Cracks in one more Polaris bulkcarrier

19 May 2017 - 12:00 - Update: 19 May 2017 - 15:06


Cracks were found on another Polaris VLOC, the "Solar Ember", on May 5, 2017, when the vessel was in the South Atlantic, en route from Brazil to China with a cargo of ore. The cracks were of about 2,5 centimeters size. On May 18, the bulkcarrier was in the Indian Ocean, south of Diego Garcia, under way to Qingdao, ETA June 6. Some temporary measures were taken to prevent the cracks from increasing or leaking water. The vessel’s condition was to be thoroughly checked after offloading 170.000 tons of ore in China.
