Annex 24 MV Andromeda timeline and route



1. Vessel information:

2. The analysis of the course taken by the MV Andromeda provides no substantial evidence that the vessel was heading to Libya. To appreciate the case, it is helpful to superimpose two sets of communication on the route taken by the vessel: First, the commercial dispute between the freight agents and the vessel manager; Second, the exchange between Andromeda managers and business associates with port agents. Copies of the emails are stored in the Panel’s archives.

3. Different phases can be distinguished:

1. Loading of the cargo and sailing to Port Said anchorage to cross the Suez Canal.

2. Sailing to Larnaca and Limassol, Cyprus, and drifting.

3. Return to Port Said anchorage.

4. Sailing away from Port Said towards Crete due to bad weather condition.

5. Sailing in direction to bay of Kalamata.

6. Sailing towards Heraklion, Crete, to avoid bad weather and seizure.

 

Table: The timeline compiles two types of data: First it retraces the main itinerary taken by the MV Andromeda; Second, it places against it the communication between the parties involved in the shipment’s logistics.

5. The manager of MV Andromeda previously experienced problems with the AIS signal and asked Marine Traffic to solve the issue in October 2017. Marine Traffic confirmed that the signal was producing wrong results, because in all likelihood another vessel received the same MMSI code from the Flag State, Tanzania:

  George Triantafyllopoulos (MarineTraffic Support) Oct 31, 12:00 EET Hello again, I hope you are doing well. Thank you for being so patient while we were working on resolving the issue you described. As originally suspected, the issue you mentioned had to do with the fact that, as previously discussed, there is another vessel that shares the same MMSI, Call Sign and moves around the same area as your vessel, causing an issue for the data we receive from both vessels to be appropriately translated into our Database. From our side, the only viable option to avoid this mix up moving forward is to establish a different MMSI for your vessel in our system. This is the only way to make sure that the signals we receive from your vessel are correctly translated into our database, and subsequently in our Live Map. As you might have already noticed, since doing that, you have been receiving a normal amount of positions the last few days. Once again thank you for being patient and I do apologise for any inconvenience caused so far. If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know. Best regards, George Triantafyllopoulos Add value to your business: Solutions | Book your demo | Business Directory MarineTraffic

 

  George Triantafyllopoulos (MarineTraffic Support) Oct 17, 15:52 EEST Hello again, Thank you for your immediate response. I have now escalated this ticket and passed it over to the appropriate department. As soon as I have more information, I will let you know. In the meantime, if there is anything else I can do for you, please don't hesitate to contact me again. All the Best, George Triantafyllopoulos MarineTraffic

  George Triantafyllopoulos (MarineTraffic Support) Oct 17, 15:12 EEST Hello again, I hope you are doing well. I can see that indeed the vessel you are referring to has not displayed a position for the past few weeks. I truly apologize for this inconvenience. There is a possibility that the use of the same MMSI that we noticed last time, is causing some confusion. I will have to contact the data Team about this issue. Before escalating the issue for a further investigation, I will kindly ask you to provide me with some more information about the recent locations that the vessel has travelled to, so I can give them more information. Thank you in advance. I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards, George Triantafyllopoulos MarineTraffic

Thank you in advance Kindly Operation Depart

6. The Panel requested from the Flag State, Tanzania, the Long-range identification and tracking system (LRIT), but did not receive a reply. At the same time, the Panel noted that Marine Traffic continued to show AIS information on its map, though the MV Andromeda remained at the port of Heraklion. For example, Marine Traffic showed MV Andromeda sailing from Haifa, Israel, to Beirut, Lebanon, between 2 to 10 July 2018:
