Boxship collision causes 300-tonne bunker spill off Johor

04 Jan 2017 15:26 GMT

APL Denver is said to have suffered damage to one of its bunker tanks.



A collision between the Singapore-registered container vessel Wan Hai 301 and the Gibraltar-flagged boxship APL Denver resulted in a bunker spill on Tuesday night, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has confirmed.

The two vessels are said to have collided off Pasir Gudang Port, Johor, Malaysia, at around 23:50 hours on 3rd January.

According to the MPA, the master of APL Denver reported that one of the ship's bunker tanks sustained damage. Approximately 300 tonnes of fuel are said to have spilled into the sea as a result.

Johor Port Authority (JPA) has deployed four anti-pollution craft on site and an oil boom around the APL Denver to contain the fuel spill.

The MPA said that, as it is the flag state of the Wan Hai 301, it would be investigating the cause of the collision. It added that traffic in the East Johor Straits and Singapore was unaffected by the incident.
