Video: CMA CGM Mumbai Hits Quay in Mumbai Port

Hong Kong-flagged Post Panamax containership CMA CGM Mumbai hit the pier at Jawaharlal Nehru Port, the largest container port in India, on Saturday, October 13, while anchoring.

The pier did not sustain significant damages, the Times of India reported, citing Nhava Sheva police officers. The ship’s bow was scraped in the collision, but the damage is minor.

The 10,000 TEU newbuild is owned by Seaspan Corporation and chartered out to French liner CMA CGM on a three years contract, with options to extend for an additional three years.

The SAVER deign containership was delivered to Seaspan in May this year from Jiangsu Yangzi Xinfu. The ship is deployed on CMA CGM’s French Asia Line, linking Asia to Europe.

The cause of the incident is unknown, however, initial findings indicate that a steering malfunction had occurred.

No injuries have been reported.

World Maritime News is yet to receive a comment from CMA CGM.

A Youtube video showing the incident is embedded below.
