5 hours ago by Timsen

Propeller fouled by fish farm rope
In the morning of Sep 21, 2017, the ferry connection Sævrøy - Fedje was temporarily suspended due to technical problems of the "Utne". The propulsion got fouled by a rope in the propeller and the ship stopped on the way to Fedje, but the ferry managed to come safely to the dock. At 3 p.m. a replacement ship was inserted, and at 5 p.m. the propeller was cleared from the obstruction, probably a rope for fish farms.

 Agia Zoni II  (Tankers)
5 hours ago by Timsen

Fuel lightering stopped after lighter tanker was arrested
Lightering work at the "Agia Zoni I" has been suspended for the time being. In order to pump the remaining oil out of the wreck, the Greek government had deployed another tanker, the "Lassea", but the captain and mechanic of that ship were arrested on Sep 19 on suspicion of oil smuggling. She had significant quantities of a petroleum mixture on board without the correct documentation. The suspect petroleum was found in her ballast tanks when she arrived at a refinery to deliver the oil recovered from the wreck of the "!Agia Zoni II" in Elevsis. The "Lassea" also had expired government certificates of seaworthiness, like the Zoni, which was operating on an extension. The officers' case will be heard at the Complaints Court of Piraeus on Sep 22. Since the shipwreck, a large part of the island of Salamina was covered under a thick layer of black smurry. The oil spill continued until the port of Piraeus and some of the Athenian Riviera beaches were smeared with oil and tar. The Greek government was blamed for not responding quickly to the sinking the tanker. Although the smorgie on the beaches had already been swept up quickly, it took taken four days before the Greek government had formulated a clear response to the crisis. Lightering of oil of the sunken ship could last 30 to 40 days. Normally, the remaining oil would be pumped out of the sunken tanker during the coming days onto another ship. However, that ship did not appear to have the necessary certificates and, moreover, contained more oil than allowed. The captain and chief engineer of the ship were arrested on suspicion of oil smuggling. The storage operation has therefore been temporarily suspended. Report with photo: maritime-executiv...

 Elbe Highway  (Vrachtschepen)

Greenpeace blocked car carrier with diesel cars
On Sep 21, 2017, the "Elbe Highway" as been boarded by 25 protesters from the environmental group Greenpeace at Sheerness. The ship was bringing new Volkswagen Group petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid cars from Emden which have been the target of a protest by Greenpeace. The protesters climbed aboard the ship in an attempt to stop the unloading of the cars it was carrying and demonstrate against the much publicised VW emissions scandal. The protesters suspended themselves from the ship’s 27-meter high unloading doors, unfurled a 50 square meter banner showing a girl in an air-pollution mask and said they would remain there until Volkswagen agreed to return the cars to Germany. The "Elbe Highway" was subsequently moved away from the Port of Sheerness to anchor off Margate. Police became aware of the protest at the Thames Estuary port shortly before 9 a.m. and attended the scene where they found an additional 41 protesters had scaled the fence and entered secure areas of the port itself where large numbers of new cars are parked awaiting distribution. In a statement, Greenpeace was attempting to immobilise all the diesel cars by removing their keys. Volkswagen said, the diesel vehicles, which wer ethe subject of the protest meet strict Euro 6 emissions standards. German report with photo: www.waz-online.de...

Two crew members died from malaria after medevac off East London
The "Agios Fanourios" requested immediate medical assistance for two crew members who were in critical condition in the afternoon of Sep 20, 2017, about 92 miles east of East London. The NSRI East London was alerted by the Transnet National Ports Authority following reports of two sailors requiring an urgent medevac from the bulkcarrier which was sailing from Abijan to Durban. The men, a 53 year old Panamanian and a 53 year old Filipino were reported to be unconscious and suspected to be suffering from Malaria. The MRCC had been alerted earlier in the day and a Government Health EMS duty doctor had assessed the patients conditions and requested an urgent patient evacuation operation. The distance and time constraints ruled out a ship to sea rescue craft rescue operation and the NSRI ASR (Airborne Sea Rescue) were alerted to coordinate an airborne sea rescue operation. The MRCC scrambled an SA Air Force (SAAF) 15 Squadron Oryx helicopter. The NSRI Durban dispatched ASR rescue swimmers, and Netcare 911 dispatched rescue paramedics to respond to the SAAF 15 Squadron Air Force base in Durban. NSRI East London, NSRI Port St Johns, NSRI Port Edward and NSRI Shelly Beach were placed on alert. At 8.30 p.m. an SAAF 15 Squadron Oryx helicopter accompanied by the NSRI Durban ASR rescue swimmers and with Netcare 911 rescue paramedics were airborne from Durban. They rendezvoused with the ship 13 miles off Port St Johns on the Transkei Wild Coast. The NSRI rescue swimmers and the Netcare 911 rescue paramedics were hoisted onto the ship from the helicopter and found thesailors in the care of the ships medics, one in a serious condition, and one in a critical condition. Medical treatment was administered and both patients conditions were stabilised. They were prepared and secured and hoisted into the helicopter in relays secured into specialised rescue stretchers. The Filipino patient’s heart failed once he was in the helicopter and CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) efforts were commenced by the Netcare 911 rescue paramedics assisted by the NSRI crew and a heart beat was restored. Medical treatment to both patients continued onboard the helicopter and we landed at hospital in Durban at 23h06 where doctors and nurses took over medical treatment of both patients. It was later confirmed that CPR efforts had been conducted in hospital on both patients whose conditions had deteriorated and both patients had later died.

Grounding on the Elbe
On Sep 21, 2017, at 6.47 a.m. the "Sheksna" ran aground on the Elbe off Hamburg-Cranz at the Mühlenberg Hole. The ship had loaded a 135-tons-generator at the J.J. Sietas Yard in Neuenfelde which was bound to Riga. Upon the return from the Este the ship got stuck with the outgoing tide, possibly having sailed too late. With the high tide at 6.20 p.m. tugs started to refloat the vessel. In the afternoon the tug "Löwe" (211590310) had connected to the vessel which was stuck within the fairway betwen the buoys EZ 7 and EZ 9. After the ship was pulled off, it was berthed at the Mönckeberg Quay in the Ellerholz Port in Hamburg at warehouse 76/77 for investigations. The ship has also been engaged in the controversial transportation of nuclear materials to Hamburg, which made her a target for ecologist protests and criticism.

 Lucky Seven  (Loodsschepen)
14 hours ago by Timsen

Bad weather interrupts salvage work
The salvage work at the "Lucky Seven" could not be resumed on Sep 20 because of bad weather conditions and the salvage tugs "Maria" having its engine broke down so it has been anchored at the Captain of Ports jetty for repairs which was hoped to be completed by Sep 21. High tides will prevail work over the next 3-4 days which will help in pulling the vessel and conduct the underwater survey and also patch-up work before the vessel proceeds to Ratnagiri for dry dock. The Captain of Ports has asked the owner to anchor the vessel either off Campal waters or towards the Verem shore. The owner was not keen on moving the vessel towards Campal as the water level was low there and the team may face problem to carry out the underwater survey which requires 7-8 metre-deep water so that the Verem waters were thought to be the ideal location. The vessel was just 50 metres away from the Mandovi channel, and if the weather improved in next 24 hours salvors will resume the operation.

"Kassie" was refused access to the Paris MoU regions
The "Kassie" was refused access to the Paris MoU regions. The ship, then the "City of Antwerp", had been detained in Antwerp (on Oct 13, 2015, and left the port of Antwerp on Aug 24, 2017 but failed to call at a repair yard in Yalova as agreed before Sep 5. Therefore under the provisions of section 4.2 of the Paris MoU, Article 21.4 of EU Council Directive 2009/16/EC and the provisions of the Belgian shipping act, the ship will be refused further access to any port and anchorage in the Paris MOU region, except a port and anchorage of the ship’s flag State, until it has provided evidence to the satisfaction of the administration that the ship full complies with applicable requirements of the Conventions. The ship docked at the Sefine shipyard in Altinova on Sep 15.

Jugend Rettet may have been victim of right extremists in Italy
The German NGO "Jugend Rettet" whose "Iuventa" was impounded by Italian authorities on suspicion of collusion with people traffickers on Sep 20 went to court to demand the immediate release of the vessel was seized on Aug 2 in Lampedusa. A judge in Trapani will rule on the request for the vessel's release by Sep 22. The seizure was ordered by an investigating magistrate based on testimony from two former police officers working as security on another boat patrolling waters off Libya to help save refugees and other migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean on rickety dinghies and converted fishing boats chartered by traffickers. The pair have testified, with the support of photographs, that they witnessed Iuventa crew members talking to presumed traffickers and that, on at least one occasion, the NGO's staff had towed a wooden boat from which migrants had been rescued back into Libyan waters, making it available for reuse by traffickers. The NGO provided its side of the story on Tuesday, notably detailing contacts between the crew and the Italian Coastguard, which coordinates rescue activity in the area. All the evidence collected has been presented and interpreted in an erroneous manner, and there were links between the key witnesses and far-right groups. The "Iuventa"'s position had been in line with instructions from the Coastguard and that the boat supposedly delivered back to traffickers was only towed a short distance to get it away from the NGO's boat. The alleged traffickers seen talking to the Iuventa crew members were in fact armed criminals who frequently attempt to pick up outboard motors after or even during rescues. "Jugend Rettet" demanded the immediate release of our ship, the dropping of any charges against the organisation or crew members and that those responsible for this despicable smear campaign publicly apologize.

BW Maple cleared to sail
In a controversial move, the Directorate General of Shipping and Mercantile Marine Department (MMD), Chennai, has issued a no-objection certificate to the "BW Maple", which had collided with the "Dawn Kancheepuram" off the Ennore coast on Jan 28 leading to an oil spill, though the investigation into the incident was still underway.
