On Monday, January 18, 2010, Donjon-SMIT, LLC, an OPA-90 Alliance, was notified by QI Gallagher Marine Services that a vessel required emergency towing assistance.  The Tavricheski Bridge, managed by UNICOM Ship Management, had broken a main engine camshaft and lost main propulsion 160 miles Southeast of Nantucket in the North Atlantic.  The Tavricheski Bridge, a 50,300 GT tanker, was carrying 32,500 MTs of Naptha.  The weather was calm with no significant storms in the area expected within 48 to 72 hours.  On January 19, the Donjon Marine Co., Inc. tug Atlantic Salvor, located in Albany, N.Y., was contracted under a BIMCO TOWHIRE 2008 contract to proceed to the incident location and conduct a rescue tow.  After a 22-hour transit including a brief stop for fuel, the Atlantic Salvor arrived at the Tavricheski Bridge location.  At first light on January 21 the vessel was connected and the Atlantic Salvor proceeded underway enroute for the Stapelton Anchorage in New York Harbor, where delivery occurred early on January 23, 2010.
