The Cambodia-flag freighter Marina Bay was berthed at Lagos, Nigeria, when it was struck by the Cyprus-flag bulker Yannis, on March 3, Lloyds Shipping Intelligence Service said on Monday. The 14,956 dwt Marina Bay has sustained serious damage. The forward part of the vessel is on the bottom with water ingress in No.1 hold, which spread to No.2 and No.3 holds. Marina Bay’s cargo of bagged rice has swelled after it got wet. The 24,105 dwt Yannis sustained only minor damage in the collision. - (Reuters)
