12.03.2018 - MV GLORY HONKONG SUFFERED A DISASTER IN THE GULF OF FINLAND
M/V Glory Hongkong, which suffered a disaster in the Gulf of Finland on March 8, was delivered for repair to the port of Tallinn.
The vessel of the Estonian border guard Kindral Kurvits, Finnish vessels Tursas and Halli came to the aid of a dry cargo ship heading for Saint Petersburg under the Panamanian flag, Interfax reports.
As previously reported referring to the Finnish Coast Guard, a signal about a leak in the engine room of a 180 metre dry-cargo ship arrived from the area of the island of Hogland at 12:41 on Finnish time on March 8.
The preparation of the rescue operation took some time, as the shipowner had to conclude an agreement with a commercial company.
