UK ship detentions June 2006

From the MCA website -

TEN FOREIGN SHIPS UNDER DETENTION IN THE UK DURING JUNE 2006

The Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) announced today that ten foreign ships were under detention in UK ports during June 2006 after failing Port State Control safety inspection.

Latest monthly figures show that there were six new detentions of foreign flagged ships in UK ports during June 2006, along with four other ships still under detention from previous months. The number of new detentions compared to last month has decreased by 45% (there were eleven new detentions in May), but the overall rate of detentions compared with inspections carried out over the last twelve months as a whole remains just over 5%, unchanged from Mays twelve month rate.

During the month of June 174 Port State Control Inspections were carried out in the UK, which brings the recorded total from January to June this year to 811 inspections. For those ships inspected during June a total of forty-five vessels had no deficiencies raised against them, eighty-two had between one and five deficiencies, twenty-eight had between six and ten deficiencies, seventeen had between eleven and twenty deficiencies, and two vessels had more than twenty deficiencies.

Of the six vessels detained in June, one was registered with a flag state listed on the Paris MOU black list, three were registered with states on the grey list and two were registered with states on the white list as published up until the end of June. The black, grey and white lists have been updated by the Paris MOU, and the new lists came into effect from 1st July 2006.

Three bulk carriers, one refrigerated cargo vessel, one general cargo vessel and one container vessel were detained in the UK during June.

Among the vessels detained in the UK in June were:

A 3,958 GT container vessel detained at Belfast with an inoperative emergency generator and oily water separator, leaking fuel oil transfer pumps, oil on main engine and fuel oil in the bilges and purifier flat.
Two bulk carriers, both detained at Hull with failure of the Safety Management System, an ISM major non-conformity.

The MCA would also like to draw attention to an error in Press Notice 045/06 and Press Release 046/06 published on 24th February 2006 concerning the Greek flagged bulk carrier AYIA MARINA. This vessel was detained at Tyne Dock on on 9th January but was released after four days, and was not under detention for the remainder of the month as stated. The MCA apologises to the owners and operator of the AYIA MARINA for the incorrect information published.

Note to Editors

1. In response to one of the recommendations of Lord Donaldsons Inquiry into the prevention of pollution from merchant shipping and in compliance with the EU Directive on Port State Control (95/21/EC as amended), the Maritime and Coastguard agency (MCA) publishes full details of the foreign flagged vessels detained in UK ports each month.

2. Inspections of foreign flagged ships in UK ports are undertaken by surveyors from the MCA. Where a ship is found to be deficient or lacks the required documentation, MCA surveyors can take a range of actions leading to detention in serious cases. The UK is part of a regional agreement on port state control known as the Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control (Paris MOU) and information on all ships that are inspected is held centrally in an electronic database known as SIReNaC. This allows the ships of flags with poor detention records to be targeted for future inspection.

3. Detained ships have to satisfy surveyors that remedial work has been carried out before they are allowed to leave port.

4. When applicable the list includes those passenger craft prevented form operating under the provisions of the EU Directive on Mandatory Surveys for the safe operation of regular Ro-Ro ferry and high speed passenger craft services (1999/35/EU).

Lets just spare a thought for the poor devils that have to sail on these things.
They have little choice and are poorly trained, its not there fault that they have to work for these disreputable operators of which there are many. Some
of the deficiencies are obviously very serious but some are fairly trivial. I noticed one recent reported deficiency where the gyro stabilisation of the radar was inoperative, many of us I'm sure have sailed on British ships not that long ago where you were lucky if the radar worked at all, let alone having gyro stabilisation!

regards
Dave.

Fowey..?

Hi Pilot Mac,

I believe that when the vessel I mentioned - "Piligrim 3" left Teignmouth for Fowey the pilots saved her twice from the rocks.? She careed into yachts in Teignmouth whilst turning...she has no thrusters...she was built for rivers...and not those 3000 miles from home>!

Although I have utmost sympathy with the crew and the conditions they have to live and work in...if they can't navigate (vessel not seaworthy), then what the hell are they doing on a floating vessel in the first place.?

Not being harsh....but chroist...I wonder ...!!

IMO numbers mean b*ggerall...
