On Tuesday 6th January 2009, we dispatched salvage tug AETOS Z, from her Red Sea Salvage station
to the assistance of the BC MINOAN HOPE (GT 35,148, DWT 64,871)
disabled about 50 n.miles NNE of Port Sudan.
The vessel was drifting towards the reefs and was in imminent danger of grounding.
She was promptly towed stern first to clear the reefs.
The vessel then connected up for towage to Ras Sadat anchorage (Egypt)
where she arrived on the 17th January 2009.
