We have learned of a new incident involving the vessel TIGER CLIFF, a feeder vessel, on a loaded voyage from Kolkata, India to Singapore.

The vessel, laden with cargo destined to 20 destinations, suffered main engine damage on 16th August 2013. She was towed to a place of refuge, in order to avoid the prospect of grounding and a second tug has been engaged to tow her to Singapore.
