Date 13 June 2020
Year of Build 2020
Casualty type Machinery Failure
Vessel Type Bulk - VT BBU

* Whilst the PHOENIX OCEAN was transiting the Parana River loaded with a cargo of grain, its rudder blade reportedly struck the river bed twisting it by approximately 17 degrees. As a result the vessel proceeded to anchorage off Montevideo Port on June 13th 2020.

* Attempts to repair the rudder by the crew at the anchorage were not successful and the vessel will proceed with tug assistance to Montevideo Port for repairs.

* This matter would appear to give rise to General Average and Recovery issues may also arise in the event of cargo deterioration by reason of the delay.

* Should you insure or be concerned with this cargo, please let us know so that we take immediate steps to protect your interests.
