Boxship Vega Auriga banned from Australian ports

Aug. 28, 2014 at 06:52 by Mikhail Voytenko in Maritime Security

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has issued a direction to the container ship Vega Auriga 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.
Deficiencies found since 2011 include faults with fire doors, detection and alarm systems, the availability of fire-fighting equipment, chart and compass issues, cleanliness in food storage areas and the operational readiness of life rafts.
