Apollo Plans to sink ferry in peril
Oct 15 14:19

The 'Apollo' returns to haunt the Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ) and the government. The plan to sink the ship and turn it into an artificial reef in the St. Lawrence is in peril. The nonprofit company behind the idea is no longer able to afford the bills that could still be in the millions of dollars.
Since its purchase in 2019, the ferry has already cost the STQ more than $ 5.5 million. Of this amount, $ 2 million was paid in the fall of 2019 to the Société Apollo de Godbout to support the work to sink the ship dating from 1970 in the bay of Godbout. The STQ sold it for $ 1.
Actually there is more or less $ 180,000 in the possession of the Apollo Company which is insufficient to ensure the rest of the work or even to move the ship from the port of Quebec. They started with $ 1.7M and we have 30% of the work done. They expected a bill of $ 2.5 million. Various discoveries during the work to prepare it for sinking, like asbestos, made the bill jump. The vessel had been purchased without inspection by the STQ from Labrador Marine, in 2019. They contacted the Ministry of the Economy for financial assistance and requested a quote from another company to finish the work as well as a price to dismantle the entire ship.
On the side of the Ocean Group, which had been commissioned to carry out the work, it was feared that the ship would sink if it is not maintained this winter due to its condition. The management claimed to have had discussions with the STQ, the Apollo Company, the Coast Guard and Transport Canada. In January, the Apollo Company gave the green light to the Ocean Group. The work was halted in May due to a lack of funds.

GEO SEARCHER Crew of sunken ship returned home
Oct 30 11:53

The South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) concluded the biggest sea rescue mission in SA in over a decade. The 60 crew members of the 'Geo Searcher', 47 of whom were South African citizens, arrived in Cape Town on Oct 26 at the end of a more than 3,000-mile journey. Everyone was reported to be healthy and in good spirits, although two individuals had suffered minor injuries during the evacuation of the ship to Gough Island in the South Atlantic which had struck a rock and began sinking at the stern on Oct 15. The 62 crew members evacuated in life rafts and the ship’s small boats taking shelter at a weather station on Gough Island.
SAMSA through its Sea Watch and Rescue operation at the Maritime Rescue Coordinating Centre (MRCC) in Cape Town received the distress calls from the Geo Searcher. They coordinated the rescue operations with various state departments, including the Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries (DEFF), owners of the 'SA Agulhas II', which disembarked a group of passengers that were on board from a research mission and departed Cape Town late on Oct 15 to undertake the rescue. Captain Knowledge Bengu encountered heavy seas and winds delaying their arrival at the remote island. It took the 'SA Agulhas II' four days to reach Gough Island. When it reached the island on Oct 20, the weather was unfavourable to conduct any flight operations, and it was decided to call off the operation for the day. The following day, as soon as there was a weather opening, the airlift began from Gough despite continuing challenges with the weather. It had been determined that the seas were too rough to transfer the crew by boat from the island. The airlift required more than two hours to complete.
In addition to rescuing the stranded seafarers, the 'SA Agulhas II' also conducted an environmental inspection for oil spillage around the wrecksite before departing the area. They proceeded to Tristan da Cunha for a brief stop, where two residents from the rescued crew were returned home.
After a four-day voyage to return to Cape Town, the 'SA Agulhas II' with the remaining 60 rescued seafarers berthed at Eastern Mole 1 at the port of Cape Town on the evening of Oct 26. After being cleared immigration and health inspections, the seafarers disembarked.

GEO SEARCHER Sinking ship abandoned
Oct 16 00:21

The 62 crew members of the 'Geo Searcher' had to abandoned ship on Oct 15, 2020, at 10.30 p.m. about one mile off the northern coast of Gogh island. The vessel was engaged in research work in the island waters when it struck a rock off the island in the morning and began taking on water in the engine room. The vessel subsequently sank in the afternoon.
SA manages a research station on Gough Island, which is only 11 km long with an area of 91km². The seafarers managed to climb into lifeboats and other on-board small craft before making their way from the northern point of the island around to the southern region close to the SA research station.
They were assisted ashore and are all reported to be accounted for. It has been reported that one seafarer sustained some minor injuries. The South African research vessel 'SA Agulhas II' has been dispatched to collect the seafarers, and is expected to reach Gough Island on Oct 19.

FSO NABARIMA ENI got permission to offload crude from troubled FSO
Oct 31 22:40

The USA granted the Italian-based multinational oil company ENI permission to begin offloading crude oil from the FSO 'Nabarima' without breaking international sanctions on Venezuela. The vessel which carried almost 1.3 million barrels of crude oil was in danger of causing an environmental disaster after it was highlighted that it was listing. ENI will also be able to repair the vessel as permission for such was received on Oct 29. The company was currently awaiting permission from Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), the Venezuelan state-owned oil company, before engaging in the process. Earlierin October, a TT delegation also conducted an assessment of the FSO Nabarima to determine the severity of the matter and reported that the ship was in stable condition, but there remained concerns over the lengthy period to remove the crude oil from the vessel. On October 22, the Minister of Energy and Energy Industries, Franklin Khan, stated that a recommendation of the TT team was to speed up the process of the offloading procedure to minimise any additional risks.
ENI was on standby to conduct the ship-to-ship transfers using “state-of-the-art solutions” upon confirmation from the US that this process would be in line with the international sanctions' regime. ENI have also confirmed that a crude tanker, the 'Delta Captain', which is currently in the Caribbean Sea, had been chartered by ENI to serve the recovery plan agreed with PDVSA. Over the past two months the vessel has never entered Venezuelan waters and is currently in international waters.

FSO found safe during inspection
Oct 26 13:08

The 'Nabarima' was no longer posing a major environmental risk, said Trinidad and Tobago’s government on Oct 21.Observations made by a team of experts who visited the FSO showed no visible tilt or water ingress within the vessel. The team was not allowed to take photos or videos of the event. The Venezuelan representatives who accompanied the Trinidadian experts who inspected the vessel took photos, which they will request.
The team — which consisted of senior petroleum engineer Craig Boodoo, Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard officer Lt Warner and port state inspector of the Maritime Services Division, Michael Daniel— was taken on a fly-around of the vessel but that they observed no visible tilt.
The team also inspected other areas of the vessel, including the control room, boiler room, pumps and bilge tanks and noticed no water ingress. The tour lasted about three hours. Their report indicated that everything seemed to have been fine. There was no evidence of water ingress of water presence. Two generators were operational, one was on standby…all systems appeared to be functional. The double hull was intact. The representatives were open about the incidents which took place in September which have since been rectified. They also showed their oil spill response plan which was deemed satisfactory. Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela both share an oil spill contingency plan which could be invoked by either party if there was imminent danger. The tanker 'Icaro' was due to offload the crude, which would most likely be transferred to Venezuela. The offloading of the 'Nabarima'’s 1.3 million barrels of oil would take between 30-35 days. The transfer process that was currently taking place, albeit slow, was considered very safe.
There has been much diplomatic activity behind the scenes, with constant communication between both nations. A follow-up visit was requested to monitor the transfer as operations continue.

Part of oil to be lightered
Oct 21 21:18

The 'Icaro', a tanker operated by the Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), a Venezuelan state oil company, approached the 'Nabarima' on Oct 20 at 2.37 p.m, where it was expected to receive a shipment of the stored oil amid environmental concerns. The PDVSA planned to offload some of the oil on board via a ship-to-ship (STS) transfer involving the 'Icaro'.

Maa Fuel removal nearly completed
Oct 31 22:14

The removal of oil from the 'Maa' and was likely to come to an end by Nov 1. The Visakhapatnam-based Gill Marines, a company that has been entrusted with the operation of removing all forms of oils in the first phase of the salvage operation, has already removed 1.05 tons of oil as of Oct 31. The operation started about a week ago, and 15 tons were remaining. Four high-power pumps were used with external diesel generator support, and the oil was pumped into 10 tankers through a pipeline. Once all the oil is pumped out, the salvors will take up the beach cleaning operation along with the Indian Coast Guard. The threat of oil spill is now mitigated and the second phase to refloat the ship can commence. The Protection and Indemnity Club which is responsible for overseeing the operation on behalf of the owners of the ship, has appointed the company Resolve Marine to take up the salvage operation.

More oil in tanks than expected
Oct 29 11:40

The transfer of the fuel from the 'MAa was in progress as of Oct 28, and the task was expected to take a couple of days further. The Gill Marine found that the fuel quantity left in the vessel was more than what they expected initially. Instead of draing 50 tons, they already siphoned 70 tons, and 10 tons more were remaining in the tanks which were to be cleared within two days. Once the fuel tanks have been emptied, the ship will be thorough scanned to check the possibility of any leakage before initiating the refloating operation. It would take at least 20 to 30 days for this work to commence. Since the ship's anchor chains were parted while it was drifting ashore, VPT officials expected a part of the ship would have suffered damage. After a detailed analysis on the magnitude of the damage, the slavage will begin by considering every measure to prevent any further damage to the ship. Discussions were on with a Mumbai-based company to take up the task which, once started, was expected to take 2-3 days.

Resolve Marine tasked with refloating ops
Oct 28 10:32

The owners of the 'Maa' have contracted the Resolve Marine Pvt Ltd. to carry out the salvage operations and to refloat the vessel near Visakhapatnam. The salvage operations can be initiated only after the removal of oil from the vessel to avoid any risk of pollution. No water ingress or oil pollution has been reported so far. The vessel owner's Protection and Indemnity Club has appointed the MS Gill Marine to remove the fuel from the tanks. The Gill Marine has obtained permission from various government authorities to take up the work. Since there was no road access to the site of the grounded vessel, a temporary road was laid by the vendor to mobilize men and material. The Visakhapatnam Port Trust (VPT) also has mobilized its own oil spill response equipment with a dedicated team to the site to cater to any untoward oil pollution around the vessel. It may take two to three days to transfer the oil from the grounded ship to shore. The vessel had 41 tons of oil and nine tons of diesel on board. The 15 Bangladeshi crew members were still on board. The Gill Marine has provided a generator to the vessel. Another agency was supplying food, water, and other essential goods to the crew.

ZAPOLYARYE Auction to be finalized
Oct 19 21:13

The ;otril Port Authority will meet the board of directors to finalize the abandonment file of the 'Zapolyarye' and draw up the specifications for the public auction. A dozen companies are interested in buying the ship which has been abandoned in the port of Motril with the crew on board for two years after the bankruptcy of the MSCO shipping company, the owner of the ship.
The court authorized the sale of the ship in November 2019, however a judicial process - already resolved in favour of the port - paralyzed the auction of the freighter and, when the procedures to launch the tender could be resumed, the outbreak of the corona crisis delayed the procedure again. As of Oct 27, 2020 the date set for the council to meet, the specifications will be launched for companies opting to purchase the freighter, valued at 3.18 million Euros. A dozen of them have already been interested in the acquisition.
The ship is kept with a minimum crew of seven Russian sailors, after some of the crew decided to abandon it. The shipping company delayed the payment of their wages and they remained in the dark for a long time. In the time the freighter has been docked at the dock, it has incurred a debt of more than one million Euros with the port. Once the ship is sold, the money will be used to defray the costs it has incurred for the port and the rest will become part of the public treasury. The shipping company will be in charge of repatriating the crew. At the moment, there were no claims from the maritime workers union, so the sailors were collecting their wages.

A crew member of the 'MSC Mia Summer', which was sailing 120 nautical miles off the coast of Larnaca enroute from Port Said to Constanta, was hoisted in the afternoon of Oct 18, 2020, after the Larnaca Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) dispatched a helicopter. The crew aboard the vessel sent a message to shore requiring immediate medical assistance. Once it received the call for help, the JRCC activated the Nearchos national search and rescue plan and dispatched a special police aircraft with a doctor on board.
The injured crew member was transported to Larnaca general hospital, where he arrived at 6.20 p.m.

KEN REI Crew tested again
Oct 29 10:49

The crew of the 'Ken Rei' were all tested for COVID-19 again on Oct 28 at the Higgins & Geddis Wharves in Napier. They have all returned a second negative test result. The ship was due to depart Napier and head for Tauranga on Oct 29.

Ship in port after isolation
Oct 27 13:19

The 'Ken Rei' has docked at Napier Port on Oct 27 after its crew of 21 completed 14 days in isolation. They were close contacts of an engineer who tested positive after spending time on the logging ship when it was berthed in New Plymouth. The vessel had been off the Napier coast for a fortnight and the crew have tested negative. It berthed at 6 a.m. at the Higgins & Geddis Wharves and was expected to depart on Oct 29.

Doctors to be dropped off on bulk carrier for testings
Oct 22 21:04

A team of doctors was to be helicoptered to the 'Ken Rei' off the coast of Napier to do Covid-19 swab tests. One of the Auckland port workers who has tested positive for the virus worked on the vessel in the past fortnight. That led Napier Port to refuse entry to the vessel and requested it to remain offshore for a 14-day isolation period. Now the ship's charter company has contracted doctors from a Napier medical centre to collect swabs from the crew. Preparation for the flight and safety protocols had been worked out over the last two days. Weather permitting, a helicopter would fly out to the ship on Oct 22.

MSC Grandiosa Passengers not allowed to go on shore due to COVID 19 suspicion
Oct 19 21:58

The 'MSC Grandiosa' docked at Valletta Cruise Port in the morning of Oct 16, 2020, but was not allowed to disembark passengers by the health authoirties after a suspected case of COVID-19 on board. The Maltese health authorities did not grant permission for passengers to be able to come on shore, and the ship left Valletta port. Enroute to Malta from Palermo, the ship's captain had notified the Maltese authorities of a suspected COVID-19 case on board. The case has not been confirmed yet because further tests were being done. The cruise ship was not given clearance to disembark its passengers by the Maltese health authorities. It was allowed to dock in Malta on what is a technical stop to take on supplies and continued with its voyage. The ship left Palermo on Oct 14. On Oct 18 it docked in Genova.

IVS MERLION Historical Covid-19 case being investigated
Oct 19 22:47

The NZ Ministry of Health was investigating a suspected historical case of COVID-19 of a crew member of the 'IVS Merlion' at the Port of Tauranga. The person returned a weak positive test with a high CT value, whichindicated an old infection. It appeared most likely that the crew member had COVID-19 some time ago and was no longer infectious. The 'IVS Merlion' arrived at Tauranga on Oct 15, 2020, after departing Indonesia on Sep 24. The infection has not been passed on to any other crew member - they have all tested negative and have been on board the vessel for three weeks.

SA Agulhas II Research vessel on rescue mission
Oct 20 17:52

The 'SA Agulhas II' arrived at Gough Island on Oct 20, 2020, at 12.40 p.m. SA Time after departing Cape Town on Oct 17. The vessel was sent to the island to bring the crew of the research vessel 'Geo Searcher' back to South Africa which had sunk last week. With the weather conditions unfavourable for any boat work to transfer survivors from the island to the vessel, it was decided that all transfers would have to be conducted by helicopter as it would present less risk in the prevailing weather conditions.
The first flight departed the vessel at 3.15 p.m., however it could not land and had to return back to the vessel due to strong winds gusting up to 40 knots. The operation will resume once weather conditions improve.
The current plan is to embark all 62 crew members on the 'SA Agulhas II' before heading to Tristan da Cunha to drop the two Tristanian survivors from where the vessel will then proceed to Cape Town.
The arrival in Cape Town will be dependent on when the crew can be all safely embarked on the vessel along with weather conditions that may affect the sailing time. All indications are that it will take approximately 4 to 5 days before the vessel arrives in Cape Town.

COLOR FANTASY Ferry laid up due to corona crisis
Oct 20 17:58

Color Line has decided to reduce the capacity on the Oslo-Kiel route and will lay up the 'Color Fantasy' until the corona infection situation and the authorities' travel restrictions have changed. This means that Color Line was sending another 400 employees home. The reduced timetable will be introduced from Nov 4, when the 'Color Magic' will sail on the route in an adapted timetable with goods and passengers. Passengers can only buy a return ticket from Oslo without the possibility of going ashore in Kiel.
"Unfortunately, the reduction in capacity is once again necessary, and it is crucial that the government and the Storting come up with compensation schemes both in the autumn and next year," said the CEO Trond Kleivdal of Color Line.
A total of 1,000 employees of the Color Line have now been sent home, while a further 300 employees have resigned, mainly through voluntary schemes. Fjord Line announced that the routes Bergen-Hirtshals and Langesund-Hirtshals will be closed down for the rest of the year.

Lily E Ship left Waterford after repairs
Oct 30 09:57

Repairs on the 'Lily E' have been completed on Oct 28. The vessel had suffered damage to the electrical control panel, but no structural damage has been reported. Seawater entered the vent in the control room and poured onto the electrical control panel, resulting in a short circuit.A part of the cargo has been discharged and moved by road to its destination on Oct 24. The remaining cargo was discharged and moved on Oct 27 and Oct 28. The vessel sailed on Oct 28, bound for Aveiro with an ETA as of Nov 1.

Lily E safe in port
Oct 21 20:53

The 'Lily E' has been towed back to Waterford Port at Belview in the afternoon of Oct 21. The ship had drifted dangerously close to a rocky shore at Hook Head and was taken to Waterford Port under tow by the tug 'Tramontane' which was assisted by the tug 'Bargarth'.
The ship will be inspected by Department of Transport Marine Survey Office personnel and it is understood the all nine crew members were said to be well. They had raised the alarm on Oct 20 at 3 p.m. after the vessel lost power about two nautical miles from Hook Head, County Wexford. RNLI boats from Dunmore East, Kilmore Quay and Rosslare were launched, as well as the R117 helicopter based at Waterford Airport.
The lifeboat crews had to contend with force eight winds and six-metre high waves. While they were waiting for the tug to arrive, they had to stop the vessel ending up on the rocks at Hook Head. Two boats  made an attempt to initiate a tow, but the first couple of attempts failed.

Lily E disabled off Waterford
Oct 20 18:18

In the morning of Oct 20, 2020, the 'Lily E', enroute from Szczecin with a cargo of coal and a crew of nine on board, lost power n bad weather conditions off the coast of Waterford while approaching its port of destination, New Ross, and drifted southwards. At midday she drifted in northern direction and was two nautical miles south of Hook Head. Three RNLI lifeboats were called to assist at 2.45 p.m., the lifeboat 14-17 (MMSI: 232002410), 16-18 (MMSI: 235050725) and 17-43 (MMSI: 235010875) from Dunmore East, Kilmore Quay and Rosslare. Around eight volunteer crew members were on board each lifeboat. They were working in extremely challenging conditions in the afternoon with strong winds and large swells Also the Waterford based Coast Guard helicopter was taking part in the SAR operation.
In force eight conditions, the lifeboats from Dunmore East and Kilmore Quay established tow lines onto the vessel which was then very close to the rocks. The two lifeboats maintained the tow and kept the ship away from shore. The Rosslare RNLI boat stood by.
Battling strong waves over six metres high, the three lifeboat crews worked together to ensure the vessel stayed away from the rocks until the tow was passed to the tug from Waterford – the 'Tramontane' – on its arrival at 5.40 p.m. Escorting the vessels until they reached the calmer waters of Waterford Harbour in the early hours of Oct 21, the lifeboat crews were eventually stood down and returned to station. While the tug made progress towards Waterford harbour there were fears that the tow lines would break so it was decided to drop anchor. About 1,5 hours later the tow line parted, and the vessel would potentially have blocked the navigational channel in the harbour and run aground if the anchor would not have been down. On Oct 21 the salvage operation was continued. The vessel was to be brought to Waterford once the fog had cleared.

Grounded ship broke in two after ten days
Oct 20 18:40

Asiatrans Vietnam has chartered two vessels of the Tan Cang Offshore Services JSC to investigate the grounding site of the 'CMA CGM Jakarta' near Lang Co Town, Duong Dang Trung, to deploy oil spill monitoring buoys, oil containment booms and absorbent pads. Technicians were hired to carry out a visual inspection and they had yet to detect possible leakages of oil from the vessel while local authorities continued to monitor the area. On Oct 18 the 'CMA CGM Jakarta' broke in two at the eastern coast of Vietnam, where it had grounded in the night, Oct 9, due to strong waves. Both halves were separated 25 meters. Vietnam's Department of Natural Resources and Environment was monitoring the situation regarding possible oil spills as the vessel had approximately 300 tons of oil on board. The Thua Thien Hue Provincial People's Committee has directed the Provincial Border Guard Command to coordinate with the relevant agencies such as the provincial Military Command and Police, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment, the Department of Industry and Trade, and other local authorities.

Normandie Ferry assisted distressed yacht
Oct 20 20:23

On Oct 17, 2020, the 'Normandie' was asked to divert to assess the situation of the 'Almana IV'. At 11:55 a.m. the CROSS Jobourg received a call from a father worried about his daughter and her friend, both of whom had left aboard the 'Almana IV'. The father was monitoring the voyage with a GPS application but had not received a position for two hours then. 20 minutes later, the CROSS broadcast an emergency message. Contact with the girl’s mother was made to get more information about the ship. A new consistent position was received by the GPS application with a sailboat on its way to Boulogne-sur-Mer.
Several attempts to contact it by VHF remained unsuccessful. The previous owner of the sailboat was contacted and reported the telephone number of the second person on board. The attempted call also remained unanswered.
Several merchant ships and the hydrographic vessel 'La Pérouse' of the French Navy, which was in the area, also made VHF calls without success. The search continued throughout the day.
After 6 p.m., while the last GPS positions suggested that the' Almana IV' was adrift, the ferry 'Mont St Michel' reported a sailboat corresponding to the description nine nautical miles behind it. The 'Normandie' , after diverting to the position, in turn spotted the boat and its crew . They were healthy, but reported an engine problem and a water ingress. The boat had to be towed to Fécamp. The towage was carried out by the lifeboat of the local SNSM station which was tasked at 7.40 p.m. In the night of Oct 17 the yacht was safely pulled into the port of Fécamp.

FV ARPEGE Fishing boss sent to prison for bringing a bomb into port
Oct 20 20:53

On Oct 6, 2020, Alexis Hagneré, a fishing boss from Boulogne-sur-Mer (Pas-de-Calais) was sentenced to ten months in prison and a fine of € 3,000 for bringing back to port an American 250 kg bomb from World War II caught in his trawl on Sep 27, 2019, which he had caught in his net.
The transport code provides that, faced with such a discovery, the captain of a ship alerts the CROSS, a semaphore or the nearest harbour master's office and re-submerges the dangerous device on an offshore drop zone. Instead, the bomb containing some 145 kg of explosive was landed in the port of Hauts-de-France.
A few days later, its defusing by demining divers from the French Navy required the evacuation of the auction quay and some 600 inhabitants of the neighborhood, the confinement of 25,000 people living within a radius of 1,500 meters, the closure of the city center. Nearly 400 police, firefighters and soldiers have been deployed to secure operations.

Oruc Reis with deactivaded AIS off Kastellorizo
Oct 20 22:19

The 'Oruc Reis' was sailing 10 miles off the Greek island Kastellorizo on Oct 20. The vessel, which had its AIS transmitter off, was heading northeast and, assuming it continues its course at its current speed, it was expected to reach a point 12 nautical miles off Kastellorizo by noon.
The offshore supply ships 'Ataman' and 'Cengiz Han', which were escorting the 'Oruc Reis', had their transmitters on.
The 'Oruc Reis' has been conducting seismic surveys in the area. The navigational warning (Navtex) issued by Turkey on October 12 expires on Oct 22.
On Oct 19, the Turkish Energy Minister Fatih Donmez said in an interview that the 'Oruc Reis' was making 2D seismic surveys” and estimated that it will complete its work in two months. If the ship finds an area with high expectations, Ankara will deploy a drilling ship.

MAERSK HALIFAX Accident investigation report published in deadly fire in 2018
Oct 20 22:54

A.P. Moller – Maersk, parent company to the world’s leading shipping line, has responded to the final investigation report into the fatal fire on board the 'Maersk Honam' on March 6, 2018, one of the worst accidents in the history of the company and the container shipping industry at large.
The 'Maersk Honam' - now 'Maersk Halifax' - caught fire while underway in the Arabian Sea towards the Suez Canal. At the time of the incident, the ship was carrying 7,860 containers, corresponding to 12,416 twenty-foot equivalent units.
Despite the firefighting efforts which included releasing the vessels’ CO2 system into the cargo hold, the first spread uncontrollably for week, encompassing the entire bow from the superstructure forward. Five crew members lost their lives in the incident.
The vessel was eventually towed to Jebel Ali for salvage. It was later cut up and transported to South Korea where it was rebuilt and returned to service August 2019 under the name 'Maersk Halifax'.
The investigation was led by the Transport Safety Investigation Bureau (TSIB) of Singapore, where the vessel was registered. Maersk also conducted its own independent investigation.
The TSIB report was issued on Oct 6, 2020. The investigation identified that the most likely source of the fire was in a block of 54 containers with IMO Class 9 Dangerous Cargo stowed inside cargo hold no. 3 in the forepart of the vessel. However, the actual cause of the fire was not conclusive, rather investigators said it was highly likely to originate from the decomposition of dangerous cargo generating intense heat, enabling the fire to rapidly develop out of control.
As a result of the incident, Maersk introduced new guidelines for stowing dangerous goods on it fleet of vessels. The report included nine safety recommendations, including five to Maersk and four to the flag state.

CONCEPTION Vote on cause of fire expected
Oct 21 19:39

Federal authorities were expected to vote on Oct 20, 2020, on the possible cause for the fire on board the 'Conception' on Sep 2, 2019, which killed 34 people off the coast of Southern California. The pre-dawn blaze aboard the passenger vessel led to both criminal and safety investigations. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will vote on their investigation?s findings, the fire's probable cause and any recommendations that could potentially prevent further incidents. NTSB investigators said in a report released last month that the cause remains undetermined but a possible ignition point was, phones and other electronics plugged into outlets.
One crew member told authorities that he saw sparks when he plugged in his cellphone hours before the fire. The surviving crew members also told investigators that they were never instructed on emergency procedures. It was to be noted that five crew members, including the captain, were asleep when the fire broke out, an apparent violation of Coast Guard regulations requiring a roving watch, and managed to escape by jumping into the water.

MV SOFRANA SURVILLE Two crew members tested positive for COVID 19
Oct 24 22:50

Two crew members have tested positive for Covid-19 aboard the 'Sofrana Surville' and thought to be the source of New Zealand's recent community infections. All 19 crew members of the vessel were tested after a New Zealand port worker who had been on the ship tested positive for Covid-19 on Oct 17. Arrangements were now underway to transfer the two crew members who returned with positive Covid-19 results to a hospital ashore. The vessel remained at anchor in pos. 26° 40.60' S 153° 17.17' E, being quarantined off Mooloolaba. The ship was on passage between Noumea and Brisbane when the health alert was raised.

Ship held off Queensland due to corona virus fear
Oct 21 21:15

As there are fears the crew of the 'Sofrana Surville' which was anchored off Queensland could be carrying a strain of COVID-19, she was prevented from docking in Brisbane, and was instead anchored off the coast of Mooloolaba on Oct 21, 2020. The 'Sofrana Surville' was originally set to arrive in Queensland, but was anchored off the Sunshine Coast. All 19 crew members on board the vessel were tested by Queensland Health on Oct 20 after an engineer, who worked on-board, tested positive in New Zealand on Oct 17. It was believed he caught the virus while working on the vessel off Auckland on Oct 12 and 13. The crew would also undergo serology testing. The vessel first entered Queensland’s waters on Oct 19, after departing Auckland on Oct 14 and travelling via Noumea on Occt 17. There have been no reports of illness on board.”

FSO NABARIMA ENI got permission to offload crude from troubled FSO
Oct 31 22:40

The USA granted the Italian-based multinational oil company ENI permission to begin offloading crude oil from the FSO 'Nabarima' without breaking international sanctions on Venezuela. The vessel which carried almost 1.3 million barrels of crude oil was in danger of causing an environmental disaster after it was highlighted that it was listing. ENI will also be able to repair the vessel as permission for such was received on Oct 29. The company was currently awaiting permission from Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), the Venezuelan state-owned oil company, before engaging in the process. Earlierin October, a TT delegation also conducted an assessment of the FSO Nabarima to determine the severity of the matter and reported that the ship was in stable condition, but there remained concerns over the lengthy period to remove the crude oil from the vessel. On October 22, the Minister of Energy and Energy Industries, Franklin Khan, stated that a recommendation of the TT team was to speed up the process of the offloading procedure to minimise any additional risks.
ENI was on standby to conduct the ship-to-ship transfers using “state-of-the-art solutions” upon confirmation from the US that this process would be in line with the international sanctions' regime. ENI have also confirmed that a crude tanker, the 'Delta Captain', which is currently in the Caribbean Sea, had been chartered by ENI to serve the recovery plan agreed with PDVSA. Over the past two months the vessel has never entered Venezuelan waters and is currently in international waters.

FSO found safe during inspection
Oct 26 13:08

The 'Nabarima' was no longer posing a major environmental risk, said Trinidad and Tobago’s government on Oct 21.Observations made by a team of experts who visited the FSO showed no visible tilt or water ingress within the vessel. The team was not allowed to take photos or videos of the event. The Venezuelan representatives who accompanied the Trinidadian experts who inspected the vessel took photos, which they will request.
The team — which consisted of senior petroleum engineer Craig Boodoo, Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard officer Lt Warner and port state inspector of the Maritime Services Division, Michael Daniel— was taken on a fly-around of the vessel but that they observed no visible tilt.
The team also inspected other areas of the vessel, including the control room, boiler room, pumps and bilge tanks and noticed no water ingress. The tour lasted about three hours. Their report indicated that everything seemed to have been fine. There was no evidence of water ingress of water presence. Two generators were operational, one was on standby…all systems appeared to be functional. The double hull was intact. The representatives were open about the incidents which took place in September which have since been rectified. They also showed their oil spill response plan which was deemed satisfactory. Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela both share an oil spill contingency plan which could be invoked by either party if there was imminent danger. The tanker 'Icaro' was due to offload the crude, which would most likely be transferred to Venezuela. The offloading of the 'Nabarima'’s 1.3 million barrels of oil would take between 30-35 days. The transfer process that was currently taking place, albeit slow, was considered very safe.
There has been much diplomatic activity behind the scenes, with constant communication between both nations. A follow-up visit was requested to monitor the transfer as operations continue.

Part of oil to be lightered
Oct 21 21:18

The 'Icaro', a tanker operated by the Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), a Venezuelan state oil company, approached the 'Nabarima' on Oct 20 at 2.37 p.m, where it was expected to receive a shipment of the stored oil amid environmental concerns. The PDVSA planned to offload some of the oil on board via a ship-to-ship (STS) transfer involving the 'Icaro'. The Venezuelan barge 'Inmaculada' must also participate in the STS operation, which presents its own risks.

Errina Ship Security Alert System was an error
Oct 27 13:17

It has been confirmed that the Ship Security Alert System (SSAS) activated on the 'Errina' appeared to have been in error and the vessel has subsequently been shown to be at a location South of Lagos. Indications were that the vessel position was 200 miles West Sao Tome. This position would have been irregular to her known trading pattern. Reporting indicated that the vessel was boarded but all personnel had managed to retreat to the vessel citadel and were subsequently safe and accounted for. Wilst details remain unclear the vessel can be seen to have recorded her departure from Limboh anchorage on Oct 20 at 2.20 p.m. heading in a South West Direction. The vessel ceased broadcasting on AIS at around  3 p.m. The vessel has an established trading pattern between Lomé, Lagos and the wider Niger Delta region. Notably all transits throughout the wider Nigerian EEZ were conducted with AIS off. The Nigerian Navy have recently mounted operations to interdict and arrest any vessel found not broadcasting on AIS.

Tanker and crew safe
Oct 24 22:06

The 'Errina' and its crew were now safe, after the owner - Akron Trade and Transport in the United Arab Emirates - managed to get in touch with the ship. It was still unclear whether the ship has been subjected to a hijacking attempt.
The 'Errina' was 200 nautical miles west of Sao Tome in the Gulf of Guinea when the ship's AIS signal disappeared and the owner lost contact with the ship. Two safety vessels have been in contact with the ship, and both times the crew reported all was well on board. But it was not clear whether it has been attacked or not. On Oct 24 at 7 a.m. it anchored off Lagos.

Ken Rei Crew tested again
Oct 29 10:49

The crew of the 'Ken Rei' were all tested for COVID-19 again on Oct 28 at the Higgins & Geddis Wharves in Napier. They have all returned a second negative test result. The ship was due to depart Napier and head for Tauranga on Oct 29.

Ship in port after isolation
Oct 27 13:19

The 'Ken Rei' has docked at Napier Port on Oct 27 after its crew of 21 completed 14 days in isolation. They were close contacts of an engineer who tested positive after spending time on the logging ship when it was berthed in New Plymouth. The vessel had been off the Napier coast for a fortnight and the crew have tested negative. It berthed at 6 a.m. at the Higgins & Geddis Wharves and was expected to depart on Oct 29.

Doctors to be dropped off on bulk carrier for testings
Oct 22 21:04

A team of doctors was to be helicoptered to the 'Ken Rei' off the coast of Napier to do Covid-19 swab tests. One of the Auckland port workers who has tested positive for the virus worked on the vessel in the past fortnight. That led Napier Port to refuse entry to the vessel and requested it to remain offshore for a 14-day isolation period. Now the ship's charter company has contracted doctors from a Napier medical centre to collect swabs from the crew. Preparation for the flight and safety protocols had been worked out over the last two days. Weather permitting, a helicopter would fly out to the ship on Oct 22.
