SAR operation at capsized dredger called off
The SAR effort, tasked with the recovery of bodies from the overturned "Ocean Line 208" in Tanjung Punggai has been called off by the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), as the lead agency, on May 26 at 2.30 p.m. The latest body recovered was on May 25 at 12.25 p.m. by fisherman at about two nautical miles from Pulau Pemanggil and about 65 nautical miles from the location of incident last week. On the whole four bodies of Chinese nationals and a sole Malaysian have been recovered since the operations began on May 20. Nine other bodies of the seamen have yet to be accounted for. There was only one survivor. The decision to end the SAR operations was made after discussions with all participating agencies. The last SAR operations included patrols in the waters off Tanjung Punggai and also diving recovery efforts of the vessel’s hull. The SAR operations would continue if there were new leads. The joint SAR team consisted of the MMEA, marine police, Malaysian Navy and the Marine Department. The team was faced with rough sea conditions, making the recovery process by divers difficult.

Captain Calls For Tighter Traffic System at Suva Port
The captain of one of the international regular ships to our shores has called for the introduction of a Vessel Traffic System. Pacific Islander II Captain Michael Flores made these comments after his ship sounded its whistle several times at a boat believed to be fishing at the entrance of Suva Harbour. Captain Flores said: “I think in Fiji ports communication is good, light is good but think there should be a VTS. “The harbour control must monitor also the passage. At times there are a lot of fishing boats which becomes very hard for us to detect at entrance.” Harbour control and services is looked after by the Harbour Master which falls under the jurisdiction of Fiji Ports Corporation Limited. Captain Flores said while the boat was alerted within the nick-of-time it could have fatal had the crew members not detected the boat on the 17134-tonne multi-purpose vessel. “You don’t have enough space to maneuver, the two sides are shallow water, reefs. “But the fishing boats, the fishers are just staying in the middle. “Maybe if the harbour control can have a good radar control so they can monitor the area, this would help lift of profile of your port services.” fijisun.com.fj/20...

GrainCorp loads biggest ever single shipment of grain out of Port of Brisbane
The biggest single shipment of grain that grain handler GrainCorp has loaded in Brisbane is being prepared. A ship is being loaded with 66,000 tonnes of sorghum sourced mostly from southern Queensland and will leave for China by the weekend. Brisbane GrainCorp terminal manager Josh Connell said the record breaking shipment was an exciting milestone for grain growers in Queensland. “It’s GrainCorp’s largest sorghum vessel and it’s the largest vessel we have loaded on behalf of anyone (in Brisbane), this one is for ADM,” he said. “It certainly looks like it’s our biggest individual pour.” Mr Connell said the grain could be used in a variety of ways once it was unloaded in China. “Sorghum into China typically goes three ways, it’s either stock food or they make a cereal for human consumption or alcohol.” Source: ABC Rural

50, 000 tons of food aid dock at Port Sudan
The World Food Program (WFP) has disclosed that some 50, 000 tons of food aid from the United States intended for Sudanese bracing for hunger due to famine have docked at Port Sudan on Tuesday. In a statement seen by the {African Press Agency}, the WFP said the relief food aid was carried by the US vessel Liberty Grace and arrived at the Sudanese port with 47 500 tons of Sudan’s staple food sorghum. The US charge d’affaires in Khartoum, Jerry Lanier witnessed the docking of the ship laden with the food donations which were facilitated by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Bags of sorghum were uploaded on trucks which were driven away, destined for Sudanese in communities gravely affected by ongoing conflicts between government troops and rebels especially in the troubled West Darfur region. Other areas to benefit from the food aid are Blue Nile and South Kordofan states where ethnic conflicts have displaced over two million people most of whom are in desperate need of humanitarian relief. The USAID food aid comes as the United Nations warned that at some 4 million people in Sudan are in need of such assistance. en.starafrica.com...

CMA CGM adds Baltimore to U.S. calls; launches separate service with 15 vessels
French containership giant CMA CGM Group said today it will expand its trans-Atlantic network effective the end of May, when it begins calling at the Port of Baltimore and adds a rotation linking nine ports in the U.S. and northern Europe. Baltimore, which CMA CGM has traditionally served through intermodal connections, will get its first direct vessel call in the ship line's history. The U.S. port will be added to the liner "Liberty Solo" service, which will now connect seven U.S. and European ports using four vessels, each with a 1,800-2,000 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) capacity, CMA CGM said. The new "Vespucci" service, supported by 15 4,500-TEU vessels, will connect the ports of Antwerp; Rotterdam; Bremerhaven; Le Havre; Southampton; New York; Norfolk; Charleston; and Savannah. The new service will be operated in cooperation with German liner Hamburg Sud Group and United Arab Shipping Co., which is jointly owned by six Arab states in the Persian Gulf. With these additions, CMA CGM said its North America and Northern European services will cover 15 ports of call, more than any other container line. Source: www.dcvelocity.co...

Longview port in talks for an oil refinery
The Port of Longview announced Tuesday that it is negotiating with Riverside Refining to bring an oil refinery to its site. The refinery would process 45,000 barrels a day, of which 30,000 barrels would be crude oil, with the remainder being used cooking oil, according to a March 18 letter from Riverside to the State Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council and the governor's office. The council would be the permitting agency for the project. That volume would be about one-sixth of the expected volume that would come to a rail-to-ship oil transfer terminal proposed at the Port of Vancouver by Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies that is now under review by the siting council. In the letter, Riverside said it expects the refinery to generate about 1,600 barrels of liquid petroleum gas, 9,800 barrels of gasoline, 15,300 barrels of diesel/jet fuel and 4,900 barrels of kerosene each day. In its proposal, Riverside said all its finished products would be shipped by barge to local and regional markets along the West Coast. The 47-acre site would receive shipment of one unit train every two or three days, Riverside said in its proposal. More to read at: www.columbian.com...

German shipping company fined for pollution
On May 25, 2015, the AML Ship Management in Hamburg has been sentenced in federal court to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines for dumping oily bilge in the water off the coast of Alaska in August, 2014. It was sentenced to pay $800,000 in fines for violating the 'Clean Water Act' and the 'Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships,' for dumping 4,500 gallons of oily bilge water into the ocean about 165 nautical miles south of the Aleutian Islands. The "City of Tokyo", twhen sailing from Tokyo to Portland, Oregon, dumped the oily bilge directly overboard using a pump, without first processing it through the required pollution prevention equipment. The overboard discharge caused a sheen in the water off the stern of the vessel, and this was witnessed by crew members. The vessel's chief engineer, Nicolas Sassin, who was responsible for the dump, was tried and sentenced separately for the crime in court in Oregon where it was ruled that he used a special skill due to his engineering abilities, to dump the bilge. Sassin will serve five months in home confinement and five years of probation. Of the total fines, AML will pay $675,000 in criminal fines and $125,000 in community restitution which will go to Alaska SeaLife Center to be used in projects and research.

Marine Atlantic bought ferries from Stena Line
Marine Atlantic announced on May 26, 2015, that it has purchased both the "Blue Puttees" and "Highlanders" which have been providing ferry service between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia since 2011. The vessel purchase was part of a $375-million investment into Marine Atlantic that was announced last month by the federal government. The purchase, at a cost of $100 million per vessel, would allow the Crown corporation to solidify its fleet for the future. The remaining money was to be used to cover the operating subsidy, and for other capital projects. Both vessels have been chartered from Stena for the past four years, serving the Port aux Basques-North Sydney route. The original deal in 2010 was for a five-year charter, with the option to extend for another five years, or purchase the vessels outright. In early February, Marine Atlantic announced it had renewed the lease for the "Atlantic Vision" until November 2017, at a cost of some $40 million. The actual announcement builds upon a previous five-year, $521-million funding commitment announced in 2010 aimed at renewing Marine Atlantic's fleet, and upgrading shore-based infrastructure and business processes. The investment resulted in improved vessel reliability, and increased vehicle, cabin and seating capacity.

 Condor Liberation  (Schnellboot)

Ferry operated within limits when alliding with quay
A report by Condor Ferries has cleared the crew of th2 "Condor Liberation" for blame for an accident. The ferry struck the side of the quay at St Peter Port, Guernsey, while attempting to dock on Mar 28. The report said the ferry had landed heavily on a vertical steel piling. The fendering on some of the berths in the Channel Islands, UK and French ports served by Condor is inappropriate for high speed craft. Condor would work with ports to improve the fendering. Gusts of up to 32 knots made it difficult to berth, and the report noted that all its pre-service port trials had been done in moderate conditions. Using manual, rather than automatic, setting might have improved the berthing. But the master’s use of automatic mode – and his attempt to berth – were both reasonable. Captain Fran Collins, executive director of operations at Condor Ferries, said the report showed the ship had been operating within safe limits.

The CROSS immediately alerted a Cayman helicopter of the Naval aviation base Lanvéoc and reported the distress situation to nearby vessels. The MRCC Madrid sent an EC225 helicopter of SASEMAR in La Coruña. Both helicopters were operating at the limit of their range and their work on site was thus limited to about ten minutes. The only option was to winch immediately the nine crew members of "Ge Mi Na" with the two helicopters operating successively. A Falcon 50 of the Naval Aviation base Lann-Bihoué was mobilized to coordinate and guide the two helicopters. The Caiman was able to hoist five crew members before leaving the area at 11:25 p.m., the EC225 hosted one man. The three remaining crew members were forced to seek refuge in their liferaft. They were taken aboard the container m/v "MSC Japan", which was coming from Sines and had proceeded to the position of the "Ge Mi Ma" thanks to the distress relay issued by the CROSS.

They did not know exactly know where they were, they thought somewhere off Rotterdam. The distress call was relayed to the KNRM at 3:45 a.m. The traffic center Hoek did not have the boat on its radar screens. After some attempts to get a VHF bearing it became clear that the yacht should be more to the south of the port. When the lifeboat was off the piers a better radio contact could be established with the yacht and she was tracked in position 51°.58.50 N 003°57.30 E. The lifeboat "George Dijkstra" of the station Ter Hejde was on scene at 4.45 a.m. and could connect a towing wire. Luckily the yacht had got stuck on sand on a water depth of 2.40 metres. At 5 a.m. she was pulled off and checked for damage and leakage. The sailors had everything in order, good clothes and the correct charts. As the situation appeared to be under control, the "George Dijkstra" returned to Berghaven at 5.45 a.m. The "Regula" was guided to Maasvlakte II with large lights. they kept for the harbour mouth and thought to led lights. Under guidance of the "RPA 16" the yacht entered the port for further investigations.

The municipality has negotiated with the Royal Danish family and it has been agreed that the new ferry instead should be called "Prinsesse Isabella". The inhabitants of Samsø are annoyed that they were not consulted in the case of the change of name, since it is the municipality and thus the citizens on the island, who own the ferry. Signatures of protest were collected ahead of the municipal meeting in the afternoon of May 26, where the decision on the name change should be taken. The protesters believed it was a little strange that there should be a vote on something that has already been decided, and many intended to join the City Council meeting, hoping to influence the vote.

Third bulker grounding on Paraná River within one week
For the third time within a week,a large bulk carrier ran aground on the Paraná River. This time it was the "Dubai Energy" which was loaded with 41.000 tons iron ore and exceeded the maximum draught of 7,68 meters. The ship got stuck on May 26, 2015, at 3:10 a.m. close to San Pedro port. The vessel had just departed from San Nicolas de Los and was bound to Recalada. The tugs "Tumbador 1" and "Argentino 1" were dispatched to refloat it. The river actually has very low water levels due to drought in Brazil so that the shipping channels are not deep enough.

Purple Beach evacuated
Because measurements identified pollutants in the air, crew and rescue forces were evacuated with helicopters in the afternoon of May 26. More than 20 people were taken to hospital as a precaution. The air and sea space around the burning ship was initially barred. The oil control vessel "Neuwerk" was on the way to the freighter. The Central Command for Maritime Emergencies intended to flood the hot area of cargo hold to get the situation under control. The fire had lit at night in a cargo space. When the crew spotted the smoke, they used the onboard fire szppressing system and sealed off the affected cargo hold. Since the early morning hours, fire fighters and experts of the casualy commands were aboard were the "Purple Beach" in order to investigate whether the fertilizer the ship was carrying was on fire. Having established that the atmosphere on the ship was dangerous, the Analytic Task Force (ATF) took the decision to evacuate the whole ship. It was not clear what happened inside the cargo hold. As soon as possible the load was to be flooded to reduce the temperature. The emergency command has sent the multi purpose vessel "Mellum" to the deep water anchorage in the German Bight where the vessel dropped anchor. Actually also on scene were the lifeboats "Hermann Marwede", "Hermann Rudolf Meyer", "Johann Fidi", the "Nordergründe" and the "Vogelsand".

Djibouti Aims to Become "New Singapore or Dubai"
Djibouti says it is aiming to become a key port, akin to Dubai or Singapore, and a commercial hub of eastern Africa, Yahoo News reports. The small country of about 850 thousand says it wants to capitalize on its location on one of the world's busiest shipping lanes and access to the Suez Canal, as well as its current position as the main port for Ethiopia, to become the gateway from Asia to Africa. "More and more shipping lines are interested in Djibouti, we are now making the way to be a Dubai, even Singapore!" said Suleiman Ahmed, a senior executive at Doraleh Container Terminal. Growing interest in Djibouti, a six to 10 percent increase in cargo traffic per year, and a growing number of countries, such as the U.S., France, and Japan using the country as a place for military and naval bases, comes as other ports in the region reportedly face increasing struggle. "Yemen's once key port of Aden - just across the Gulf of Aden from Djibouti - is now a war zone," reported Yahoo News. More at shipandbunker.com...

China mulls bigger stake in Colombo port
Sri Lanka is looking at boosting China’s stake at the Colombo Port and in the process increase the Sri Lanka Ports Authority’s (SLPA) ownership in the new harbours. Currently, discussions are underway between the SLPA and the China Merchant Holdings (CHM) on getting the latter to come in as an investor for the East Terminal under construction, Ports Minister Arjuna Ranatunga said at a media briefing held in Colombo n Friday. He explained that since the Colombo South Harbour’s revenues generated by the government amount to only 15 per cent the CHM, under the present arrangement, gets the rest of the majority stake in the terminal. In this respect, the minister said the government was looking at increasing its stake in the South Harbour as it believes the state should have a majority share of the revenue. The new policy of the government as per joint ventures is for the state to own 51 per cent as a result of which the East Terminal would be given out on this basis to any investor. In a bid to turnaround the agreement already entered into with the CHM by the Rajapaksa administration, discussions are underway to work out a deal with the Chinese company. Source: The Sunday Times

Development work begins at Cuba’s container terminal in Mariel
A little more than a year after the official inauguration of the Containers Terminal in Cuba, the first projects to be approved by the food industry are underway there, local daily “Juventud Rebelde” said. The terminal, officially operated since January 2014, is located in the Special Economic Development Zone of Mariel (ZEDM), some 45 km to the west of Havana. A port terminal in the Mariel mega-project is able to store up to 800,000 20-foot containers per year and receive Post-Panamax vessels. Idalmis Gonzalez, a spokesperson for ZEDM, said a space for storing 10,000 square meters of dry cargo and 5,000 cubic meters of refrigerated cargo has been completed. Gonzalez said that another priority was the rail network, with the construction of 21-km railway lines and the renovation of almost 60-km others planned to facilitate the transportation of goods and workers.

Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority will develop the terminal on a vacant piece of land where Tamil Nadu Housing Board once had its cellular concrete plant, official sources said. Though there are 37 container freight stations around the city fringes, the container lorry drivers park their vehicles along roads leading to Chennai Port, resulting in traffic pile ups. Lorries use only the service lane of Ennore High Road, but in the event of even a minor accident, motorists suffer, said S. Purushothaman, a government employee and an Ennore resident.

Salvage bids will be ranked according to a 100-point scale, with technological capability accounting for 90 percent of the evaluation. The bidding price will account for the other 10 percent. The terms of the salvage tender require the salvor to film the entire process in high-resolution video. The project must be completed by the end of 2016 including any delays associated with adverse weather. Bids must be announced by 6 p.m. on June 22. The ferry is expected to be significantly corroded. It is located on the seafloor of the Maenggol Channel which is known for its strong and potentially dangerous currents in 44 meters water deotg and is now on its left side in about 1.5 meters of sediment. Various plans have been proposed for the vessel’s salvage. One involved divers drilling 93 holes in the side of the vessel so it could be tied to two cranes which would then be used to lift it about three meters (10 feet) off the sea floor. It could then be moved to a safer location for lifting, or on to submersible floating dock. 4, while en route to the country's southern resort island of Jeju.

Viking Line faces probe over bow doors incident
One day in early February this year, Viking Line's Rosella passenger ferry left port from Mariehamn, Åland with its bow door open. The Åland Shipping Association says that the ship's crew tried unsuccessfully to close the visor. The hydraulic locking system wasn't working properly, but the ship set sail towards Sweden on schedule. As the cruise began, the ship's crew consulted Viking's technical director. Together, they agreed that if they weren't able to close the door once the boat reached a lighthouse, some 7 kilometres from port, they'd turn back to port. However, the traffic safety administration says that Rosella had already passed the lighthouse and sailed into open waters before the bow door was secured. More at yle.fi/uutiset/vi...

Libyan government warplanes attack ship near port of Sirte
A product tanker has been strafed by the Libyan air forces amid tensions between rival political groups. The 2004-built 35,000 dwt Anwaar Afriqya was attacked while being docked at Sirte. IHS Maritime's AISLive vessel-tracking data shows Anwaar Afriqya loaded gasoil in Piraeus, Greece, in mid-May and arrived in Sirte on 22 May. The vessel, operated by state-owned General National Maritime Transport Co (GNMTC), was chartered by Libya's National Oil Corporation. According to media reports, one person was killed in the attack. The internationally recognised government in exile in Benghazi claimed that the vessel was carrying reinforcements and weapons for the rival regime in Tripoli. "Our jets warned an unflagged ship off Sirte city, but it ignored the warning," government official Saqer al-Joroushi told Reuters. "We gave it a chance to evaluate the situation, then our fighting jets attacked the ship because it was unloading fighters and weapons. "The ship is now on fire. We are in war and we do not accept any security breaches, whether by land, air, or sea." It is not the first time Anwaar Afriqya has been caught in the political tensions. In March 2011, the tanker was hijacked by a group of armed rebels and diverted to the Port of Tobruk near the border with Egypt. The rebels eventually returned the tanker to GNMTC. www.ihsmaritime36...

Training ship for Great Lakes sailors draws attention during brief stop
he imposing ship seemed to appear out of nowhere Saturday morning, docked just past the USS Croaker and USS Little Rock on Buffalo’s Inner Harbor. It turns out the 224-foot, black-hulled boat – emblazoned with its name “State of Michigan” – was simply on a break from its long tour of duty navigating the Great Lakes. Onboard were 56 students – or cadets – in their first year of learning how to be sailors and officers in the commercial shipping industry. The State of Michigan, it turns out, is their 1,800-horsepower floating classroom – a training ship for the Great Lakes Maritime Academy based in Traverse City, Mich. Originally built as a submarine surveillance ship, the State of Michigan had sailed from Toledo, Ohio, and pulled into Buffalo about 9 a.m. The ship has been stopping in Buffalo around the Memorial Day weekend each of the last three years, though it doesn’t stay long. At 3:45 p.m. Saturday, crews were hauling in the gangplank and stood in single file to haul in the thick ropes that tied the ship to the dock.

Strong winds turn final cruise ship away
The last cruise ship of the season has been turned away from Port of Tauranga today, May 24 due to high winds. The luxury liner Oceania's Insignia was scheduled to arrive at 8am today, before departing at 6pm the same day. The cruise ship can carry 684 passenger and 400 staff. A Port of Tauranga Spokesperson confirmed the cruise ship was turned away due to high winds. He says it has not been rescheduled to berth at Mount Maunganui after being turned away. On its arrival, the Insignia would have been the 79th and final cruise ship out of a scheduled 83 since last October – an itinerary that was readjusted due to weather conditions, which has brought ship numbers down 1.6 per cent on the 2013/14 season.

Iranian aid cargo vessel for Yemen offloaded in Djibouti
United Nations officials in the Horn of Africa port of Djibouti said Saturday they had taken charge of the aid cargo carried by an Iranian ship headed for war-torn Yemen. The vessel, the MV Shahed, is carrying 2,500 tonnes of aid including flour, rice, canned food, medical supplies and bottled water, all urgently needed in the conflict-wracked state just across the Gulf of Aden from Djibouti. "The cargo has been handed over to WFP in Djibouti and is currently being offloaded," said UN World Food Programme spokeswoman Abeer Etefa told AFP. "The ship carries 2,500 ton of humanitarian aid and that includes mainly rice and wheat flour, as well as medicine, water, tents and blankets." Djiboutian authorities said the Iranian cargo ship arrived late Friday night in the Gulf of Aden port. "The ship will be completely unloaded and reloaded onto other vessels, everything is transparent," Djibouti port authority chief Abubaker Hadi told AFP. The ship's mission was overshadowed by US calls for it to head to a UN emergency relief hub in Djibouti instead of docking in the Yemeni port of Hodeida. Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of arming Yemen's Huthi rebels, but Tehran denies the charge. Iran says it is helping in Yemen by opposing air strikes and providing aid. All aid and humanitarian assistance will be sent on WFP ships to Yemen, either in the port of Hodeida, or the southern port of Aden, Etefa added.
