The Coast Guard is continuing to oversee the response to a motor tanker that suffered a hull breach to their ballast tank on the Hudson River near Stuyvesant, N.Y. Thursday.


Coast Guard Sector New York was notified Thursday that the 600-foot motor tanker, Stena Primorsk, began listing after suffering a hull breach while transiting from Albany, N.Y. via the Hudson River, carrying light crude oil. The tanker is currently at anchor nearby in Stuyvesant Anchorage.
The tanker crew reported that no pollution or injuries resulted from the incident. Coast Guard Auxiliary and New York State Police air crews performed over flights of the Hudson River and reported no pollution in vicinity of tanker.


The owners of the Stena Primorsk have contracted commercial environmental response experts to monitor for any pollution and assist in the salvage of the vessel. There continues to be no reports of pollution from the Stena Primorsk. Divers are scheduled to conduct a thorough examination of the ballast tanks today.
Coast Guard Sector New York has established a safety zone around the vessel between Matthew Point to the north and the northern tip of Rattlesnake Island to the south restricting vessel traffic from transiting in this area until further notice.


Coast Guard Sector New York pollution and marine emergency responders, working closely with state and local partners, are continuing to investigate the incident.
