A strong storm on Tuesday battered a cargo ship in Tripoli rendering its anchors redundant until the ship was pushed into Tripoli Port breakwater. The container ship arrived at Tripoli anchorage from Piraeus.

Libyan sources reported that the Container ship,  MSF LADY HALOUM subsequently dragged and its crew couldn’t respond in time to avoid grounding.

“As of 0800 UTC Oct 28, the ship was still sitting on breakwater, with Italian offshore tug ASSO VENTINOVE (IMO 9379428) trying to refloat her”, highlighted Fleetmon, noting that the damage was yet unknown.
