Hudson Leader Caught in the Net

M/V Hudson Leader arrived at Bremerhaven in the evening of 28th August 2014.The vessel had a standard risk profile and the last PSC inspection was done in April 2013. The ship had Priority I. Two PSCOs arrived the next morning at the vessel for an inspection. During this inspection 43 deficiencies were revealed of which 17 were considered as ground for detention and 38 were ISM related. On 29th August 2014 "Hudson Leader" was detained. Due to the obvious sub-standard of the vessel (severe detainable deficiencies in several areas), the inspection was suspended. Flag state and RO were informed about detention and suspension. A local shipyard estimated a minimum of five days work with three shifts of 24 hours per day for rectifying all the deficiencies. After all repairs were done and all deficiencies found satisfactory rectified "Hudson Leader" was released from detention on the afternoon of 6th September 2014. She continued her voyage via Emden back to Asian waters with a 8 days delay.
