Two bulk carriers, UK-flagged Eden Bay and Bahamas-flagged Mazury collided in the Fazendinha anchorage area, Amazon river, Brazil on Wednesday, October 11.

The 2008-built Eden Bay is owned by Pioneer Marine, while Mazuri is listed as part of Polish shipping company Polsteam’s fleet.

As informed, the incident took place during maneuvers at the anchorage.

“During correcting of the position of the ship, the strong current lifted the stern of MV Mazury on the bow of MV Eden Bay. Both ships were contacted,” a Polsteam spokesperson told World Maritime News.

MV Mazury sustained a dent in the hull, however, there was no damage to the ship’s mechanical equipment on the stern or the railing, a company statement reads.

“MV Mazury is currently looking to inspect technical inspectors about the extent of the damage. The ship is fully operational, ” the company spokesperson added.

Eden Bay is reported to have also suffered dents to its superstructure and hull portside.

There have been no reports of injuries to either of the crews nor environmental pollution in the area resulting from the incident.

The cause of the collision is yet to be determined.
