Ship barred from sailing due to unpaid wages and security violations
The authorities of the port of Amsterdam have barred the "Nikolay Kasatkin" with its crew being on strike from leaving the port, a senior trade union official said on Dec. 2, 2016, after an inspection discovered trade law and security violations on board. The ship’s owners owe the crew $90,000 in wage arrears. Inspectors also found out that the crew’s labor contracts contained numerous violations, their health certificates were invalid and safety rules on board the vessel were often neglected. The crew, which was currently on strike demanding wage arrears to be paid, was running out of food. The ship’s owner informed the trade union that “the crew’s demands are not justified,” because de-facto the company owed its workers only one month in wage arrears and had to withhold the payment “for objective reasons.” Transport investigators in Russia’s Far Eastern Sakhalin region has launched a probe into the case.

Omani government to raise Salalah port's box handling capacity by 50pc
OMAN's Tanfeedh, a national programme for enhancing economic diversification, has proposed that Salalah Port's container terminal be expanded through investments in new berths to raise the port's container handling capacity from five million TEU at present to 7.5 million TEU. Tanfeedh's initiative aims to "consolidate Salalah's position as one of the most important transshipment ports in the region," and not only boost the hub's container handling capacity, but also facilitate the flow of bulk commodities and liquids through the port, said Trade Asia in Bahrain, citing a report by the Oman Daily Observer. The proposal is part of a raft of initiatives presented by Tanfeedh to help leverage the sultanate's multimodal transportation infrastructure to fuel the growth of logistics-based economic activities in the country.The Logistics Strategy 2040 (SOLS) rolled out by the Omani government last year aims to position the sultanate as a logistics hub with the potential to attract additional investment of OMR4.2 billion (US$10.9 billion) by 2020, as well as enhance the contribution of logistics activities to the national gross domestic product.

Gate terminal celebrates opening new LNG facilities at Maasvlakte
Gate terminal, its shareholders Gasunie and Vopak and its partners Shell and the Port of Rotterdam proudly celebrated the expansion of the LNG terminal at the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam. With this expansion Gate terminal now has a third berth and new special infrastructure for the loading of small LNG vessels. These small LNG vessels will enable distribution to LNG terminals in other North Sea and Baltic ports where large LNG tankers are prohibited to deliver directly due to their draught. In conjunction with LNG bunker vessels, the new berth will in future also make it easier for ocean-going vessels to fill up with LNG in Rotterdam. As with other kinds of maritime fuel, LNG can be pumped on board large ocean-going vessels using bunker vessels. These can now be loaded at Gate terminal which receives LNG from large LNG tankers which arriving from several global origins. The use of LNG as a maritime fuel is being encouraged by the European Union, the Dutch government and the Port of Rotterdam because of its more environmentally-friendly properties. To celebrate the successful completion of the new facilities Gate terminal and the Port of Rotterdam hosted 400 guests from the marine industry, the LNG industry and several authorities for a networking event. The program included a mini-symposium in which several experts shared actual experiences and new developments regarding the use of LNG as marine fuel around three main topics: Experiences by ship-owners, Technical developments and Supply chain developments.

TTI terminal acquisition plan spells confusion in LA-Long Beach
The uncertainty for shippers resulting from the Hanjin Shipping bankruptcy is far from over. Hyundai Merchant Marine and Mediterranean Shipping Co.’s plan to to jointly acquire Hanjin Shipping’s interests in a Long Beach container terminal spells potential confusion for carriers, truckers, and beneficial cargo owners set to be caught in a web of business relationships. In Southern California, this web of business relationships surrounding the future of the Total Terminals International facility involves the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the Pier A terminal in Long Beach, the APM terminal in Los Angeles, SSA Marine and APMT. Shipping lines, truckers, and BCOs will naturally get caught up in the fray as vessel calls shift from one facility to another, upsetting established logistics arrangements and helping or hurting the ability of terminal operators to reach the financial commitments they made to the ports in their leases.

Pollution emission cap put on cruise ships in Sydney Harbour
Harbourfront suburbs will breathe easier after the Turnbull Government agreed to revive restrictions on the sulphur content of fuels used by cruise ships at dock in Sydney Harbour. Balmain residents living close to the White Bay cruise ship terminal have long been concerned about harmful emissions from the 90,000-plus-tonne vessels that berth in the harbour. The Baird Government had responded to the community campaign and enforced the use of low-sulphur fuel inside the harbour but a federal-state jurisdictional issue rendered the NSW law inoperative in June. While the state had insisted on sulphur content of no more than 0.1 per cent of the tank, federal laws mandate a minimum content of 3.5 per cent. On Thursday, federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Darren Chester said he had instructed the Australian Maritime Safety Authority to direct a 0.1 per cent upper limit for fuel-oil sulphur content under the Navigation Act. Some cruise-line companies have complained that low-sulphur fuel costs $250-a-tonne more than heavier fuels and would impact on business but Mr Chester said two major operators, Carnival Australia and Royal Caribbean, the two major users of White Bay, were already voluntarily complying.

The Maritime Union of New Zealand (MUNZ), the Rail and Maritime Transport Union (RMTU) and E Tū Union represent Centreport’s on port workforce in cargo handling, port security, and engineering. Since the earthquake, there have been substantial efforts to get shipping services resumed and cargo moving, says MUNZ Wellington Branch Assistant Secretary John Whiting. “The positive relationships that have been developed over many years by the unions and workforce and Centreport management have enabled all parties to respond to the situation in a co-operative and constructive way.” Port operations were resumed within 72 hours of the quake. Tankers, car carriers, bulk and log vessels, and cruise ships are alongside and working at berths confirmed for safe use. RMTU organizer Todd Valster says the combined Unions and Centreport are now working the first post-quake container ship, the MSC vessel “PENELOPE”. This significant milestone signals full engagement in the recovery effort by port workers, and also the support for what will be required in working towards full port restoration in the months ahead, he says.

Adani vows to transform Dharma port
Dharma port, on the northeast coast of India towards the Bangladesh border, is set to become one of the nation’s largest ports thanks to massive investment from Adani Group. “We anticipate Dhamra to have 35 berths having 315 million tonne capacity. This will make it the largest port in India having an industrial cluster,” chairman Gautam Adani told reporters yesterday. The tycoon said the port could become a gateway to the Asean region. LNG and LPG terminals will also feature in the buildup alongside many bulker berths and an industrial park. The group has been in charge of Dhamra port for the past two years. splash247.com/ada...

Another hybrid ferry for Scandlines named
Danish ferry operator Scandlines has named its newest hybrid ferry, the ‘M/V Copenhagen’. As part of the company’s ambitious environmental strategy, the new hybrid ferry will join the world’s largest fleet of hybrid ferries. The vessel will use a low emission and fuel saving diesel electric hybrid propulsion system powered by an ESS (Energy Storage System) from Canada’s Corvus Energy. The ‘M/V Copenhagen’ is the sixth Scandlines hybrid ferry to utilize a Corvus ESS. This new hybrid ferry will soon join its sister ship M/V Berlin, also powered by a Corvus ESS, in servicing the crossing between Rostock, Germany and Gedser, Denmark. The M/V Copenhagen is 169.5m long and 25.4m wide, providing double the capacity for vehicles (460 cars or 96 transport trucks), and the modern, spacious onboard facilities have enough space for 1,300 passengers. The main engines provide an output of 18,000kW, with a further 4,500kW available from the Corvus ESS. This results in a speed of 21 knots on the 1-hour 45 minutes long crossing. - See more at: www.maritimejourn...

NATO ends Indian Ocean counter piracy mission
NATO has formally ended its counter-piracy mission off Somalia after a fall in attacks and in order to move its resources to pay closer attention to Russia in the Black Sea and people smugglers in the Mediterranean. Ships and patrol aircraft have now left the area off the Horn of Africa, where they have patrolled since 2009. NATO has reported that its "Ocean Shield" operation, as well as European Union and other counter-piracy missions, have significantly reduced attacks, with no ships captured off Somalia since May 2012. More than 30 ships were attacked in the area at the peak in 2010-11. Gerry Northwood, Chief Operating Officer at MAST, the international maritime risk management organisation and former Royal Navy counter piracy commander commented: “This has been a long time coming. EUNAVFOR and NATO mostly share warships and aircraft from the same nations. Force flow (warship availability) has therefore been difficult, especially as defence and budget cuts have cut the number of available warships post 2008. - See more at: www.maritimejourn...

Bangladesh tops old ship scrapping
While four Asian countries accounted for approximately 95 per cent of known ship scrapping in last year across the world, Bangladesh tops the league, according to a latest report of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). The report showed that some 7,419 thousands of gross tons of old ships were demolished in Bangladesh in the last year, followed by 4,940 thousands of gross tons in India; 4,143 thousands of gross tons in Pakistan; and 3,970 thousands of gross tons in China. Some 23,037 thousands of gross tons of old ships were reportedly sold for demolition across the world last year, according to the Review of Maritime Transport 2016. UNCTAD released the annual review report last month. The report also showed that in 2015, the most tonnage demolished was of dry bulk carriers. It was 5,758 thousands of gross tons in Bangladesh; 3,559 in Pakistan; 3,136 in India; and 2,895 in China. Tonnage is generally a measure of the cargo-carrying capacity of a ship. “Among the other vessel types, Pakistan had the highest share of oil tankers, India of container ships and Bangladesh of offshore,” it said.

The "Tide 'N Knots" took on water 32 kilometres off the coast of Nova Scotia on Dec 1, 2016. The ship had problems with the engine and exhaust earlier in the day and had turned around towards shore when crew member Curtis Thibault noticed seawater filling the fish hold. The crew got their pump out and radioed for help. It was not clear why the boat was filling with water. A Hercules, along with a Cormorant helicopter and several Canadian Coast Guard vessels, were dispatched to the scene to help after the call came into the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre around 8:30 a.m. The Hercules aircraft dropped another pump down to the fishing vessel, making the situation stable. The "Tide 'N Knot" was escorted back to shore by another fishing boat and the Coastguard vessel "Geliget". The ship arrived safely in Yarmouth Harbour around 2 p.m. and berthed near the ferry terminal. The crew hoped to repair the vessel in time to head back out on Dec 2 morning, however, the ship remained tied up that day. Reporty with photos and video: www.cbc.ca/news/c... www.cbc.ca/news/c...

A hearing begins on Dec 5 in Seattle in which officials will interview witnesses, such as representatives of the company that operated the trawler and its crew. The hearing may last two weeks or longer. That process is taking place in Seattle because the company behind the "Alaska Juris", the Fishing Co. of Alaska, is based there. After the ship was abandoned, three days of searching by water and by air, crews failed. The efforts to find and recover it were called off. The Coast Guard assets were unable to locate it and the company has not found it either The hearing should help to get a clearer picture or view of what happened that day. Once the investigation is complete, the information will be released to the public.

The National Transportation Safety Board will be opening the docket and also holding a media briefing on Dec 13, 2016, on its investigation of the sinking of the "El Faro". The agency recovered the ship's voyage data recorder on Aug 8 and successfully recovered 26 hours of information from it a week later. That information included bridge audio, navigational data, onboard radar images, and wind data. NTSB reported this in Aug 2016: 'The recording began about 5:37 a.m., Sept. 30, 2015 – about 8 hours after the "El Faro" departed Jacksonville, Florida, with the ship about 150 nautical miles southeast of the city. The bridge audio from the morning of Oct 1, captured the master and crew discussing their actions regarding flooding and the vessel's list. The vessel's loss of propulsion was mentioned on the bridge audio about 6:13 a.m. Also captured was the master speaking on the telephone, notifying shoreside personnel of the vessel’s critical situation. He also informed them he was going to send out an emergency distress signal. The master sounded the abandon ship alarm about 7:30 a.m., Oct. 1, 2015. The recording ended about 10 minutes later when the "El Faro" was about 39 nautical miles northeast of Crooked Island, Bahamas. These times are preliminary and subject to change and final validation by the voyage data recorder group.' The docket will contain only factual information about weather, engineering, survival factors, and data from the voyage data recorder, along with a transcript from the recorder's audio recording. The media briefing about the contents of the docket will begin at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time, with NTSB Chairman Christopher Hart, NTSB Office of Marine Safety Director Brian Curtis, and NTSB Office of Research and Engineering Director James Ritter scheduled to participate in it. The agency plans to webcast the briefing. A link to the webcast will be available at ntsb.capitolconne... shortly before the start of the press briefing.

Detention for food dumping affirmed
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s decision to detain the 2OOCL Le Havre" which dumped food waste in close proximity to Fraser Island in May 2016 was affirmed by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal at a hearing on Nov 25. The AMSA had detained the vessel in Brisbane after a Port State Control inspection on May 24 found that its Safety Management System had failed to ensure crew had an adequate understanding of the rules and regulations related to the management and discharge of garbage at sea in accordance with MARPOL. The inspection also found that on May 23 the crew dumped 0.08 cubic meters (2.8 cubic feet) of food waste into the ocean less than three nautical miles from the nearest land. Orient Overseas Container Line, the owner of the vessel, sought review of AMSA’s decision to detain its vessel at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT). At the conclusion of the AAT hearing on Dec 2, the AAT affirmed AMSA’s decision to detain for a Safety Management System failure, finding that it was the correct and preferable decision in the circumstances.

 Danny F II  (Frachtschiff)
vor 3 Tagen von Timsen

Pressure to publish report into sinking of livestock carrier
The master of the "Danny F II" went down with his ship. His elderly, grieving parents passed away without a detailed understanding of what went wrong on board the vessel because they died before the flag state’s investigation was finalized over 3,5 years later. The ship sank in December 2009, but Panama’s investigation report was not sent to the IMO until July 2013, and as yet Panama has not agreed for it to be made public on the internet. The vessel capsized in adverse weather about 15 miles off the coast of Lebanon. When rescue operations ceased some 72 hours later, 40 men had been rescued, 11 had been found dead and 32 remained missing. The vessel had sailed from the Port of Montevideo nd was destined to discharge livestock at the Port of Tartous. It was carrying 10,274 sheep and 17,932 cattle. Sheep and cattle need to continually burp and fart in order to maintain digestive functioning. They can’t do this while swimming, and, along with the weather conditions, their gas-filled bodies are said to have hampered rescue efforts. One reason for this was that the men’s heads would have been hard to spot amidst the bloated bellies of the livestock drowning alongside them in the water. The crew, including 56 livestock attendants, were from the U.K., Russia, Lebanon, Syria, the Philippines, Pakistan, Uruguay, Brazil and Australia. Mostly it was the non-marine crew who were lost, and one unofficial report indicated that their bodies were never expatriated back to their homelands. One exception was the Australian on board. His family allegedly searched morgues in the region. No Caucasian was listed in their records, but his body was eventually found with a covering of oil making his skin appear darker than it was. The presence of oil in the water was not mentioned in Panama’s investigation report, but it was rumored that the vessel’s shell broke during the capsize, releasing oil and trapped livestock into the water. Piecing the story together by the time Panama’s designated accident investigators arrived, most of the survivors had gone home. Only a few were interviewed, and the investigators pieced events together from a variety of sources. The vessel was at anchorage waiting for a berth when the weather worsened. The master decided to leave anchorage, and he gave the order to clean decks six to one, presumably as a result of the growing amount of animal feces on board after the delay in getting the livestock discharged in port. Approximately 10 hoses were being used to clean the decks, and small openings were reported to be open so that the sewage could be washed straight into the sea. The vessel already had a list of three to five degrees, but as the list increased the master ordered cleaning operations to cease. Prior to the capsize, a lot of water was reported on deck six. The master attempted to turn the ship to correct the list without success. There were five cattle pumps on the ship, the most powerful was out of service at the time, and another two were being used to supply water to the livestock which had to be fed and watered manually, as the vessel lacked the automated systems found on some modern vessels. When the list exceeded 20 degrees, the master ordered the engines to be stopped - presumably in anticipation of the vessel’s imminent capsize. He gave the order to abandon ship and sent a distress signal The vessel capsized within 20 minutes of the main engines being stopped and took approximately three minutes to disappear below the waves. The investigation report stated that not all crew heard the abandon ship alarm. There seemed to be a lack coordination and chaos. The crew were not mustered, and one crew member was described as remaining on a cargo deck smoking a cigarette waving good-bye to the remaining crew running to the weather deck. Some started throwing life rafts, and some jumped into the water. Loss of Stability Panama says that the key events in the sinking were: 1. Water ingress through hull openings when cleaning of decks 2. Possible breaking of movable fenders in animal pens, since fenders were in fair condition and easy to break. 3. Cargo shifting as vessel listed to starboard side. 4. Progressive heeling increase to the starboard caused by water accumulation coming from hull openings. 5. The ship continues to heel until she capsized. The investigation report noted that the ship lost stability gradually during the voyage as fuel, water and animal food pellets were consumed. At the time of departure, as well as during the course of the voyage, the stability of the ship should have been monitored. Calculations of stability were apparently the responsibility of the master, although these responsibilities were not clearly specified in the vessel’s manuals. It was believed that one or more hull openings were open or broken during the heavy weather experienced by the vessel, but the investigation notes that the "Danny F II" had a history of deficiencies related to hull openings. Prior to the capsize, water was reported to have entered deck six, and the report notes that livestock waste could have blocked the scuppers on that deck. Water was entering the vessel on every roll, increasing the free surface effect of the water on board and further reducing the ship’s stability. Under these conditions, some of the livestock could have broken out of their pens – which were closed by “small” chains. Simulations conducted as part of the investigation suggest that if approximately 30 cattle moved 10 meters either port or starboard from their pen, the vessel would list by about half a degree from upright. If 300 cattle moved just five meters, the list would be over three degrees Conversion The vessel had 12 cargo decks. In 1994, she was rconverted to be a livestock carrier. The investigation report stated that the conversion was designed by Estudio R. Fonquerny of Argentina and carried out by Pan United Shipyards in Singapore under the supervision of class society RINA. In 1995, she was sold to Rachid Fares Enterprises of Australia and registered with Monrovia. In 2000, she was reflagged to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and then in 2005 she was transferred to Panama with a new owning entity, Falcon Point International Corp. of Panama. At the time of her loss, she was managed by Rabunion Maritime Agency of Lebanon and classed by Isthmus Bureau of Shipping of Panama. The investigation report noted that during 2009, the year of her sinking, she changed class three times. Deficiencies The DANNY F II was detained by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority in 1997 for deficiencies including bulkhead corrosion, defective radio equipment and a defective watertight door. In 2003, Australia again found deficiencies including hull damage affecting the vessel’s seaworthiness and several relating to life-saving equipment. In 2004, deficiencies found in Australia included deck and bulkhead corrosion and the fact that lifeboat drills had not been carried out for more than three months. The last time the "Danny F II" was subject to a livestock preloading inspection in Australia was in December 2004. Areas of non-compliance with Australia’s Marine Order 43 relating to livestock carriers needed to be addressed if the vessel was to operate in Australian waters beyond January 2005. She was not brought into compliance and was subsequently sold and did not return to Australia An inspection by Jordan in 2006 noted hull corrosion, and later that year China noted deficiencies, amongst other things, in the conducting of life boat drills. The following year three other flag states found deficiencies. In January 2009 the ship was detained in Portugal. The deficiencies included corrosion, problems with water-tight doors and problems with lifesaving equipment. Deficiencies were also reported by Lebanon later that year. Recommendations Panama says the lessons to be learned for livestock carriers from the sinking were: 1. The need to review class requirements for livestock fleet which does not exist nowadays. 2. The need for consideration of manning and training requirements of marine and non-marine crew on board livestock carriers. 3. The correct implementation of a Safety Management System should be guaranteed by the crew on board in order to assure that the person responsible for the stability calculation complies with his duty for navigation safety purposes. Allan Graveson, Senior National Secretary at Nautilus International, described Panama’s investigation report as mere verbiage and the livestock carrier as scrap tonnage that shouldn’t have been at sea. Nautilus International joined crew families in pressuring Panama to publish the report, which many claim should have been submitted to IMO much sooner. The loss of the "Danny F II" was considered by the IMO at the first session of the Subcommittee on Implementation of IMO Instruments (III-1) in 2014. Australia did not make formal written submissions to III-1 recommending that Australian standards for livestock ships be adopted internationally. However, the working group on Casualty Analysis (which was part of the III-1 meeting) noted in their report that only Australia had developed rules to address the carriage and handling of livestock. The working group further noted that the marine safety investigation report into the loss of the vessel recommended that a set of rules for the construction and classification of livestock carriers be developed (noting that the lack of such rules had not been identified in the investigation report as a causal factor in the loss of the DANNY F II). As part of the consideration of the report of the working group, Australia intervened to support the working group recommendation that III-1 bring the fact that there were no internationally accepted standards for livestock carriers to the attention of the Maritime Safety Committee. This was agreed this year, looked again into the issue of making accident investigation reports public. The Subcommittee reviewed access rights to casualty-related information for seafarers’ training and education, in particular, reports of investigations into serious casualties, which are available on the publicly accessible casualty module of IMO’s Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS). It was agreed that, in future, reports of investigations into casualties required under the Casualty Investigation Code would be made public, by default, while allowing reporting States to amend the release status of their own reports. Regarding existing reports, the Subcommittee agreed to retain the current status of the reports until the next session of the Subcommittee in order to allow for the review of their release status by the corresponding reporting States, prior to their release to the public.

Two tourists died on board, nothing suspicious
Two American tourists aboard the "Anthem of the Seas" were found dead in the afternoon of Nov 30, 2016, after it docked at the Old San Juan Pier in San Juan. The bodies showed no signs of violence and seemingly had died from natural causes. The men were identified as Joseph M. Ambrussi, a 62-year-old retiree, and William Alan Forsytte, 55, a pharmacist. Both were traveling with their respective wives and planned to stay in hotels in Puerto Rico. One of them died while the ship was at sea and that the other passed away once the ship had arrived at port.

Tanker grounded at Keelung
On Dec 1, 2016, at 10.30 a.m. the "Kang Yun", being loaded with more than 20.000 tons of jet fuel and a crew of 24, ran aground 200 meters off the pier of the oil terminal at Keelung upon entering the port of Shen'ao in New Taipei. The grounding was caused by an engine failure. The ship having a draught of up to 9,2 meters, got stuck with the stern on the rocky bottom. Two patrol boats were deployed at 10.38 a.m. to the grouding site. No leak was reported yet, condition of hull unknown. Tugs were busy to pull the tanker off again, which was regarded as a complicated matter. Divers were sent down for surveys. The ship was refloated in the evening and moored at a nearby jetty in Keelung City. Reports with photo and video: https://video.udn.com/news/604612 focustaiwan.tw/ph... udn.com/news/stor...
