Thorco Lineage captain sentenced

The captain onboard the Danish driven freight ship Thorco Lineage, which went aground in French Polynesia earlier this year in June after experiencing engine fail, has been given a one year suspended sentence for failure of informing local authorities about the engine fail and that the ship subsequently went aground.

The captain, whos name is not known to the public, explained through his lawyer that he chose to only inform the shipping company about the situation, because he believed that the situation was under control.

Thorco Lineage, which has deadweight of 16.949 DWT and is 132 meters long, was heading from Baltimore in the US to Hobart, Australia when the accident took place. The ships freight consisted of zinc powder.

It took three days before it was possible to pull the ship free from seabed.

The bunker company Trans-Sec subsequently sued another bunker company Bomin Bunker Oil, for allegedly having delivered bad bunkers to Thorco Lineage in Panama.

The ships engine failed 24 hours after having used all fuel which is why it subsequently went aground.
