received this pic’s from my father whom is working offshore on gas-production platforms on the North Sea. He on his turn received them from a colleague who is also working offshore. You can see in four steps the sinking off the Mighty Servant 3, 1 mile offshore by the Angolan coast! Very dramatic pic’s I think!

I think the machinery room wasn't flooded totally, but it is difficult to save it tight in this situation.

Very sad to see a vessel in this condition, at least nobody was killed though. Below is info from the owners:-

Issued on behalf of Dockwise, owners of the vessel

Earlier this morning, the semi submersible vessel Mighty Servant 3 developed a list and sank after the offloading of the drilling platform ‘Aleutian Key’. The vessel is resting at the sea bottom in approx. 62 meters of water. The drilling platform did not sustain any damage and is underway to its drilling location.

All of the 21 crew of the vessel have been taken of the vessel and are on their way to the Port of Luanda on board of one of the supporting vessels on stand by during the offloading. The 83 crew of the drilling platform were all safely on board of the drilling platform at the moment of the incident.

The vessel is approximately one mile off the North Angolan coast and very close to the entrance of the port of Luanda. Local authorities have been informed and are assisting in the response effort.

The cause of the incident is not known at this time, but is being investigated.

The 27,720 dwt. vessel is Dutch flagged and sails with a combination of Dutch and Filipino crew. Families of the crew members have been informed. Crew members will be repatriated to their home destinations as soon as possible.
