9 hours ago by Timsen

Stinking vessel banned from port
The "Polaris 2" was banned from calling at Santa Cruz de Tenerife following residents protests, because the vessel was spreading nauseating stink. It was to call Santa Cruz for fodder resupply, on its journey from Vila do Conde to Port Said. The vessel was moored off Santa Cruz on Apr 24, 2017. It left the anchorage and continued vits oyage on Apr 25. Earlier it was banned from calling La Luz and Las Palmas ports for the same reason, being notoriously known for keeping cattle in poor conditions during voyages. In 2016 a veterinary inspection found that at least 300 cattle had died, out of several thousand. The dead cattle were thrown overboard on the way from Canary Islands to Gibraltar.

All Russian crew members of reconaissance ship sunk by Youzarsif H safe
The "Youzarsif H" was in collision with the Russian Navy ship "Liman", 1560 ts, off the Turkish coast in the Black Sea on Apr 27, 2017 at noon. She was loaded with 8.000 sheeps and was enroute from Capu Midia to Aqaba. The latter was holed at starboard side below the waterline. Rescue ships of the SB-739 and EPRON of the Russian navy left the main base of the Black Sea Fleet and rushed to the area of ​​the incident, as well as an AN-26 aircraft with rescuers on board. The fight to keep the "Liman" afloat was lost, and the crew was forced to abandon ship. Assistance in the evacuation was provided by a tug and three patrol boats of the Turkish Coast Guard. The Russian cargo ship "Ulus Star" (IMO: 9297125), which was underway from Astrakhan to Ravenna was 1,5 miles away, and took on board the crew of 78 from the reconnaissance ship 63 of whom were rescued by the Turkish Coastguard and the other 15 by the "Youzarsif H". The intelligence ship sank at 2:48 p.m. in position 41.50 ° / 28.95 ° about 40 kilometers north-west of the Bosporus estuary off the town of Kilyos near Istanbul. The reconnaissance vessel belonged to the Black Sea Fleet. The collision was caused by fog and poor visibility. The livestock carrier suffered only slight damage. The Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildiri shortly after the incident contacted his Russian colleague, Dmitry Medvedev, and gave him his concern. This was shared by Turkish government agencies. The "Liman" was a former research vessel with a length of 73 meters, built in which had been upgraded by the Russian Navy to a reconnaissance vessel. In February, Russian media had reported that the "Liman" would pursue a NATO maneuver in the Black Sea, citing military circles. More on the ship: www.kchf.ru/ship/...

 Norwegian Star  (Passenger ship)
19 hours ago by Timsen

Failed engine repair responsible for passengers being stranded in Victoria
The "Norwegian Star" spent days stuck off Victoria's coast in February with 2000 passengers because a repair job on the engine failed at sea, a report has found. Two tugs were deployed to tow it into Melbourne for repairs. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau preliminary investigation was released on Apr 27. It showed the field exciter unit for the main propulsion motor failed in December, January and February. The engine could only be properly repaired if the ship was taken out of service, so a standard modification was made to keep it running in December. The change to the engine's operation meant the "Norwegian Star" was running with one propulsion unit, giving it full manoeuvrability but at a reduced speed of between 13 to 16 knots. The engine also broke down in January, but in February the modified part of the engine broke down, leaving the cruise liner with no options for repairs. The investigation was ongoing and will focus on the failure of the propulsion units, the modifications made and the vessel operation with one unit. The passengers spent days stranded in Melbourne, with about 350 quitting the cruise rather than travel on to New Zealand.

Pipeline Contracts Signed for Nord Stream 2
Gazprom’s Nord Stream 2 project has taken a step towards its implementation with the signing of financial agreements for the pipeline project with Engie, OMV, Shell, Uniper and Wintershall. The five companies have committed to provide long-term financing for 50 percent of the total cost of the project, which is currently estimated to be €9.5 billion ($10.4 billion). Each will fund up to €950 million ($1 billion). Gazprom is and will remain the sole shareholder of the project company, Nord Stream 2 AG. Earlier this month, Nord Stream 2 AG signed a contract with Allseas for the offshore pipelay through the Baltic Sea. Allseas will use three pipelay vessels: Pioneering Spirit, Solitaire and Audacia. Solitaire was used previously to lay parts of the Nord Stream pipeline in the Gulf of Finland.

Containerships being diverted to avoid congestion at port of Shanghai
Readjusted shipping schedules and higher-than-expected export volumes have exacerbated congestion at the world’s busiest container terminal, Shanghai. Although fog caused initial delays at Yangshan, one forwarder in Shanghai told The Loadstar the new alliance schedules had resulted in long delays and crowded quaysides. As they readjusted to new timetables, ships had failed to call at port at the correct times, said the forwarder, resulting in a logjam of vessels and containers. “Readjusting alliance shipping schedules is comprehensively to blame. Space was not properly adjusted to account for this, and continued overbooking by carriers has resulted in a build-up of containers waiting to be exported.” Another source confirmed there had been a higher number of overbooked containers than normal being delivered. According to the forwarder, the chaos caused has left ships stranded at outer anchorages until berths become available, with some reports suggesting delays of more than 50 hours. “One ship, Hyundai Forward, was wandering around for two days,” said the forwarder. “This is only worsening issues with equipment storage as containers wait to be loaded.” In a statement to customers, Norman Global Logistics said inbound container trucks were being limited to two of the four lanes feeding into the port. “An update from our Shanghai office has confirmed that vessels are waiting more than a week, a situation made worse by dense fog which presented additional operational challenges,” said the company. “While many of these issues are entirely out of our control, we are working closely with the port and shipping lines to try and minimise the impact of these delays on our customers.” Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) attributed the congestion to “imbalanced business volumes from major container shipping routes following the regroup of major shipping alliances”. A Maersk spokesperson told American Shipper it was working closely with Chinese ports to address operational challenges and was “maintaining a dialogue” with its terminal partners. Forwarder Ligentia informed customers that, to address issues surrounding vessel berthing programmes, the port authorities had temporarily shifted services around the terminals. It added: “Port authorities announced that the port would be back to normal operating times by the end of May.” According to SIPG, it has rescheduled calls in April and May from its Guandong and Shengdong container terminals at Yangshan to its Hudong, Pudong and Waigaoqiao terminals.

Trawler on fire in Agadir
The Moroccon trawler “Abou Al Wafa”, 431 gt (IMO: 8820987), caught fire in the morning of Apr 26, 2017, at 11 a.m. at dock no. 6 Agadir during maintenance works. Fire fighters were soon on scene and trying for two hours to control the fire which was thought to have started during a welding operation. But it subsequently spread to the whole vessel. The other ships which were docked next to the ship were removed to avoid the spread of the fire. The vessel became unstable and started tilting to starboard side and leaned onto the quay. Two firefighters and one worker were seriously injured and taken to the provincial hospital Hassan II at Agadir. The trawler capsized and sank, still ablaze.

Tug raised on Mississippi
The Unified Command has completed its response to the "Todd Brown" at mile marker 940 on the Mississippi near Columbus, Kentucky, on Apr 26. The vessel was successfully raised and transported to Ingram Repair Facility. There were no restrictions to commercial or recreational vessel traffic due to the incident. A total of approximately 235 gallons of diesel fuel was discharged from the vessel during the 9-day salvage incident. SWS Enviromental Services was on scene for the duration of the incident and contained and collected the spilled fuel. Responders also safely removed over 10,500 gallons of oily water from the vessel, preventing any further discharge in the environment during the salvage operations. The remaining fuel onboard, which was stored in intact tanks, was to be removed at the repair facility. The tug had sunk on Apr 17 on the right descending bank of the Lower Mississippi.
