* It is reported that bulk carrier, SANTORINI, experienced an engine failure and loss of power and was unable to maintain its course whilst navigating the Istanbul Strait, Turkey on 14 October 2020.

* The vessel subsequently drifted to shore at Kanlica Point, Istanbul Strait.

* Turkish Authorities have rendered salvage services and subsequently the vessel has been brought to a Bosphorus anchorage where she remains.

* Accordingly it is very likely that salvage security will be required to be provided in Turkey. General Average may also be declared by the vessel owners requiring General Average security to be provided. WKW may be able to assist in this regard.

* We therefore recommend that you contact us urgently if you are concerned with any cargo on board this vessel so that we can immediately start taking steps to protect your interests.
