Hijacking Charges Dropped for Stowaways SBS Forces Captured on Tanker Nave Andromeda in October 2018 (file image courtesy Bristol Port Company) British authorities have dropped the charges against seven Nigerian stowaways that were accused of endangering a product tanker after a confrontation with the crew. The vessel was later boarded by British special forces in response to the crew’s calls for help. Announcing the decision to drop the case, the prosecutors said, “Our case was that the actions of the men were responsible for the endangerment of the vessel, but further material was then supplied by a maritime expert which significantly undermined whether there was a threat of danger.” The 75,000 dwt Liberian flagged Nave Andromeda was underway from Lagos to Southampton with a cargo of crude oil and as it neared the Isle of Wight, the crew reported that the seven stowaways, which they knew were aboard, suddenly became hostile. ...

Ship Repairs Focused on Drydock Postponements and Remote Attendances in Hellenic Shipping News 07/01/2021 The ship repair hasn’t remained in a “business as usual” mode during 2020. In a recent weekly report, shipbroker Intermodal said that “by the end of 2020, the ship repair sector ends up in a completely different form than expected a year ago. From the Era of scrubber retrofits and packed shipyards we have moved into the Era of massive requests for drydock postponements, remote attendances, and Owners struggling to undergo only the very minimum repairs. The reason, of course, is the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It is very challenging to try to evaluate market trends by isolating the colossal impact of COVID-19. What would the ship repair market be like in 2020 if there was not the COVID-19 epidemic? According to Intermodal’s ship-repair broker, Mr. Vassilis Vassiliou, “we would expect to see more scrubber retrofits, which of...
