Cypriot bulk carrier banned from Australian ports


The Cypriot-flagged bulk carrier Peace has been banned from entering Australia’s ports for three months.

The Peace was first detained in Newcastle, New South Wales, on May 31, 2024.

Inspections by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) found significant flaws, including a lack of maintenance and severe deterioration of crucial fixtures and hatches.

The three month ban comes amid a string of recent complaints about Danoas Shipping ships.

In January 2024, another containership by Danoas Shipping – Suez Canal – was detained for an extended period of time due to identical structural concerns. The vessel’s detention was lifted only when the necessary repairs were completed to solve the reported faults.
