440 tons fuel recovered from Thorco Cloud wreck
More than 440 tons of heavy fuel oil was extracted from the tanks of the "Thorco Cloud". The wreck lies in two sections 1,730 meters apart and 70 meters down in the middle of the eastbound traffic lane of the Singapore Strait following a collision in December 2015. The heavy oil in the fuel tanks and in trapped compartments was seen as a major pollution hazard. Both the bow and stern sections contained fuel tanks that required emptying, so the owner, Marship GmbH, supported by the P&I insurance company Standard Club, contracted Jaya Salvage Indonesia early in 2017. Bumi Subsea provided remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and the dynamically positioned Surf Allamanda, owned by Bourbon Offshore. This served as the work platform during the salvage of the trapped fuel by using the Moskito hot tap tool developed in Norway by Miko Marine. Report with photos: https://www.marinelink.co...

Boat with four tanker crew capsized off Little Haven
Four men were marooned on rocks off the coast at Little Haven in the afternoon of Apr 19. 2018, after one of them needed to leave the "Else Marie Theresa" to return home to the Philippines. They left the ship after midday as one of them received news of a death in the family in his home country, the Philippines. He had decided to return home by catching a plane from Cardiff Airport in the afternoon. As their boat approached shore, it capsized, but luckily the men were able to make their way onto some nearby rocks. The inshore RNLI lifeboat from Little and Broad Haven was launched at 1 p.m. and saved the stranded men. The RNLI later returned to retrieve the capsized boat from the water.

Fire damaged hake freezer scuttled as artificial reef
The "Urabain" joined the submarine parks of the Golfo Nuevo in the morning of Apr 19, 2018. The hake freezer had suffered a fire and was sunk to join other ships that are already part of the artificial parks destined for diving. The owner Iberconsa had rendered the wreck useless after the fire so it was decided to scuttle it after emptying liquids as fuel and bilge water in the recent months as well as removing all equipment in order to leave the hull clean and avoid water pollution. The ship had been moored at berth 4 of the pier "Almirante Storni" of Puerto Madryn when it suffered a fire start of September 2017 and was declared a total loss.

Tug doused flames on blazing fishing vessel
On Apr 18, 2018, the "Michelle Sloan" assisted the 47.ft-f/v "Midori" which had caught fire at 9 a.m. 10 miles west of Trinidad, Florida. A crewmember from the distressed fishing vessel contacted another fishing vessel, the "Charlie D", via cell phone to report the fire. The crew of the "Charlie D" in turn contacted the Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay via VHF channel 16, reporting the "Midori" was on fire with five crewmembers preparing to abandon ship. The watchstanders issued an urgent marine information broadcast and dispatched an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter and a 47-foot lifeboat crew to assist. The "Midori" crew donned their survival suits and abandoned ship into a life raft. The fishing vessel "Pacific Bully" rescued all five crew members before the helicopter and boat arrived at the location to find the vessel’s pilothouse engulfed in flames. Shortly after, the nearby "Michelle Sloan" diverted from its course and extinguished the fire aboard the Midori. The Coast Guard was coordinating fuel removal and salvage operations on Apr 19. Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment Humboldt Bay pollution responders have determined the "Midori" was safe to be towed to the Eureka Municipal docks, where the 1,500 gallons of diesel were to be removed. Before the vessel was towed to port, a helicopter crew from Sector Humboldt Bay conducted an additional overflight in the evening of Apr 18 to assess any potential pollution and saw no signs of a spill in the area where the vessel caught fire.

Cruises Altered Due to Pier Damage in Roatan
Due to damage to one of the piers in the cruise port of Roatan, larger cruise ships will no longer be able to dock until repairs are completed. No damage has been detected to the western or the central part of the port, which can accommodate and allows for the arrival of smaller cruise ships. However, the east side of the port has suffered some 35 meters of destruction. This will limit the port’s ability to receiving only smaller vessels. Collectively, the entire port counts on some 205 meters of dockable space. The impact is substantial, as it is, and cruise ship cancellations are being confirmed. Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas was scheduled to arrive in Roatan for the first time on May 10. For the remainder of the season, all of the cruise ship’s scheduled visits to Roatan have been canceled. The ship will now have either a sea day or visit another cruise port in the Western Caribbean.

Gibraltar: Environmentalists Highlight Air Pollution from Cruise Ships
Environmentalists found high concentrations of pollutants in air samples taken at the weekend at the Mediterranean port of Gibraltar. The samples, which were taken next to cruise vessels moored in Campo de Gibraltar [an area between the port proper and the mainland], showed "high concentrations of ultrafine particles", according to international environmentalist groups Ecologistas en Acción from Spain and Nature and Biodiversity Union (NABU) from Germany. "Air pollution levels [were] up to 140 times higher than in areas with clean air" from samples taken on Friday, Saturday and Sunday when different cruise ships visited the port, a statement from NABU said. NABU policy officer Malte Siegert called for the Mediterranean Sea region to be designated a emission control area (ECA) as is already the case in the North and Baltic Seas.

Man runs 100 miles onboard Ruby Princess
Running a 100-mile race is relatively common and entirely commendable. Running 20 100-mile races is getting a little out there, but to each their own. Trekking 100 miles solo through the heart of Utah, fueling on gas station food may be pushing the envelope a bit, but sure, why not? Taking those 100 miles to the high school track in the middle of summer is enough to make your head spin just thinking about it. And then there’s racing 135 miles in Death Valley in “The world’s toughest footrace,” which is just mind-boggling. Well, all of those amazing feats were accomplished by one man, and he may have just topped them all — by "running on water." On March 31, Cory Reese, of Hurricane, took his ultra-running legs and ran 100 miles on the Pacific Ocean — with a little help from the Ruby Princess cruise ship. While on a seven-day cruise along the California Coast with friends and family, Reese used 27 hours and 47 minutes of his vacation — on the first day, no less — to run 100 miles around the deck of the ship.

'Cocaine babe' gets 8 years for smuggling via cruise ship
April 18 (UPI) -- A Canadian woman who helped smuggle $21 million worth of cocaine into Australia on a cruise ship -- and shared photos of her exotic travels online -- was sentenced to eight years in prison Wednesday. Melina Roberge was one of three Canadians who pleaded guilty to importing more than 200 pounds of cocaine on a luxury cruise liner in August 2016. Roberge said she'd been recruited by a "sugar daddy" for the plot, in which the 24-year-old stood to earn as much as $100,000. In June 2016, she was a last-minute replacement for the cruise on the MS Sea Princess. Prosecutors said Roberge and Isabelle Lagace were given first-class tickets on the vessel and spending money, and Roberge was told she would act as a decoy. She was encouraged to post photos on social media to show off the lavish trip. The Sea Princess stopped in Bermuda, Colombia, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Tahiti before arriving in Sydney.

National Maritime Shipping Company Kazmortransflot LLP, a leader in transportation in the Caspian Sea region, has taken delivery of its third Damen Shoalbuster 2709, the last in the current order. The vessels are ideal for operations in the shallow waters of the Caspian Sea and are now playing an important role in the development of oil fields in the Kazakh section of the inland sea and significantly expanding the range of services that Kazmortransflot can offer its clients. The contracts for the three Shoalbusters 2709 were signed in July 2017 between Damen, NMSC Kazmortransflot LLP and Al Hilal Islamic Bank, which arranged the Sharia compliant financing. All three vessels were built at Damen Shipyards Gorinchem with the first two delivered from stock just two months following the signing of the contract. Named Emba and Talas, they were handed over to Kazmortransflot on 5 September 2017 in the Netherlands. The third, named Irgiz, was officially delivered on 15 March this year. The vessels are RMRS classified.

Ocean Liner QE2 Reopens as Luxury Floating Hotel in Dubai
(Reuters 2018-04-18) – The Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) ocean liner has been given a new lease of life as a floating hotel in Dubai, 10 years after the Gulf Arab emirate bought it for $100 million. State-owned Dubai World bought the QE2 from Cunard Line in 2007, but the 2008 financial crisis delayed any plans for the 40-year-old vessel, one of the world’s most famous ships. Now the QE2, permanently moored at Mina Rashid port, has been refurbished based on the original design, from its carpets to the theater and even restaurant menus featuring dishes served in the liner’s heyday. A reception housed in a boat-shaped structure at the quay welcomed guests to Wednesday’s official opening. Large portraits of United Arab Emirates rulers hang opposite portraits of a young Queen Elizabeth II and Samuel Cunard, founder of the company that built the ship. “There is a huge following around the world for the QE2 because of how famous she is and what she stands for,” said Hamza Mustafa, chief executive of PCFC Hotels, the Dubai World subsidiary that owns the ship. The QE2 first entered service in 1969 and has sailed around the world 25 times, carrying more than 2.5 million passengers, the company said.

Greek Ferry Crews Striked on Wednesday
ATHENS, April 18 (Reuters) – Greek ferries remained docked at the country’s ports on Wednesday as seamen, marine engineers and ship cooks walked off the job to protest against planned government reforms which they say will further hurt their labor rights. The 24-hour strike was organized by Greece’s seamen federation (PNO), which said the leftist-led government was preparing a reform allowing non-European flagged transport ships to sail in Greece, leading to job losses for Greek crews. The reform is coming on top of pension cuts, rising unregistered labor and work without any insurance, PNO said. PNO said later on Wednesday that the strike would be extended until Friday morning. “No more blows against our sector,” it said in a statement. Passenger traffic was slow at Piraeus port on Wednesday morning. Traffic has been picking up as the summer, the top tourism season for the Mediterranean country, approaches. Marine unions have strongly resisted reforms liberalizing the shipping sector, which along with tourism is a pivotal industry for Greece, a country of proud seafarers and shipowners.

Container ship ran onto coral reef
The "NYK Joanna" ran aground off Subic Bay in the early morning of April 19, 2018, as it attempted to avoid the collison with a fishing boat. The vessel was leaving Subic Bay and was headed for Manila short past midnight when it veered away to prevent hitting the boat and got into shallows off McMany’s Point. The vessel suffered minimal damage from hard corals. An inspection team from the Philippine Coast Guard and a towage company did not detect any leak in the hull nor a spill. The ship was refloated about 11 a.m. and anchored on a safe place for further assessment that it was seaworthy before being allowed to sail. On Apr 20 it was still moored at the Subic Bay Anchorage.
