The Maersk-chartered container ship that apparently “lost propulsion” in Tuesday’s allision with a bridge in Baltimore had been cited for a propulsion deficiency in Chile last June, according to the Equasis database.

The 9,962-teu Dali (built 2015) was written up by port state control officials in San Antonio, Chile, on 27 June for a deficiency in “propulsion and auxiliary machinery”, the database indicates.
