THE Mediterranean Shipping Company's 4,651-TEU MSC Idil has suffered an on board explosion that damaged the hull in the fuel and cargo areas, causing the ship to list after taking water.

No injuries were reported to the ship's 25-man as a result of the incident, which took place 60 nautical miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

London's Containerisation International reported the explosion was caused by welding work. The report also said the crew was controlling the ship's stability by using onboard pumps to manage flooding.

The US Coast Guard has concluded that there is no immediate threat to the ship, which carries fuel oil and diesel when the explosion occurred.
