Bulk Carrier in Distress Off Newfoundland

Bulk Carrier in Distress Off Newfoundland
The Canadian Coast Guard responded to a vessel in distress off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador on Thursday following a report that it was taking on water and losing power.

The Coast Guard said it received a distress call from the Panama-flagged M/V Centennial Harmony reporting that it was in need of assistance approximately 90 nautical miles from the Hibernia offshore oil platform off the coast of St. John’s.

The Coast Guard tasked the CCGS Grenfell while the JRCC sent vessels and assets to assistance. By the time rescue crews arrived, the crew of the Centennial Harmony notified that they were no longer in need of assistance after power to the vessel was restored and the situation stabilized. The Coast Guard said the incident posed no risks to the Hibernia platform.

AIS ship tracking data indicates the vessel is sailing from Canada to the UK. Earlier this week, the U.S. National Weather Service was forecasting that a hurricane force storm was expected to move eastward across the west-central North Atlantic with storm to hurricane force winds and significant wave heights building up to an astounding 19 meters (over 60 feet).
