Hapag-Lloyd Boxship Briefly Grounds, Hits Crane in Vietnam

A Hapag-Lloyd containership has damaged a gantry crane in Vietnam after it briefly grounded, a company spokesperson confirmed to World Maritime News.

The 2010-built Nagoya Express hit ground after departure in Vietnam but managed to pull itself free.

When returning to berth under pilot advice, the 8,600 TEU containership “touched the gantry crane,” according to the German shipping major’s spokesperson.

The company said that it is investigating the causes of the incidents in close cooperation with authorities and insurance.

According to VnExpress, the incident occurred earlier this month during stormy weather. Namely, the vessel was sailing out of the Hai Phong International Container Terminal on June 7 when the mishap occurred, the media outlet cited a spokesperson of the Maritime Administration of Hai Phong.

Data provided by Marine Traffic shows that the ship is currently anchored off Hai Phong.
