MSC-flagged containership Malena has suffered an engine failure in front of Canakkale, in the Turkish Dardanelles Strait.
The incident occurred on 10 October at around 11:00am local time.
The 2,503 TEU vessel was heading to Italy from Tekirdağ, Turkey.
The Canakkale Ship Traffic Services Center coordinated rescue efforts with two tugboats.
The ship has been safely anchored in Dark Harbor, Gulf of Erenköy’s midpoint in southern Dardanelles.
MSC just announced tweaks to intra-Asia network with new and upgraded services arriving by November 2022.
