Hema 1


Thomas Stevns was costal cargo freighter laid down by Husumer Schiffswerft GmbH & Co. KG, and was launched in 1963 for the Danish company Stevns Charter & Towage AS who used her in trade in the Baltic Sea. In 1974 she was sold to new owners in Port of Spain in Trinidad and renamed Hema 1. Under a journey from Grenada to Trinidad in ballast she developed a leak 5. March 2005. The crew tried to steer her back to St. George but was force to send out a distress call and abandon ship. She soon after disappeared in the deep and the crew was picked up by the coast guard.  The battered remains of her rest today on a depth of 30 meter about 2,5 nautical miles south of Grenada.
