    The need for an ETV






    P22 towing MV Breaksea, preventing her going aground on Tuskar Rk, March 2006.

    This would make a nice ETV

    The Rolls-Royce UT range of vessels seem to be very popular for this type of role:

    OOPS!

    No pollution from cargo vessel run aground off Galway coast
    Thursday, March 31, 2011 - 09:40 AM



    Coastguard officials say there has been no pollution from a cargo vessel which has run aground off the Co Galway coast.

    The 120 metre vessel went onto rocks in Cashla Bay in the early hours of this morning.

    It had arrived at Rossaveal harbour yesterday evening.

    The crew is still on board, and efforts will be made to refloat the vessel at high tide, which is due at about 5pm this evening.

    The ETV will sort it out in no time I'm sure...
    Oh Wait! We have to wait for one from the UK.
    Cargo Vessel Pantanal I think.

    It seems she was entering the harbour to recover 2 ferries that had been seized by the bank. She is a heavy lift vessel, often used in the offshore wind farm industry to transfer towers.
    Odd that she was unable to collect the ferries....
    Cargo ship runs aground off Connemara
    The owners of a 7,000-ton cargo ship which ran aground at Casla Bay in Connemara, Co Galway, are trying to establish it can be refloated later today.

    The German-owned ship, with 14 crew on board, arrived yesterday and was due to pick up two small passenger ferries at Rossaveal Harbour.

    The two boats had been repossessed by a bank and were sold in Galway last month.

    The 'Pantanal', which is registered in Newfoundland, Canada, ran aground in heavy seas at around 6am this morning.

    Efforts will be made to raise the boat when high tide comes at 5pm.

    There are no reports of any oil spillage at the moment, but the Irish Coast Guard is monitoring the situation

    According to the Irish Times website, she dragged her anchor in heavy seas early this morning. Presumably she was waiting for daylight and/or high tide, before entering the port to pick up the ferries.

    Wow, thats something else.

    Maybe the ship ran aground on a plastic house moulding machine?

    Tug boat refloats ship off Galway coast
    Friday, April 01, 2011 - 08:59 AM



    Efforts to refloat a cargo ship which ran aground off the Galway coast yesterday have been successful.

    The 7,000 tonne vessel got into difficulty near Rossaveal Harbour when strong winds dragged into on to rocks.

    A tug from Shannon helped refloat the ship at about 5.30am this morning.

    The owners of the boat are now examining it for possible damage.
    Anyone know whose tug?

    The owner is Irish Mainport Holdings Ltd.
    Would have thought the OOW would have heard GPS alarm when anchor started to drag.

    Was on one of the ferries concerned,chatting to one of the crew,he was unaware of AIS even though he stated he was able to helm etc.Often noted the vessels do not come up on AIS poss as under 300t.

    Not the same ship, thankfully, but a similar type. Are they the same ferries though?

    I take it the injured were not supposed to be inside the ferry as it was being lifted?

    Nobody should be in anything that is being lifted by crane, unless they are in a basket designed for carrying people.

    The latest ship to attempt to take these ships away has been arrested in Galway.....

    Cargo ship detained in Galway docks

    The cargo ship that was due to transport two passenger ferries from Galway to the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius has been placed under arrest in Galway docks this afternoon.

    The order detaining the 7,000-tonne Danish-registered Thor Gitta was made by the Admiralty Court.

    Harbour Master Brian Sheridan said he had not been informed why the ship was being detained, but it would mean the immediate suspension of any plans to transport the two ferries from Galway.
    Last week, three men were injured when one of the ferries fell 12 metres from a sling as it was being loaded onto the Thor Gitta in Galway Harbour.

    A fresh bid to move the ferries was to have been made early today but it was cancelled because of what were described as 'legal and insurance' issues.

    Capt Sheridan said the issues had arisen between the French company which bought the passenger ferries and the Danish cargo ship's agents.

    The two passenger ferries had been owned by a well-known Galway businessman but were repossessed by a bank and were sold to the French company following a public auction last month.

    A first attempt to transport them to Mauritius had to be abandoned when another freighter, the Pantanal, ran aground and was holed during a storm at Rossaveal.

    Its a division of the High Court and has full jurisdiction on matters arising under the Merchant Shiping Acts.Had a look at todays list and nothing is listed re Thor Gitta,order must have been made ex parte and come back before the Court early naxt week.
