VLCC Long Hu San disabled during sea trials

VLCC Long Hu San issued distress signal on Aug 2 13, being some 60 nautical miles east off Yangtze estuary, East China Sea, presumably during sea trials. Two rescue vessels, East China Sea Rescue 101 and East China Sea Rescue 111, towed vessel to Shanghai Changxing Shipyard. Towage was hampered by strong wind and other negative factors, including depth restrictions, a lot of fishing nets around, and big wind area, because super tanker was in ballast.  Vessel was docked in shipyard in the evening Aug 4.
