Australia: AMSA bans vessel for 3 months for MLC violations

AMSA has issued a direction to the container ship Vega Auriga (IMO 9347786) that prohibits the ship from using or entering any Australian ports due to repeated breaches relating to seafarer welfare and maintenance of the ship.

The Vega Auriga has been detained by AMSA on three occasions since 25 July 2013 with 
repeated concerns for the welfare of the crew including improper payment of wages, inadequate living and working conditions and inadequate maintenance resulting in an unseaworthy and substandard vessel.

General Manager of AMSA’s Ship Safety Division, Allan Schwartz said vessels entering Australian ports must ensure they meet minimum international standards.

“Vessels that do not meet such standards, including standards for the welfare and treatment of crew, pose an increased risk to seafarers, safe operations and the marine environment,” he said.

“Seafarer welfare is just as important as the proper maintenance of ship equipment, and an integral part of safe operations. A failure in either system could lead to serious accidents.”
Australia is a signatory to the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 and AMSA takes its responsibilities for ensuring compliance with all international safety conventions seriously.
“Seafarers live a tough life under even the best of circumstances, spending many months at sea away from family and friends,” said Mr Schwartz.

Those minimum standards are applicable to the 1.4 million seafarers who live and work on international ships.

The direction will remain in place for three months.—ILO Maritime Labour Convention

TEEMCO LLC, an oilfield engineering company based in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond, thrust themselves into the spotlight over the last year, signing huge endorsement deals with the Oklahoma City Thunder, The University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, and local CBS television affiliate KWTV, among others.TEEMCO made another big splash when they announced plans to purchase and renovate the historic Gold Dome building in central Oklahoma City, with their CEO Greg Lorson comparing the building’s positive electromagnetic energy to golf bracelets and revealing plans that included massive aquariums and the world’s largest salt crystal lamp.But as these audacious deals were being signed and promoted, TEEMCO and it’s chief executive were mired in legal and financial issues, and the troubles appear to be quickly escalating.
