An Oldendorff Carriers bulker is being repaired after suffering engine failure in Singapore.

The company told TradeWinds that work on the 209,000-dwt Helena Oldendorff (built 2016) is expected to be completed soon.

Pressure group Environmental Protection Alliance (EPA) had earlier claimed the scrubber system failed and flooded the engine.

Oldendorff did not confirm this but said: "As scrubbers are not required until January 1, 2020, a scrubber failure now would not delay the vessel.
