Taking in water Laden tanker at risk of sinking off Mombasa
THE tanker Voge Trust, laden with 20,000 tonnes of crude oil, listed in the Likoni channel near Mombasa, Kenya, yesterday, reportedly after developing mechanical problems, writes David Osler. A report from the local Lloyd’s Agent suggests that the ship has taken in water after sustaining hull damage and could be at risk of sinking. The 2009-built, 38,341 dwt Liberia-flag vessel is associated with Germany’s H. Vogemann. AP
