TOKYO, December 27 (Itar-Tass) — Japan’s coast guard has sent a rescue group to Russia’s Alanet trawler that is suffering distress in the Pacific Ocean near Cape Erimo in Japan’s Hokkaido, the main department of the Japan Coast Guard told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
A group of rescuers is expected to reach the area of distress at 18:00 local time (13:00 Moscow time).
“The ship’s main engine failed, the crew is trying to start it,” Captain Alexander Kuvshinov from the seaport of Vladivostok reported earlier in the day.
The weather in the area is stormy, with four-meter-high waves and wind gusts of 15-18 meters per second.
The Alanet is owned by the Kamchatka-based company Kamchatrybprom. It has a crew of 24.
