A search and rescue operation has been activated by the Kuching Maritime Rescue Sub-Centre for a missing crew member of a tanker that was reported to have sunk in Samalaju waters about 40.2 nautical miles northwest of Bintulu, Sarawak in Malaysia. 

Bintulu Maritime Zone director Captain Mohd Khairol Anuar bin Saad said Kuching MRSC received a report at 10.53am on Saturday (2 July) that the Banga 2 vessel, with four crew members onboard, had sunk in the waters of Samalaju, according to the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) on the same day. 

He said three crew members were rescued by a boat that was coincidentally nearby and taken to land while one Indian crew member, identified as Himanshu Kumar, went missing. 

“According to the crew members who were saved, their ship was hit by a storm and a five-metre wave with a wind speed of 50 knots while anchored in the waters of Samalaju, at about 2am, causing it to sink.

“Three victims, two locals including the captain and one Indian national, managed to get on the life raft but the other crew member is believed to have drifted away from it,” he said.

He noted KM Setia which is currently in Bintulu waters has been mobilised in the search and rescue operation.

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
