JAPANESE-owned, but Singapore-based Ocean Network Express (ONE) and Japan's Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) have conducted a joint crisis management drill based on a simulated scenario of a fire and explosion on a ONE vessel.

This is ONE's second joint crisis management drill this year. The joint exercise involved 100 participants from ONE's headquarters in Singapore, ONE Japan in Tokyo and MOL head office in Japan, who executed procedures, reviewed possible responses and examined emergency measures.



The simulated scenario imagined a fire inside a container aboard a ONE chartered vessel at Isle Bay, Japan. Subsequently, an explosion was triggered despite fire-fighting efforts by the crew.



The incident resulted in casualties and containers fell overboard. Upon receiving an initial urgent incident report, a crisis management centre was set up by ONE HQ to handle first response tasks such as information gathering and communication flow process among related parties.



Then ONE assumed a crucial role, together with related authorities in Japan, the shipowner and the ship manager, to control and manage the situation.



ONE then took measures to mitigate the negative impact on customers as well as the general public, cooperating with MOL and related parties, by publishing updates through media statements and advisories as the situation progressed.



Through the simulated drill, ONE's crisis management capability is strengthened to be constantly ready to respond in times of emergencies, said a company statement.
