Excellence to the rescue

Our crew can be counted on to take up the toughest assignments. In January 2015, the Excellence crew performed a contingency Ship-To-Ship (STS) transfer of LNG from Magellan Spirit when it was temporarily aground off the coast of Nigeria. The Danish-flagged 165,000-cubicmetre-capacity LNG tanker ran aground on a mud bank shortly after departing Bonny Island LNG Terminal laden with cargo. Both crew and vessel were intact without injuries or major damage. As initial attempts to pull the vessel free using tugs proved unsuccessful, it was decided to lighten the vessel by removing part of the cargo by STS transfer. Excellence was in ballast and requested to change course.

Once in Bonny the crew prepared and awaited favourable tides before manoeuvring into position alongside Magellan Spirit and commencing cargo transfer. After completing the transfer Excellence cast off to Lomé. Magellan Spirit was successfully re‑floated and anchored for inspection. Once the all-clear was given for her to proceed, the she joined the Excellence in Lomé and backloaded her cargo.
