CMA CGM Florida sails to Shanghai leaking oil after bulker collision

THE 5,095-TEU CMA CGM Florida has continued to Shanghai after colliding with the 175,569 dwt bulker Chou Shan, and spilling oil over an area two miles long and 200 miles wide.

The CMA CGM Florida's tank, containing 645 tonnes of bunker fuel continued to leak as the ship made its way to Shanghai's Yangshan terminal 124 miles southeast of the collision. The bulker Chou Shan has arrived in a ship repair yard in Zhoushan, and appears to have suffered limited damage.

Despite damage to its fuel tank, hull and containers, the UK-flagged box ship seems to have escaped the worst after remaining on the scene for more than a day, reports London's Containerisation International.

"The ship is not in danger of sinking and is sailing to Yangshan now," a Shanghai Maritime Safety Administration official told Lloyd's List. "It may go to a shiprepair yard later as the clean-up operations continue."

The 2005-built bulker owned by Taipei's Sincere Navigation hit the CMA CGM Florida amidships northeast of Shanghai early Tuesday morning, and suffered damage on its port side and to four rows of containers. 

Shanghai safety officials deployed a five-vessel clean up squadron, and "operations will continue for a while as the boxship is going to Yangshan with a leaking tank, so more spills may occur", the official said. No containers have fallen into the sea and no one was injured. 

Of the bulker, Sincere Navigation vice-president Lee I-Jen said: "There is some damage to the vessel. But things appear to be not too bad. The ship was not loaded when the accident happened. It still had power so it sailed to the repair yard by itself."

A team of investigators from the UK's Marine Accident Investigation Bureau has been deployed to China to investigate. The CMA CGM Florida was on its way back from the US east coast via Panama.
