PCG tows ship that ran aground off Coron, crew members safe

The Philippine Coast Guard on Friday towed the landing craft tank that ran aground off Coron Island in Palawan on 14 September afternoon. PCG spokesperson Rear Adm. Armando Balilo said the LCT Lady Alina was maneuvered away from the shallow waters near Cadis Point in Palawan at around 8 a.m. Friday. The landing craft tank remains temporarily anchored in the vicinity waters off Coron Island while the PCG, Department of Environment and Natural Resources and Palawan Council for Sustainable Development conduct an area assessment. Based on the initial investigation of the PCG, the LCT Lady Alina ran aground due to a miscalculation of the duty lookout caused by zero visibility. The crew of the landing craft tank said they did not see the reef that they hit on their global positioning system. The 17 crew members of the vessel were rescued. Balilo said all crew members "were in good physical condition.” The PCG team already inspected the incident area for possible traces of oil spill, which “and yielded a negative result,” said Balilo. The Coron Coast Guard Station and Marine Environmental Protection Unit also reported no oil spill after the incident.

Deadly fire burning on car transport ship off Netherlands

Authorities were battling Wednesday a deadly blaze raging aboard a car carrier ship off the Netherlands, sparking fears of ecological damage to a fragile nearby island chain. The cargo aboard the vessel includes electric vehicles and a coastguard official told Dutch media that authorities were looking into whether the fire had started with one of them. Rescue personnel received a call shortly after midnight (2200 GMT Tuesday) saying a fire had started on the Fremantle Highway, a Panamanian-registered ship with 3,000 vehicles on board, about 14.5 nautical miles off the northern Dutch island of Ameland. "All 23 crew members have... been evacuated off the ship" with the use of helicopters and a boat, the Dutch coastguard said on its website. "The crew tried to put out the fire themselves, but failed. Unfortunately one person died and several others were injured," it added. At least seven crew members jumped overboard and were rescued from the water, while the rest were airlifted by helicopter. The Fremantle Highway is an 18,500-tonne car carrier ship and was sailing between Bremerhaven in Germany and Port Said in Egypt when the blaze broke out, according to the marinetraffic.com website. "The blaze is still raging on board," the coastguard said in a later update, adding that the ship was listing. The Fremantle Highway is currently close to Ameland, one of four ecologically sensitive Frisian islands, situated in the Waddensee area just north of the Dutch mainland. Environmental risk Also called the Frisian Islands, the area has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has a rich diversity of more than 10,000 aquatic and terrestrial species. This included more than 140 species of fish of which some 20 spent their entire life in the tidal areas along the islands' famous mud flats. The area also has a large seal and porpoise population. Should the Fremantle Highway sink, "it would be a disaster of the highest order," the daily tabloid De Telegraaf said. Salvage vessels were on the scene trying to put out the blaze and prevent the ship from sinking, the NOS national broadcaster said. Specialized firefighters were called from Rotterdam, who would be taken to the ship by helicopter. But the fire developed so quickly that it was no longer safe to bring those firefighters on board. A tug vessel has however managed to attach a cable to the stricken ship to prevent it from drifting and blocking an important sailing route into Germany, the NOS said. "We are taking into account all scenarios," a coastguard official told the NOS. The possible cause of the fire was an electric vehicle, one of some 25 on board, the official said. The injured sailors were taken to the northern towns of Lauwersoog and Eelde and left in the care of paramedics there. "They all suffered from breathing problems, but none are in serious danger," a safety official of the Drenthe region told AFP. "Currently several parties including salvagers and the Dutch authorities are looking at minimizing the damage as much as possible," the Coast Guard said. Some 340 containers tumbled off one of the world's largest container ships after a storm in the same area in early 2019, littering kilometers of pristine coastline with plastic and polystyrene. The most serious incident in recent times off the busy Dutch coast happened in December 2012 when the Bahamian-flagged car carrier Baltic Ice collided with a container ship and sank. Eleven sailors were killed in that incident. The post Deadly fire burning on car transport ship off Netherlands appeared first on Daily Tribune......»»

Decommissioned Navy ship runs aground near Bataan shore due to strong waves

The decommissioned Philippine Navy ship, BRP Lake Caliraya (AF-81), has run aground near the shore of Sitio Crossing, Barangay Poblacion, Morong, Bataan around 8 a.m. on Friday, according to the Philippine Coast Guard. The vessel is set to be used as a mock enemy target against a joint team of marines from the Philippines and the United States in a scheduled ship-sinking exercise this week, during the semi-annual Marine Aviation Support Activity 2023. The PCG reported the vessel was under tow en route to Subic, Zambales for the MASA’s maritime strike exercise. The coast guard added that MT Lake Caliraya’s tow lines snapped due to strong waves, brought about by the current weather disturbance, causing the vessel to drift. PCG-Bataan is currently conducting a rescue operation for three crew members aboard the motor tanker—which had no stored fuel onboard. The maritime strike involves the conduct of live fire maneuvers wherein the combined forces will have to sink a decommissioned PN vessel. This was supposed to take place approximately 10 to 12 nautical miles west of the Naval Station Leovigildo Gantioqi Beach on 14 July. Marine Corps Public Affairs Office director, Capt. Jarald Rea, earlier said this year’s MASA is focused on the aligned procedures, tactics, and communications among marines, navy, and air forces. “A semi-annual activity of the Philippine and US military, MASA 2023 hopes to further improve interoperability, allowing both forces to operate seamlessly and effectively in joint operations,” Rea said. Decommissioned in 2020, the BRP Lake Caliraya was the Navy’s first motor tanker acquired from the Philippine National Oil Company. This maritime event is supposed to be the second sinking exercise conducted by the Philippines and the US this year, with the first one was back in April when a PN corvette formerly known as BRP Pangasinan, was sunk off the coast of Zambales after being used as a mocked target by Filipino and American forces during the Balikatan Exercises.

Italy: 19 rescued from capsized boat

ROME (AFP) — Rescue workers searched Sunday for people feared missing after a boat carrying tourists overturned on Lake Maggiore in strong winds, authorities said. Nineteen people were safe after the vessel overturned off Lisanza, right at the southern end of the lake in northern Italy, fire brigade spokesman Luca Cari told AFP. But rescue divers and a helicopter were searching for “some people reported to be missing,” he said. The body of one of the passengers had been recovered, the local Varese News website said. The president of the Lombardy region, Attilio Fontana, said the “very serious incident” had been “caused by a whirlwind”. The vessel was a 16-meter (52-foot) long boat that had been hired by tourists, he said on Facebook. The boat had been carrying 25 people, including 23 tourists and two crew members, Varese News said. A firefighters’ video showed a search and rescue helicopter flying over choppy waters, where chairs and other debris could be seen floating. Lake Maggiore, which lies on the south side of the Alps, is the second largest lake in Italy and a popular tourist destination.
