 Paradise  (Sportboot)
vor 8 Std von Timsen

Luxury yacht scrapped in sunken state
The workers of the company Arjona S.A. scrapped the sunken "Paradise" at Port de Andratx on March 23. Shovels crushed the boat until scarcely any remains were left. The technicians previously dismantled the ship's electrical installations. Operators installed containment barriers to prevent oil spills and leaks. The divers were able to retrieve a safe from the wreck and two jet skis that were stored in the garage. When the ship was built more than ten years ago, it cost about five million Euros. Before the storm sank it, it was valued at three million Euros. The remains of the ship were deposited in anti-pollution containers. On March 25 an operation will start to try to rescue the two engines out of the hull. The salvage has cost about 295,000 Euros so far. Spanish report with video: ultimahora.es/suc...

Two crew members who had been held hostage found adrift in boat
Two Malaysian crew members of the "Suodong 3" who had been held hostage by the Abu Sayyaf Group for eight months were found aboard a boat adrift off the southern Philippines on March 23, 2017. Tayudin Anjut, 45, and Abdurahim bin Sumas, 62, were abandoned by the Abu Sayyaf gunmen before dawn near their coastal forest hideout on the remote island of Pata. They were saved weak and in a sickly state and receiving treatment at a military hospital. A Philippine Navy patrol boat found the pair, eight months after they were abducted along with three other crewmen of a tugboat that was boarded by gunmen near the sea border between the two countries. Their recovery followed a Philippine military operation against the kidnappers on a nearby island early in February that left eight gunmen dead.

Ferry attacked by gunmen
The "super Shuttle Roro 9" was attacked by gunmen believed to be Aby Sayaf militants, on March 23, 2017, at 1220 a.m. in the Moro Gulf, about 19 miles southeast of Sibago island. Four crew members were kidnapped, among them the master and chief engineer. The ship was en route from Cebu to General Santos. As of 12.30 a.m. it changed course and headed for nearest port Zamboanga, proceeding at a reduced speed of some 3-4 knots.

 Sewol  (Passagierschiff)
vor 13 Std von Timsen

Salvage hit obstacle
The efforts to raise the "Sewol" may have hit a significant obstacle. The salvage crews have suspended operations to lift the wreck after finding that a vehicle ramp is unlocked and dangling from the ship’s left side. It would not be possible to load the ferry onto the "White Marlin" that is to carry it to port with the ramp hanging down. Divers were trying to cut off the ramp with welding equipment. It was vital to finish the job by Feb 24 morning so the crew would have enough time to load the ferry onto the vessel by midnight. Workers had initially planned to finish raising the ferry by the evening of March 23. At 5 p.m. the top of the ferry was 8.5 meters above the water’s surface at 5 p.m. In the morning the work was stopped temporarily when the ship began rubbing against pulleys and other equipment on the two barges hoisting it with cables. They resumed lifting the ferry after spending hours to better balance it. At 3 p.m. they resumed raising the wreck after he problem has reduced following operations by getting a better balance on the ferry. Report with photo: https://www.washingtonpos...

First ship of 2017 season arrives in Port of Green Bay
GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The start of spring brought with it the first ship of the season at the Port of Green Bay. The Michigan Great Lakes arrived at 11 a.m. Tuesday, according to port officials. It was to take ethanol from the U.S. Oil terminal to Montreal, Canada. “Last year, the first ship arrived March 22, so this season started just a day earlier than the 2016 season,” port director Dean Haen said in a news release. “The 2016 season officially ended on January 13, so it’s been a short break. It’s a good sign when the Port opens in March; it means that the demand for product from manufacturers is there. Those bouts of warm weather we had this winter were another contributing factor to the earlier start.” The beginning of the season also meant a prize was given away. Melanie Haedt of Suamico won the First Ship Contest by guessing closest to the time of the arrival of the first ship of the season. Haedt's guess of 1 p.m. March 21 was the closest of 150 entries. Her prize includes a $25 gift card to Titletown Brewing Company and a print by Sandford Photography. fox11online.com/n...

Near-collision between Halifax charter boat, cruise ship prompts safety equipment investment
A charter boat that nearly collided with a much larger cruise ship last summer in Halifax Harbour has prompted the vessel’s operator to make a significant safety investment. An Ambassatours tour boat had 39 passengers onboard when it came close to Royal Caribbean’s cruise ship Grandeur of the Seas, which was carrying 3,000 people. Ambassatours admits its captain should have taken a different course. “The two vessels came relatively close to each other,” said Dannis Campbell, Ambassatours CEO. “It was still in the vicinity of between 150 to 200 feet away from each other.” That was close enough for the cruise ship captain to report a close-quarters situation to Canadian authorities. The Nova Scotia Transportation and Safety Board is investigating. Its website states the incident took place in thick fog in the approaches to Halifax Harbour on the morning of June 29. While the investigation is still underway, Ambassatours says it “takes safety very seriously and wants to avoid a similar situation in the future.” Transportation and safety officials recommended investing in better navigational technology, and they've done that. atlantic.ctvnews....

New fruit shipping route links ASEAN and South China port
A ship loaded with fruit from ASEAN countries arrived at Fangchenggang Port Monday, marking a new shipping route for transporting fruit, local authorities said Wednesday. The shipping route from Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh to the port city of Fangchenggang in South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region is operated by four ships from China COSCO Shipping Corporation. Each ship can carry 1,100 standard containers with a load of 1,800 metric tons. Currently the service runs once a week, but it is expected to run two to three times a week by the end of 2017, according to sources with the Beibu Gulf port administration. Fangchenggang Port is a fruit import port in southern China. The new route will help boost fruit imports from ASEAN countries, while marketing Chinese farm produce and fruit to the ASEAN. www.chinadaily.co...

 Granuaile  (Frachtschiff)
vor 20 Std von Timsen

Wreckage of downed helicopter found
A ROV sent down from the "Granuaile" to film a specific area of seabed on March 23 has confirmed a crashed Coastguard helicpoter was lying about 60 meters off Blackrock island, off the coast of County Mayo. The Sikorsky S92 was believed to have hit the island before crashing into the sea. Captain Dara Fitzpatrick, aged 45, was the only one of the four crew members to have been recovered from the ocean so far. The other crew members, Captain Mark Duffy, Winchman Ciaran Smith and Winch Operator Paul Ormsby, remained missing since. The Dublin-based Rescue 116 helicopter is lying on the seabed, in about 40 meters of water, on the eastern side of the island. The remotely-operated vehicle was not able to confirm if the three missing crew were inside the wreckage. Operations were continuing. The discovery was made after weather conditions eased sufficiently to deploy a submersible robot, attached by cables to the Irish Lights vessel, to film the seabed. The helicopter was lying in an area from where signals from the black box flight recorder were emitting. The "Granuaile" was using Holland I and Holland II ROVs from the Marine Institute and the Irish Naval ship "LÉ Eithne" was coordinating the recovery operation with the support of the Irish Coast Guard, gardai, the RNLI and fishermen with local knowledge of conditions. The forecast was for fair to moderate until the weekend with swells easing. The AAIU believed the tail of Rescue 116 hit rocks on the western end of the island, about 13 km off the Mayo coast as it returned from supporting a rescue mission to refuel at Blacksod. There was no indication of any danger moments before the Sikorsky S92 vanished, with the crew's final transmission: "Shortly landing at Blacksod."

Tug high and dry on Weiti River
The "York Syme" ran aground on the Weiti River just upriver from the Stillwater Boat Club on March 16, 2017, at 11. a.m. Due to unsuitable tides she won't be able to refloat until March 30. The high tide the day the boat stranded was 3,2 metres and then began dropping to below 3 meters. On March 30 will be the next 3,5 metre high tide. The "York Syme" had been undergoing maintenance at Stevensons yard further up the river and was heading back to Bayswater Marina. There were no issues over the stranding from Auckland Transport's perspective. The Transport Accident Investigation Commission investigated an incident when the vessel ran aground in the Gulf on Nov 13, 1997. Report with photos: www.stuff.co.nz/a...

 Caledonian Sky  (Passagierschiff)

Damage estimate of coral reef increased
The "Caledonian Sky" has damaged about 18,900 square metres of coral reef in Raja Ampat, one of the most biodiverse marine habitats on Earth and a favourite with intrepid travellers and divers due to its palm-fringed islands, coral and fish, increasing the estimate of the devastation caused when the vessel ran aground. The "Caledonian Sky" smashed into the reefs at low tide around Kri, one of hundreds of small islands in Raja Ampat, after taking tourists on a bird-watching expedition. The boat, which was carrying 102 passengers and 79 crew, was grounded on the reefs and only refloated later on a high tide. Numerous attempts to free it using a tug failed, causing further damage to the corals. An assessment led by a local university had estimated the damage from the March 4 accident at 13,500 square metres. But after a survey involving marine researchers, government and the insurers, authorities announced that 18,882 square metres of corals had been affected. The Indonesian government was still calculating the financial impact of the accident, and it would be announced early April. The company and the insurers are committed to paying compensation. The incident in West Papua province infuriated the government, who last week summoned the British ambassador to protest, while local residents believed it would impact the tourism industry and the livelihoods of fishermen. Noble Caledonia has apologised for the accident and they were working to reach a settlement with the government.

 Sewol  (Passagierschiff)
vor 20 Std von Timsen

Ferry emerged above the surfacce - White Marlin ready to dock wreck
Efforts to lift the "Sewol" started on March 22 at 10:00 a.m. following several hours of careful examination of the weather conditions because the sea had to be fairly calm. Waves had to be under one meter and the wind speed needs to be below 10 meters per second. At 3:30 p.m., the ferry was carefully test lifted one meter from the sea bottom, and salvage workers carried out balancing procedures before committing themselves to pulling the hull out of the water. Divers also checked the underwater situation to make certain that the operation went smoothly. All technical aspects and local weather conditions were reviewed at the time of lifting. The upper part of the hull emerged from the water before 4 a.m. on March between the two jack up barges, having been brought up from depth of 44 metres. The hull, coated in mud and sediment, was flanked by the winching barges. At around 3:45 a.m., the starboard side of the ferry was seen above water. Until 2 p.m. about six meters of the central part of the hull had surfaced above the water. Workers then halted the process for several hours after the ferry began rubbing against the pulleys and other equipment on the two barges that were raising it with cables. The problem has been reduced following operations to better balance on the ferry. The operation to hoist the upper part of the hull some 13 meters above sea level was expected to be finished by late afternoon at the earliest. Despite drizzle, salvors aimed to complete lifting the hull and dock it onto the semisubmersible vessel "White Marlin" (IMO: 9670224), which had sailed from Shanghai on March 15 towards Jindo, by March 24, as the neap tide was expected to end before the weekend, which would make it difficult to work in the strong current. Salvors have completed tying the hull to the salvage barges after it was lifted 24,4 meters off from the seabed in the morning. They will once again try to tie it when the ship is lifted 35 meters, if there were no complications by tonight. The ship was being raised at an average of 3 meters per hour. The Chinese salvage company has fitted 33 beams beneath the hull with 66 hydraulic jacks inching the ship up. The ferry would be raised as high as 13 metres above the surface of the sea and then moved onto a semi-submersible vessel which was positioned nearby. Once secured on its deck, it would then be taken to the nearby port Mokpo, but that could take up to 12 or 13 days. Only when the ferry has been brought to port, she will be inspected. When the ship sank on April 16, 2014, 304 of the 476 passengers, 304, mostly high school students, lost their lives. Nine are still unaccounted for. After the ferry safely has left the accident site, divers will search carefully for any remains left in the water and on sea floor. Underwater fences surrounding the area where the "Sewol" sank have been set up. Zhe Seoul government ksf decided to raise the ferry intact in order to protect any remains of people still missing from the tragic sinking and carry out a detailed investigation into the ship's sinking. The US$72 million project to recover the ship was being conducted by a Chinese consortium led by China's state-run Shanghai Salvage.

Four groups expected to bid for Thessaloniki Port on Friday, March 24
Four foreign investors are expected to bid for a majority stake in Greece’s Thessaloniki Port, on Friday, the offer deadline, the port’s top executive said on Wednesday. Phillipines-based International Container Terminal Services (ICTS), Dubai-based P&O Steam Navigation Company (DP World), Japan’s Mitsui & Co and German private equity Deutsche Invest Equity Partners had all completed due diligence, port Chairman Konstantinos Mellios told Reuters. The sale of a 67 percent stake in Greece’s second-largest port, which was launched in 2014, has been beset by delays and political resistance. “Those four are still interested as we speak, there is information that all four will submit binding bids on Friday,” Mellios said, adding that Deutsche Invest had teamed up with French container shipping company CMA CGM. Bids will be submitted by 1900 GMT to financial adviser Morgan Stanley and Greece’s privatisation agency would open the offers by April 7 at the latest, he said. Thessaloniki port workers walked off the job for three hours on Wednesday to protest against the sale but Mellios said it would not affect operations. Source: Reuters

ROV Comanche confirmed sonar picture showed wreck of El Fairell
On March 22 at 10.30 p.m. the ROV Comanche, the submersible robot guided by remote control from the "Clara Campoamor", has sent the first images of the "El Fairell" which was sunk three nautical miles from the port of Barcelona. The photographs taken by the device showed precisely the name of the wreck and were the definitive confirmation that the picture captured by the sonar shiwed in fact the fishing vessel. The mission of the ROV Comanche was actually to find out if the bodies of the missing two sailors were still inside the wreck. During the first inspection no trace of the two men was found. The ROV inspection was not terminated. If there was found evidence that the bodies were inside the ship, one could choose to drag the ship to shallower waters where it was possible to descend to the wreck with scuba divers to complete the recovery of the corpses.

Oldendorff Carriers Converts Bulk Carrier to Transloader
German shipowner and operator Oldendorff Carriers has decided to convert its bulk carrier Tete Oldendorff to a transloader. In February 2017, the 88,266 dwt bulker entered Chengxi Shipyard, part of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) in Jiangyin, China, where the conversion will be carried out. During the conversion, which is expected to be completed in summer 2017, the 2006-built Tete Oldendorff will be renamed Anna Oldendorff. Anna Oldendorff will replace E. Oldendorff and will work together with Johanna Oldendorff and two purpose built transloaders, Alfred Oldendorff and Antonie Oldendorff, lightering or unloading Capesize bulk carriers in the Arabian Gulf. The conversion process involves installing generators, three side mounted Liebherr MPG cranes on deck together with hoppers, conveyor belts and unloading booms. The superstructure will also be increased to accommodate an additional sixteen persons, the company said. The conversion will add about 2,500 million tons of new steel to the vessel, according to Oldendorff Carriers. Oldendorff Carriers has also signed a contract with Chengxi Shipyard to install side mounted cranes on the 75,053 dwt bulk carrier Trina Oldendorff. worldmaritimenews...

The ferry "Stena Saga", sailing between Frederikshavn and Oslo, came to assists the "Lis Katrine RI 192" which suddenly sank in the Skagerrak on March 22, 2017, at 3.30 a.m. The crew observed a flare in a position 9,5 nautical miles north of Skagen and immediately alerted the Defense Operations Center. Soon after the ferry found a liferaft with two fishermen inside and recovered them. They stated that their wooden ship had suffered a sudden water ingress. They only had time to put on immersion suits and fire off flares before they had to abandon ship. The Danish rescue center deployed an SAR helicopter of the Squadron 722 in Aalborg, another helicopter from Sweden, a lifeboat from Skagen, the frigate "Iver Huitfeldt" and another ferry. The two fishermen were later hoisted onto the helicopter and immediately checked and serviced by a doctor from the squadron. After the arrival at Aalborg their repatriation to Hvide Sande was arranged. The lifeboat patrolled the position where the "Lis Katrine" had sunkin a water depth of about 80 meters in the Skagerrak before being stood down.

Gate Terminal Makes Rotterdam the LNG Hub of Europe
Sometimes, it is easy to implement the sustainable alternative in the maritime industry. When it is time for a new antifouling on the hull of a vessel, it is easy to choose a non-toxic variant. Other sustainable transitions take more effort. Like LNG. This fuel, that makes marine propulsion more environmentally friendly, is promising. But it takes large investments in making or adjusting vessels to work on the fuel and also building an infrastructure that supports these LNG ships. The change can only be set in motion as the big boys pull in. Koninklijke Vopak and Nederlandse Gasunie are companies which believe in LNG as a maritime fuel for the future and are not afraid to invest in this development. They partnered to build Gate terminal at Maasvlakte 2 in Rotterdam. The four functions of the terminal are: receipt, storage, regasification, and supply. Gate terminal is an “open terminal” – it does not buy LNG but only provides services for those who deal with LNG. The main function is to feed the national grid that supplies households with natural gas on behalf of the terminal capacity users such as Uniper, OMV, Eneco, Shell and Dong Energy.

Crowley, which has served the Northeast market from Petty Island in Pennsauken, N.J., continuously since 1983, will begin service from Penn Terminals Jan. 1, 2018. With Crowley’s lease at Petty Island expiring at the end of this year, and the company transitioning to a lift-on/lift-off (Lo/Lo) operation in its Puerto Rico service, Hourihan said the time was right to make the move. Penn Terminals is strategically located on the Delaware River six miles south of Philadelphia and 11 miles north of Wilmington, Delaware. The terminal is convenient to Interstate 95 and I-476 and 20 minutes from the NJ Turnpike. On-dock rail service is provided by Conrail, CSX and Norfolk Southern. Crowley has served the Puerto Rico market since 1954, making it the longest serving Jones Act carrier in the trade. The company, with more than 250 Puerto Rico employees, offers more weekly sailings in the market than any other shipping line. en.portnews.ru/ne...

Port Bronka sees promising possibilities in containerization of dry bulk cargo
MSCC Bronka (Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex Bronka, Big Port St. Petersburg) sees promising possibilities in containerization of dry bulk cargo, IAA PortNews correspondent cites Aleksei Shukletsov, Executive Director of Fenix LLC (operator of MSCC Bronka), as saying at the conference “Port Infrastructure of Russia” being held in Moscow. According to him, cargo containerization is of special interest amid sanctions and geopolitical tension as it allows for prompt redirection of cargo flows to Russian terminals without construction of dedicated terminals from scratch. According to open sources, current level of cargo containerization in Russia is 5-7% while it it is as high as average 20% globally. In March 2017, MSCC Bronka started testing of an innovative dry bulk container. The container designed by YUNA LLC is being promoted by КОТТА Container under cooperation agreement with MSCC Bronka. en.portnews.ru/ne...

Hull lifted one meter
The South Korean government moved forward with the process of raising the "Sewol" from the bottom of the sea if mild weather conditions continued on March 22, meaning waves must be under 1 meter and wind speeds need to be below 10 meters per second. The efforts to lift the 145-meter-long, 6,825-ton ship began at 10:00 a.m. with two salvage barges and a semisubmersible ship, which will haul the ferry to the port of Mokpo. As of 6.45 p.m. GMT, a part of the Sewol's structure, which was believed to be its stabilizer, could be seen above the water. The hull was initially test lifted up one meter from the sea bottom. Once the ship floats safely, salvage workers will carry out balancing procedures first and move ahead to pull the hull out of the water, after examining other technical aspects and local weather conditions. Divers were currently checking the underwater situation. The actual lifting of the vessel was expected to take three days under the best weather conditions.

Lighthouse buoy tender to deploy ROV in search for missing Coastguard crew
Attempts were to be made by the "Granuaile" early on March 22 to deploy a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) in the continued search for three missing Irish Coast Guard air crew off north Mayo. The Marine Institute’s ROV was deployed for the first time briefly in the night of March 21 off Blackrock island – the last known position of Rescue 116, the Dublin-based Sikorsky S-92 helicopter which crashed a week ago with four crew on board. Pilot Capt Dara Fitzpatrick died in the crash some 13km west of Blacksod, and Capt Mark Duffy, winch crew Paul Ormsby and Ciaran Smith were still not accounted for. However, currents were too strong for the ROV on the southeast corner of the island, in a narrow channel between the main plateau and the “Parrot” rocks. The "Granuaile" returned to Blacksod late at night and returned to the island at first light, when slack tides at low water will make ROV deployment easier. The Naval Service diving team was on standby. Weather conditions were expected to settle further from March 23 until the weekend, as a concerted push is made to locate the three men and missing helicopter in the sea area where the faint signal from the black box recorder was still being detected. The Air Accident Investigation Unit (AAIU) made a further trip to Blackrock by Air Corps helicopter on March 21 but nothing significant was reported. Army climbing experts had assisted the inspectors in abseiling down a grassy area at a 45-degree angle from the lighthouse, just above precipitous cliffs, to search for a point of impact. Multibeam sonar imagery of the specific search area has been prepared by seabed mappers attached to the Marine Institute and Geological Survey of Ireland.

Later she will be taken to Denmark and possibly scrapped there. On March 20 the "Sternö" had been pulled through the lock at Lilla Edet and berthed at a dock south of the lock where she could be inspected by the Swedish Transport Agency and the investigation commission's board in order to assess whether there were any requirements that must had to be meet in order to tow her down to Gothenburg. Traffic on the Göta River was back to normal and should not be disturbed by the towing of the "Sternö", if nothing unexpected happened. The collaboration between the different parties involved has been very good, among them the Maritime Administration, the Swedish Transport Agency, insurance companies, salvage companies as well as the Lilla Edet and the County Administrative Board, and they have learned many lessons for the future.

The London registered transport m/v “Yacht Hop”, formely the Canadian trawler “Cape Chidley”, 791 gt (IMO-No.: 7418957), which had run aground in the Nettlé Bay off the Dominican island Saint Lucia in the night of March 1, 2017, is still aground 18 days after the accident. All attempts to tow it off have so far been unsuccessful. The lines broke, and the currents were not favorable. The ship is now stranded at a breakwater within the administrative zone of Galisbay-Bienvenue harbor. The port has begun dredging operations which should allow the vessel's bow to be pulled off, the last step before a new towing attempt. When the ship broke from its anchorage in the night of March 1, only one man was on watch, the rest of the crew had gone ashore. Later divers of the gendarmerie found that the anchor chain was wound around the propeller shaft. French report with photos: la1ere.francetvin...

Caribbean Princess Cruise Ship Refurb at Freeport from March 26 to April 6
During a two-week multimillion-dollar refurbishment beginning later this month, Caribbean Princess will receive a completely redone kids club and the necessary upgrades to accommodate Carnival Corp.'s new Ocean Medallion concept. Caribbean Princess will be one of the first three ships to debut the medallions, wearable technology discs that will begin to roll out next year and could eventually replace keycards for stateroom access and onboard purchases on all of Carnival Corp.'s ships (including those in the Princess, Carnival and Holland America fleets). In addition to medallion functionality, the 13-year-old 3,080-passenger ship will also house an outpost of Princess' new Camp Discovery, a revamped kids club that leverages the line's partnership with the Discovery brand to offer educational but fun programming that often ties in with the ship's itinerary. The dry dock, which will take place in Freeport from March 26 to April 6, will also upgrade Caribbean Princess' Movies Under the Stars experience, bring Princess Luxury Beds to all staterooms and add interconnecting cabins for families and other groups traveling together. www.cruisecritic....

Pacific Dawn Reveals New Look After Refurbishment
P&O Cruises has unveiled the newly refurbished Pacific Dawn in Brisbane, with some features never before seen in Australia. A team of 700 contractors spent more than 100,000 hours transforming the ship during its recent drydock in Singapore. Dual waterslides, both around 80 metres long, form the centrepiece of the refurb. This new design means two people can race each other but also enjoy a different experience on each slide. One slide is transparent so that passengers can watch people shooting through its twists and turns, while the other is multicoloured with music pumping through it. It was a close race when the slides were officially opened -- and tested -- last week by Olympian Christian Sprenger and aspiring Olympian, Joseph Ferguson, 10, who is a member of Brisbane’s Commercial Swimming Club. There is also a new kid’s waterpark on the pool deck. www.cruisecritic....

Ponant Ship Ends Cruise and Diverts to Manila Due to Safety Warning; Hull Damage to be Inspected
Ponant has diverted its current cruise on L'Austral between Port Vila and Kota Kinabalu due to safety concerns in the Sulu Sea near the Malaysian state of Sabah. L'Austral was forced to skip its visit to Borneo and will cease sailing its current itinerary today, three days early. The luxury ship will instead enter dry dock in Manila to undergo a full inspection for hull damage after two separate accidents earlier this year. In a letter to passengers, also provided to Cruise Critic, the cruise line explained that because Ponant ships sail under the French flag, “recognised by the maritime world as one of the most demanding of all, especially in terms of safety”, L’Austral was forced to reroute to the Philippines. The letter states: “On the recommendation of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we have formally been requested to avoid the Sulu Sea, and especially the Sandakan region. In addition, the certification body of our vessels is asking us to carry out a technical intervention, to be held in a port near Manila, from 16 to 19 March.” The diversion conveniently allows the opportunity to inspect and repair the 264-passenger megayacht after it was involved in two incidents in two months. In January L’Austral struck a floating object in the Sub Antarctic Islands and diverted to Bluff for an initial inspection. In February the vessel hit an undersea rock while entering Milford Sound in New Zealand, causing minor damage to its hull. Two days later, on February 11, investigators from New Zealand’s Transport Accident Investigation Commission boarded L’Austral during its visit to Dunedin to check its navigation system, Seatrade reported. www.cruisecritic....

Port of Helsinki opens new passenger ferry terminal
Finland’s Port of Helsinki has officially opened its new passenger ferry terminal, West Terminal 2, which features an automated mooring system from Cavotec. West Terminal 2 is the largest single investment project undertaken by the port in a decade and included the construction of new berths, a terminal building, passenger bridges and access roads. Cavotec has also installed its MoorMaster units, vacuum-based automated mooring technology that eliminates the need for conventional mooring lines. The remote-controlled vacuum pads on the quayside will moor and release Tallink Grupp’s new 212-metre Tallink Megastar and Tallink Star passenger ferries in seconds. This is much quicker than conventional mooring systems. The systems will also reduce noise and emissions. www.cruiseandferr...

Star Cruises eyeing to set up more home ports in PHL
HONGKONG-based Star Cruises is looking to set up more home ports in the Philippines, on the heels of its successful cruise launch from its new homeport in Manila. This was disclosed by Tourism Secretary Wanda Corazon T. Teo after the ceremony last Sunday welcoming the first Philippines homeporting of luxury cruise ship Superstar Virgo, one of the six vessels deployed by Star Cruises in Asia Pacific. She said the cruise-tourism pioneer in the region is also considering to homeport in Boracay, Aklan and Cebu. In a statement, Teo said the increasing number of cruise ships visiting Manila, as well as Boracay, is a “sure sign” that the Philippines will become a major international cruise hub in the near future. “As the first-ever cruise ship to homeport in Manila, Superstar Virgo etches a milestone in our tourism journey, as both the ship and our shores will provide vacationers, including the locals, the convenience of not having to fly to either Hong Kong or Singapore to take a cruise,” she stressed. The first maiden voyage of Superstar Virgo from Manila departed on March 19 and is currently en route to Laoag, Ilocos Norte, Kaoshiung in Taiwan, and Hong Kong. The 13-story, 935-cabin luxury cruise ship will return to Manila on May 28. Filipinos were earlier offered a promo package of P24,500 for twin-share accommodations. www.businessmirro...

First downbound vessel passes through Welland-Canal
Not only is the Welland Canal at the forefront of Niagara’s transportation infrastructure, it’s an economic driver for the region and great for tourism as well, speakers at the Top Hat Ceremony in Port Colborne said Monday morning. The ceremony, held at Lock 8 Park, celebrates the first downbound vessel to pass through the lakeside city toward Lake Ontario, and the opening of the canal. Capt. Gary Kafcsak of the tug-barge combination Calusa Coast and Delaware received the ceremonial head-topper. When speeches were over, Port Colborne Historical and Marine Museum director/curator Stephanie Powell Baswick presented a more than 100-year-old beaver felt fur top hat to Kafcsak. The Calusa Coast and Delaware are part of Dann Marine Towing, a fifth generation family-owned and operated tugboat company, which manages a fleet of 22 ocean and coastal tugboats as well as inland push boats. The captain and his crew were bound for Hamilton with a load of liquid asphalt from Detroit. “This is a big honour to do this. I love it,” Kafcsak said of the ceremony. “I appreciate what the canal and Canada has done for us, to keep us moving products and working. It’s a very well-maintained canal. We’re grateful to be working in these waters,” he said.

 Lady Alida  (Frachtschiff)

Lady Alida towed to Falmouth - RNLI did great job
On March 21 around 2.30 a.m. the "Lady Alida" was towed into the port of Falmouth and docked at the A&P Falmouth Shipyard for inspections and repairs. Before, the Penlee and Sennen Cove lifeboats had spent 11 hrs at sea on March 20 assisting the vessel which had suffered engine failure three miles south of Gwennap Head at 3 a.m. and with a strong SW force 6 wind it had started to drift towards the shore. The Falmouth Coastguard launched both lifeboats in the hope that they could attach tow lines to stop the vessel drifting ashore, or evacuate the crew if that failed. In very difficult conditions, the "Ivan Ellen" and "City of London III" managed to tow the vessel two miles into deeper safer water. The "Lady Alida" then dropped anchor and both Lifeboats headed to Newlyn at 06:20 a.m. At 06:25 a.m., while the crews were having a cup of tea in the Penlee Boathouse, the Falmouth Coastguard requested the relaunch of both lifeboats as the "Lady Alida" was dragging its anchor and drifting towards the shore at over one knot. Just after 7.00 a.m., after an uncomfortable steam, both lifeboats arrived back on scene - the initial plan was to stand by the vessel until a tug arrived from Brixham. But at 08:30 a.m., with the vessel only 2,5 miles from shore and still drifting NE at one knot, the Sennen Cove and Penlee Lifeboats once again attached tow ropes and slowly headed seaward to safer waters. The weather was with heavy rain at times; wind west-southwest force 5-6 with a moderate sea and 3-4 metre swell. The salvage tug on route from Brixham was struggling with the poor weather conditions and making slow progress. A larger tug, the "Alp Centre" , which was anchored in Mount's Bay, was then tasked to assist the "Lady Alida". By the time the tug arrived on scene at 12.30 a.m. both lifeboats had towed the vessel over four miles to safer waters in fairly poor weather conditions. With their job complete the two lifeboats could be stood down after nearly 11 hours at sea. The lifeboats were released at 12.50 a.m., and the “City of London III” returned to the Cove and recovered up the long slip at 1.45 p.m. The boats had to be washed down, checked over and refuelled, ready for the next shout before the crews got a rest.

Lady Alida distressed off Gwennap Head
Lifeboat crews have been taking part in a major rescue operation since the early hours of March 20, 2017, after the "Lady Alida" suffered a complete engine failure enroute from Terneuzen to Waterford with a cargo of sand. The Penlee Lifeboat and Sennen RNLI were called to the position three miles south of Gwennap Head, in the parish of St. Levan, to assist the seven crew members onboard. At 3.20 a.m., at the request of HM Coastguard, Falmouth, the all-weather lifeboat "Ivan Ellen" was launched from Newlyn. The lifeboat was alongside the "Lady Alida" just 25 minutes after launching and immediately attached a towing wire. The vessel was towed southwards to safer waters at one knot and was then joined by the Sennen Lifeboat "City of London III" which also attached a tow rope. The initial plan was to tow her to Mount's Bay for a safe anchorage but due to the strong SW wind of six Beaufort it was difficult for the lifeboat to turn the vessel. The HM Coastguard at Falmouth agreed that the Lady Alida could anchor in deeper waters south of Gwennap Head to await the assistance of a tug. The Dutch tug "Alp Centre" (IMO: 9398541) was deployed from Falmouth and expected on site within seven hours. The lifeboat remained on stand-by with a strong likelihood that she would have to relaunch when the tug has arrived on scene. The "Ivan Ellen" was relaunched from Newlyn and was making her way back to the "Lady Alida" after she started dragging her anchor, and the lifeboat was to standby with a tow rope until the tug had arrived around 1.30 p.m. The convoy was heading to Falmouth, ETA March 21.

Sternö drained and lightered
By March 20, the "Sternö" been emptied of cargo and water. Ardent salvors had mobilized salvage craft and equipment, connected three strand jacks to bollards on the opposite side of the river to parbuckle the vessel. The icy weather and the traffic on an active ship channel were big considerations. The parbuckle operation corrected the list to 11 degrees, and then the cargo was lightered. Once the salvors pumped the water out of the engine room and holds, the vessel refloated and was stabilized at a four degree list. The Transport Agency will now take a decision on how, to which place and when the vessel will be towed away from the Göta River. The decision will be taken jointly with the Maritime Administration and the Commission of Inquiry according to Göran Andersson, Director of the Operations Rescue Service at Lilla Edet.
