:o You can just imagine the sense of panic on the bridge of the ship  :o
Even worse on the actual bridge.
From the video the traffic over the bridge was fortunately exceptionally light, another 4/5 hours later it could have been a veritable disaster  :-\

It shows the downside of a single engine propulsion system, lose the engine, lose the lot!

Emergency gen will just about keep the lights on, run the control systems, steering hydraulics and charge the start air system for the main plant, not a lot else.

Here's one: it was the Russians trying to potato bomb Kiev for some reason. Showing their usual competence, they were in the wrong country, using the wrong form of transport that broke down, and the potatoes were in one of the bottom containers. :y

According to a previous  member of crew being interviewed the vessel had encountered several mechanical problems in the past,probably well past its serviceable life & poor maintenance wouldn't suprise me in the slightest,hope whoever owns it has decent insurance for all involved , I can see this incident opening up a whole can of worms.

That smacks of a disgruntled former employee rather than anything meaningful.

The ship is registered in Singapore and is owned and operated by Singapore companies and it's been regularly inspected with minimal compliance issues, the most recent one was in New York late last year iirc.
