The 57,144 dwt bulker arrived on July 4 (according to Marine Traffic’s AIS data) in Tabonneo anchorage, Indonesia. Then after 5 normal days, the incident happened.

The robbery takes place on July 10 while the Inidian-registered bulk carrier Vishya Nidhi is on anchorage. A number of robbers boarded and escaped unnoticed bringing some ship’s properties according to data from the International Maritime Bureau’s Piracy Reporting Centre (IMB PRC).

The theft was only discovered when the duty performed routine rounds.

This boarding/roberry is the latest incident related to anchorages in Indonesia. During June there were two robbery/boarding attemps reported to the IMB PRC.

First is an attempt to rob an anchored tanker in the country’s Balikpapan Anchorage. Alert duty crew noticed the persons and informed the bridge officer, upon which an alarm was raised and crew mustered. Upon hearing the alarm and seeing the crew alertness, the unauthorized persons aborted the boarding.

The second incident occurred in the Dumai Inner Anchorage, when three robbers armed with knives boarded an anchored bulk carrier. Two robbers managed to enter the engine room, threaten the duty oiler and order him not to raise the alarm. The robbers then stole engine spares and escaped.

During the first half of the year a total of 30 incidents, mainly opportunist theft, occurred at the ports and anchorages in Asia, 75 percent of which were related to Indonesia and India, according to the infographics released by the Asian piracy watchdog ReCAAP ISC.

For being well known of robbery and boarding incident in Indonesian waters, many shipping company requires their ship to hire Indonesian Security support to protect ship against unwanted thefts or piracy.

Ship crews should always be alert and ready to take any appropriate actions in any circumstances may occur. Keeping watch to look over all sides of the ship is recommended, quick reporting and response is really advised.
