Product tanker saved refugees
TORM Lotte, a product tanker owned by Danish shipowner TORM A/S, has assisted Italian and Maltese authorities in a rescue operation to save a large group of boat refugees in the Mediterranean Sea.
TORM Lotte, sailing under DIS flag, was bound for La Skhira when the vessel on 18 July at 1245 hrs CET received an urgent distress call from the Italian coast guard requesting assistance to a ship carrying refugees.
 
After receiving the call, the vessel proceeded immediately for the rescue operation to render assistance.
At 1700hrs, TORM Lotte gained visual contact with the refugee ship and proceeded closer to observe the situation, which was followed by launching of  its Man Overboard Boat (MOB) in order to rescue the refugees who jumped into the water, the company explained in a release.
 
During the rescue operation, TORM Lotte rescued up to 300 refugees.
