SEVERAL Ulsan terminals in South Korea have banned cargoes containing hazardous substances from being shipped or unloaded from vessels at their berths, following an explosion and fire on board the tanker 'Stolt Groenland'.

The decision was made by the Ulsan administration, regional fisheries agency and the port administration, Yonhap news agency reported.



The authorities have prohibited the shipment and unloading of cargo containing hazardous substances, including various types of oils and gases, at several terminals located under the Ulsan bridge, including terminal number nine, where the tanker caught fire on September 29.



The blaze led to the closure of the bridge for two days while security checks were being conducted.
