316  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / MOOR (stuck in ice and engine problems) on: February 06, 2011, 12:15:14 am
Quebec City : 2011-02-05 (19h00)

Listening on the radio and the MOOR just called the Coast Guard saying that they were stuck in the ice and lost power. The CCGS Amundsen is on its way.

Quebec City : January 29, 2011

Pilot on-bord the ONEGO MONSOON called Maritime Traffic saying that the ship had engine problems at about 14H50. At the time of that call it was behind the icebreaker CCGS AMUNDSEN on its way to Montreal.

In the attached picture, we can see smoke coming up from the back of the ship near the waterline. Coincidence or proof of engine problems?

Hi Ted,

It's what I heard on the marine frequencies. I had been listening for a couple of hours and it seems that things were a bit strange. When they called to ask for a new pilot to get on board the pilot station or coast guard said that they would have to wait for the next available tug. An hour later the tug called wondering what was taking so long. There seems to have been mis-communication. At some point the pilot on board the ship said that there were heated arguments between the captan and the crew. When it was time to go through with the pilot change the engine stopped. They mentioned 'water intake' and ice to explain the possible problem. After 15 minutes, the problem was solved and the ship was able to continue its trip to Montreal.

The coast guard asked the pilot to call the inspector to explain what was happening but I wasn't able to hear what was said.

At 19h00, the ship seems to be ok since it is near Donnacona and going at about 13 knots.

Quebec City, January 8th, 2011 (16h00): The MSC TUSCANY was about to go through with a pilot change and notified the Coast Guard that their enigines went dead. Three tugs are assisting it and they are saying that it will have to come to port.

Update 17h00 : Problem apparently fixed. The water intake was blocked with ice and they had to shut down the engine so as to not overheat the engine. Ship on it's way without assistance towards Montreal.

Algonova has trouble with its rudder pumps. On December 30th, it had left Quebec City on its way to Matane. It stopped near l'Île-d'Orléans and headed back to Quebec City. I heard on the radio that it had rudder problems. Today (Saturday), it left at about 16h00 and at about 16h10 a call on the radio stated that they had a problem with the rudder again. It is now moored near l'Île-d'Orléans.

Update : Sunday January 2nd... returned to port to try to fix the problem.
Update : Friday January 7th... left Quebec City for Matane.
Update : Saturday January 8th... arrived in Matane.

I agree with Ken...

No matter what our views are on fishing/overfishing/seal hunt/furs/seal population control/economic reasons for seal hunts to support 'poorer' regions of Canada...  we should not debate here if is good or bad... instead we should pay respect to the lost lives. No matter the reason why they were there... they died in an unfortunate accident.

I won't say to much about the towing operation since I wasn't there and an inquiry will let us know what exactly happened.

To the 4 men who lost their lives... RIP

Does anybody know what the problem is with TRIUMPH? It is on its way upbound to Montreal and the tug OCEAN K. RUSBY is assisting it all the way there...

Hello all,

The FLOTTBEK will be leaving Montréal today (September 5th at about 10h00) and crossing the Atlantic. I would appreciate it if someone could take pictures of this ship and let me know. There is a visitor onboard and she would love to have pictures as a momento of her voyage.

The ship should be in Trois-Rivières at about 15h00 and Quebec City at about 19h30.

Thanks,

Steve Geronazzo
