Saw this explanation for the engine failure:
"Mr Holliday says the original fault to the vessel came from the a "problem from the Turbo blower which helps cool the engine", but crews had to keep using the engine in rough seas on Monday, causing more damage to it."
We`ve had threads recently regarding inadequate ER ventilation,seems it should be taken seriously if losing the blower can disable engine and ship.

40 days and 40 nights. I am sure I read that somewhere. History repeats itself?

This too will pass, stay dry and safe.
