Hunter salvages Cementina 3/11/06

Tugboat Hunter has safely delivered the cement tanker Cementina
in the Harlingen harbor in co-operation with Svitzerwijsmuller.
The Cementina ran into rudder troubles North of Schiermonnikoog
and was abandoned by it’s crew. Eventually the vessel grounded east
of Schiermonnikoog on Simonzand. The Tempest boarded a salvaging crew
of Svitzerwijsmuller and shipping-company Noordgat for inspection.
Friday morning the Hunter was able to tow the Cementina away from the
sand banks after which it set course for Harlingen,
where at approximately 18:00 hours it was safely returned to it’s owners.
