Last crew member left detained ship

Fri Jun 14 11:35:57 CEST 2019 Timsen

On June 14 the last crew member left the "Basel Express" almost three mothns after its detention in Antwerp after entering port on March 21. He was to be repatriated. Legionella on board, decaying food were no fun during the recent months for the remaining crew. When the ship will be gone, however, was unclear. When it arrived in port, it had about 30 technical defects, but also hygiene breaches and was detained by inspectors.

Ship detained, captain fled

Fri Mar 29 10:21:52 CET 2019 Timsen

The "Basel Express" has been detained upon its arrival in the port of Antwerp. Multiple problems on board led to inspections, during which 30 defiencies were found regarding technical defects, but also hygiene breaches. The living conditions also turned out to be bad, with decaying food on board. The crew had no fresh vegetables or fruit. There is only frozen food on board but also the freezers were broken. Now the sailors get food from another ship that has been detained in the port of Antwerp and the crew of which has been allowed to leave. The Syrian captain has disappeared without a trace. The ship had arrived in the Albert Dock on March 21, coming from Gibraltar with about 20 crew members, among them Syrians, Egyptians and Indians. It seemed that hey had not been paid, but reliable documents were missing. The Maritime Police has withheld the crew's passports and the sailor's booklets. They must remain on board. The Immigration Office is also involved. Presumably they will be forced to repatriate.

The Malta flagged AHTS "GSP King" (IMO: 9296028) assisted the "Basel Express" which ran out of diesel three miles off Cape Tuzla in a storm with 7-8 Beaufort wind. The ship suffered a blackout and was anchored in the coastal waters off Constantia. Despite seven shots of anchor chain in the water, the anchor started dragging The tug decided to use its grapnel to catch the anchor chain of the "Basel Express", and after two hours of difficult maneuvers, it managedto catch the anchor chain and commenced towing towards Constanta with a tow length of 200 meters. At midnight the convoy arrived in Constanta, and in the morning the "Basel Express" was taken over by port tugs and pulled to the passenger quay. The rescue operation was carried out in extreme weather conditions, with wind gusts that exceeded 55 nautical knots per hour and waves exceeding six meters. The operation was finalized on Dec 30, 2016, at 12.38 p.m., after almost 18 hours of intervention. The "Basel Express" had sailed from the Ukraine on Dec 28.
