Libya's PFG to Lift Terminal Blockades
Petroleum Facilities Guard has blocked terminals for months. Ras Lanuf, Es Sider terminals damaged by fighting. Libya's Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) will start lifting a blockade on eastern oil terminals over the next three days, though a resumption of exports will depend on the state of the ports, a spokesman said on Friday. The PFG, which protects Libya's oil terminals and fields, has blockaded the major eastern terminals of Ras Lanuf, Es Sider and Zueitina for months, and promises earlier this year to reopen them have so far come to nothing. Labour disputes, political conflict and security threats have crippled Libya's oil output over the past three years. Production in the OPEC member state has been fluctuating at less than a quarter of the more than 1.6 million bpd reached in 2011, the year an uprising toppled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Ras Lanuf and Es Sider, Libya's biggest export terminals, have a combined potential capacity of 600,000 barrels per day (bpd), but both facilities have been damaged by fighting. http://174.128.194.76/news/blockades-terminal-libyas412931.aspx

Patrol boat saved 453 migrants and recovered 16 bodies
On July 21 the crew of "LÉ James Joyce" discovered 16 dead migrants onboard a metal barge who they believe died of crushing and suffocation because they were so tightly packed into the vessel. The "LÉ James Joyce" was tasked by the Italian authorities shortly after 6 a.m. to go the metal barge, which was spotted nearly 47 km north-west of Tripoli. Within moments of boarding the barge, navy personnel realised there were a number of dead people among the migrants. In total they saved 453 migrants and it took several hours to transfer them all to the "LÉ James Joyce" where they were given water, food, and, in some cases, medical attention. The bodies of the dead migrants were taken onboard the naval vessel. The ship was subsequently asked to rendezvous with an aid ship in the area, from which it took a further 152 migrants who had been picked up in the area earlier. The "LÉ James Joyce" headed to an Italian port to drop off the living and the dead. Counselling services will be provided to the crew following the discovery of the bodies. The operation brings to 678 the total number of persons rescued by the "LÉ James Joyce" since July 19.

Meanwhile, work to sanitize and seal the vessel was nearing completion, as was the process of sealing and pressurising the vessel's cargo tanks and void spaces. However, the salvage of the "Benita" has proven much more difficult than first thought. Bad weather has repeatedly delayed the salvage operation. Five Oceans Salvage reports that the ship was remaining in a stable condition with no major changes, although bad weather again hampered salvage operations in the last few days. Five Oceans will make another attempt during the next days if the weather permits. Tugs remained attached to the vessel to prevent it from being washed up further onto the reef in bad weather. The plans to use explosives to get the ship from the reef have been dropped.

Metrans puts first hybrid shunting locomotive into operation at the Port of Hamburg
Metrans, the Rail Subsidiary of Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA), is reacting to the growing shunting volumes at Europe’s largest rail port by increasing the number of its own shunting locomotives by two to five, HHLA said on Thursday. The Company has opted for the modern hybrid technology of the Prima H3 locomotives from Alstom, meaning that for the first time in the world a hybrid locomotive will be used for heavy-duty shunting on a permanent basis. Roger Mahler, Managing Director of Metrans Rail (Deutschland) GmbH, said: “The two Prima H3 shunting locomotives will help us to cope with the increasing shunting volumes at the Port of Hamburg. We are pleased by the locomotives’ high performance and environmental friendliness, which we will be able to make use of in our shunting collaboration with other rail operators at the port. This makes the Port of Hamburg, the largest rail port in Europe, even more efficient.”

First U.S. LNG shipment to cross expanded Panama Canal
The United States will ship its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo through an expanded Panama Canal next week. The waterway shaves distances between export plants dotted along the Gulf of Mexico and Asia to 9,000 miles from 16,000, allowing U.S. producers to better compete in one of the world's biggest gas consuming markets. The size of most LNG tankers had previously prevented them from squeezing through, forcing them to sail around South America instead. Royal Dutch Shell's Maran Gas Apollonia tanker loaded up at Cheniere Energy's Sabine Pass LNG export plant in Louisiana and will arrive at the Panama Canal on July 25, according to Kpler LNG, a shipping analysis firm. Shipping data shows the vessel to be heading in the direction of Panama. Shell owns the entire output of Sabine Pass's first production line. A day later BP Plc's British Merchant will begin passing through the Panama Canal also carrying cargo from the United States to Manzanillo on Mexico's Pacific coast, Kpler LNG said. It is not known where in the Pacific Shell's vessel will sail.

Report on engine room fire published
Following the engine room fire aboard the "Le Boréal" on Nov 17, 2015, French maritime authorities have recently released an incident report concerning the vessel. The fire was due to a clogged fuel filter element, which was disassembled under pressure by a crewmember and thus started leaking fuel. A fire broke out immediately around third diesel generator’s turboblower and rapidly spread, via cabling, to the upper decks of the engine room. the engine room fire spread quickly, leaving the ship dead in the water without propulsion, but with emergency backup power. The water-mist fire extinguishing system triggered automatically, but was not strong enough to prevent the fire from spreading along bunched cables. The crew had the fire under control shortly after, but the powerplant was out of commission. With the vessel drifting towards the coast, the captain made the decision to drop anchor and evacuate passengers and almost all crewmembers with the support of the Royal Navy and sister ship L’Austral, which was in the area at the time. The ship was on an 11-day Antarctica cruise at the time, with 347 people onboard, including 194 passengers of which there was a group of 90 Chinese.

Marseille Fos powers ahead with expansion works
Two main construction projects at the French port Marseille Fos which will enable it to handle mega-ships are nearing completion. These works, costing almost €64 million, will cater for mega-ships by enlarging the Passe Nord port entrance from 190 to 240m and recommissioning the No.10 drydock Marseille Fos port authority is contributing almost half the €32.7 million cost for the works alongside State and regional funding. In addition, the drydock has been flooded for the first time since work started in January 2014 to enable flotation of a new 9,100 tonne dock gate and three 4,500 tonne caissons that will form the remodelled ends of the sea walls guarding the harbour entrance. Currently 12m tall, the caissons are being towed to the Passe Nord site one by one in a phase lasting until October, when afloat construction will take them to a height of 22m. The 15m diameter, 30m long units will then be sunk on to platforms 18m below sea level and injected with up to 10,000 tonnes of concrete. Project completion is scheduled by the end of 2016. www.portstrategy....

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Royal Caribbean's Empress of the Seas flunked a surprise sanitation inspection conducted in early June. The Empress of the Seas scored a failing score of only 80. A score of 85 or lower is considered a failure. The Empress of the Seas underwent an extended period of renovations in Spain and later in Freeport, Bahamas when the ship was transferred back from Pullmantur. Royal Caribbean canceled a total of thirteen cruises scheduled for earlier this year. The first sanitation violation related to the renovation and involved a bathroom for the medical staff which could be used only for storage and was "heavily soiled." Back in April of this year, Royal Caribbean told the Miami Herald that “as work has progressed, we learned that more significant infrastructure and physical improvements across the ship’s multiple galleys and provisioning areas were needed to meet our high standards.” www.cruiselawnews...

Wharf extension just one Port Otago plan
Port Otago is going to put out tenders shortly in preparation for a $15 million 140m wharf extension at Port Chalmers, to better accommodate vessels over 280m in length. The venture was one of several presented to 100% owner the Otago Regional Council, where port chairman Dave Faulkner and chief executive Geoff Plunket yesterday outlined a number of projects in its three-year plan to mid-2019. Consent for the wharf extension was gained under Port Otago's "New Generation'' dredging project, and would result in 140m being added to the existing 300m wharf, using steel piles, capped by a reinforced concrete slab. Mr Plunket said after the meeting the existing container terminal berth was "ideal'' for vessels under 280m, while the outer multipurpose berth extension would cater for vessels of more than 280m in length; allowing cranes ready access to bow and stern-stored containers.

Vard lays off entire workforce at Norwegian yard, shuts down Brazilian yard
Norwegian offshore shipbuilder Vard is facing major challenges amid the doldrums in the offshore sector resulting in layoffs, temporary layoffs and yard closures. Temporary layoffs have been used across the company’s Norwegian yard to manage to impact of low workloads, however at Vard Brevik the entire workforce has been laid off while new business opportunities are being explored to utilize the idle capacity. While Vard said operations in Romania and Vietnam are stable, in Brazil the Vard Niteroi yard has been shut down and the lease land area returned to owners in mid-July. The workforce has been terminated and some key resouces have been transferred to Vard Promar, which is still experiencing high activity levels. Vard reported revenues of NOK4.2bn for the first half of 2016, down from NOK5.6bn in 2015.

RN nuclear-powered submarine collides with ship off Gibraltar
A nuclear-powered Royal Navy submarine has been forced into port in Gibraltar after a collision with a merchant vessel. An immediate investigation has been launched after HMS Ambush was involved in the "glancing" collision while submerged off the coast of Gibraltar, the Royal Navy said. The Astute-class vessel suffered "some external damage" but no crew members were injured in the incident. The attack submarine's nuclear reactor was undamaged, the Royal Navy said. A statement posted on the Ministry of Defence website said on Wednesday: "At approximately 1.30pm local time today, HMS Ambush, an Astute-class submarine, while submerged and conducting a training exercise was involved in a glancing collision with a merchant vessel off the coast of Gibraltar. "We are in contact with the merchant vessel and initial indications are that it has not sustained damage.

 Norwegian Breakaway  (Passagierschiff)
vor 2 Tagen von Timsen

One crew member dead in accident during lifeboat drill
Four crew members of the "Norwegian Breakaway" were injured when a lifeboat fell from the ship in Bermuda on July 20, 2016, a Philippino was taken in critical condition to the hospital and later succumbed to his injuries. A lifeboat fell from the cruise ship and flipped upside down in the water with its hull partially showing, resulting in four people falling into the water. Among the rescuers were staff on board the tour boat "Aristocat", who towed the injured man to shore. The captain brought his vessel around the cruise ship’s seaward side to find an overturned boat and a man floating in the water. The cruise ship had one of their lifeboats out but could not manoeuvre it. One of the tour boat's crew members jumped in to help the injured. The man was in back and leg pain, with several bones apparently broken. Because of the risk of moving a person with possible spinal injuries, the crew member remained supporting the man while the catamaran towed him to the dock of Calico Jack’s bar, where a board could be placed under his back by waiting paramedics. More crew and a passenger helped getting the crew member on to land. The first responders went to Dockyard just before noon. The accident occurred during a routine drill. Ambulances from Port Royal responded as well as King Edward VII Memorial Hospital. The "Norwegian Breakaway" had arrived from New York earlier in the morning. Carrying 4,300 passengers, the ship was due to return to the East Coast of the United States on July 22.

 Queen Of Burnaby  (Passagierschiff)
vor 2 Tagen von Timsen

Ferry under repair after oil leak
The "Queen of Burnaby" is undergoing repairs for the second time this year on a part leaking oil. The ferry has been temporarily removed from service on the Comox-Powell River route to repair a propeller hub. The ship has developed an oil leak in its starboard propeller. It was leaking about 25 litres of oil per day into the water. The Queen of Burnaby was expected to return to regularly scheduled service on July 29. B.C. Ferries switched lubricants on the "Queen of Burnaby" after another leak. The vessel was already out of service for three weeks in January, when the propeller hub was found to be leaking traditional oil. B.C. Ferries believed that leak lasted between five and seven days. Crews used booms and soaker pads to clean what they could, but much of it evaporated. For the January repair, B.C. Ferries used original parts from the manufacturer, brought in authorized representatives and had its own experts oversee the process. The vessel is due for retirement early next year. It will be replaced by the $84-million "Salish Orca" — the first of three new liquefied natural gas-fuelled vessels joining the fleet. While the vessel is out of service, the "Island Sky" will operate on a modified schedule, providing service between Comox, Texada Island and Powell River. The North Island Princess and the "Quinitsa" will operate on the Saltery Bay-Earls Cove route on a modified schedule. Complimentary travel will be offered to customers travelling to and from Texada Island. A 40-person water taxi service will carry foot passengers between Texada Island and the government dock next to Westview Terminal in Powell River. It will operate according to regularly published sailing times for the Texada Island-Powell River route.

Itajai shippers slam Brasilia for lack of emergency dredging aid
Shippers using the container terminals overseen by the Itajai Port Authority are livid with the Brazilian government for failing to provide emergency dredging needed so container lines can fully load their ships. Although the government has provided funding for the emergency dredging, the 65 million reais ($19.82 million) set aside to restore the terminals’ depth of between 12.8 meters and 13 meters (42 feet and 42.6 feet) at low tide was so low that no dredging outfits even placed a bid for the work. The situation could be worse though, as an unusually dry spell of weather has helped to protect the flood-prone terminals from being inundated. The terminals had to temporarily close in October because of flooding from heavy rain, the origin of the dredging emergency, and was seriously damaged in a bout of 2008 flooding. www.joc.com/port-...

Responding to an AMVER request, the crew of the "OOCL Utah" altered their course to retrieve the distressed sailor, safely took him aboard the ship and is currently transporting him to their next port of call in Busan, South Korea. Watchstanders at the Coast Guard 13th District Command Center received the notification of distress from the operator of the 37-foot sailing vessel "Sea Sweeper" stating that weather had torn his sails on the vessel's lower mast, was having issues with its engine and batteries and was running low on potable water. During his transit the operator was also battling 30 mph winds and 8-foot seas. Due to the great distance of the sailing vessel, the Command Center personnel issued the AMVER broadcast asking any mariners in the immediate area to assist the operator of the "Sea Sweeper". The crew of the "OOCL Utah" responded to the request for assistance and proceeded with the rescue of the sailing vessel operator. The operator of the sailing vessel was reportedly found without proper safety equipment including a life raft and emergency beacon onboard his vessel. The lack of essential equipment was a factor which prompted the AMVER assist. A message has been issued to all mariners operating in the area notifying them of the adrift vessel.
