Mol Comfort Update
The MRCC in Mumbai has reported that the sections of the Mol Comfort remain afloat. Around noon JST on Tuesday, June 18 (07:00 local time), the fore part of the hull is drifting around 13’00″N 60’40″E, and the aft part is about 19 miles southwest from that point. At present, both parts of the ship are laden with containers and drifting in an east-northeast direction. The sections are being monitored by the Sanderling Ace, another vessel managed by MOL. The company is also arranging tugboats to tow both sections.
