On 19 Jul 2003 at 0705 hrs, the 575 ft., 30,415 GT U.S. flag tankship SEABULK MARINER
experienced a power loss while downbound at MM 104.7 Lower Mississippi River.
No secondary casualties, injuries, or pollution was reported.
The apparent cause of the power loss was a voltage surge
caused by an improperly connected high level
alarm on the incinerator day tank.
The incorrect cabling was repaired by the vessel's crew
and checked by a representative of the manufacturer.
ABS provided a class report attesting to the proper repairs
and testing of the main engine controls.
