CHINA: Bulker boarded in Caofeidian anchorage

A bulk carrier at anchor off the port of Caofeidian in northern China has been boarded and diesel oil stolen.

The International Maritime Bureau’s (IMB) Piracy Reporting Centre said the incident happened during darkness in the early hours of February 10.

A duty officer on the bulker’s bridge noticed a hose running from one of the ship’s diesel tanks to a small, unlit barge lying alongside.

An alarm was raised and a crew member dispatched to investigate.

At that point an intruder was seen to lower the hose and to escape in the barge.

Soundings of the diesel tank showed fuel was missing.

Assessment and Analysis

There have been at least three reports of bulk carriers being boarded at the Caofeidian anchorage and the neighbouring Jingtang anchorage in a little over a month.

At the end of January two robbers boarded an ore carrier from an unlit barge. They were carrying hoses but fled after an alarm was raised.

Earlier in January two robbers armed with an iron bar were spotted on a bulk carrier. They too fled when an alarm was sounded.

Vessels using the Jingtang and Caofeidian anchorages should carefully monitor the approach of small craft and maintain strict watches, especially at night.
