The 164 meter long, 10454 dwt ro-ro car carrier Modern Express was successfully towed to Bilbao, Spain. The car carrier had been adrift since January 26 after it suffered a cargo shift while in the Bay of Biscay en route to Le Havre, France. The Dutch salvage company Smit was later able to connect a towline on February 1st while the car carrier was off the coast of Mimizan, France. The tugs slowly towed the listing Modern Express to Bilboa where it safely docked. Investigators will board the vessel to inspect the cargo decks .
