Leak Turns Ship's Cargo to Cement

Monday, January 07, 2002
Cement dust aboard a ship bound for Adelaide has been contaminated by sea water, turning the cargo into cement, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has reported. The incident reportedly occurred aboard the CSL Yarra, a 46,000 ton bulk carrier. "A fire hydrant has leaked sea water into a machinery space which has residual cargo from the last discharge," Australian Maritime Union South Australian secretary Rick Newlyn is reported to have said. "It was cement and that's of some concern, but not enough to change the voyage."
