USCG Vessels’ Detention Information

VESSEL #1

  • Vessel Type: Chemical Tanker
  • Flag: Liberia
  • Classification Society: GL

Summary of deficiencies:

  1. The condition of the ship and its equipment shall be maintained to conform with the provisions of the present Convention to ensure that the ship in all respects will remain fit to proceed to sea without presenting an unreasonable threat of harm to the marine environment. The PSCO retrieved/reviewed the 15ppm bilge alarm [Oil Content Meter (OCM) – 107(49) approved] recorded data history in comparison with the ORB entries. The PSCO noted four OWS operations recorded and signed by the officer in charge of the operation and the Master in ORB on the following dates 03 FEB 2013, 28 JAN 2013, 27 JAN 2013, and 26 JAN 2013 were not recorded/displayed on the bilge alarm’s recording device indicating an operation/overboard discharge occurred. The accumulative amount of discharge of the aforementioned dates was 147m3. The PSCO observe a satisfactory test of both the OWS operation and the bilge alarm recording device. The protocols for the aforementioned dates were not available for official inspection indicative of a system failure pertaining to the 15 ppm bilge alarm and its capabilities for recording/storing the operating status of the 15 ppm bilge separator as designed/approved.

VESSEL #2

  • Vessel Type: Bulk Carrier
  • Flag: Belize
  • Classification Society: RMRS

Summary of deficiencies:

  1. PSCO observed the quick closing fuel shutoff valve on the Diesel Oil Service tank for the ship’s service generators wired in the open position. The valve is not capable of being remotely closed from a safe position outside the space in the event of a fire occurring in the space which the tank is situated.

VESSEL #3

  • Vessel Type: Research Ship
  • Flag: Panama
  • Classification Society: National Shipping Adjusters Inc

Summary of deficiencies:

  1. The vessel’s SOLAS Cargo Ship Safety Construction Certificate stated that the last two inspections for the outside of the ship’s bottom took place on July 18, 2007 and July 23, 2009. During the date of the examination the PSCO discovered the vessel is overdue for drydock by 7 months exceeding the twice in five with no more than 36 months between inspections.
  2. Fire protection systems shall be kept in good order so as to ensure their required performance if a fire occurs. The PSCO discovered numerous fire detectors throughout the vessel were inoperable.
  3. The means for securing and maintaining weather tightness shall be to the satisfaction of the Administration. USCG inspectors observed numerous hatch covers, doors, and openings on the exposed weather deck missing closure devices resulting in the inability to maintain effective weather tightness.
  4. The PSCO discovered approximately 2 feet of oily/water mixture in the #4 port and starboard ballast tanks. These tanks are not approved for retention onboard of oily bilge water and are capable of being discharge directly overboard without being processed through the 15ppm oil filtering equipment.
  5. Objective evidence discovered in an expanded ISM examination revealed that the company/vessel failed to fully implement the requirements of the Safety Management System. The PSCO discovered: non-functioning smoke/heat detectors; non-compliance with environmental policy – oily water mixtures in ballast tanks; installation of fuel tanks on the main deck; missing port side anchor; fixed CO2 fire extinguishing system for paint locker missing seal and no hydro service date; master is not documenting and submitting non-conformities. An external audit is recommended.

VESSEL #4

  • Vessel Type: Passenger Ship
  • Flag: Bahamas
  • Classification Society: GL

Summary of deficiencies:

  1. While ships are operating within an emission control area (ECA), the sulfur content used on board ships shall not exceed 1% m/m. The PSCO reviewed the IAPP Certificate and verified the vessel utilizes a separate fuel oil (low sulfur 1% m/m) to comply with an established ECA. The PSCO discovered that the vessel has been operating in the North American ECA from 26 Feb – 28 Feb, 2013 utilizing fuel oil that does not comply with the MARPOL Annex VI ECA sulfur limits. Compliant fuel oil was available onboard for use; however the Master failed to   recognize the North American established ECA and require the fuel oil change over to occur prior to entering the ECA.

VESSEL #5

  • Vessel Type: Bulk Carrier
  • Flag: Panama
  • Classification Society: NKK

Summary of deficiencies:

  1. While ships are operating within an emission control area (ECA), the sulfur content used on board ships shall not exceed 1% m/m. The PSCO reviewed the IAPP Certificate and verified the vessel utilizes a separate fuel oil (low sulfur 1% m/m) to comply with an established ECA. The PSCO discovered that the vessel has been operating in the North American ECA from 26JAN – 31JAN 2013 utilizing fuel oil that does not comply with the MARPOL Annex VI ECA sulfur limits. Compliant fuel oil was available onboard for use; however the Master failed to recognize the North American established ECA and require the fuel oil change over to occur prior to entering the ECA.
  2. The master and crew are not familiar with essential shipboard procedure regarding the operation of air pollution prevention equipment. PSCO interviewed the Captain and Chief Engineer and found that both were unaware of the current North American Emission Control Area regulations.

VESSEL #6

  • Vessel Type: Containership
  • Flag: Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
  • Classification Society: N/A

Summary of deficiencies:

  1. The Master and Mate did not produce an appropriate Flag State certificate (license), a valid dispensation, or provide documentary proof that an application for an endorsement has been submitted to the Administration. In addition, the vessel was missing one engine rating and the Master did not provide a letter of dispensation from flag State.
  2. Ship’s crew is not familiar with essential shipboard equipment procedures relating to the preventing of pollution of oil; crew was not capable of properly testing/operating the oily water separator for the attending PSCO.
  3. The PSCO observed fuel oil/oil leaks from various machinery including fuel oil leak on the main engine fuel oil supply line. Fuel oil/oil has been allowed to accumulate in the bilge and poses a significant fire hazard to the vessel due to overall lack of maintenance and cleanliness.
  4. An International Load Line Certificate (1966) shall be issued to every ship which has been surveyed and marked in accordance with the present conventions. Hull markings do not march the certificate. Additionally, the certificate does not reflect correct ship information (name, IMO number, etc.)
  5. Firefighting systems shall be kept in good working order and ready for immediate use. During operational test, the PSCO observed the fire main piping holed/wasted and severely leaking in way of aft cargo hold port side. The fire main system was unable to maintain effective water pressure, limiting the crews firefighting capabilities.
  6. The means for securing and maintaining weather tightness shall be to the satisfaction of the Administration. The arrangements shall ensure that the tightness can be maintained in all sea conditions. The vessel’s cargo hatches and cargo hatch seals/gaskets are wasted/deteriorated and do not create a weather tight space. Additionally, the wasted hatch covers also prevent the securing device from being properly used for securing the hatches.

VESSEL #7

  • Vessel Type: Bulk Carrier
  • Flag: Liberia
  • Classification Society: ABS

Summary of deficiencies:

  1. PSCO observed the water supply line valve for the fixed fire-fighting (hyper mist) system was in the closed position rendering the system inoperable in the event of a fire. Chief Engineer was unaware of this situation and maintenance records indicate the system was last checked on February 23, 2013. The fixed fire-fighting (hyper mist) system in this observed condition is not readily available for immediate operation as designed and approved in the event of a fire.

The above information has been gathered mainly from PSC MoUs websites as well as from various Coast Guard Authorities and may serve only as reference for the inspections being carried out each month onboard merchant vessels. The consistency of the information may differ between MoU since there are slight differences on the way each organization presents the inspection info as well as due to the fact that some countries are member in more than one PSC MoU. For more information on the inspections carried out please refer to each organization’s website.
