Shipmanagement Company Leonhardt & Blumberg reported yesterday that they have appointed Five Oceans Salvage LTD & SMIT Salvage BV for the salvaging of her container vessel Hansa Brandenburg which is suffering from a fire on board and is drifting some 200 nautical miles northeast of Mauritius.

The tug Coral Sea Flos is currently on its way to the vessel. The Mauritian Coast Guard is monitoring the situation.

Crew of “Hansa Brandenburg” initially tried to extinguish the fire on the vessel. However as the fire spread crew eventually had to be safely rescued by the attending ship “Donau Trader”.

“The exact cause of the incident is yet unknown. A full investigation will be conducted,” the company said in a press release.
