Repeat Offender Banned For a Year From Entering Australian Ports

https://www.amsa.gov.au/media/docume...nderbanned.pdf


AMSA prohibits vessel from using Australian ports for second time
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has directed that the 86 metre general cargo ship Noah Satu (IMO9313620) not enter or use any Australian port for the second time in less than twelve months. The direction was issued on 4 February and will remain in effect for twelve months.
Noah Satu is owned by PT Anugerah Samudra Indomakur and was on charter to Orica Singapore.
The Noah Satu has been detained by AMSA five times since August 2013 for deficiencies related to its equipment, its operations, its safety management system and non-compliance with the Maritime Labour Convention. The safety management system detentions resulted from repeated failings related to navigation safety, compliance with pollution prevention requirements and fire safety.
The Noah Satu was previously banned from Australian ports for three months in September 2015 for repeated non-compliance with Australian maritime regulations.
The vessel returned to Australian waters on 26 January 2016 and was subject to a port State control inspection in Port Alma, Queensland.
The vessel was again detained, due to failings in the vessel’s safety management system related to safe navigational practice, communications, pollution prevention arrangements, firefighting systems and hours of work and rest for the seafarers.
In visits to Australian ports over the past year, the vessel has also failed to comply with all the mandatory reporting requirements for vessels transiting the Great Barrier Reef area.
AMSA identified serious and repeated failings in the vessel’s operations and maintenance, indicating the vessel is unable to ensure compliance with the Safety of Life at Sea Convention, the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships and the Maritime Labour Convention.
As the Noah Satu was previously banned for three months, the current direction will remain in place for twelve months, until 2 February 2017. The purpose of the escalated action is to encourage operators of poorly performing ships to improve the performance of their vessels, noting that other intervention activities are not achieving the required safety culture change.
AMSA Chief Executive Officer, Mick Kinley, said AMSA has a responsibility to ensure ships visiting Australian ports comply with the standards established by the International Maritime Organization and the International Labour Organization.
“The performance of this vessel is completely unacceptable. Unsafe vessels put the lives of seafarers at risk and pose a threat to Australia’s marine environment,” Mr Kinley said.
“Operators and charterers of ships that repeatedly fail to meet Australian standards need to accept that these ships are not welcome in Australian waters

Perhaps they failed to give 96 hours notice of arrival...

RC, it was a joke, mate!

They sound like a pretty rough mob of sailors/officers/ and particularly owners.

No joke mate, our skipper on second trip failed to put our names on the entry docket even though notifying 4 on board.. Gun toting customs were very upset.

Re: Repeat Offender Banned For a Year From Entering Australian Ports

I flew into Sydney once as a last minute crew replacement. The original captain had booked off sick, so I was called. The company failed to update the general declaration. So I was detained at customs.

While I was there, a British Airways Captain was being questioned and he was visibly put off. When the Australian Customs Officer ask him if he had ever been convicted of a crime for which he had not received a pardon, he quickly responded with " no I have not, is that still a requirement for entry into Australia?" I just about fell off my chair. He was still there when I left.

Re: Repeat Offender Banned For a Year From Entering Australian Ports

Not unusual for Australian Marine Authorities to make a well publicized example of a type of vessel / owner whose repeated ignorance of the procedures and standards.... just pi$$es them off.

They have also done it with certain yachts and Super yachts, which I commend them for maintaining intelligent enforcement.

I thought it was very unusual so did the media looking at the media reports at the time. And this was the third time.

Good on them though it's about time I think.
