A Panama-flagged cargo vessel ran aground near Philippine Lauis Ledge Lighthouse, off Talisay coast, Cebu, on August 3.

The incident occurred while the 8,800 dwt ship Arikun was entering the traffic separation scheme, south Cebu-Mactan, the Philippine Coast Guard said.

As informed, the ill-fated vessel had 18 crew on board when it grounded.

Following the refloating, the 2007-built singledecker with 287,167 liters of fuel onboard was towed to Cebu International Port for inspections.

The coast guard added that the Marine Environmental Protection Unit – Central Visayas conducted an assessment and detected no oil spill.

An investigation into the causes of the grounding has been launched.

Built at Vietnamese shipyard Ben Kien, Arikun is operated by Taiwanese-based shipping company Wisdom Marine Lines, VesselsValue’s data shows.
