The 243 meter long, 108760 dwt tanker Sea Bay became disabled and ran aground off Zeebrugge, Belgium. The Sea Bay was en route to Antwerp when it suffered engine failure and power blackout. The tanker went adrift and grounded on a sandbank some eight kilometers offshore. Unable to refloat itself, the Sea Bay requested assistance. Four tugs were dispatched and refloated the tanker on the following high tide. The tugs towed the Sea Bay to Ostend before proceeding to Zeebrugge for inspection. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
