Grounded Singapore container ship – Chinese despatch vessels for recovery and pollution clean-up

Singapore flag vessel m/v Bareli (35,881gt built 2004) is aground in Chinese waters having suffered hull damage.  The crew has been rescued. The ship normally plies between ports in Africa and the Far East.

The Fujian Maritime Rescue Center said that rescuers are working to retrieve the ship's fuel oil which has leaked into the sea, and they have called ship repair factories to send workers to help offload 1,913 containers loaded on the ship.

The stranding ocurred near Jiangyin Port in Fuzhou, capital of southeast China's Fujian Province. Twenty-five containers have been removed from the grounded Singapore ship and workers endeavour to recover the ship's fuel oil which has leaked into the sea.

Chinese maritime rescue authorities say they have dispatched a dozen vessels to join the clean-up and recovery operation, and have set up barriers to block the oil spill from spreading.
