General Cargo Ship ‘Thorco Lineage’ Hard Aground in French Polynesia  :P

June 25, 2018 by gCaptain

The 131-meter general cargo ship Thorco Lineage is hard aground on an atoll in French Polynesia after drifting aground during a voyage across the South Pacific on Saturday.

The Philippines-flagged ship was underway from Baltimore, Maryland in the United States to Hobart, Australia when it experienced engine trouble and drifted aground on the northern end of Raroia Atoll, part of the Tuamotus chain.

No pollution has been reported so far, however, reports indicate the vessel is unlikely to float free without salvage assistance.

Reports also say so far a salvor has not yet been appointed.

The M/V Thorco Lineage is operated by Thorco Projects. The ship was built in 2014 and has a deadweight of 16,949 tonnes.

The ship has a crew of 18 people.

A spokesperson for Thorco Projects provided gCaptain with the following statement:

“We can confirm that Thorco Lineage has drifted aground on the northern outline of Raroia Atoll, French Polynesia, as she was experiencing engine problems. We are in close dialogue with the vessel’s owners and technical managers. Investigations are still ongoing.”
