LPG Tanker Hit Hard in Collision with Boxship off Surabaya

The LPG tanker Navigator Aries collided with a container ship Leo Perdana on the night of June 29 near the island of Karang Dzhamuang, 20 miles north of Surabaya, Indonesia, according to the local media.

The collision caused a fire on the 2008-built tanker, which was quickly put out. The 23,333 dwt tanker suffered a 5-meter breach on its port side.

Local maritime authorities sent four tugboats to assist the stricken vessels. The tanker was initially anchored some 10 nautical miles north of Gresik.

The extent of the damage on the 2,553 TEU Leo Perdana is unknown. The 2007-built boxship is currently docked at Surabaya port, where it sailed under its own power.

The Indonesia-flagged Navigator Aries is managed by the UK-based Navigator Gas LLC.

The Panama-flagged Leo Perdana is operated by Taiwan’s Evergreen Marine Corporation, and is employed on a Taiwan-Philippines-Indonesia (TPI) Service, which includes a call at Surabaya.
