Ferry in collision with yacht
On Mar 1, 2015, the "Queenscliff" was in collision with a sailboat which had no control in stormy weather and rapid waves off Sydney. While the "Queenscliff" altered course to port to avoid the vessel, it could not alter dramatically due to the Sow and Pigs reef which was portside and the smaller vessel made contact with the back of the ferry. The yacht smacked hard into the ferry and looked as if it was going to capsize. The "Queenscliff" came to a stop, all crew were mobilised to render assistance and emergency services were called. Fortunately, the yacht had remained upright and its’ crew were safe. Report with photos: www.dailytelegrap...

New sea terminal of Angola’s Sonangol ready in 2015
The new sea terminal of Barro do Dande (north of Luanda), a project costing an estimated US$1 billion, will be completed this year, the chairman of national oil company Sonangol said in Luanda. Francisco de Lemos José Maria said that the terminal will be able to store 640,000 cubic metres of oil, gas and lubricants and added that the company this year starts construction of areas for storage of fuels in Soyo, Lubango and Namibe, taking into consideration disruptions to supply that sometimes occur. The company also plans this year to begin construction of Sonangol’s delegations in Cabinda, Soyo, Malanje, Lobito, Huambo and Lubango, among other investments, such as the Lobito Refinery, which should be completed by 2017. Also this year, according to the company’s investment timetable presented Wednesday, construction of the new Ocean Terminal in Soyo, Zaire province, is due to begin at an estimated cost of US$220 million. In the shipping area, the Sonangol group has commissioned a South Korean shipyard to build two ships for transporting fuels, to be delivered from 2016 onwards. “With this investment programme Sonangol seeks to generate savings by reducing costs, improving systems and processes,” said Francisco de Lemos.

Durban Digs Deep to Lure Large Container Ships From Suez Canal
The South African port of Durban has started an excavation project to triple its capacity to handle large container ships, encouraging more vessels to sail around the Cape of Good Hope, rather than use the Suez Canal. Global maritime traffic is increasingly dominated by large vessels that need to be serviced at specialized deep ports, Mark Gregg-MacDonald, an executive at state transport company Transnet SOC Ltd., told reporters in Durban on Friday. The city is South Africa’s third-largest and has its busiest harbor. “It’s more cost effective to sail modern, large container vessels around the Cape than through the Suez Canal,” Gregg-MacDonald said. Work on the project, known as dig out port in Durban, started in 2012 and the first phase is due to be completed by 2025. Project Director Marc Descoins said it will take the port’s capacity to 9.5 million twenty-foot equivalent units in 2040, from 2.7 million last year. The port expansion will contribute at least 16.5 billion rand ($1.4 billion) to the South African economy, Gregg-MacDonald said. Source: Bloomberg

RXR Realty and Youngwoo & Associates are considering the idea of redeveloping Manhattan’s pier 57 with a retired ocean liner as a hotel, according to a report on therealdeal.com. The two companies formed a joint venture last year and are looking into bringing in a ship with the intention to create a hotel facility at pier 57. The redevelopment plan around pier 57 includes some 200,000 to 300,000 square feet of office space and other real estate. The Queen Elizabeth 2, meanwhile, continues to be laid up in Dubai with no news on a previously announced plan to convert it into a hotel after moving the ship to Asia. The SS United States currently sits in Philadelphia with some movement on a redevelopment plan, and the SS United States Conservancy group, which oversees the vessel, has had its eye on New York.

Vessel queues ease in Manila
Officials from Regional Container Lines (RCL) have confirmed a claim made by the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) of easing congestion at Manila ports, IHS 360 reports. There has been a progressive improvement in congestion at Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), and vessels queuing up have reduced, an RCL official told IHS Maritime. Looking forward, RCL, a Thai intra-Asia shipping specialist, is cautious about its implications. "The situation is still fluid and we can't make the predication at this juncture," the RCL official added. "However, there are measures taken by Philippine authorities to further ease this congestion and we need to monitor this development." www.ihsmaritime36...

Transporters worried about Egypt’s decision not to renew Ro-Ro deal with Turkey
Turkish transporters are worried about Egypt’s decision not to renew the sea and land transit transportation agreement for roll-on/roll-off (Ro-Ro) ships with Turkey. The existing deal will expire on April 23. Transporters in Turkey’s south have faced mounting problems, particularly after the closing of the Cilvegözü Border Gate between Turkey and Syria, said Yusuf Hatay, the head of private transportation company Hatay Ro-Ro, which was established by 55 transportation firms in the region. As a result, the transportation of Ro-Ro ships from Turkey’s Mersin port to a number of Egypt’s ports became a viable alternative route, in order to bypass conflict-ridden lands to Turkey’s south, Hatay added. Hatay Ro-Ro at first started to make one shipment a week, before doubling the shipments with a 100 percent occupancy rate, he also said. “The sea and land transit transportation deal, which enables companies to transport goods between Turkey and Egypt, and Egypt and Saudi Arabia, will expire on April 23. The Egyptian authorities had earlier announced that they would not renew the deal. This will hit us as well as Turkey’s exports,” Hatay stated. Signed in March 2012, the agreement allows the use of Egyptian seaports for the transport of Turkish foodstuffs, electrical appliances and textile products to markets in the Gulf. www.hurriyetdaily...

Police foil wood smuggling attempt to Malaysia
The East Kalimantan Police have foiled an attempt to smuggle 365,772 cubic meters of Indian rosewood, locally known as sonokeling, to Tawau, Malaysia. “We boarded the KLM Satria Bahari boat near the islands of Sipadan and Ligitan on Feb. 25,” the police’s Adj. Sr. Comr. R. Djarot Agung Riadi said in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, on Saturday. Riadi said the KLM Satria Bahari, captained by Iwan, had sailed to Tarakan, North Kalimantan, from Probolinggo, East Java. He said Satria Bahari’s trip was legal because the captain had shown a valid sail permit. However, as soon as it arrived at Tarakan, the vessel continued its trip to Tawau without mooring at Tarakan Port. “We intercepted the Satria Bahari when it was about to enter Sipadan-Ligitan waters at 10 a.m. local time. We found the ship’s captain did not have valid documents for its trip to Tawau,” Riadi said, adding that the ship was carrying a large number of sonokeling logs. Based on information provided by the ship’s captain, the police obtained the name of the owner of the smuggled-wood – Wahab - who lived in Tawau. The police also found the Stripes of Glory, the Malaysian national flag, during their search of the vessel. - See more at: www.thejakartapos...

Chief mate received six month prison sentence for deadly collision
The chief mate of the "Shoreway" which was involved in a fatal collision off eastern England on June 8, 2014 has received a six-month prison sentence suspended for 18 months. Gerardus Chapel was on the bridge of Royal Boskalis Westminster's trailing suction hopper dredger. The vessel had just finished dredging and was heading out to sea to dump spoil from quay extension work at the Hutchison Ports-owned Port of Felixstowe, in Suffolk. Sailing in the opposite direction, in a channel used by leisure craft, was the yacht "Orca" owned by Peter and Bernadine Ingram. The dredger changed course slightly from the deepwater channel and proceeded south into an area known to be frequented by sailing yachts, especially at the weekend and hit the 9 m yacht head-on, and its anchor gouged a large hole in the boat's starboard side. The "Orca" sank immediately, and although Peter Ingram and a dog swam clear, Bernadine Ingram was trapped in the galley. Her body was recovered the following day. The Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) reported that when he was interviewed by officers after the accident, Chapel admitted that he did not see the yacht, despite excellent visibility and fine weather at the time. Passing sentence at Ipswich Crown Court, His Hon Judge Devaux credited Chapel with accepting responsibility and co-operating with investigators. He pleaded guilty to "conduct endangering ships, structures or individuals", under Section 58 of the Merchant Shipping Act. The Maritime Accident Investigation Branch's investigation into the accident is at the consultation stage.

China’s LNG terminals underutilised
Shanghai: Despite all the bluster surrounding China’s LNG demand, a study by Russian newswire Interfax shows that China used just over half its LNG regasification capacity in 2014, as tariff hikes and cheaper competing fuels hit gas demand growth. Ten of China’s 12 operational LNG terminals were online for the full year and they used an average of 55% of their capacity, based on total imports of 19.5 mt. China’s regasification capacity is around 35 mtpa. The figures were down on 2013 when the then seven operational terminals had a 67.2% utilisation rate. CNOOC had both the busiest and the most idle terminals. The least used were Zhuhai and the Tianjin FSRU, both of which had utilisation rates of only 10% in 2014. The busiest terminal in 2014 was CNOOC’s 3 mtpa Shanghai LNG facility. It received 2.94 mt, a utilisation rate of 98%. Despite the overall sluggish utilisation rates, BP’s latest energy outlook for 2035 paints a very bullish picture of Chinese LNG demand. The report released on Tuesday, stated: “Chinese demand growth requires a rapid expansion of imports (7.6 per cent) via both LNG and pipelines. LNG overtakes pipeline supplies as the dominant form of Chinese gas imports by the 2030s". [Sinoshipnews 20/02/15]

Mediterranean Shipping Company launches new Australia Express service
Mediterranean Shipping Company has launched a new Australia Express service, linking Australian ports directly with Europe, India, the Middle East, and Pakistan. The new service will remove the need for transhipments through Singapore, with its first sailing to be made by SCT Zurich out of Sydney, on March 23rd, the company said. MSC state manager for Western Australia/Northern Territory Robert Boyce says the service is a reorganisation of existing liner services to directly connect Australia with major markets instead of routing cargo via Singapore. Previously the shipping company has used the island nation, a major shipping hub, as a transit point to ship cargo to Europe, India, the Middle East, Pakistan, and the Red Sea region. “It’s a modification of a current service we have been running, not an additional service in the market,” said Boyce. “It’s taken the transhipment off of Singapore and made us more competitive.” MSC vessels will depart Australia out of Fremantle after calling at Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide. The vessels on the new service will then circuit from Singapore to Chennai, Colombo, King Abdullah Port, Gioia Tauro, Valencia, Fos, La Spezia, Naples, Gioia Tauro, and Suez before heading south to Pointe des Galets, Port Louis and east back to Sydney. The express service connects directly with other MSC routes, providing improved transit times and a wider transhipment network, which MSC says will make the shipping line’s services more competitive through enhanced efficiency. customstoday.com....

Stromness RNLI boat spent the night towing the Aquarius
The Stromness lifeboat was paged at just before 10 p.m. on Feb 27, 2015, to help the "Aquarius", whose gearbox had failed to the northwest of Noup Head, Westray. There was a crew of six onboard the fishing vessel, and conditions were breezy with a high swell from the west. Getting regular updates on the position of the "Aquarius" from the Coastguard, the lifeboat arrived on the scene at 12.30 a.m. A long towrope was attached and the lifeboat began to tow the boat towards Orkney at 2 knots, the fastest safe speed given the 5-6 metre waves. The chafe on the towline was a problem and the tow had to be shortened several times. The crew requested the emergency tug "Herakles" to be sent by the Coastguard to tow the "Aquarius". She arrived at 4 a.m. on Feb 28 and attempted to pass a tow to the fishing boat, She arrived at 4am on Saturday and attempted to pass a tow to the fishing boat but this snapped and a second line of thick wire would not fit onto the fishing boat’s winches. The skipper of the vessel was also concerned about the proximity of the tug to his boat and five crew so it was decided to continue with the tow from the lifeboat until another fishing boat could take over. The fishing boat "Discovery" arrived at 7.45 a.m. and put a wire tow on-board the "Aquarius" and began the tow south to Scrabster, leaving the lifeboat and the Coastguard tug to return to port. The convoy reached Scrabster on Mar 1 at 1.45 a.m. Report with photo and video: rnli.org/NewsCent...

Cattle export to Thailand boosts industry hopes
The largest shipment of live Australian cattle to Thailand in decades carries with it industry hopes of opening a new alternative market to Indonesia. The shipment of about 1000 feeder and slaughter cattle left Darwin port on Sunday – in the second shipment to Thailand after the Australian Government secured an agreed health protocol with the country in December last year. Though this was small compared with exports to Indonesia – which took 624,000 Australian cattle last year – the industry has predicted Australia could annually export up to 30,000 to Thailand in coming years. thenewdaily.com.a...

Somali pirates release 4 fishermen held captive for nearly five years
MOGADISHU, Somalia — Four Thai fishermen held captive by Somali pirates for nearly five years, longer than any other hostages seized off the Somali coast, have been released after intensive negotiations, Somali and United Nations officials said. The Thais, who were released Wednesday, were among 24 members of the crew on the FV Prantalay 12, a Taiwanese-flagged fishing vessel that was seized in April 2010. Fourteen, all from Myanmar, were released a year later, and six others died of various illnesses, according to a statement from the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime. The pirates used the vessel as a mother ship until it capsized in July 2011, and remaining hostages were taken ashore. The negotiations were conducted by the U.N. agency. It was not clear whether a ransom had been paid.

Azores makes unexpected visit to Portland (UK)
PORTLAND welcomed an unexpected visitor from the high seas. Cruise ship MV Azores docked at Portland Port on Friday, Feb. 27 after poor weather prompted the shipping company Cruise and Maritime Voyages to order a diversion. The ship was due to dock at Bristol earlier this week at the end of a voyage to the West Indies but due to adverse weather and sea conditions in the Atlantic a 'precautionary decision' was taken to divert the ship for an un-scheduled call in Lisbon until conditions improved. Azores then called at Portland where the cruise was terminated due to very tight tidal restrictions at Avonmouth. It is next due to sail to Norway for a 'Land of the Northern Lights' cruise and will remain at Portland until next Friday. Passengers due to join the ship at Bristol will be transported by coach to Portland.

Iraqi Kurdistan's Texas oil tanker unloads in Israel
An oil tanker that was blocked for months from unloading in Texas by a Baghdad legal challenge has sailed back to the Mediterranean and delivered its cargo to Israel, according to trading sources and ship-tracking data. The United Kalvrvta tanker, carrying 1 million barrels of crude from the semi-autonomous region, became embroiled in a legal dispute in Texas last July after the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) looked to ramp up independent oil shipments. The Iraqi central government challenged the sales, branding them illegal. The KRG protested that independent sales were allowed under Iraq's constitution. The tanker spent several months off the coast of Texas after Baghdad tried to have a U.S. court seize the oil. The ship eventually set sail from Texas in late January, shortly after Baghdad and the KRG agreed a temporary deal on oil sales. Ship-tracking data this week showed the tanker sailing fully-laden towards the Israeli port of Ashkelon before its satellite transponder was turned off on Feb 22. It reappeared on Friday unladen. Several of the oil tankers that have carried Iraqi Kurdistan crude from Turkey's Mediterranean port of Ceyhan have unloaded at Israeli ports, according to ship-tracking data and industry sources. www.jpost.com/Mid...

Australian Customs officials located and intercepted the ship near the Cocos Islands, south-west of Indonesia on Feb 26, six weeks after it was first spotted operating in the Southern Ocean by the New Zealand Navy. The vessel had lied about being flagged to Equatorial Guinea. It was suspected the "Kunlun", which has a long history of illegal fishing activity, was en route to Southeast Asia to offload its catch. On Jan. 13, following a request by the New Zealand government, three poaching vessels including the Kunlun vessel were issued with Interpol Purple Notices for suspected illegal fishing activity and related crimes. According to the Interpol, the three illegal fishing ships were ostensibly owned by shell companies in Central America, under listings that reveal nothing about the "true beneficial owners" of the vessels.

Binh also rejected the information that the local authorities seized 12 military guns on the ship. Instead the weapons were collected from two of the three ships of the Filipino rice buyer.

Lindavia got sailing permit
The "Lindavia" has been permitted to leave Dutch Harbor after the Coast Guard detained the vessel for two weeks amid an ongoing environmental crimes investigation. On Feb 26 the German operator, the Herm. Dauelsberg GmbH & Co. KG, signed an agreement with the Coast Guard, posting a $500,000 bond and agreeing to leave some of its approximately 20 crew members in Anchorage in exchange for permission to leave port. The crew will stay to respond to investigators' questions. The operator and owner will cover the crews' costs. The Lindavia, arrived in Dutch Harbor on Feb 12. Before it entered the port, the crew notified the Coast Guard that bad weather had damaged the ship's navigation lights and radar system. The ship had traveled from China to Dutch Harbor to pick up a cargo of seafood. Its next stop was Japan. When the "Lindavia" reached Dutch Harbor, the Coast Guard boarded the ship and became aware of possible environmental crimes. The German shipping company pleaded guilty to two felony environmental charges in 2014 after the "Bellavia" discharged oil-contaminated seawater into the Pacific Ocean. The vessel was detained in Long Beach.

Lysblink Seaways anchored in Scallastle Bay
In the night of Feb 25 the "Lysblink Seaways" was anchored at Scallastle Bay at the southeast end of the Sound of Mull which was regarded as an ideal anchorage in the continuing stormy weather. She arrived there being towed by the "Kingdom of Fife", which was, supported by the "Forth Jouster" and the "Schiehallion" out of Oban. The Emergency Towing Vessel "Herakles" had provided escort and safety cover before being released at 10 p.m. On arrival, the convoy found the tug "Sally Ann", towing fish farm nets, already occupying the anchorage. When asked to move, the "Sally Ann" managed to get a rope wrapped round her propeller. The "Lysblink Seaways" continued to be stable. However the weather forecast for the coming days was not good which meanr she would remain where she is until conditions were more favourable. A decision about where she will be taken next had yet to be made but it was thought she might undergo repairs in Liverpool. In the meantime, the Norwegian tug "Luca" has arrived to take over from the "Kingdom of Fife". The Scottish Environment Group continued to monitor events and is supporting the work being done. A temporary exclusion zone of 100 metres was established at the new anchorage. Report with photos: kilchoan.blogspot...

Port of Portland container terminal would close for good if ICTSI leaves, official says
An agreement between 29 west coast ports and longshoremen over new contract terms this week did little to ease tension at the Port of Portland. In an interview Wednesday, Port Executive Director Bill Wyatt said lingering bad blood between longshoremen here and container-terminal operator ICTSI Oregon could have serious long-term consequences for the region. If ICTSI were to leave in the wake of a decision by Hanjin Shipping Co. to pull the plug on Portland, Wyatt said, the Port's Terminal 6 will be out of the container business permanently. Wyatt said he doubts it will come to that. Port and ICTSI officials plan to continue drumming up new business for the container terminal in an effort to replace Hanjin, though that effort has been largely ineffective in the past. Wyatt reiterated what many in Oregon who rely on global trade are saying: The labor dispute needs to be resolved. The local International Longshore and Warehouse Union has long clashed with ICTSI, weighing down productivity at the port and ultimately driving away Hanjin. The U.S. Department of Commerce released numbers Thursday that Oregon exported $20.4 billion, mostly in computers and electronics, agricultural goods, machinery -- a record-breaking year. The Oregon export industry supported 92,000 American jobs, according to the data. The figures were released a day after possibly the last Hanjin ship -- the Copenhagen -- left port. The Hanjin Copenhagen sailed at 6 a.m. Wednesday after 20 days in port. Ships aim to turn around in one to two days. This ship took nearly 80 percent of the container terminal's business with it. www.oregonlive.co...

Australia defence ship Ocean Shield docks in Hobart raising hopes illegal fishing boat patrols will start
The Federal Government's Southern Ocean patrol boat, Australian Defence Vessel (ADV) OCEAN SHIELD, has docked in Hobart amid speculation it may soon start pursuing illegal fishers.ADV OCEAN SHIELD is one of two ships used for patrolling the Southern Ocean for illegal fishing boats. Tasmanian Greens senator Peter Whish-Wilson said he hoped it had come to Hobart to start patrols."My expectation is that the boat will now head south and patrol the Southern Ocean," he said."It is long overdue so this is a case of better late than never."The Federal Government has faced criticism in recent weeks from New Zealand authorities and Sea Shepherd activists over its lack of surveillance, as both chase boats illegally fishing for Patagonian toothfish. Senator Whish-Wilson was also critical of the Government's delay in carrying out two patrols it had previously promised using ADV OCEAN SHIELD."We've been waiting for this boat to appear on the horizon all summer after the Government promised that they would do two 40 day patrols in the Southern Ocean," he said."The ice-rated $150 million ACV OCEAN SHIELD was purpose-built to patrol in environments like the Southern Ocean."We hope it is on the way to the Southern Ocean to provide the patrols it was promised to do."A spokeswoman for the Border Protection Minister Peter Dutton said the Government can not disclose the location of its assets or operational activity.
