  • 'Nina s' laid up after arrest
    Early morning on the River Fal, south west England, as the Liberian-flag 37,528 dwt bulk carrier Nina S is laid up, having been arrested by the Royal Bank of Scotland, writes David Barnicoat. She is pictured with the A&P Falmouth harbour tug St Mawes (ex Watkin's Thames tug Ionia ) mooring to buoys in the river, one of the cheapest places in western Europe to lay up ships. The Kosmos Marine Line-owned 20-year-old bulker was arrested at the UK port of Tilbury earlier this month after discharging a cargo of timber from Indonesia.

  • Melbourne tops cost table again
    MELBOURNE remains one of the highest cost ports for ship based charges according to the latest survey of international port costs by Liner Shipping Services Ltd.
    The chief executive officer of Liner Shipping Services Ltd, Llew Russell, said calls at 34 ports were included in this survey, which included all ship based charges, both statutory and non-statutory but, importantly, excluded costs involving cargo such as stevedoring and wharfage on full containers.
    Mr Russell said that there was an average of 24 calls at each of the ports listed over the last six months of 1997, and the ship-based charges covered in the survey included navigation services charges/tonnage dues, berth hire, light dues, pilotage, towage, mooring/unmooring charges and line handling, utilities and wharfage on empty containers which are for the account of the shipowner.

    Mr Reith disclosed the move after discussions with the New Zealand Minister for Transport, Maurice Williamson, in Canberra.
