Two Ships Aground Near Novorossiisk

Monday, March 06, 2006
Twp foreign motor ships, which are in distress in the Tsemesskaya bay, could not get afloat from banks after a strong gale pushed the Barcelona and Ibragim-R motor ships closer to the shore. The Barcelon,a with a displacement of 6,000 tonnes and at 116 meters long, is now in the area of Cape Doob, while the Ibragim-R, with a displacement of 6,500 tonnes and at 105 meters long, is in the area of Kabardinka. According to Itar Tassa, the Novorossiisk port has not received requests for assistance from the motor ships. A total of 43 crewmembers remain on the ships. The continuing strong gale with gusts of up to 18 meters per second interferes with evacuating people and inspecting the state of the ships’ bottoms. The motor ships are without cargoes. The Barcelona came to Novorossiisk flying the Malta flag, while the Ibragim-R is under the Cambodian flag. (Source: Itar Tassa)
