20  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / SVITZER SECURES 10-YEAR AGREEMENT on: December 20, 2015, 04:02:00 am
Svitzer Australia has won a 10-year contract to provide towage and other marine services to the multi-billion dollar INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project in the Port of Darwin in Australia.

The contract comes with the option to extend it up to a maximum of 19 years. Under the contract, Svitzer will supply four high-power Azimuth Stern Drive (ASD) escort tugs to assist LNG, LPG and condensate carriers into and out of the Port of Darwin once the Project’s onshore processing facility is up and running in late 2017. The fleet will consist of two existing vessels plus two new-builds.

As well as towage, the other services Svitzer will be required to provide are: Safety standby i.e. a tug that can be deployed quickly, irrespective of time or day; Emergency and environment incident response; Fire-fighting; Support for maintenance work on INPEX’s marine infrastructure; and Salvage operations within the Port.

Lastly, to support the expected increase in operational activity within the Port of Darwin, Svitzer will build a new tug base at the East Arm Wharf and expand its local Darwin workforce.

According to Svitzer Australia Managing Director Mark Malone:

“Having already secured contracts with Chevron and PNG-based Oil Search, we are very pleased to add INPEX to the list of global energy suppliers that rely on us to keep their vessels moving. Indeed, our concerted efforts over recent years to take advantage of new opportunities in the off-shore oil and gas industry are paying dividends.

“Securing this major contract not only cements Svitzer’s position as Australia’s leading provider of safe, reliable towage services, it’s also a vote of confidence in the expertise and professionalism of our local Darwin crews, which was integral to the success of our tender.”

Chief Commercial Officer, Kasper Friis Nilaus adds: “This contract supports our global growth strategy of securing long term agreements for provision of advanced towage and other marine services to the oil and gas segment, and is proof of our status as preferred towage supplier to LNG terminals.”

The last pilot boat down the bottom looks like it is from Port Jackson or Port Botany.
22  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Do you know what became of the SS Louisa? on: March 19, 2015, 03:54:16 am
MARITIME historian Ken Goodman is looking for information on the steamboat SS Louisa.

The 87-foot steamship was built in 1872 by Brisbane firm R. R. Smellie & Co and was one of the first iron ships built in Australia.

"Built for a bloke called Mellor, before the railway was built, she worked the Bremer River to Ipswich - including a sinking on the Bremer in 1872," Mr Goodman said.

"Luckily there was bugger-all damage to the cargo of beer and wine, nor to the steamer."
The Louisa was then purchased in 1884 by Orr and Honeyman and started trading on the Albert and Logan rivers.

"She used to drop into Jacksons Wharf on Russell Island in her travels to Logan Rivers," Mr Goodman said.

"Luckily, in memory of the old steamer, I did manage to tie up my little Louisa, my 24-foot long steamboat I named after the original, to Jacksons Wharf not long before the jetty collapsed into the water in the 1980s."

Louisa was sold to captain John Burke in 1884 and was used her to carry timber, maize, settlers' supplies, cotton and sugar along the Brisbane, Albert and Logan rivers.

John Burke established a company which traded up and down the Queensland coast for more than a hundred years.

The steamboat played an important part of the Queensland shipping scene.

John Burke sold her to three men in 1926, who started trading her again on the Logan River but they on-sold her in 1927 to Peters Slip at Kangaroo Point.

"She was used until 1937 as a dumb barge - meaning she had no engine," Mr Goodman said.

"After that she moved to the Mary River where she was used as a lighter.

"I made enquiries with the local historical society but couldn't find the date or location of her demise."

Anyone with information on the SS Louisa can phone Ken Goodman on 0423 216 909 or email steamboatken1@gmail.com.

25  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Svitzer Pulls Asbestos-Contaminated Tugs on: March 09, 2015, 05:38:42 am
 Svitzer has removed two of its nine Newcastle tugs from service after one of the Chinese-built vessels was found to contain asbestos, the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) reports.

The MUA said both vessels were certified as being clear of asbestos before they sailed to Australia.

The union’s assistant national secretary, Ian Bray, said the asbestos was contained in electrical wiring and had led the union to take a ”closer look” at Svitzer vessels in other Australian ports.

Svitzer has confirmed asbestos in one vessel, the Warunda, and inspections are under way in its sister ship, the Warrego.

Bray said concerns were raised after an asbestos-free certificate for one of Svitzer’s tugs said it had been inspected in Brisbane on a day the union knew it was in Bowen, more than 1,000 kilometres north.

Svitzer Australia’s communications manager, Jeff Singleton, said the tugs had been imported, second-hand, from China because there was ”no recognised” Australian tug-building industry.

Singleton released four inspection reports showing more than 1,000 asbestos gaskets and varying amounts of asbestos lagging, or pipe insulation, had been taken from each ship before leaving China.

The certificates show the work was done in stages between July and September last year in a Shanghai shipyard.

Both vessels came back with clear results when tested in China for airborne asbestos in their engine rooms.

Singleton said the company did not know what the union was referring to with the Brisbane test results.

He said an electrician preparing the Warunda for service had suspected asbestos was present in some wiring he cut, and this was confirmed by testing.

According to Singleton all of the Warunda’s wiring was being replaced, and inspections were taking place on the Warrego to see if similar work was needed.

He said Svitzer had kept the relevant authorities and regulators fully informed and would pay for health checks for any employees who worked on either vessel.
