vor 13 Std von Timsen

Seized ship offered for sinking
The "Ana Cecilia" that made a landmark humanitarian voyage from Miami to Cuba could be sunk off the coast of Palm Beach County. U.S. Customs and Border Protection were offering to donate the ship to the county's artificial reef program. It made the first delivery of humanitarian goods from Miami to Havana in 50 years in 2012, but it was seized during a cocaine smuggling investigation three years later. This would be the first ship Palm Beach County has scuttled since 2013.

Two missing from cruise ship are fine
Two Americans who were cruising on the "Oasis of the Seas" cruise ship went missing while making a port of call in Falmouth, Jamaica. But they are apparently just fine after getting in touch with family back home in San Diego, United States. The 33-year-old Hayden Gerson and 32-year-old Alisha Frank contacted a family member. Authorities in Jamaica were being notified that Gerson and Frank are ok and were not missing. The pair had planned on visiting Montego Bay which is around a 40 minute drive away from the ship port in Falmouth on Apr 26, 2016. They disembarked the vessel at around 9:26 a.m. and were never seen since. They never made it back to ship before it departed. The ship was sailing a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise which departed Fort Lauderdale, Florida on April 23.

Norovirus outbreak in Norfolk
Dozens of people on board the "Balmoral" which docked in Norfolk on Apr 28, 2016, have been sickened by a norovirus. The ship was berthed at the Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center. 153 of 917 passengers on board have become ill, and six out of 518 crew members have reported becoming ill. In response to the outbreak, the ship has increased cleaning and disinfection procedures, begun collecting stool samples from passengers and crew for testing, and sent a public health and sanitation manager from the cruise line corporate office to oversee and assist with implementation of the sanitation and outbreak response procedures. Vessel Sanitation Program environmental health officers from the CDC were planning to board the ship when it arrives in Baltimore on April 30 or May 1 to conduct an environmental health assessment and evaluate the outbreak and response.

Engine trouble caused grounding - tugs attend ship after refloating
The "MSC Fabiola" was still blocking traffic at the southern end of the Suez Canal after running aground at canal km 144. Northbound convoys have been suspended on April 28, 2016. The vessel ran into trouble due to an engine blackout en route from Malta to Oman. It was the tenth vessel in the Southbound convoy of 20 vessels, while the rest of Southbound convoy of eight vessels have been detained. The Southbound convoy started at 8 a.m. local time and stopped and waited at Great Bitter Lakes. The ship was refloated on Apr 29 by the tugs „Mosaheb 4“, „Mosaed 4“, „Port Said“, „Baraka I“, „Mosaheb 2“ and „Ezzat Adel“ and was towed to Suez allowing all Soutbound vessels - the remaining eight from 25) to clear the canal following trials. Actually the tugs "Mosaed 4" (IMO: 9581502) and "Port Said" (IMO: 9305984) were connected to the casualty which was still in its position.

MSC Fabiola Grounding Blocks Suez Canal
A ship blocking the Suez canal can cause a major disruption to trade. Ships transit the canal in a convoy system and a prolonged blocking of the canal can cause disruption to the convoy schedule. On Thursday, April 28, 2016, the containership, MSC Fabiola, ran aground in the Suez Canal. Some of the vessels that should all be moving south through the canal can be seen through Genscape Vesseltracker queued up and stationary behind the MSC Fabiola. Some of the vessels that should all be moving south through the canal can be seen queued up and stationary behind the MSC Fabiola. SOURCE: Genscape Vesseltracker Added time to ship voyages is a major expense for shippers, especially those on charter paying daily rates or incurring penalties if voyages over run. The Suez Canal Traffic Statistics site shows the normal volume of traffic through the canal. The Suez Canal is the gateway to Europe for much trade, oil from the Middle East, and containerized shipments from Asia mainly all go through the canal. If the canal is blocked for a long period, then the alternative route between Europe and Asia involves going around the Cape of Good Hope, adding over 4,000 miles to the voyage to most European ports. At 15 Knots, that takes an extra 11 days for the journey between the Arabian Gulf and Europe. As well as saving time, using the canal can save money. The largest single expense for a ship is it’s bunker costs. A large ship doing 15 knots may use 40+ tons of fuel a day and at current bunker rates of about $180 MT this amounts to $72,000 to cover the extra 4,000 miles. Now some of that extra cost would be discounted against canal fees, but it is evident that there are long delays and high costs involved in not using the canal. The MSC Fabiola blocking southbound traffic can impact all ship operators trading between Europe and Asia in all but the very largest ships that can not transit the canal. Anyone from the cruise industry, oil, gas, and containerized trade are also affected. info.genscape.com...

Upon the alert at 4.55 p.m. both ships headed for the position with high speed. One officer aboard the "Uckermark" then remarked several persons who had saved themselves on steep rocks north of Samos and landed three crew members with a daughter boat under dangerous conditions. They found out, that it was a Syrian family, among them three smalll children and one old woman, all in bad physical state. Two more officers were embarked with water and medical supplies, while members of the Greek fire brigade were approaching the site from the shore. Within one hour, all could be recovered from the rocks and transferred onto the "Börde" and later taken to Vathy aboard the "Uckermark". German report with photos: www.presseportal....

Two ferries to be sunk as artificial reefs
The "9 Eylül" 260 gt (IMO-No.: 7364209), and "Alaybey", which have carried passengers in İzmir since 1976 will be sunk off the city’s Karaburun district in an effort to boost diving tourism on Apr 29 and Apr 30, 2016. The ferries have completed their economic life in 2012 after cruising between İzmir’s Karşıyaka and Konak ports. The İzmir Metropolitan Municipality put the ferries up for sale but failed to find a buyer. Finally, they were granted to the Karaburun Municipality. The ferries were cleaned of hazardous materials and will be submerged off the islands of Büyükada and Küçükada in the frame of an artificial reef project initiated in 2008 which had increased the population and species of sea creatures in the region. With the two ferries, diving tourism will progress in Karaburun. Derya Can, who set a world record by diving to 90.2 meters in the southern province of Antalya in 2014, will be the first person to dive into the "9 Eylül".

 New Imperial Star  (Passagierschiff)
vor 1 Tag von Timsen

Captain arrested after fight over a can of coffee
The Ukrainian captain Valery Lyzhyn, 63, and two Chinese crew members of the "New Imperial Star" were arrested on Apr 28 for allegedly being involved in a scuffle over a can of coffee. Lyzhyn sustained injuries to his head, and the kitchen helper’s face was also injured after engaging in a fight together with the stewardess. They were treated at Eastern Hospital and have been detained for police inquiries. The captain who has been aboard the ship since last August, was arrested for assault at lunchtime on along with a 19-year-old Chinese kitchen helper and a 24-year-old stewardess as a fresh supply of food, including six cans of coffee, was dispatched to the ship by the owner. Normally four cans of coffee are provided for the Ukrainian crew, and one can each for the Myanmar and Chinese staff respectively.The situation has grown increasingly fraught on board the casine ship where 46 crew members – of whom 20 were from Ukraine, 18 from Myanmar and eight from the mainland – have been stuck in limbo for half a year after the vessel failed safety inspections. Faced with six months of unpaid wages and an unstable food supply, the crew was becoming impatient and edgy, fighting over almost everything in dire living conditions. The ship’s owner, Arising International Holdings Limited may consider suspending Valeriy Lyzhyn from his duties and finding another replacement as quickly as they can. As most of the crew members have been granted legal aid to take the owner to court for the unpaid wages, the owner has been actively seeking investors to save the vessel from being auctioned off by the city’s marine court. A legal aid lawyer will be assigned in two weeks to assist the crew, but the process could take more than six months. The ship has been detained in local waters one mile off Kai Tak Cruise Terminal since November 2015 after failing safety inspections by local marine officers. The ship owner was accused of failing to pay the crew’s wages, ranging from US$1,300 to US$6,500 per month, for six months, totalling an estimated HK$3 million.

Oil removal expected to be completed start of May
The Environmental Protection Administration expected to finish removing oil on board the "TS Taipei" by May 3 and oil from the coast by May 10, promising the ship would not be dismantled until all the oil on board has been removed. Dozens of tonnes of lubricating oil still remained onboard. Fish catches have decreased significantly since the oil spill, and fishermen have difficulty selling their catch as consumers were concerned about the effect of pollution. The Fisheries Agency Regulation Division has commissioned local fishermen associations to help fishermen file compensation claims, and 31 claims have already been filed. The agency has requested National Taiwan Ocean University to conduct an ecological survey to assess the scope and severity of the pollution to serve as grounds for future compensation claims.

 Herjolfur  (Passagierschiff)

Ferry evacuated after bomb threat
The "Herjólfur" was evacuated in the morning of Apr 28, 2016, following the receipt of a message saying there was a bomb on board. The alert was raised when a member of a group of foreign students on board the ferry received an SMS message while the ferry was en-route between the mainland and Vestmannaeyjar. The text message was a bomb threat against the boat. The student told a teacher, who took the student and phone to report the message to the crew. The crew, in turn, made the police and Coastguard aware of the situation. As soon as the ship docked on the Vestmannaeyjar island of Heimaey, the police evacuated all passengers and crew as quickly as possible. Authorities sealed the ship like a crime scene while the search was carried out. After the search revealed nothing suspicious, it was released back to Eimskip and allowed to continue with its schedule. The police believed the message was left in the onboard Wi-Fi system as a "prank" and that the Scandinavian student who received the message was simply the first person to log into the free Wi-Fi in the morning. Such "prank" messages are apparently a known problem and have occurred in Iceland before.

Cruise company says dredging only choice for big ships in Cairns
DREDGING is the only way Royal Caribbean International will bring its larger cruise ships into the Cairns harbour. The operator has ruled out putting three of their bigger liners through computer simulations to ascertain whether they can safely traverse the shipping channel. A company spokeswoman said their liners were quite simply far too big without dredging the shipping channel. Earlier this week Princess Cruises announced that the 161m long and 77,400-plus tonne Sun Princess, Sea ­Princess and Dawn Princess would no longer have to anchor off Yorkeys Knob and would dock at the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal from June following new simulator exercises. The Royal Caribbean spokeswoman said Rhapsody of the Seas currently held the record for largest ship to dock in Cairns and frequently visited the port until 2015, following the tests. www.cairnspost.co...

World's Largest Viking Ship Sets Sail for the U.S.
The Draken Harald Hårfagre is following the same route thought to have been taken by Leif Erikson around 1,000 years ago. There was once a time when the sight of a Viking "Great Ship" on the horizon would cause mass hysteria, because it generally meant impending doom. But when the Draken Harald Hårfagre arrives in Duluth, Minnesota in August, just in time for the annual Tall Ships Festival,( tallshipsduluth.com/) it will be cause for celebration. The world's largest Viking ship took sail on Saturday from its home port of Haugesund, Norway, and will be making its way across the Atlantic, stopping at ports in Iceland, Greenland, Canada, and the United States. Once in the U.S., the Draken Harald Hårfagre will go through the Great Lakes to Duluth for the festival, and then loop back to New York City and Connecticut. Captain Björn Ahlander is commanding a crew of 32 men and women who will be tracing the approximate route that Leif Erikson—thought to be the first European to land in North America—took roughly 1,000 years ago. The organizers of the voyage have been working on the ship since 2010, delving into archaeological findings and ancient Norse lore to make sure their oak rendition was as close to the real thing as possible. At 114-feet long and 27-feet wide, and sporting a 3,200-square-foot sail, the Draken Harald Hårfagre is the largest Viking ship built in modern times, according to its website. www.drakenexpedit...

Blacklisted Oil Tanker Returns to Libya
An Indian-flagged oil tanker is returning to Libya, the North African country's rival oil corporation said on Thursday, after its failed first attempt to export crude oil led to the ship being blacklisted by the United Nations Security Council. The Distya Ameya tanker is heading to the western Libyan port of Zawiya, said Nagi al-Maghrabi, chairman of the National Oil Corporation (NOC) set up by Libya's rival eastern government in parallel to the Tripoli-based NOC. The Tripoli NOC is recognized internationally as the legitimate seller of Libyan oil. Magrabi told Reuters he would continue to fight for the right of the eastern NOC to export crude, describing the situation as "a legal issue and we will work on it." www.marinelink.co...

First cruise from U.S. to Cuba in over 50 years to set sail Sunday
After navigating a sea of controversy over a now-rescinded ban on travelers born in Cuba, the Carnival Corp. ship Adonia is set to weigh anchor for Havana on Sunday afternoon, becoming the first cruise ship to make the voyage to the island from the United States in more than 50 years. About 700 passengers — including at least a few native Cubans — are expected to be aboard for the historic sailing under the banner of Carnival's Fathom brand, which markets cruises aimed at travelers more interested in cultural involvement than conventional tourism. In the first of what it calls social impact cruises, Fathom in mid-April docked in the Dominican Republic, where passengers volunteered to work with locals in planting trees and making water filters during a week-long visit. www.sun-sentinel....

vor 2 Tagen von Timsen

Vessel arrested over unpaid replacement bunkers
The "Kinatsi" was arrested in New Orelans. The dispute, which was filed earlier this month with the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division, arose after Monjassa sold 150 metric tonnes (mt) of IFO bunkers and 50 mt of MGO to charterer Tami Project Inc. of Liberia in October of 2015, for prices of $33,751.35 and $55,751.79 respectively. While the parties agreed for payment to be made within 45 days, Tami (which had requested the bunkers) failed to follow through, and instead raised a dispute over the quality of some of the bunkers. Around Jan 20 Monjasa agreed to remove and replace the IFO supplied to the vessel on a strictly without prejudice basis, credited the original IFO stem, and then invoiced Tami $33,210 for the new bunkers. Of this sum, Monjasa claims $23,357 is still outstanding, with Tami said to have made only a partial payment. With interest this amounts to $27,235.29 – which is the amount the company is seeking in court. An arrest warrant was served by the court for the M/V Kinatsi on Apr 22, 2016. Documents submitted by Monjasa to support its claim include the company’s terms and conditions, which states that it reserves the right to pursue all legal remedies available to recover outstanding debt, including the right to impose a maritime lien on vessels until payment and interest has been received.

On Apr 27 the "Distya Ameya" was added to a United Nations sanctions blacklist for illegally carrying crude from Libya. The vessel was headed for Malta after leaving on Apr 25 from eastern Libya, where rival authorities were behind the sale of the crude. The decision would mean that port authorities in Malta or in any other destination country would have to impound the tanker on arrival. The vessel may have been sold recently and its name changed to Kassos. On Apr 26, the tanker was north of Al-Bayda and headed in the direction of Malta. The cargo was in violation of a ban on oil revenues to entities other than Libya’s new unity government. The tanker was listed for “transporting crude oil illicitly exported from Libya, based on information received from the government of Libya”.

The "Steren Mor - MX.690916", 89 gt, reached the port of Douarnenez escorted by the offshore tug "VN Sapeur" (IMO: 8304816) on Apr 28 at 2.50 a.m. On Apr 26 at 10 p.m. the maritime prefect of the Atlantic had demanded the owner to stop the danger arising from the drifting gillnetter within 24 hours. On Apr 27 at midnight at midnight the operational center of the navy at Brest ordered the "VN Sapeur", being chartered by the Navy, to leave he port of Brest and mark the position of the drifting ship which had no navigations on. It was on scene at 6.35 a.m. and found it slightly down by the bow but in so far stable condition. The decision was then taken to airlift an assessment and intervention team of the Navy equipped with a bilge pump in preparation of a towing operation. The team was hoisted aboard at 12:26 by a Caiman helicopter from the naval base Lanvéoc. The pumping operation commenced immediately. The engine and electric generator were still operational, and the ship was taken in tow towards Aber Wrac'h. In the late afternoon the crew of the "Steren More" could be returned aboard by an SNSM boat. They reclaimed the ship which sailed to the port of Brest and then on to Rosmeur. The ship was escorted by the "Portsaillaise" and "VN Sapeur". The ship was hauled out of the water and repaired in Rosmeur, Douarnenez.

Tug in difficulties off Scheveningen
On Apr 26, 2016, the Scheveningen KNRM rescue station was notified by the Coast Guard of the "Mtide Taurus" which seemed to have been in difficulties off Scheveningen. The ship was moored in the anchorage area but had moved from the earlier position about 2 ½ miles towards the Dutch coast by strong NW wind force 8 and waves of four meters or more. Attempts to contact the vessel by VHF channels 16 and 21 by the Coast Guard and the traffic control center Scheveningen proved to be very difficult, and it was uncertain what was going on board. It was indicated that the captain was ill. Because the ship's strange behavior it was decided to send the lifeboat "Kitty Roosmale Nepveu" out. When arriving at the position of the "Mtide Taurus", the vessel was at that moment just behind the first line of surf, it was found that the starboard anchor was dropped, while the ship turned around with his port side engine working to reduce force on the anchor. Again the tug was called via VHF channel 67. The captain indicated that they were trying to find deeper water, because on the actual position the ship would be pushed through the surf towards the coast and continue drifting. When the starboard anchor chain almost out, the lifeboat guided the tug to a new position that was specified by the traffic center in Scheveningen. Arriving at that position, a lot further off the coast, the portside anchor of the tug was dropped. When the tug was safely moored, the lifeboat returned to Scheveningen.

As part of its continued growth, £3.2m has been invested in three 24.6m tall rubber tyre gantry cranes (RTGs) which each weigh 141 tonnes and can lift containers weighing up to 40 tonnes and stack them five-high. The new cranes join an additional four RTGs which have been operational since the expansion of Teesport Container Terminal 2 in 2011. Manufactured by Liebherr Container Cranes at its factories in Ireland and Spain, they were transported in several sections by sea. To further increase capacity at Teesport and position it as market leader in UK port logistics, an order worth more than £6m has also been placed with Liebherr for a ship to shore crane at Teesport to complement the two already in operation. www.hellenicshipp...

Route rationalisation hits Vizag Port
The ban on movement of cargo on certain routes by the Railway Board, as part of ‘route rationalisation’, has proved to be the bane for cargo movement through Visakhapatnam. According to the route rationalisation, freight trains from Visakhapatnam to Nagpur have to travel through Vijayawada and Ballarshah, instead of the shortest route via Raipur. This is a huge burden for exports and imports through Visakhapatnam Port. Though Visakhapatnam Port is closer to Nagpur than JNPT, exporters and importers are forced to move their cargo through the latter port due to the extra cost and time. For cargo coming from South East Asia, Visakhapatnam is the convenient port of call. Otherwise, the ships have to travel for at least three more days to reach the West Coast to unload their cargo. www.hellenicshipp...

Although divers tried to inspect the hull on Apr 26, the visibility in the port was extremely limited and it was believed that the ferry has hit bottom. Meanwhile floating anti-pollution barriers have been set up, as there appeared to be some fuel in the ferry boat that could potentially leak out into the sea. Antipollution crews have laid out 400 meters of floating booms to contain possible sea pollution from petrol liquid spills.

After the crew has been able to see just how the VDR was oriented relative to the mast structure, it was clear that they were going to need specialized deep-water salvage recovery equipment in order to bring it up. Extracting a recorder capsule attached to a four-ton mast under 15,000 feet of water presents formidable challenges, but the NTSB intended to do everything that is technically feasible to get that recorder into their lab. No exact time frame has been released for a third mission, but investigators said they hoped it would be in the next several months.

Norwegian Cruise Line said: ‘During Norwegian Breakaway’s 7-night Bahamas cruise from New York that departed on April 17,2016, one female guest did not return to the vessel by the widely communicated scheduled all aboard time of 5:30 pm during the ship’s call in Nassau, Bahamas on April 21. The onboard team located her husband and children on board but the family was not able to reach her nor did they know when she would be returning. Due to the circumstances, the ship went beyond normal protocol and waited alongside an additional half an hour for the guest. When she had still not returned and following consultation with the family, it was decided that the husband would disembark with their travel documents to wait for his wife while the children would stay with their uncle and his family on the ship for the remainder of the voyage. The company offered travel and lodging assistance to the couple and arrangements were made for them to reunite with the ship upon her return to New York on April 24.’ Report with video: metro.co.uk/2016/...

Royal Caribbean Gives Full Refund and Credit to Passengers Affected by Rogue Wave
Rhapsody of the Seas was on the first night of a nine night Mediterranean cruise when a rogue wave hit the ship and broke five cabin windows on Deck 3. Six staterooms were damaged and water flooded the hallway and cabins on the deck. Repairs were made to the ship while the vessel was docked in Ajaccio, Corsica, the first port stop of the cruise. There were 89 passengers on the cruise affected by the flooding. Royal Caribbean was able to move 45 guests to different staterooms, but the other 44 passengers had to depart the ship and end their cruise early. The cruise line paid for all airfare and hotel costs for the passengers who had to leave the ship. Royal Caribbean is taking care of the passengers who were affected by giving them a full refund and a future cruise certificate for 100% of the cruise fare that they paid for the current cruise. There are no reported injuries. cruisefever.net/0...

Majority of cruise ships making stops in Sitka this summer will be coming in to dock
Holland America Line has agreed to tie all its ships up at the Old Sitka Dock, meaning 45 ships will be bringing tourists directly to shore. This is a big change from years past, where Holland America ferried their passengers to town via tender boat. The news of the big cruise line tying up in town was music to the ears of Fred Reeder, the port director of Cruise Line Agencies of Alaska in Sitka. “Oh, I am ecstatic,” Reeder said. “Doing 20 years of riding tenders, I mean we’re talking in the tens of thousands of tender boats I’ve ridden, I’m happy not to get on another tender.” www.alaskapublic....

Royal Caribbean Crew Members Smuggled Cocaine from St. Maartan to Port Canaveral
WFTV ABC 9 from Orlando reports yesterday evening (April 26) that two Royal Caribbean crew members were arrested for cocaine smuggling cocaine aboard the Freedom of the Seas into Port Canaveral. One of the Royal Caribbean crew members identified is Junior Ellision, age 31. The news station said that when "Ellision left the ship, he took a shuttle to a Merritt Island Walmart. Authorities said Ellision would pick up sandals filled with cocaine in St. Maarten and would wear them off the ship. Ellision would then go to the Walmart, buy a pair of sandals, and then put the cocaine filled sandals in the Walmart bag to deliver to someone else." The other Royal Caribbean crew member, also from the Freedom of the Seas, is identified as Sheldon Grant. We do not know the job positions or the home countries of these two ship employees. WFTV reports that the two crew members admitted that "they had made multiple deliveries and that someone paid them $1,250 each time" that they delivered the drugs. www.cruiselawnews...

Jordan denies British cruise ship over norovirus fears
Aqaba authorities have prevented a cruise ship carrying nearly 2,000 British tourists from entering the southern port city, as some passengers are infected with the norovirus, an official said Tuesday. Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority Commissioner for Economic Development and Investment Affairs Sharhabeel Madi told The Jordan Times that authorities had been aware that the virus was detected among the tourists since Sunday, when the ship was on its way to the Kingdom, noting that the cruiser was not allowed to enter Jordan’s territorial waters. “After receiving information from the cruise tour operator and the maritime agent that the ship is carrying several infected tourists, the Jordan Maritime Authority consulted the Health Ministry and decided to ban the ship from entering Jordanian waters to protect citizens from the virus,” Madi said. According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, norovirus, also known as winter vomiting disease, causes gastroenteritis and is highly infectious. The virus is easily transmitted through contact with infected individuals from one person to another.

Doing so is violating copyright laws and our subscription conditions: shippingwatch.com... A project manager from the Maersk Group's port and terminal unit APM Terminals in Angola was kidnapped a few days ago. He was held captive for four days before he was released. ShippingWatch was informed about the case Monday night. Today, the Maersk Group confirms the following: "Maersk Group can confirm an employee was abducted in Angola and held captive for four days and that he has been released unharmed. The Maersk Group is supporting him and his family with the necessary support in this difficult time. Due to the ongoing investigation by local authorities and the security of our employees, the Maersk Group will not be providing any further details. We kindly ask that this and the privacy of our colleague are respected and protected," Maersk says in a statement. According to ShippingWatch's sources, the case concerns a French employee in joint venture Sogester, Sociedade Gestora de Terminais, S.A, a terminal company owned by Maersk and an Angolan partner. The employee was allegedly kidnapped on Tuesday when he was en route from his home to Sogester's inland terminal in Viana. Sources say the employee was released on Saturday, possible following payment of a ransom, though it has not been able to confirm this. This marks the second time in just a short period of time that Maersk has been the target of criminal activities in West Africa. shippingwatch.com...

D’Amico refuses first supramax delivery from Yangfan
The last supramax bulk carrier built by China’s Yangfan and renamed SM Emerald has been sold to Korea Line because d’Amico Società di Navigazione of Italy refused to take delivery of the newbuilding due to late delivery and technical problems. That is what sources familiar with the matter reported to Splash while neither d’Amico nor Yangfan would comment. The ship, part of a six-unit order signed in 2013, is now valued at $15.5m while the original price was some $25m. The second ship is scheduled for delivery soon and the other two units during the coming summer. Another two supramax bulk carriers from the same order were recently switched by d’Amico into containerships with delivery set for 2017. At the moment it is unclear whether the shipbuilding cancellation by d’Amico will bring a legal dispute between Yangfan and the Rome-based shipping company but it seems unlikely since the Italian owner has a further two handysize open hatch bulk carriers under construction and the two parties have had very good and long standing business relationship until now. splash247.com/dam...

Mammoet builds jetty for Saudi terminal
With transport for a project for Saudi Aramco in the remote south west of Saudi Arabia facing numerous obstacles for moves between an existing port and the job site, Mammoet built a new jetty, allowing for direct site access.Aramco's Jizan refinery is due to start production in 2017, and will process 400,000 barrels of crude per day. The closest port to the site is 100km away, and the 100 large and heavy transports required would involve passing a range of obstacles, including overhead powerlines and bridges.Mammoet worked with the client to develop an alternative route. In order to simplify the logistics of getting these oversized components to site, a tailor made jetty next to the project site was constructed. Mammoet helped the client to design the jetty, using engineering drawings of the transport to ensure that the jetty has the right dimensions and structure to cope with the size and weight of the components. Mammoet provided technical information for the road design between the jetty and the project site to accommodate the heavy items. Mammoet's early involvement in the planning and design of the logistics for these components will minimize the risks along the route, reducing the chance of delays. The first components were delivered to site using the new jetty in October 2015, with more arriving regularly since then, including two components weighing over 1,000t. source : cranes

Maersk opens direct Cork-Cuba shipping service
Shipping giant Maersk Line has opened a direct service between Cork and Cuba. The move will enable Irish companies to capitalise on an expected boom resulting from the normalisation of relationships between the United States and Havana.The recent easing of economic sanctions against the Caribbean island by President Barack Obama has led to a flurry of investment there by US firms. Now Irish companies are getting the opportunity to increase business with the Communist country with the introduction of the service, which will call at Mariel, a port located about 40km from the Cuban capital.The service is an expansion of the shipping company’s existing CRX Latin American route, which connects Mexico and Costa Rica directly with Europe. That route, which was reintroduced in 2011, already calls at Cork.The new port of Cork-Mariel route will boast the fastest transit times in the market, connecting European exporters and importers to Maersk’s network of feeder connections. These include a weekly service to the island’s second biggest city, Santiago de Cuba.Maersk, the world’s largest container shipping company, is expected to announce full details of the expanded service in the coming days. Six vessels with an average capacity of 2,545 20ft equivalent units are expected to operate on the expanded route. Source: Irishtimes

 El Faro  (Frachtschiff)

Data recorder of El Faro found
The "El Faro"’s voyage data recorder was located in the early morning of Apr 26, 2016, in 15,000 feet of water, about 41 miles northeast of Acklins and Crooked Islands, Bahamas, by a team of investigators and scientists using remotely operated undersea search equipment. The investigative team was comprised of specialists from the National Transportation Safety Board, the U.S. Coast Guard, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Tote Services, the owner and operator of the "El Faro". At about 1 a.m. EDT, the team aboard the research vessel "Atlantis" located the "El Faro"’s mast where the VDR was mounted. After examining numerous images provided by undersea search equipment, the team positively identified the VDR. The find would not have been possible without the information gained during the first survey of the wreckage and the equipment and support provided by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Navy, the University of Rhode Island, and the many other partners involved in this effort. The mission, in which more advanced sonar and imagery systems were deployed, launched from Charleston, S.C., Apr 18. The mission platform "Atlantis" is owned by the Navy and operated by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The next step in the ongoing investigation is to determine how the VDR can be retrieved. The "Atlantis" will stay at the accident site through April 30 while the team continues the photo and video documentation of the sunken ship and debris field before returning to Woods Hole, Mass., May 5. As part of the mission, the Inner Space Center at the University of Rhode Island assisted investigators in Washington by establishing a telepresence in the NTSB lab to view underwater imagery in real time and to collaborate with the team on the Atlantis. Video of the VDR on the ocean floor recorded on April 26: youtube.com/watch?v=Z_tyxF4kLnE For more information about the NTSB’s investigation of the loss of the El Faro, visit go.usa.gov/cuDfV.

Rogue wave damaged cruise ship
On Apr 25, 2016, around 4 a.m. while sailing to Ajaccio, the "Rhapsody of the Seas" encountered inclement weather. Five stateroom windows on the third deck were broken, resulting in water incursion. Six rooms were damaged, and carpeting in some nearby hallways and staterooms on deck three was soaked by water. No serious injuries were reported. The windows were replaced and the ship resumed her itinerary. Because of the soaked flooring, which could not be immediately replaced without causing great inconvenience, 45 guests were relocated to other staterooms, and 44 departed the ship in Corsica. They were compensated with a full refund and future cruise certificate in the total amount of the cruise fare they paid for their sailing, as well as handling accommodations and travel costs for those who left the ship. The "Rhapsody of the Seas" continued to its scheduled port of call at Corsica but stayed until 12 a.m. to fix the damage. The vessel was sailing a 9-night Mediterranean and Adriatic cruise and arrived in Naples on schedule on April 27.
