Chinese cable laying ship operating in Kerch Strait breaks down

Chinese cable laying ship, Jiangong 1, which has been laying a so-called ”energy bridge” from Russia`s Kuban to the occupied Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea, has broken down, according to Kerch.FM.
”One of the auxiliary engines of the vessel is down. Now the cable laying vessel needs to be towed,” a report reads.
It is noted the ship cannot be sent for repair due to pressing deadlines. Therefore, it was decided to continue the operations of the Chinese cable laying vessel supported with a tug to replace the broken engine.
The agency reports that the laying of the third branch of the energy bridge across the Kerch Strait has been started. The construction is scheduled to have been completed by the end of next month.
Kerch has suffered from power outage for two days due to the energy bridge construction work.
However, as of now, the construction of the energy bridge across the Kerch Strait has been suspended, as reported.
