Five Dead, One Injured in Fire at ASL Marine’s Batam Yard

Five people died and one person was injured in a fire which broke out at ASL Marine Holdings’ shipyard in Batam, Indonesia.

The incident, which occurred on September 7, 2017, happened on board a tanker that was being repaired at one of the company’s dry docks.

Initial investigations suggest that the fire started inside and was confined to the pump room, ASL Marine Holdings informed. The company added that there was no explosion at the site.

The deceased and injured workers were employees of ASL Marine Holdings’ subcontractor.

The investigation will continue and work on this vessel will be suspended until the cause of the fire is established.

Relevant authorities in Indonesia are also looking into the cause of the incident.

“We are saddened by this incident and the loss of lives, and we extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims,” ASL Marine Holdings said.
