Dead whale found off Alameda, dragged through bay on ship’s bow
Federal officials were trying to figure out how to remove a dead whale that was found floating in the Oakland Estuary off an Alameda dock on Wednesday and could disrupt Port of Oakland traffic. The whale, whose type was not immediately identified by the U.S. Coast Guard, appears to have been dragged into San Francisco Bay from the open ocean by a container ship this week, said Lt. J.G. Aulner. Whether the ship struck and killed the animal, or came across it after it died, was not immediately known. In fact, crew members didn’t even know they had apparently pushed the marine mammal through the Golden Gate. “The ship accepted tugs on the way in and they were told there was a whale on the bulbous bow,” said Aulner. The animal is believed to have sunk when it neared Alameda on Monday. But as it decomposed, it resurfaced. Coast Guard officials said it’s uncommon to find dead whales in the bay. www.sfgate.com/ba...

APM Terminals offloads Gioia Tauro container hub and bets on Savona Vado
Exactly 15 years after landing in Southern Italy’s main container hub, APM Terminals has now decided to sell its 33% stake in the Medcenter Container Terminal based in Gioia Tauro. The company from now will be jointly owned by Contship Italia (Eurogate Group) and Gitaurco Ltd (Msc Group). Terms of sale and price were not officially disclosed. “The sale of our 33% share in Medcenter is based on a business decision to divest a non-core asset so we can focus on our core business” Tom Boyd, APM Terminals external communications director, explains to Splash. “Currently we are building Italy’s port of the future called APM Terminals Vado, a deepwater port in Savona (Northern Italy) that will serve supply chains for markets in Italy, Southern France, Switzerland and Bavaria (Germany)” adds Carlo Merli, Ceo of APM Terminals Vado. APM Terminals Vado will open in January 2018 with 800,000 teu annual capacity and a 17 meter depth to serve the last generation of container vessels.

Explosion at Petrobras Bunker Fuel Plant Kills Two
RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 26 (Reuters) – A heating unit at a Petrobras depot in Brazil used to treat fuel for ocean-going ships exploded on Wednesday, killing two workers, the state-run oil company said in a statement. The blast and resulting fire broke out about 10 a.m. (1300 GMT) while workers were doing planned maintenance on the heating unit, said the press office of BR Distribuidora SA, the fuels distribution unit of Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as Petrobras is formally known. The heating unit is used to raise the temperature and reduce the viscosity of bunker fuel, a heavy, sludgy refined petroleum product similar to heating oil. Heating the fuel makes it easier to load aboard ships. The fire at the naval-fuels depot at the Port of Tubarão near Vitória, Brazil, was brought under control by on-site firefighters and presents no immediate risk to anyone in the vicinity, BR Distribuidora said in a statement. The names of the dead workers were not immediately available, it said. The fire is the third fatal accident this year at facilities owned by or operated on behalf of Petrobras in Brazil’s Espirito Santo state, the country’s second-highest oil and natural gas producer after neighbor Rio de Janeiro. Combined, the accidents have killed 13 and injured at least 26. gcaptain.com/expl...

The "Michipicoten" provided a lee for a distressed sailboat in adverse weather on Aug 26, 2015, 18 miles east of Alpena, Michigan in Lake Huron. The area was under a small-craft advisory with reported on-scene conditions of 20-25 knots and waves 6-7 feet, and the U.S. Coast Guard, the Alpena Sheriff's Department and several good Samaritans were assisting two men aboard the 42-foot sailboat that began taking on water. Shortly after 9 a.m., watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, received a call from the sailboat 18 nautical miles east of Alpena in Lake Huron. The men stated they were currently using a hand pump to dewater the vessel. Sector Sault dispatched a crew from the Coast Guard Station Alpena aboard a 25-foot response boat, a crew from Coast Guard Station St. Ignace, Michigan, aboard a 45-foot response boat and a crew from Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City, Michigan, aboard a Dolphin helicopter. They also issued an urgent marine information broadcast advising mariners in the area of the situation. The "Michipicoten" and a 45-foot pleasure craft responded to the broadcast along with the Alpena Sheriff's Department. Just after 11 a.m., the Traverse City aircrew arrived on scene and lowered a rescue swimmer and a dewatering pump to the vessel. After arriving aboard, the swimmer was made aware that one of the men had a history of heart problems and was beginning to experience chest pains. Not long after, the man started to lose consciousness. The crew medically evacuated the man to Alpena Regional Medical Center. His condition is currently unknown. The crew aboard the 25-foot response boat arrived just before 11:30 a.m, and began to assist with the dewatering process. Just after noon, the crew aboard the 45-foot response boat arrived on scene, placed the sailboat in tow and are currently en route to Thunder Bay Harbor in Alpena.

Arklow Brave located missing crab boat without skipper
On Aug 25, 2015, at 6:05 p.m., the "Arklow Brave" located a crab boat which was drifting almost 20 kilometers SW of the Glénan archipelago in the area where the fishing vessel "Ar Morvran" was missing. In approaching it, the crew of the freighter confirmed the identity of the vessel but did not see anyone aboard. At 2.05 p.m., the CROSS Etel had been contacted by a witness who was concerned about the fishing vessel and its skipper. After contacting the family of the owner of the ship, several shore, the semaphore Beg-Meil and witnesses at sea and on land, the CROSS got the confirmation that the 9-m-ship had sailed from Port-La-Forêt at 9.35 a.m. with one person on board. It attempted to establish radio contact with the fisherman, which was without success. The CROSS Etel started Mayday Relay broadcast messages to all ships in the region to ask them to perform a proper lookout. The "SNS 297" of the lifeboat station Fouesnant, a Lynx helicopter of the Navy, two fishing vessels from the port of Port-La-Forêt, the "SNS 140" of the lifeboat station Loctudy and a Dragon 29 helicopter of the civil security started an SAR operation. After the "Arklow Brave" reported its findings, the Dragon 29 helicopter arrived at 6:27 p.m., right in time to attend the sinking of the "Morvan Ar" in rough sea conditions. The helicopter crew immediately attempted to locate the fisherman, but without success. The helicopter left the area soon after. A Cayman 33E helicopter of the Navy resumed the search at 7:14 p.m. At 10:05 p.m., in the absence of new information and after consultation with the Director of the CROSS Etel, the search was suspended.

Turkey’s Albayrak Group to operate Somali’s Mogadishu Port
A signing ceremony was held for the transfer of operations of Mogadishu International Port, located in Somali’s capital Mogadishu, to Turkey’s Albayrak Group, which was attended by Somali Ports Minister Abdurrahman Muallim and Deputy Minister Cemal Buru, representatives from the Albayrak Group and officials from the Turkish Embassy in Mogadishu. Delivering a speech at the ceremony, Minister Muallim said: “The Somali government has officially transferred the operating duty of the port to the Albayrak Group today. We hope the port will develop and reach the standards of world ports in this process.” Stating that employees currently working in the port will continue to work, Muallim noted that the Albayrak Group would contribute to Somali’s economic development. Albayrak Group Chairman Ahmet Albayrak said that they aimed to attract international trade networks to Somali by supporting Mogadishu Port with modern equipment. He also emphasized that 55 percent of the revenue earned from the port would be delivered to the Somali Treasury and the rest would be allocated to development of port services. No further details were shared about the agreement and profit sharing. The Port of Mogadishu was closed in 1991 after the central government fell, and it was re-opened in 1992 by the United Nations Peacekeeping Force, which was sent to the region due to the ongoing civil war. The port, which was closed again in 1995 after the UN Peacekeeping Force left the country, was re-opened in 2006 by the Islamic Courts Union that controls south Somali. Source: Daily Sabah

Cyprus: Minister attempts to avert further port strike
Just the threat of a strike can disturb Cyprus’ economy, Communication and Works Minister Marios Demetriades warned Cyprus Ports Authority (CPA) employees unions on Monday as he attempted to avert the 48-hour strike at the Limassol port announced for August 27 and 28. He met with union representatives who are threatening to strike in protest over what they say is the lack of progress in talks with the government over a voluntary retirement scheme. The government’s position is that CPA employees have no reason to strike as they have been given the option of voluntary retirement or transferring to the civil service on the same salary and benefits once the ports are privatised. The government has also promised to try and have some of them rehired by whatever private company eventually manages the port. At the meeting, Demetriades gave the union representatives in writing all that has been discussed and agreed by the two sides and asked them to submit their comments so that the final text is presented to the cabinet. www.hellenicshipp...

Port Kembla closure
A number of severe weather warnings had been issued by the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) for the Illawarra Coast, and the Port Kembla Harbour Master on Aug. 25 has directed that Port Kembla be closed, GAC reports. Boarding operations, ship handling and tug operations have become extremely hazardous due to high winds and seas in (and at the entrance / approaches to) the port. It is very likely that the port will remain closed until 25 August 2015 evening (local time) or possibly through the next day, although the forecasts are a little hard to interpret due to the localised nature of the weather systems. Based upon the forecasts issued by BOM, the Harbour Master had directed all vessels to clear the anchorage on Sunday evening (local time) and vessels have been told to remain more than 12nm from the Coast until further notice. This includes the vessels that were at anchor in the Northern Illawarra but not destined for Port Kembla.

Fire will burden bad financial situation
The fire at the Daewoo Shipbuilding Yardon Aug 24, 2015, damaged sufficiently two tankers, but the value of the loses was to be estimated at later stage. The local authorities started investigating the accident and checkinh the safety rules and procedures in the shipyard. The ships under construction were with length of 226.00 m, beam of 36.60 m and deadweight of 86,000 DWT. The vessels were with estimated delivery date in second half of 2016 with total value of the project 1.44 billion USD. The accident in Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering’s yard definitely will burden the bad financial situation of the South Korean shipbuilding industry. Two dockworkers died and seven others were injured after large fire erupted in Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering’s yard in Okpo, South Korea. The situation was classified as serious according to the local authorities and forced evacuation of all workers and engaged several shore firefighting brigades. The accident happened during welder working at VLGC under construction, which caused explosion of gases in the inner compartment and fire in the vessel. The fire spread rapidly to the whole dock and even caught another VLGC under construction, sending huge flames and smoke in the air. The local fire department spent most of the day tackling the blaze and after almost 24 hours succeeded to get control of the fire. Reports with photos: www.newsmaritime.... viswa.mfame.guru/...

Battle for life of two fishermen after inhaling toxic gases
Medicals were battling to save the lives of two fishermen after they inhaled toxic gases on the "Oilean an Oir" on Aug 24, 2015, at 1.30 p.m. in Killybegs. The fishermen have been transferred to the intensive care unit at Letterkenny General Hospital where they were both put into an induced coma. Their condition last night was critical but stable. They were overcome by fumes when cleaning out a hold where the fish are held. It was empty and they found stagnant water in the pipework. It had been lying there for a while and it is believed the two men inhaled ammonia and hydrogen sulphide gas from organic matter that had been rotting. One guy was out first, and then the other guy went to help him but also ended up passing out. One of the victims was a 27-year-old from Galway, while the other aged 46 was from the Philippines. The scene was preserved by gardai and officials from the Health and Safety Authority arrived at the scene in the night.

Sailings from Funen cancelled due to mechanical trouble
A mechanical problem on the "Fynshav" meant a cancellation of the sailing on Aug 24, 2015, from Funen. A spare part had to be transported from Frederikshavn to Bøjden first. This meant that in strong winds the "Frigg Sydfyen" which was also sailing on the route until the end of August could not back out from the basin in Bøjden as the risk of running into "Fynshav" was too great. Therefore, for about four hours there were no sailings on the route until 2 p.m. The problems apparently have not been resolved yet, further sailings had to be cancelled later in the day.

Self discharger saved man from sinking boat
The "Joseph L. Block "responded to a distress call and rescued a boater out of Lake Michigan’s waters in the morning of Aug 24, 2015, after the boater’s 28-foot vessel began to sink 10 miles off of Port Washington, Wisconsin. SAR coordinators at the Coast Guard Sector Lake Michigan, in Milwaukee received a distress call just before 8:30 a.m. that a vessel was taking-on-water 10 miles east of the Port Washington pier heads. The Coast Guard launched a crew aboard a 45-foot response boat from Coast Guard Station Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and a helicopter crew aboard a Dolphin helicopter from Coast Guard Air Facility Waukegan, Illinois, to respond. The "Joseph L. Block" quickly diverted to assist the boater. The crew located the sinking vessel and found the boater in the water, wearing a life jacket and waving his arms. The crewmembers reacted quickly and were able to throw heaving lines to the person, hoisting him up out of the water and safely onto their ship. The Coast Guard Station Sheboygan's rescue boat arrived on-scene, along with the a Ozaukee County Marine boat, to transport the boater off of the "Joseph L. Block" to the Port Washington Municipal Marina to be evaluated by emergency medical services. The 28-foot vessel was towed by the Ozaukee County Sheriff's crew towards the municipal marina until the flooding outpaced the dewatering pump. Station Sheboygan's crew responded to the scene to supply an additional pump when it was determined the sinking craft had become unstable. The crew evacuated the sheriff's deputy who was on board and the vessel sank immediately after the tow was released approximately eight nautical miles east of the Port Washington pier heads in more than 350 feet of water. The Station Sheboygan crew recovered several items that had floated free of the vessel, but reported no visible pollution.

Fishing vessels saved four castaways
The crews aboard the "Oceana Neptune" and "Oceana Viking" have been commended for going to the rescue of the crew of the 40-ft-m/v "De Bona" which issued a mayday on Aug 17, 2015, at 02.15 a.m. The "De Bona", sailing from Gansbaai to Lamberts Bay, reportedg to be sinking 6,43 miles North West of Cape Point and 3,76 miles offshore of Bellows Rock, with a crew of four onboard. They had departed Gansbaai on Aug 16 at 8 p.m., and on rounding Cape Point in rough sea conditions in a gusting 38 knot South Easterly wind and a confused sea swell of over 4 meters, at 1.45 a.m. the vessel listed to one side with water in a diesel tank. At 02.15 a.m. they broadcast a Mayday distress call confirming their coordinates and confirming that they were preparing to abandon ship. It was suspected that they may have developed a crack in the diesel tank. The crew had no time to retrieve their life jackets and abandoned the vessel into their life raft climbing off the nose of their vessel which completely sunk shortly after they abandoned their vessel into their life raft. The "Oceana Neptune" and "Oceana Viking" which had been 35 miles off Sea Point at the time, had heard the Mayday distress call on their VHF radio and queried to Telkom Maritime Radio Services if anyone had acknowledged the Mayday distress call. The vessel "Harvest Saldanha" was believed to be two hours from the scene and three ships were standing by in the area. The skippers of the "Oceana Neptune" and "Oceana Viking" who were 27 nautical miles off Sea Point, confirmed that they were diverting to make their way towards the scene. The NSRI Simonstown were alerted and launched the lifeboat "Spirit of Safmarine III". The NSRI Hout Bay responded with the "Nadine Gordimer" and "Albie Matthews". At 04.35 a.m. the "Oceana Neptune" and "Oceana Viking" confirmed that they were in the general area and could see the light of what they believed to be the life raft wich was being blown rapidly across the ocean in the gusting 38 knot winds. The castaways in the life raft were requested by Telkom Maritime Radio Services to deploy a red distress flare. Once deployed, it confirmed to the "Oceana Neptune" and "Oceana Viking" to be the life raft. On reaching the raft they were at first not comfortable to pick up the casualty crew out of the life raft in the rough seas and stood by at the life raft and confirmed that all four crew were not injured despite being cold and wet. The life raft was 5.99 miles North West of the sunken vessel, having being blown that distance away in the gusting winds- With the nearest sea rescue vessel at that stage still eight miles away the "Oceana Viking" confirmed that they and the "Oceana Viking" had formed a lee at the life-raft to shelter the life-raft from the wind and that they now felt comfortable to rescue the crew out of the life-raft. At 05.34 a.m. the castaways were successfully rescued and NSRI was contacted with the good news that all crew members were safe aboard the "Oceana Neptune". They were dried, provided warm clothing by his crew and not injured. The life-raft was recovered. The men were taken into Hout Bay harbour aboard the "Oceana Neptune". The South African Maritime Safety Authority started investigating the sinking of the "De Bona".

Maritime Tribunal Rejects Italy’s Plea for Marines’ Release
HAMBURG, Aug 24 (Reuters) – An international maritime tribunal on Monday rejected Italy’s request that India provisionally release two marines accused of killing two Indian fishermen, a setback for the Italian government after a three-year legal battle. However the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea in Hamburg also ordered India to suspend legal action against the two Italians, saying an international arbitration hearing to be held in The Hague must rule on the dispute. Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone were part of a military team on anti-pirate duty protecting an Italian oil tanker in 2012, when, they say, they mistook a fishing boat for a pirate vessel and fired warning shots. Two fishermen died. Girone is being held in the Italian Embassy in New Delhi, forbidden by the Indian authorities from leaving the country. However, Latorre is in Italy after India allowed him to return home temporarily for medical treatment. Rome objects to holding a trial in India, arguing that the case should be taken to arbitration under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and that the incident happened in international waters where national laws do not apply. gcaptain.com/enri...

China to fund Mongla port modernisation
A Chinese state-owned company has agreed to fund and help implement a big project of Tk 20 billion aiming to modernise and expand facilities at Mongla port, officials said. In this connection, the Mongla Port Authority (MPA) and China National Complete Engineering Corporation (CNCEC) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) last week, they said. The chairman said the port, which was built in the 1950s, is not properly designed for handling containers. It has five old jetties for handling bulk and general cargoes. He said construction of two jetties with local-foreign consortium will start soon under public-private partnership to substantially enhance its container-handling capacity. A separate container terminal will also be built to handle the load of containers smoothly. Under the mega project, a container terminal will be built at a cost of Tk 7.44 billion, construction of a container delivery yard will cost Tk 3.190 billion, and a multi-storage car-parking yard will cost Tk 7.280 billion, among others.

Grindrod pushes ahead with Richards Bay expansion
Grindrod would complete the Phase 1 expansion of the Richards Bay Terminal (RBT) by the first quarter of 2016 at a cost of R125m according to CEO Alan Olivier presenting the group’s interim results for the six months to end-June in Sandton today. The next phase will be to take it to 8mt/year which would be at relatively low cost. To go to 20mt/year means heavy capital expenditure and you would need very strong support for the throughput to get there which is not available today. “ Source: MiningMX
