Maersk Brooklyn Suffers Engine Failure in English Channel

Maersk Line’s container ship Maersk Brooklyn experienced engine malfunction in the English Channel yesterday while en route from Belgium to Malta, the company’s Senior Press Officer Michael Christian Storgaard confirmed to World Maritime News.

The 2007-built, 4196 TEU boxship is currently anchored at a ”safe position,” some eleven nautical miles ENE off Greenwich Bouy, Storgaard said.

A tug is standing by to assist the stricken vessel, but there was no need for towage as of yet.

Storgaard said that the mechanical issues are minor and are currently being addressed.

The boxship is expected to resume its voyage to the Port of Marsaxlokk once the necessary repairs are made.
