Ship traffic in Bosphorus Strait (Turkey) is all set to resume for the northbound vessels as of 0820 GMT on Wednesday, following a suspension owing to an engine glitch on one vessel, per the Tribeca shipping agency.
Per a report from the agency, a Liberia-flagged tanker named Guanyin loaded with vacuum gasoil and diesel fuel experienced an engine failure at the northern entrance of the strait and two tugs were also dispatched for further assistance.
