Donjon Marine Tows Disabled LNG Carrier

Thursday, March 06, 2008
Donjon Marine Co., Inc. provided the 7000hp salvage tug Atlantic Salvor to assist the (LNG) tanker Catalunya Spirit, which lost propulsion and became disabled and adrift East of Cape Cod in February. On February 12, 2008, Donjon Marine, Co., Inc., a provider of multi-faceted marine services including marine salvage, heavy lift, dredging and related emergency response services, was contracted by the ship-owner and the Unified Command at Coast Guard Sector Boston to assist the liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker Catalunya Spirit, which lost propulsion and became disabled and adrift East of Cape Cod.

Donjon provided its 7000-HP salvage tug Atlantic Salvor to pick up the disabled ship at the location where she was dead in the water and tow her to safe anchorage. With the tow wire attached until repairs were completed, Donjon stood by until the vessel got underway. The Catalunya Spirit did not suffer structural damage or release any pollutants when it became disabled.
