Alnic MC Cleared to Discharge Cargo after Collision with US Navy Ship

The Liberian-flagged tanker Alnic MC, which was involved in a collision with US Navy’s ship USS John S. McCain on August 21, is currently discharging its cargo of 12,000 MT of fuel oil.

The ship’s manager Stealth Maritime Corporation said the cargo discharge was cleared by Singaporean authorities.

“Once the discharge is completed Alnic MC will proceed to a Singaporean anchorage to undergo further assessment and repair. The crew will continue to operate and maintain the vessel during this process,” the company said in an update.

The tanker’s manager informed earlier that its ship sustained a gash to the starboard side of the bow above the waterline. There were no injuries to crew and no reported pollution of the Singapore Strait.

The Alnic MC was transiting from Mai Liao in Taiwan to Singapore with a partial load of 12,000MT of fuel oil at the time of the incident, the company explained.

“Stealth Maritime Corporation is continuing to cooperate fully with all of the relevant authorities in their investigations into the collision,” the latest update further reads.
