 Star Princess  (Passagierschiff)
vor 11 Std von Timsen

Medevac off Ensenada
The U.S. Coast Guard rescued a woman in distress from the "Star Princess" 86 miles southwest of San Diego in the morning of Feb 20, 2017. The 73-year-old woman had been experiencing persistent severe abdominal pain since Feb 19 at about 5:15 p.m. A Coast Guard flight surgeon recommended she be medically evacuated from the cruise ship that was en route to Ensenada, so she could seek emergency medical care on land. Since the ship was more than 400 miles off the coast of San Diego, a rendezvous point was determined and the MH-60T Jayhawk helicopter crew was read to launch at 6:00 a.m. The rescued woman was transported to the hospital in stable condition.

 MT Jazi  (Tanker)
vor 14 Std von Timsen

Tanker detained for failing DPR authorisation
The Nigerian Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has arrested athe "Jazi" being loaded with 11500 tons petrol at the Nakam Jetty, Kirikiri, Lagos. The vessel was intercepted on Feb 11, 2017, while discharging at the jetty. The vessel did not have DPR authorisation to deliver products at the depot. The vessel was taken under the custody of the Nigerian Navy for more investigations. The DPR has no record of any product importation by Nakam. The agency subsequently drew samples from the tanks at the facility for laboratory analyses. The product failed all the basic parameters, especially in regards to lour, flashpoint and specific gravity and did not meet the standard specifications of any white product. The depot has been sealed by the agency since Feb 12.

 Polarstern  (Sonstiges Schiff)
vor 14 Std von Timsen

Research vessel to drift across the North Pole
The "Polarstern" is going to be purposely stuck in ice for climate studies. The vessel will embark on its 1,550-mile trip sometime in 2019, at which point it will sail into Arctic sea ice, allowing itself to become trapped in the ice and then drifting with it across the North Pole. The frigid adventure, which is said to be the biggest Arctic research project ever, will give a new and absolutely fascinating insight into the climate system under leadearship of the MOSAiC project. As the "Polarstern" floats along in "sea-ice Lagrangian mode," scientists from several dozen research entities will gather data on the local waters and atmosphere, all of which will be analyzed to make more sense of the major climate changes going on at the top of the world (January's measurement of Arctic sea ice was said to be the lowest ever recorded). It is the only way to do a study at the North Pole during the winter, as thick ice during that time of year is impossible to break through, and it's too dangerous and unwieldy to head onto the ice in snowmobiles with all of the necessary gear. It will be freezing and completely dark around the clock during the winter months.

Barge threatened to sink in Düsseldorf after flooding
The "Mabrena", 2397 ts (EU-No.: 6000101), being loaded with 1700 tons gravel, suffered water ingress enroute to Koblenz near the port of Düsseldorf-Reisholz at Rhine km 722,5 in the early evening of Feb 19, 2017. The water floated into generator room from two ballast tanks. The fire rescue attended with the two fire boats from Neuss and Chempark Uerdingen, fire engines and divers. They started removing the water several dewatering pumps after the flooded generator on board had failed so the ship's own pumps could not be activated. The water was removed with a capacity of five tons per hour. 2,5 hours later the situation was under control, five hours after the initial alarm most of the forces could be demobilized. The fire boat from Düsseldorf remaine on site until Feb 20 when experts continued to try to locate the source of the water ingress. In the run of the day the ship could be stabilized. Next the cargo was to be unloaded with cranes before the ship was to be towed to a yard for repairs.

Fire brigade withdrawn after blazing trawler started to list
Styrofoam caught fire on the "Geum Jeong No. 101" which was moored at the repair quay in Cape Town Harbour on Feb 18 at 1.20 a.m. prompting the City of Cape Town Fire Department to race to the rscene, joined by Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) crews. Efforts to extinguish the fire were abandoned after the ship started to list to port side due to accumulating fire water which made it unsafe for firefighters to continue putting out the blaze. A naval architect was deployed to assess the situation and determine the stability of the vessel. Although the fire had spread to the back of the vessel‚ it was said to be under control. Materials such as cardboard and plastic onboard the vessel were fueling the blaze. The City of Cape Town Fire Services were rendering boundary cooling from the quay side and a TNPA tug from the waterside. Oil booms were kept ready.

Vessel detained after being towed to Vigo
The Maritime Captaincy had detained the "Alsterstern" in Vigo until inumerous deficiencies detected on board and posing a danger to the safety of the ship's navigation and safety of future hydrocarbon cargo operations as well as for the marine environment or its crew on board have been rectified. The tanker had been towed to port on Feb 2, where engine repairs were carried out after the ship had gone adrift 70 miles west of Ons. But aninspection carried out by technicians of the Maritime Captaincy of Vigo has detected numerous security deficiencies last week. The ship was unloaded and free of toxic or dangerous gases. The captain, Daniel Blanchard from Canada, was confident that the technical deficiencies would be remedied soon, but the repairs of faults discovered by the MOU inspectors were expected to keep him at least one more week at the Areal pier.

58 injured as ship collides with barge
2Go passenger ferry with 90 passengers meets accident as it approaches Cebu City port - CEBU CITY—At least 58 ship passengers were injured when their vessel collided with a barge on the Mactan Channel past 10 p.m. last night. The vessel, MV St. Braquiel owned by the shipping firm 2Go, crashed into a barge carrying empty cases and bottles of beer and was being towed to port. St. Braquiel was bound for this city from Ormoc City in Leyte province. First aid responders were sent to Mactan’s Pier 4 to provide immediate treatment to the wounded passengers. The ferry was carrying 90 passengers and 11 crewmen when it collided with the barge. A passenger, Fredamae Bereso, recalled watching a Korean drama on board the business class section of St. Braquiel while waiting for the vessel to dock at Pier 4 here around 10 p.m. on Saturday. She was jolted by a loud thud while the vessel was approaching the first Mandaue-Mactan Bridge on the Mactan Channel, which separates Cebu from Mactan Island. Read more: newsinfo.inquirer...

It was not immediately clear what caused the crane to collapse on the cargo ship at the Ashdod port a little after 6 p.m. Sunday evening. Emergency crews were rushed to the scene, but no workers were hurt. An investigation was launched into the incident. The Ashdod facility, south of Tel Aviv, is one of two major ports on Israel’s Mediterranean coast, servicing some dozen ships at any given time. www.timesofisrael...

Dignity Operation seizes foreign car carrier en route to Misrata
A boat of Khalifa Haftar-led forces intercepted a commercial ship sailing on the sea from South Korea and heading to Misrata port. Haftar’s forces led the seized ship Morning Compass with 12 Filipino sailors to Ras Al-Hilal port in east Libya. According to reliable eastern sources, the ship is owned by EUKOR Car Carriers Inc. and it has been shipping over 5000 cars to Misrata before Haftar-led forces’ interception. The Libyan News Agency (LANA) of Al-Thanni-chaired eastern government reported the leader of the interception operation as saying that the ship did not take heed of the calls of their patrols, adding that it was sailing in a no-entry military zone. “We sent a boat to stop the ship and then the ship was tugged into Ras Al-Hilal port to be scoured by the navy personnel.” Eastern LANA said.

Melbourne's Victoria International Container Terminal’s first vessel puts handling to test
Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) will break its duck next Sunday, when one of the biggest containerships ever seen in Melbourne calls at its Webb Dock terminal. The E.R. Long Beach, controlled by Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and with a capacity of 7,455 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) of containers, will trouble traditional Yarra River berths at Swanson Dock. The advent of such ships has been a point of landside concern, mostly due to peaks and troughs in terminal and port approaches congestion, but haulage firms and their drivers also have hurdles, including Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC) accreditation. "Export container receivals for the vessel commence in earnest from Monday, 20th February," Container Transport Alliance Australia (CTAA) director Neil Chambers says. "This has necessitated container transport operators registering with VICT through 1-Stop to use the Vehicle Booking System (VBS), and drivers completing their on-line MSIC inductions – again through 1-Stop – before they can access the Terminal." https://www.fullyloaded.c...

Case of detained yacht at trial on Feb 21
A guard was placed aboard the "A" to ensure the ship remained in Gibraltar where she was detained due to unpaid invoices totaling € 15.29 million. This money should have been handed over when the yacht was delivered to representants of the owner on Feb 5 in Kiel, the day when the ship left the German Naval Yard which is part of the Nobiskrug Group. The shipyard was to receive 9.8 million Euros, two invoices of 2.9 and 2.6 million Euros are still open from suppliers. Since no money was received by the parent company of the German Naval Yards, the Nobiskrug Group until Feb 5, the shipyard commissioned the renowned law firm Triay Stagnetto Neish in Gibraltar to take legal action. The attorneys reached an arrest against the registered owner of the vessel, the Valla Yachts Ltd., on the Bermudas, at the Supreme Court on Feb 15. The company operates the ship on behalf of the Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. The yacht was moored at an anchor place in the territory of the "Admirality Marshals" on Feb 16. The bay is in the jurisdiction of the justice of Gibraltar. The island is not only favorable for fuel purchases, but is also one of the first addresses for sales, seizures and arrivals of ships of all kinds. The administration of the port of Gibraltar promotes international with the fast and efficient justice: "We have a very good Admirality Marshal, who has been in the industry for many years - so we can get the best possible price for the ship." The seizure procedure of the shipyard was made easier by the fact that the owner of the "Sailing Yacht A" transferred the ship from the German register to the register of the Bermuda Islands before the departure from Kiel. The island group, like Gibraltar, is a British overseas area, which clarifies many formalities more quickly and ships can easier be arrested. On Feb 21 a trial will take place in Gibraltar. A spokesman of the owner dismissed all allegations and said to be surprised by the yard's approach. Report with photos: www.sailingscuttl...

188 safe after fire aboard ferry off Palermo
On Feb 19, 2017, at 6 a.m. a fire broke out in the engine room of the "SNAV Toscana" while the ferry which had come from Naples was one mile off the port of Palermo. No injuries were reported among the 113 passengers and 75 crew members. Firefighters intervened immediately with the assistance of the port authority and the police after the master had maneuvered his ship into port. While the captain raised the alarm, the fire crew on board went into action and the crew members were acting according to the emergency plan. The passengers were quickly assembled and taken to collection points established by the evacuation plan, away from the engine room. There was no panic as the staff reacted quickly and supported the passengers well and gave directions. Smoke was visible and burning diesel could be smelled. A few tense moment came when the ship docked at the pier Saint Lucia. The passengers were waiting to get off at once, and instead had to remain on board. The door was not opened immediately because the staff, along with the fire department, feared that the fire which was so far under control could be fed by oxygene when opening the gates. The evacuation then was postponed for one hour, during which the passengers were always been assisted. Meanwhile, the firefighters completed the extinguishing and cooling operations of the engine room and remained on site for a while to monitor the situation and avoid that the fire reignited. Technicians went on board in order to determine th ecause of the fire. The prosecutor of Palermo was waiting on the fire report to assess whether to open an investigation.

Auckland’s busiest ever cruise ship week
Auckland’s busiest ever cruise ship week includes a record four ships in port in one day Auckland has enjoyed its busiest-ever week for cruise ship arrivals, including having four cruise ships docked on the same day for the first time ever on Saturday, 18 February. Since Monday, 12 February, Auckland has had at least one cruise ship in port every day, with two or three ships docked for the day or longer for the majority of the week - 11 different cruise ships have visited in total. Two of the visiting ships in port on Saturday, the Seabourn Encore and the Norwegian Star, are on their first voyages to Auckland. A third ship, The World, which has been in port since Friday, is the largest private residential ship in the world. It is on its way to Asia and across the Pacific to the North American west coast and Alaska. The ship’s annual journey is decided by its 165 residents and captain. The fourth ship in port, L’Austral, is a mega-yacht with 132 cabins which travels the world, including exploring sub Antarctic islands such as Macquarie, Campbell and the Antipodes. The four ships brought a total of 3,550 passengers to Auckland and came from Australia, North America, and Europe. Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) Chief Executive Brett O’Riley says cruise ships are a valuable contributor to Auckland’s booming visitor economy. "According to forecasts from Cruise New Zealand, Auckland will welcome a total of 182,852 passengers, and 66,400 crew this season, contributing an estimated $204 million to the region. "The visitor economy is now worth $7.4 billion to Auckland, and the cruise industry, which is forecast to grow to $470 million in 2030, plays an integral role in fuelling future growth in this valuable sector. www.voxy.co.nz/bu...

It's a huge vessel and it was like winching from a town, the spokesman said. home.nzcity.co.nz...

Tasmanian exporters to benefit from new Bass Strait shipping service
TASMANIAN exporters have never had it better, with three of the world’s largest shipping lines soon to be competing for the local trade, says Tasmanian Logistics Committee chairman Brett Charlton. The world’s largest shipping line, Maersk, will this month include Bell Bay in its new weekly trans-Tasman shipping service, which will enable goods to be taken to Melbourne or Sydney for global connections. Mr Charlton said Maersk would join MSC, the world’s second-largest container carrier, which began calling into Bell Bay fortnightly, as part of its trans-Tasman service, two years ago and has announced plans to expand calls to twice weekly. He said GMA CGM, the world’s third-largest global shipping giant, was competing for Tasmanian cargoes in partnership with Toll, operator of an overnight Burnie-Melbourne service. “We also have extra capacity with the new SeaRoad ship,’’ he said. www.ntnews.com.au...

Fincantieri's Ancona shipyard lays keel of "Viking Spirit"
The keel laying ceremony for “Viking Spirit”, the fifth of six cruise ships Viking Ocean Cruises has ordered from Fincantieri, took place today at the shipyard in Ancona, the shipbuilding group said in a media release. The first building block of the ship, about 11 meters long, 28.8 wide and weighing about 280 tons, is part of the central section of “Viking Spirit”, due to delivery in 2018. “Viking Spirit”, as its sister ships, will be placed in the small cruise ship segment. In fact, with a gross tonnage of about 47,800 tons, it will have 473 cabins with accommodation for 946 passengers, with a total capacity of over 1,400 people, including the crew.

Trawler adrift in stormy seas
On Feb 16, 2017, the "Shkval" suffered engine failure in Barents Sea and was in immediate danger. The vessel with nine crew on board was trawling in the eastern part of the Barents Sea, when the engine failed, and the ship remained without propulsion power amidst the strong winds and heavy seas. The crew radioed a distress signal to the local authorities and requested assistance. The tug" Murmanryba" was deployed at 10 p.m. in order to tow the vessel to sheltered waters at Murmansk and expected on scene at midnight. The weather was moderate with winds speed up to 17 m/s, but the forecasts were worsening to severe storm. The ship was towed into the port of Murmansk on Feb 18 at 11.40 a.m.

 Rio Tamara  (Frachtschiff)
vor 2 Tagen von Timsen

Bulkcarrier stuck in ice
Until the evening of Feb 17, 2017, the "Rio Tamara" that was to deliver a large cargo to Rio Tinto was caught in ice on the Saguenay River for more than a day, while three of the province's icebreakers were out of service. The ship was stuck at Eternité Bay on the Saguenay Riverin the afternoon of Feb 16. The situation had not changed since, and the company had already seriously gauged in its emergency inventory in the absence of the valuable cargo. Bauxite is the ore that is the basis of aluminum production. The icebreaker "Louis S. St-Laurent" was recently dry-docked at the Davie shipyard in Lévis for a few months. Two other icebreakers in the province, the "Martha L. Black" and "Des Groseillers", were not operational due to mechanical problems. The "Earl Gray" was due to arrive early in the morning of Feb 18 after a stopover in Cacouna. If the icebreaker proved incapable of carrying out the task, Rio Tinto might have to temporarily slow down its activities, causing obvious economic losses. The ship was finally able to reach its destination on Feb 18 after spending nearly 48 hours stuck in the Saguenay ice. French report with photo: www.journaldemont...

A arrested in Gibraltar
Just hours after its arrival in Gibraltar for a bunker stop before sailing on to Cartagena, lawyers for superyacht builder Nobiskrug filed a claim in the Supreme Court against the vessel’s “owners/charterers/operators” of the "A" for breach of contract. According to court documents, Nobiskrug said the final €9.8m payment of a shipbuilding contract between the yard and Valla Yachts Limited, the vessel’s Bermuda-based registered owner, was due on Jan 27 but has not been paid. Nobiskrug is also claiming sums of €2.6m and €2.9m which, according to the court documents, were already the subject of a dispute between the yard and Valla Yachts over liability for sub-contractor invoices and disputed variation orders during the building process. The total sum sought by Nobiskrug amounts to €15,298,297.05 [£12,748,581] plus interest, according to the claim filed by Triay Stagnetto Neish, the Gibraltar law firm acting for the yard.

Louise Jane saved skipper of sinking vessel
On Feb 17, 2017, the "Louise Jane" assisted the British f/v f/v "Out of the Blue" which had submitted a mayday at approximately 11:25 a.m. to the Dover Maritime Rescue Coordination Center (MRCC) which accordingly informed the CROSS Gris-Nez. The vessel had suffered severe water ingress nine nautical miles from Cape Gris-Nez with one person on board. The "Louise Jane", whiich was nearby, came to assist the vessel by pumping the water out before attempting a tow. The English skipper of the "Out of the Blue" was then transferred to the "Louise Jane". A Dauphin helicopter of the French Navy, stationed at Le Touquet, diverted from his training flight to monitor the operation and found that theskipper was safe. No further assistance was requested. At 11:53 a.m., despite the assistance, the "Out of the Blue" eventually sank. Its owner, in shock, was then brought back to the port of Dover by the "Louise Jane", where he was taken in charge at 12:30 p.m. by the English Coastguard. At the same time, an Urgent NavigationAdvisory (AVURNAV) was issued to inform sea users of the position of the sinking of the vessel. The ship has sunk by about 50 meters and did not represent a danger to navigation.

 Sea Lady  (Frachtschiff)

Sea Lady refloated and docked
The "Sea Lady" was refloated on Feb 16 and taken to a berth in the port of Skikda for offloading the cargo of 42000 tons corn. Excessive speed of the ship was said to be the cause of the grounding, and as it it tended to veer to starboard, it diverted to low draft docks instead of going directly to its berth no 13. The first towing operation that was conducted in the night of Feb 15 failed because of the low tide. The next attept was undertaken by six tugs of 2500 and 6500 hp in the morning of Feb 17, requiring a list of four degrees to allow the ship to slip off the shallow and get to the wharf.

Containership Fire Extinguished in South Africa
The joint effort undertaken by a Disaster Management team at the Port of Ngqura has helped to avert a potential maritime disaster and ultimately saved the container vessel APL Austria, which caught fire last weekend. Transnet National Ports Authority, Transnet Port Terminals, the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Fire Department, South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA), South African Police Services (SAPS), National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) and a stevedoring company, worked together to battle the blaze, and the fire was eventually extinguished on Wednesday, February 15. Ngqura Port Manager, Mpumi Dweba-Kwetana, said the port had lost only half a day of operation on Monday, February 13 before container offloading resumed. “It took just two and a half days to extinguish this dangerous blaze. Credit must be given to the disaster management role players for working together seamlessly. Our waterside and landside employees at the port also demonstrated that – despite being a relatively young harbour – Ngqura is well equipped to manage such a crisis,” she said. “From a TNPA perspective, our efforts were led by the Harbor Master and supported by a 29-strong team including vessel traffic services (VTS) officers, a marine safety specialist, seven crew members per tug, nine berthing crew members, a pilot boat crew of six and four TNPA fire fighters.” “It was also a great asset to have available our powerful tugs equipped with a 70 ton bollard pull. They were instrumental as we docked the vessel, offered boundary cooling to containers at anchorage and blanket sprayed the ship to control the fire,” she added. The NSRI assisted to remove four nonessential crew members from the vessel, one of whom was injured and treated by the Eastern Cape Department of Health. No further injuries or deaths occurred. www.marinelink.co...

Warring Factions in Yemen Fight Over Strategic Port
Yemeni government troops and Houthi rebels have been engaged in fierce battles in and around a coastal town seen as a major smuggling point for arms used to supply rebels. In recent days, both sides have won and lost territory near the port of Mokha in what analysts and Yemen officials see as a make-or-break fight to sever a rebel supply line. Saudi and U.S.-backed government forces are convinced that Houthis rely on Iranian smuggled arms coming through maritime ports along the western shores of Yemen. “By taking Mokha, we deprive Houthis from the source where 40 to 50 percent of their smuggled arms are coming from,” Ahmed Saif Al Yafei, a Yemeni army commander, told VOA. www.voanews.com/a...

Massive Cranes Will Be Loaded on a Ship in Cork Harbour Bound For Puerto Rico
Three cranes, each weighing more than 1,000 tonnes and 85 metres high will be loaded on to a massive ship next week in Cork Harbour bound for Puerto Rico. It will be an amazing feat of engineering and an equally spectacular sight at the Port of Cork to see the massive cargo depart Roches Point. The cranes have been asembled from kit form having first been shipped by sea from Fenit in County Kerry to the Doyle Shipping Group Terminal at Rushbrooke in Cork Harbour. 60 employees from the Liebherr crane plant in Kerry have been constructing the massive cranes prior to their transatlantic voyage. The specially adapted ship, The Albatross from Holland, arrived yesterday into the Port of Cork and is moored at Ringaskiddy awaiting its giant cargo. Known as a 'heavy lift' vessel, the Albatross is 264.45 metres long and 42.54 metres wide, the ship has a maximum speed of 9.5 knots. afloat.ie/port-ne...

A towing rope fouled the propeller of the "Captain Joy" in the port of Burgas on Jan 15, 2017. The vessel was under tow to leave the port, but the released ропе was not retracted fast enough and wrapped around the propeller. The crew reacted immediately and stopped the engine, preventing more sufficient damages to the propulsion system, but the line convolved at the propeller. The ship was towed to the anchorage off Burgas for an underwater inspection by divers, who then removed the rope. The local authorities ordered a survey and inspection of the vessel before it was released around midnight and headed to Varna, arriving there at the Devnja berth at 9.50 p.m. the same day.

UECC’s New ECO Class Vessels to Operate a Regular Service to PLP
Petrolesport ro-ro terminal (a Global Ports facility) has finished unloading the first vessel of a new ecological class series owned by United European Car Carriers (UECC), a leading ro-ro line operator. The terminal successfully handled three vessels carrying 1,840 cars and 370 heavy ro-ro vehicles. The cars arrived to PLP on a regular service Saint Petersburg – Uusikaupunki – Bremerhafen – Southampton – Zeebrugge – Malmoe – Hanko – Saint Petersburg. After a successful completion of a trial unloading, the service operates two vessels of the same serries – M/V Auto Eco and M/V Auto Energy. The vessels call at Petrolesport weekly on Saturdays. M/V Auto Eco and M/V Auto Energy are the biggest dual fuel car and truck carriers in the world. They can operate on both fuel oil and liquefied natural gas (LNG). LNG technology substantially reduces fuel consumption and decreases CO2 and NOx emissions, as well as almost eliminating Sulphur Oxide and particulate matter emissions. The new technology is fully compliant with strict environmental requirements applied in the Baltic Sea region. www.hellenicshipp...

HHLA Slightly Exceeds Forecast Operating Result (EBIT)
Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) has slightly exceeded the forecast operating result (EBIT) for the 2016 financial year. Compared to the same period in the previous year, the company reported strong volume growth in the Container segment in the second half of the year. This could compensate for the modest business performance during the first six months of 2016. According to preliminary unaudited figures, HHLA recorded Group revenue of approximately € 1.2 billion (previous year: € 1.1 billion) and a Group operating result (EBIT) of approximately € 163 million (previous year: € 157 million). While revenue rose slightly year-on-year by approximately 3 percent, EBIT saw moderate growth of approximately 5 percent. Source: HHLA

 Victoria  (Frachtschiff)

Breached ship underway to Fayard
In the morning the "Victoria" was taken in tow by the tugs "Svitzer Mars" and "Svitzer Trym" bound to the Fayard-shipyard in the Odense Fjord, Funen, on Feb 17. The Danish defense was monitoring the situation closely. The defense believed that the Döhle company's salvage plan was reasonable and judicious. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Danish Maritime Authority have also been consulted, so the journey towards Fayard could begin at low speed. While the ship was being towed, the Defence environment ships followed close behind, ready to intervene if problems occurred along the way. While the grounding has breached several fuel tanks it seemed that the environmental impact was not as serious as first feared thanks to the cold water. The type of oil that was in the tanks solidified at a temperature of about six degrees Celsius with water temperature being at about two degrees. The convoy arrived at Munkebo at 2 p.m. Danish report with video: https://maritimedanmark.dk/?Id=33887

 Samson Mariner  (Schleppendes Schiff)
vor 3 Tagen von Timsen

Tug ran aground and was breached
The Coast Guard Station Ketchikan sent a boat crew and the Marine Safety Detachment Ketchikan pollution team responded to the "Samson Mariner" which ran aground while towing the barge "Saint Elias" in the vicinity of north Tongass Narrows in Rosa Reef, Alaska, in the evening of Feb 15, 2017. The Coast Guard Juneau received notification via VHF-FM radio that the tug had suffered a minor breach in the hull. The South East Petroleum Response Organization (SEAPRO) responded on scene and deployed containment boom around the tug which had 30,000 gallons of fuel on board, while the barge was carrying 40,000 gallons of diesel. Unified Command was formed with ADEC, USCG, and Samson Tug & Barge Inc. to manage the incident response. Approximately 1,100 gallons of diesel spilled from the tug prior to being patched by Alaska Commercial Divers Inc. which had been deployed to the scene at 10 p.m. during the night. Three Southeast Alaska Petroleum Response Organization tugs took the barge to Ward Cove where it was anchored and assessed for damage. The Coast Guard, in partnership with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Southeast Alaska Petroleum Response Organization, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and Alaska Commercial Divers continued their response to the tug which meanwhile has been refloated and was anchored in Ward Cove alongside the barge. Both vessels were encircled with 1,000 feet of containment boom by SEAPRO. The NOAA Scientific Support Coordinator made a fate and effects and trajectory assessment. A Coast Guard Air Station Sitka MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew conducted an overflight win the Tongass Narrows with Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment Ketchikan personnel aboard to determine the extent of any possible sheen or environmental impacts. Tongass Narrows is located northwest of Ketchikan and is part of Southeast Alaska’s sheltered Inside Passage. As of 11:00 a.m. a petroleum sheen extended approximately three miles beginning at the incident location to the north end of Pennock Island. The sheen was approximately 200 yards wide at the leading edge. SEAPRO has been tasked with fuel containment and recovery using boom and absorbent pads. The sheen was expected to break up within the next 12 to 24 hours, with scattered sheens potentially still visible under the low wind conditions forecast. Although not expected to impact sensitive areas or wildlife, the Coast Guard routinely collaborated with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to mitigate these risks. SEAPRO continued to assess the petroleum sheen in the Tongass Narrows to determine the feasibility of recovery and to monitor the "Samson Mariner" and the "Saint Elias" in Ward Cove and maintain the containment boom. The Unified Command continued to manage the incident. Current weather on scene was 14 mile per hour winds and calm seas. The tug and barge were due to arrive in Valdez, on Feb 19. It was unclear at this point if the schedule has changed. Report and photos: www.akbizmag.com/... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C41RklGUYAArf_x.jpg

Chabahar Port in Iran to open in a month, says Afghan consul general
The strategic port of Chabahar in Iran which is being developed to build a transport-and-trade corridor through Afghanistan giving India an access to global markets is expected to be opened in a month’s time, said Afghanistan Consul General Mohammad Aman Amin. “The port is likely to open in a month’s time and it will provide impetus to the trade between India and Afghanistan,” said Amin on Monday. The construction of this port assumes significance as it will allow bypassing the route through Pakistan for accessing markets in Europe and Central Asia and also save on time and cost of doing business. India in May, 2016 signed the historic deal with Iran and Afghanistan. www.hellenicshipp...

Spanish dock workers call off planned strike
Spanish dock workers on Wednesday called off a planned three-day strike next week after the government said it would delay plans to reform the sector and instead open talks with the unions. The standstill was due to take place every other hour on Feb. 20, 22 and 24 at dozens of Spanish ports which employ more than 6,000 stevedores and handle an estimated 500 million tonnes of merchandise a year. The strike was called after the Spanish government announced plans to overhaul the way ports are managed and allow companies to hire their own personnel instead of unionized staff. Export chains in Spain, especially the car industry, would face a major disruption if a strike of three days or more was to be held. Source: Reuters

China to send another pilot container train to Riga in late February
This time, the pilot train will be unloaded at the port of Riga, and from there the containers will be shipped by ferry to Hamburg, Lusis said. “It is planned that the train will leave from the Chinese province of Hunan at the end of February and that in two weeks’ time the containers will be delivered to Hamburg through Riga. Also, container platforms are being delivered to Riga from the Chinese city of Yiwu. These cargos are not meant for Latvia, but they will undergo customs clearance in the Belarusian city of Brest before they are forwarded to the port of Riga. It is planned that in the future customs clearance for these cargos will be carried out in Riga so that they do not have to make the detour through Brest,” said Lusis. As reported, already last year an agreement was reached with China about the next delivery of container cargos to Riga, but due to holidays in China and Europe the pilot train’s departure was postponed to fully exclude possible delays along the way. Lusis told LETA at the beginning of this year that there is a plan to work out a special tariff for the cargos that are carried by train from China to Riga and then by ferry to Hamburg, Duisburg and other Western European ports. The first pilot train from China, arranged by LDz Logistika and China Railway in partnership with TransContainer, left for Latvia on October 21, 2016. The Yiwu-Zabaykalsk-Riga route is 11,066 kilometers long. The train arrived in Riga on November 5. Source: Baltic-Course

Antwerp Port: Deurganckdock around the clock
Trucks coming to load or unload containers in the Deurganck dock in the port of Antwerp will also be able to call at night as of 20 March. The container terminals MSC PSA European Terminal (MPET) and DP World Antwerp Gateway, both located in the Deurganck dock, are due to extend their opening hours so that fetching or delivering containers by truck can carry on around the clock on weekdays. With this measure the operators seek to spread the flow of trucks on their terminals more efficiently. Thanks to the extended working hours, quays 1700 (Antwerp Gateway) and 1742 (MPET) – the largest container terminals in the port of Antwerp – will be open non-stop from 0500 hours (Antwerp Gateway) and 0530 (MPET) on Monday morning to 0530 on Saturday morning.
