Amver Ship Racing To Assit Vessel Adrift Off Alalska

Yesterday the 738 foot bulker APJ Suryavir reported to United States Coast Guard rescue authorities they had lost all power and were adrift in rough weather approximately 540 miles southwest of Adak, Alaska. Search and rescue personnel immediately launched a Coast Guard C-130 aircraft and diverted the Amver ship Maersk Altair.

While the master and crew of the APJ Suryavir prepared to abandon ship it appears, according to communications from the ship, that the engines have been restarted and the vessel is under its own power.

We will keep you updated.
