Tanker with 102,000 tonnes of fuel adrift off Mauritius

Oil tanker Ocean Pride 1, with 102,000 tonnes of fuel oil on board, is reportedly adrift off coast Mauritius.

It reportedly encountered engine issues on Sep 2 on arrival at Port Louis anchorage, Mauritius, from Caribbean.

But the tanker was banned from entering Port Louis on the grounds of expired safety certificate.

Since Sep 2, Ocean Pride 1 drifted west of Mauritius, waiting for spare parts.

Once completed, Ocean Pride 1 could enter Port Louis on the approval of Mauritian authorities.
