Here is an article from tradewinds dated August 15, 2017 regarding the MV Transatlantic.
A general cargoship owned by TransAtlantic Lines remains under a “no sail” order from the US Coast Guard. But the company says it is repairing the deficiencies found aboard the vessel.
The 5,100-dwt Transatlantic (built 1997) has been at anchor at the port of Los Angeles since 1 June, according to AIS Tracking data. The US Coast Guard Captain of the Port of Los Angeles - Long Beach issued a no sail order in June due to deficiencies found on board during an inspection, according to Public Affairs Officer Mark Barney.
He says inspectors found that the ship’s backup diesel generator was not working, as well as other problems found on board. He did not have details of other deficiencies found in the inspection.
“The generator was the main thing,” Barney said. “Once they discovered that the generator wasn’t working, they looked for other deficiencies on board.”
Australian port state control cited the Transatlantic for seven deficiencies when the ship made call at Darwin in April, according to Equasis.
In a statement, the Greenwich-based company says the “Transatlantic recently completed a charter for the Military Sealift Command from Japan to the US West Coast and is currently undertaking maintenance.”
The Transatlantic has had previous run-ins with the US Coast Guard. In February, the USCG sent a letter to the owner saying that deficiencies found aboard both the Transatlantic and the 2,000-dwt Geysir (built 1980) were “objective evidence” that the company’s safety management system may be inadequate.
The Geysir itself remains under arrest in Florida following a dispute over unpaid bills.
