Just checked the progress of the celebrated Sanko Mineral which left for Falmouth yesterday, presumably for refuelling.
She currently lies at the outer limits of Falmouth Bay at anchor. Virtually alongside is the UK flagged tanker Whitchampion which appears to have rendezvoused with the Sanko Mineral.
The bunkering (refuelling) procedures are complex and potentially hazardous with multiple checklists and precautions to be adhered to by both vessels.
Monitoring the situation closely.
