Dredger sank off Wilhelmshaven
In the morning of Nov 19, 2014, the "Johanna Josephine" ran onto a submerged sheet piling of the cooling water outlet of the GDF Suez power plant in Wilhelmshaven and was hooked. The vessel which was about to unload a cargo of stones there in the morning hours was breached and started sinking. The DGzRS-lifeboat "Vormann Steffens" and the "W 5" of the Water Police were quickly on the spot. Finally only the deck excavator "Liebherr R 964 C Litronic" and the rear were showing above the water. A small amount of water was spilt into the Jade. The cargo was now to be lightered and the leak sealed by divers. After the ship was refloated, it was moved to the New Jade Yard in Wilhelmshaven.

Kiel-Gothenburg ferry to become first methanol fuelled ferry in the world
The "Stena Germanica" conversion to methanol will cost €22m (US$27.6m) and start at Remotowna Yard in Gdanks in January 2015. It was expected to take six weeks. The conversion is in response to the sulphur emission regulations that come into force at the end of 2014. The project will be financially supported by the European Union’s “motorways of the seas” initiative. Stena had been undergoing trials of methanol in the auxiliary engine to push ahead with a full conversion. Methanex Corporation will supply the methanol. Wärtsilä, the Finnish engineering group and engine manufacturer, is also involved in the project, which will result in the vessel being dual-fuelled so as to still have the option of using marine gas oil if needed. Stena will look at converting other vessels to run off methanol if this pilot conversion works well.

Casualty towed from Scapa to Invergordon
The "Nicola" on Nov 19 has left Scapa Flow under tow to Invergordon, where repairs were to be carried out. After the vessel broke down in the Pentland Firth off Strathy Pt. on Oct 19 and was taken in tow by the Coastguard emergency tug "Herakles" into Scapa Flow, she had remained ever since. Early in the morning of Nov 19, the vessel was towed from Scapa Flow by the Orkney Towage tugs "Harald" and "Einar" with an ETA at Invergordon as of Nov 20.
