China: Containers fall on bunkering vessel at Tianjin

14 Jun 2018

Several containers on board the CSCL Spring fell onto the bunkering vessel Jinyou8 at the Pacific International Terminal in Tianjin Port, China during a cargo operation on 11 June.

The stack of five 40-foot containers fell due to an alleged failure of the twistlock system occurring when the units were being lifted from the vessel by a crane, according to Chinese shipping media CNSS.

No injuries nor fuel were spilled in the accident on the bunkering vessel; CSCL Spring left port on schedule the next day.
