Turkish freighter disabled dangerously close to Corsica

General cargo ship BURHAN DIZMAN 3 was disabled after propulsion failure and started to drift at around 0515 UTC Jan 16 in close vicinity of Corsica southwest coast, towards coast, in stormy weather conditions. According to AIS track, the ship managed to regain propulsion and started to move to the sea from dangerously close coast, at a reduced speed of some 3.5 – 4.0 knots, escorted by French SAR ship ABEILLE FLANDRE. Team of technical specialists understood to board the ship from helicopter. BURHAN DIZMAN 3 left Fos France in the afternoon Jan 15, bound for Gemlik Turkey. Probably she’ll be taken to nearest port for proper repairs and survey. Photo of troubled BURHAN DIZMAN 3 from MRCC France.
