General cargo ship KARL JAKOB K suffered engine failure caused by fuel pump (thanks to, most probably, IMO 2020 Sulphur Cap), while leaving port of La Coruna, Spain, in the afternoon Apr 13. The ship had to anchor in emergency, understood later she was taken to port’ anchorage. The ship resumed voyage in the evening same day, after fixing the problem.
Accident caused by engine failures due to low sulphur fuels mess, have become a pandemic, adding up to woes shipping suffers from “deadly corona pandemic” insanity.
