Fire in engine room
In the afternoon of July 4, 2016, a fire broke out in the engine room of the "Magnolia", 2130 ts (EU-No.: 04800310), underneath the Main lock at Gustavsburg. Witnesses had remarked smoke emerging from the unloaded ship which was moored at the Main shore at 2.30 p.m. and notified the crew which sealed the openings of the engine room, shut down all engines and aggregates and alerted the fire rescue before saving themselves onto the shore. The fire brigades from Wiesbaden, Ginsheim-Gustavsburg, Bischofheim, as well as forces of the life saving Society DLRG, divers and the fire boat "Hecht" from Gernsheim attended. A squad under respirator could put out the fire with a carbon tube quickly. For extensive ventilation and damping-down more teams were used. For about an hour the ship traffic on the Main and the lock was blocked. German reports with photos: www.wiesbaden112.... www.echo-online.d...

Barge sank on Ijsselmeer
On July 5, 2016, the "Alsvin", 2634 ts (EU-No.: 06004017), sank on the IJsselmeer six Kilometers south of Stavoren. The strong westerly winds with a strength of ssix Baufort had caused water ingress in the cargo hold of the loaded vessel. One person on board was rescued with hypothermia from the half submerged cabin block. Two others remained dry and were collected safe and sound by another ship. Four KNRM-lifeboats from Hindeloopen, Enkhuizen and Lemmer and a rescue helicopter were alerted at 3.35 p.m. The wheelhouse of the wreck emerged above water. Because the ship was leaking oil, oil booms have been laid out around the stern by the salvage ship "Odin". Divers of Rijkswaterstaat were called to seal the oil leaks. The "RWS 77" left port at 5.30 p.m. towards the wreck. A surveillance aircraft was monitoring the sea for pollution. The ship was coming from Duisburg and used to transport iron slag from Ijmuiden. Three floating cranes will be used to lighter the cargo before the whole ship may be salvaged. Work may only start once the wreck has ben inspected by salvors and insurance representatives.

 Qing  (Passenger Ship > Cruise Ship)

Salvage work delayed
Plans to pump out water and seal the leakages onboard the "Qing" failed on July 4 after rough weather and high tide forced authorities to defer their plans for a day. Sub-contractors hired by Trinity Leisure, the charterer of the vessel, and SMIT International succeeded in surveying the damage to the ship and deployed their own ocean containment booms after the arrival of their equipment. The Indian Coast Guard has taken out their ocean containment booms and the pollution control vessel ICGS "Samudra Prahari" has sailed out of the port. The boat was now patrolling in the vicinity and can help if required. Attempts to pump out the water from the engine room and refloat the vessel will be made again on July 5 if weather conditions were favourable. The charterers have not decided on pumping out the oil for now. First, the water will be removed and then subsequently the oil will be removed if the need arises. The ship was resting in a water depth of 8.5 meters at the Western India Shipyard Limited berth at the Vasco MPT harbour.
