The 72,900 dwt tanker Irma Dulce sank while berthed at the Maua Shipyard in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The vessel had been laid up at the pier when the vessel sustained water ingress in the engine room. The vessel settled by the stern resting in 4 meters of water. The Irma Dulce was later stabilized and flooding was brought under control. Divers were dispatched to inspect the hull for damage. No reports of injuries. Reports state the tanker was 95% completed, but no details if the Irma Dulce was receiving maintenance while laid up.
