Sir Wilfred Laurier", the "Gordon Reid" has been stood down. The "Gordon Reid" had also attempted to tow the freighter away from the Haida Gwaii coast; but all attached lines eventually snapped in the heavy seas. A Canadian Armed Forces helicopter from the 442 Sqn. Comox earlier had airlifted the vessel's injured master. Photos and videos: https://www.youtube.com/w... https://www.facebook.com/...

Speculations over behaviour of tanker, swedish navy hunts Russian submarine
SWEDEN has mobilised aircraft and warships to hunt a Russian submarine believed to have sent a secret distress call late last week. Suspicions were raised when a commercial tanker operated by Russia was noticed circling in a narrow area of Swedish waters. Defence offials then mobilised the Swedish military, sending patrol ships and helicopters to search for what they called “foreign underwater activity”. Swedish news website SvD Nyheter now claims the search is aimed at locating a possible Russian submarine believed to have sent a distress call on a Russian emergency frequency. The newspaper website cites “credible sources” saying the tranmission was made in plain language, followed by a second encrypted transmission on Friday. The transmissions were traced to Swedish waters. While Sweden’s government has not revealed the nature of the incident, speculation surrounds the behaviour of the oil tanker NS Concord, a Liberian-registered vehicle that has apparently been circling in Swedish waters for the past week

Royal Caribbean's Bermuda ship to divert to Atlantic Canada due to Hurricane Gonzalo
As dangerous Hurricane Gonzalo bore down on Bermuda late Friday, Royal Caribbean International set a new northbound itinerary for Explorer of the Seas' Saturday sailing from Bayonne, N.J.'s Cape Liberty. Explorer of the Seas will call at Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Monday Oct. 20 and St. John, New Brunswick, on Tuesday Oct. 21.

Carnival Magic disembarks in Galveston, blood test clears Ebola lab worker
Carnival Cruise Lines reported a 'smooth debark' for Carnival Magic Sunday morning at its Galveston homeport. US public health officials boarded the ship shortly after its 4:30 a.m. arrival to conduct a final screening of the lab worker who may have processed Ebola samples in early October; additionally, a blood test confirmed she was not infected. The woman and her companion disembarked shortly after Carnival Magic was cleared at 7 a.m. and drove themselves home. 'There is no evidence of a public health threat to cruise passengers or to Galveston County. The passenger and her travel partner have been allowed to disembark without restrictions,' the Galveston County Health Authority said in a statement. Public health authorities have required no special cleaning for the ship. However, Carnival said that to provide 'extra assurance for our guests, we are undertaking a very comprehensive and aggressive cleaning and sanitizing initiative prior to guests boarding for the next voyage.' Embarkation was anticipated to start at 1 p.m. with departure expected on schedule. The passenger, a supervisor in the laboratory at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital where she 'may have processed' fluid samples from Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan, showed no signs of fever or illness 19 days later, according to a US Department of State spokeswoman on Friday. Sunday marked 21 days. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, symptoms may appear up to 21 days after exposure to Ebola, but the average is eight to 10 days. 'The woman had been self-monitoring, including daily temperature checks, since Oct. 6, and has not had a fever or demonstrated any symptoms of illness, the State Department said Friday, and Carnival reiterated Sunday. She also had been examined by Carnival Magic's shipboard doctor and reported healthy. The woman and her companion had voluntarily quarantined themselves in their cabin after the CDC updated its requirements for active monitoring last week. At the time they left for the cruise, the CDC had required only self-monitoring. Carnival noted 'the individual was always considered very low-risk.' On Friday, Mexican authorities failed to grant clearance for the ship at Cozumel. The day before, Carnival Magic visited Belize City, but the quarantined couple did not go ashore. Carnival said it, like other cruise lines, requires medical screening questionnaires of all passengers prior to embarking. This covers travel history, contact with individuals who have traveled from the West African areas of concern and, added this week, a question about any contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Ebola. 'Yes' answers to any of these questions requires a secondary screening which may result in denied boarding. Source: www.seatrade-insi...

Transworld and NAWAH co-operate at Iraq's Port of Basra
Dubai: Dubai-based companies Transworld Group and NAWAH have entered into a formal agreement to jointly handle import cargo at the Port of Basra, Iraq. NAWAH Port Management (NPM), NAWAH’s port operations business unit, operates the first modernised containerized terminal in the Port of Basra, located on the Shatt Al Arab waterway. The two companies have already initiated joint cargo movement from Jebel Ali Port to NPM’s Port of Basra terminal with containers from Transworld Group’s Balaji Shipping Lines transiting via NPM’s feeder vessel service into southern Iraq. Containerised and refrigerated cargo volume is forecasted to grow substantially in the next six months. “Together with Transworld Group’s four decades of shipping experience and NAWAH’s in-depth knowledge and operational capabilities within Iraq, we are confident that we will redefine logistics in the Middle East,” said Nicholas Kunesh, NAWAH Port Management’s president and CEO. “Through our combined expertise, market reach, state-of-the-art technology and customer-focused shipping and logistics services, we will enable Basra to continue its accelerated march to becoming a key strategic trading centre in the Middle East, bridging East and West.” The container terminal is able to offer customers end-to-end supply-chain capabilities throughout the Iraqi hinterland through NPM’s sister company NAWAH Supply & Distribution.

Carnival Cruise Lines statement on Ebola case on Carnival Magic
Carnival Cruise Lines has issued the following statement: “Late afternoon on Wednesday, Oct. 15, we were made aware by the U.S. CDC of a guest sailing this week on board Carnival Magic who is a lab supervisor at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. At no point in time has the individual exhibited any symptoms or signs of infection and it has been 19 days since she was in the lab with the testing samples. She is deemed by CDC to be very low risk. At this time, the guest remains in isolation on board the ship and is not deemed to be a risk to any guests or crew. It is important to reiterate that the individual has no symptoms and has been isolated in an extreme abundance of caution. We are in close contact with the CDC and at this time it has been determined that the appropriate course of action is to simply keep the guest in isolation on board.” Carnival added: "None of Carnival Cruise Lines' ships visit the region where Ebola cases are originating nor do our ships call in any countries with Level 3 CDC Travel Heath Notices. Any passengers or crew who have visited or traveled through Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea within 21 days of a cruise departure date will be denied boarding. "Additionally, all guests sailing with us must answer a series of health screening questions during embarkation and, if deemed necessary, will be asked to submit to further medical screening prior to being allowed to board. " All cruise lines continue to monitor the situation closely, along with our colleagues in the rest of the travel industry. The cruise industry is in close, frequent contact with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) for updates and guidance." The Carnival Magic is based year-round in Galveston and operates seven-day cruises to the Caribbean. The ship departed Galveston on Sunday, Oct. 12 and will return on Sunday, Oct. 19.

Successful test for new floating LNG power plant
The world’s first LNG hybrid barge was christened “Hummel” today at Grasbrook Quay in HafenCity in Hamburg. The godmother of the floating LNG power plant for environmentally friendly energy supply of cruise ships was Dr. Monika Griefahn, chief sustainability officer at AIDA Cruises. The co-founder of Greenpeace Germany and former Minister of Environment of Lower Saxony has been involved in sustainability and environmental protection for more than 30 years. As part of the inaugural event, the plug connection between the LNG hybrid barge and AIDAsol was successfully tested. With the start of the new cruise season in the spring of 2015, it is planned to supply the AIDAsol for the first time with electricity produced from liquefied natural gas (LNG) while it is berthed in the port of Hamburg. All ships of the AIDA fleet which were put into service in 2007 or later are already prepared for the use of shore power. Since 2007 the company has voluntarily used only marine diesel with 0.1 percent sulfur content for the production of energy on board its fleet in the Port of Hamburg. This has been required by law for all seagoing vessels in European ports only since 2010.

India to Develop Iran's Chabahar Port
India will float a company to develop Iran's Chabahar Port, a government statement said on Saturday, as New Delhi aims to take advantage of a thaw in Tehran's relations with world powers, Reuters reports. The port of Chabahar in southeast Iran is central to India's efforts to circumvent Pakistan and open up a route to landlocked Afghanistan where it has developed close security ties and economic interests. Iran and six world powers are engaged in talks to agree on a deal easing sanctions against Tehran before a late-November deadline. The powers want Iran to scale back its uranium enrichment programme to ensure it cannot produce nuclear bombs. Iran says the programme is for peaceful purposes. India plans to sign an agreement with Iran for the development of the port and New Delhi intends to lease two berths at Chabahar for 10 years, the statement said. The planned Indian company will invest $85.21 million in one year to convert the berths into a container terminal and a multi-purpose cargo terminal, the statement said, adding India would consider the participation of Iranian firms if needed.

Cruise Ship Carrying Quarantined Health Worker Due in Texas on Sunday
A Carnival cruise ship carrying a health-care worker self-quarantined for possible Ebola exposure is on track to arrive back in Galveston, Texas early on Sunday morning. The Caribbean cruise had to forego part of its itinerary and was denied access to a port in Mexico after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discovered that a woman was on board who may have handled specimens from Thomas Eric Duncan, the first diagnosed case of Ebola in the U.S. The unidentified passenger is a lab supervisor at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. She hasn’t exhibited any symptoms of the virus and isn’t considered a risk to any other passengers or crew, Carnival said on Friday, when the company also said it had been 19 days since the woman was in the lab with testing samples, nearing the end of the 21-day maximum incubation period for Ebola. A spokeswoman for Carnival Cruise Lines said on Saturday that passengers have been updated on their situation and will disembark on Sunday as normal, without any special protocols in place. She didn’t elaborate or comment on the health worker’s situation. online.wsj.com/ar...

US tug Barbara Foss tows disabled Russian ship away from BC coastline
A large tug boat arrived Saturday night to hook onto a Russian cargo shift adrift off the British Columbia coast, calming fears that the ship might drift ashore and cause an environmental disaster. Lt. Paul Pendergast of the Canadian Forces' Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre said the Barbara Foss arrived shortly after 5 p.m. local time, and was securing a line to the Simushir. "When they get the vessel under tow, they'll first head in a northwesterly direction and get it further from the coastline and eventually into more sheltered waters to the north of Haida Gwaii,'' Pendergast said. "Then a decision will be made on where to take it.'' The ship was adrift again for several hours Saturday after a tow line tethering the vessel to a Canadian Coast Guard ship snapped. Lt. Greg Menzies of the rescue co-ordination centre said earlier that the crew members were in no danger. "Right now all 10 crew members are on board,'' he said. "There's been no request for evacuation.'' Two Canadian and one American coast guard ships were also on scene and three helicopters were on stand-by at the closest airport, he said. The Simushir lost power Thursday night in rough seas west of the Haida Gwaii archipelago, off **>B.C.<**'s northern coast. There were immediate concerns it could drift ashore, break apart and spill hundreds of tonnes of bunker and diesel fuelling the vessel, creating an environmental disaster. Before the line broke, the Simushir had been towed about 45 kilometres away from the western shore of Haida Gwaii. Crew members attempted to repair a broken oil heater that left the vessel without power. "They were not able to effect the repairs,'' Pendergast said. The ship, registered in Kholmsk, Russia and owned by Russian shipping firm SASCO, was en route from Washington state to Russia, laden with containers of solvents and mining equipment. The ship's captain was flown on Friday to Sandspit, on Haida Gwaii, for medical care. Officials said they could not release any information about his condition. Read more: www.vancouversun....

Man saved after ferry fall flees hospital
The 21-year-old Kosovan, who was being treated for hypothermia, plunged into the sea from the Cherbourg-bound Oscar Wilde ferry at around 6.20 p.m. on Sunday night, less than an hour after the vessel left port. A 'man overboard' call was made by the Oscar Wilde at 6.21 p.m. At the same time, another Irish Ferries vessel, the Isle of Inismore, was almost parallel with the large vesse, heading towards Rosslare. Both ships launched rescue craft and after a few minutes the man was spotted from the bridge of the Oscar Wilde and rescued. 'He was alive, but was in shock suffering from hypothermia,' said a spokesperson for Irish Ferries. He could not have survived for long in the ice cold water and was fortunate to be rescued so quickly. 'The rescue boat from the Isle of Innismore took him directly to Rosslare Europort where he was identified by immigration officers and taken to Wexford General Hospital.Gardai said that the man had gone missing from his hospital bed wearing a blue hospital gown and with an IV drip in his arm. Previously the man, aged 21, was refused entry to the state after presenting a false document when he arrived on the Oscar Wilde from Cherbourg and was put back on the same boat for the return leg to the French port.The Kosovan, who was not under guard at the hospital, has short brown hair and is of medium build.
