vor 5 Std von Timsen

Tanker seized due to waste dump
Port authorities have seized the "Sea Challenger" at Walvis Bay on Feb 4, 2016.

 Modern Express  (Frachtschiff)
vor 5 Std von Timsen

Modern Express on the move again
The anticipation of a heavy storm in the coming hours, with waves that could reach 10 meters raised concern the "Modern Express" could be at risk. The ship was transferred to a safer place from the pier where it had been moored. Five tugs of the company Ibaizabal participated in the Operation on Feb 5. The ship was moved to dock AZ2 in the same dock area which was regarded as more protected. It took more than two hours to cover only 800 meters between the two positions. The tricky maneuver started about 2.20 p.m. and ended around 4.45 p.m. with the ship being moored at its current location. During the weekend the work to stabilize the ship will continue. Technicians of Smit Salvage inspected it from inside and placed different sensors programmed to indicate the slightest movemen. The technicians warned that the unloading of the vessel could take quite a while because it would be necessary to use traditional methods to empty the cargo decks. Also the fuel from the tanks was not yet removed, but there was no risk of a major Spill. The fuel tanks were completely sealed off. One of the previous operations focused on lowering the level of water that had accumulated inside the ship. Smit Salvage made use of special pumps to perform this operation.

Eyemouth and Dunbar lifeboats assist disabled trawler
Two RNLI lifeboats were involved in a joint operation on Feb 3, 2016, in order to help the "L’Ogien", which had suffered engine failure and required assistance. The Kirkwall registered trawler was fishing to the east of Torness when it developed a problem with its engine which resulted in the trawler requiring a tow back to its base port of Eyemouth. Due to its location, Dunbar RNLI lifeboat were initially requested to launch at 12.45 p.m. and were quickly on scene to take the L’Ogien under tow back to Eyemouth, where they then had to wait for sufficient tide so that the trawler could safely enter harbour. Eyemouth RNLI lifeboat were then requested to launch around 5.50 p.m. and were quickly in position to take over the tow of the "L’Ogien" from Dunbar lifeboat, who in turn, secured a stern tow and acted a brake due to the size of the trawler, the narrow entrance to Eyemouth harbour and the slight swell at the harbour entrance. Once the tide had filled, Eyemouth lifeboat then towed the "L’Ogien" back in to the safety of the harbour, with both lifeboats working together to ensure that the trawler was secured alongside around 8 p.m. Report with photo: rnli.org/NewsCent...

Chellie Pingree, D-Maine, said in statements Thursday that they have on behalf of the city of Portland asked the Navy to consider whether it any of its surplus ships could be used for that route. “It supports commerce, brings new travelers to the area, and ultimately, helps create good-paying jobs for Maine people,” King said in a written statement. “I will do all that I can to help the city of Portland position itself to resume the service as soon as possible, including advocating on the city’s behalf to the U.S. Navy to explore vessels that could be put toward that use.” Pingree and King set up a conference call with the Navy for the parties interested in resuming the ferry service in December. Bay Ferries Ltd., which the province of Nova Scotia selected to take over the ferry line from Nova Star Cruises, said Thursday that it’s still looking for a ship but declined to identify its prospects, including the U.S. Navy, citing competitive concerns. https://bangordailynews.com/2016/02/04/news/portland/ferry-operator-eyes-navy-ship-for-portland-yarmouth-route/

Second salvage attempt failed
After a salvage attempt with the midday flood failed, at 1.45 p.m. the Central Casualty Command in Cuxhaven took over the command in the case of the "CSCL Indian Ocean" at the request of the Water and Shipping Authority Hamburg. The command was in contact with the owners and was developing a salvage plan. The oil monitoring airaft Do228 of the command has carried out a surveillance flight and could not detect any pollutant discharge. The sounding ship "Deepenschriewer 1" was called to record the exact position of the ship on the river bed. In addition, a suction dredger was requested in order to flush out the area around the container ship. The bunker tanker "Dresden II" (MMSI: 211471210) went alongside the boxship and started draining the 3000 tons fuel. During this time no salvage attempt would be undertaken so the next high tide around midnight will definitely be missed. Tugs remaining on site were the "SD Dolphin" and "SD Rover" in the evening.

Rescue role for former trawler
German shipyard Pella Sietas in Hamburg-Neuenfelde has taken on the former British trawler and fishery research ship ‘Clupea’, which is being overhauled and refitted by March for service as a refugee rescue ship in the Mediterranean. The 32.31m long and 7.9m wide Clupea is being revamped for the private German humanitarian group Sea-Watch. During the overhaul at the Russian-owned shipyard, it will also be renamed Sea-Watch 2. The future captain of the ship, Ingo Werth, told Maritime Journal the overhaul was going as scheduled as of January. He noted that no technical modifications had been made up to then apart from the installation of a new 50kW generator - which the yard said was a modern Diesel auxiliary - and two new on-board boats, all funded by voluntary donations. Capt. Werth said the ship, built in 1968 in Aberdeen, still had its original Lister Blackstone 8 cylinder engine with a 4 cylinder compressor for start-up. Original ship specifications said the engine was of 660bhp and developed 11.75knots over a controllable pitch propeller. Werth also mentioned two Cummins generators of 167kW and a Lister air-cooled 3 cylinder generator for port operation. He also said the ship had a six ton HIAB 190 crane mounted on the after-deck. - See more at: www.maritimejourn...

Grounded windpark platform off Nymindegab has capsized
The "Sea Worker" has capsized off Nymindegab in the morning of Feb 3 so that it was now overturned. The area has been hit by strong winds since one week, which made it impossible to recover the installation platform. The risk of oil and other environmental hazards spilling from the platform was estimated as small. The Danish Navy has several ships in the area and also a German Observation aicraft was monitoring the site for possible oil spills but could only detect some debris currently. A trail of debris drifted ashore on a stretch about 7 km north from Nymindegab in the afternoon. The Holstebro Police was guarding the flotsam. The lifeboat "Emile Robin" with a team of the "Gunnar Seidenfaden" on board inspected the platform for oil leaks on Feb 3 but since returned to the port of Hvide Sande. The anti pollution vessel "Gunnar Seidenfaden" berthed in Hvide Sande on Feb 2. An OSV vessel of the salvage company Smit which has been tasked with the recovery, and the "Esvagt Connector" kept monitoring the situation. The "Sea Worker" has 178 cubic meters of light fuel oil on board forrunning the generators. Last week the platform could briefly be boarded and the valves were closed. The capsizing of the installation vessel will not have much impact on A2SEA since there were no major tasks in the near future which could not be taken over by other ships, and thus there was no interruption to current works. The vessel was en route from Frederikshavn to Esbjerg, where it was to be fitted out for a project in German Waters. A recovery requires a fairly large weather window with calm weather. First the vessel is to be dranied of the limited amounts of fuel and has to be checked for the development of a salvage plan.

Delicate task on final leg - ship now safe in port
After 48 hours of towing from the Landes coast, the "Modern Express" arrived off Bilbao in the morning of Feb 3. But getting the ship to the port will be even long and complex, however, the odyssey was expected to end in the coming hours. Initially, the plan was to take the ship to the harbor around 9:30 a.m. but the operations have taken longer. The convoy will actually not arrive before the afternoon. The list has significantly worsened: the ship is now over 50 degrees. Eight men were hoisted by helicopter onto the freighter to attach additional towing ropes. On scene were the tugs "Alice One", "Centaurus", "Ibaizabal Once", "Maria De Maeztu" and "Sertosa Treinta" which pulled the casualty with 2,5 knots to port where it arrived in the afternoon around 6 p.m. Once the ship is safe, investigators will inspect the hull of the ship and see the damage caused by the cargo shift.

Tug caused oil spill
Crews were working to clean up an oil spill caused by the "Cindy L. Erickson" on the Illinois River near Spring Valley on Feb 1, 2016 around 7:30 p.m. The Bureau County Emergency Management Agency was notified of a waste oil spill just south of the Route 89 Bridge. Because of dense fog and limited visibility at the time, the agency called for help from the Peru Rescue Station, which responded to the Spring Valley Boat Club and launched boats to survey the scene. It was then determined that the tug had released approximately 25 gallons of waste oil. The vessel crew had already deployed spill control kits and contained the product. The tug was secured to pilings at the time. The owner of the tug, the Marquette Transportation, responded to the scene and notified a private spill cleanup team, which deployed hard booms with help from Peru Rescue Station boats. It was determined that the scene was secure and no product had been released downstream. Cleanup efforts continued in the morning of Feb 2 and representatives remained on scene to supervise the response.

Survey of ferry wreck completed
An underwater survey of the "Suilven" was completed by the Australian Ardent company and the local counterpart South Sea Towage Limited. The assessment team came to Fiji on Jan 24, completed the inspection and went back on Jan 29. The comprehensive assessment included an underwater inspection and underwater video, a check for shifting of the wreck, any trace of oil and any damage to the structure. According to the Fiji Ports Corporation Limited (FPCL) chief executive officer Vajira Piyasena the estimated cost of the operation was about USD $38k (FJD $82,000). The cost of salvaging the ferry would be determined after the assessment. The final report on the assessment would be an internal one that would be discussed with the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Public Enterprises, the Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) and the ferry owners. Ardent Australia was awarded the tender to conduct the comprehensive assessment of what it will take to salvage the ferry.

New ferry knocked out again
The "Veteran" was out of commission again and tied up with a mechanical problem on Feb 2. A plane connected Gander and Fogo Island with a helicopter servicing Change Islands. The vessel is still under warranty, which eases the blow for the Minister of Transportation and Works and are running about $10,000 a day. The mechanical issues with the starboard propulsion was now assessed. Since Feb 3 the "Captain Earl W. Winsor" was temporarily replacing the ferry which remained in St. John's for repairs. While the department was not sure know how long it will take to complete repairs on the "Veteran", government hopes to get the ferry back in service as soon as possible. This was the fourth time there have been issues with the vessel. It first ran into trouble on its maiden voyage from the Damen Shipyard in Romania, after its engine failed. In late December, she was knocked out of commission for a day because of an issue with its thruster. Two weeks ago a fire knocked the vessel out. Travellers should check with the department's website for updates on the status of the vessel and flight information.

Ministry in Gabon shocked about illegal log export
On Feb 2 the "Modern Express" arrived off Cape Matxitxako. The maneuvers to find shelter in Bilbao were expected to start in the morning of Feb 3. The ship was held by the "Alice One", "Centaurus", "Ibaizabal Once" and "Maria De Maeztu" 20 nm north of Bilbao against the wind and the sea, which was seemingly calming down. Meanwhile Regis Immongault, the Gabon Minister of Economy, expressed his shock in finding out, that logs were said to be carried on board of the ship and not 4089 tons sawn timber as stated in the cargo certificates. As the log export is prohibited, the Ministry of Economy launched an investigation. Sawn timber was shown in all the documents in their possession like manifests, bills of lading and customs declarations. This meant that there was an illegal logging. The Interior Minister contacted Interpol to track the landing and find out the type of wood and its origin," he continued before warn that inflict severe sanctions on any guilty of illegal trafficking of wood. The company that chartered the Modern Express is the European Roro Lines in Molenbeek. The logs were loaded at Owendo port in Gabon where the ship was from Jan 11-15. The company that commissioned the ship in Owendo confirmed having only loaded timber and construction equipment which was to be carried back to Europe after having carried out road construction. The Gabon Ministry of Economy send a request note to Spanish authorities to provide detailed information about the cargo on board as well as all the documents traveling with the ship. In case of evidence that cargo on board is logs, but not sawn timber, a legal case will be opened against the exporter and shipper. French report with video: www.bfmtv.com/soc...

Passenger died in St. Kitts during a SNUBA excursion
A passenger from the "Carnival Glory" died in St. Kitts during a SNUBA excursion booked on the ship on Jan 31, 2016. It allegedly took an ambulance 20 minutes to arrive. The vehicle allegedly had no medical equipment or defibrillator. Nurses and a firefighter vacationing on the Friar's Bay beach reportedly performed CPR on the passenger for 15 minutes without success. There was allegedly no doctor available who could even pronounce the passenger dead so they could take his body away instead of being left in the sun for hours. Cruise lines need to require every tour operator to have defibrillators and proper first aid equipment with them, particularly in countries where they take their passengers that have ambulances without defibrillators or basic emergency equipment.

 Emerald Belle  (Passagierschiff)

Cause of fire still under investigation
A forensic team and fire experts were still working to find out the cause of the fire on the "Emerald Belle" at the Den Breejen Shipyard in Hardinxveld-Giessendam though it was thought to be a technical issue. A year's work has gone on the ship which was as good as finished. The fire has an enormous impact on the entire company. The financial damage and whether parts of the ship can still be used was still unclear. The "Emerald Belle" admittedly had fire extinguishers on board, but the fire extinguishing system was not yet installed. Customers who already had booked for a cruis aboard next spring have been offered a place on another ship of the cruise line, or on a ship of its sister company Scenic. The river cruise ship "Scenic" of the sister company, which was moored alongside the burning vessel, has only suffered paint damage as it could be pulled to safety in time.

Tanker struck wharf
The US Coast Guard was responding to the allision of the unloaded "Nordbay" with the Jefferson Parish water intake at mile marker 104 on the Mississippi River at mile marker 104.3 near New Orleans on Feb 2, 2016. The tanker crashed first into the Jefferson water intake at mile marker 104, near the Orleans-Jefferson parish line, was then directed to an anchorage facility, but while in transit it also struck the Gov. Nicholls Street Wharf just downriver from the French Quarter. The ship blasted its horn repeatedly as it drifted toward the Piety Street Wharf, while at least three tugboats rushed across the river to its aid. The Piety Wharf was struck last month by a towboat and barge, and has been closed to park visitors ever since, awaiting repairs. An initial inspection by the Harbor Police did not find visible damage on the wharf, but that a more complete inspection would occur in the morning. The "Nordbay" was finally corralled and anchored at mile marker 97.2, upriver from the Crescent City Connection, according to the Coast Guard. She sustained minor damage, and a small hole in the hull, which discharged ballast water. Reports with photos and video: www.nola.com/traf... www.wwltv.com/sto...

MAERSK VOYAGER newest Maersk Drilling’s ultradeepwater sixth-generation drillship
MAERSK VOYAGER is the last of Maersk Drilling’s present series of four ultradeepwater sixth-generation drillships and is now drilling for Eni on the Offshore Cape Three Points block offshore Ghana. (Source: Maersk Drilling) The drillship has been and remains a versatile vessel design that has proved itself an integral part of the E&P industry’s adventure into deeper waters since Global Marine’s converted CUSS 1 first entered the scene in the late 1950s. Since then, the technologies and sheer scale of these vessels have evolved dramatically to the point where one of the latest sixth-generation ultradeepwater units, to have entered the market—Maersk Drilling’s MAERSK VOYAGER —is a very different creature to its distant forebear. Although still recognizable as two of a kind, Maersk’s Samsung 96K design vessel is a much more potent beast, and its dimensions and capabilities illustrate the concept’s development over the course of almost six decades. The CUSS I—a surplus navy barge named after the Continental, Union, Shell and Superior oil consortium that originally developed it with Glomar in 1956 as a technological test bed for nascent oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico—came in at a length of 79 m (260 ft), with a width of 14 m (48 ft) and the initial ability to drill in up to 122 m (400 ft) of water. It was a truly remarkable vessel for its time, which would, of course, go on to drill the famous Project Mohole in the 1960s. As in all areas of the offshore business, however, more than 50 years of evolution means technologies have advanced the boundaries far beyond what was originally thought possible. The MAERSK VOYAGER r, delivered to Maersk Drilling early in 2015, is nearly three times as long at 228 m (748 ft) and also nearly three times as wide at 42 m (138 ft). Able to drill in up to 3,600 m (12,000 ft) of water, it can drill wells to a total depth of 12,000 m (40,000 ft).

Chinpo Shipping fined US$125,698 in Singapore over arms shipment
SINGAPORE-based Chinpo Shipping Company (Private) Ltd has been fined S$180,000 (US$125,698) by the Singapore District Court for violating United Nations sanctions by helping to arrange a shipment to North Korea of Cuban missile parts and two MiG-21 jet fighters hidden under thousands of tons of sugar. The shipment was seized in Panama in 2013. The court had found Chinpo guilty in December of transferring financial assets or resources that could have been used to contribute to North Korea's nuclear and missile weapon programmes. It also found Chinpo guilty of carrying out a remittance business without a license between 2009 and 2013, reported Reuters. A March 2014 UN report said Chinpo Shipping acted as the agent for a Pyongyang-based company that operated the vessel, and North Korean diplomatic personnel in Cuba arranged the shipping of the concealed cargo.
