A tugboat arrived to help the Russian dry cargo ship "Simushir"

The large tugboat Barbara Foss arrived on Saturday to help the Russian dry-cargo ship Simushir, which was out of power off the western coast of Canada. The Canadian Press news agency reported.

“When the vessel is taken in tow, they will first head north-west and move away from the coastline, and then to more protected waters north of Hyde-Guai island,” said a spokesman for the Canadian Forces Joint Rescue Coordination Center. . Subsequently, it will be decided where to go next. According to the center, there are 10 crew members aboard the ship, and there is no danger to them.

Prior to that, Simushir temporarily towed a Canadian Coast Guard ship, but the cable broke, and the ship again drifted in the open ocean. The team tried to restore his move.

The cargo ship en route to Russia from the American port of Everett in Washington State lost its course during a storm on the night from Thursday to Friday. According to the Canadian military, there was a danger that the ship would crash on the shore, and the fuel on it would spill into the sea. The vessel is owned by Sakhalin Shipping Company.
