Filipino Chief Engineer of bulk carrier NORD SUNDA dies

 

Chief Engineer of bulk carrier NORD SUNDA, 49-year old Filipino national, passed away on July 16, 2021, in hospital in Le Havre, presumably because of covid 19, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “ 5 other crew who were hospitalized, recovered and will be repatriated to Manila on Jul 18. 6 other crew who were positively tested, have been repatriated to Manila on Jul 13.

“NORD SUNDA had to call Le Havre France on Jun 30, being in a medical emergency. The ship was en route from Buchanan Liberia to Dunkirk France with a cargo of iron ore. 16 crew tested positive, 5 of them in need of hospitalization.

“Bulk carrier was diverted to Le Havre, where she berthed at around noon Jun 30. The ship reached Dunkirk on Jul 11, left on Jul 14, bound for Ust Luga, Russia, Baltic sea. As of 0530 UTC Jul 18, she was adrift in Baltic off Estonia since around 0100 UTC, reason unknown, probably waiting. Or as probably, one vaccinated crew was replaced with another, also vaccinated, crew.”
