Pusher Tug Virgo sinks
« on: July 09, 2008, 07:13:53 PM »
Pusher tug Virgo sank last night while pushing an empty barge from the New Waterway to Calandcanal (Europoort).
Two out of three crew members managed to climb on the barge, the third (captain) managed to inform the authorities before he left the ship. He was rescued by the SAR. The tug sunk partly, because she is connected by steel cables.

Virgo 1

Virgo 2 (& barge)

If you have any info on Virgo please let me know.

Sad to read the history. Let's hope she will be refitted.
