15 min ago by Timsen

Medevac off Yakutat
An H-60 Jayhawk helicopter of the Coast Guard Air Station Sitka Mcrew medevaced a 57-year-old man with a leg injury from the "Crystal Serenity" on June 27, 2017, approximately 12 miles southwest of Yakutat en route to Sitka. Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector Juneau command center received a medevac request from the "Crystal Serenity" for a passenger with a fractured femur. Watchstanders requested the launch of the Jayhawk crew after consulting the duty flight surgeon who recommended medevac of the man. The Jayhawk crew safely hoisted the man and transported him to Sitka. Weather on scene was reported as 17-mph winds and 8-foot seas with light rain.

 Gemini Gas  (Tankship)
19 hours ago by Timsen

Tanker under repair in Duqm since two months after fire
Since Apr 26, 2017, the "Gemini Gas" was being repaired at the Al Duqm Port & Drydock yard following the fire in the engine room on Apr 1, 2017, about 132 miles south-east of Salalah. During the incident the vessel was on passage from Khorfakkan to Port Sudan, laden with 4.400 tonnes of LPG mixed. The vessel sustained severe damages due to fire and an electrician lost his life. On Apr 2, Tsavliris dispatched the "Gladiator" from Djibouti and on 6 April towage commenced. A salvage team was mobilised from Greece arriving in Salalah on Apr 7. On Apr 8 the convoy arrived at Salalah anchorage and remained under tow at slow speed off Salalah port. On Apr 10, the body of the deceased crewmember was transferred ashore to the hospital/morgue. The cargo’s stable condition was maintained by retention of the required tank pressure/freezing level. On Apr 11, the “GEMINI GAS” proceeded under tow to Salalah port and berthed with the assistance of port tugs. Electrical repairs were carried out by the salvage team by portable diesel generators and power was restored. On Apr 17, the salvage team and a team of four armed guards boarded the vessel for the onward voyage to Duqm. On Apr 20, the convoy safely arrived at Duqm and the tug was released. The salvage team completed all necessary works in the engine room and the casualty was redelivered on Apr 21. Report with photos: www.hellenicshipp...

 Iyanough  (High-Speed Craft)
20 hours ago by Timsen

Captain of ferry mistook masts for buoys
The captain of the "Iyanough" that ran into a jetty in Hyannis mistook sailboat masts for guide buoys, according to a report from the company. A report on the investigation was presented to the Steamship Authority meeting, though the Coast Guard was conducting an independent investigation of the incident. According to the company, the rough seas and low visibility led to problems with locating direction buoys as the ferry began to navigate into Hyannis Harbor. The report blamed rough seas for obscuring the jetty on radar and noted when the captain realized the jetty was just ahead, he engaged the emergency stop function on the ship. Full report of General Manager Wayne C. Lamson to the Members of the Woods Hole, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority on the Accident Involving the Authority's High-Speed Ferry, the M/V Iyanough June 27, 2017 As everyone knows by now, at 9:35 in the evening of Friday, June 16th, the Iyanough had an allision with the Hyannis Harbor breakwater. The vessel was traveling from Nantucket to Hyannis on its last trip of the day. There were 48 passengers, 6 crew members, and 3 food service workers on board the vessel at the time of the incident. On behalf of the Steamship Authority, I again want to thank the Coast Guard, all of the local first responders, the crew of the helicopter from Air Station Cape Cod, and the Iyanough's crew and passengers who made the ferry's evacuation safe and orderly under adverse conditions. Our concerns are first and foremost for the safety and well-being of our passengers and crew, and we deeply appreciate the efforts of all who guided them safely to shore. The Coast Guard hoisted 5 injured passengers off of the ferry, as well as 10 other people who could not walk over the breakwater. The remaining passengers and crew were taken off the ferry to shore by boat. Acting Hyannis Fire Chief Dean Melanson has indicated that 15 people were brought to Cape Cod Hospital for various injuries, none of which were said to be life-threatening. All of the injured passengers and crew members were treated and released from the hospital. Despite the impact of the allision, the Iyanough's fuel tanks remained intact and there was no environmental damage as a result of the incident. The following morning, we were able to free the vessel from the breakwater and take it to the Hyannis terminal. Later that day, the vessel left under its own power to Fairhaven Shipyard so that it could be inspected to determine what repairs are needed before it can be placed back into service. The Coast Guard is conducting an investigation of the incident, which includes interviews with the crew to determine its exact cause. We are also investigating the accident and, although our investigation is continuing, our preliminary findings include the following: The Iyanough departed from Nantucket at 8:45 that evening bound for Hyannis. The winds were reported to be strong from the SSE at approximately 30-35 knots and visibility was diminished by intermittent rain and fog. The crossing itself was uneventful. As the vessel approached the "HH" navigation buoy which is located about 2,500 yards south of from the entrance to the main channel for Hyannis Harbor security calls were made and the buoy was logged. At that point, the next navigation buoy the vessel would pass by on its way into the channel would be Buoy No. 4, which is located a few hundred yards south of the channel entrance, and after passing by Buoy No. 4, the vessel would turn starboard to go between Buoys 5 and 6, which mark the 240-foot wide entrance into the channel, at its usual operating speed of more than 32 knots. After logging the HH buoy, the Captain asked the Pilot to use the vessel's searchlight and light up Buoy No. 4 for him. The Captain then reached across the console and engaged the searchlight for the Pilot. When the Captain returned to the RADAR, he recognized the familiar pattern of Buoys 4, 5 and 6 and began adjusting the vessel's course to accommodate its entrance into the main Hyannis channel. The Pilot was unable to locate any navigational aids with the searchlight. But what the Captain had interpreted on the RADAR as Buoy No. 4 was in fact the metal pole at the end of the breakwater, which is about 800 yards north of Buoy No. 4 and also north of the channel entrance. At that time, the breakwater itself was not visible on RADAR because the waves, which were estimated to be 8 feet high at the time, obscured the breakwater's RADAR image, while the pole was visible because of its greater height above the waves. In addition, what the Captain had interpreted as Buoys 5 and 6 were actually sailboats located on the other side of the jetty. The distances and positions of the pole and the sailboats matched identically to the pattern normally associated with Buoys 4, 5 and 6. Therefore, the Captain did not detect anything unusual about the vessel's approach into Hyannis channel until, after adjusting the vessel's course to begin its entrance into the channel, he saw the breakwater in front of the vessel and administered the "panic stop" as trained. As far as we have been able to determine, all of the vessel's navigation and mechanical systems were properly functioning that evening. In addition, the Captain and the Pilot tested negative for alcohol and drugs. Because our investigation is still continuing, I do not feel that it would be appropriate for me to speculate at this time about the cause of this incident. Suffice it to say that we are looking at all potentially contributing factors to this accident, including the actions and operational judgment of the vessel's Captain and Pilot. Both of them are well-respected and well-qualified officers with decades of experience; but they remain on administrative leave while we continue to investigate why, given their experience and abilities, they mistook the structure at the end of the Hyannis Harbor breakwater and two moored sailboats for Buoys 4, 5 and 6. The Iyanough is expected to be out of service for 3-4 weeks for repairs and sea trials before being cleared by the Coast Guard to return to line service. We are looking at somewhere around July 21st as a likely return date based on where we are currently with the ongoing hull repairs.

Ship detained in port for thorough inspections
The "Aldebarán", has to remain in port until the PNA has carried out an inspection after the crew of the ship on June 24 decided to disembark due to the problems of instability it had suffered, The owner, Leandro Ciccolella, had already begun to assemble a new crew, but when the complaint of the crew became known, the Comodoro Rivadavia Prefectureordered an inspection. The ship must remain in port until all necessary tests are carried out. The inspection was scheduled to be carried out on June 29 by specialized personnel of the city of Comodoro Rivadavia, including the revision of navigation equipment, especially gyrocompasses and magnetic compasses, verifying their compensation and chart of diversions, radar, direction finder, echo sounder, signaling elements and fire-fighting devices. Also hydraulic tests must be performed and the rescue systems, boats, rafts, vests, pyrotechnic elements required by international regulations, nautical instruments and mooring devices checked. Due to the seriousness of the complaints and the negligent position of the owner of the ship, the Prefecture considered it necessary to carry out all these tests.

First nuclear waste transport on German river underway
The controversial first transport of nuclear waste on a river in Germany started on June 28, 2017, under police protection. At the decommissioned nuclear power plant Obrigheim (Neckar-Odenwald-municipality) the "Ronja" with a barge started the transport of three castors under contract of the energy supplier EnBW from Obrigheim to Neckarwestheim where they were to be deposited in an intermediate storage. The voyage of 50 kilometers on the lower Neckar was expected to take around 12 hours. At Heilbron nuclear adversaries timewise stopped the ship for protests. The police guarded the transport with boats, a helicopter and forces on shore. Each of the three Castor containers was mounted on a vessel on board the barge. The vehicles were rolled directly onto the ship in Obrigheim and would remain there for the entire journey. The company was planning a total of five journeys with three Castors each in the coming weeks with a total of 342 fuel elements. German reports with photos: www.haz.de/Nachri... www.sueddeutsche....

Comic Figure Dora the Explorer to be godmother for Pacific Explorer
In a cruise industry first, P&O Cruises Australia has named popular Nickelodeon character Dora the Explorer as godmother of its latest ship Pacific Explorer. Dora the Explorer will officially christen Pacific Explorer at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal on 2 July alongside Nickelodeon characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Skye from PAW Patrol. Fans can win tickets to the celebration by visiting www.nick.com.au/win before 25 June 2017. “We’re excited for Dora to take on her new role as godmother of Pacific Explorer,” said Ben Cox, general manager of Nickelodeon Australia. “Nickelodeon is synonymous with family entertainment and we can't wait to bring our characters onboard this fantastic ship to host the best family party yet.” Formerly Princess Cruises’ Dawn Princess, Pacific Explorer was recently converted in a multimillion-dollar project at Sembawang Shipyard in Singapore. The ship was fitted with various innovations, including the longest waterslides at sea, an interactive water park, an outdoor Big Screen, a barefoot lawn bowls, and P&OEdge Adventure Park – with activities such as zip lining and rock climbing. www.cruiseandferr...
