Turkish schooner-the offender was convoyed to Odessa sea port

On March 25, about 10 o'clock in the morning accompanied by the ship's marine protection "Nikolaev" Turkish fishing schooner ZOR called at the New Harbor of the port of Odessa. The ship moored at the berth No.16 and was immediately taken under protection by the special department of the State Border Service.


The circumstances of the detention of the schooner were given to the journalists by the officer commanding of Odessa Maritime Guard Department of the State Border Service of Ukraine, captain I rank Dmitry Dukov, and by assistant commander of the Maritime Guard "Nikolaev", commander of the examination service, Lieutenant-Commander Denis Zakharchuk.


According to information obtained, the following is known:

A fishing schooner ZOR was in operational development of Ukrainian border guards for quite a long time. On March 24, at night, after the receipt of relevant information, Maritime reconnaissance aircraft and the ship sea protection "Nikolaev" were sent to the area of the alleged illegal fishering by fishing schooner of flounder-turbots in the exclusive Maritime economic zone of Ukraine. After the record from aircraft that stated that the vessel casted nets, the coordinates of the schooner were given to the border ship, which immediately moved to the specified point.


Turkish sailors, took by surprise, did not attempt to escape. The arrest was performed in 51 miles to the South West from Zmeinij Island. When the inspection team climbed on the ZOR vessel, there were found 10 km of nets for fishing and 2.5 tons of dry ice. To the opinion of border guards, due to the deadweight of the schooner, which is 43 tons, and onboard amount of fishing gear, Turkish fishermen could in one calling at Zmeinij Island catch up to 10 tons of valuable fish species. It is interesting, that the master of the schooner ZOR, the name isn’t mentioned, was detained repeatedly by Ukrainian border guards while attempting illegal fishing.


It should be recalled that five years ago, on April 5, 2010, the Maritime Guard Department of the State Border Service of Ukraine arrested two Turkish schooners near Zmeinij Island, and then convoyed them to Odessa; they are m/v MUAMER REIS and m/v HASAN. Schooner HASAN was confiscated by the decision of the court and later converted into a Ukrainian guard ship.


According to captain I rank Dmitry Dukov, in recent years a number of attempts of Turkish fishermen to engage in illegal fishing in the exclusive Maritime economic zone of Ukraine have decreased significantly.

The main objectives in port industry and their solutions were underlined in USPA

(from the materials of the press conference of the SE “USPA” CEO Andrey Amelin on  March 18, 2015, Odessa).


Among the priorities in the port industry there are: capital fund renewal, improvement of the regulatory basis, the development of port infrastructure, of electronic document management and the establishment of the FEZ in Ukrainian sea ports. About the tasks and ways of development of the port economy, the SE “USPA” CEO Andrey Amelin told during the press conference


 "Today, moral and physical depreciation of fixed assets at seaports is from 80% to 90%. Therefore, there is no other choice but to exclude state stevedoring companies -  sea trading ports from the list of objects of state property that are not a subject to privatization. Next it is needed to look for the most balanced and effective solutions for each specific CSP (commercial sea port) in cooperation with the specialists, local authorities, groups of enterprises",- underlined the CEO of the enterprise.


Also among the primary steps to improve the regulatory basis of the port industry and attracting investments, CEO has allocated the necessary changes to several laws, including the Laws "On sea ports of Ukraine", "On management of state property", etc.


"All the necessary draft documents Has been already prepared by USPA specialists and require political will and inclusion in regulatory procedure",- said Andrey Amelin.


To improve the operation of state enterprises, there is an urgent need for decentralization and optimization of the control system. We are talking about changing the approval of the financial plan, procurement, disposition of property. In particular, due to the complex and long procedure of approval of the financial plan, the company failed to perform the full scope of works on development of infrastructure in the past year.


To improve control procedures, USPA seaports works on further implementation of the Information system of the port community, and participates in the reduction of the activity of the control bodies to the European standards.


Also, to optimize the procedures of obtaining permits on performing dredging, the most urgent is the issue concerning amending the Decree of CMU as of 12.07.2005 No. 557, which regulates the procedure mentioned.


At the same time, a comprehensive solution for many problems of the industry will be the creation of special (free) economic zones in all the seaports of the country. The mechanism of the FEZ will provide additional investment attractiveness, as well as sustainable development of port areas for the long term period.


"The construction of modern infrastructure at the territories of seaports is a progressive step, repeatedly tested in the leading ports of the world. When creating FEZ investor must receive a clear road map for approval of investment project, the ability to transparently acquire the land for the period of implementation of the project and have a clear right to protect their investment. This partnership of state and private sector will benefit all," said Andrey Amelin.

The dredger "Ingulskij" performed dredging in a volume of 80 thousand cubic meters (including the approach channel that is 45 cubic meters and the water area which is 35 thousand cubic meters). Thanks to the dredging the operation of the ferry line Skadovsk-Zonguldak was restored.


It must be underlined that a performance of large-scale dredging works became possible due to centralized system management of these works and due to own specialized USPA fleet.


“Today the works are being performed in large ports and harbors, which couldn’t allow earlier such expensive works as dredging and even the support of nominal characteristics.

On March 17, at the berth No.15th of Odessa sea port a new music video for musical group Septa (leader and vocalist of the group is Eugene Timchik) was being shoot.


As to the information on sites, Septa is an Odessa Quartet, formed in 2010. The boys are playing music in the style of alternative rock, plus experimenting with such styles as post-rock, trip-hop, hardcore. In a relatively short time of its existence the band from Odessa has worked with such well-known Western artists, such as Chris Common (These Arms Are Snakes), Mehdi Safa (*shels) and Matt Bales (Minus the Bear). Today, Septa has released two albums - Lover (2013) and Destroyer (2014).


Interesting coincidence. At the time the shooting started the wind in the harbour though was squally, but did not exceed 7 m/s. After an hour of alternative rock the weather station of the port recorded an increase of wind force up to 6 (10 m/s) and sent the record to the relevant storm warning services. When alternative rock on the dock stopped, the wind calmed and storm warning was cancelled.

Unique unloader crane called at Odessa sea port

On March 14, a self-propelled crane vessel Atlas Double (76х23 m, Beliz) called at Odessa sea port for the first time. Up to day it is the most modern floating vessel in Ukraine with 2 cranes for transshipment of bulk cargo in high seas.



Atlas Double was designed and built in Ukraine. It was commissioned last year. The vessel is provided with two Liebherr cranes with lifting capacity of 35 tons each with a maximum reach of 36 m. the Crane is able to handle vessels with deadweight up to 300 thousand tons with an intensity of more than 40 thousand tons per day. This enables to upload large ships from two "rivers" simultaneously.


The Distinctive features of self-propelled crane are high maneuverability, which provide vertical thrusters at the bow and stern, as well as a unique stabilization system pitching, not allowing the vessel to give a roll of more than 3 degrees. Atlas Double can perform sea voyages, work in cramped conditions and to moor without tugs.



In the last few years regular guests of Odessa port are cranes Atlas-1, Atlas-4 and Atlas 5, used for roadstead vessel’s additional loading.  First call of AtlasDouble at the Harbor became an event for city media.
