The 1982 built 18,771 dwt acid tanker Asdrubal grounded
at Km 150 in the Suez Canal in northbound transit on 12 September.
The cause of the grounding owes to the failure of the vessel's steering gear.
It was refloated within an hour by SCA tugs.
The convoy did stop for a brief while
but overall there was no effect on the exiting times.
