On 4 September 2004 the 1997 built chemical/products tanker "CAPE BANKS" (33,540 deadweight) constructed with 14 tanks grounded in the approaches to Mersin port on no less than three separate occasions. "CAPE BANKS" was contracted to deliver to Mersin five parcels of 28,862mt of gas oil. The casualty was refloated twice with the assistance of local tugs. However, after the third grounding, it was necessary for a lightening tanker to be chartered. The "ADRASAN C" received about 7,800mt of oil before "CAPE BANKS" was refloated by tugs and delivered to her discharge berth.
