Engine trouble in English Channel
The "Elbcarrier" , en route from Dublin to Rotterdam, was reported as not under command while carrying out engine maintenance in position 50 19 N, 000 42 W, on July 18, 2018, at 5.15 p.m. The crew stated it would take one hour to repair the vessel. The ship was carrying 3265 tonnes of containers and finally arrived in the Prins Willem Alexander Port of Rotterdam on July 19 at 8 a.m.
Law enforcement officials on Aug 23, 2010, were searching the "Elbcarrier" at Port Everglades for a group of stowaways. The Community Border Patrol and law enforcement officers wre combing the ship after it arrived from Honduras. Agents from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection along with Broward Sheriff's deputies and the Coast Guard personnel were involved in the search. They believed the stowaways were still on the ship. Suspicions were raised around 5 a.m. when a harbor pilot, who was guiding the ship into the port, noticed individuals on the ship who were not wearing the orange jumpsuits usually worn by the crew. When the men saw they the pilot was look at them, they ran. Initially during the search, the stevedores were not allowed to off load containers. Around 8 p.m. they were given permission to begin work, border patrol agents thinking it would make it easier to find the stowaways by giving them fewer places to hide. A perimeter has been set up around the area where the ship is docked.News schreiben
