LPG Tanker Clashes with Fishing Vessel off Honolulu

The LPG tanker Pertusola, carrying 2,300 metric tons of propane, has collided with a commercial fishing vessel off the coast of Oahu, Honolulu, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The vessels collided some 20 miles southeast of Oahu in the afternoon hours of August 7.

The USCG said that Sector Honolulu watchstanders received a report from the fishing vessel’s captain of the incident at around 2 p.m.

The officials deployed the cutter Kittiwake and a 45-foot response boat from Station Honolulu to assess the scene, verify vessel damages and any potential pollution.

There were no reports of injuries nor pollution following the collision between the fishing vessel, Helen, and the Italy-flagged LPG tanker.

An investigation into the cause of the incident was launched.
