Hanjin cargo ship turns away from Portland as port labor issues near crisis
Chronic labor issues at the Port of Portland's marine terminals appear to be reaching a crisis. Dockworkers walked off the job twice this week at Terminal 6, according to the terminal operator, another flash point in months of labor strife at Oregon's only international container shipping terminal. Slowdowns and shutdowns are accompanying contentious contract negotiations between terminal operator ICTSI Oregon and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union. Shippers fear that Hanjin Shipping may again be contemplating pulling out of Portland. That could have major consequences for big importers including Fred Meyer and Columbia Sportswear, while leaving exporters including farmers and timber companies paying substantially more to truck their containers to the Port of Seattle. www.oregonlive.co...

Japanese shipper fined $1.8M for illegal oil discharge, with whistle-blower taking $250K
A japanese ship operator was ordered to pay $1.8 million for illegally dumping oil residue and bilge water into the ocean last year, as part of a plea agreement Friday (Jan. 30) in federal court in Baltimore. A crew member on board the ship who acted as a whistle-blower will receive $250,000 of that, while $450,000 will go to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation for projects benefiting the Chesapeake Bay, according to the office of Rod J. Rosenstein, the U.S. attorney for Maryland. The sentence, handed down by U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake, came after Hachiuma Steamship Co., the operator of the M/V Selene Leader, pleaded guilty to violating the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships. More at www.baltimoresun....

AMSA Bans Ship from entering or using any port for 12 Months
For the first time, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has banned a vessel from entering or using any port in Australia for 12 months. Indonesian flagged container ship Red Rover (IMO9481673) has been issued with a direction not to enter or use any port in Australia for 12 months after being detained by AMSA three times since September 2014. The most recent detention was on 28 January 2015 in Fremantle, Western Australia. All three detentions identified failings in the vessel’s Safety Management System, including a lack of effective passage planning and failure to use appropriate charts and publications. This is the third vessel operated by PT Meratus Line (Company Number 0313623) which has been banned from accessing Australian ports for a period of time. All three of these vessels repeatedly demonstrated they were not operating or being managed to meet applicable standards despite repeated advice by AMSA to take action to improve performance. AMSA banned the MV Meratus Sangatta (IMO 9116797) earlier this month and the Territory Trader (IMO8812899) in November last year, from entering or using any port in Australia for three months.

Broken Beacon Leaves Bay Bridge Vulnerable In Dense Fog
It has been more than two years since an empty oil tanker collided with a tower of the Bay Bridge in heavy fog. Coast Guard investigators blamed the accident in part on a broken broken radar beacon on the bridge. That piece of safety equipment was found to be broken again during a monthly inspection. One of the bridge’s three beacons — which alerts sailors to the midpoint between bridge towers — has not been working properly since December 17. Caltrans is in charge of maintaining the beacons and has replaced the broken one twice, but the backups have failed. Deb Self, executive director of San Francisco Baykeeper, tells KPIX 5 that these broken beacons are a disaster waiting to happen and she used the 2007 Cosco Busan oil spill as a reference for what might occur if the beacons aren’t fixed properly. “We have a very sensitive environment here and once you get oil into it, it’s very hard to get it out,” she said.

SMIT and Nippon Contracted to Salvage Grounded MSC Ship
After running aground 8 days ago off the east coast of Okinawa, Japan, plans to salvage Military Sealift Command’s USNS Sgt. Matej Kocak (T-AK 3005) are under way today. In a phone call with MSC spokesperson Nathan Potter, he says the ship is currently being dewatered and that a tanker is on its way to defuel the vessel. MSC says the defueling will likely commence Monday and that two salvage companies, SMIT and Nippon Salvage, have been contracted for the eventual float-away of the ship. The ship is currently stable and once floated, will be brought to White Beach, Okinawa where divers will assess the damage and repairs will be made.

The Port of Rostock Warnemunde has announced that it is expecting approximately 181 cruise by 39 ships this coming season. The 2015 season begins on May 5 with a double port call by the Celebrity Silhouette and the Regal Princess. Both vessels are deployed in the Baltic for the first time. "In the course of the season we also look forward to first-time port calls by the Birka Stockholm, Costa Favolosa and Luminosa, Horizon, Louis Aura, Magellan, Sinfonia, Ocean Dream, Serenade of the Seas and Viking Star,“ said Jens A. Scharner, the new commercial manager for the port, having assumed his position Jan. 1, 2015. The Rostock-based AIDA Cruises will again operate two of its vessels from its Baltic home port: the AIDAdiva and AIDAmar, on 38 turnarounds. The AIDAmar will conclude the 2015 cruise season on Oct. 17. Costa, MSC, Princess and other cruise operators plan to embark and disembark some of their passengers from the German market in Rostock. The traffic is concentrated on nine days during the summer when 12 cruise ships will be calling. This year's cruise calendar includes three days with five ships in port on July 5 and 17, and Aug. 2; one day with four ships in on Aug. 30; and 12 days with tree ships at the same time. More than 100 of the calls will take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. In total, 111 days this year will see cruise ships calling at the port on river Warnow. More than half a million cruise travellers are expected, similar passenger numbers as last year.

California ports congestion 'worst-ever on record'
One shipping analyst calls the congestion at ports in Los Angeles and Long Beach the "worst-ever on record." For months, both shippers and longshoremen have accused each other of intentionally slowing operations to gain leverage in contract negotiations that began last May. Congestion was already building due to more ships, larger ships and a lack of maintained truck trailers to move cargo off the docks. However, gridlock intensified in November. The Pacific Maritime Assocation, which represents employers, claimed longshoremen began holding back crews after Halloween in order to pressure employers, while the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, representing dockworkers, claimed the opposite, saying that employers are asking for only half the normal work crews. www.cnbc.com/id/1...

Two New Post-Panamax cranes for Adelaide Container Terminal
South Australia's container terminal operator, Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal, has welcomed the arrival of two new Post-Panamax Liebherr cranes as part of the terminal's strategic plan. The ship-to-shore cranes, ordered in January 2014, are 65 metres high and capable of reaching heights of 105 metres with the boom raised. They represent a $24 million investment for Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal, and are due to be deployed for active service in April 2015 following a rigorous commissioning process. It is expected that vessel turn-around times at the facility will ultimately become up to 25% faster than at present due to the new cranes.

 Boudicca  (Passagierschiff)

Passengers flown home from Tenerife after fire
The 784 passengers of the "Boudicca" - 778 of them British - have had their trip cut short as Fred Olsen Cruise Lines made the difficult decision to cancel the voyage and fly the passengers back to Southampton and Bournemouth. The ship had left Southampton on Jan 20 for an 18-night cruise of Cape Verde and the Canary Islands. After the fire, the ship made its way to Tenerife in spite of two engines being damaged, leaving the ship running on two main engines and three auxiliary engines at a reduced speed of eight knots. It reached the port of Santa Cruz on Jan 28. After the arrival, engineers have been investigating the extent of the damage. Their expert assessment was that the "Boudicca" should stay longer in Tenerife, in order for the ship to undertake all the work required. All passengers have been offered a full refund for the cost of their ticket, plus 50% off their next booking as compensation. The next cruise was expected to depart as planned from Southampton on Feb 7.

Air in water cooling system sidelined ferry
The "Aratere" missed another return sailing between The Wellington and Picton on Jan 29, 2015. There was air discovered in the ship's water-cooling system. The ferry returned to Wellington overnight on reduced power. It sailed via Queen Charlotte Sound's northern channel, which is wider than Tory Channel and allows more room for ships sailing on reduced engine power to navigate in and out of Cook Strait. KiwiRail confirmed the 6.45 a.m. freight-only sailing to Picton and the 10.45 a.m. sailing to Wellington had been cancelled. The 2.45 p.m. Wellington to Picton sailing was expected to go ahead. Interislander's other ferries would help handle the load. The company is considering fitting two new propellers to the Aratere this year after a propeller fell off it on Nov 5, 2013.

Car carrier to be repaired in Southampton
While no final date for when the repair work at the "Hoegh Osaka" will be carried out was set, Hoegh Autoliners expected them to be completed in Southampton. There was no word if the ship would be drydocked. Inspections of the vessel showed that the majority of the work to bring the vessel back to seaworthiness related to the cleaning of compartments which have had water ingress and the repair of smaller structural damages due to movement of cargo and salvage operations. UK authorities who had inspected the vessel over the last few days confirmed that there are only minor damage. The operation to discharge the vessel, was proceeding as planned. All cargo, apart from some large units on the main deck, was held by their lashings. A limited number of vehicles on the car decks have been affected by water ingress. Once the vehicles have been landed, proper cargo surveys will take place by the cargo owners and their surveyors.

Frantic search for four missing fishermen in Dover Strait
In the afternoon of Jan 28, 2015, the Dover Coastguard was alerted to the "Morgenster" which had been fishing in the Dover Strait and was enroute to Oostend. The vessel was known to have four crew on board, two of Dutch nationality, the others from Portugal and Belgium, was reported missing. At 2:45 p.m. the last AIS signal was received 32 nautical miles west of Boulogne sur Mer and 15 nautical miles southeast of Hastings. Just before sending for the last time, the "Morgenster" drove a loop at low Speed and disappeared at the time where it resumed its original northbound course. A Coastguard Rescue helicopter started searching an area in the South East of the Channel, two all-weather lifeboats from Dungeness and Dover wre on scene, and a French Search and Rescue helicopter has also been supporting the search effort. The Coastguard has notified other vessels in the surrounding area to remain vigilant and contact them if they located anything. Several fishing boats joined in the search. From Boulogne a number of cutters were on the move to help. At 7.40 p.m. the Coastguard Center Den Helder was alerted. The search lasted deep into the night before having been suspended until daylight. At daybreak the search was resumed, including two ships with side scan sonar. 15 Dutch, Belgian and French fishing boats and two lifeboats returned to the search area as well as a helicopter. In France an aircraft prepared to provide support and was expected on scene at 11:00 a.m. At 11.30 a.m. the Dover Coastguard reported that just south of Boulogne-sur-Mer an empty life rafwith the serial number mathcing the missing ship, has been found in position 50-41.15N 001-33.93E, drifting off the beach of Equihen south of Boulogne-sur-Mer. At 4 p.m. one of the flying units thought to have seen nets.

Port workers strike over Larnaca delays
PORT workers protested against the continuous extensions the government is giving the Zenon consortium over the Larnaca port and marina project with a three-hour walkout yesterday morning. The consortium, consisting of the Paraskevaides Group, Iacovou Bros, Petrolina and Vouros, had signed an agreement with the government in 2012 for the development of the Larnaca port and marina worth a reported €700m. Under the deal, the consortium was supposed to secure funding for the project within six months from its signing but due to the economic meltdown local banks pulled out. Since late 2012, when the contract was concluded, the government has granted Zenon eight extensions, the last one expiring on February 15. cyprus-mail.com/2...

Carriers deploy extra ships to east coast ports in LA-LB gridlock
US West coast port gridlock has reached such a critical level that harbour congestion has resulted in delays of three weeks prompting carriers to divert ships to the east coast. The gridlock is expected to add substantial costs for carriers as shipping lines scramble to deploy additional vessels as extra tonnage is needed to maintain sailing schedules and to re-position equipment stuck in US ports, according to Alphaliner. Port congestion has induced carriers to inject 36 extra ships with a combined capacity of 233,000 TEU into the Far East-US west coast trade. The diversion of cargo to US east coast ports has boosted demand in the Far East-USEC trade, with spot rates soaring to record highs. As negotiations over a new labour contract are on going, problems in the USWC are expected to worsen in the coming weeks. Despite eight months of negotiations, the situation remains deadlocked and an intervention by US federal mediators, which began on January 5, has not yet produced positive results.

Dublin Port Company Opens New Alexandra Quay Container Terminal
Dublin Port Company today officially opened its newly completed Alexandra Quay Container Terminal following a €35m investment. The opening was welcomed by The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe, T.D. The opening marks the completion of the third and final phase of the development of the new facility. This third phase will enable the terminal to cater for an additional 80,000 TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units) per annum bringing the terminal’s total capacity to over 400,000 TEU per annum. The initial two phases of the project created new runways for three rows of rubber tyred gantry cranes (RTGs), a type of large mobile crane used for stacking shipping containers. The third and final phase added a fourth runway for RTGs and deepened and strengthened the quay wall to allow bigger container ships to be loaded and discharged with modern high speed ship-to-shore gantry cranes. The terminal’s operator, Burke Shipping Group, has invested in a new seventh RTG and will take delivery of a ship-to-shore gantry crane later in the year. Both of these new cranes are being supplied by Liebherr of Killarney. The finished terminal has an area of 10.7 hectares and the completed development comes at a time when Dublin Port’s full year trading figures show a 7% increase for 2014, equalling the record levels of 2007.

Works start on Gdańsk Port expansion
Construction works have almost begun at Gdańsk’s Northern Port, already the largest container terminal in Poland, which will more than double the port’s capacity. The site of construction has been handed over to N.V. Besix, a Belgian firm which has both planned the project and will now carry it out. It is expected to take six weeks until the site is ready for works to begin. Under the PLN 1.2 billion (EUR 290 million) project the port’s capacity will increase from 1.5 million TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) to 3 million TEU after the first phase of investment, with the possibility of further increasing capacity if needed. The expansion will see the construction of a second deepwater berth, 650 metres long, which will be able to accommodate ships with volumes of over 18,000 TEU. The new berth will have twenty cranes of varying sizes. The project is expected to be finished within 19 months, allowing for the first ships to use the new berth by the end of 2016.

In the evening of Jan 28, 2015, the "Ro-Ver", 2842 ts (EU-No.: 02333736), whilst coming from Tolkamer and transiting from the Waal- towards the Amsterdam-Rhine-Canal, was hit by the floodgate of the Prince Bernhard locks near Tiel, which struck the vessel like a guillotine. The ship was carrying a cargo of naphtha, a volatile and flammable substance, but the tanks were not damaged. The lock was temporarily inaccessible after the accident as the floodgate first had to be hoisted. Ships could pass the locks only through an adjacent lock chamber. The lock remained inaccessible until 9.30 a.m. on Jan 29 because the floodgate had to be lifted first. The slightly damaged ship was moored at the side of the lock.
