Tanker suspected to have cut undersea cable off Bornholm
The 'Samus Swan', sailing for the Danish shipping company Uni-Tankers, was suspected to have switched off all lights on Bornholm early in the morning of Feb 26, 2022, en route from Ventspils to Rotterdam. It was found out that the vessel was in the area at that time by comparing data on the ship's movements based on AIS signals, with the cabling across the seabed and the time of the power outage. The information pointed in the direction that it was the Danish-powered tanker which tore the power cable to pieces, so that the power went out on Bornholm. The investigations were going on.
Three crew members released from hospital, tanker being sanitized
In the night of July 12 three crew members of the 'Samus Swan' have been released from hospital, after being tested negative for Covid-19 twice. The seafarers have been taken to a hotel awaiting their swift repatriation to their home countries, together with their six fellow crew members who were not infected and had remained in quarantine on the vessel. A relief crew of the 'Samus Swan' has meanwhile arrived in Algecirs for a scheduled crew change. A specialised company has started the sanitising of the tanker in the port. The authorities have given permission for the vessel to proceed on its voyage once the cleaning has finished. After completing minor, planned maintenance, Uni-Tankers expected the ship to depart in the first part of the new week.
Seven crew members infected with COVID-19
Seven of the nine crew members of the 'Samus Swan' were found to be infected by the new coronavirus during a rapid test at Algeciras. The tanker and its crew were isolated with the crew remaining on board. All of them were reported to be in good physical condition. The tanker had arrived at Algeciras on July 6 from Escravos. Initially it was bound for Gibraltar, but had to stop at Algeciras for the virus test.News schreiben
