Freighter refloated

Fri Dec 04 10:02:05 CET 2020 Timsen

The 'Harvest Spirit' which ran aground early on Dec 2 in the Detroit River near Grosse Ile has finally been refloated by the tugs 'George F. Bailey', 'Wyoming' and 'Nebraska' and was moved out of the shipping channel on Dec 3 about 7 p.m. Shortly before 9 p.m., the freighter was in the waters of Lake Erie and dropped anchor at 9 p.m. in position 41° 57.54' N 083° 4.51' W in U.S. waters, awaiting a thorough inspection. No one was injured. and there were no indications of leakage or pollution from the ship, which was loaded with approximately 10,000 metric tons of furnace coke and 74,000 gallons of diesel fuel. Meanwhile, the Livingstone Channel in the lower Detroit River, where the freighter ran aground, remained closed pending completion of a Corps of Engineers first light survey to ensure sufficient water depth for traffic to resume.

Traffic jam becomes costly

Thu Dec 03 22:28:07 CET 2020 Timsen

Efforts to free the 'Harvest Spirit' on the Detroit River were expanding on Dec 3, while costs grew for those waiting to get around the ship and continue through the Great Lakes. The Canadian authorities continued to monitor the scene as various efforts were made by Coast Guards in both countries and the owner company. The vessel was stable, with no reports of pollution or water intake. Transport Canada was conducting a National Aerial Surveillance Program pollution detection overflight to ensure there was no pollution in the affected areas. The U.S. Coast Guard stated there were 13 vessels waiting to move through the channel. The industry trade group Lake Carriers Association was also keeping a close eye on the situation. Based in Westlake, Ohio, the association represents U.S.-flagged vessel operators on the Great Lakes. the 'Harvest Spirit's predicament immediately had a giant financial impact on the region's shipping industry. Vessels stacked up in Lake Huron about Port Huron and in the Detroit River down by Detroit. It was estimated that it costs $3,000 to $5,000 per hour for a 1,000-foot freighter to sit idle. The traffic jam was worrisome because the shipping season and sailing from Lake Superior to the lower lakes will end on Jan. 15 with the closure of the Soo Locks and won't start up again until March 25. Any impact cuts into the nine-month season. The vessel's owner, McKeil Marine, has submitted and got approval for a salvage plan. The vessel will begin ballasting its tanks following successful engine test results. Two tugs from the Great Lakes Towing, the 'Manitou' and the 'Clyde S. Vanenkevort', were assisting. The freighter has a U.S. Environmental Response Plan in place to mitigate pollution, according to the Coast Guard, and once the Harvest Spirit is refloated, the Army Corps of Engineers will survey the Livingstone Channel. Additional personnel and assets from both the Canadian and United States Coast Guards were on standby in the immediate area, if needed. The ship was carrying about 74,000 gallons of diesel fuel and a cargo of 9,000-10,000 metric tons of furnace coke. On Dec 2 the 'Harvest Spirit' made her first visit to Detroit and loaded the coke on Zug Island. Aftershe ran aground, the Canadian Coast Guard's Marine Communications and Traffic Services in Sarnia directed vessels on the river to only travel through the shallower Amherstburg Channel, if operators felt it was safe. Canadian authorities will clear vessels that wanted to use travel through the area on a case-by-case basis.

Grounding on Detroit River

Wed Dec 02 19:05:41 CET 2020 Timsen

On Dec 2, 2020, at 6.40 a.m. the 'Harvest Spirit' an aground on the lower Detroit River inside the Livingstone Channel. It got stuck in pos. 42° 6.35' N 083° 7.65 W in an area known as the Hole-in-the-Wall. The ship was underway downstream with a cargo of coke enroute from Sault Ste. Marie towards Detroit. The vessel experienced some sore of lube oil failure and starting drifting after losing propulsion. The ship was grounded sideways in the channel and completely blocking the channel. No pollution was reported. The 'Harvest Spirit' was carrying about 74,000 gallons of diesel fuel and its cargo is 9,000-10,000 metric tons of furnace coke. The Canadian Coast Guard has taken the lead for responding and was keeping officials with its U.S. counterpart abreast of efforts to free the freighter. The Coast Guard notified all vessels that would travel through the channel they are unable to at this time. A nearby channel, the Amherstburg, remained open and allowed for two-way traffic, but the Canadian Coastguard recommended loaded vessels don't use it. Ships with cargo were asked to anchor in designated areas. The first vessel to attempt the transit, the cargo ship 'Gardno', touched bottom while trying to avoid the 'Harvest Spirit'. She anchored at Colchester in Ontario to assess potential damage. Several tugs gathered at the grounding site, but before 7 p.m. the salvage operations have stopped for safety and were to resume at daylight on Dec 3. Once refloated, the ship will drop anchor and be surveyed by divers to assess any possible damage to the hull. The freighter's crew planned to repair the ship's lube oil pump while it was aground. In the afternoon of Dec 3 the tugs 'Clyde S Vanenkevort','George F. Bailey', 'Manitou' and 'Wyoming' were connected to the vessel.
