While underway the tanker vessel experienced a total loss of propulsion,
due to a loss of power.
The Chief Engineer
inspected the diesel generator
and found that the over speed trip was in the operating position.
According to the Chief Engineer
this would be the likely cause
of having a worn out snap switch gear on the diesel engine
and that would cause a loss of power,
and thus have no power to the vessels' engines.
The crew was able to restore power and make it to their
Their were no injuries and no other damage.
