Amver ships save 43 migrants in August

Amver saved 43 migrants in August. We're proud of these crews and say Bravo Zulu to them for helping save lives at sea.

August 15, 2014

US Coast Guard rescue personnel at Sector Key West received notification from the Amver participating ship Chem Antares that the crew located a rustic raft with four persons on it approximately 44 miles southwest of Marathon, Fla. The crew of the Marshall Island flagged tanker embarked the migrants and assessed their medical condition before transferring them to the Coast Guard.

August 16, 2014

Rescue personnel at the US Coast Guard Seventh District received notification from the Amver participating cruise ship Allure of the Seas that the Bahamian flagged cruise ship had embarked five Cuban migrants after locating their rustic raft 81 miles southwest of Key West, Fla. The migrants were evaluated for medical problems, given a clean bill of health and transferred to the US Coast Guard.

August 22, 2014

The Amver participating M/V Eternal Sunshine notified US Coast Guard rescue personnel they encountered a rustic raft with seven Cuban migrants. The Eternal Sunshine launched a small boat to embark the migrants from their disabled vessel and provided food and water. The crew of the 587 tanker also hoisted the raft aboard the ship. The migrants were transferred to the US Coast Guard.

In another case that day, the M/V Cap Guillaume encountered a disabled vessel and persons in the water 45 miles north of Grand Bahamas Island. The Greek flagged tanker rescued 16 migrants and US Coast Guard personnel in Miami, Fla. diverted the USCGC William Flores which embarked an additional 10 migrants and transferred the 16 from the Cap Guillaume.

August 23, 2014

The Amver participating cruise ship Carnival Liberty located a rustic raft 62 miles south of Andros Island, Bahamas and embarked eleven Cuban migrants. There were no medical concerns. The Panamanian flagged cruise ship notified the US Coast Guard and transferred the migrants to the Coast Guard Cutter Valiant.

You, the shipping community, help us increase the numbers of available search and rescue resources. In other words, you help increase the likelihood people in distress at sea will be saved. How do you do that? By enrolling in Amver.

Amver tanker saves 10 fishermen in the Indian Ocean

Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) officials report an Amver participating tanker rescued ten Taiwanese fishermen after their vessel caught fire and sank in the middle of the Indian Ocean on Wednesday, August 13, 2014.

AMSA rescue personnel identified the Amver participating tanker, High Pearl, and requested the ship divert to assist the fishermen. The Singapore flagged tanker arrived on scene and reported ten fishermen had abandoned ship on a rubber mattress. All ten crew members were rescued without incident.

The High Pearl, on time charter with d'Amico of Italy, will continue on a voyage to Durban, South Africa where the fishermen will disembark.

The High Pearl enrolled in Amver on December 16, 2009 and has earned one Amver award for participation.
