Maersk mega container ship under tow to Algeciras
Container ship MAERSK ELBA was taken on tow by offshore tug ALP DEFENDER in the afternoon Dec 29, to be towed to Algeciras, Gibraltar, for repairs. Damages inflicted by fire in engine room on Dec 26 couldn’t be repaired by crew means, to guarantee her sailing under own power and continue voyage to Felixstowe UK. So finally, it was decided to tow her to Algeciras to carry out shipyard repair works. ETA Algeciras Dec 31.
