Tokyo Triumph in trouble

Several deviancies regarding marine regulations were found by police inspectors on containership Tokyo Triumph (IMO 9737474) after the ship docked in Hamburg on January 9th.

Administrative charges were instituted against the captain, the first officer and the chief engineer and a fine of €21,843 was levied.

Apparently the chief engineer had not switched from high to low sulfur fuel for the auxiliary diesel in the North Sea. In addition, the 56-year-old had entered incorrect information on the changeover time in the prescribed documentation. At the Burchard Quay in the Waltershof port the officials also found that, despite open outboard valves, the ship’s effluents were not chlorinated as prescribed in the on-board wastewater treatment plant.

The first officer had already pumped untreated ballast water into the port of Hamburg in November 2017. In addition, the control group complained that the ballast water-, oil- and refuse diaries were not kept in accordance with the regulations. The ship left Hamburg again on January 11th bound for Rotterdam.

2017-built, Singapore-flagged, 150,709 gt Tokyo Triumph is owned by IS Container Pte ltd of Singapore, and managed by Fleet Ship Management Pte Ltd of Singapore. It is entered with Japan Club (Singapore office in charge).
