On 26 April, 2002 the T/V Asphalt Commander temporarily lost power while transitting through the Gulf Of Mexico. The pressure sensing line for the jacket water cooling system on the #1 Ship Service Generator developed a leak. This caused the generator is shut down which caused the main engines to temporarily shut down. The emergency generator came on line and the main engines were restarted. The broken sensor line was replaced with a spare and the #1 generator was placed back on line.
