Tsavliris Salvages Immobilized Cargo Vessel
On September 17, Tsavliris dispatched salvage tug Uranus, from Las Palmas, to the assistance of general cargo vessel Hagen (11,927 GRT, 16,825 DWT), laden with about 14,500 MT of Peruvian steam dried fishmeal in bulk, immobilized due to machinery problems about 700 nautical miles Southwest of Azores Island.
Salvage tug Uranus arrived at the casualty's location in the evening of September 21 in adverse weather conditions. At daybreak of September 22 towline was connected and commenced towage.
Convoy arrived safely off Cascais on September 30 where the Uranus delivered the vessel to two port tugs contracted by the salvor. Hagen was safely towed to Lisbon and the same day berthed at TPR Terminal.
