An Irish Trawler Collided With an Atlantic Sea Vessel
An Irish trawler has reported that an ‘Atlantic Sea’ cargo ship collided with it around 40 miles north of the Malin Head, County Clare coast. The Irish vessel ‘Sean Og 2’ had suffered damages to its wheelhouse and railings, and was en route to the town of Killybegs to undergo repairs. Despite the collision, the crew on board the Atlantic Sea were unaware of it and continued on their voyage to Hamburg.
trawler collided with atlantic sea vessel
The U.S. Coast Guard is investigating a collision that occurred between a bulk carrier and a fishing vessel in the Atlantic Ocean. The collision occurred on July 30, 2010, in clear weather and visibility of approximately two to three miles. The wind was blowing at nine knots and the waves were approximately two feet high. The crew of the trawler said they did not know what caused the collision.
Worldwide, the number of collisions between marine animals and vessels is on the rise. Most scientific publications have concentrated on collisions between large ships and large whales. These collisions affect at least 75 species, although reports of incidents involving smaller vessels are scarce. However, reporting biases could explain the lack of information. It is unclear how many sea turtles were injured or killed in this collision.
The collision resulted in 51 deaths. The collision resulted in 51 deaths. The incident sparked a diplomatic dispute between the two countries. Japan accused the US and their actions of showing no remorse. The US responded by apologising on national television and other politicians offered condolences to the crew. While the captain of the Doria was praised for his quick response, his crew’s rushed procedures were criticized. It turned out that no criminal proceedings or court martial proceedings were necessary.
In addition to the collision, the crew of the Atlantic Queen escaped with minor injuries. The tanker had suffered extensive damage to its bow section, causing the ship to be unable to take on its normal course of operation. The crew of the Atlantic Queen was rescued by Coast Guard vessel Station Jones Beach. The 48,000-ton self-unloader Atlantic Queen is owned by Klaveness Maritime Logistics AS of Norway, and registered in Marshall Islands.
Investigators are investigating whether the crew of the Karin Hoj was drunk at the time of the collision. The crew of the Swedish vessel were unaware that the collision could have caused their deaths. The investigation into the incident is still ongoing, and the two men arrested so far have not been identified. A preliminary investigation indicates that gross marine intoxication was a factor. Although the accident is still under investigation it is considered a tragic accident.
The Atlantic Ocean sank the El Faro cargo ship.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), held an all-day meeting in Washington, Dec. 12, to review the circumstances surrounding El Faro’s October sinking. It was a cargo ship carrying 33 people who died and 17 others were left missing. Investigators cited a number of factors, including the vessel master’s failure to properly avoid a hurricane and numerous opportunities to evade hazardous weather.
At the time of the disaster, the El Faro was in a port-side list, where the storm was coming from the northeast. The water was pouring out of the open scuttle, and the crew was preparing to close it once the hurricane passed. However, as the storm approached, Captain Michael Davidson, who had received the highest possible score on his most recent performance review, suddenly appeared on the bridge. Captain Michael Davidson and his crew welcomed him with a cheery “hi”
As a result of the squall, the ship’s crew tried to maintain propulsion but had difficulty adjusting to the strong winds. They tried to shift the ship’s list to the port side, but were unsuccessful. The El Faro lost its propulsion as it was turned around and drifted aimlessly through the Atlantic Ocean. Fortunately, all of its crew managed to escape death.
The Coast Guard is still searching for survivors. A lifeboat severely damaged was found near Crooked island, Bahamas. There were 33 crew members aboard the El Faro, including 28 Americans and five Polish nationals. Despite the storm, the crew had the proper equipment to manage the changing weather conditions. Despite the fact that they had limited resources, the crew was well-trained to deal with any hazards along the route. It’s not clear if the ship actually sank, but it is important to remember that recovery is not guaranteed.
The 500-page transcript of conversations that took place on the ship’s bridge in the last hours of its operation has been released by the US National Transportation Safety Board. The transcript shows that the captain’s decision not to move into the hurricane was based upon outdated weather data. The transcript is an important part the investigation. Numerous crew members have given interviews for NTSB investigators. The transcript is now available in the docket.
Wartsila shaft generators reduce fuel consumption and maintenance costs
In 2015, Wartsila won a contract to supply 32 engine sets for eight new container ships, built by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Co Ltd (CSSC). The engines were ordered through Wartsila’s joint venture in Shanghai and were delivered to the shipyard in early 2017. Auxpac Gensets were specifically designed for large boxships. Their compact design, high output, and excellent performance make them an excellent choice for large boxships.
Shaft generator motors are extremely efficient and can double as an electric power generator. GE Marine contributed its patented technology, PTO/PTI, to the shaft generator motor. The Wartsila Nacos Platinum system features navigation, automation, powerplant, propulsion systems, and more. It also features a waste heat recovery system, and an improved architecture. The new design of the main engine and the other components of the system have all been designed to improve vessel performance and fuel consumption.
Shaft generator systems with frequency converters supply three-phase current to mains at variable main engine speeds. They can be set at 60-60% of the main engine speed depending on the vessel’s operational requirements. Shaft generator systems can be driven in many configurations. The main engine also generates the required active power for the mains. These systems have a wide speed range, making them a valuable technical solution for ship owners.
The shaft generator system is a piggyback on the rotation of both the main engine, and propeller. Its installation between the main diesel engine and the propeller ensures a constant supply of three-phase current. This power can be used to operate electric machinery on board. The shaft generator system is safer than traditional methods and reduces fuel consumption. It reduces the chance of a fire and provides high reliability.
Passengers aboard an atlantic sea vessel
A freighter cruise offers many benefits. The cost of the trip can vary depending on where you are going, but an average day on a freighter costs between $100 and $150 per person. Although there are restrictions on how much you can bring, casual clothing should be sufficient. Avoid fancy dresses and coats. Make sure you wear comfortable, rubber-soled shoes for the trip. You will need to be able to easily slip your shoes on and off, as decks are usually wet and the exhaust can make the floors slick.
If you prefer a more relaxed cruise experience, you should spend the evenings on board a sea vessel. The views are breathtaking and the early morning stars are sure to give you a glimpse of the night sky. Evenings aboard a sea vessel can be filled of camaraderie, fun, and relaxation. Get to know the crew of the ship so you are aware of what to expect. You will also want to meet the crew members to get to know them.
All passengers should also practice a lifeboat drill. The ship conducts a lifeboat drill on board every night before leaving port. It is recommended that guests bring their lifejackets to a muster station at least twenty minutes before the scheduled time. During the drill, staff members will brief passengers about safety procedures, and the captain will make a brief announcement. Once you are ready, you can climb up to the deck to admire the skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
For long-haul Atlantic voyages, passengers should get vaccinations. For good health, some ships require medical certificates. Cargo ships, for example, can reach Cape Horn, South America and New Zealand. During the last crossing, you might see the Isles of Scilly, 35 miles west of Land’s End. You might even see Bishop Rock, an island in the English Channel.
