  • Collision between Lime Galaxy and Feihe

 

On 29 January 2014, at about 1830hrs (Singapore Time), the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) received a report that the departing Hong Kong-flagged chemical tanker, "Lime Galaxy" had collided with the arriving China-flagged containership, "Feihe" at about 2.7 km, south of Jurong Island.

Feihe reported that one of her bunker tanks sustained damage, resulting in some spillage of bunker fuel. Upon notification, MPA immediately dispatched three patrol craft to deal with the spill. Oil spill response companies were also activated to support the clean up efforts.

The two vessels involved in the collision are currently safely anchored and in stable condition. MPA has issued navigational broadcasts to ships to navigate with caution when in the vicinity of the incident site. There is no report of injury, and traffic in the port and the Strait of Singapore remain unaffected.

 

  • Contact between vessels NYK Themis and AZ Fuzhou


Separately, at about 0410hrs on 30 January 2014, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) also received a report that a Panama-flagged containership, "NYK Themis", had collided into a barge "AZ Fuzhou" , at East Keppel Fairway at about 4 km south of Marina South. The barge was being towed by tug "AZ Carnation" at the time. Prior to the incident, MPA's Port Operations Control Centre informed NYK Themis of the presence of AZ Fuzhou in the fairway.

NYK Themis reported that one of her bunker tanks sustained damage, resulting in some spillage of bunker fuel. Upon notification, MPA immediately dispatched four MPA craft to deal with the spill. Oil spill response companies were also activated to support the clean up efforts. The two vessels involved in the collision are currently safely anchored and in stable condition. There is no report of injury, and port operations remain unaffected.

MPA is investigating the cause of both casualties.
