One skiff with five heavily armed pirates approached a product tanker while underway. Alarm was raised, crew alerted, fire pumps started, speed increased, evasive manoeuvres made, SSAS alert activated and authorities were informed. The pirates fired at the tanker and the armed security on board returned fire. The skiff aborted the attack and moved away.

 

220-13  04.11.2013: 1230 LT: Posn: 03:54N – 098:46E, Belawan Anchorage, Indonesia.

 

Duty crew on board an anchored chemical tanker spotted two boats nearby. Robbers attempted to board the tanker via anchor chain but alert crew thwarted the boarding. The second boat was hidden near the propeller and the crew could not chase them away with fire hoses. The propeller was turned on resulting in the robbers moving away. The robbers were sported with some stolen hull anodes in their boat. Port Control informed.
