 Majed And Randy  (General Cargo Ship)

Freighter violates UN Crimea sanctions
In response to the annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia, the European Union has published Regulation 692/2014 of 23 June 2014, introducing trade sanctions in respect of goods originating in Crimea or Sevastopol and on the provision, directly or indirectly, of financing or financial assistance, as well as insurance and reinsurance, related to the import of such goods. General cargo vessel Majed and Randy was docked in Sevastopol port, at grain terminal Avlita, from July 15 till July 17. Vessel is sailing to Famagusta port, Northern Cyprus. According to official statements of Rosselkhoznadzor (Agriculture State Agency of Russia), Crimea is exporting its’ grain to Saudi Arabia and Northern Cyprus. EU sanctions emphasize on grain exports, hence direct violation, made by m/v Majed and Randy and her owners. All those who’d consider Majed and Randy for chartering should take into account all risks involved. Vessel may be arrested or detained in ports of Ukraine or EU, especially considering latest developments in Ukrainian crisis (Malaysia Airlines Flight tragedy). Vessel most probably, is operated by an Egyptian company, which either doesn’t know about sanctions, or found offer impossible to reject. One more guess is, Russian/Crimean grain traders can make deal or deals with shipowners, chartering their vessels purposefully for Crimean grain shipments, at exorbitant freight rates. Owner may exploit vessel exclusively on Crimea grain shipments, and after that, sold it or put in a lay-up. Crimea, according to Russian authorities, may export up to 500,000 tons of grain this season. So maybe, it’s worth it. Source: www.news.odin.tc/...

Costa Concordia Tow Delayed by Heavy Seas
The massive wreck of the Costa Concordia is nearly ready to be towed away from the Italian island, officials said on Sunday.

Sembawang Shipyard to convert Antarctica to FPSO offshore Angola for Total
Three months after winning the $4 billion project to supply and operate a pair of FPSOs offshore Angola for Total, Saipem has selected Sembcorp Marine’s Sembawang Shipyard to undertake the S$600 million (USD $483.2 million) project to convert two ~315,000 ton deadweight Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs) into two turret-moored FPSOs. The Olympia and Antarctica are currently owned by Euronav and were built in 2008 and 2009, respectively, by Hyundai Heavy Industries. Olympia is expected to enter Sembawang Shipyard in third quarter 2014 while Antarctica, will arrive in 1Q 2015. The scope of work includes refurbishment of the tankers, construction engineering, the fabrication of flare, helideck, upper turret and access structure, integration of the topsides modules (which will be fabricated at Saipem’s Karimun Island Yard) and lower turret components, and pre-commissioning of the FPSOs. The two converted FPSOs will each have an oil treating capacity of 115,000 barrels per day, a water injection capacity of 200,000 barrels per day, a 100 million scfd gas compression capacity and a storage capacity of 1.7 million barrels of oil.

Costa Concordia readies for final voyage on Tuesday
The four-day journey to the port of Genoa for the 290-metre (951-foot) vessel -- roughly twice the size of the Titanic -- will be the last step in the biggest salvage operation of a passenger ship ever carried out. "This is the finish line that all our citizens, Italians and the world, have been waiting for. Let's keep our fingers crossed," said Sergio Ortelli, the mayor of Giglio Island, a fishing community of just 1,500 residents that has been overrun by hundreds of salvage workers since 2012. The ship will be dragged at a speed of just two knots (3.7 kilometres) per hour by two tug boats -- a Dutch vessel and a Vanuatu-flagged one -- and 12 other vessels will make up the convoy accompanying the giant ship. The towing will begin after the arrival of a ferry from the mainland at 0630 GMT and engineers said it would take up to six hours to drag the 114,500-tonne ship into position. A 12-person team of salvage workers will be on the Costa Concordia itself during the journey and an evacuation plan is in place for them in case of an accident. South African salvage master Nick Sloane said this was the "biggest challenge" of a career that has taken him to accidents at sea in six continents and two warzones. The ship has been raised by six metres so far since the refloating operation began on July 14 and salvage engineers said they were aiming to float it by a further four to tow it through the Corsica Channel and on to northwest Italy.
