On June 5, 2017, a vessel reportedly suffered an engine failure in the Bosphorous Strait and went adrift.
The “Andre Michel 1” suffered engine failure in the morning of June 5, shortly after passing the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge in the northern Bosphorus, and went adrift.
The ship was en route from Kherson to Sfax when the engine broke down. It was taken in tow and safely pulled to Buyukdere Anchorage with the help of the tug “Kurtarma 3” where it was still remaining moored off Çayırbaşı as of now.
