Disabled bulk carrier Omegas still drifting in Indian ocean?
Bulk carrier Omegas suffered propeller shaft damage while en route from Argentina to Vietnam with cargo of soya beans. Reportedly vessel was disabled in Indian ocean near Malacca Strait entrance on July 31 or earlier. It is said that LOF is signed, vessel is to be towed, destination of towage unknown. At noon Aug 6 Omegas was in position 03 58N 092 58E, speed 2.5 knots, meaning vessel may be under tow or still adrift. Position seems to be strange, maybe vessel is still drifting, awaiting tug. There’s no port to be towed to in this area.
