PACCShip participating Amver ship saves 34

The combined efforts of a PACCShip managed Amver ship and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority led to the rescue of 34 people from a disabled vessel north of Cocos Island on October 11, 2012

According to a report from the Australian Minister for Home Affairs, the distress vessel was located by a Royal Australian Air Force maritime patrol aircraft supporting RCC Australia.

Rescue authorities diverted the M/V Glorious Sentosa which safely embarked the 34 survivors and transferred them to Australian officials on Christmas Island.

The Panamanian flagged bulk carrier enrolled in the Amver system on May 31, 2010 and earned two Amver awards for participation.
