An LNG carrier owned by Norwegian LNG transportation company Awilco LNG has been struck by another vessel off Singapore.

The incident involving the 155,900 cbm LNG tanker WilForce occurred on May 30, 2019, the company said.

No crew injuries or spills have been reported onboard the WilForce.

The 2013-built vessel has been sent to a yard in Singapore for class inspection and hull repairs. It is currently unclear how long the vessel will be offhire, Awilco LNG added.

As informed, the vessel has full insurance cover for repair expenses and loss of hire, subject to a deductible.

“Based on a preliminary assessment of facts Awilco LNG holds the other vessel fully and completely liable for the collision, and the company expects to recover all costs, losses and expenses including deductibles in due course,” the company said in a statement.

The second ship involved in the incident has not been identified.
