Tanker Detained In U.K.

Wednesday, February 23, 2000
An Italian classed oil tanker has reportedly been detained at the U.K. port of Felixstowe after an inspection found a number of defects, the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency said. The Panamanian-flagged 1972-built Alboran 1, a 3,764 gross ton tanker, was inspected after RINA, said it had withdrawn class and statutory certificates from the vessel, the Coastguard said. The U.K. inspectors confirmed RINA's decision to withdraw certificates due to numerous defects to equipment and machinery. The inspector said he had no choice but to detain the vessel which the Coastguard said was operated by Greece's Golden Carriers Shipping SA.
