Docked Vessel Struck, Damaged

Monday, March 01, 2004
General Maritime Management reported last week that their vessel, the Genmar Alexandra, (oil tanker, built 1992, double hull, 102262 dwt) while safely docked at a terminal in St. Charles, La., was struck by the bulk carrier Bright State, (built 1989, approx. 36000 grt). The collision resulted in a hole in one of the Genmar Alexandra's auxiliary fuel tanks and the release of approximately 500 barrels of fuel oil into the river. There were no injuries and no cargo was lost. General Maritime Management has activated its emergency response plan and its U.S. spill response contractor Gallagher Marine Systems is onsite. Oil containment and recovery operations have been initiated in conjunction with the U.S. Coast Guard. According to a report from Lloyd's Casualty Service, the oil has been largely contained and is dissipating.
