Rotterdam (Svitzer)

The ROTTERDAM after handing over floating dock ASABA GE entering the port of Cape Town. The floating dock ASABA GE left China under tow of the Svitzer tug ROTTERDAM enroute to Equatorial Guinea. As a result of bad weather off the Mozambiquen coast, part of the dock stern section sheered off and beached. The ROTTERDAM continued her voyage whilst Svitzer Salvage are on side to try to salvage stern section. The tug and tow entered Cape Town and the ROTTERDAM handed the tow over to the harbour tugs.
