M/V Hanjin Aqua Hard Aground in Indonesia

Panamanian-flagged containership M/V Hanjin Aqua went aground off Sangiang Island,  in the Sunda Strait, Indonesia at 19:36 local time, 4th December, Melbourne-based shipping company ANL reports.

The ship is reported to be carrying 2,303 TEU of cargo including hazardous waste from Port Adelaide to Jakarta.

M/V Hanjin Aqua got grounded onto the rocky shallows of the Strait, sustaining damage to its hull and breaching some of its ballast compartments that started taking in water causing the ship to develop a list.

According to the ship’s owner South Korean Hanjin Shipping the salvage operation is underway and there is no danger of pollution.

“It has been reported to us by Hanjin that all cargo and crew are safe and there is no danger of the vessel sinking,” ANL said.

The 2012-built container ship features 62,448 in DWT and is 249 meters long.
