Within about 50 minutes, the repairs were completed and the vessel resumed its voyage with an ETA as of April 19.
Cargo ship disabled on the Scheldt
On Oct 29 around 6 p.m. the "Brilliante" encountered engine trouble on the river Scheldt in the neighbourhood of Walsoorden being bound from Antwerp to Dunkirk. The trouble occurred short after having left the Boudewijn Lock in Antwerp near buoy 55. After about an hour the tugs "Union Eagle", "Union Panda" and "Fairplay XIV" arrived from Antwerp. The tugs towed the vessel to an anchorage at Terneuzen for inspections. The tug "Evergem" was additional on stand-by alongside the disabled ship. After the ship was at anchor from 10 p.m. until 4.45 p.m. on Oct 30, it entered the lock harbour of the Scheldt in Flusing at 6 p.m. and remained there since.
