• We are proud to announce that the US Coast Guard has approved Enesel Limited’s enrollment to QUALSHIP 21 program. Specifically, the USCG states: “Less than 20% of all foreign-flagged vessels that operate in the United States meet the strict eligibility requirements of this program; therefore, we applaud the efforts of Enesel Limited and the master and crew of the QUALSHIP 21 designated vessels for consistently maintaining an exceptional commitment to quality.”

  • As part of the ENESEL Group’s ongoing commitment to driving positive social impact, this December we have through the Greek Shipowners’ Social Welfare Company Syn-Enosis (www.syn-enosis.gr) made a significant donation towards the cost of 10 fully equipped high speed patrol vessels to be supplied to the Hellenic Coast Guard.

    We are very proud to support the Hellenic Coast Guard in its work, and in so doing to recognize its important contribution to the Greek shipping industry.

  • Limassol, December 4th, 2019.

    We, Enesel Limited, managers of the container ship THALASSA PATRIS (IMO 9665607, sailing under the flag of Singapore), regret to advise that our Second Officer, reported missing on November 23rd, has still not been found. 

    As previously reported, the Second Officer was last seen after the change of watch at 22:00 UTC on November 22nd, whilst the vessel was sailing in the Indian Ocean (62 nautical miles south-west of Sri Lanka and weather conditions north-east wind force 6 and sea state 1.2 to 1.5 metres). As soon as the Second Officer was confirmed to be missing, the man overboard protocol was triggered. The search and rescue operation was initiated on November 23rd at 06:50 UTC under the command and the valuable assistance of the regional authorities. The vessel, following the orders of the Maritime Rescue and Coordination Centre Colombo (“MRCC Colombo”), duly retraced her route back to where she had been at the time of the change of watch of the missing Officer. At 08:43 UTC on November 24th the vessel was regrettably ordered by the MRCC Colombo to conclude the search and rescue operation. Despite the fact that that operation was not successful in locating our Second Officer, the vessel’s remaining officers and crew continued to systematically and exhaustively search for him on board, sadly with no results. 

    At the early morning of December 3rd, the vessel arrived at the Port of Piraeus, Greece. Upon her berthing, investigators from all pertinent authorities boarded. Multiple investigations were conducted simultaneously, one from the Singaporean authorities, one from the Greek authorities and one arranged directly by us undertaken by the globally renowned firm, Control Risks, which specialises in security and risk investigations. Additionally, we engaged specially trained sniffer dogs to search on board the vessel in an effort to ensure that all available means at our disposal to locate the missing Officer were utilised.  

    The Greek authorities’ investigation, which was conducted by way of assistance to the Singaporean authorities, was concluded on December 4th with no adverse findings or any signs of foul play as to the circumstances of the missing Officer’s disappearance. A special thank you to the Hellenic Coast Guard officials for the care and interest they have shown in this very sad incident. 

    The ship has therefore sailed from the port of Piraeus. 

    Throughout this incident we have been in continuous contact with the authorities with which we have fully cooperated and will continue to do so. 

    We have endeavoured to provide support and assistance to our Second Officer’s family at this difficult time. Family members were also invited on board the vessel in order to be able to observe themselves the scene of the Second Officer’s disappearance and meet with crew members as well as the attending investigators. Their well-being, as well as that of our remaining crew on board, is of paramount importance to us and we will continue to work diligently in this respect. A word of thanks to our crew and officers on board for their diligence and care during this very challenging and demanding time. 

    We will provide updates with further information as it becomes available to us.
