Due to the high level of demand for cargo into Fiji, especially timber, Matsons are adding an extra sailing with MV Islander IMO 9085596. She will load Auckland 20 October for Suva and Lautoka before resuming her usual sailings between the Pacific Islands and Honolulu. She was last in NZ waters as Maersk Asia Decimo.

Hi Stephen,

It's the first of two visits MC2 will make to top up the silos before time is called on my home port. There's also a possibility of Anatoki making a final call before Ports of Auckland hand ownership of Onehunga over to the NZ Transport Agency - see the link below.

Cheers,

Matson have decided to add Islander IMO 9085596 to their permanent Pacific Island schedule out of Auckland. The rotation will be Honolulu-Apia-Pago Pago- Nukualofa- Auckland - Suva- Lautoka- Honolulu. This brings to three, the number of vessels they have sailing out of Auckland, with the others being Imua II and Liloa II.

Neptune Shipping are replacing Capitaine Wallis with the larger Capitaine Dampier, ex Gloria IMO 9230787. This will allow them to introduce a call into Nukualofa on their NZ to Fiji service.

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.

The Bernhard-S is the "Sri Lanka", which is being replaced on the (NZS) service. She will be renamed when she is returned to her owners.

The new cement carrier "Aotearoa Chief" has arrived in NZ. She had her naming ceremony in Auckland and then headed to Whangarei, where she is undergoing "repairs".
With her arrival, does anyone know what the future is for the vessels Golden Bay and Marsden Bay?

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.

Due to high cargo volumes, the Southern Trader will be doing a voyage to Nuku'alofa and Suva. Her scheduled voyage to Papeete will be taken by the chartered in Messina Strait, which will stop off in Tahiti on her way to Zeebrugge with kiwifruit.
