The RAVA tanker, which stopped traffic on the Bosphorus Strait, was towed to the anchorage, the main directorate of the Turkish Coast Guard reported.
The tanker is “towed to the anchorage accompanied by two tugs.” The administration of Istanbul reported that “as a result of the incident with the tanker, there were no injuries, no environmental damage, and no material losses,” Free News reports.
A representative of the General Directorate of Coastal Security of Turkey said that “the movement of ships through the Bosphorus has been restored after the completion of all necessary work.” Recall that in Istanbul, traffic was stopped along the Bosphorus Strait due to the breakdown of a tanker that lost control. In addition, on May 28, it was reported that the container ship Maersk Emerald ran aground in the Suez Canal. It was towed away. In March, the Suez Canal was blocked for five days by the container ship Ever Give.
