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.
