MARITIME | Brazilian tanker crippled for 11 days

M/T Livramento

Transpetro, the maritime transportation arm of  the Brazilian oil giant Petrobras, reported yesterday (19) that M/T Livramento has been suffering from technical problems in her main engine since July 9, at a location around 900 nautical miles off Mauritius Islands.

The carrier said that a tug has been around the ship, which is in ballast, since last Saturday (17). However, unfavourable weather has prevented the making fast of the tug to the ship.

Transpetro expects that the towing operation can start tomorrow (21).

The ship has a crew of 33 and reportedly food for 75 days.
