 Kea Trader  (Cargo Ship)

Small spill from tanks of grounded Kea Trader
Salvors from the Dutch firm Ardent were preparing to pump bunkers and lubricants off the "Kea Trader". Transfer operations were expected to begin later this week. The New Caledonia government authorities said on July 24 that a release of emulsified oil, probably from bilges, was detected following rough sea conditions over the weekend. Experts’ estimates put the amount in the range of 100 liters or less. Given its light nature, the product naturally dispersed by the mechanical action of the movements of the sea,leaving nothing behind to clean up. As a precautionary measure, anti-spill equipment was on site, with more available at the naval base in Noumea. On July 24 about three dozen people involved in the recovery mission were at the scene or on shore nearby, plus the vessel's crew. The personnel included two experts from the Brest Center for Expertise in Pollution Control (CEPPOL). Five vessels and three barges were also in attendance, and more were under way. Ardent has been hired using the SCOPIC clause in the Lloyd's Form of Salvage Agreement. The clause guarantees the recovery of the salvor's expenses, but it reduces the maximum potential award for a successful salvage.

Cargo handling at the port of Kiel in HI’17 up 20 % to record 3.7 million tons
The port of Kiel says it is very much on target for growth and has posted its best half-year results to date. In the first six months of 2017 the port’s varied facilities handled 3.7 million tons of goods, topping the total in the same period of the previous year by 20 %. Dr Dirk Claus, Managing Director of the Port of Kiel (SEEHAFEN KIEL GmbH & Co. KG) said: “the taking into service of the SCA Logistics Centre in Kiel’s Ostuferhafen has already shown it is having a lasting impact on growth and providing the planned impetus which justifies our investment.” Some 400,000 tons of high-value timber products were handled and stored for new customers Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget (SCA) and Iggesund Paperboard in the first half of the year. “This very good result is all the more significant because Kiel was also able to post increases in its other handling sectors – ferry traffic and bulk goods”, said Dirk Claus. Even without taking the SCA traffic into consideration, Kiel’s handling performance still rose by a remarkable 7.6 %. According to the port’s press release, in the first half year of 2017 bulk goods handling rose by a gratifying 18.7 % to well over 550,000 tons. Alongside fuels like coal and oils, significant increases were also posted in the handling of building materials, grain and scrap metals. In the ferry sector, the Stena Line in particular upped turnover – by 12.8 % - and is ranked number two on the list of Kiel’s most important freight customers after DFDS. Surprisingly, trade with Russia, which has been severely disrupted in the past few years by trade restrictions, also showed a slight revival. “We are now creating additional warehousing capacities in the Ostuferhafen, in order to stabilise the positive development in trade with Russia”, said Dirk Claus. Currently taking shape in the immediate vicinity of the berth used by ships on the St Petersburg route, is the 5,000 m² Shed 12, planned as a warehouse for sawn timber. In container business, which is of only minor significance in Kiel, 13,400 TEUs were handled – an increase of 19.3 %.

 Remoy  (Fishing Boat)

Trawler captain finded with one million Euro
Captain Ketil Ervik was not present in court, but a Norwegian lawyer representing the company and representatives from Norway’s Consulate General were present when the court on July 19 announced its ruling, a fine of €1 million. Additionally, the company that owns the “Remøy” was fined €2 millon. The fine must be paid within 60 days. The original claims against the company amounted to almost €9.3 millions, a sum based on the market price of the shrimps caught by the trawler during its three weeks of fishing in Russian waters this spring. The “Remøy” was arrested by the Russian Coast Guard on May 11 and taken to Murmansk. The crew had to stay on board for some weeks before being allowed to travel back to Norway. The Norwegian Fishery Directorate soon confirmed that an administrative error on the Norwegian side had been the reason for the detention of the «Remøy». The trawler had applied for license to shrimp catch as part of a Norwegian quota in Russian waters. The license was issued, however the documents submitted by the Directorate to the Russian side included mistakes. The Russian prosecutors however still argue that the Norwegian captain failed to comply with Russian regulations and that he was personally responsible of double-checking the permissions issued. After hectic diplomatic efforts, the ship was on June 2 allowed to leave back to Norway after three weeks of arrest in Murmansk.
