    [QUOTE=DeV;332901]Do we know why it has been detained?

    Nothing def on news reports.Must be a local angle to it as the main parties would be bound on a common contract which provides for dispute resolution either by arbitration or by agreed courts and laws of a certain country.

    Thanks Danno.
    Strange the term "admiralty" still being used in the highcourt, surprised it hasnt been changed to "maritime" or "oceanic" or something.

    The owners of the cargo are not satisfied that (a) it can safely carry their property and (b) they will be refunded for any damage caused during the last attempt to load them.
    The ship has also been detained for inspection by Port State control, and deficiencies have been found relating to her cargo handling operations including equipment.

    It is very interesting though, Pantanal has also been detained by Port State control. During an earlier inspection, her nautical publications were found to be out of date.

    New attempt to load Galway ferries
    Updated: 10:25, Wednesday, 20 April 2011

    A fresh attempt is being made this morning to move two Aran Island ferries that have been at the centre of a series of incidents in Galway Harbour.


    A fresh attempt is being made this morning to move two Aran Island ferries that have been at the centre of a series of incidents in Galway Harbour.

    The boats are to be transported to Mauritius on board the 7,000-tonne Danish registered cargo ship, the Thor Gitta.

    Two attempts to load them onto the deck of the ship have been unsuccessful.

    On the first attempt three men were injured when a sling broke as one of the ferries was being hoisted. It fell 12m back into the sea.

    The second attempt to lift the ferries was abandoned when an alarm on the Thor Gitta's lifting crane went off.

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

    This morning, the two ferries were brought alongside the Thor Gitta.

    Galway Harbour Master Brian Sheridan said the latest attempt to load them will get under way about 11am.

    Sounds like those ferries are heavier than expected?

    When the crane screams and beeps at you that it can't lift the weight, that usually a sign to cancel the lift, and not just silence the alarm....

    Those are links to photos and info from Icelandic coast guard homepage about the various stages of Iceland’s new OPV “Thor” building process, delivery is estimated late August this year. Iceland has one of its OPV patrolling the Mediterranean and will send another vessel when Thor is delivered

    Great clip Latus, thank you for sharing.
    Has the delivery been delayed much by the Chilean Earthquake?

    First delivery was estimated in beginning of 2010 now they set the date to 31 August this year, so the delays could be close to 2 years, electrical motors wirings and even pumps had to be replaced,probably it took the Norwegians time to manufacture new equipment, the hull itself suffered no damage...
    a tow ship is much needed in Icelandic waters, oil tanker traffic from Murmansk to America has increased enormously and they seam to be in a lot of hurry...they often take the route close to Iceland’s North-West corner.. theistic forecast there is notorious unreliable.. fresh visual inspection from a flyover is the only info to be really trusted.

    This newsclip is since Thor’s sister ship Harstad came for celebration and tow practice instead of tow training they where involved in real strand,,...must click “Horfa į myndskeyš meš frétt” to watch

    It may have been canceled, but then it must have been a last minute cancellation..they painted the EU flag on Tżr about 10 days ago...They will patrol the area on behalf of Frontex a European border institute

    Varšskipiš Aegir, who now attends the European border security, delivered today by about 100 people vélarvana sail boat near the island of Crete in the Mediterranean. People wanted to fly from Egypt to Italy, according to Greek strandgęslunnar.

    AFP news agency the spokesman for the Greek strandgęslunnar ķtölskum authorities in Rome had received a distress. "Originally, the search near Malta until the Icelandic cost guard ship from Frontex (European Border creation), they found near Crete," said the spokeswoman.

    According to sources mbl.is was varšskipiš Ęgir people who found and took it on board. Aegir is a service Frontex but varšskipiš Tyr performs monitoring of tuna fisheries in the Mediterranean for the EU Fisheries Surveillance. This is the biggest rescue of the Icelandic cost guard ship to date, which was rescued nearly 100 people.

    Seglskipiš stand was about 85 nautical miles (160 km) from the town on the southern tip of Paleohora Crete varšskipiš already found it. It was said that 95 people were aboard the boat, but in an emergency the call was not the exact number. Nationality of the people was not known.

    A spokesman said the Greek strandgęslunnar though unknown to most bįtsverjar were men, but also that women and children on board. "Now they are being transferred to a vessel Frontex and the authorities have not decided where people will be moved to a medical check," said the spokeswoman.

    Weather will be good in this area. Greece secured the help of Frontex last year to stem the heavy flow of refugees from Africa and Asia to the country.



    Priceless! A Non EU country involved in Frontex Missions & the Irish not involved. Bloody typical of this nation & the powers.

    Iceland is actually a member of the Shengen border system and therefore also in Frontex.. the news says its the biggest rescue of people in history of the coast guard,, there where bigger ones during ww2

    the trawler Skallagrķmur picked 350 or more British sailors from the sea after a German submarine sunk a British warship .. cant find any details about that now..the grounding of Skeena the pride of Canadian army was also huge, and is little known as it was top secret... if Hitler had known Skeena was lost he might have changed plans, it was forbidden to even mention it in public

    I only know about it from old people that lived the war and then from this memorandum a fisherman Einar Siguršsson took charge of the situation..must be rather special .. a fisherman became a navy commander even multi national naval commander ...I found this about it.. its first in Icelandic.. if you scroll down a little there is a summary in English

    Are the naval service planning on doing this on our ships? Seems a bit over the top. surely a flag would suffice?
    There is no problem that cannot be fixed with high explosive.
