Diana Shipping’s Vessel Grounds off Indonesia

The 76,436 dwt dry bulk vessel Melite has run aground off the coast of Pulau Laut, Indonesia, according to data provided by the ship’s owner, Athens-based shipping firm Diana Shipping.

The company informed that the crew is in no danger as a result of this incident and there has been no pollution.

Although the situation is still under assessment, Diana Shipping said that it appears that the vessel has suffered damage to its hull as a result of the grounding.

Built in 2004, the Panamax bulker is currently chartered to Düsseldorf-based Uniper Global Commodities.

Diana Shipping said that the ship’s employment has been temporarily disrupted due to the incident.

The company did not provide any details related to the possible salvage operations.
