Investigations for environmental crime
Officials of the water police in Travemünde discovered on Jan 11. 2018, a manipulation of the sewage system of the "Marittima". Due to these technical changes, waste water could be pumped outside without being treated. After consultation and at the request of the prosecutor in Lübeck a search warrant for the ship was obtained at the district court Lübeck which took place on Jan 17 with experts of the classification society and representatives of the competent regulatory authorities at the berth of the ship in Travemünde. During the control the findings were fully confirmed by the experts: On board the controlled vessel additional pipes were installed and existing pipes sealed with blind flanges, so that untreated black and gray water was pumped outside bypassing the stages of the wastewater treatment plant. By bypassing the cleaning and treatment processes of the plant, untreated feces were pumped out over a long period of time and by a multitude of passengers on numerous voyages in the summer months. The water police in Lübeck-Travemünde launched a criminal investigation for suspected water pollution and other investigations for breaches of inland shipping regulations.

Oiltanking, Vopak LNG and Gasunie LNG are in the process of establishing the joint venture “German LNG Terminal GmbH”
Gasunie LNG Holding B.V., Oiltanking GmbH and Vopak LNG Holding B.V. are in the process of establishing the joint venture ‘German LNG Terminal GmbH’. The purpose of the joint venture is to build, own and operate an LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) import terminal in northern Germany. The terminal will also provide LNG distribution services. To attract interest from the market and to gain detailed insight in customer demand, an Open Season will be launched. The Open Season starts on January 17, 2018. The terminal offers the opportunity to further diversify Germany’s sources of gas supply and facilitates access to LNG as an alternative low-emission fuel for ships and trucks. The development of German LNG Terminal is currently focusing on the location Brunsbüttel. The presence of the adjacent port of Hamburg and the industrial companies located in the region represents an attractive business environment. Via the Kiel Canal, in the direct proximity of the intended terminal, the Scandinavian countries and the Baltic States can easily be reached. The start of the Open Season marks an important milestone in the development of Germany’s first LNG terminal. The aim of the facility is to offer the following services: discharge and loading of LNG ships, storage of LNG, regasification and send out into the natural gas network and LNG distribution via trucks and barges. In July 2017, the three companies received EU antitrust approval to establish a joint venture. Subject to, among others, the outcome of the Open Season start of construction of Germany’s first LNG terminal is envisaged after the final investment decision in 2019, to be ready for operations in Q4 2022.

 Sanchi  (Buques petroleros)

Bunker fuel may be leaking from Sanchi wreck
Bunker fuel may now be leaking from the "Sanchi" in the East China Sea last Sunday, China’s State Oceanic Administration (SOA) said on Jan 18. Several previously unreported slicks were spotted by planes, vessels and satellites near the sinking site. The SOA said one, seen 2.5 kilometers east of the wreck site around 6 a.m. may indicate leakage of extremely toxic bunker fuel, the heavy oil used in ship engines. It remained unclear how much bunker fuel was left aboard the tanker when it sank. Experts estimated it may have been carrying about 1,000 tonnes at the time it collided with the "CF Crystal". The Sanchi was carrying 136,000 tonnes of condensate before the accident, most of which evaporated after the stricken shipped burned for days. The SOA said it will continue carrying out monitoring and environmental impact assessment works. Three slicks covering a combined area of 20.7 square km were spotted by satellite, with the largest in size 17.4 square km, the SOA said in its statement. That combined area was 80.3 square km smaller than the total reported a day earlier. But water samples taken at four of the total 22 spill sites detected so far were found to exceed petroleum substance standards. Report with photos: https://www.reuters.com/a...

Tricky medevac off Auckland
A seriously ill woman aboard the "Norwegian Jewel" sparked a challenging rescue in choppy seas off Auckland in the night of Dec 18, 2018. The Coastguard was called around 8.15 p.m. to help the passenger who urgently needed to be taken to hospital. The NZ Coastguard search and rescue catamaran "Lion Foundation Rescue" was sent, picking up St John paramedics on the way, and arrived at the cruise ship by 9.30 p.m. The ship had begun to turn back near Kawau Island and was north of Rangitoto at the time. Battling 2 meter swells, gusting 37 knot winds and poor visibility, a paramedic climbed aboard the cruise ship through the pilot's boarding station. After stabilising the woman, the patient and paramedic were lowered onto the rescue boat in a lifeboat, along with her partner in a tricky transfer. A Ports of Auckland pilot was sent out to safely guide the ship back to the anchorage place around the back of Rangitoto. The Coastguard took the woman back to shore, where an ambulance was waiting. She was taken to Auckland City Hospital and the "Norwegian Jewel" resumed its journey to Sydney. Report with photo: https://www.stuff.co.nz/t...

 Kea Trader  (Buques de carga)

Tender for wreck removal issued
While the unloading of containers continued and no pollution was to report, the Lomar, owner of the "Kea Trader" grounded off Maré since alost 200 days, has just launched an international tender to remove the wreck. The examination of the offers was in progress and must be completed by the end of January, before being presented to the State. The operations aboard the "Kea Trader" remain depenendant on the weather conditions. The rising swell which turned from South-East to South-West has prevented the work of teams on board in recent days. The reinforced swell also caused a new modification of the orientation of the bow of the ship. However, the flights and daily observations made by the tugs on the "Kea Trader" have revealed no signs of pollution as a result of this movement. The process of systematic landing of cargo and development continued. Two more containers were landed on the barge "Hibiscus", bringing to 97 the number of containers remaining on board. The elements likely to constitute floating debris were gradually being removed. The accommodation, block was almost entirely emptied. The dismantling work on false ceilings and partitions has also begun. French report with photo: https://ladepeche.nc/2018/01/19/va-enlever-kea-trader/

 Genessa  (Buques petroleros)

Fire spreading over tanker
The fire aboard the "Genessa", currently at OTB Kandla outer roads, carrying 26000 metric tonnes of gas oil, was ´ rapidly growing. There was a blast in the port side of the vessel and all the fire fighting tugs were instructed to keep a safe distance away from the tanker as it was feared that the fire may catch up the cargo. The vessel has also started tilting to one side, probably because of water accumulation caused by continuous spraying. The fire fighting operations on Jan 18 had been carried out with 10 tugs — seven from Kandla port, one from Adani's Mundra port and and two from Reliance's Sikka terminal. All inward movements are currently cancelled by the port authority, and only skeleton outward movements were to be carried out. The port has also instructed all the vessels anchored at Kandla Outer Roads to heave up their respective anchors and move to a safer distance further to sea, minimum five nautical miles. The crew of 26 and the master, with abundant efforts of tug personnel were safety disembarked, however, the Chief Engineer and the Electric Officer were already unconscious, and one of them, the 35-year-old Edwin Fernando, died in hospital. The other, Nitin Madhukar from Borivli, remained critical.
