I. INCIDENT BRIEF
On December 18, 2008, the T/S PANAGIA LADY
was underway in the Arthur Kill outbound for sea.
Shortly after getting underway the vessel
Engineers were paralleling the number 1 and 2 generators,
the load was uneven and the main breaker panel tripped
blacking out all electrical services on the ship.
The number 3 generator was brought on-line and power was restored.
The main diesel engine shutdown was due to a reduction in the supply of fuel oil
to the main diesel engine, which was caused by the power loss.
The engine was restarted and the vessel transited
to anchorage as directed by the Coast Guard.
The vessel safely anchored without further incident.
