Petroil Marine tanker runs aground off Canada

Bunkering tanker Arca 1, operated by Mexican company Petroil Marine, has run aground near Little Pond, Canada while enroute to Sydney in Nova Scotia on Sunday Morning.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans of Canada said the 1963-built vessel lost power due to engine failure and a storm pushed the vessel to the shore.

All six crew onboard were rescued and no pollution from the vessel has been reported.

Canadian Coast Guard’s environmental response group has taken over operations to try and mitigate any risk of pollution to the environment.
