Tanker, Container Ship Collide in Singapore Waters

Friday, June 30, 2006
Reports indicate that a supertanker and a container ship collided in Singapore waters southeast of St John's Island. But the incident did not result in any oil pollution or casualty, says the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. It has deployed an anti-pollution craft to monitor the situation and is investigating the incident. MPA says Greece-registered supertanker, Astro Luna, was heading west in the Singapore Strait when it collided with Panama-registered container ship, YM Earth. At the time of the collision, Astro Luna was not carrying any oil. YM Earth, which was loaded with containers, was then approaching the Eastern Pilot Boarding Ground 'A' enroute for the Tanjong Pagar terminal. Source: Channel News Asia
