Grounding in Odense Fjord
On Dec 16, 2019, at 2.30 p.m. the 'Voge Julie' which had left Odense Vigeroe at 1.45 p.m. ran aground while leaving the Odense Fjord. A tug managed to refloat the ship, which was detained for investigations and dropped anchor in pos. 55° 35.83' N 010° 31.36' E. The anti pollution vessel 'Marie Miljø ' which had just finished its operations at the 'Norholm' off Marstal, was deployed as a precaution. Surveys of the hull were carried out by divers of the 'Seadiver' (MMSI: 219007462). On Dec 17 the 'Voge Julie' which was bound to Gothenburg at the time of the incident was cleared to sail after hull inspections and surveys. The ship moored on Skagen anchorage in pos. 57° 40.57' B 010° 36.58' E at noon.
Detention in Porto Empedocle
The "Voge Julie" was detained due to serious deficiencies in Porto Empedocle on May 10, 2019, by the local Coast Guard during a Port State Control Unit after the ship had arrived in the port to load a cargo of salt on May 9, coming from Haifa. The inspection was carried out by the PSC inspectors jointly with personnel from the Trapani Port Authority. The ship appeared to be in sub-standard conditions according to international standards for navigation safety ue to the numerous serious deficiencies in terms of ship and equipment maintenance and deficiencies in the quality management system. The ship was now waiting for the minimum standards to be restored in order to be authorized to sail again after another inspection and the issue of a safety certification.
