THE 6,572-TEU YM Mandate, that had been leaking fuel oil though a cracked hull near New Jersey's Bayonne Brudge, has left to undergo repairs at different a facility at Staten Island, said the US Coast Guard.

The Liberian-flagged containership had stopped leaking last week after the spill was reported from the 300-metre long vessel, reported New York's MarineLink.



The Coast Guard said box ship departed the Global Container Terminal after bunker fuel was removed from the affected tank, the ship was cleaned and a dive survey confirmed no additional damage. AIS ship tracking data shows the YM Mandate is currently moored at a New York container terminal.



'The response was quick and efficient thanks to the strong coordination of all agencies involved,?? said Lt Cmdr Ryan Clark, Coast Guard incident commander. 'We take any release of oil into the maritime environment extremely seriously and we greatly appreciate the efforts of our partner agencies.??
