* It is reported that OZSOY experienced engine failure off Magnalia, Romania on 24 June 2020.

* With the assistance of a tug, the vessel was towed to Istanbul Anchorage, Turkey where a damage survey was undertaken. It is reported the main engine crank unit was found damaged which will require repairs at a shipyard.

* Accordingly the vessel has proceeded to Bandirma, Turkey to undertake cargo discharge operations.

* It is possible that General Average / Salvage and associated recovery issues may arise as a result of this casualty.

* If General Average is declared, General Average security may be required from all Cargo Interests prior to the delivery of their cargo and we are likely to be able to assist.

* Salvage Security may also be demanded from a source in the UK and W K Webster may also be able to assist with the provision of security. Security provided by WKW is acceptable to the Council of Lloyds and widely preferred by professional Salvors.

* 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.
