 MV Marthas Vineyard  (Passagierschiff)
vor 20 Std von Timsen

Repairs of crack completed
The SteamshIp Authority (SSA) was back to normal operations in the morning of Sep 30, following a day of delays and adjusted schedules due to a broken bow door on the "Martha’s Vineyard" that required some vehicles to back onto the double-ender ferry. The SSA took the ferry Martha’s Vineyard out of operation on Sep 29 at 5 p.m. Monday to begin repairs. The crack in the support beams of the ferry door was welded with plates as a temporary repair until permanent repairs are carried out in winter, when the "Martha’s Vineyard" is scheduled for dry dock maintenance. The repairs to the bow door were completed and everything was tested around 2:30 a.m. All vessels were back in their normal position for the start of the day's operations.

Peel Ports investigating 14-yachts collision
Peel Ports launched an investigation after the "Arco Arun" damaged 14 moored yachts on the River Medway near the Medway Yacht Club in the morning of Sep 28. The incident took place near the Medway Yacht Club, Lower Upnor around 6:30am when there was a thick fog covering the river. No one was believed to have been on board any of the yachts at the time so there were no injuries, but some of the yachts were badly damaged and had broken masts. Peel Ports were investigating the incident in-line with the appropriate protocols and with the relevant parties. Report with photos: www.kentonline.co...

 MOL Comfort  (Frachtschiff)
vor 21 Std von Timsen

MOL Comfort was less capable of dealing with lateral loads
The design of the "MOL Comfort" was less capable of dealing with lateral loads than similar post-panamax container vessels, a ClassNK investigation has found. Although the design of the ship performed as well as its peers against International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) specifications for vertical bending strength of the hull girder, the "MOL Comfort" performed significantly worse than its peers when lateral load effects were taken into account. The ClassNK investigation considered possible differences in declared and actual weight of containers, possible deviations from the nominal yield strength of the steel used, and the effect of possible deformations in the girder. Those deformations considered were from manufacture, permissible within Japanese shipbuilding standards, and deformation during service as observed on the sister ships. These uncertainty factors were an improvement on the methodology of a previous investigation by Japanese Authorities, which concluded that the hull girder was strong enough to sustain the conditions the "MOL Comfort" faced at sea. The more thorough parameters were fed into a simulation and the vessel's design was compared to seven other ships of 6,000 TEU and 8,000 TEZ designs in 3-hold model elasto-plastic analyses. The models analysed the designs' performances in two high stress scenarios - one where an entire bay is left empty of containers, the other where the ships has low ballast, both of which increase the stress on the hull girder. The investigation found that it was possible that the vertical load on the hull girder exceeded its limits by a narrow margin. Results of the investigation will be made available to other classification societies and submitted to IACS with proposals and suggestions to related IACS rules.

 Megan Mcb  (Schleppendes Schiff)
vor 21 Std von Timsen

Tug pilot did not know how to operate the vessel
A pilot on board the "Megan McB" that sailed through a dam gate before it capsized in the Mississippi River on July 3, 2013, did not know how to operate the vessel, according to a federal investigation report. The "Megan McB" lost engine throttle control at 5:58 a.m. on July 3 while the crew was trying to move it into the main lock of Lock and Dam No. 7 in Dresbach. Strong currents swept the vessel into gate No. 1, where it overturned, trapping and killing deckhand Tyler Trussoni, 22, of Genoa, Wisconsin, one of three crew members aboard. The National Transportation Safety Board concluded the pilot couldn’t avoid the gate because he didn’t know how to use the tow’s electronic engine control throttle. The investigating agency also found tow owner Brennan Marine Inc. of La Crosse didn’t have a procedure that would guarantee pilots were familiar with the electronics unique to the "Megan McB". Brennan officials in a statement on Sep 30, 2014, called the NTSB investigation brief and said the report did not address a significant contributory factor that would have prevented the incident. The vessel is currently undergoing repairs at a shipyard where steps were taken to assure similar accidents do not happen again. Brennan had removed its vessel from the river on July 16 after about 50 gallons of diesel fuel leaked into the water. Damage to the "Megan McB", which remains out of service while Brennan installed air throttle controls, was estimated to be around $500,000. Report with photo: www.winonadailyne...

Divers inspecting propulsion system
After the "Veendam" suffered a defect in the propulsion system on Sep 28, 2014, Holland America Line has been forced to cancel a cruise and repaid the 1,300 passengers who left Quebec to return home. The company has also offered a free cruise. A tug of the Port of Quebec towed the "Veendam" to the dock of the St. Charles River, as it was blocking access to other ships on Sep 30. Divers were called in to inspect the ship and possibly fix the damage. The owner was confident to have it back in service quickly.

Second investigation in ferry accident launched
While the repairs of the "Mercandia IV" were going ahead in Landskrona, it was found out that strong winds and the strong current caused the allision of the ferry with the pier in Helsingborg. Though the ship had slow speed, the impact was so hard that a crew member flew straight into a wall and injured his back. Also a female passenger was injured. Now the police required that the accident is being investigated further. Previously, already the Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board had determined that the accident was caused by the winds and the water current and then completed the investigation because the consequences of the accident were small. But now police in Skåne chosen to launch another investigation as there was a notification of bodily harm.

Tanker with Alaskan crude bound for S.Korea as U.S. seeks new markets
The first U.S. export of Alaskan crude to South Korea in more than a decade set sail at the weekend, according to a company source and shipping data, marking another milestone as booming shale oil output forces domestic drillers to seek new customers. The Suezmax Polar Discovery loaded at the Valdez terminal in Alaska late last week and was due to arrive next week in Yeosu, South Korea, according to shipping data available on Thomson Reuters Eikon. A source at South Korea’s second-biggest refiner GS Caltex Corp said the firm would receive 800,000 barrels of Alaskan crude on October 10 after purchasing the oil on the spot market. It was the first exported cargo of Alaska North Slope (ANS) crude, which is largely excluded from a 40-year U.S. ban on oil exports, since 2004. U.S. government data showed it was the first crude oil exported from the United States to South Korea since 2000, excluding a recent cargo of lightly processed condensate exported from the Gulf. The source at GS Caltex, a joint venture between GS Holdings and Chevron Corp, said the refiner bought the crude at competitive prices but did not elaborate.

China’s first automated shipping terminal put into operation in Xiamen-Haicang
Last month, Zhenhua 17, a cargo ship from Shanghai drew into the 14th berth of Xiamen Haicang bonded terminal area to drop off equipment for the Xiamen Ocean Gate Container Terminal – the first automated one in the country. All loading and delivery work will be done by machines, so very few workers will be seen at the new terminal, which has been nicknamed the “ghost terminal”, said Wu Xinkui, deputy chief of Haicang district in Xiamen. A video of the terminal in action showed a passing container being picked up by an automated bridge crane and being placed on an automated container truck. Under the instruction of a GPS the truck moved to a designated freight yard before a gantry crane picked up the container again and placed it in a designated area. Officials said that the terminal used an automatic simulation system to make sure that human workers were not needed. Compared to a traditional terminal, the automated version that will become operational in Septermber can save 25 percent in energy and cut carbon emissions by 15 percent, said Wang Shenyuan, general manager of the technology department for the new terminal. Construction of the terminal, which cost 658 million yuan ($107 million), started on Oct 27 last year, and when complete its throughput is expected to reach 78,000 to 91,000 TEU per year, officials said. The Haicang bonded terminal area has become a hub for Southeast China’s international shipping industry. So far, the bonded terminal area has a freight throughput of 100 million tons and 10 million TEU of containers. There are 12 berths with a rating of 100,000 tons, which are under construction, and 10 berths with a handling capacity of 50,0000 tons. The Haicang terminal area is China’s most open, functional and convenient bonded area with the most favorable policies, according to officials.

Mumbai crane installation set to halt operations for two months
Shipping lines at Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNP) in Mumbai will be forced to make alternative arrangements as the port trust partially shuts down its container berths for two months from mid-October to install new quay cranes. India’s largest container port, also known as Nhava Sheva, has suffered from intermodal rail delays in recent months; it is now advising carriers to use the port’s private terminals, APM Terminals Mumbai and the DP World-run Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal. Possible substitutes also include the west coast ports of Mundra, Pipavav and Hazira in the state of Gujarat, and Vallarpadam Terminal in Cochin Port for transhipment. In a notice to customers, the port authority said: “During the installation/commissioning of three new super post-Panamax rail-mounted quay cranes alongside the main container berth and mechanisation of the shallow draught berth, normal operations alongside the main container berth are likely to be hampered from 19 October to 1 December. Similarly, operations at the shallow draught berth are likely to be hampered from 29 October to 9 November and from 1 December to 12 December. While the port is making appropriate arrangements to handle maximum number of vessels within the constraints, due to non-availability of adequate operational berth length in accordance with the length of service vessels, it will not be in a position to handle nearly 22 vessels at the main container berth from 20 October to 16 December. All the nine quay cranes, including three new units, are expected to be available for operations from mid-December.” A backlog of inbound intermodal shipments has adversely affected JNP over the past three months, leading to congestion surcharges of between US$125 and $225 per teu for import cargo travelling to northern inland depots. A representative of the Mumbai-Nhava Sheva Ship Agents’ Association told the Journal of Commerce: “A partial closure of the port-owned terminal, lasting two months, will hurt the trade very badly particularly when container movements are picking up.”

Screening of vessels & crew
The US Coast Guard, Sector Houston-Galveston, has begun screening inbound vessels or crew members that have visited ports in Western Africa within their last five ports of call. This is in response to the recent outbreak of Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever (HF). A portion of the screening process requires the Coast Guard to query vessel representatives to determine if any crew members exhibit symptoms. A crew member or passenger is considered "suspect" if they have the following symptoms. (NOTE: symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to the Ebola virus, although 8-10 days is most common.)

Sad days for Harwich and Esbjerg with ferry service ending
The Sirena Seaways" left Harwich for the last time on Sep 28, bringing to an end the verry last passenger ferry service between the UK and Scandinavia. The ship reached Esbjerg for the final time in the afternoon of Sep 29, bringing the end of an era for the Essex port which saw the first DFDS Service arrive in 1880. New EU sulphur rules being introduced in January 2015 would have meant additional costs of around £2m a year. Job losses at the port of Harwich were believed to be around 50 as a result of the service ending. Stena Line continues offering twice daily crossings between Harwich and the Hook of Holland and a twice daily freight service from Harwich to Rotterdam. The company estimated that the more expensive low sulphur fuel will cost them an extra £41 million a year. As a result freight customersweare expected to see prices go up by around 15%. The compan will continue to monitor the impact on the business. Report with photos: www.itv.com/news/...

MV Loch Seaforth faces further delay
There has been a further delay to the delivery of the MV LOCH SEAFORTH by the shipyard in Germany. This latest ship in the Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL) fleet is now scheduled to undergo sea trials starting later this week and enter service as soon as the completion of harbour works at Stornoway make this possible.This delay on the last update in July is due to the on-going electrical fit out and completion of the passenger spaces at the shipyard, together with testing and commissioning of the LOCH SEAFORTH’s many systems. The vessel remains on budget, with standard contractual penalties being applied to the shipyard for late delivery. Following statutory inspections and final vessel performance trials the MV LOCH SEAFORTH will be handed over to the operator, CalMac Ferries Ltd, for familiarisation trials and training with her local crew on the route, before entering service.The MV LOCH SEAFORTH was recently sent to Denmark for a planned modification of the propeller hubs and, since the July update, other key milestones have been met, including the installation and testing of the evacuation system and the inclining test to confirm various deadweight and stability matters, as well as significant progress with trials and testing of the main propulsion systems and other outstanding work throughout the rest of the ship. Tom Docherty, CEO, CMAL, said: “I am disappointed that there has been a further delay to the MV LOCH SEAFORTH by the shipyard in Germany. The original plan was for sea trials to take place in the first week of September on leaving Denmark, however the earlier delays to the installation of electrical services throughout the vessel necessitated a return to Germany to complete the works.“A team from CMAL is onsite, working closely with the shipyard to assist and ensure that the vessel is completed to a high standard, which is ultimately just as important as meeting completion deadlines.”The service on the Stornoway to Ullapool route will be unaffected by the delay to the MV LOCH SEAFORTH, with the existing vessels available and operating to the current timetable.

Chemgas commissions unique dual-fuel LNG tanker
The increasing use of LNG as a fuel was given another boost with today’s commissioning of a new type of inland navigation vessel: SIROCCO. Owned by Chemgas Barging, this conventional gas tanker is equipped with a main engine capable of running on marine gas oil as well as on the clean LNG. What makes this dual-fuel system unique is that it is positioned below decks in the cargo area, which improves vessel safety, Port of Rotterdam Authority said in its media release. The gas tanker “SIROCCO” was developed as a part of the EU-supported LNG Masterplan Rhine-Main-Danube project. The LNG Masterplan aims to promote LNG as a fuel and cargo for the inland navigation industry. It also formulates and enforces the necessary (safety) regulations for the use and transport of LNG. The LNG Masterplan is supported by a 40 million Euro European Commission grant through the TEN-T Programme and is implemented by a consortium of 33 companies and organisations from the public and private sectors from twelve European member states. The project is supervised and coordinated by Pro Danube Management GmbH and the Port of Rotterdam Authority.

Medical ship arrives in Tanzania
MWANZA, Tanzania - Jubilee Hope’ a Scottish donated medical ship was expected to anchor at Mwanza port after arrival from Kisumu port in Kenya. The medical ship project is being run jointly by Africa Inland Church (AIC), Geita Diocese and a Scottish charity organization Vine Trust. According to AIC Bishop Mussa Magwesela the medical services would be offered for free. “The ship would arrive in Mwanza from Kisumu, Kenya and it’s expected to serve about 400,000 people a year on the islands of L. Victoria in Tanzania,” he said recently. Rev said the project would offer medical services in AIDS, dental, laboratory, mother and child health care in the regions of Geita, Mwanza and Kagera. The floating hospital would cater for more than 200 small islands on Lake Victoria. Most of these islands get minimal primary care services. The 160-ton medical ship left Glasgow to Mombasa, Kenya on January 22, 2014—it anchored at Mombasa port on May 2, 2014 after a 101 days journey. It was transported with the help of Aberdeen oil company the Wood Group, which operates in Africa and has donated technical know-how to move the boat. It travelled all its way from Glagow to SouthAfrica and eventually arrived in East Africa - its destination.At Mombasa port the whole entire deck was removed in order to reduce the total height of the ship for transportation. Thereafter it started a 1,200 km journey to Kisumu port for re-assembling. On Lake Victoria there are over 150 island communities with over 500,000 people in the Tanzanian sector alone. These people have little or no access to a meaningful health service. The ship is fitted with examinations rooms, a dentist’s surgery and a laboratory. Rev Magwesela says the medical ship would be staffed by a core team of Tanzanians, including doctors and volunteers from the charity.
