On 27 Nov 03, at approximately 1352, the Motor Tanker (M/T) SPECTRUM suffered a power irregularity while transiting mile 201 on the Lower Mississippi River. Watch standers on the bridge and in the engine room noticed a drop in RPM on the main diesel engine. The engine was restarted from the bridge control but the engine again slowed to a stop. The engine was then restarted from the engine room with the same results. The engine was changed over to manual speed control and operated normally. The M/T SPECTRUM proceeded to the Petro United dock at mile 203.9 of the Lower Mississippi River without incident. After mooring at the dock the M/T SPECTRUM's classification society, Lloyds, came on board to inspect the vessel. The class survey identified a failed bearing in the governor had caused the engine to lose power. The bearing was replaced and new gears fitted on the governor. The engine was tested in all modes while at berth and found to be operating satisfactorily. No pollution, damage or injuries resulted from this incident.
