On Friday 29th December, 2023 the Armed Forces of Malta (AFM) responded to a medical evacuation (medevac) call with the Aframax crude oil tanker EAGLE BRISBANE.
The Vittoria Class SAR Boat MELITA I was dispatched to the tanker around 3 miles north east off Grand Harbour, since she was in ballast condition and around 0935 hrs she was alongside the South Korean built tanker.
EAGLE BRISBANE was built by Samsung Heavy Industries at Geoje in South Korea in 2018 and homeported at Singapore with SGP flag. Around 20 mins later she completed her operation with MELITA I returning to base of which an ambulance arrived at the time of mooring.
On completion the tanker proceeded to her next port of call in Libya –
