Two containerships operated by Quanzhou Ansheng Shipping, a shipping unit of Renjian Group, were involved in an accident at Guangzhou’s Nansha Port yesterday.
The 4,380 teu Ren Jian 15 was trying to berth at the port and went out of control, running into the 698-teu Hai Su 10, which was berthed at the port.
Several containers on Hai Su 10 fell off and 16 containers were damaged in the incident. Both ships suffered damages to their hulls.
Hai Su 10 listed to one side following the collision and the port deployed an emergency team to stabilise the vessel after pumping water out of the vessel.
According to Guangzhou Maritime Safety Administration, there were no injuries or pollution caused by the incident.
Investigations are also underway to find out the cause of the incident.
