Earlier, on September 17, a trawler numbered QNg 96509 TS experienced engine failure while fishing in the waters of Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago.

The distressed trawler docks in Sinh Ton Island.

Although all crew-members on the trawler tried to fix it, they did not succeed. After hours drifting at sea, the trawler’s captain contacted the center to ask for help.

On September 18, the troubled trawler docked at Sinh Ton Island safely. The center’s technicians checked the trawler and found that the broken bolts might lead to main engine failure and other damages.

Four days later, the fault was fixed and the trawler was able to depart the island to continue its fishing as scheduled.
