    Congress has approved, and President Biden has signed into law, the Fiscal Year 2022 spending package that will fully fund both the Maritime Security Program and a new Tanker Security Program.

    The MSP is funded at $318 million, which provides a $5.3 million stipend per ship, and the TSP is funded at $60 million, providing each vessel with $6 million.

    The legislation also includes $13.6 billion in military and humanitarian aid for Ukraine.

    Legislators moved rapidly on the bipartisan legislation, which passed the House of Representatives late on March 16, less than a day after it was introduced, and cleared the Senate 24 hours later.

    The TSP is a planned fleet of 10 commercial U.S.-flag petroleum product tankers to support America’s strategic defense needs by reducing the military’s reliance on foreign-flag vessels.

    MARAD has the authority to immediately start the process of soliciting applications from companies for the enrollment of vessels in the new program.

    The MV EVER FORWARD, a Hong Kong-flag containership, grounded Sunday night in the Chesapeake Bay, shortly after departing Baltimore on route to Norfolk.

    A spokesperson for the Coast Guard Fifth District said Monday that it was coordinating with shipowner Evergreen Marine to work out the logistics of refloating the vessel. Tugboats have been deployed from Baltimore to assist.

    Evergreen Marine is the owner of the MV EVER GIVEN, the containership that grounded a year ago in the Suez Canal, causing a 400-ship backup that drew the world’s attention to the fragility of the global supply chain.

    According to AIS data, the 2020-built EVER FORWARD was traveling at a speed of between 8 and 13 knots when it departed Baltimore.

    The Coast Guard was informed around 2100 Sunday that the vessel was aground off Gibson Island in the Craighill Channel.

    There is no visible pollution or apparent damage to the vessel, which is outside the main shipping channel in about 25 feet of water.

    The Coast Guard said it is investigating the possibility that the ship experienced a mechanical failure.

    A surge in Covid-19 infections in a growing number of cities has led authorities in China to quarantine neighborhoods, shutter factories and reimpose mass testing on thousands of residents.

    Ships are experiencing long port delays, freight rates are on the rise and products are piling up in warehouses as the country works to contain its worst outbreak since the early days of the pandemic.

    New Covid-19 cases have been reported in 21 provinces and municipalities across China, including Beijing and other major cities such as Shanghai and Shenzhen.

    On March 14, Bloomberg said there were 72 vessels waiting to enter Qingdao port in Shandong, almost double the number of a few weeks earlier.

    In keeping with China’s zero-tolerance policy, officials in Beijing and a growing number of cities and provinces are imposing measures that include quarantining residents in government facilities.

    “Recently, local clustered epidemics have occurred in many places in our country, mainly of the Omicron variant, which has spread quickly and is very hidden,” Mi Feng, a spokesman for the National Health and Health Commission, was quoted as saying.

    “The epidemic prevention and control is more difficult, and the situation is severe and complicated.”

    Ports in China now require workers to live and work on site for months to prevent infections.

    This has allowed them to keep operating even during outbreaks, in contrast with last spring and summer when infections forced extended closings of container terminals in Shenzhen and near Shanghai.

    But with truck traffic to the docks interrupted, ships are facing delays of at least 12 hours, and may soon have to wait for as long as two weeks, a spokesperson for a logistics consulting firm said.

    Six American maritime labor organizations have written to President Biden to express their strong support for the actions he has taken in response to Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

    MM&P joined five other unions—the American Maritime Officers, the Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association, the Marine Firemen’s Union, the Sailors’ Union of the Pacific and the Seafarers International Union—in a March 9 letter that underlined their readiness “to do what we can to support the strongest possible economic responses necessary to bring this conflict to a quick and successful conclusion.”

    “On behalf of the undersigned American maritime labor organizations, we offer our strong support for the actions you are taking to combat the horrific and unjustified attack by Russia against Ukraine,” the six union presidents wrote.

    “This unprovoked attack not only threatens the right of freedom-loving people in Ukraine to continue to live in a democracy but poses the most serious threat to our friends and allies in Europe since World War II.”

    “Our unions and the licensed and unlicensed American merchant mariners we represent have never turned away from the challenges that must be faced to preserve the democratic way of life at home and overseas,” they wrote.

    “As they did during World War II and in every conflict and international emergency before and since, the men and women of the U.S.-flag merchant marine stand ready to do what we can to support the strongest possible economic responses necessary to bring this conflict to a quick and successful conclusion.”

    “To this end, we strongly endorse your decision to end all oil and natural gas imports from Russia as well as the imposition of additional rigorous trade sanctions against Russia as deemed appropriate.”

    “We understand and appreciate that these actions will likely have a negative economic impact on many of our fellow citizens and many of our members who are still struggling to recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

    “However, the men and women of the U.S.-flag merchant marine also understand that such a sacrifice is once again necessary in order for our country to provide the leadership the rest of the free world has come to expect and rely upon.”

    “As our nation’s fourth arm of defense, the U.S.-flag merchant marine and its cadre of American merchant mariners have a unique role and proud tradition of service to our country in time of war or other emergency.”

    “We again stand ready to work with you and your Administration to provide the support and service our country needs.”

    The letter was signed by MM&P President Don Marcus, SUP President David Connolly, AMO President Paul Doell, MFOW President Anthony Poplawski, SIU President Michael Sacco, and MEBA President Adam Vokac.

    The International Maritime Organization has called for establishment of a humanitarian corridor to allow seafarers to be safely evacuated from dangerous areas in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.

    Participants in an extraordinary session of the IMO Council on March 10 and 11 said there is an urgent need for “a humanitarian blue corridor” to protect seafarers, secure the maritime domain and ensure commercial vessels don’t come under attack.

    They asked IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim “to collaborate with the relevant parties and take necessary immediate actions” to move the plan forward as part of a broader strategy to reduce the suffering of seafarers and their families.

    It includes allowing ships to sail from Ukrainian ports as soon as possible without threat of attack, condemning any form of harassment of seafarers, giving them free access to communications with their families and allowing their unrestricted movement.

    The Council also urged countries to exempt seafarers from mandatory military service because of their key worker status.

    Given the emergency situation, it called on port state control officers to be flexible if presented with expired documents.

    “Multiple ships have been hit by munitions, seafarers have been killed and injured and seafarers of all nationalities are trapped on ships berthed in ports,” said International Chamber of Shipping Secretary General Guy Platten.

    “It is of the utmost urgency that their evacuation from these areas of threat should be ensured by those states with the power to do so.”

    The ICS also noted that the conflict will put increased pressure on the maritime industry because of the sudden shutdown of travel to and from Ukraine and Russia, which together account for at least 15 percent of the international seafaring workforce.

    The USCG Cutter SPAR is headed to its new homeport in Duluth, Minn., where the crew will assume responsibilities on Lake Superior that include maintaining aids to navigation and icebreaking.

    The 225-foot cutter, formerly homeported in Alaska, has been in the Coast Guard Yard in Baltimore for the past year for scheduled maintenance to prepare it for its new Great Lakes assignment.

    On board the SPAR is the same Great Lakes crew who served aboard the cutter ALDER, which operated for years in the Great Lakes region.

    Once the SPAR reaches the St. Lawrence Seaway, it will make its way through the Great Lakes until it reaches Duluth and the crew will assume the ALDER’s area of responsibility: maintaining aids to navigation, domestic icebreaking, search and rescue and law enforcement.

    The ALDER is now in Baltimore for its own scheduled maintenance, after which it will be deployed to the San Francisco area.

    The SPAR is named after the Coast Guard Women’s Reserves, known as SPARS, which were created by President Franklin Roosevelt in November 1942, when women were first admitted to the service.

    The name SPARS is inspired by the Coast Guard motto, “Semper Paratus.”

    The SPAR is the second Coast Guard Cutter to carry the name. The first was SPAR (WLB-403) which was built in Duluth in 1943.

    “Throughout the Coast Guard, the 225′ Juniper class buoy tenders are undergoing Midlife Maintenance Availability, during which critical ship systems are evaluated and extensive repairs are made,” the Coast Guard said in a statement.

    “As each of these ships leaves the yard they are also switching homeports, which allows most areas to only be without a buoy tender for 7 months instead of a full year.”

    “The Juniper class ships, which have been superbly managing the nation’s extensive maritime infrastructure, are expected to continue to service aids to navigation for many years to come.”
