Mineral Energy escorts M/V Seefuchs (with 119 refugees on board) towards Sicilian shore.

On the 8th June 2018, our M/V Mineral Energy was contacted by Malta Rescue Coordination Center to assist a vessel in distress: M/V Seefuchs. The Seefuchs had 119 refugees on board, rescued from a sinking dinghy two days earlier.

The state of the sea didn't allow transfer of the refugees to the much larger Mineral Energy, but our vessel was requested to escort and provide sufficient leeway for the Seefuchs. Six hours later the Seefuchs was able to safely land the 119 refugees at the Port Pozzallo (Sicily) and the Mineral Energy could resume it's voyage to Hadera.
