MSC Boxship, Chinese Engineering Ship Collide off China

Panama-flagged containership MSC Luciana collided with the Chinese engineering vessel Su Lian Hai 0118 off the Port Caofeidian in China on November 21, 2017.

The engineering vessel sustained severe starboard damage resulting in water ingress and putting its crew of 16 members in danger, as informed by China’s Rescue and Salvage Department of Transport Ministry.

The vessel’s hull was ruptured in the collision which resulted in a starboard hole ranging between 2-3 meters in height.

Once at the scene, the rescue service managed to connect a tow line to the stricken vessel and tow the ship to the shallow waters of a nearby beach. The ship’s 16 crew members are all reported to be safe.

The 11,668 TEU MSC boxship, built in 2009, is said to have suffered minor damage in the collision and as World Maritime News understands no crew members were injured in the incident.

Based on the ship’s latest AIS data, it is fully laden and underway using engine, heading toward Busan where it is expected to arrive on Friday, November 24.
