Bulk Carrier Listing in Rough Seas

Friday, June 22, 2007
According to the New Zealand Press, the Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) says it is closely tracking the progress of the bulk carrier Taharoa Express, which is listing after its load shifted in heavy swells. The vessel reported to Maritime New Zealand that it had a problem after its load of iron sand shifted while in rough sea about 42 nautical miles south west of Cape Egmont. The vessel is intact and not taking on any water, and all 25 crew are safe, Maritime New Zealand said. Maritime New Zealand said it was concerned and is keeping a close eye on the situation, at this point there are no reports of the vessel being in danger or distress. The Port of Taharoa pilot and loading master is on board the carrier and is overseeing its progress as it heads for Nelson. Source: New Zealand Press
