NOISY nuisance ship Safeen Prime is scheduled to Port Nelson on Thursday in what the port expects to be its final visit to the port. The vessel will be phased out of ANL’s TTZ service, to be replaced by a yet-to-be announced vessel, reports Daily Cargo News.
Noisy nuisance ship shunted
Safeen Prime has left a trail of complaints across Australian and New Zealand ports over the past several months. Now, Port Nelson said it has limited the vessel’s time at the port for its final visit.
“We will endeavour to have the vessel leave the berth as soon as there is sufficient water depth on the rising tide,” the port said in a statement.
The vessel’s operator, ANL, and its owner have made modifications to the vessel to manage noise and is to carry out further changes.
Port of Nelson said the ship has modified funnels on the generators to reduce noise and implemented operational procedures designed to reduce the noise levels until the reactive silencer is installed.
The TTZ service calls weekly at the ports of Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland Tauranga, Wellington, Nelson and Lyttelton. Three vessels are deployed on the service.
