First China ro-pax ferry
Wednesday, 18 February 2015 00:00

First China ro-pax ferry First China ro-pax ferry China’s Bohai Shipyard has completed the ro-pax ferry San Sha 1 Hao for service between China’s Port of Qinglan, located in Hainan Province, and Yongxing Island, where she will reduce the sailing time between the two ports from 15 to ten hours compared to the existing ferry, Qiongsha No.3. She was placed in service on 1 January.

Denmark’s Knud E. Hansen was responsible for designing the vessel’s hull lines, as well as the steel structure and the outfitting of machinery. Measuring 122.3m by 21m, the new ship has a displacement of 7,800 tons, an endurance of 6,000 nautical miles, and can accommodate up to 456 passengers and 20 standard trailers.

The vessel has been developed with optimised work flow in mind, which will allow maximum operational efficiency, including boat-to-boat embarkation procedures which are required in those islands which do not have dedicated berthing facilities. JS

 
Sea Wind switches route

Estonian shipper Tallink moved its ro-ro vessel Sea Wind from her current Turku-Långnäs-Stockholm route to the growing Finland-Estonia service on 8 January. Tallink said its cruise ferries, Galaxy and Baltic Princess, have capacity to meet demand from Finland’s west coast city to the Swedish capital, and both call in at Åland on their twice-daily crossover sailings at Mariehamn (daytime) and Långnäs (at night).

Sea Wind was built in Helsingør, Denmark, in 1972 and is the last of three ro-ro ships that sailed under the Seawind Line established in 1998 by Silja Line as its rail-wheeled cargo service. Star Wind was sold in 2005 and Sky Wind in 2007 as rail traffic fell. Sea Wind stopped carrying rail freight in 2010 and passengers two years earlier, when Seawind Line was merged into Tallink.

Now Sea Wind will sail from Helsinki’s Vuosaari Harbour to Tallinn’s Old City Harbour, making the return crossing twice a day, taking 3½ hours. The 15,587gt Sea Wind has capacity for up to 1,000 lane metres and can take 119 drivers, with accommodation for 98 in cabins. Her four MaK 8M453AK diesel engines produce up to 7.36Mw. JP

 

 
Wellington tugs depart
Tuesday, 27 January 2015 00:00

After a joint service of 80 years, the former Wellington tugs Ngahue (Delta 300) and Toia (Delta 200) depart Wellington on 14 November 2014. V. H. YoungAfter a joint service of 80 years, the former Wellington tugs Ngahue (Delta 300) and Toia (Delta 200) depart Wellington on 14 November 2014. V. H. Young

The end of New Zealand service has come for Wellington’s two long-serving tugs Toia and Ngahue. Renamed Delta 200 and Delta 300 respectively, the two veterans departed their former home on 14 November 2014, bound for a new life in Dubai.  

New Zealand-built, by Whangarei Engineering & Construction Co Ltd, Kupe was delivered in 1971, followed by Toia the following year and Ngahue in 1977. All three were propelled by Voith-Schneider multi-directional units which, in service, have provided superb reliability.  

Ship handling work at the Port of Wellington has now been passed to the recently-acquired harbour tugs Tiaki and Tapuhi, making the older tugs surplus. Kupe remains in New Zealand and is presently operating at New Plymouth. VHY

 

 
Salvage of bulker starts

Houston-based TITAN salvage expects to have the mid-section of the 151,279dwt bulk carrier Smart removed from Richards Bay, South Africa this month after successfully salvaging and scuttling the ship’s bow section in December 2014.

The Panamanian-flagged vessel was carrying a load of 147,650 tonnes of coal from South Africa to China when she went aground in August 2013 after encountering heavy seas. Complications ensued when the carrier broke apart after only two days and the bow section became partially buried in mud. TITAN deployed its proprietary jack-up barges Karlissa A and Karlissa B to lift the bow after all cargo had been taken off and the mud removed using air-lift techniques. The bow was then towed out and scuttled in designated waters approved by the South African Maritime Safety Authority. JS

 

 
Tragic start to the new year
Wednesday, 14 January 2015 13:53

At the time of writing, salvors from Svitzer were examining ways to recover the car carrier Hoegh Osaka, which was resting on a sandbank close to the main shipping channel with a 52-degree list. With winter gales and bad weather likely, the salvage process will be a long and complex one. Maritime PhotographicAt the time of writing, salvors from Svitzer were examining ways to recover the car carrier Hoegh Osaka, which was resting on a sandbank close to the main shipping channel with a 52-degree list. With winter gales and bad weather likely, the salvage process will be a long and complex one. Maritime Photographic

The turn of the year proved to be tragic period for the shipping industry with three serious incidents within a week causing at least 19 fatalities. The major fire on board Norman Atlantic (see page 7) was followed by the sudden capsize and sinking with all eight crew – seven Polish nationals and one Filipino – of the 1984-built cement carrier Cemfjord (1,850gt) in the Pentland Firth on 3 January.

The same day, the grounding of the car carrier Hoegh Osaka (2000/51,770gt) in the Solent made the news headlines across the country. The Hoegh Autoliners car carrier was deliberately beached to prevent the ship from capsizing and blocking the channel in and out of one the UK’s busiest ports. The Singapore-flagged vessel was an hour out of port, en route to Germany with around 1,400 cars and 80 pieces of construction equipment, when the drama unfolded.

Although an official MAIB investigation is ongoing, it is thought that a shift in ballast during the sharp turn out of Southampton Water destabilised the vessel so much that there was a danger of her overturning. The Master and Pilot were lauded for their quick actions, which resulted in no serious casualties and no leaks, with the crew of 24 and the pilot safely airlifted off the stricken ship by the Lee-on-Solent-based Coastguard SAR helicopter and RNLI lifeboats.
