November 30th 2015: “Suffered a fire in the engine room in the Black Sea, 50 miles east of Emine. The vessel, which was en route from Constanta to Tuzla, lost power after one of the generators inflamed and fire extended to the whole machinery. The crew succeeded to start the CO2 firefighting system and completely extinguished the fire. After the fire was completely extinguished and compartment was ventilated, the ship could not proceed with own power due to damage to the diesel generator. A tug of a salvage company from Burgas towed the “Nazim Bey” to an anchorage in the Bosphorus at the Buyukdere area where she was repaired before resuming the voyage to Tuzla.”.

October 5th 2019: “While en route from Tuzla to Novorossiysk in ballast condition, suffered an engine failure off Sile. As repairs could not be completed by the crew, the tug ‘Yumurtalik‘ was appointed in order to tow the vessel to the Tuzla shipyard area. The towage commenced on Oct 6. During the transit pf the Istanbul strait, a Coastal Safety tug provided escort service for the vessel and strait traffic safety. On Oct 7 the ship berthed in Tuzla.
