Collision between Hammonia Thracium and Zoey

About 10km south of mainland Singapore

Singapore StraitAt about 1535hrs on 10 February 2014 (Singapore time), the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore received a report that a collision had occurred between the departing Liberia-flagged containership "Hammonia Thracium" and the Panama-flagged chemical tanker "Zoey" in the Singapore Strait, off Sebarok Island (about 10km south of mainland Singapore).

Prior to the incident, MPA's Port Operations Control Centre provided traffic information to the two vessels and alerted Zoey that the vessel Hammonia Thracium was crossing the traffic lane.

Hammonia Thracium reported that one of her bunker tanks sustained damage, resulting in spillage of some 80 metric tonnes of bunker fuel. Upon notification, MPA immediately dispatched four patrol craft to deal with the spillage. Oil spill response companies have also been activated to support the clean-up efforts.

The two vessels are currently in stable condition outside of Singapore's port limits and are assessing their situations. There is no report of injury, and port operations remain unaffected.

MPA is investigating the cause of the collision.
