 Ronja Viking  (Fishing Vessel > Fish Carrier)
vor 429 Tagen von Timsen

Disabled fish carrier towed to Mallaig
The Islay RNLI all-weather lifeboat "Helmut Schroder" of Dunlossit was called to the aid of the "Ronja Viking" which had suffered engine failure within the Sound of Islay and was drifting on a flood tide off Port Askaig towards the north end of the Sound of Islay on Dec 10, 2016. With a crew of seven, the lifeboat proceeded at best speed to the location. En route the "Ronja Viking" was contacted and it was established that her captain had been in contact with her sister ship, the "Ronja Commander", asking for a tow but as she was half an hour away lifeboat assistance was called for to connect a tow and hold her in position. The tow was prepared and passed to the disabled vessel and secured before the considerable weight was taken up to hold theship in position in the sheltered waters of the Sound of Islay while awaiting the sister ship’s arrival. The captain’s intention was to be towed to Mallaig where he would be able to discharge his cargo and effect repairs to his vessel. The "Ronja Commander" arrived on the scene and manoeuvred alongside the disabled vessel where the crew worked to pass and secure a tow while the lifeboat held the vessel’s head to the tide. With the tow now securely taken up by the "Ronja Commander" the lifeboat was able to recover her tow and return to the station.

vor 429 Tagen von Timsen

Grounding on maiden voyage
What was supposed to be the maiden voyage of the "Fastcat M11" bound for Cebu was cut short when it ran aground minutes after it left the Tubigon port in Bohol in the early evening of Dec 15, 2016. There was shaking and a loud noise before the captain announced the vessel had actually run aground. Although the engine stopped, the lights on the vessel were still working. The vessel was ferrying 69 people, including crew members and captain Vicion Cadlina. The ship, also carrying some cargo, departed the port at around 5:50 p.m. only to hit the rocky seabed 20 minutes into its travel. As of 8:30 p.m. the vessel remained stuck +five nautical miles away from Tubigon port when it ran aground..+ However, all passengers were safe. Members of the Philippine Coast Guard based in Tubigon were in the area to assist passengers who wanted to go back to the port. But most passengers opted to stay onboard the vessel and waited for the sea level to rise, expectedly at around 10 p.m., as advised by the vessel's captain. But before 10 p.m. the vessel already was floating again and sailed back to Tubigon port as per instruction of the PCG. The Tagbilaran station will investigate the incident.

Expanded Panama Canal welcomes its 500th Neopanamax ship transit
Less than six months after the inauguration of the Expanded Panama Canal, the waterway welcomed its 500th transit of a Neopanamax ship on Wednesday, highlighting the trust that Canal customers have placed in the route, ACP said in a press release. Performing the 500th transit was the container vessel YM Unity, which first began its passage through the Cocoli Locks in the Pacific and then headed north towards the Agua Clara Locks. Built in 2006, the YM Unity (of the Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation) measures 335.7 meters in length and 42.8 meters in beam and has a carrying capacity of 8,200 TEUs. The ship is traveling from Asia and will stop at Colon Container Terminal in Panama before heading to U.S. ports. Its transit marks a significant milestone for the Expanded Canal, which is experiencing a steady flow of traffic—including containerships, liquid petroleum gas (LPG) vessels, dry bulk carriers, vehicle carriers, crude product tankers and liquefied natural gas (LNG) vessels, which is a new market segment for the Canal.

MSC Paloma Becomes The Largest Container Vessel To Transit The Adriatic
14,000 TEU container ship MSC Paloma is by far the largest container vessel that has ever entered the Adriatic Sea; until now the record was held by last year’s MSC Luciana with the capacity of 11,660 TEU. Although not the longest, MSC Paloma is with its 51 meters the widest container vessel ever moored in Koper. It arrived from Piraeus and will continue its journey to Trieste. MSC Paloma is part of 2M alliance which links North Adriatic with the Far East. Other than the Swiss shipping company MSC, the alliance is comprised of the Danish Maersk, i.e. the two largest container lines in the world which are ranked at the top in terms of TEUs handled also in Koper. Paloma which has the maximum draught of 16 metres came to Koper with 12.6 m draught and it will unload/load a total of 3,600 TEU. www.marineinsight...

 Aurora Af Helsingbor  (Passenger Ship > Passenger Ro Ro Cargo Ship)
vor 429 Tagen von arnekiel

Aurora to be converted into the world’s largest emission-free ferry
The project to convert two passenger ferries into the world’s largest emission-free ferries is gaining pace after Öresund Dry Docks of Sweden was selected to carry out the work. The project to convert the ferries, operated by HH Ferries, is led by Swiss power company ABB and is co-financed by INEA, the EU’s executive agency for innovation and network. For the project, both the MF Tycho Brahe and MF Aurora will be fitted with 4.16 MW battery packs that will allow them to operate 100% on battery power between Helsingør (Denmark) and Helsingborg (Sweden), a distance of approximately 4 km carrying more than 7.4 Million passengers and 1.9 million vehicles annually. Both ferries are 111 meters in length and can carry 1,250 passengers and about 240 cars. The conversions are expected to begin in February 2017 when the containers with the battery racks are loaded onto the ferries. Dry-docking of the first vessel, Tycho Brahe, will begin in April and it will start operating as a fully electric ferry immediately when work is completed. Aurora will undergo the same process in October 2017.

 Seamusic  (Oil And Chemical Tanker > Crude Oil Tanker)
vor 429 Tagen von arnekiel

Libya’s Biggest Oil Port, Field Said Poised to Reopen This Week
Libya is preparing this week to reopen two of its biggest oil fields and ship the first cargo from its largest export terminal in two years, as the war-torn OPEC state pursues plans to almost double crude output in 2017. Repsol SA-operated Sharara, Libya’s largest oil field, and the El Feel, or Elephant, deposit run by Eni SpA will soon start pumping crude to the Zawiya refinery and the Mellitah energy complex after pipelines reopened Wednesday, Mansur Abdullah, manager of the refinery’s oil movement, said by phone. The two western fields have been closed for more than a year and a half and have a combined output capacity of more than 450,000 barrels a day. The tanker Seamusic is scheduled to arrive at the port of Es Sider on Friday to take on the first crude for overseas shipment from the terminal since 2014, Adnan Omran, general manager of Al Omran International Maritime Agencies, said by phone. The vessel will load 630,000 barrels of Es Sider crude, he said. The destination of the cargo is not yet confirmed and it’s unclear if the port will continue to export.

 Caledonian  (Fishing Vessel)
vor 429 Tagen von Timsen

TSB report on sinking of Caledonian released
Six weeks after it warned of a systemic problem of “vessel modifications and their impact on stability in the Canadian commercial fishing industry, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada found that the operating practices of othe "Caledonian" that capsized and sunk on Sep 5, 2016, was different from those presented in its stability booklet. The TSB Report was released during a news conference in Steveston, B.C. Wednesday, on Dec. 14, 2016. After the Caledonian sunk off the coast of Vancouver Island, three of the four crew members died and only the survivor was wearing a personal floatation device. In September, 2015, the "Caledonian" was trawling for hake about 20 kilometers west of Nootka Sound, B.C., reported TSB, which is separate from Transport Canada and investigates incident in aviation, railways, pipelines and marine. Built in 1974, the "Caledonian" was a 100-foot vessel owned by Caledonian Holdings Inc. of North Vancouver, British Columbia Below the main deck was the engine room (located forward), 6 fish holds (3 on each side), and 8 fuel tanks (4 on each side). There were also freshwater tanks located below the forward fish holds. At some point after 1998, Tthe tank configuration was changed, and the fuel tanks in the engine room were converted to freshwater tanks. The 2 fuel tanks below the forward fish holds were no longer used, and the 2 fuel tanks below the centre fish holds were used to store fuel for the 2 fuel tanks at the stern, which were the only tanks used to supply the main engine with fuel. At about 2:00 p.m. on Sep. 5, 2015, the crew of the "Caledonian" prepared to haul in the trawl. This involved adding seawater to the ice in the 2 centre holds so that they were filled halfway. At this time, the vessel had a slight port list. After the crew stored a bag of hake, the port list began to increase. Another bag of hake was pulled up the trawlway and was partially suspended from the boom. The deck hatch cover for the centre port hold had remained off after the initial bag had been stowed. The vessel was now trimmed by the stern and listed further to port, causing additional seawater to ship onto the deck, submerging nearly half of the trawl door. Eventually, about half a meter of water covered the deck and the vessel capsized. After the capsizing, the master stayed with the vessel and climbed onto the overturned hull. Shortly after the capsizing, the master saw the engineer in the water and called out, but there was no response. Nearly an hour later, the mate, who was wearing a PFD when the vessel capsized, managed to swim back to the overturned hull to join the master. The vessel sank about 10:00 p.m. The master and mate jumped into the water and the mate reached life raft, climbed inside and was later rescued. In its report, TSB has issued a new recommendation that Transport Canada require persons to wear suitable personal flotation devices at all times when on the deck of a commercial fishing vessel or when on board a commercial fishing vessel without a deck or deck structure and that the Department of Transport ensure programs are developed to confirm compliance.

 Atlantic Quest  (Fishing Vessel)
vor 429 Tagen von Timsen

Fishing vessel towed to Killybegs
The lifeboat of the Arranmore RNLI rescued four fishermen after the "Atlantic Quest" got into difficulty on Dec 15, 2016, off the Donegal coast while travelling from Greencastle to Killybegs. The crew of the vessel raised the alarm before 7 a.m. after the vessel developed steering problems some six nautical miles from Killybegs. The all-weather lifeboat launched and made its way to the scene which was approximately a 1,5 hours journey from Arranmore. Once on scene, the volunteer lifeboat crew put a rope onboard the boat and worked with the fishermen to set up a tow line. However, due to a swell up to a metre and a half and south to south westerly Force 6-7 winds, the tow rope broke following set up. Once it was re-established, the lifeboat proceeded at slow speed due to the size of the fishing vessel, and made its way to Killybegs where it arrived with the vessel in tow at 11 a.m.
