Salvors Tow MV Hansa Brandenburg to Port of Refuge

Ship management Company Leonhardt & Blumberg reported that the container vessel MV “HANSA BRANDENBURG” is currently being towed to Mauritius after salvors have successfully been able to make a towing connection during the weekend.

A final decision on the port of refuge yet has to be made. Upon arrival a further assessment of damage to the vessel will follow.

Experts of Five Oceans Salvage LTD & SMIT Salvage BV extinguished the fire on “HANSA BRANDENBURG” last Friday after the ship suffered from a fire when transiting from Singapore to Durban on July 15. All crew of the vessel were safely rescued by the attending container vessel “DONAU TRADER” and are unharmed.

MV “HANSA BRANDENBURG”, Gross Tonnage 18334, is a 2003 built container vessel with a capacity of 1.740 TEU. She is flying the Liberian flag.
