Two Anchored Boxships in Minor Collision off Singapore

The Panama-registered containership Hanjin New York came into contact with the Liberia-registered boxship MSC Claudia while both ships were anchored off Singapore on September 30, according to a Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) spokesperson.

Namely, at about 6 pm local time, Hanjin New York dragged anchor and contacted the bow of the 1989-built MSC Claudia.

Both vessels sustained minor indentations and were re-anchored safely after the incident, MPA spokesperson said.

Ten 40-foot length empty containers fell from Hanjin New York onto MSC Claudia’s bow and one 40-foot empty container fell into the sea.

The container that fell into the sea was retrieved and arrangements were underway to remove the 10 containers from MSC Claudia.

At the time of the incident both containerships were anchored at Eastern Bunkering “A” waiting for their respective berths.

MPA said that there were no reports of injuries or oil pollution following the incident, which is currently under investigation.
