Una joya de la corona, ya aparecía en el libro de oro del París MOU (Pdf con fotos muy descriptivas), pero ahora vuelve a ser noticia porque los ingleses le multan con 13000£.
En la vista de inspección, detectaron a sus tripulantes trabajando en los tanques de lastre sin las medidas adecuadas, o más «finasmente», sin seguir el código de buenas practicas para entrar en espacios cerrados, advirtieron al Capitán, pero volvieron al día siguiente y no solo todo seguía igual, sino que además, estaba el DPA (Designated Person Ashore) en el barco. Ni cortos, ni perezosos, sacaron la libreta, y a éste también le ha tocado parte de la multa.
On the 19 June 2012, a Port State Control Inspector from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) boarded the Panama registered vessel Terry Siete at Portland. During his inspection the Inspector noted that access was being made into the vessel’s ballast tanks without proper procedures being in place. The Master was issued with a Prohibition Notice requiring entries be made in the correct manner in accordance with the Code of Safe Working Practices.
On the 20 August 2012, the Inspector returned to the vessel. On checking various documents, reports and permits, he identified that entries had been made into the ballast tanks of the Terry Siete without a valid gas free certificate being in place. Further investigation confirmed this information. It also confirmed that the DPA had been present onboard when these entries had been taking place.
The owners of the Terry Siete, PM Shipping International SA of Santander, Spain pleaded guilty to a breach of the Merchant Shipping (International Safety Management (ISM) Code) Regulations 1998 (S.I. 1561) for failing to comply with objectives of the ISM Code. The company was today fined Ã?Â£5,000 plus costs of Ã?Â£6,652.50 at a hearing at Southampton Magistrates Court.
At a previous hearing, the Designated Person Ashore (DPA), Mr Luis Monton had pleaded guilty to a breach of the Merchant Shipping (International Safety Management (ISM) Code) Regulations 1998 (S.I. 1561) for failing to ensure proper procedures were in place. He was fined Ã?Â£1,000 plus costs of Ã?Â£500.
