"Spirit of Endurance has started to be renamed to CFS Panjang at Auckland."

Are they replacing her with another vessel or just going down to having the one vessel on the coast?

China Nav are canning the Spirit of Endurance as they think 1 boat can service the coast.

With the Rangatira up for sale, does this mean South Pacific Shipping are no longer involved with shipping to the Chatham Islands? Have they bowed to pressure from Chatham Islands Shipping Ltd?

I see Chatham Islands Shippings' Southern Tiare is under repair at Lyttelton for a month, and they are using both the Anatoki and Norfolk Guardian for the service.

MSC are to replace the Calicanto Bridge with the Arosia (IMO 9327669) in June.
Also due for replacement is the MSC Vienna with an unnamed vessel, also in June.

It appears that the Frisia Amsterdam which has just completed her first voyage to New Zealand on the Northern Star Service, is to be renamed Maersk Jabal when she reaches Singapore. That is only an assumption at the moment, but Maersk Jabal is appearing on the Maersk schedule with the same dates and voyage numbers as the Frisia Amsterdam which is still listed.

The Maersk Jabal is ex "Bright Future", ex "Kota Permasen" IMO 9343077. She visited here for one voyage to cover for Jens Maersk's drydocking. I think she may be replacing Frisia Amsterdam.

re: Marinetraffic - looks like crap data.  MMSI 512000390 shown with that data is a NZ allocation (Indonesian MMSIs begin 525------), and no evidence of change of call-sign.

Look at Maritime-Connector: http://maritime-connector.com/ship/anatoki-8864153/print/
Like the grosstonnage.com data on here, it has 375gt which belongs with the previous name BAHANA NUSANTARA, but that was a total loss in 1998.  M-C also give owner as "Jembatan Madura PT, Surabaya"  That company hasn't been in business since 1975, when it became PT Jembatan Nusantara. Goodness known which BLUE MOON they think she also was.

According to the Maersk schedules, Maersk Jaipur will only go as far as Sydney and her place on the OC1 Service will taken over by the Olga Maersk currently on the Northern Star service.

In turn the Maersk Jaipur will take over from the Olga Maersk on the Northern Star Service.

The Dora C IMO 9404613 is due in Tauranga on 27 September from Pusan in South Korea. On arrival she will be renamed "Southern Fleur". She was in NZ in 2014 with this name, she also carried the name Southern Lily in 2015. I presume this will be another charter to Pacific Direct Line.

"Westport", LR 7423249, changed hands on 7 September, and when she sails from Onehunga mid-next week, she'll be flying the Bahamas flag, and sporting the name "Fjordvik".

Title: Re: Updates on vessel changes and services to New Zealand in 2016
Post by: Brent on October 05, 2016, 08:25:37 am
Hi Stephen

Claymore II normally dwells in Tauranga between bi-monthly approx. sailings to Pitcairn Island for Stoneycreek Shipping. She was reactivated about a week ago that I thought was for another Pitcairn run which per your report not correct.

Chenan - another of Swire's "C" class will be handed over to breakers in January.

Hohebank -due to be replaced in next few weeks by CV1100 class MSC Kia Ora IMO9364344 ex Tampa Bay.

The bulker Crystal Palace currently on the coast is carrying a "Ravensdown" funnel indicating the fertiliser manufacturer has her under charter.

The final sailing of "Milburn Carrier II" from Onehunga took place last Tuesday, 15 November, ending roughly 180 years of shipping at the Port of Onehunga.

The port officially closes to shipping on 30 November, but no other shipping movements are scheduled. The port's tug, "Tika", is currently for sale, and is available for delivery from 1 December.

Holcim's new (to NZ) ship "Buffalo" is due to arrive in Nelson circa 9 December from Singapore, where she is currently completing modification work. She will remain in Nelson until the end of January 2017, by which time she will be commissioned and made operational.

"Milburn Carrier II" will remain in service through to Feb/March 2017, at which point she'll be put up for sale.

And "Fjordvik", formerly "Westport", arrived in Gdynia, Poland on 14 November, after setting out on her long journey north from Onehunga on 21 September. She moved into the Nauta drydock on Sunday.

It was reported in October that the Chenan would be going for scrap in January, following her sister Chengtu. However she is due in Auckland and spending a day at the container terminal for "Provisional move for Fergusson Wharf planning". I am wondering if Swire are going to add her to the coastal container trade due to the earthquakes and the shutting down of the rail and road infrastructure in the South Island. Anyone have an insight on this?

Swire Shipping are not replacing the Chenan on the TransTasman schedule, but are going down to a one vessel opereation with the Island Chief.
They are also dropping calls at Lyttelton and Nelson.

Chenan sailed from Newcastle direct to Lyttelton arriving 26 November berthing at Cashin Quay. She loaded a deck cargo of containers helping out the SOC and sailed 27 November for Auckland. Arriving in the early hours of 30 November, she berthed at Fergusson and discharged, before moving to Bledisloe at 0730 to take up her normal schedule. (For last time as it turns out).

Regards,
David

The northbound sailing will be taken by a 2016 new build named "Seatrade Blue". The next vessels are Catharina Schulte (IMO 9302956) and Melchior Schulte (IMO 9676723). The last vessel is another newbuild named "Seatrade Red".

Regular calling Maersk Brani has suffered damage in a collision in the Panama area while on the southbound leg of her Maersk OC1 service between east coast North America and New Zealand / Australia. She has been diverted to Manzanillo Panama where her container cargo was discharged and is now awaiting a survey of her condition. Maersk then re-scheduled Olga Maersk that was on a northbound leg of the same service to terminate at Manzanillo, discharge her onboard cargo for transshipment to their final destinations, and then backload Maersk Brani's cargo for New Zealand and Australia and resume that voyage. There was no information regarding the other party involved in the incident.  The Maersk Brani is a veteran of 35 voyages to New Zealand since 2010, 31 on the OC1 service to the USA, with the remainder to Asia early in her career.
