Salvors Rescue Cargo Ship in North Sea

Monday, November 12, 2007
Leading salvage and towage company Multraship Salvage BV and Belgian salvage specialist URS Salvage & Maritime Contracting have rescued the general cargo vessel Eva Danielsen after the Bahamas-flagged vessel got into difficulties off the North Hinder traffic separation zone in the North Sea early on the morning of November 9. The vessel’s problems were caused by a total power black-out, which the crew was not able to rectify. The vessel’s owners contracted Multraship and URS under an LOF 2000 agreement to bring the vessel to safety. The weather on site was extremely poor, with Force 9 winds blowing from the north-west, and wave heights reaching seven metres. The salvage tugs Multratug 7 and Brugge sailed from Flushing and Zeebrugge, respectively, for the stricken vessel, while the salvage craft Brandaris was also dispatched, from Nieuwpoort. At about 16.16 hrs, Multratug 7 managed to establish a tow connection to the casualty, and thereafter started towing it to Flushing. The Eva Danielsen was loaded with about 1,950 tonnes of steel plates and steel bars.
