The Liberian-flagged Car Carrier, LAKE SUPERIOR collided with the French trawler Talariante during the early morning hours of June the 27th, while transiting off the coast of Roscoff, France.

The incident occurred at approximately 00:25 am LT on Thursday morning, some 50 nautical miles north of Roscoff. The French trawler, Melizenn notified the Regional Operational Monitoring and Rescue Center, CROSS Corsen that a collision had occurred between the two vessels.

Thankfully no injuries or pollution were reported as a result of the collision.

We don’t currently have information on the extent of the damages on the two ships.

The Talariante is currently being escorted by two vessels, the fishing trawler TARANIS and the French National Society for Sea Rescue ship, Zant Ivy. The convoy is expected to arrive at the port of Saint-Malo by the afternoon of June the 27th.

The Lake Superior, which was originally headed for the Port of Conakry, Guinea is now moving to Camaret Anchorage, France and is expected to have arrived there by noon. Probably to assess damages and undergo an investigation as to the collision and the events that transpired prior to the incident.
